Het doel van dit artikel is om – op basis van grote en representatieve databestanden – de trends, de internationale verschillen, de determinanten en de risicogroepen rond burnout, alsmede de samenhang met verzuim en arbeidsongeschiktheid, in kaart te brengen. De Nederlandse databestanden zijn van CBS, UWV en TNO. De internationale data zijn...

The paper addresses intelligent sensor networks (ISNs) as a special version of networked wireless robotics. The success of these networks is partly explained by the technical advances, but as well by cutting down costs of these networks. Using a functional breakdown of intelligent ISNs, the trends of the various functions are discussed. The...

The causes of renewed growth in the atmospheric CH4 burden since 2007 are still poorly understood and subject of intensive scientific discussion. We present a reanalysis of global CH4 emissions during the 2000s, based on the TM5-4DVAR inverse modeling system. The model is optimized using high-accuracy surface observations from NOAA ESRL's global...

Electrochemical current and potential noise signals in many cases exhibit a DC drift that should be removed prior to further data analysis. The theoretical ability of wavelet analysis and empirical mode decomposition to effectively remove only the DC drift component is evaluated based on their mutual performance for the first time. The...

The assessment of the structural safety of existing bridges and viaducts becomes increasingly important in many countries. Within the actions applied to the bridges, the traffic load is, in general, the most significant variable action to be considered when the ultimate limit states are under investigation. Over the last years a considerable...

A health impact assessment (HIA) of PM10 and elemental carbon (EC) was performed for the period 1985-2008 in the city of Rotterdam. The spatial distribution of the concentrations was modeled by the URBIS model. The modeling results for 2008 were validated by PM10 and EC measurements at various locations in Rotterdam. This paper describes the HIA...

Aim: To evaluate 10-year quality assurance of newborn hearing screening (NHS) in Dutch neonatal intensive care units (NICU). Methods: Results of the two-stage automated auditory brainstem response (AABR) screening and diagnostic examination in NICU graduates were centrally registered between October 1998 and December 2008. This registration...

Two major trends can be identified for powertrain control in the next decade. The legislation will more and more focus on in-use emissions. Together with the global trend to reduce the CO 2 emissions, this will lead to an integral drive train approach. To develop and validate this integral drive train approach, the need for a new chapter in...

Recent trends in small-scale (~1 dm<sup>3</sup>) satellites motivate the further development of microscale propulsion subsystems. In the present paper, we focus on flow dynamics simulations of conical convergent-divergent micronozzles and on the increased importance of wall effects due to the decrease in the characteristic length of such small...

Incidence rates of physical violence in Europe have increased in the past decade, but little is known about the causes. It has been suggested that the growth of the service sector (leading to more interactions with clients) and the intensification of work (more time pressure, less control, more use of information technology) could be partly...

The annual air quality standard of NO2 is often exceeded in urban areas near heavy traffic locations. Despite significant decrease of NOx emissions in 1986-2005 in the industrial and harbour area near Rotterdam, NO2 concentrations at the urban background remain at the same level since the end of the nineties. Trend analysis of monitoring data...

Het is moeilijk om te bepalen hoe de sociale economie er over tien jaar uit zal zien. De toekomst wordt beïnvloed door trends en ontwikkelingen, waarvan de eerste signalen nu al waar te nemen zijn. Het doorradicaliseren van trends en ontwikkelingen levert scenario's op in de vorm van kwalitatieve verhalen. Scenario's zijn geen voorspelling, maar...
