Transport infrastructure owners are moving from reactive toward proactive infrastructure management. This involves computation of costs associated with failure or maintenance, including expected transport delays. These delays are often computed by multiplying additional travel time by the number of travellers. However, this does not reflect...

We present a variational assimilation technique (4D-Var) to reconstruct time resolved incompressible turbulent flows from measurements on two orthogonal 2D planes. The proposed technique incorporates an error term associated to the flow dynamics. It is therefore a compromise between a strong constraint assimilation procedure (for which the...

Intimate contact development under LAFP-specific thermal and mechanical boundary conditions/interactions and the effect of process parameters are investigated. One-layer, unidirectional strips of CF/PEKK material were placed with different process parameters on a flat tool surface to create different intimate contact conditions. The concept...

3D city models are increasingly used to maintain and improve urban infrastructure. Keeping 3D city models accurate and up-to-date is essential for municipalities to make decisions in a time of strongly increasing urbanization. 3D information provided by airborne laser scanning (ALS) is widely used for generating 3D city models. However, ALS data...

When Public Transport Administrations propose changes in fare schemes or increased fares, they are often met with concerns regarding the proposed fare schemes fairness. Implicit in these concerns is an understanding of relations governing land use and public transport, impacting equity. In this paper, we use socio-economic statistics of...

The Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier is an icon of Dutch hydraulic engineering. Downstream of the barrier, large local erosion pits (scour holes) have formed adjacent to the applied bed protection after its construction. It was expected during the design phase that these would develop, but both the magnitude of the scour hole depth as well as...

Tubular adhesive joints, used in truss structures to join pultruded carbon fibre-reinforced polymer members to aluminium nodes, are modelled with varying dimensions. The numerical model uses a Cohesive Zone Modelling formulation with a trapezoidal traction-separation law for the adhesive layer, and experimental tests are carried to validate...

Understanding how inequalities are transmitted through generations and restrict upward spatial mobility has long been a concern of geographic research. Previous research has identified that the neighborhood in which someone grows up is highly predictive of the type of neighborhood he or she will live in as an independent adult. What remains...

This paper presents a new dynamic inflow model for vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs). The model uses the principle of Duhamel's integral. The indicial function of the inflow- and crossflow-induction required to apply Duhamel's integral is represented by an exponential function depending on the thrust coefficient and the azimuthal position....

Weather and climate influence life in many ways; varying climatic conditions can be<br/>associated with varying human cultures and on a day-to-day basis, the weather influences our plans and mood. As such, a proper prediction of the weather is of great importance. Ultimately, the weather is fueled by solar irradiation, which changes sharply over...

A novel machine learning algorithm is presented, serving as a data-driven turbulence modeling tool for Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulations. This machine learning algorithm, called the Tensor Basis Random Forest (TBRF), is used to predict the Reynolds-stress anisotropy tensor, while guaranteeing Galilean invariance by making use...

In this paper we discuss scheduling of semi-cyclic discrete-event systems, for which the set of operations may vary over a limited set of possible sequences of operations. We introduce a unified modeling framework in which different types of semi-cyclic discrete-event systems can be described by switching max-plus linear (SMPL) models. We use...

Intertidal flats — regions of estuaries that emerge every tide from the water — form unique ecosystems. Benthic communities living in the bed are a valuable food source for wading birds. Salt marshes present on these flats further enhance the biodiversity. Through the damping of waves, intertidal flats also contribute to the safety of the...

Airports are important transportation hubs that reside in the heart of modern civilizations.They are of major economic and symbolic value for countries but are thereforealso attractive targets for adversaries. Over the years we have observed successful andunsuccessful terrorist attacks at airports, of which the recent Brussels Airport attack...

In practice, High-voltage (HV) cables are occasionally exposed to impulse and superimposed transient conditions, which may initiate partial discharges (PD) temporarily. Whether such PDs persist under AC voltage after the transient conditions have vanished, is at focus in the research described in this paper. Since for cross-linked polyethylene ...

The vast size of a modern interconnected power grid precludes controlling and operating it as a single object. Subdividing a power grid into a number of internally coherent areas allows to cope with its inherent complexity and to enable more efficient control structures. This thesis focuses on discovering the power system structure to facilitate...

In the last decades, tremendous efforts have been put in advancements of wind turbine technology by scientific research and industrial developments. One of the focal areas has been the upscaling of turbines to increase power capacity. However, by enlarging turbine sizes, the square-cube law dictates rising costs per unit of power capacity. To...

Expanded use of reduced complexity approaches in epidemiology and environmental justice investigations motivates detailed evaluation of these modeling approaches. Chemical transport models (CTMs) remain the most complete representation of atmospheric processes but are limited in applications that require large numbers of runs, such as those that...

Armour systems for ballistic protection can be made from many materials. One type of material used in armour systems is ceramic. Ceramic materials, such as alumina and silicon carbide, can be beneficial in an armour system because of their high hardness and relatively low weight. The high hardness of the ceramic potentially causes a projectile...

In this thesis, we present numerical techniques for analyzing vibro-acoustic problems that emerge from the coupling of elastic structures with fluid domains. The main analysis tool used for numerical modelling is the Finite Element Technique (FEM). By using FEM, the goal of our research was to either improve the already available techniques or...
