We were commissioned to support the beach pavilions at Scheveningen in aligning themselves with the climate goals of the Haags Klimaatpact. We decided to focus on collaborative measures that they could take to make better use of energy, materials and water. We used the perspective we have developed in the last year from Industrial Ecology to...

In the past decades, great progress has been made in analyzing lateral torsional buckling of slender beams. The phenomena has been accurately described by differential equations, closed form solutions are available for specific cases and the solution for any load and any boundary condition can be obtained by finite element analysis. Timber and...

The atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration has risen from 278 parts per million (ppm) in 1750 to 390.5 ppm in 2011. This increase is caused by anthropogenic emission, predominantly fossil fuel combustion. There is sufficient capacity in the oceans to take up to 70 to 80% of this amount, however, due to the large time scale of this...

The quality of treated drinking water in the distribution network might deteriorate even though the quality of water leaving the treatment plant has been set to be at the highest level. Regrowth of microorganisms or known as microbiological instability is found to be one of the responsible causes for the change of the water quality. This...

The beach adjacent to the Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue and Education Centre is one of the many beaches worldwide suffering from coastline recession. This loss of coast has a negative impact on the environment, local society and ecology. In general, shoreline retreat is caused by sea level rise (SLR) and erosion. The main objective of this research...
