Movable bridge decks experience critical expansion in summer, leading to uncertainty and unpredictability in its availability doe to improper docking and safety hazard. If the bridges are not cooled soon, the inertia of expansion stays, causing prolongation of availability problems. Structural health monitoring of such bridges with a predictive...

Weather and climate influence life in many ways; varying climatic conditions can be associated with varying human cultures and on a day-to-day basis, the weather influences our plans and mood. As such, a proper prediction of the weather is of great importance. Ultimately, the weather is fueled by solar irradiation, which changes sharply over the...

To simulate the airflow through a wind farm across a wide range of atmospheric conditions, microscale models (e.g., large-eddy simulation, LES, models) have to be coupled with mesoscale models, because microscale models lack the atmospheric physical processes to represent time-varying local forcing. Here we couple mesoscale model outputs to a...

Climate-optimized routing is an operational measure to effectively reduce the climate impact of aviation with a slight increase in aircraft operating costs. This study examined variations in the flight characteristics among five aircraft routing strategies and discusses several characteristics of those routing strategies concerning typical...

Severe wind gusts associated with mid-latitude convective storms contribute to an increasing amount of natural hazard related losses in Europe. Modifications of the atmosphere associated with anthropogenic climate change are projected to increase the frequency of favorable conditions for convective storms, and it is absolutely critical to...

The increasing penetration of weather-dependent energy sources brings additional challenges to the operation of the power system. Wind power forecasting is a valuable resource for these power operators: a tool that aids the decision-making process and facilitates risk management. On the other hand, the progress of machine learning and their...

In this thesis, the quality and usefulness of crowdsourced precipitation measurements from 01/01/2019 to 31/01/2020 of 63 stations held by farmers in Burundi are investigated. Common sources of errors in the measurements are identified following field visits and discussions with farmers. Two filters for identifying and removing faulty zeros and...

Fog is of critical importance to forecast accurately, not least because of the hazard it presents to human safety. Yet, while weather forecasts have improved significantly over recent decades—and continue to improve—fog remains a particularly challenging phenomenon to predict. The research presented within this thesis takes a step back from...

This thesis aims to provide passive design recommendations to improve the design quality of low income houses in the Philippines, by evaluating the indoor environmental quality of the pilot floating house project. The pilot project is the result of researches carried out by Pieter Ham and Joran Van Schaik to find a solution for the housing...

Space weather phenomena such as scintillations of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) signals are of increasing importance for aviation, the maritime, and civil engineering industries. The ionospheric plasma irregularities causing scintillations are associated with strong gradients in ionospheric plasma density. To provide nowcasts and...

This project is part of the Complex Projects graduation studio, which investigates urban challenges as a result of political, economic, and environmental change. In this project especially environmental change is being considered, but also political and economic changes are intrinsically linked to this environmental change. With the current...

The flight planning process is an extensive and long process to direct and maintain a high level of operations within the airspace. As air traffic demand grows year after year, it's worthwhile to optimise the European air traffic system further. One way of optimising the system, is by creating optimal flight schedules that solve for demand...

With regard to climate change and air pollution within cities, interest in sustainable modes of transportation for regular use has taken a rise. Utilitarian cycling is being seen as a frontrunner for replacing everyday motorized travels within and between cities, supported by the rapid emergence of the electric bicycle. Governments are trying to...

Mesoscale-to-microscale coupling (MMC) aims to address the limited scope of traditional large-eddy simulations by driving the microscale flow with information concerning large-scale weather patterns provided by mesoscale models. We present a new offline MMC technique for horizontally homogeneous microscale flow conditions, in which internal...

Tropospheric signals are considered as one of the most important performance limitations to compute the deformations caused by earthquake, subsidence, volcano, and so on using interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) technique. Various correction methods have been proposed to reduce the effect of these signals in displacement fields...

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are vulnerable to sea-level rise and hydro-meteorological hazards. In addition to the efforts to reduce the hazards, a holistic strategy that also addresses the vulnerability and exposure of residents and their assets is essential to mitigate the impacts of such hazards. Evaluating the socioeconomic...

A hybrid neural network model, comprising of a convolutional neural network and a multilayer perceptron network, has been developed for day-ahead forecasting of regional scale wind power production. This model requires operational weather forecasts as input and also has the capability to ingest data from ensemble forecasts. Even though the...

Understanding, comparing, and accurately predicting water demand at different spatial scales is an important goal that will allow effective targeting of the appropriate operational and conservation efforts under an uncertain future. This study uses data relating to water consumption available at the household level, as well as postcode...

A series of probabilistic models were bench-marked during the European Energy Markets forecasting Competition 2020 to assess their relative accuracy in predicting aggregated Swedish wind power generation using as input historic weather forecasts from a numerical weather prediction model. In this paper, we report the results of one of these...

We develop and study two approaches for the prediction of optical refraction effects in the lower atmosphere. Refraction can cause apparent displacement or distortion of targets when viewed by imaging systems or produce steering when propagating laser beams. Low-cost, time-lapse camera systems were deployed at two locations in New Mexico to...
