In recent decades, the electrical power system has evolved into a new phase, in which the renewable energy resources are massively integrated into the grid. This change is mainly inspired by global policies that intend to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and decrease the society’s reliance on fossil fuels by replacing them with sustainable energy...

The design of a container terminal is a process that goes through a number of phases. One of the first is the concept design phase, which is needed to make a first assessment of the project's technical and financial feasibility. This phase is exploratory of nature, because of the early stage in the design cycle and consists of several tasks that...

Upper limb amputees, using a body-powered prosthesis, generate energy with their shoulders which leads to opening or closing of the prosthesis. The preference for one of these types, voluntary opening (VO) or voluntary closing (VC), differs for individuals and for task specifics. Research is, therefore, done regarding terminal devices which...

The world population is growing and therewith facing a lot of problems, such as a growing energy demand and climate change. These problems force society to make a transition, from a system driven by fossil raw materials to a sustainability-based system. Hydrogen can play a part in shifting from fossil fuels to more sustainable energy flows, as a...

Security risk management is essential for ensuring effective airport operations. This article introduces AbSRiM, a novel agent-based modeling and simulation approach to perform security risk management for airport operations that uses formal sociotechnical models that include temporal and spatial aspects. The approach contains four main steps:...

Surname is known for its rich colonial history and its export of coffee, cocoa and sugar, produced on plantations. Workforce was pulled away from agriculture industry when bauxite became an important export product which mines got exhausted recently. Nowadays, mining of minerals such as oil and gold is important for the economy of Suriname. The...

With an increase in amount of container terminals competition between terminals has risen. Therefore it has become more and more important for terminal operators to conduct their work as efficient as possible. Efficient terminal operations are hindered by stochasticity, which is defined as random variation in parameter values. Due to missing...

As ports are important infrastructure for a countries economy, ports fulfill a vital role in society. In the contemporary global environment, one is expected to adjust its business routines to meet sustainability targets. Because of their significant importance in a port governance framework, terminal operators prove an interesting unit of...

This study analyzes the financial impact of design guidelines used in the development of agribulk terminals and sets out to quantify the effect of uncertain throughput projections on a terminal’s business case. This was done through the use of a purposely-built computer model that translates traffic projections into a terminal design in an...

Diesel-powered Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) are currently deployed for container transport at terminal’s water side. Looking at the trends in formal legislation and market developments towards sustainability, these diesel AGVs are most likely to become outdated. Although battery-electric AGVs are an emerging, zero-emission alternative, there...

Different modes of transportation have always greatly impacted the way we as a society view the world. Until the invention of the steam engine, people were still closely bound to their cities and villages as traveling from one city to another could take up a full day. This made it hard to stay in contact with people in different places, but for...

The largest part of the European ports are engaged into addressing proactively environmental and societal issues in order to achieve an always more sustainable development. However, there are several sources that indicate that gaps and barriers exist which impede the sustainable development of many Mediterranean ports. In order to deal with the...

Both security and efficiency are important performance areas of air transport systems. Several methods have been proposed to assess security risks and estimate efficiency independently, but only few of these methods identify relationships between security risks and efficiency performance indicators. To analyze security, efficiency, and the...

One of the most popular and frequently used models for describing homogeneous liquid-solid fluidised suspensions is the model developed by Richardson &amp; Zaki in 1954. The superficial fluid velocity and terminal settling velocity together with an index makes it possible to determine the fluid porosity in a straightforward way. The reference...

The human gut contains an expanse of largely unstudied bacteriophages. Among the most common are crAss-like phages, which were predicted to infect Bacteriodetes hosts. CrAssphage, the first crAss-like phage to be discovered, contains a protein encoding a Bacteroides-associated carbohydrate-binding often N-terminal (BACON) domain tandem repeat...

This paper investigates the problem of inter-terminal movements of containers and vehicles within a port area in order to achieve an integrated and effective transport within the port and towards the hinterland. Containers from different port terminals are first moved to a rail yard and then delivered to the hinterland by rail. To provide...
