Like other cities in Kathmandu Valley, Bhaktapur faces rapid urbanisation and population growth. Unsafe, new settlements are partly located at the floodplains and the government lags behind in implementing proper land-use policy to control unrestrained settlement. The rivers are not only constrained by uncontrolled settlements, but also by...

<b>Aim:</b> In this study, we aimed to investigate pedestrians’ trust, crossing behaviour, and misuse of an automated vehicle (AV) equipped with an external human-machine interface (eHMI). We hypothesized that participants’ trust would drop to a low level when the eHMI fails (i.e., the eHMI turns on, but the vehicle does not brake), followed by...

Heineken's goal with respect to safety is to reduce the number of accidents to zero. Such a drastic reduction can only be achieved by considering safety as early as in the design phase, when most impact can be made. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to enable the easy generation of different design concepts and evaluate them with regard...

When it comes down to building or maintaining civil infrastructure commissioned by a governmental body, a lot has changed during the last couple of years. The government made a turn from all determining body, to a cooperative partner and later even to an organization that’s outsourcing most of the construction and maintenance work to second and...

As an alternative energy carrier alongside electricity, hydrogen is considered one of the key factors in the impending required changes in the energy system transition. Due to the decrease in natural gas extraction in the Netherlands, the reuse of the natural gas network which eventually will become available for hydrogen transmission has...

The operating room and central sterile supply department (CSSD) are two<br/>resource-intensive healthcare departments. Reducing the environmental and financial impact of these departments is of great importance in the global debate on sustainability. Removing unnecessary items from instrument trays may provide a partial solution. However,...

Cooperation figured prominently in the Dutch construction industry’s agenda over the past years. In 2016, major clients, sector organizations and the relevant market parties officially committed to promote a culture based on good cooperation and healthy relationships by signing the "Market Vision" (De Marktvisie, 2016). This document illustrates...

Efficiently managing hedging portfolios on behalf of pension funds is key in achieving the target hedging strategy, which can significantly impact coverage ratios. A new optimization approach to fixed income portfolio management for pension funds is proposed that finds interest rate risk hedging strategies while incorporating additional...

Floods cause major problems around the world. Over 35 million people were affected by floods in 2018. They have a growing worldwide impact on life and property. Changes in climate conditions lead to unanticipated variations in glacial runoffs, snowmelt and precipitation, which all significantly changing river flows. An imbalance in river network...

The operation of automated vehicles in shared areas requires attention with respect to the interaction between AVs and vulnerable road users, including cyclists. Currently, the programmed interaction behavior of AVs is based on the knowledge of the interaction between conventional vehicles and cyclists. However, cyclists may react differently to...

This thesis elaborates on a theoretical, epistemological and design research framework for the possibility of an operative synthesis of, on the one hand, climate-related risk management (primarily, flood exposure from multiple source, i.e. sea level rise and coastal/tidal flooding, fluvial flooding and pluvial flooding) and, on the other, the...

Dikes constructed of a sand core, clay cover and natural vegetation as (landside) slope protection are common flood defence structures in the Netherlands. The design parameters, such as the crest height of dikes, are determined through risk assessment to reduce the remaining probability of a failure mechanism, such as overflow. Little is known...

Shanghai is a city located in a coastal region and to understand the flood risks it is exposed to, it is of most importance to first understand the processes that control the water levels for the different flood scenarios. Historically, the Huangpu River has reached its highest levels during landfalling typhoon events, which create a combined...

Nuclear energy is one of the most sustainable and clean energies in the world. It has been widely applied for electricity generation since 1954. However, the safety issues are always perceived as the big concerns for nuclear power development. Therefore, level 2 PSA has been developed in order to investigate the accident progression and...

Due to the inherent complexity and innovative character of construction projects, the role of risk management has become increasingly crucial. Dealing with the multifaceted risks associated with international construction projects is important in order not only to make sure that the project objectives are secured but also to make profit. It is...

During construction of breakwaters, adverse weather conditions can result in damage, in the form of reshaping and loss of material to the open work fronts of the structure. Based on literature research, analysis of work methods, analysis of damage to older breakwater projects and interviews, it was deduced that during construction, the open work...

The amount of international shipped cargo grows steadily, and seas are exploited for seabed mining and energy production more than ever. As a result, there is an increase in traffic density and decrease in free navigational space, potentially causing a higher incidence of dangerous navigation situations that may lead to ship collisions. This...

The construction sector has rather poorly developed organisational learning capabilities (Styhre, Josephson, &amp; Knauseder, 2004) and this results in lessons not being learned and applied in future projects. Lessons learned form the intellectual assets of an organisation and can help to reduce project risks (Carrillo, Ruikar, &amp; Fuller,...
