Measurements of a tachymetric network in the geothermal area of Bjarnarflag in North-East Iceland are performed during four consecutive years (2015-2018). For the yearly adjustment of the measurements an alternative iteration scheme to Baarda’s ’B-method of testing’ is proposed, because the level of significance of the F-test performed in the...

As material stocks are depleting and the building sector plays a big role in using these materials a circular economy can bring a solution to this depleting problem. Within the thoughts of applying the circular economy to the built environment, upscaling would not be possible without the community to engage to the topic. This project of a...

This study aims to provide insight into how factors relating to privacy and incentives influence people's willingness to participate in sharing their vehicle based sensing data with governmental parties for the purposes of improved dynamic traffic management in the Netherlands. Through the use of a stated preference experiment data is gathered...

This research has been performed to help the Dutch government with the decisions and choices it has to make in order to meet the requirements of the Paris Agreement and the Climate Agreement. Decentralized energy systems can be a solution for meeting these requirements, however trade-offs have to be made between different system criteria, which...

The PID controller is one of the most used controllers in the industry. However, fundamental limitations due to linearity restrict its performances when higher bandwidth, stability, and precision are required simultaneously in today’s high-tech industry. Reset control is a promising nonlinear control strategy which can overcome these limitations...

RFID technology is slowly replacing traditional bar codes as a way to identify and track objects and individuals. However, consumer-oriented market penetration has been limited as dedicated RFID readers carry a high start-up cost. Furthermore, interactions with individual tags require special-purpose RFID readers. We present a novel RFID tag...

KLM Engineering & Maintenance Component Services manages a spare part pool. They are responsible for ensuring spare part availability for their contracted customers. For rotable spare parts, which are interchangeable and repairable, the supply chain is closed-loop. As the demand for spare parts is sporadic, with large zero demand periods, a...

The use of winglets is known to benefit lift-to-drag ratios and induced drag. Coupling this benefit with the use of a rotatable component within the winglets allows the conversion of a passive aerodynamic device into an active manoeuver load alleviation device. A rotatable downlet allows the reduction of wing root bending moment by up to 8%....

Over the course of the last decade the role of data in society, businesses and governments has changed tremendously. New technologies continue to influence the way data is collected, managed and used in organisations public and private alike. For public organisations and governments, the promise of data lies in data-enhanced decision-making....

The use of protons to treat cancer has expanded rapidly in the past two decades. For safe and effective proton therapy, the proton range in a patient’s body must be accurately determined. Current treatment planning is based on X-ray computed tomography images, which might cause uncertainty because of the different behaviour between protons and X...

The Earth is not the only planet in the universe. It has been known for millennia that there are other planets and other bodies in the solar system. Moreover, as recent as, 1995 it has been confirmed that other stars also host planets. But how did they form? This is the main question that planet formation research has been trying to answer for...

Architecture has been using materials that are extremely durable, disregarding the lifespan and purpose of the structure. While this approach to materiality provides a high standard for structural stability and environmental control, it also causes a large volume of waste at the end of the life span of the building. While the material that’s...

The aim of this research thesis is to use machine learning models to distinguish owners of heat pumps from non-owners of heat pumps based on load profiles and temperature data only. As is the case with data mining project, its workflow can be divided into business understanding, data gathering, analysis, modeling and interpretation and...

Genoa is, and always has been, a fragmented city. This condition originates on the one hand in its physical location and on the other in the nature of the genovese people. This results in an urban archipelago: a combination of smaller patches of city, functioning on their own, as independent systems. This, in combination with a distinct...

Recent major tsunami events generated by earthquakes inundated coastal cities and caused extreme destruction and loss of human lives. The collapse of coastal bridges due to tsunami wave impact represents a huge obstacle for rescue works. The need to understand tsunami effects and develop tsunami-resilient bridges became apparent in the aftermath...

Dam reservoirs form a crucial part for human society storing water, controlling floods, providing hydropower, water for irrigation and drinking. Annually 1% of the worldwide dam reservoirs storage capacity is lost, caused by sedimentation. The inflow of sediment and reduction of flow velocity and turbulence in the reservoir pro- vides favourable...

Interobserver reliability is a problem in behavioural studies. In order to increase the interobserver reliability, a formal checker is used to study behaviour. Together with a clear ethogram of basic behaviours, this tool can be used to automatically check for more complex behaviours and thus reducing the risk of biases introduced by human...

In the Netherlands 2 million tons organic bio-waste is not fully sorted and ends up burned or landfilled. This process is unnecessarily harming the health of people, animals and our planet every year. With our waste quantities only increasing, this is an important topic on the European agenda.

The creation of user-driven, self...
