The pressure to reduce emissions in the sector of inland shipping is increasing. Especially considering emissions of environmental pollutants, the increasing pressure gives rise to the question how to get insight into emissions distributions along an inland waterway network. In this research, a bottom-up method is developed that is able to map...

Although e-groceries is nothing new, the scale at which it is currently growing in the Netherlands has not been seen before. Over the past four years, the market share of online grocery shopping showed an average growth of over 20% per year. While it was already challenging to keep up with this high demand, it became increasingly more difficult...

Modelling and simulation is at the heart of Digital Twin technology, which is revolutionising many industries. Organisations have access to legacy models that are too complex to maintain, preventing them from operationalising complex systems like Digital Twin. By creating an automated tool for model decomposition, it is possible to breathe life...

Our contemporary society consists of increasingly complex systems-of-systems in which technical and social subsystems influence each other. Multi-models reflect this complexity and are useful to analyse these complex socio-technical systems. They consist of connected simulation models which may each have their focus on a subsystem or modelling...

The quantum internet will allow for communication via qubits, enabling for improved clock synchronization, blind quantum computing and quantum key distribution. Key components of such a quantum network are quantum repeaters, which help to overcome the exponential loss of photons in optical fibers. In this thesis we focus on one type of quantum...

High temperature aquifer thermal energy storage (HT-ATES) can potentially solve the mismatch between heat supply and demand. It can provide a large scale seasonal heat storage solution. Thereby it enables an increase in full load hours of the base heat source, which can benefit project performance on both costs and emissions. However, the...

To intrigue more people to cycle, it is essential to assess the current design of the cycling infrastructure to guarantee the efficiency and safety for the users. A credible simulation of cyclists is helpful to evaluate different designs of infrastructure and point out the problem. A valid simulation model requires proper verification and...

Many philosophical accounts of scientific models fail to distinguish between a simulation model and other forms of models. This failure is unfortunate because there are important differences pertaining to their methodology and epistemology that favor their philosophical understanding. The core claim presented here is that simulation models...

Port terminals on floating modular platforms are a conceivable solution for the problem of limited space and water depths restrictions of ports in estuary regions. A design of a dedicated Transport&Logistic hub has been developed in the scope of the Horizon 2020 project Space@Sea. This paper addresses dedicated options of waterborne...

Upper extremity injuries are common in baseball. One of these is the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injury. In the field of sports injuries, most research focuses on average kinematics and kinetics between subjects, whereas focusing on within-subject variability appears to be more relevant for determining injury risk. We constructed a simple...

When breast cancer is detected early, and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 100%. (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2019) There is a survival advantage in detecting breast cancer early and treating it quickly (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 2019; Cancer Australia, 2004, updated 2009; McDonald,...

Simulation models are increasingly used to substantiate long-term planning policy decisions. The communication of model results from modellers to policy-makers has not received much attention by scholars. While, without correct interpretation and correct use of model results the quality of the model itself is irrelevant for the impact of the...

This study analyzes the impact of the facade design on the energy performance, daylight and thermal comfort of residential high-rise buildings in temperate climates, with the help of energy simulations. The advantages of different facade design strategies are assessed based on the Cooltoren building in Rotterdam by V8 Architects. The aim is to...

The canals of Amsterdam represent a draw for tourists and add to the value of real estate along the canals. More than 40 percent of Amsterdam tourists take a trip through the canals, accounting for more than 3 million canal travelers annually. Therefore, the tour boat sector is crucial for tourism in Amsterdam.<br/>Many of the quay walls on...

Offshore asset construction is a complex and costly process that is subject to various uncertainties within the entire supply chain. Hence, both the construction management optimization and the reduction of deployment expenditures should be supported by automated decision support models which include proper representations of predominant...

The importance of maritime transport keeps increasing with the trade globalization. With the growing demand for waterborne transport, vessel traffic flows are also expected to increase. This paper reviews maritime traffic models from the vessel behavior modeling perspective. The maritime traffic models include the models for vessel traffic both...

Within this research parcel behaviour over a bidirectional sorter is optimized to increase efficiency. Currently, influence of parcel properties on the sortation behaviour is unknown and equipment settings are set by experience rather than objective information. To gain insight in the behaviour first, a simulation model has been developed and...

The volatile production of renewable energy sources is often considered a key issue in future sustainable energy systems. Drawing on microgrid research, we argue that the potential synergy between microgrid energy management and provision of flexibility services to the wider grid could be further explored. In addition, the trade-off between cost...
