Extensive efforts in cancer research over the past decades have markedly improved diagnosis and treatments, leading to better outcomes for cancer patients. Paradoxically, however, these discoveries have begun to shed light on a level of complexity that rules out the emergence of a universal cancer treatment. As any tumor is now known to be...

Maintenance of complex machines or assemblies is an essential part of machine-building companies. Besides building and designing machines, they are responsible for replacing components and restoring the machines to maintain good operational conditions. An optimal maintenance plan ensures that customers spend less on maintenance and remain...

High-strength steel (HSS) has higher strength but lower ductility than mild steel. The cross-section of the structural members may be reduced using HSS instead of mild steel, provided the buckling of elements does not govern the failure. The reduced member size benefits the environment and economy by means of less energy consumption, less carbon...

To improve the safety of commercial air transport, pilots are required to train on simulators to recognize the characteristics of an impeding stall and subsequently correctly recover from it. To prevent negative training, it is important that the accuracy of the used simulation models is high. A manner to model the nonlinear, unsteady...

When designing wearables that interface with the human head, face and neck, designers and engineers consider human senses, ergonomics and comfort. A dense 3D pressure discomfort threshold map could be helpful, but does not exist yet. Differences in pressure discomfort threshold for areas of the head, neck and face were recorded, to create a 3D...

Chemical plants face safety hazards and security threats that may induce catastrophic scenarios. Safety and security barriers are employed widely to protect chemical plants from accidental and intentional undesired events and mitigate consequences. Managing safety and security barriers effectively and economically is a research topic with...

A Spiking neural network (SNN) is a type of artificial neural network which encodes information using spike timing, network structure, and synaptic weights to emulate the information processing function of the human brain. Within an SNN, it is always required to support the spike transmission that travels between neurons(array). This thesis aims...

Modeling the relationship between rainfall and runoff is a longstanding challenge in hydrology and is crucial for informed water management decisions. Recently, Deep Learning models, particularly Long short-term memory (LSTM), have shown promising results in simulating this relationship. The Transformer, a newly proposed deep learning...

Frequentist statistics and Bayesian statistics are the two main approaches to statistical inference. The frequentist approach is commonly integrated into academic curricula, while the Bayesian approach is less frequently employed. However a comparison of the approaches, further investigating their shortcomings and advantages, might give a better...

Strain hardening cementitious composites (SHCC) can be used to reduce the amount of reinforcement needed to control crack widths. SHCC has a strain hardening behaviour with dense micro-cracking, which makes it more ductile compared to conventional concrete. Conventional concrete can be used in the non-critical locations. An interface is formed...

Ethiopia’s energy demand is expected to increase sevenfold in the coming 30 years, resulting in increased variable renewable electricity (VRE) production by solar PV and wind. Energy storage acts as a buffer that mitigates the effects of over- or under-capacity in production by VRE. With 97% of global bulk energy storage, pumped hydro storage is...

The ability to model other agents can be of great value in multi-agent sequential decision making problems and has become more accessible due to the introduction of deep learning into reinforcement learning. In this study, the aim is to investigate the usefulness of modelling other agents using variational autoencoder based models in partially...

With the current focus on climate change, the shipping industry is forced to decarbonise its fleet. The need for decarbonisation is not only fuelled by the aspirations of the sector but also by laws and regulations from countries and organisations. As these laws are gradually tightening and there is not one clear technical or operational...

In order to limit the global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius, all sectors have to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and become more sustainable. This also includes the building sector, which is in Europe responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption (European Commission, 2020). A way to work towards this goal is by retrofitting...

Indoor positioning systems cannot rely on conventional localization methods, such as GPS, to locate devices because of interference with the structure of buildings. One solution is to use magnetic positioning, which is based on spatial variations in the patterns of the ambient magnetic field. To model magnetic fields, Gaussian process regression...

One of the fundamental goals for the success of a construction project is found to be completion within the budget. To reach this goal, cost estimation is a key process which can be divided into the estimation of direct and indirect costs. Unlike direct costs, indirect costs are not directly connected with the performance of any particular...

A considerable share of the global greenhouse gases is caused by the construction and real estate sector, but the increasing awareness on global climate change within the industry caused the emergence of multiple voluntary environmental certifications. The effects of environmental certification on office rents have received considerable...

The EAD metric is widely used in the calculations for the capital requirements concerning Counterparty Credit Risk (CCR). In this thesis we compare several methods for calculating this EAD. Basel III gives us two methods, the Standardized Approach for CCR (SA-CCR) and the Internal Model Method (IMM). Furthermore, we introduce an integrated...

A significant decrease in greenhouse gas emissions can be achieved by including a prediction of future power consumption in the control of ships’ power plants during transits. Moreover, including a prediction of power consumption in the Energy Management System (EMS) during Dynamic Positioning (DP) operations can also contribute to a reduction...
