When reflection images are studied, often only the zero-offset reflectivity is considered, however, taking into account the angle-dependent reflectivity can add additional information about the Earth's subsurface. This additional information can be used to extract the properties of the subsurface using the amplitude variation with offset (AVO)...

To ensure safety and security of imported goods, customs authorities perform risk assessment on incoming goods. European customs use declaration data provided by traders to execute risk analysis. Lacking availability of this data to customs authorities currently hinders proper risk management and poses threats for the European socio-economy. To...

Cities are on the rise: Recent years, cities have faced an increase in economic growth, employment rates and population numbers. As a result, the accessibility and liveability of cities is under pressure, mainly due to an increase in the number of cars. One of the possibilities to cope with this problem is to free existing cities from cars,...

This research has the goal to analyse the influence of neighbourhood characteristics on people’s willingness to adopt Mobility as a Service (MaaS) instead of the car for new residential areas. It estimated the influence of a reduced parking comfort, MaaS-hub availability and aditional quality of the overall neighbourhood on the willingness to...

Teleoperation of a robot is often necessary when the remote site is not safe for humans. Moreover, to interact with dynamic environments safely, a teleoperation method called teleimpedance, which allows the human operator to control the impedance of the robot, is used. The main drawback of this method is that the human workload may increase....

Due to an exponential growth in the number of shipments of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), the amount of these devices operating in the sky has increased remarkably over the last few years. This led to an increasing number of proximity incidents with manned aircraft. Since these devices share certain airspace with rotorcraft, the question arises...

The rise of the so called Insurtechs, leveraging digital technologies to offer superior and personalized offerings, has shaken the insurance industry leading to a new age of innovation and business models. In addition, the importance of a digital customer experience is increasing as the number of sales completed online are rising. Customers...

Wind farms experience significant efficiency losses due to the aerodynamic interaction between turbines. A possible control technique to reduce these losses to a minimum is yaw-based wake steering. This thesis investigates the feasibility of this technique by calibrating a surrogate model called the FLOw Redirection and Induction in Steady-state...

Debusscher, C.M.J. (author)
Due to the limited availability of sites on both land and sea, there is a need to maximize the power density of wind farms whilst limiting the adverse wake effect between the wind turbines that cause power losses and/or increased load cases. The study focuses on analyzing the potential of combining yaw-based wake-steering and constant blade...

Wind turbine wakes cause significant reductions in power production and increased fatigue damage for downwind turbines. Thus, they affect the wind levelized cost of energy. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can be used to quantify the wake characteristics, whereby Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) has the most potential for industrial...

Turbulent boundary layers are responsible for up to 89 % of the skin friction drag of civil aircraft. This shows that in regard to the current social sensitivity towards climate friendly aviation a reduction of tur- bulent skin friction could have a large impact. On the one side greenhouse gas emissions by aviation could be reduced and on the...

Transport infrastructures that connect ports to the hinterland are important enablers of economic growth and development in the region. Therefore, infrastructure owners and governments on different levels are engaging in climate adaptation to adapt transport infrastructures to actual or expected climatic hazards. Existing research on the...

All major airport operators face a similar challenge, namely ensuring maximum throughput and maintaining high runway utilisation. A key part of this is accurately planning aircraft movements on the ground to avoid queueing and associated delays. A primary indicator of the operator performance in this area is the Taxi-Out Time. The research...

Cities are getting more congested and polluted as they grow; transportation is one of the contributors to this. Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) could revolutionise the transportation sector for people. In MaaS, the car-sharing schemes will play a vital role and can help in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, in the long-term, these...

In the context of this thesis, the effect of various diesel-methanol blends in a diesel engine compared to conventional marine diesel oil is investigated by experiments and in-cylinder simulations. The main differences obtained between diesel and methanol are the lower heating value, heat of vaporization and cetane number. During the experiments...

Our planet is witnessing an unprecedented increase in temperature that is causing frequent damages such as extreme weather conditions, acidification of oceans and extinction of species that may soon become irreparable. Various studies have reported that greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from human activities in industries that produce 'material...

The rise of citizen science has drawn policymakers' attention. With a shift towards participatory and transparent governance, linking policies to citizen science could contribute to create the evidence base and social acceptance for policy-making, and further counter-play populism and post-truth politics. This study aims to gain empirical...

A method is developed to automatically analyze over 200000 images of a single mature tree. This method is assessed and applied to a tree located at Risø in Roskilde, Denmark, next to two meteorological masts. Image aspects such as the surface area and the center of area are extracted from the images and they are related to the wind statistics....

As Needham (2015) concluded based on researching 700 storm surge events: “tropical cyclone induced floods are among the world’s deadliest and destructive natural hazards”. Due to this growing threat, there is a growing need for evacuation policies in case of an impending cyclone, in order to reduce the negative effects of a cyclone. The...
