Thick Laminates (above 6mm) are increasingly present in large composites structures such as wind turbine blades. Designs are based on static and fatigue coupon tests performed on 1-4mm thin laminates. However, a thickness effect has been observed in limited available experimental data. For this reason standard experimental data cannot...

Mainstream climate economics takes global warming seriously, but perplexingly concludes that the optimal economic policy is to almost do nothing about it. This conclusion can be traced to just a few “normative” assumptions, over which there exists fundamental disagreement amongst economists. This paper explores two axes of this disagreement. The...

Background: The current article explores the effect of design on the efficacy of
behavioural intervention technologies (BITs). With a user-centred design process,
colourful key ring coins were created as a means of introducing self-administered
behavioural interventions.

Methods: A 6-week study tested whether the tangible...

This paper discusses the dynamics of coastal policy change in Sweden, using erosion and beach nourishments as an example. The Multiple Stream Model is a theoretical model on agenda setting and policy change developed by the political scientist John Kingdon (1984, 2003). This paper applies Kingdon’s model in describing and explaining coastal...

During the first months, the 2014 outbreak of the Ebola virus (EBOV) in West Africa was characterised by inadequate intervention capacities. In this paper, we investigate (1) the influence of limited but dynamic intervention capacities and their effect on the effective reproduction number, and (2) the effects of proactive versus reactive...

This thesis explores a new measuring approach to quantify the seepage flux from boils. Boils are preferential groundwater seeps and are a consequence of the groundwater flow that works its way through the soil matrix by creating vents of higher conductive material. In the Netherlands, boils often occur in deep polders (reclaimed lakes situated 4...

Sensor networks can nowadays deliver 99.9% of their data with duty cycles below 1%. This remarkable performance is, however, dependent on some important underlying assumptions: low traffic rates, medium size densities and static nodes. In this thesis, we investigate the performance of these same resource-constrained devices, but under scenarios...

This paper presents the results from the equivalent static load method applied to gust response optimisation of an aircraft wing. Through the different optimisation runs, it is assessed that gust load cases can be critical and are difficult to constrain with the sole use of static load cases. Several cases are evaluated with different gust...

In this work, a combined experimental/numerical approach is used to investigate the effect of water ingression in glass/epoxy composite specimens. Interlaminar shear (ILS) specimens were immersed at 50◦C for multiple durations and tested. Re-dried specimens were also tested. Significant strength degradation of up to 50% was found for wet...

The fluvial river is a kind of open system that can interact with its outside environments and give response to disturbance from outside on the earth. It can adjust itself to the disturbances outside the system and reflects new characteristics in the process of reaching a new equilibrium. The TGD (Three Gorges Dam) constructed at the Yangtze...

This paper presents a new discontinuous damage model for simulating fatigue-driven delamination in composites. Fatigue models commonly describe crack growth using the Paris law which provides the link between the energy released due to delamination and the crack growth rate. A core issue in implementing the Paris law is to accurately compute the...

The performance of a mesomechanical constitutive law for composites is assessed through comparison with micromechanical model results. In this paper, results are presented for non-monotonic strain histories obtained from mesomechanical simulation of a shear dominated delamination test.

Our study aims to enhance process understanding of the long-term (decadal and longer) cyclic marsh dynamics by identifying the mechanisms that translate large-scale physical forcing in the system into vegetation change, in particular (i) the initiation of lateral erosion on an expanding marsh, and (ii) the control of seedling establishment in...

As part of the SAFElevee project Delft University of Technology collabored with Flanders Hydraulics Research, and Infram B.V. in the preperation and execution of a full scale embankment breach experiment in November 2015. This breach experiment was performed on an 3.5m high embankment with a sand core and clay outer layer situated along the...

The use of glass material for structural components has drastically increased in the last decade. Among others, a laminated connection is a type of adhesive joint that makes use of foil interlayer adhesive to transfer forces between glass and metal parts. In this work, the use of embedded laminated connections is studied as connection between...
