The latest stage in treating Municipal Solid Waste Landfills is the aftercare of these waste sites. An important issue, concerning the aftercare of landfills, is the reduction of long term emission potentials. The research in this field, which has been carried out the last couple of decades, has lead to different concepts for describing the...

Besides wastewater and rainwater, the sewers in the Netherlands also transport a lot of water that is not supposed to be in the sewer. This water is called extraneous water and is the result of unwanted discharges in the sewer system. This could be groundwater infiltrating leaky sewer pipes, or pumped from construction sites directly into the...

There are still important knowledge gaps regarding stability and safety of bicycle riding. Every year around 60,000 people need hospital treatment for single sided accidents in the Netherlands alone. Supporting the need for understanding lateral bicycle dynamics. One of the prominent disturbances on lateral bicycle and rider behaviour is...

Models are an important tool for decision making. However, in order to get proper results, these models must be validated and only be used in situations where the conditions of the validation apply. Blind trust on a model can lead to unexpected and inaccurate results. Advancements can be made to reduce the number of situations where this occurs....

During gas production offshore, also water is produced. There are gas numbers available per well, but the water production is only known for several wells together. This thesis tries to model the water production per well based on the available data. This is done through a least-squares method. The report shows that it is very difficult to find...

Global turmoil concerning fossil fuels, questions relating to sustainable sources of energy and difficulties with sharing knowledge led to the creation of the Energy Transition Model (ETM) in the start of 2008. The ETM aims to be a transparent, comprehensive, fact-based, and independent model about energy related matters, ranging from CO2...

Rotterdam is known as a creative city, and successful projects as the van Nelle factory, the Maassilos and the Groothandelsgebouw are there to prove this. The city is rightfully proud of this reputation. But unfortunately, these centers for creative business are not so visible in the city itself. The Creative Connection uses the program of the...

Bed degradation in a number of Dutch river branches, like the Bovenrijn, can cause various problems in the near future. At low waters the navigation depth at the non-erodible layer near Emmerich can become too small. Other problems could be lower ground water levels and stability of structures in and near the river, like groynes. To diminish...

Today, timber structures are receiving attention more and more. Because of the increasing interest in sustainable construction as well as for other reasons, building industry in Europe is (re)-discovering multi-storey timber structures for construction of mid-rise buildings. In this master’s thesis, an analytical calculation method and modelling...

Fashion (typically seen as specific and subject to seasonal cycles) is commonly opposed to architecture (being both generic and permanent), forming a dichotomy that has intrigued both disciplines for centuries. It is also within this tension that the idea of the model offers a point of synthesis—from the French architect Jean-Nicolas-Louis...

This thesis presents a case study in modeling and verifying a POSIX-like file store for Flash memory. This work fits in the context of Hoare’s verification challenge and, in particular, Joshi and Holzmann’s mini-challenge to build a verifiable file store. I have designed a simple file store and implemented it in the form of a Promela model. This...

This study presents a consistent anatomical dataset, containing the musculoskeletal geometry (muscle attachment sites, fibre length, tendon length, bony landmarks) and muscle contraction parameters (physiological cross sectional area, optimal fibre length) of the complete neck musculature. A dissection experiment was performed on the left side...

The Master’s programme Industrial Ecology is jointly organised by Leiden University and Delft University of Technology. Sustainable development is a young, developing field in which many standards, certificates, and initiatives are spawning. Companies are expected to work on sustainable development by its customers, investors, and society in...

This report describes two methods to analyse the effect of sloshing on ship motions. The first method applies linear potential theory on both the barge and the internal tanks. For the barge the radiation, diffraction and incoming wave potentials are solved. For the internal tanks only the radiation potential is calculated, as there are obviously...

An urban area development can be a long and on?going process. Reasons for this are for example de size of the project, the amount of involved parties, the interest (financially) and the opportunities. To keep the process going a couple of tools can be used. An important tool is meeting and negotiating. Just putting conflicting parties’ together...

A quantitative study about eco cities, resulting in a vision of future sustainable urban development after a hypothetical energy revolution. The project regards remaining problems after the energy problem is solved. Sustainability means sustainable economy. A new assesment method is introduced based on a quantification of resource requirements....

The urban area is complex. It consists of buildings, roads, green areas and surface water. The subsurface is just as complex. Interaction between groundwater and drainage, seepage from deeper groundwater aquifers and interaction with surface water make it difficult to determine what is happening. The urban area is also sensitive to damages, both...

Maintenance dredging, as a result of port and channel sedimentation, can have a large share in overall maintenance costs of a port. A smart design can minimize the amount of maintenance dredging and thus improve the profitability of a port but also the long-term sustainability. As the preliminary design stages are often decisive for the final...
