Janssen, D. (author)
The dissertation explores the use of emergency measures, particularly the BresDefender, to prevent or delay levee failure and mitigate the impacts of floods, focusing on the Netherlands' flood protection systems. Levees are vital for protecting low-lying areas, but there's always a risk of failure, leading to significant societal and material...

Yu, W. (author)
We are surrounded by all kinds of sounds at all times. What we hear varies with the physical environment and our position. Room impulse responses (RIRs) characterize the effect of the environment on a sound produced by a source. A first goal of this dissertation is to analyze RIRs and investigate how to extract environmental information from...

Pelka, S. (author)
The potential of households to adapt their energy use to the conditions of the energy system remains largely untapped due to shortcomings in consumer governance (i.e., the organization of household energy use). A lack of price signals and services leads to uncoordinated household energy use. Various proposals exist for updating consumer...

This study explores the integration of diverse flexible assets, including electric vehicles (EVs), stationary battery energy storage (BESS), heat-pumps and photovoltaics, into a localised smart grid to enhance aFRR ancillary service provision and lower overall grid costs. The performance of the grid was evaluated by simulating and analysing...

Climate change poses a significant threat to global lifestyles, necessitating urgent action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). The Netherlands, committed to the Paris Climate Agreement, faces the challenge of meeting ambitious emission reduction targets set by the European Union's Fit for 55 initiative. However, the integration of...

The lock of Hansweert, located in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands, serves as a crucial inland shipping node between the Western Scheldt estuary and the Rhine Delta. The outer harbour of the lock complex provides the connection to the Western Scheldt and accommodates waiting facilities for inland ships. The Western Scheldt is a vital...

Offshore mussel cultivation is gaining popularity, with the longline technique emerging as a popular method for cultivation. The longline technique entails multiple backbones from which mussel lines that loop around it are suspended and which are kept afloat by buoys. Overdulve Offshore Services designed the Cees Leenaars, a semi-submersible...

The excessive nitrogen in waterbodies, often caused by the discharge of ammonia-rich wastewaters, leads to eutrophication, disrupting aquatic ecosystems. Wastewater treatment plants play an important role in the removal and recovery of nitrogen from wastewater streams, thereby preventing pollution. Air stripping in combination with acid...

ncentive-based demand response (iDR) programs serve as important tools for distributed system operators (DSOs) to achieve a reduction in electricity demand during periods of grid overload. During these programs, participants can decide to curtail their consumption in exchange for financial incentives. Deciding the amount of curtailment for a...

Emergency response is a procedural safety barrier of paramount importance for the mitigation of fire scenarios and the prevention of escalation. However, in Natech scenarios, emergency response may be affected by the natural event impacting the site. Indeed, when contrasting Natech accidents, emergency responders have to face both the natural...

Introduction: Migraine is associated with enhanced visual sensitivity during and outside attacks. Processing of visual information is a highly non-linear process involving complex interactions across (sub)cortical networks. In this exploratory study, we combined electroencephalography with bi-sinusoidal light stimulation to assess non-linear...

Due to increasing environmental concerns and global energy demand, the development of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) is on the rise. FOWTs offer a promising solution to expand wind farm deployment into deeper waters with abundant wind resources. However, their harsh operating conditions and lower maturity level compared to fixed...

Background: Health systems worldwide struggled to obtain sufficient personal protective equipment (PPE) and ventilators during the COVID-19 pandemic due to global supply chain disruptions. Our study’s aim was to create a proof-of-concept model that would simulate the effects of supply strategies under various scenarios, to ultimately help...

Focusing on the effective configuration of emergency response systems in utility tunnels, this study proposes an innovative approach to optimize existing emergency response systems based on a consequence rapid prediction model and genetic algorithm. In the proposed approach, the interactions between different emergency response components are...

This research investigates the dynamic response of offshore wind turbine (OWT) systems subject to ice-structure-soil interaction (ISSI). To simulate the behavior of level ice sheets, a coupled approach involving the cohesive element method (CEM) and the finite element method (FEM) is applied. For soil-structure interaction (SSI), the Mohr...

The existing 3D printing methods exhibit certain fabrication-dependent limitations for printing curved constructs that are relevant for many tissues. Four-dimensional (4D) printing is an emerging technology that is expected to revolutionize the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM). 4D printing is based on 3D printing,...

As global issues such as climate change and diminishing resources become increasingly pressing, water recycling has moved into the focus. However, the successful implementation of Direct Potable Water Reuse (DPR) projects hinges on securing public acceptance, which remains challenging. This paper aims to flesh out possible reasons for the...

Governance lies at the heart of instigating, steering, and creating the conditions for mission-oriented transitions that potentially help resolve some of our grand societal challenges. In doing so, policymakers will need to navigate both epistemic and normative considerations to develop, implement, and evaluate missions responsibly. A number...
