Perception based analysis to add any value in the decision making process. Nowadays, a CBA is used to assess large infrastructure projects. However, this method has its disadvantages and perhaps another method can add more value in the decision-making process of public transport investments. This thesis investigates whether a perception-based...

An increasing number of existing structures are approaching the end of their technical service life. Therefore, monitoring these structures to get the information of their health condition, which is called structural health monitoring (SHM), is becoming more significant. In SHM, acoustic emission (AE) technique shows promising features in...

The development in technology and increased public interest has attributed to an unprecedented growth of E-mobility in recent years. Electric vehicles (EVs) even though viewed as emission free and environmental friendly can still contribute towards indirect emissions if charged by using traditional fossil fuels. The integration of renewable...

Production of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) is energy-intensive, consumes unrenewable natural resources and is one of the primary contributors to global warming (accounting for at least 5-8% of worldwide anthropogenic CO2 emissions). An alternative for OPC concrete is Alkali-Activated Concrete (AAC), for which Portland cement is completely...

From 2019 onwards, airline pilots will be required to follow stall training in simulators. A major open research question is which level of model fidelity is required for effective training. As part of an effort to answer this question, a stall model of a Cessna Citation II aircraft is developed from specifically-gathered flight test data. The...

Objects in geostationary transfer orbit (GTO) can collide with operative satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO) and geostationary orbit (GEO). Various organisations have laid down debris-mitigation guidelines that will be enforced by law for future launchers. One of the guidelines entails proving that the generated debris will re-enter in less than...

Stochastic resonance (SR) is a phenomenon where the performance of a nonlinear system subjected to noise is better than it is without noise. This phenomenon can be found both in natural and artificial systems, especially in threshold-based systems such as comparators or a population of neurons. As noise always exists and interacts with the...

Transparency and translucency are essential features of modern architecture. Glass products have been widely used in facade applications and recently their use has expanded to the load-bearing structure due their large in-plane compressive strength. However, the fragile nature of glass requires special treatment and attention to detail to avoid...

This country will be hugely polarized by 2050, if we do not act. The focus of the public debate is shifting towards differences between groups and people. Politicians exploit popular sentiment for their own success, they polarize in an attempt to give every group a voice. If we keep repeating and emphasizing our differences, it becomes a self...

A novel measurement system, the Ring of Fire, is deployed which enables the aerodynamic drag estimation of transiting cyclists. The system relies upon the use of large-scale stereoscopic PIV and the conservation of momentum within a control volume in a frame of reference moving with the athlete. The rider cycles at a velocity of approximately 8...
