Persuasive in-vehicle systems aim to intuitively influence the attitudes and/or behaviour of a driver (i.e. without forcing them). However, the challenge in using these systems in a driving setting, is to maximise the persuasive effect without infringing upon the driver's safety. This paper proposes a conceptual model for driver persuasion at...

For simulating an adsorption/elution step for separation and recovery of flavor-active esters in beer in the presence of ethanol at various temperatures, and validating the predicted breakthrough behavior, equilibrium data on concentration of each ester is required. This work evaluates the application of frontal analysis method (FA) for...

The Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram (MFD) describes the relation between accumulation and speed in a zone. While theoretically expected, empirical validations have been done with limited numbers of floating car (e.g., taxi) data, and loop detectors. This paper will verify existence, shape and crispness of the MFD using Floating Car Data ...

Open access to flight data from Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) has provided researchers with more insights for air traffic management than aircraft tracking alone. With large quantities of trajectory data collected from a wide range of different aircraft types, it is possible to extract accurate aircraft performance...

Nonsmooth dynamics of a Tuned Mass Damper system with lateral stops are studied using an alternating frequency/time harmonic balancing (AFT-HB) method. To this end, an extremely stiff end stop nonlinearity is considered. The application range of AFT-HB is investigated by including up to 250 harmonics in the external force, as well as in the...

This article analyzes ‘rules of the game’ that influence decision-making concerning the introduction of smart energy systems. Smart energy systems are considered as a solution to optimize and make energy systems ‘future-proof’. Their introduction, however, is challenged by a complex multi-stakeholder configuration, and by ‘rules of the game’ ...

In the new-generation smart mobility paradigm, mobility-as-a-service (MaaS)
systems have shown the most potential to offer integrated mobility platforms. MaaS is essentially an amalgamation of services tailored to match individuals’ diverse travel demands, many of which are demand-responsive transit (DRT) or DRT-like, addressing the much...

Disease model systems, such as the zebrafish, play an important role in understanding the onset of diseases like cancer and monitor the efficacy of new drugs. In the past, non-invasive methods for screening, diagnostics and treatment monitoring were intrinsically from the outside. In the past decades, there has been a strong drive to look inside...

The paramount importance of good hearing in everyday life has driven an exploration into the improvement of hearing capabilities of (hearing impaired) people in acoustic challenging situations using hearing assistive devices (HADs). HADs are small portable devices, which primarily aim at improving the intelligibility of an acoustic source that...

Steels are still, and probably will remain in future, the primary choice for applications as structural materials. This is not only because of the reasonable ratios of properties over production costs, but also owing to the versatile properties realisable via variety of microstructures achieved by controlling the solid-state phase...

The issue of urban resilience concerns a multitude of urban systems and spaces. This thesis focuses on Urban River Corridors (URCs)—that is, urban spaces where the overlap between the urban systems (carrying the ’social-‘) and the river system (carrying the ‘-ecological’) is at the highest intensity—as strategic spaces with a potentially high...

In this thesis, we explore the physics of optical singularities. We investigate them in light waves propagating randomly in a planar nanophotonic chip. With a custom-built nearfield microscope, we map the electromagnetic field resulting from the interference of these light waves. Our technique gives access to the full vectorial and complex...

In the vicinity of motorway ramps, multiple manoeuvres are performed by drivers that are entering or exiting the motorway, and by drivers that anticipate on, or cooperate with, the other entering and exiting vehicles. These manoeuvres involve lane-changes, changes in speed, and changes in headways. This results in changes in lane flow...

Rivers have been trained for centuries by series of transverse groynes. This generally results in damages to their ecosystems as well as in undesirable longterm morphological developments. We analyze here the possibility to train rivers in a new way by subdividing their channel in parallel channels with specific functions with longitudinal...

Nowadays, wheel-rail (W/R) interfaces are suffering from the practical problems (e.g. wear, rolling contact defects) with the increase of train speed and traffic density. For accurate prediction of wear and/or growth of rolling contact defects, rapid determination of detailed contact responses (i.e. contact stresses & strains) using...

The topic of this thesis is design for recycling (DfR) of electronic products. More than ever before, electronic products are intruding into our everyday life, both in the household and in industry, resulting in increasing numbers of electronic products ending up in waste streams (also known as electronic waste, or e-waste). Electronic products...

Generation of electricity using renewable energy sources is becoming an integral part of the electrical energy mix. A substantial fraction of the electrical energy is foreseen to be generated by photovoltaic (PV) solar cells that directly convert light into electricity. Large scale application of building integrated PV is envisaged to aid the...

One of the pillars of the scientific method is the fact that all scientific predictions and explanations of phenomena in the universe are testable. Testing in the context of physics involves the action of measuring. Thus, the measurement process plays an important role in physics.
While classically we all understand the idea of measurement...

The research investigates How can the morphological approach in combination with the pattern language approach assist urban designers to achieve historical continuity in urban design both on theory and application levels.
This research overviews the developments and applications of the two approaches worldwide with a special emphasis on the...

This dissertation is about improving performance of projects delivering complex systems. Examples of such systems are ships, infrastructure systems and process plants. Mostly these systems are one of a kind, so called ‘one-offs’ and are the ‘product’ of one or more coherent projects each executed by a consortium of enterprises. The lifecycle of...
