Airline reserve fleet capacity is a strategic resource that provides airlines the means to add robustness to their schedules. This paper focuses on leveraging past data on airlines' execution of planned schedules (resulting delays, cancellations and missed connections), along with the disruptions that prohibited the flawless execution of the...

Industrialised Construction gains traction as it is seen as a solution to create resource efficiencies in the Built Environment. In practice, this increase in industrialisation leads to an increase in standardisation efforts. Meanwhile, the Circular Economy is incrementally being introduced to the Built Environment. Circular Building is often...

As an alternative to kerosene (Jet-A1), green hydrogen is considered a potential solution to reduce the environmental impact of the medium-range aviation industry. While the technical feasibility of liquid hydrogen (LH2)-powered aircraft is already being researched and demonstrated, the required infrastructure, as well as its impact on the...

This study presents an innovative algorithm designed to optimise the layout of floating offshore wind farms (FOWFs), addressing inter-array cable length and the number of anchor structures required. This research is particularly noteworthy as no prior work has been conducted on wind farm layout optimisation for FOWFs. The Local-Search-Inspired...

As the aviation industry has agreed on the goal of achieving net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050, various mitigation strategies are being deployed and developed. This paper focuses on reducing emissions at airports by towing aircraft instead of taxiing with their main engines; dispatch towing. This is done by developing a model to optimise the...

The importance of climate change is getting increasingly more attention from all stakeholders in urban development. This results in the energy network operator being increasingly involved in the partnerships needed to realize new urban area development projects. Current projects have been experiencing delays due to the electricity grid not being...

Vos, G.M. (author)
This thesis deals with multipliers and transference on noncommutative Lp-spaces. It falls within the realm of noncommutative harmonic analysis, i.e. harmonic analysis on noncommutative spaces. Such spaces appear in several areas of mathematics, such as non-abelian groups, quantum groups, noncommutative geometry and the general theory of operator...

Borst, M.J. (author)
For a simple graph Γ and for unital C<sup>*</sup>-algebras with GNS-faithful states (A<sub>v</sub>,φ<sub>v</sub>) for v∈VΓ, we consider the reduced graph product (A,φ)=⁎<sub>v,Γ</sub>(A<sub>v</sub>,φ<sub>v</sub>), and show that if every C<sup>*</sup>-algebra A<sub>v</sub> has the completely contractive approximation property (CCAP) and...

Dynamic Thermal Rating (DTR) enhances grid flexibility by adapting line capabilities to weather conditions. For this purpose, DTR-based technologies require reliable and continuous measurement of the conductor temperature along the line route, which could hinder their wide-scale deployment due to the prohibitively high number of required...

In this article, we’ll show how to solve the time-fractional seventh-order Lax’s Korteweg–de Vries and Kaup–Kupershmidt equations analytically using the homotopy perturbation approach, the Adomian decomposition method, and the Elzaki transformation. The KdV equation is a general integrable equation with an inverse scattering transform-based...

Offshore wind energy is expected to be the most significant source of future electricity supply in Europe. Offshore wind farms are located far from the shores, requiring a fleet of various types of vessels to access sites when maintaining offshore wind turbines. The employment of the vessels is costly, accounting for the majority of the total...

We develop a discrete framework for the interpolation of Banach spaces, which contains the well-known real and complex interpolation methods, but also more recent methods like the Rademacher, γ- and ℓ<sup>q</sup>-interpolation methods. Our framework is based on a sequential structure imposed on a Banach space, which allows us to deduce...

Background: Increased maritime trade has led to a surge in drayage operations, causing congestion and environmental issues in port areas. Truck Appointment Systems (TASs) are commonly used to manage truck arrival rates, yet transparency and equity in slot allocation remain problematic, fostering distrust between Licensed Motor Carriers (LMCs)...

As robotic systems such as autonomous cars and delivery drones assume greater roles and responsibilities within society, the likelihood and impact of catastrophic software failure within those systems is increased. To aid researchers in the development of new methods to measure and assure the safety and quality of robotics software, we...

Hospitals in Europe produce approximately 6 million tons of medical waste annually, about one-third of this originating in operating rooms. Most of it is solid waste, which can be recycled if bodily fluids do not contaminate it. Only 2–3% of hospital waste must be disposed of as infectious waste, and this is much lower than the 50–70% of...
