This research focuses on the unofficial neighbourhoods on the boarders of South African Cities. The informal settlements are quickly built by unskilled hands on foreign land without any form of planning, supervision or legislation. The self-constructed houses lack of daylight, ventilation and water tightness. This results in poor, unsafe and...

In this thesis the equilibrium cross-sectional areas of a tidal inlet are investigated. The most common used methods to study cross-sectional stability are the Escoffier method (Escoffier, 1940) and the Modified Escoffier method (Van de Kreeke, 2004). The Escoffier methods are mainly empirical and lack physical justification. Therefore, in this...

In the Netherlands, a new assessment method for the required safety level of primary flood defences is introduced in the Water Act. It is estimated that currently roughly 1900 kilometres of flood protection does not meet the safety requirements for the future (Jonkman, Jorissen, Schweckendieck & Van den Bos, 2017). Past flood defence...

In April 2018, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) agreed upon the target to reduce the CO2 emissions from international shipping in 2050 by 50 percent with respect to 2008 levels. The strategy to reach this target consists of the ambition to reduce CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across...

The XblocPlus is a new type of single layer armour unit for breakwaters. The key difference between earlier single layer armour units is that the unit is not only placed in a regular grid, but also with a regular orientation. The main benefit of this is that it can directly be seen whether the unit is placed correctly. Additionally,...

Lifting an object by capillary forces is mostly done with a single liquid bridge which connects the target object to a probe. In this work the potential of capillary forces for soft-tissue manipulation is investigated; not only a single liquid bridge is used, but multiple bridges as well since capillary forces can be enhanced by contact...

All around the world floods are a growing problem. Dealing with high water levels in residential areas is of great importance. The delta area of Macabebe, in the Manila Bay, has to cope with daily flooding, caused by the river and the sea. Groundwater is pumped and used for local industry, causing land subsidence and worsening the problems....

Valdivia is a Chilean city located near an estuary system, 800 km south of Santiago. The navigation capacity of the Valdivia river mainly determines the present state and future possibilities for the welfare of the city. Since sedimentation problems arose in the river, the capacity for navigation became limited. The ministry of Valdivia...

In Sri Lanka, the government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam waged a civil war between 1983 and 2009. During this period the social and economic development in the north and east of the country was disrupted. Due to this disruption a development opportunity for this region is the expansion of the fishery industry. In 2016, the Sri...

Coastal erosion in Myanmar causes the coastline to retreat, which increases the flood risk for those who live near the coast. Lack of data about the coastline retreat makes it difficult to design proper flood protection measurements (UNFCC 2007). Since Myanmar is a relative poor country traditional measuring techniques, such as laser mapping,...

Existing mathematical models for aerobic granular sludge have focused solely on lab-scale reactors. In this study, an effort was made to adapt these models to simulate the processes of full-scale installations. The model is the first aerobic granular sludge model to use transient radial diffusion and multiple granule fractions. Aerobic and...

In order to accurately predict passing vessel interaction forces, different simulation tools have been developed over the years. Many of these are based on a double body flow approach. MARIN (a hydrodynamic research institute located in the Netherlands) developed a simulation tool called the FlowInteraction (FI) module, which is part of the...

A FEM-based tool was developed for optimization of the geometry of an adhesive joint for implementation in a composite micro truss structure. A genetic algorithm was employed to optimize the adhesive fillet and adherend local end geometry towards a uniform state of strain in the adhesive layer. It was found that the peak maximum principal strain...
