To align with the objective of the European Green Deal [46] policy of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the construction sector must transition to a circular built environment. Most of the waste in the Netherlands is related to construction and demolition waste, with the industry accounting for approximately 35% of CO<sub>2<...

Heavy traffic in the city of Amsterdam has damaged the 17th-century bridges and quays over the past years. To prevent further damage and expand the lifespan of both existing and renovated structures, a maximum axle load of 7,5 tonnes is mandated in the city centre. Currently, the municipal waste collection department has a permanent exemption...

Cryogenic and semi-cryogenic propellants are the most commonly used liquid propellants for applications in medium-lift launch vehicles. Despite their high performance, the storage requirements for these propellants often lead to complex, heavy, and voluminous structures. The only storable propellant used in medium-lift launch vehicles, UDMH/NTO,...

Purpose: Corporate real estate management (CREM) is complex due to an increasing number of real estate (RE) added values and the tensions between them. RE managers are faced with trade-offs: to choose a higher performance for one added value at the cost of another. CREM research mainly deals with trade-offs in a hypothetical sense, without...

The current trend towards the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and graphics processing unit (GPU) technologies has resulted in the development of embedded hybrid GPU-AI accelerators, which offer high computational power and energy efficiency. One of the key challenges in designing such accelerators is ensuring their timing correctness...

Climate change is a topic being addressed by many countries worldwide. One of the most recent treaties is the Paris Agreement signed in 2015 by 196 parties, where they agree on a common goal: restrict global warming to be climate-neutral by 2050. Peru by being one of the signing parties that played a relevant role before and during the Paris...

Water, an essential resource for diverse purposes like environmental protection, urban water supply, energy generation, and agriculture, faces intensifying demand amid depleting supplies. Multi-Objective Optimization (MOO)-models are vital for addressing complex water system challenges with limited resources. However, varying approaches to...

Due to the growing demand for offshore wind energy and the increasing wind turbine sizes, a shortage of capable installation vessels is anticipated by 2024. Consequently, the utilisation of heavy-lift vessels, previously not employed for bottom-founded or floating offshore wind turbine installations, may become imperative to realise the offshore...

Train stations are developed by rail companies, for the benefit of travellers. Choices and trade-offs must be made. However, there are no guidelines on how to approach these trade-offs. This study aims to find out to what extent consulting train travellers from the station developer’s perspective contributes to making trade-offs in the...

Ammonia shows great potential for decarbonizing the road transportation sector because it does not produce CO<sub>2</sub> emissions during combustion. On the other hand, ammonia-fueled engines emit gases such as (unburned) ammonia (NH<sub>3</sub>), and nitrogen oxides (NO)<sub>x</sub>, which contribute to air pollution and adversely impact human...

This research study has investigated the effects of sills as a nature-based countermeasure to reduce saltwater intrusion within Rijnmond Drechtsteden. The effects of this measure have been assessed regarding its impact on port logistics and freshwater supply in the region. The heavily dredged New Waterway provides the vital open connection to...

Delayed maintenance is a major issue in Europe, including the Netherlands. The city of Amsterdam recently started a large-scale maintenance project to renew (renovate or replace) many bridges: an issue that other cities will have to face soon. Decision-making for bridge programming (deciding which bridges should be renewed simultaneously using...

Economic model predictive control (EMPC) has received increasing attention in the wind energy community due to its ability to trade-off economic objectives with ease. However, for wind turbine applications, inherent nonlinearities, such as from aerodynamics, pose difficulties in attaining a convex optimal control problem (OCP), by which real...

For most of the 20th century, the design and operation of dams prioritized traditional economic considerations such as hydropower generation, flood risk reduction and provision of water for irrigation and domestic use. This resulted in altered river flow regimes, degraded riverine ecosystems and ecosystem services, and biodiversity loss....

Observing that the majority of SSTO programs failed due to the propulsion system being far ahead of its time. Furthermore, acknowledging the that the private launch markets is increasingly dominated by partly reusable TSTOs. This thesis aims to evaluate whether next generation rocket engines make an SSTO viable within a foreseeable economical...

Water storage and diversion capacity of reservoirs in the Nile Basin are benefited for various purposes including agricultural irrigation and hydro-energy production. Filling and operation of the recently constructed Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) have been subject to heated debate for its implications on downstream countries Sudan and...

Event-based cameras do not capture frames like an RGB camera, only data from pixels that detect a change in light intensity, making it a better alternative for processing videos. The sparse data acquired from event-based video only captures movement in an asynchronous way. In this paper an evaluation is made on the efficiency and accuracy of...

Nature-based initiatives have emerged as potential solutions to problems caused by saltwater intrusion in deltas found globally, but their successful implementation is enabled partly by a multi-stakeholder approach. The latter involves managing several parallel stakeholder objectives, which usually requires quantitative knowledge to understand...

The growing import of illegal products in the Netherlands via container ships causes increased violence, addiction, and tax evasion in the Dutch society. With the current criminal detection practices the Dutch National Police and Dutch Customs do not manage to intercept the majority of the illegal shipments. The resources used by the Dutch...
