Richardson, Anthony (author)
A structural firm will not invest a large sum of money in early design fase on a wind tunnel aeroelastic model to determine the displacements, forces, and moments when the dimensions of a building have only been estimated because the outcomes are only valid for that specific model. It is well-known that the outcomes are hard to determine...

In this thesis, thermodynamic and structural properties of different deep eutectic solvent (DESs), and mixtures of DESs with gases or water, were computed using the state-of-the-art molecular simulations and computational methods. Discussions were presented on the influence of the intermolecular interactions and liquid structure of DESs on...

The amount of Heat pumps in the Netherlands is on the rise mainly because of the climate accords that hope to abolish the use of natural gas. This project aims to improve upon the current design of heat pumps to answer to this increased market. This is done in collaboration with ThuisBaas and more specifically Errico Garofalo who created the...

When simulating fluids the industry standard is Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS). However, the results for certain flows are inaccurate. The main source of error in popular RANS turbulence models is the Boussinesq approximation, assuming a linear relationship between the Reynolds stress anisotropy and the mean rate of strain. Experiments...

“From chaos, order can emerge”, a counterintuitive statement but also one laying the foundation for complex living systems. Individually acting agents can collectively produce organised structures at a larger scale. Possibly the most ubiquitous example of this phenomenon are bacterial colonies.<br/>Everywhere around us, a pandemonium of pushing...

The technology of focus in this paper, the applied-field magnetoplasmadynamic (MPD) thruster (AF-MPDT), was developed in the 1960s. However, little research has been conducted for this thruster. There is still the need for an accurate model describing the thruster's functioning, its thrust and the physical phenomenons inside.<br/>This project...

Welded details in orthotropic steel decks (OSD) are susceptible to fatigue cracks which are caused by local weld defects, geometric stress concentrations and residual tensile stresses. Residual tensile stresses are formed during the welding process and the distribution depends on many factors. Knowledge about the residual stress distribution is...

Purpose - This development project is focused on the combination of project scheduling and risk mitigation for large infrastructure projects. The aim of this project is to develop a model that can automatically restructure the network schedule to enable that delay is mitigated as much as possible while the effects on multiple project criteria...

This research tries to quantitatively identify the relation between team composition, organization structure, communication and team efficiency. The study takes a model-based approach to reach its objective. This research stresses the utility of agent-based modeling as a tool to first replicate the environment of an on-going project in India and...

In this work, we first analyse a theoretical technique based on entropic inequalities, which in principle can be used to compare classical and quantum algorithms running on noisy quantum devices. The technique has been used in the past for depolarizing noise, and has shown that for NISQ variational quantum algorithms (VQAs) to give an advantage...

In the current economy, there is an increasing focus on sustainability. Green transport solutions, like rail freight, are becoming more and more popular. We will look into the shunting operations at Kijfhoek shunting yard. This yard functions as the central hub for DB Cargo Nederland and connects the Port of Rotterdam with the hinterland. About...

This study investigates the effectiveness of vehicle dynamics and road environment data for predicting lateral accelerations and yaw rates. This prediction is used to preposition a simulator in anticipation of this motion. A prediction model was created using the road curvature at a specific look-ahead<br/>time and the current vehicle velocity....

The European Commission has mandated the requirement of advanced safety features in all vehicles sold in the EU from 2022 onwards. This will help drivers get gradually used to ADS, eventually transitioning to fully autonomous driving in the distant future. There are more vehicles on road now equipped with lane-keeping systems and other driver...

Cloud datacenters underpin our increasingly digital society, serving stakeholders across industry, government, and academia. These stakeholders have come to expect reliable operation and high quality of service, yet demand low cost, high scalability, and corporate (environmental) responsibility. Datacenter operators are confronted frequently...

Automated Vehicles (AVs) are one of the most promising and intensively studied research topics within engineering and beyond. The race to develop the first full “self-driving” vehicle has started a decade ago and will continue in the future. From the traditional automotive industry and other technological companies that mingled in the race,...

Moving block signalling promises a significant reduction of the infrastructure occupation compared to a fixed block system, such as NS’54/ATB. This is mainly caused by a strong reduction of the approach and running time. However, to assess the capacity gains track occupation data, such as blocking times are needed. ETCS L3 Moving Block is still...

For several decades, humanity has worked on cataloguing the population of near-Earth asteroids (NEA's). Knowledge of these small members of the Solar system not only helps in defending Earth from asteroid impacts; study of the population might also provide valuable scientific insights, and open economic possibilities through developments such as...

We analyze three different methods that can approximate the expected shortfall of a financial portfolio in a nested simulation. In this simulation process, the outer simulation generates risk scenarios, and the inner simulation approximates the value of the financial portfolio under each risk scenario. The first method is the most standard one,...

The river Waal is part of an economic important transport-corridor that connects the ports of Antwerp, Rotterdam and Amsterdam to Germany. Ongoing processes such as (1) climate change, (2) large scale river bed erosion and (3) up-scaling of vessels threaten the future navigability of the river. This will lead to massive economic damages as taken...

The ever-increasing size of offshore wind turbine substructures and the development of wind farms at sites further offshore, with greater water depths and with extremer weather conditions, raise logistical challenges that have never been faced before. Additionally, the offshore wind industry has to deal with governments cutting subsidies, small...
