The effects of e-commerce on consumer mobility are studied by means of a structural equation modelling analysis. Shopping value and orientation preferences directly affect shopping frequency in the online and offline environment, besides an indirect effect from shopping value via orientation preference to shopping frequency is found significant....

Hydrogen technology offers a promising opportunity to mitigate problems that arise due to the energy transition. It can enable storage and balancing for surplus in electricity production from intermittent resources as solar energy and wind power. Electrolysis converts green electricity into hydrogen. Hydrogen is suggested to be introduced into...

A numerically tractable Stochastic Model Predictive Control (SMPC) strategy using Conditional Value at Risk (CVaR) optimization for discrete-time linear time-invariant systems, with state and input constraints, subject to additive uncertainty, is presented. SMPC strategies make use of the probabilistic description of uncertainty to define chance...

One of the pillars of Dutch municipal decision-making is to stimulate citizen participation in agenda- setting and decision-making (VNG, 2018). Involving citizens in the allocation of the public budget for addressing specific challenges is a novel approach to participatory decision-making. This thesis examines the applicability of the...

Twenty years ago, American-style shareholder capitalism, with its focus on maximising shareholders’ value (MSV), was widening its lead (in terms of economic growth) over European-style stakeholder capitalism. Nevertheless, the U.S. economy runs large trade deficits, inequality in income and wealth has risen, and there is a growing disappointment...

This thesis evaluates the pass-through of the 2001 and 2012 Dutch Value Added Tax (VAT) increases to customer prices using a difference-in-differences model. To this end, the first difference and feasible generalised least squares estimators are introduced. Contrary to the conventional pooled OLS estimator, these estimators always show...

Building with Nature (BwN) is a relatively novel way of thinking for flood protection. Unlike traditional flood protection solutions that are poised to bring forces of nature to a halt, the BwN’s philosophy is to use natural dynamic processes for engineering advantage as a protection against natural disasters and events. Yet, the BwN design...

This thesis gathers, develops and evaluates several characterizations of multivariate tail dependence. It is established that the stable tail dependence function (STDF) is a suitable copula-based dependence function that fully captures the multivariate extremal dependence structure in all dimensions d≥2 and can be used to visualize the tail...

The wind energy industry is growing significantly, which increases the number of decommissioned wind turbines as well. The blades of wind turbines are mainly made of fiber reinforced thermoset polymer composite, which is difficult to recycle. Most blades currently end up in landfill or incineration which is a waste of this high value material....

Over the past three decades, the singular value decomposition has been increasingly used for various big data applications. As it allows for rank reduction of the input data matrix, it is not only able to compress the information contained, but can even reveal underlying patterns in the data through feature identification. This thesis explores...

A sit-snowboard is a weight supporting mechanism that allows people with lower extremity impairments to perform the sport of snowboarding. Comfort and control of the Twinrider (the only sit-snowboard on the market) are insufficient for advanced riders who reach higher speeds and ride more bumpy slopes. The goal of this study...
