In the Netherlands an estimated amount of 1.75 million people are suffering from asthma, from which an estimated amount of 300,000 are children. Even though the treatment of asthma has come a long way, nonadherence in asthma patients regarding their treatment remains high. This nonadherence is in part linked to the visual appearance of asthma...

Commercial greenhouse gas emissions from aviation are proliferating, as is the concern among freight carriers to minimize their carbon footprint. From a corporate point of view, the United Nations International Civil Aviation Organization ( ICAO) expects aircraft emissions to triple by 2050, with aviation accounting for 25% of the world's carbon...

This study defines who is at risk of automation and discusses policies to ensure the vulnerable groups are seen. The study of Nedelkoska and Quintini (2018) is taken as the role model: The risk of automation for individuals across OECD countries is calculated by associating the expert assessment conducted by Frey and Osborne (2013) with...

The efficiency of a logistic service provider's network can be improved by implementing a receiver-led consolidation policy. This policy means that shipments destined to the same location are consolidated in one truck. The literature states that by doing this the costs, CO2 emissions and number of vehicle movements can be reduced. However,...

Rivers have long since exceeded their natural purpose of discharging excess water, by becoming subject to many practical applications demanded by present day society [61]. In order to comply withthis variety of needs and demands, the necessity for proper water management arises, which in turn requires data and knowledge of hydrological...

Type IV composite pressure vessels (CPVs) are used commercially for the gaseous storage of hydrogen in fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). However, their economic implementation requires material optimization and a reliable prediction of the vessel strength. In this regard, their burst when loaded under internal pressure is impacted by the...

Despite the increased popularity of the application of load bearing glass in the built environment, its design does rarely address sustainable or circular aspects. This Master’s Thesis analyses what the influence of connections is on the sustainable performance of structural glass and informs about the limitations and possibilities of sustainable...

This thesis is a contribution to the research on Active Inference for Robotics. Active Inference is an intricate, intriguing theory from neuroscience, a field in which it has already gained a greater following and popularity. This theory, based on the underlying Free Energy Principle, provides a unified account of perception, action and learning...

Machine learning is used for security purposes, to differ between the benign and the malicious. Where decision trees can lead to understandable and explainable classifications, an adversary could manipulate the model input to evade detection, e.g. the malicious been classified as the benign. State-of-the-art techniques improve the robustness by...

A fundamental task of intelligent and autonomous robots is to infer from observations the state of the world. This inference is generally achieved by employing a filter, which consists of a model and filtering law. Learning this model and filtering law from observations is another fundamental part of robotics, and is generally referred to as...

Practical problem: In today's digitally transformed and connected world, data has become a critical strategic corporate resource. In this context, data marketplaces are becoming more popular since they enable wider accessibility and more efficient interaction among companies. Despite this, there are several barriers in sharing data through this...

The security and reliability of the European power system network that is used to transmit electricity from producers to consumers is under increasing pressure. The penetration of renewable energy resources that have a variable and unpredictable energy output and the rising cost of the operation of fossil-based power generators are negatively...

To develop warning systems for flood events, create precipitation-runoff relationships, validate runoff models, or to understand the behaviour of rivers, understanding of the amount of water flowing through rivers is needed. The low-cost and novel gauging method using Large-Scale Particle Image Velocimetry (LSPIV) could complement discharge...

This research is focused on the proactive-reactive rescheduling process of the Train Unit Shunting Problem (TUSP) on train maintenance shunting yards. An important difference between a scheduling process and the rescheduling process is that a reschedule must be both feasible and desirable (similar to pre-schedule), while a schedule does not...

The vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) concept in its current, fixed-pitch iteration is hindered by lower aerodynamic efficiency compared to existing horizontal axis wind turbines. Implementing a form of circulation control on the VAWT by actively pitching the blades throughout the turbine’s rotation could potentially enhance power capture...

We analyze the internal representations that deep Reinforcement Learning (RL) agents form of their environments and whether these representations correspond to what such agents should ideally learn. The purpose of this comparison is both a better understanding of why certain algorithms or network architectures perform better than others and the...

A novel 2D finite element method (FEM) on unstructured grid for nonlinear time-dependent deformation of materials is developed. The objective is to model the complex deformation behavior of the rock salt, inside which caverns are mined to store green fuels (such as hydrogen). The analyses and the developments of the present work allow for...

In the past decade, MDO researchers have developed capabilities to simultaneously optimise the shape and internal structure of aircraft based on coupled high fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite Element Analysis. However, to date the finite element methods used for the structural analysis are typically linear and are known to be...

The graduation project was conducted at the CFD department of Nuclear Research And Consultancy Group (NRG) in Petten. The modeling and simulation of Taylor bubble flow using CFD can contribute significantly to the topic of nuclear reactor safety and in particular, in the emergency cooling of nuclear reactors during a loss of coolant accident, or...
