Amsterdam and many other cities consist of a network of old quay walls, which sometimes have been constructed over a century ago. A large uncertainty exists concerning the current safety of these quay walls and their remaining service lifetime. In the current framework for the assessment of old urban quay walls, the influence of timber creep in...

Pre-piling templates are often used in the offshore industry to ensure the vertical installation of foundation piles for jacket structures. Boskalis is currently preparing a project that uses these templates in the Taiwan Strait, which is a region known for its relatively soft soils and seismic activity. Consequently, the piles are very long in...

In the Netherlands, dikes are the most commonly used structures to retain water and provide safety against flooding. In order to ensure the safety of these dikes against a number of different failure mechanisms such as backwards erosion piping, wave overtopping and macro stability, a detailed safety assessment has been created. The focus of this...

Silicon heterojunction solar cells employing transition metal oxides as carrier selective contact are of particular interest due to the potential of reducing parasitic absorption while featuring optimal electrical properties. Recently, a record efficiency of 23.5% was achieved by employing molybdenum oxide (MoOx) as carrier selective contact....

On a global scale, the present-day demand of coastal protections, port expansions and construction of artificial islands, rises. To be able to accommodate for all these environmental changes, complex dredging operations have to be performed. Depending on the type of soil and in-situ conditions, a suitable excavation and transportation method has...

In this thesis a parametric finite element model has been developed to predict the printability of concrete structures of arbitrary geometries. The model can be used to effectively explore design and process parameters to optimize printed objects. In addition, the model can be used to improve the reliability of the printing process, reduce the...

Nature-based solutions for water-resource challenges require advances in the science of ecohydrology. Current understanding is limited by a shortage of observations and theories that can further our capability to synthesize complex processes across scales ranging from submillimetres to tens of kilometres. Recent developments in environmental...

The development in computational simulation techniques has brought significant progress in the realization of computational alloy design. The advantages are most significant when developing novel materials of which the research & development cycles are particularly time and energy (and hence cost) consuming, such as high-temperature alloys....

As a result of the unabated growth in plastic usage worldwide, their abundance in the marine environment has steadily increased over the last few decades. Nowadays, plastic litter is observed across all oceans and shores. Due to their wide spread and adverse effects on ecology, economy and potentially human health, plastic pollution has been...

Canal Emilio Mitre is a navigation channel that runs through the Rio de la Plata estuary in South America. It grants access to the second largest inland waterway system in South America, covering (parts of) Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia. The channel is a main bottleneck for navigation for two reasons; the channel has a...

The potential for weight reduction, ease of manufacturing and improved crashworthiness makes advanced and ultra high strength steels attractive for automotive applications. Resistance spot welding is by far the most widely used joining method in the automotive industry due to the high operating speeds, the reliability of the process and the...

The world of molecular biology is composed by a complex network of interactions that are analogous to electric circuits. They govern the functions required for life, from metabolism to locomotion. In these networks, the presence of network motifs were identified, recurring elements supposedly kept by evolution. One of them is called the...

In this thesis we examine various aspects of the output signal produced by the electrical pickup of an electric guitar. We do this by formulating a model of this output signal based on the one dimensional damped wave equation for the motion of one guitar string and (initially) a simple linear model for the output signal based on this motion....

This research project was initiated as a result of a curiosity and desire to investigate the applicability of surrogate modelling to analyse complex non-linear behaviour in aircraft structures. The study chose to focus on modelling damage in composite plates, and through a literature review, deemed that the generation of graphical outputs was a...

The project focuses on developing and implementing a 0D or 1D model for radial compressors and turbines, capable of both interpolating and extrapolating the performance maps. The proposed model will be calibrated using the data points available in the maps provided by the manufacturers to produce accurate mass flow for turbines and pressure...

The non-linear relation between Evapotranspiration (ET) and the atmospheric moisture demand in terms of vapor pressure deficit (VPD) has been widely reported. Observations point towards a diverse range of potential drivers; however, without uncovering why the identified factors are found to control diurnal ET-VPD hysteresis. Modelling efforts...

By combining the RACMO2.3 RCM output with GRACE non-tidal ocean and atmospheric pressure anomaly as well as geo-center motion corrections from 2003 to 2017, a physics-based model to estimate the vertical displacement of the Greenland surface bedrock is created. This model is able to convert the mass and pressure anomalies into vertical...
