With the increasing availability of sensor data to monitor the health of systems and components, maintenance is encountering a shift from the traditional preventive and corrective methodologies to a predictive approach. Given that maintenance, repair and overhaul are a significant operational cost to organizations, it is imperative that the...

Many types of database management systems exist, but finding the one that is right for a specific use case is becoming increasingly more difficult. Benchmarks allow one to compare various systems, but in a world where distributed DBMSs are increasingly used for mission critical purposes, we find most existing benchmarks neglect fault tolerance...

Nature-based solutions (NBS) for hydro-meteorological risks (HMRs) reduction and management are becoming increasingly popular, but challenges such as the lack of well-recognised standard methodologies to evaluate their performance and upscale their implementation remain. We systematically evaluate the current state-of-the art on the models...

Maritime ports are an integral part of global trade and the supply network system. An upcoming paradigm for innovation in this system is that of the Physical Internet (PI). This highly advanced way of shipping will present a very different logistics environment with respective challenges for maritime ports. For those investing in or operating...

Surrogate measures of safety (SMoS) play an important role in detecting traffic conflicts and in traffic safety assessment. However, the underlying assumptions of SMoS are different and a certain SMoS may be adequate/inadequate for different applications. A comprehensive approach to evaluate the validity and applicability of SMoS is lacking...

The Paris Agreement requires building retrofitting practices to be more efficient and effective. However, the current practice for building energy retrofitting is lacking behind, and one reason for that is the time-consuming process of energy credit evaluation. Energy performance assessment such as BREEAM-NL in the Netherlands could apply a more...

For a long time, the development of maritime communication has been restricted by the low data rate, high-latency and high cost of the current communication systems. The upgrade of new generation mobile communication technologies is attracting more and more attention to conduct a shore-based broadband mobile communication network with high...

The development of safety validation methods is essential for the safe deployment and operation of Automated Driving Systems (ADSs). One of the goals of safety validation is to prospectively evaluate the risk of an ADS dealing with real-world traffic. ISO 26262 and ISO/DIS 21448, the leading standards in automotive safety, provide an approach...

Urban transshipment network is a transshipment solution for last-mile distribution in dense metropolitan regions. In this network, a set of micro hubs located in the urban areas are used for deconsolidating shipments and transferring them from high capacity vehicles to light freight vehicles that eventually deliver to customer locations. Due to...

Decoders minimizing the Euclidean distance between the received word and the candidate codewords are known to be optimal for channels suffering from Gaussian noise. However, when the stored or transmitted signals are also corrupted by an unknown offset, other decoders may perform better. In particular, applying the Euclidean distance on...

There is a pressing need for road authorities to take a proactive role in the deployment of automated vehicles on the existing road network. This requires a comprehensive understanding of the driving environment characteristics that affect the performance of automated vehicles. In this context, a field test with Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and...

This study investigates the performance of the TU Wien soil moisture retrieval (TUW-SMR) algorithm by adapting the strength of the vegetation correction. The semiempirical change detection method TUW-SMR exploits the multiangle backscatter observations from spaceborne fan-beam scatterometer systems in order to derive surface soil moisture...

By embedding conductive yarns in, or onto, knitted textile fabrics, simple but robust stretch sensor garments can be manufactured. In that way resistance based sensors can be fully integrated in textiles without compromising wearing comfort, stretchiness, washability, and ease of use in daily life. The many studies on such textile strain...

This thesis has researched the automation of performance evaluation of vehicle routing heuristics. The trade-off between solution quality, which is composed of multiple variables, and runtime make performance evaluation challenging. Therefore, it is often done by human experts. The research question of this thesis is: “How can we determine a...

The crumb rubber modified bitumen (CRMB) has been utilized in pavement industries to mainly reduce the environmental impacts of the wasted tires by turning unwanted scrap tires into new bituminous materials. However, the relatively high viscosity compared to the conventional asphalt is the major drawback of the CRMB. The higher mixing and...

The proliferation of big-data processing platforms has already led to radically different system designs, such as MapReduce and the newer Spark. Understanding the workloads of such systems enables tuning and could foster new designs. However, whereas MapReduce workloads have been characterized extensively, relatively little public knowledge...

The ongoing increase in urbanization and traffic congestion creates an urgent need to operate our transportation systems with maximum efficiency. Traffic signal control optimization is considered one of the main ways to solve traffic problems in urban networks. In publications in the field of intelligent transportation systems, a vast amount of...

A sit-snowboard is a weight supporting mechanism that allows people with lower extremity impairments to perform the sport of snowboarding. Comfort and control of the Twinrider (the only sit-snowboard on the market) are insufficient for advanced riders who reach higher speeds and ride more bumpy slopes. The goal of this study...

Body weight support (BWS) systems are widely used in gait rehabilitation. These systems allow patients to gradually increase training intensity and promote independent walking. Currently, there is no standardized method to assess the performance of BWS systems. This work proposes methods and metrics that can be used to assess and compare any...
