When people think of the public library, they mostly imagine a silent place full of books; a place open to anyone who wants to access information without being disturbed.

The client and contractor have to take on a new role in Best Value projects, and this is not as comfortable or intuitive for everyone. People can behave irrationally in conflicts, but conflicts are bound to happen in projects. The objective of this research was to design a set of actions to prevent conflicts in Best Value projects. The first...

Given the substantial growth of the shale industry over the last decade, understanding flow in confined spaces will play a primordial role in the future of the upstream petroleum sector. Most compositional simulators are designed for standard (unconfined) reservoirs. Additional physical phenomena occurring in confined spaces such as capillary...

Smart grid systems (SGSs) are often considered as enablers to the transition to a sustainable economy and power system, because they integrate ICT with renewable energy into the electricity grid. Seemingly, there are societal concerns regarding the impact of SGSs, which underlie ethical values. Due to a lack of understanding and thus...

For programs controlling industrial processes, it is of vital importance that they produce results conform their functional specification. Furthermore, it is important that their running times are bounded, and that we can predict corresponding worst-case scenarios. Programs written in general purpose programming languages can crash or produce...

Imaging sensors are remarkable devices which are able to capture moments and present them in a form available to us for years to come. With the use of material properties and photon particles, charges can be produced which, in combination with electric circuitry, transform into information understandable to the human eye and eventually the brain...

Currently the performance of a traditional forward supply chain is broadly studied in literature. The less known reverse supply chain is an upcoming research theme, with more companies adapting this concept. In the beverages industry this reverse logistics are common and based on returnable packaging, so called empties. Beer brewers are under a...

In this thesis we look at the most cost-
effective trajectory for power limited rockets, i.e. the trajectory which costs the least amount of propellant. First some background information as well as the differences between thrust limited and power limited rockets will be discussed. Then the optimal trajectory for thrust limited rockets, the...

Tropical Cyclones (TCs) are in many regions responsible for severe damages and a great number of casualties, resulting from the severe wind speeds, rainfall, wave heights and storm surges. The recent hurricanes Harvey and Irma are examples of the great devastation that can be caused by a single event, and of the insufficient level of...

Costa Rica’s electric grid is dominated by renewable sources, mostly by hydropower 74% and with geothermal 12.4% and wind 10.6%. Hence, in dry season when the water levels drop significantly, there are difficulties to supply the national electricity demand (CENCE, 2016). Despite this and the added fact that the country’s has enormous solar...

The Manutenção Militar Complex (MMC) is situated along the river just outside of the city center of Lisbon. Within the industrial complex they produced food, uniforms and other goods for the Portuguese Army. Whilst the Portuguese Army reached 200,000 men in the 1960s, it is now reduced to 20,000 active soldiers. This meant that the factories of...
