The agent - based modeling of freight transport that captures both the variety of actors and their complex decisions has not made as much progress as in passenger transport. Efforts towards agent-based models must include firms. However, the synthesis of a firm population in the context of urban freight transport has gotten little attention in...

With the rapid development of Quantum Computers (QC) and QC Simulators, there will be an increased demand for functioning Quantum Algorithms in the near future. Some of the most ubiquitously useful algorithms are solvers for linear systems of equations. Since the conception of the Quantum Linear Solver Algorithm (QLSA) by Harrow, Hassidim and...

The main objective of this study is to quantify interference effects between production and injection wells for geothermal projects that operate within the same reservoir. The secondary objective is to study the time it takes for the reservoir unit to thermally recharge after production has stopped. Two reservoir simulators are benchmarked to...

In this thesis we study the use of Piecewise Deterministic Markov Processes (PDMPs), such as the Zig-Zag process and the Bouncy Particle Sampler, in rare event probability estimation. We introduce both processes and illustrate how the methods work. To estimate the rare event probabilities we use the splitting method. We also analyze this method...

To obtain unambiguous ground truth of water-ice residing in permanently shaded regions of the Moon and to characterise the local regolith, ESA considers a mission involving an instrumented penetrator implanted there by high-speed impact. Released into lunar orbit, the European Lunar Penetrator (ELUPE) Descent Module will autonomously traverse a...

Processes occurring in the near-shore region operates on a small spatial and temporal scale. Simulations of these processes have long posed challenges for computational science, and to have accurate representations require a higher resolution. This results in computationally expensive models. This project aimed to investigate the possibility of...

Currently a new small and automated dairy factory for the onsite production of cheese at farms is under devel-opment. This new factory aims at the production of cheese without any human interaction, based on the (raw) milk from cows who are milked with a milking robot. At the moment only a small test factory exists, in which human interaction is...

When data in higher dimensions with a certain constraint on it, say a set of locations on a sphere, is encountered, some classical statistical analysis methods fail, as the data no longer assumes its values in a linear space. In this thesis we consider such datasets and aim to do likelihood-based inference on the center of the data. To model the...

Granular bed protections are a common measure to mitigate scour of the sand bed around hydraulic structures. In view of marching towards cost-effective solutions to tackle erosion-related problems, it is important to accurately predict the loads exerted on the bed and come up with the needed rock grading. To that end, a 3-D eddy resolving...

Lane change manoeuvres are known to vary widely in lane change duration. This is thought to be an effect of the surrounding vehicles and personal preference of drivers. However, little is known about the effect on steering behaviour during a lane change manoeuvre. Moreover, the relation of the effect of traffic to inter- and intra-driver...

Port call efficiency (PCE) is an important factor in the port choice of shipping lines. This research strives to contribute to the current work on PCE optimization. This is done by applying relative new techniques on port call related data. A combination of process mining (PM) and discrete event simulation (DEVS) is explored, with the Port of...

Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) algorithms provide accurate localization for autonomous vehicles and provide essential information for the path planning module. However, SLAM algorithms as- sume a static environment in order to estimate a location. This assumption influences the pose estimation in dynamic urban environments. The...

Congestion in the landside air cargo supply chain occurs for different concurring reasons. Lack of coordination between freight forwarders, as example, might create truck congestion on the ground handler side. Horizontal collaboration between forwarders can be introduced and modeled via mathematical programming to mitigate congestion. Resulting...

Climate change is driving the evolving energy mix in the world. The amount of renewables are rising to avoid the detrimental effects of fossil fuels to the environment. Solar and wind power are the major players in the rising renewable energy mix. Most of these power generation sources are interfaced through power electronic converters. In the...

Persuasive games have great properties for facilitating lasting attitude change for complex societal issues, making them a valuable tool for achieving attitude change towards cooperation and information sharing that is often necessary for effective multi-actor decision-making. It is assumed that persuasive game design principles are key drivers...

The Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCoE) produced by PV systems is determined by yield (kWh) and cost of the system. Reducing the LCoE of the solar power can be achieved either by increasing the yield or by reducing the cost. The yield of bi-facial PV systems is promoted by high efficiency and a high bi-faciality factor.<br/><br/>Yield due to...

Philippine low-income housing is uncomfortable since it is not built to deal with the hot and humid climate in a passive way. Since local vernacular architecture is known to have a good climatic responsive performance, the aim of this research is to learn how Philippine vernacular design strategies can improve thermal comfort for low-lying, sub...

Rapidly expanding urban developments are having an inverse relationship on the surrounding urban environment. Facades and the materials that they are composed of can have a large impact on the warming of urban microclimates. By reducing or cooling the external surfaces of a facade a building maybe able to offset its contribution to the urban...

Airline schedules are constantly being updated to deal with disruptions originating from crew absence, upstream delays, mechanical failures and other sources. A robust schedule is capable of dealing with- or absorbing negative effects of such unexpected events. Schedule robustness, accounted for proactively in the scheduling g phase, is...
