Fluid accumulation in the human body is, in many cases, a symptom of some underlying pathological condition. Most common examples include edema, ascites, pleural effusion, and internal bleeding. Currently available non-invasive methods to assess fluid accumulation in the body are mainly imaging-based (i.e. ultrasound, computed tomography). This...

Physical activity and mobility are important indicators of the recovery process of patients in the general ward of the hospital. Currently, monitoring mobility of hospitalized patients relies largely on direct observation from the caregivers. Accelerometers have the potential to quantify physical activity of patients objectively and without...

Given its geographical location and history, water defense is of utmost importance for the Netherlands. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) offers a promising approach for system identification of hydraulic structures in this water defense system. The aim of SHM is to set sensors on structures and use the monitored responses to identify...

Velocities derived from X-band radar were compared to depth averaged ADCP measurements in a complex tidal inlet system at Ameland, the Netherlands. Inclusion of depth assimilation and ensemble averaging in radar calculations led to smaller differences between ADCP and radar. The observed differences were clustered and related to water level...

Road damage detection is important for road safety and road maintenance planning. Road surface anomalies, like potholes, cracks and ravelling, affect driving conditions, such as driving comfort and safety, noise emission, load loss of trucks, increase of fuel consumption and traffic circulation. Locali- sation of these anomalies allows for...

Inter-Autonomous System (AS) route monitoring is the process of collecting the inter-AS routing information. This information flows on the Internet in the form of BGP UPDATE messages, and the BGP data are the messages obtained by the monitors. Existing methods of monitor placement rely on the network topology which provides inadequate visibility...

It is estimated that about 400.000 houses in the Netherlands – both shallow and wooden pile foundations – could be facing problems with their foundations. Although, house owners are becoming increasingly aware of the fact that problems (and thereby costs) can be prevented if remedial measures are taken in time. Monitoring of the foundation can...

In 2008 the Red Cross Red Crescent (RCRC) started with Forecast-based Financing pilots to improve existing Early-Warning Early Action systems. Forecast-based financing is a new methodology to prepare, deliver and respond in a more effective and efficient manner, based on hazard forecasts. Actions are triggered when a forecast exceeds a danger...

At mass events, pedestrians can experience the level of crowdedness as unsafe, unpleasant and stressful. To gain a better understanding of perceived crowdedness, the effects of personal, trip and event characteristics at an event are researched. Data collection was performed by a simultaneous survey and monitoring study at the TT Festival in...

Wind energy has emerged as a promising alternative to fossil fuel energy sources over the last two decades partly due to considerable reductions in the cost of power production. A common trend towards cost reduction has been to build larger and lighter wind turbines. These produce more power per unit and use less material. Another strategy for...

Humanity is facing large scale environmental challenges emerging from the anthropogenic climate change. Greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) are widely considered to be the main driver of the changing climate. With the built environment currently being accountable for about 40% for our total GHG emissions there is a great urgency to act and change our...
