In 2015, the global community came together in Paris and agreed on a CO2 emissions pathway to avoid a temperature anomaly of more than 2 °C above pre-industrial levels. A significant source of CO2 emissions, the main greenhouse gas causing climate change, is the tourism sector. From research published by the UNWTO (World Tourism Organisation) in...

Crowd knowledge creation plays a central role in many types of Web based information systems, ranging from community question-answering (CQA) systems (e.g. StackOverflow and Quora) to micro-task crowdsourcing systems (e.g. Amazon mTurk and CrowdFlower). In these systems, knowledge demands are generally fulfilled by means of tasks (e.g. questions...

De grondverkopen op het gebied van bouwgrondexploitatie zijn met 25,6% gestegen naar € 1,3 miljard over de eerste 9 maanden van 2017. Het resultaat van gemeentelijke grondexploita-ties is 5,6% hoger dan over dezelfde periode in 2016. Ongeveer 1/5 van de grondverkopen is bedoeld voor bedrijventerreinen. Hiervan is bijna de helft (47%) verkocht in...

A river engineer is challenged with the task of setting up an appropriate model for a certain application. The model needs to provide suitable answers to the questions asked (i.e. be effective) and needs to do this within the available time (i.e. be efficient). To set up such a model with sufficient accuracy and certainty, a modeller needs to...

Effective recycling of municipal solid waste incinerator bottom ashes (MSWI-BA) and construction and demolition wastes (CDW) has proven to be a challenge, despite the high potential for recovering valuable metals in MSWI-BA and reducing the carbon footprint of the construction industry. The fundamental problem is caused by the combined presence...

The observation of surface water bodies in all weather conditions and better knowledge about inundation patterns are important for water resource management and flood early warning. Microwave radiometers at 37 GHz were applied to observe and study the inundation pattern in large subtropical floodplains in China, i.e. the Poyang Lake and Dongting...

This research entails the numerical simulation of physical flow instabilities that can occur in two-phase pipe flows with a new efficient algorithm. The fluids are assumed to be immiscible, and the flow is incompressible and isothermal in a straight circular pipe section with a certain inclination. The numerical algorithm that was developed...

In the past decades, diversity has become a popular catchphrase in theoretical, policy and public discourses in Canadian cities.

This study seeks to add to our understanding of urban diversity, as perceived and experienced by those who inhabit, frequent and govern urban areas. The study further makes use of a variety of qualitative and...

This paper studies the technology battle for biomass conversion in the Netherlands. Three types of technologies are currently fighting the battle for standard dominance: combustion, pyrolysis, and gasification. Twelve relevant factors for standard dominance were found: ‘financial strength’, ‘operational supremacy’, ‘learning orientation’, ...

We report the development of an intrinsic healing glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) composite based on a disulphide-containing organic-inorganic thermoset matrix. Thermomechanical experiments showed that the newly developed matrix has a combination of a Young's modulus value in the range of (800–1200 MPa), the ability to multiple...

Bayesian Networks (BNs) are an increasingly popular modelling technique in cyber security especially due to their capability to overcome data limitations. This is also instantiated by the growth of BN models development in cyber security. However, a comprehensive comparison and analysis of these models is missing. In this paper, we conduct a...

The effect of Cr on the oxidation of Fe–Mn-based steels during isothermal annealing at different dew points was investigated. The Fe–Mn–Cr–(Si) phase diagrams for oxidizing environments were computed to predict the oxide phases. Various Fe–Mn steels with different concentrations of Cr and Si were annealed at 950 °C in a gas mixture of Ar or N...

Nitrogenoxides (NOx, including NO and NOx) are a group of hazardous, toxic and harmfulgasses, which have an adverse effect on both environment and human health,e.g., acid rain, photochemical smog, and affecting the human respiratorysystem. The NOx concentration in most of the EUcities exceeds the EU annual limit value (40 μg/m3). Around40% of...

Every cell deals with the challenge of organising its DNA. First, the DNA needs to be compacted in size by several orders of magnitude. For example, in each human cell, 2 meters of DNA need to fit inside a micron-sized cell nucleus. Second, the DNA needs to stay accessible for cellular processes such as transcription and replication. To achieve...

A quantumnetwork would allow the distribution of a quantum state over many spatially separated quantum nodes which individually possess the ability to generate, process and store quantum information. Connecting these nodes through quantum communication channels would enable sending quantum information over arbitrarily long distances, secret key...

Molecular devices are planned as alternative solutions for heat dissipation problems and reliable fabrication of nano-scale devices. However, it also opens up possibilities of combining many other degrees of freedom into functional device design. While they introduce interesting opportunities for study, they also demand a versatile, scalable...

Met de opkomst van in-carsystemen kunnen er steeds meer functies van wegkantsystemen in de auto ebracht worden. Tenminste, dat is momenteel de verwachting en ook dat dus in de nabije toekomst eel wegkantsystemen gedeeltelijk of geheel overbodig worden. En dat is begrijpelijk, ook omdat er
hoge kosten gemoeid zijn met wegkantsystemen. Daarom...

Anaerobic digester (AD) microbiomes harbor complex, interacting microbial populations to achieve biomass reduction and biogas production, however how they are influenced by operating conditions and feed sludge microorganisms remain unclear. These were addressed by analyzing the microbial communities of 90 full-scale digesters at 51 municipal...

Car sharing services gain momentum as a potential alternative to various modes of transportation, including privately owned cars. This trend goes hand in hand with a renewed interest in the sharing economy, which has as essential premise that product ownership is of minor relevance. Using an online experiment, this study investigates if...

Network robustness refers to as the capacity to absorb disturbances with a minimal impact on system performance. Notwithstanding, network robustness assessment has been mostly confined to the analysis of complete link breakdown based on topological metrics. We propose reliability indicators that encompass changes in network performance with...
