In this research project we investigate a variety of different approaches. A key element in our endeavour is the localising of points of interest (POI’s). These POI’s are the approximate centre points of the cells, the corners or vertices of the cells, and also the cell walls in given directions. Using these POI’s we have built some intuitive...

One of the main targets of Waternet, the water-cycle company of Amsterdam, is to increase the sustainability of water treatment. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to improve the efficiency and to decrease the use of chemicals during pellet softening process. However, the model of Van Schagen et al. (2008 b,c) that is currently used to...

Fast depleting fossil fuels and growing awareness for environmental protection have led us to the urgency of a long-term energy planning where reduction of emissions, integration of renewable supply, and energy efficiency improvement represent the main targets of a ‘smarter’ employment of primary resources. Research is needed nowadays to drive a...

In this work, a possible solution to allow for scalable MATLAB deployment on big data clusters through Spark without using the official MATLAB toolbox is introduced. Other possible solutions that can be used for accelerating existing MATLAB code including calling modules written by Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and Python Pool with...

Blockchain technology provides new methods of value transferring and data coordination, which could potentially benefit the changing management needs for the Dutch electricity sector. However, little research is done on how such a blockchain should be implemented and how it could best cooperate with the electricity markets. The goal of this...

When dredging close to underwater sand slopes, steep slopes might form. In dense sand with low permeability this might lead to the so-called breaching process. The creation of a steep underwater slope marks the beginning of a breaching process.
Pore volumes of densely packed sand tend to increase during shear deformations. This effect is...

This report describes a research performed to investigate in which way it is feasible to dynamically alter the floor plan and desired capacity of airport baggage handling systems by making use of autonomous individual transport robots. By researching the state of the art of both conventional baggage handling systems and transport robot systems,...

At the United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Paris in 2015, ambitious goals for the worldwide CO2 emissions were set. To achieve these goals, a huge reduction in CO2 emissions must be realized. For the energy market, the current aim is to use renewable electricity instead of fossil fuels. However, there are multiple sectors where...

Image processing is found in many fields and in many domains. Advances in
digital image capturing technology allows for faster video rates, of higher quality, than has been seen before and that trend continues. With greater resolution and increased data flow there is also a need for faster and better hardware for image processing. As the...

The two performance areas “security” and “efficiency” in airport security operations cannot be analyzed apart from each other, since influencing one has a large impact on the other. In this research agent-based modelling is used to analyze dynamic relations and trade-offs between security and efficiency within airport security operations....

Circular economy principles are gaining attention in the Netherlands. Industries, consumers and the Dutch government feel increased responsibility to tackle barriers to sustainable development. The government is increasing its investments to stimulate consumers to live more sustainably and companies that develop circular products are established...

This thesis proposes several methods to solve the planning of parking and servicing of trains in a shunting yard. Management of temporary superfluous resources and maintenance is a recurring topic in many fields. Trains visit a service yard regularly to be cleaned, maintained, and to store them outside rush hours. These activities are currently...

The middle-income households in the Netherlands are currently disadvantaged in finding affordable housing, as they are pushed towards the private rental market in which affordable private rental housing is scarce. Together with participation trends, this gives opportunities for collective private commissioning (CPC) to add to the supply and make...

This thesis project develops an inclusive design in between Hyllie, Holma and Kroksbäck, in Malmö, Sweden. An investigation of social and spatial processes outlines the ever changing society and urban space of Malmö within the large context of globalisation, migration and urbanisation. The city has been transformed from an industrial city...

In this thesis, we focus on database query processing for so-called experience items, i.e., items commonly encountered in E-Commerce systems such as books, games or movies which are better described by their perceived subjective consumption experience, or Perceptual Features, than by factual meta-data normally used in SQL-style queries. To...

Surrogate modeling is a family of engineering techniques that attracts great interest today and can be applied in many challenging fields. A big advantage of it is that surrogate models (models based on these techniques) offer reliable results by being computationally cheaper than other candidate models. The savings in computational time is...

Flood risk is increasing due to climate change and the growth of the potential consequences of flooding. Analysing how flood-proof the spatial plan is, therefore becomes more important. Since most spatial planners have limited knowledge concerning flood risk, the Netherlands’ Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management commissioned...
