In the highly uncertain environment of conceptual aircraft design and technology assessment and selection, making good decisions is of utmost importance. Aiming to contribute to improving decision quality, the problem was researched from both a technical as well as a socio-psychological perspective. In the technical perspective, the uncertainty...

An appropriate understanding of a machine's competences may be critical for safe use. Sharing measures of real-time function reliability could help users to adjust their reliance on machine capabilities. We designed a vibrotactile interface that communicates spatiotemporal information about surrounding events and further encodes a representation...

This study has been performed in cooperation with TNO and set out to analyze the robustness of Dutch energy transition policies under deep uncertainty for the scope of the built environment sector. Open data is gathered which is used in a System Dynamics model to allow exploration under deep uncertainty. The Adaptive Robust Design methodology...

Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) are aiming to shed light on the cost-benefit of climate mitigations. However, current IAMs are depicted with a wide range of weaknesses. Next, to questionable assumptions of model functions, such as the damage function, IAMs are inadequate at addressing deeply uncertain parameters, such as the equilibrium...

Flood risk management is the process of analysing, assessing and (if required) reducing flood risks, in terms of economic costs and affected population or loss of life. The analysis is performed through a probabilistic approach in which the factors are represented by a probability distribution function to address uncertainties. However, relevant...

Humanitarians and global health actors come to the aid of many people every year, with the aim of preventing disease, increasing wellbeing, and providing (medical) aid to those suffering from disease. One of the contexts in which they operate is that of an epidemic. An epidemic is dynamic by nature and provides a complex and evolving environment...

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are increasingly under threat of coastal flooding, which challenges the safety of their societies and vulnerable economies. The emergency of this issue, exacerbated by climate change, has alarmed international organisations and national governments that have been demanding for robust risk assessments to...

Presently, the urban and natural systems in the world are trying to balance between coping with the extreme climate conditions and the expanding development. The urgency of accommodating these changes calls for flexible and adaptive response, which can sustain the risks and enhance the performance of the systems. This graduation thesis studies...

The current sourcing strategy of a company which relies on the backhauls of third party logistic providers for transportation currently does not take the availability of backhauls into account. Therefore, there is uncertainty in the number of trucks that are available for transporting freight from a supplier to a customer. This uncertainty can...

There are several prevailing issues regarding major altered states of extreme weather events. For instance, storm surges, sea-level rise, and droughts have all resulted in many regions left with critical systems and interdependencies exposed. The impact and risk of modern disasters have caused substantial adverse socio-economic impacts by...

The problem that discussed is less an issue to the contexts, but a general critical reflection on the disciplinary of architecture. The determinant role of architects in design process and free interpretation of the inhabitants pose the conflictions. Our (architects) creativities and imaginations are confined within the given role and limited...

In dynamic scheduling, some of the information about the scheduling problem is learnt during the execution of the schedule. Because of this, creating a low cost schedule that does not have to be changed is impossible in most cases. When changes are made during the execution, focussing solely on the performance of the schedule may result in very...

Clients with a mortgage loan may prepay a part of their loan before the contractual date. This is called prepayment. In the case of a prepayment, the bank who issued the loan earns less interest than ini- tially agreed. It is therefore essential to build accurate models for predicting prepayment behavior. In this thesis, machine learning models...

With the upsurge of disruptive trends such as digitalisation and automation, organisations have become more vulnerable to the consequences of these disruptive trends. The Harbourmaster is responsible for facilitating a safe and efficient port-call-process. Digitalisation and automation might lead to opportunities and threats in the port-call...

Shipyards these days see an increase in customers that specify combined speed and seakeeping ability design requirements. This requires the shipyard to make a prediction of the additional installed power required to maintain a certain speed when waves are encountered. The additional required installed power is directly related to the average...

For this thesis, a probabilistic techno-economic model is developed for deep, direct use geothermal projects in the Netherlands. As a case study, data from the future DAP doublet (TU Delft) is inserted wherein multiple scenarios are researched that model variations in well capacity, energy prices, project design, government policies, brine gas...

Evolution of coastline position under the influence of natural and anthropogenic processes is directly linked to the development of seaside societies. In the context of coastal zone management, process-based morphodynamic models are often used topredict coastline evolution and support the decision-making process...

Uncertainty has an obstructing role in the decision-making of electrification investments for industrial actors. Future research by analysts is required to explore the potential of electrified industrial systems in their uncertain environments. In order to enable research to uncertainty in electrified industrial systems, the identification and...

To cut down immense greenhouse gases emission and energy consumption in the rapidly urbanizing world, a holistic understanding and rethinking of our dynamic urban energy system are inevitable. Performing bottom-up building energy modelings at urban scale based on Geographic Information System (GIS) and semantic 3D city models could be a...
