The Bristol Channel has one of the largest tidal ranges in the world, with a mean tide of nearly 10.5 m at Avonmouth, and speculations on how to harness this energy date back well over a century. One method is tidal range by the use of tidal lagoons, which operates on principles akin to hydropower. The lagoon is essentially an enclosed reservoir...

Currently, Air Traffic Control is responsible for the separation of air traffic in our limited airspace. To facilitate the continuing growth of air traffic, an ambitious plan is to give the responsibility of the separation task to the pilots of the aircraft. The behavior of existing conflict resolution methods within this decentralized approach...

Insufficient information on soil parameters and their spatial variability pose as a main factors of uncertainty in geotechnical design. When soil response differs from the expected, the notion of inverse analysis becomes relevant; back-calculating the parameter set able to reproduce the monitored observations. Accordingly, its application...

In the sport of long track speed skating, in recent years there has been an increasing desire for training tools which provide deeper technical insight of the skating movement to the athlete and coaches. In previous literature a variety of measurement systems have been presented; one such system included the instrumented klapskate developed at...

TheNetherlands is a densely populated country and is located in an areawhere the shallowsubsurfacemainly consists ofHolocene and Pleistocene soils. To build permanent structures, enough bearing capacity is needed to provide sufficient support for these structures. However, Holocene (soft) soils typically do not provide sufficient support. In the...

Community Question-Answer(CQA) services are online portals with a community of people that share similar interests, and post question-answers for solving the difficulties they have. These services have huge social impact and have become a place where knowledge is created and distributed. Despite the advances in Question Routing and...

Knowledge discovery and data mining (KDD) is the process that extracts new knowledge from data. Data scientists program their solutions of their KDD challenges in data mining programming scripts. Data mining programming scripts contain multiple or all steps of the KDD process. In other words, these scripts start with data and end with knowledge....

Improving energy efficiency is marked as one of the key strategies to tackle global warming. Therefore policy makers try to design policies that steer our society towards a more energy efficient way of living. An important target for policy makers is the residential sector. Households use fuel and electricity, to power all sorts of residential...

EU climate goals force EU member states to increase the share of renewable electricity generation in their respective electricity markets. To reach these climate goals, offshore wind energy is regarded as one of the main technologies that can contribute to a full transition towards a fossil-free electricity system. Furthermore, 230 Gigawatts (GW...

The growing interest in organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) based power systems has encouraged ample amount of literature on the design methodologies for unconventional turbo-machinery. These machines generally operate in the so-called Non-Ideal Compressible Fluid Dynamic (NICFD) region of the working fluid where the thermophysical properties and...

Time-frequency analysis and digital signal processing are important tools in the field of coastal engineering. Both can be done using techniques like Fourier or wavelet analysis, however, analysts from this field experience a threshold to use wavelet analysis instead of their current methods, often Fourier-based. This is due to the lack of...

Within railway engineering practice continuous rails is created by welding lengths of rail. Conventional rail welding processes include aluminothermic/thermite welding and flash-butt welding. Both welding processes result in a large width of the weld and heat affected zone (HAZ). The weld and HAZ show irregularities along the rail surface...

Flooding is one of the most frequent and terrible natural disasters. For the coastal areas connecting inland with the open sea, the occurrence of flooding could be caused by high flows from inland rivers or high-water levels at open sea (e.g., from tsunamis or storm surge). There is also one extreme case that high sea level and high inland flow...

The acoustics of a space contribute much to the perceived size and atmosphere of the environment. Modeling these acoustics in virtual environments can make a big improvement to the immersion of the player. There are very accurate models that can reproduce realistic acoustics in virtual spaces, but these are computationally very expensive....

The electrification ratio of Sumba Island has been increased in the past five years from about 24.5% in 2010 to about 43% 2015 in which 55% of the share supplied by renewable energy resources (Hivos, 2015). Despite the progress on electrification ratio, there are still about 238 out of 433 villages which do not have electricity access (PLN, 2017...
