This thesis introduces a fragility-based framework in order to perform a custom assessment of the complex Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier. By applying a conditional approach to loading parameters, the statistical dependency between failure mechanisms and structure elements can be described separately for the strength and loading part of the...

The origin of the Galilean moons have puzzled the scientists for centuries. The most recent theories affirm that they formed within a circumplanetary disk (CPD), a disk of gas and dust very similar to the protoplanetary disk (PPD), from which the planets formed. However, there are still many uncertainties on this CPD, such as its size, mass, the...

Urban pluvial flooding occurs when the run-off converted rainfall exceeds the capacity of the sewer or stormwater system (Houston et al., 2011). This can result in damage to ecology, infrastructure, disruption to human activities, injuries and in the worst-case scenario, loss of life (Biniyam et al., 2017). With the expected increase in the...

Enabling mobile robots to autonomously navigate complex environments is essential for real-world deployment in commercial, industrial, military, health care, and domestic settings. Prior methods approach this problem by having the robot maintain an internal map of the world and then use a localization and planning method to navigate through the...

The accelerating growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to the development of many different communication protocols to enable the most optimal environment for the nature of IoT. Requiring long range and low power communication abilities, has resulted in LPWANs (low-power WANs); one such LPWAN is LoRaWAN (Long Range WAN) which is studied...

Surprisingly, liquid media of dispersed dry micron-sized particles can generate tremendous impact resistance, can grow solid protrusions when acoustically-vibrated and can cause a range of other peculiar phenomena to objects sinking in their interior, even though their appearance essentially remains ’liquid-like’. These heterogeneous mixtures of...

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) has the ability to reduce ground traffic congestion by enabling rapid on-demand flight through three-dimensional airspace. Due to the use of electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) vehicles with distributed electric propulsion, UAM operates under zero operational emissions and cheaper and at a lower noise level...

Many processes rely on the availability of the Internet. The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is widely used for exchanging routing information between routers and is essential for the successful operation of the Internet. Because BGP has not been designed with security in mind, BGP anomalies such as origin hijacks, route leaks, and link failure...

The largest part of the European ports are engaged into addressing proactively environmental and societal issues in order to achieve an always more sustainable development. However, there are several sources that indicate that gaps and barriers exist which impede the sustainable development of many Mediterranean ports. In order to deal with the...

For this thesis, a probabilistic techno-economic model is developed for deep, direct use geothermal projects in the Netherlands. As a case study, data from the future DAP doublet (TU Delft) is inserted wherein multiple scenarios are researched that model variations in well capacity, energy prices, project design, government policies, brine gas...

This study presents the results of small scale flume experiments on a submerged rectangular cylinder subjected to a current, regular wave and combined wave-current environment. The objective of the study is to gain more knowledge about the hydrodynamics around and the kinematics of a submerged structure, to give a contribute to the research...

Patients with 1p/19q co-deleted low grade glioma (LGGs) have better prognosis and react better to certain treatments than patients with intact 1p/19q LGG. Currently, information about the 1p/19q co-deletion status is obtained by means of an invasive procedure called biopsy. As an alternative, non-invasive techniques to extract this information...

In this day and age, failure of railway switches is managed using preventive and corrective maintenance, not predictive maintenance. These maintenance methods may allow for failure, where such a feailure could have been predicted. To combat this issue, this paper proposes a real-time predictive maintenance framework, which can identify the...

One of the most promising ideas in autonomous vehicle control systems is letting the vehicle drive autonomously outside the normal, linear, operating region and letting it "drift". By doing so, the maneuverability of the vehicle could be enhanced. To enable systems that can control this behaviour, estimation of certain vehicle states is needed...

Collaborative search, where the activities of multiple users are combined to satisfy their information need, is an effective tool to to handle complex search tasks. People search collaboratively in groups of varying sizes. Various collaborative search systems have been studied in previous work, but they only investigate a fixed group size....

Lagoons are connected to the sea by the presence of openings along their barriers. These openings, also known as tidal inlets, can either be natural or man-made and they highly determine the hydrodynamics within the lagoon system. Tidal inlet systems are found worldwide, and many of them are difficult to be understood due to their complex...

Neural interface in the form of microelectrodes is used to monitor and treat spinal cord injury and other neurological disorders by the means of recording and stimulation. Despite the apparent result of these electrical interventions, understanding of the mechanism behind neural stimulation is still inadequate. The use of optical monitoring...
