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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

DESIGN THINKING:
Design thinking is an ambiguous term regarding its meaning. It can be seen as an approach that opts to define and solve problems by incorporating designers’ approaches, methods and tools to problem solving. As it is believed that all managers already do think like a designer, it is questioned how design thinking is...

Ericis b.v is a dynamic real estate organisation which provides numerous services in real estate. This project concerns project management department. The operational team of this department is relatively small and exists out of six people. Although this department is quite small, their demand on the real-estate market is not. The consistent...

An efficient production is essential for an economic continuation of most gold mining companies, due to a moderate gold price and a competitive market. Recently, the Ahafo South Mining operations owned by the Newmont Mining Corporation and located on a Proterozoic gold belt in the south west of Ghana, indicated that the cost of production must...

Currently the performance of a traditional forward supply chain is broadly studied in literature. The less known reverse supply chain is an upcoming research theme, with more companies adapting this concept. In the beverages industry this reverse logistics are common and based on returnable packaging, so called empties. Beer brewers are under a...

Coherent responses to wicked problems such as climate change require a new way of doing science and tools to give insight into the transformation of large-scale socio-technical systems. Simulation models support transformative processes by offering a simplified version of reality and a boundary object that unites stakeholders around a simplified...

In this work, the doctoral thesis of G.S.J. Sturm on microwave reactors was continued. Microwave reactors are developed, because they have potential to increase safety and economically reduce waste. This work focused on microwaves and chemical processes, instead of just heating water, by designing a travelling microwave reactor for non-oxidative...

Compressive Sensing (CS) provides a new paradigm in data acquisition and signal processing based on the assumption of sparsity and the incoherence of the received signal. Based on that concept, many radar front-end architectures have been studied with the implementation of CS. In these architectures, less data are collected but the radar scene...

Transitioning from a heavily fuel reliant economy to a sustainable future is one of the major challenges of our time. The high energy density and good storage properties of fossil fuels have made them the most important energy source for the last centuries. Moving away from fossil fuels towards greener, biomass-based energy and energy carriers...

This thesis explores the nature of coastal dune behavior and the role of sediment supply in the aeolian system. The first part of the thesis conducts a data analysis based on the Dutch JARKUS dataset, which provides yearly measured profiles along the Dutch coast. A series of parameters derived from the profile measurements have been used to...

Currently, non-rigid image registration algorithms are too time intensive to use in time-critical applications. To solve this problem, stochastic gradient descent (SGD) has been implemented in image registration. But, SGD depends on manual step size selection which is dicult and time consuming. To avoid such manual selection, SGD has been...

Pavlovian eyeblink conditioning is a powerful experiment used in the field of neuroscience to measure multiple aspects of how we learn in our daily life. To track the movement of the eyelid during an experiment, researchers traditionally made use of potentiometers or electromyography (EMG). More recently, the use of computer vision and image...

Context - After the recession of 2008, the real estate market is picking up again. Amongst others due to the urbanisation and the increasing world population the real estate demand is growing. However, the current scarcity of workforce in the construction industry might become a huge issue in the future. In order to deal with the future real...
