A new trend to found offshore wind turbines at larger depths or on harder soils is to apply gravity based foundations (GBFs). These foundations are caissons with a set of properties which are different with respect to other caisson types. The number of constructed caissons is large and the timeframe for construction and transportation from land...

Accurately predicting the subsurface architecture is essential in finding potential reservoirs for subsurface engineering purposes. The architecture of the deposits is determined by both autogenic (internal) and allogenic (external) controls on the fluvial system and its deposition of sediments. However, the extents to which each of the two...

The Dutch flood defences are subjected to the new Dutch safety assessment program (WBI 2017) that incorporates the latest insights and safety regulations. As a consequence of the updated piping assessment model, studies are expected to identify more piping prone areas in the Netherlands, which makes it worthwhile to investigate alternative...

Wire rope slings are commonly used lifting tools in all sorts of engineering applications. Usually, slings are either loaded axially or they are bent around a load bearing element such as a shackle or pipe. In the latter case, the combination of bending and axial loading introduces additional stresses within the wire rope that cause a...

Artificial intelligence is getting more and more advanced. In the future, robots equipped with AI will behave an act similarly as humans do, and this raises concerns about how they are going to be governed. However, scientists are alerting that not enough attention is paid to AI from a sociotechnical point of view. Intelligent systems can...

In research, the overall power production in a wind farm is typically increased by employing model-based wind farm control. A controller, in an open-loop setting, operates based on the velocity of the wind flow, predicted by a wind farm model. For a controller to achieve the desired level of power production, a wind farm model has to be accurate...

Arsenic contamination of groundwater in Bangladesh is one of the largest naturally occurring groundwater calamity in South Asia. The rural people, about 64% of the population (104 million people) suffer the most from this grand challenge as they are still heavily dependent on groundwater based tubewells which are arsenic contaminated. Government...

Repeat-pass acquisitions with coherent Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems, preserving both phase and amplitude, are more readily available than ever (Bruzzone, 2016). Phase measurements from SAR systems have seen widespread use in the Interferometric Synthetic Aperture (InSAR) technique to measure deformations and elevations since the late...

The ever-increasing competition has led firms to higher adoption rate of technology to drive business efficiency and operation. One of the disruptive technologies of this century is Artificial Intelligence (AI), with virtual agents as one of its application. To get the maximum value of virtual agents, businesses attempt to personalize their...

The aim of this thesis is to analyze if a fully electric super yacht is feasible, desirable and viable. This is done using a “research by design” approach using the current (and future) drivers, enablers and barriers to design a concept.

First, a vision is developed using the ViP (Vision in Product design) method, in order to create a...

Administration of drugs can help in the recovery of the brain for example after a stroke. There are many available delivery routes such as intravenous injection or local injection in the brain. Whereas, the former encounters problems with systemic side effects, the latter requires multiple invasive brain surgery. Local drug administration could...

Organizations benefit from improved cybersecurity threat detection capabilities if they share information in a community of their peers. However, organizations are unlikely to share the sensitive information that is most valuable as this poses individual risks. Information sharing in cybersecurity communities therefore forms a collective action...

Credit analysis is required in a wide variety of decision of a modern economy.
It includes understanding the credit risk of small-medium enterprises (SMEs),
which today is the most significant contributor to the economy of almost every
nation. Creditors usually use credit scoring as a tool to predict the probability of
the SMEs...

A numerically tractable Stochastic Model Predictive Control (SMPC) strategy using Conditional Value at Risk (CVaR) optimization for discrete-time linear time-invariant systems, with state and input constraints, subject to additive uncertainty, is presented. SMPC strategies make use of the probabilistic description of uncertainty to define chance...
