When a breakwater is under heavy wave attack, the concrete armour units will occasionally move, causing a collision between two concrete armour units. This process is called rocking, and induces stresses in the concrete, that may lead to breakage of the concrete armour units. This MSc Thesis provides a probabilistic method to predict breakage of...

Statistics Netherlands performs many different surveys to obtain estimates of unknown characteristics of the Dutch population. To keep the response burden on the Dutch households low, Statistics Netherlands applies a screening procedure to their selected samples. In our research, we investigate the effects of the screening procedure on the...

Banks are financial institutions that lend money from other parties and provide loans to individuals and organisation for a higher interest. Lending out money is associated with the risk that debtors are not able to fully or partially repay the loans. This is called credit risk. Banks have to make an estimate of the credit risk in their...

The volume and sophistication of data exfiltration attacks over networks have significantly increased in the last decade. This has resulted in the need for defense mechanisms, to effectively detect both known and unknown data exfiltration scenarios over the network. While methods such as DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) are commonly used to detect...

The Abelian sandpile model was first introduced by Bak, Tang and Wiesenfeld in 1987. Since then, a lot of researchers have studied this model and similar models, all related by the concept of self-organized criticality. In this thesis, we study a variant on the classical model where dissipative and anti-dissipative vertices are incorporated in...

In this thesis we study a class of interacting particle systems sharing a duality property. This class includes the Symmetric Inclusion Process (SIP(2k)), the Symmetric Exclusion Process (SEP(2j)) and the Independent Random Walkers (IRW). When these systems are in equilibrium (namely they are isolated from the exterior) they admit stationary...

With the growing wealth and economy of a country, there are an increasing amount of small and big businesses. Every company has its own marketing strategy that it uses in order to lure customers away from their competition and increase their sales. Choosing the perfect time to advertise or discount several products is of essence for a company to...

We beginnen dit verslag met de definities van niet-commutatieve (*-)kansruimten en toestanden erop. We zullen zien dat het aantal Dyckpaden van lengte 2n, het aantal niet-kruisende paarpartities van {1,2,...,2n}, en het 2n-de moment van de halvecirkelverdeling alle gelijk zijn aan het n-de Catalan-getal. Vervolgens bewijzen we Speichers centrale...

The SBR richtlijn A states threshold values for the vibration speeds causing a 1% probability of failure of masonry structures. These threshold values are very useful for structural designers, because during the construction of new structures or the demolition of existing structures, it is important to know if these structural vibrations can...

Sewer assets face a great challenge for being underground assets and for experiencing constant deterioration and aging. Reactive decisions are no longer technically nor economically viable, and hence asset managers are migrating to the implementation of proactive strategies. Despite this, managers are making decisions that are poorly justified,...

This thesis introduces a fragility-based framework in order to perform a custom assessment of the complex Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier. By applying a conditional approach to loading parameters, the statistical dependency between failure mechanisms and structure elements can be described separately for the strength and loading part of the...

The normal distribution is a very important distribution in probability theory and statisticsand has a lot of unique properties and characterizations. In this report we look at the proof of two of these characterizations and create counterparts of a normal distribution on abstract spaces, such as vector spaces and groups, which we shall call...

In this thesis we introduce a variation on the quantum random walk to discuss shifts in an arbitrary range. The concept of Hadamard coin was therefore generalised to a higher order. By a Fourier transform method and a tensor product decomposition of the evolution matrix the long-range quantum random walk was found to converge in distribution to...

In the divisible sandpile model, we consider a collection of i.i.d. Gaussian heights on a finite graph. It was shown by Levine et al. (2015) that the odometer function in this case equals a discrete, bi-Laplacian field. Subsequently, Cipriani et al. (2016) proved that the scaling limit of the odometer is a continuum bi-Laplacian field, this time...

[ not the actual abstract] In this thesis, the sandpile models distributions are analysed on the finite and infinite bethe lattice. To do so, the recursive property of the lattice is used.

The main objective of this study is the realisation of a computer tool. The function of the tool is to estimate the required dimensions and quantities of essential container, dry and liquid bulk terminal elements, in an early design phase. As well as to give an estimate of the construction costs of these marine terminals. Terminal element...

The possibility of multi-hazards, the occurrence of two or more (natural) hazards at once or shortly after another in the same location, can lead to an increased risk of structural damage and life loss. In the Netherlands, seismically-unprepared houses are especially vulnerable to newly expected earthquakes in the region of Groningen. These...

For decades, researchers try to model the subsoil as accurate as possible in order to make cost-efficient and safe geotechnical decisions. A troublesome aspect in modelling of the soil is to determine the heterogeneity within the soil, as this is usually associated with a great deal of uncertainty. Delft University of Technology used a recursive...

In this report we applied the marginal structural model and the naive Cox model on a simulated dataset, in order to find differences between these models. The marginal structural model is used to estimate causal effects in case of time-dependent confounding via inverse probability weights. The naive Cox model may produce a bias estimate of the...
