Data assimilation methods have been implemented on a slope stability problem, and the performance of different constitutive models and data assimilation schemes has been investigated. In the first part, a data assimilation scheme called the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) is implemented using a finite element model (FEM) and its performance with...

Lubrication forces play a major role in the behaviour of fluid–solid systems, where they affect the collisions between particles. Current implementations of lubrication forces in unresolved simulations often suffer from shortcomings, such as neglecting parts of the physics or relying on arbitrarily defined parameters. In this short...

Multi-modal distributions of some physics-based model parameters are often encountered in engineering due to different situations such as a change in some environmental conditions, and the presence of some types of damage and non-linearity. In statistical model updating, for locally identifiable parameters, it can be anticipated that multi...

The work presented in this paper investigates the ability of continuum damage models to accurately predict matrix failure and ply splitting. Two continuum damage model approaches are implemented that use different stress–strain measures. The first approach is based on small-strain increments and the Cauchy stress, while the second approach...

Previous studies revealed that Building Information Modeling (BIM) has the potential to reduce project uncertainties, design errors, change orders, and delays, which might facilitate achieving effective dispute management in the construction industry. However, research into the adoption of BIM to holistically enhance effective dispute...

Meshed offshore grids (MOGs) present a viable option for a reliable bulk power transmission topology. The station-level control of MOGs requires faster dynamics along with multiple objective functions, which is realized by the model predictive control (MPC). This paper provides control, and protection design for the Modular Multilevel...

There has so far been no shared understanding of validity in agent-based simulation. We here conceptualise validation as systematically substantiating the premises on which conclusions from simulation analysis for a particular modelling context are built. Given such a systematic perspective, validity of agent-based models cannot be ensured if...

Embedded load-bearing laminated glass connections have gained popularity in recent years due to their mechanical performance and aesthetic appeal. However, there is a paucity of data on their structural behaviour across a range of temperatures that may arise in building applications and there is also no simplified mechanics-based model for...

The pledge for a carbon-free energy system in 2050 requires significant investments into renewable energy sources (RES). The relevant questions are: what technologies to select, where to build them, how much the capacities are, and at what cost. In order to answer these techno-economic questions, optimization models are commonly used to sketch a...

Current aircraft maintenance ensures safe and reliable flight operations based on inspections repeated at fixed time intervals. The time interval between inspections is often much shorter than the average life of aircraft components, in an effort to timely detect potential failures. While this approach successfully prevents most potential...

The interest in developing electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles has increased sharply in recent years. A concern for passenger acceptance of the new type of vehicle is that people may experience motion sickness. This is because eVTOL flight profiles are different from the motion conditions that people have previously...

Extensive electrification of the inland shipping sector is necessary to achieve the EU goals to be climate neutral and increase inland shipping by 50\% by 2050. This requires a thoughtful and large-scale roll-out of new charging stations layouts, for ships with relatively high and largely varying energy demands. Current approaches for optimal...

To overcome the problem of wave-induced vessel motions on the crane tip, technologies have been developed to compensate for these motions. Most vessels nowadays, are equipped with dynamic positioning systems, these systems reduce the yaw, surge and sway movement of the vessel. This leaves, the motions roll, pitch and heave uncompensated. To...

Electric vehicles (EVs) equipped with vehicle-integrated photovoltaics (VIPV) and EVs with vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology can support in overcoming power grid challenges emerging from the energy transition. Despite the widespread benefits that VIPV and V2G have to offer, their potential impact on battery life governs their economic viability....

The need for relating stakeholders with requirements and the need for systems modeling are the main drivers for this thesis. Relating stakeholders with requirements is beneficial in order to balance the interests of all stakeholders associated with complex design projects. The variability in types of stakeholders and information abundance in...

What exactly causes the emergence of the attitude-behaviour gap, and to what extent, is not fully understood. Previous academic research has shown that many barriers to adoption remain, and that difficulty lies in the heterogeneity of consumers. Through the use of a simulation model this thesis explores the emergence of the attitude-behaviour...

With the increasing environmental concerns, the world is moving towards rapid decarbonization, and to meet the growing energy demand, more renewable energy sources like solar, Wind are getting added to the existing Distribution grid. The addition of new loads like Electric vehicles (EV), Heat pumps, etc. is putting additional pressure on the...

In this paper, the emissions mitigation potential of implementing operational towing at major European airports is evaluated. Using mixed-integer linear programming, a scenario simulating mixed taxiing operations is used to find the relationship between fixed vehicle costs and target emission savings at an airport and European level. Using...

Because of the sustainability transition in the asphalt industry, it is increasingly popular to apply reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) instead of new asphalt. Then, less new material is needed and the amount of waste products is reduced. However, there are questions regarding the performance of asphalt mixtures with high RAP percentages,...

In a dynamic or disruptive situation, such as disasters, a fully mobile and decentralized infrastructure-less network seems to be a viable option for communication. Citizens are confronted with challenges such as complicated deployment of these networks, resource-constrained mobile phones and mobility. This requires communication networks to...
