Quay walls are often designed with Finite Element models (FE models) to take into account the complex soil-structure interaction and highly non-linear soil behaviour. These are complex models that rely on many input parameters that have uncertainties. Nowadays, new quay walls are often equipped with sensors that collect information about the...

In SAR interferometry, the data acquired by satellite are large. The points in the dataset are usually expressed in spatial-temporal dimension in which many epochs may be included. Extra information including contextual values and data from other sources sometimes are important to be taken into account when analyzing the deformation based on the...

Throughout the years the requirements of sheet pile walls have changed. Therefore reassessment of these structure's reliability is of importance. In this thesis, Bayesian updating is used for the reliability updating task. Updating processes require measurements of the structure under known conditions. Although for practical and economical...

The dynamic and fast-changing environment brings challenges for generating long-term visions of the future; scenarios. Outdated scenarios will result in future pathways that are no longer achievable and therefore reduces their relevance and usefulness for making decisions. As some uncertainty is resolved over time, while other uncertainties...

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...

Given the increasing popularity of Machine Learning, and the ever increasing need to solve larger and more complex learning challenges, it is unsurprising that numerous distributed learning strategies have been brought forward in recent years, along with many large scale Machine Learning frameworks. It is however unclear how well these...

The thesis presents a numerical study on dredging induced undrained instability and subsequent static liquefaction of submarine landslides. For the study, a pre-existing hydro-dynamic uncoupled submarine slope numerical model, developed by Molenkamp (1999), has been modified to incorporate a fully hydro-dynamic coupled interaction between...

The design and reassessment of quays is subject to uncertainties. Examples of these uncertainties are the soil parameters, soil behavior and the current state of the structural parts. Especially in the reassessment of existing structures it is hard to prove a quay to be safe. In this thesis Bayesian updating is used as a method to reduce this...

Correctly predicting the structural behavior of the Pioneering Spirit is vital for ensuring the structural integrity of the ship and the cargo. A detailed finite element model is used to predict the structural behavior of the Pioneering Spirit. The finite element method is based on fundamental principles in solid mechanics. However, when using...

Over the years, the installed capacity of offshore wind turbines is increasing rapidly. However, the Levelized Costs Of Energy (LCOE) is still higher than the LCOE of traditional energy production methods like nuclear power or energy from coals or gas. This research focuses on a further decrease of the LCOE, by minimizing the mass of a monopile...

Today’s industry relies on the take-make-dispose approach of the linear economic model. Our linear consumption and production patterns are depleting our planet’s resources, polluting our environment and changing our climate. As a proposed solution to this problem, a circular economic model is designed to reduce the flow of non-renewable energy...

Mobile jack-up units remain favourable in the offshore industry due to its capability to self-install and ability to work in moderate water depth. Prior to its mobilization to the site location, it is required to have a site-specific assessment (SSA). The SSA will identify any potential problems related to foundation conditions during...

Structural vibrations are a known cause of damage to offshore structures and equipment. A Cutter Suction Dredger (CSD) is a dredge vessel known to vibrate heavily during operation. Primary cause of these vibrations is the cutting process, performed to cut and excavate soil from the seabed. A component prone to damage is the cutter ladder, a...

Decision Support Systems (DSSs) that are used nowadays by water managers often predict states that do not correspond with the observed states. This is caused by changing parameters in the real systems, while the parameters used in the current DSSs are kept at a fixed level or follow a temporal pattern that does not always represents reality....

There are many applications that use maps, and more detailed the maps are, more applications can benefit from the map. Many maps are still manually created and also the underlying attributes are informed in a manual process. This thesis presents a method to automatically derive and update attribute road data by mining and analyzing movement...

Modern and future aerospace structures make increasing use of fiber reinforced composite materials to optimize structural performance. Yet, characterizing the composite material properties is very expensive and time consuming. Parameters like non-linear shear and their interactions with stresses perpendicular to the fiber direction are hardly...

This thesis describes the implementation of available bandwidth link-state update policies for Quality of Service routing. Periodic, threshold-based and class-based policies are described and implemented in a QoS router testbed, using Quagga and its OSPF-API for low-level communications. The implementation is thoroughly tested using unit tests...
