Risk management, a process aiming to decrease or eliminate the likelihood and impact of unwanted effects on a project during its lifecycle, has become highly significant due to complexity, uncertainties and high competition. Numerous tools and techniques have been developed for successfully implementing risk management. However, risk is...

Climate change is affecting the urban environment in the Netherlands, which increases the risks of droughts, floods, waterlogging, and heatwaves. Consequently, the cities we build many years ago are not resilient to climate change in the long run. In response the national government created the Delta Plan on Spatial Adaptation (DPRA) to adapt to...

Interacting with cyclists is a difficult challenge for Automated Vehicles (AVs). It is important that the introduction of AVs does not lead to a decrease in cyclist safety. This study presents a new methodology that is developed to assess road safety between AVs and cyclists. Surrogate Measures of Safety are identified specifically for the...

We study the impact of wrong-way risk (WWR) on the credit valuation adjustment (CVA) of a portfolio of interest rate swaps (IRSs), using an intensity-based reduced form model. To model WWR in IRSs we create a dependence between he underlying market risk factor of the IRS and the survival probability of the <br/>counterparty. The focus lies on...

The goal of this research is to provide insights into the relationships between complexities and risks to be used in risk analysis and management of complex construction projects. In preparation of the exploratory survey, a literature study is performed. After that, the CBRAT (Complexity Based Risk Assessment Technique) is designed to capture...

High-water levels in the Rhine-Meuse delta are going to rise in the upcoming decades due to climate change with the accompanied sea level rise and the increase of the frequency of extreme Rhine discharges. The flood prone areas not protected by flood defenses at the Island of Dordrecht are directly influenced by the increase of these high-water...

Although the cities in the Pearl River Delta (PRD) in China are amongst the world’s cities most exposed to flooding due to climate change, surprisingly little is done to address this problem. This article explores the barriers to the emergence of policies adapting to the growing flood risk in two PRD cities, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, underlining...

Emergencies such as fires and terrorist attacks pose risks of injuries and fatalities, which can be exacerbated by delayed, ill-informed, or unmanaged responses. Effective emergency communication strategies could be used to better inform people and reduce these risks. This research analyzes videos of real-world emergencies to: (a) identify...

Punchiná reservoir is part of the San Carlos Hydroelectric Power Plant, situated in the Guatapé watershed. The Guatapé river is an affluent of the Samaná Norte river, which in turn is an affluent of the Magdalena river. San Carlos Hydroelectric Project uses the waters from the rivers San Carlos and Guatapé and discharges the turbined flow...

Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) poses a significant threat to the population and urban sustainability worldwide. The surge mitigation is complicated and associates many factors, including the pandemic status, policy, socioeconomics and resident behaviours. Modelling and analytics with spatial-temporal big urban data are required to assist...

Urban gas pipelines usually have high structural vulnerability due to long service time. The locations across urban areas with high population density make the gas pipelines easily exposed to external activities. Recently, urban pipelines may also have been the target of terrorist attacks. Nevertheless, the intentional damage, i.e. terrorist...

Recent natural gas development by means of hydraulic fracturing requires a detailed risk analysis to eliminate or mitigate damage to the natural environment. Such geo-energy related subsurface activities involve complex engineering processes and uncertain data, making comprehensive, quantitative risk assessments a challenge to develop. This...

Bird strike prevention in civil aviation has traditionally focused on the airport perimeter. Since the risk of especially damaging bird strikes outside the airport boundaries is rising, this paper investigates the safety potential of operational bird strike prevention involving pilots and controllers. In such a concept, controllers would be...

This study investigates short-term fluctuations in virus concentrations in source water and their removal by full-scale drinking water treatment processes under different source water conditions. Transient peaks in raw water faecal contamination were identified using in situ online β-D-glucuronidase activity monitoring at two urban drinking...

Energy retrofit of residential buildings is an approach to reduce worldwide energy consumption. Residential energy retrofitting in China mostly focuses on multi-owner residential buildings with composite ownership that dozens of private homeowners own their apartment and jointly own the common parts of a building. The implementation of...

Risk management is a vital process in the construction of large projects. It is necessary to protect the success of the project, the budget, the project timeline and the reputation of an organisation. Alongside the tools and techniques which exist to support risk management, it is also a process which depends on people’s opinions, decisions and...

Economic risk due to a potential flood event is determined by combining the estimated damages and the probability of failure for many scenarios. In recent research of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) it was stated that the sea level will rise more than expected due to climate change . This could influence the flood risk in...

Water management infrastructures such as floodgates are critical and increasingly operated by Industrial Control Systems (ICS). These systems are becoming more connected to the internet, either directly or through the corporate networks. This makes them vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Abnormal behaviour in floodgates operated by ICS could be caused...

This thesis work proposes an approach to integrate design and reliability assessment, based on a single modeling environment by deployment of Systems Modeling Language (SysML). The main purpose of the developed approach is to help enhance reliability assessment in student-based CubeSat projects. Considering the limited project resources, that...

As climate change takes hold, extreme weather events increasingly pressure the performance of the railway infrastructure. A first insight has been obtained into the impacts of climate change for the train system and the railway network, but there are almost no studies on the impact of our changing climate on railway stations. This study...
