The climate emergency calls for a global shift towards a low-carbon economy, to preserve natural resources and biodiversity, while limiting global warming and its consequences. This project focuses on the impact of distribution centres, intended for the storage of commercial goods. Warehouses are characterised by large flexible spaces and simple...

This study focuses on water electrolysis and aims to provide suggestions for the company XINTC Global, for the design of the electrolyser and the accompanying flow network. The most important parameters for this project are the dimensions of the cell, the geometry of the piping network, the electrode gap, the volumetric flow rate and circulation...

Introduction. Needle electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic tool used to identify and localise neuromuscular disorders, but the current evaluation by a neurologist is subjective and requires years of training. Artificial intelligence can be used to automatically classify needle EMG signals. However, previous studies in this area have been...

Due to accelerating climate change, which entails more extreme storm conditions and exponential sea level rise, the protective function of our dikes and levees is under growing pressure. The presence of so-called forelands (e.g., beach, mudflat, and tidal marsh) are promising Nature-based Solutions to reduce the probability of dike failure and...

This report presents two different methods for controlling the remnant magnetisation state of a permanent magnet within a Hybrid Tunable Magnet Actuator. Addressing, individually, the desire for optimum energy efficiency and control accuracy. The purpose of this actuator is to track a quasi-static position reference without continuous thermal...

Na een lange tijd waarin woningcorporaties door overheidsbeleid zijn beperkt in hun taken met betrekking tot sociale woningbouw, lijkt het belang van de woningcorporaties in het oplossen van het tekort aan middenhuur meer erkend te worden. Dit is te zien aan de recente afschaffing van de verhuurderheffing en de Nationale Prestatieafspraken met...

In 2022, the Netherlands are confronted by two major problems: a housing shortage and an excess of nitrogen emissions. This excess of nitrogen emissions is primarily the result of livestock farms, which cause problems in close proximity to Natura 2000 areas. The housing- and nitrogen crises are intertwined because certain housing developments...

Street view imagery (SVI) is one of the largest (growing) resources in urban analytics. A global close-up of the urban environment, if you will, which is rich in (untapped) information such as floor count. Floor count is useful in many applications, from improving energy consumption calculations to creation of 3D city models without elevation...

The Yuanyang Rice Terraced Fields are located south of Ailao Mountain in Yuanyang County, Yunnan Province, China. They're at the core area of the Honghe Hani Terraced Fields, stretching for more than 166 square kilometres, and a wonder of terraced farming civilisation created by generations of Hani people using the steep hills of the unique...

A large share of the buildings today is still masonry buildings, both reinforced and unreinforced. Post-earthquake reconnaissance studies have shown a remarkable difference between the performance of reinforced and unreinforced masonry buildings. While the unreinforced masonry buildings tend to suffer severe damage, even collapse, resulting in...

In order to limit the global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius, all sectors have to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and become more sustainable. This also includes the building sector, which is in Europe responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption (European Commission, 2020). A way to work towards this goal is by retrofitting...

The combination of the monumental building, the Rotonde, and the panoramic painting ‘Panorama Mesdag’ is one of the few remaining exhibitions of its kind. The organization of the museum aims to preserve the building and painting while also wanting to decrease the carbon footprint of the museum. The objective of this research is to design a...

Inequality in the city of Amsterdam is growing. While in the 70s, the city was described as a prime example of a Just City, the contemporary metropolis is growing as a city of the elite. Neoliberal planning in recent decades has focused on attracting knowledge workers to Amsterdam with a strategy of privatization, deregulation and...

Since its production concentrations of the manmade chemical compounds PFAS found in the environment has increased significantly. The properties created by incorporating these chemicals, make them attractive for industrial usage and for many consumer products. These chemicals bioaccumulate and are very persistent. With known adverse health...

Car-following behaviour is a fundamental element for vehicle manoeuvre. The heterogeneity among driving behaviour has gained significant importance since some researchers argued that it might be relevant to capacity drop and traffic oscillations. Driver space is an area around a vehicle, and drivers will feel a rapid increase in discomfort when...

Limiting transport poverty is consequential in improving well-being and employment levels, which play meaningful roles in deciding public policy. We analyze how different socioeconomic and built environment factors are related to the transport poverty environment for car and public transport in terms of strength, significance, and direction for...

The built environment contributes in a large extend to the global greenhouse gas emissions. With a growing demand for new buildings another view on building products is required. This thesis focusses on creating a biobased sound absorbing panel made from a mycelium bound biomaterial derived from urban waste. The production method for this panel...

Currently, the energy transition is a topic for discussion and many organizations are taking measures to reduce the effects of climate change. Armed forces are exempt of these new regulations on the grounds of national security, but some have already started taking steps to reduce the amount of harmful emissions. Due to the high efficiency and...

Recent research in bio-inspired artificial intelligence potentially provides solutions to the challenging problem of designing fault-tolerant and robust flight control systems. The current work proposes SERL, a novel Safety-informed Evolutionary Reinforcement Learning algorithm, which combines Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) and neuro...

Indoor positioning systems cannot rely on conventional localization methods, such as GPS, to locate devices because of interference with the structure of buildings. One solution is to use magnetic positioning, which is based on spatial variations in the patterns of the ambient magnetic field. To model magnetic fields, Gaussian process regression...
