Vietnam is one of the five countries that is severely affected by the consequences of climate change. The extreme weather conditions and the increase of the sea level results in floods in the Mekong Delta, located in the South of Vietnam. Can Tho city, found in the heart of the Mekong Delta, is one of the cities that copes with water related...

Erosion of the cliffs at the Point Grey Peninsula threatens important infrastructure and buildings at UBC. In order to tackle this problem, UBC launched a comprehensive project called Living Breakwaters. This project is part of Living Breakwaters and aims to act as a transversal element among different expertise, integrating these...

According to themselves, Argentinians are living with their backs towards the sea. In order to turn this around, a feasability study has been done to find out how a network of marinas along the coast of the province would look like, based on a MCDA including all urban areas along the coast and a fleet analysis. A final network has been proposed...

This study is part of a project titled: “Phenolic compounds degradation in AnMBR under mesophilic and thermophilic operation: BioXtreme-following up”.
Phenol is a toxic contaminant found widely in industrial effluents. It is toxic to humans and animals even at very low concentrations. Anaerobic digestion uses phenol as a carbon source and...

The Meuse river basin covers an area of 33,000 km2, touches five countries and is a major communication route in Europe. It is one of the catchments with longest streamflow records, with daily measures of discharge dating back to the beginning of the previous century. Attempts to model streamflow with standard hydrological models revealed that...

A methodology for an assessment of resiliency of a transportation system threatened by a disaster has been evaluated as to whether it is applicable in small coastal communities at risk of tsunamis. A case study was carried out in Otsuchi town in Japan. The result shows that, although the methodology is well-designed to apply in different cities...

In this report, an overview of the most common recycling methods for composite materials is created. It describes the process and recyclate characteristics, as well as the (dis)advantages of each method and the environmental and technological development. To draw conclusions on the current feasibility of composite recycling, the gathered data is...

In this additional thesis a 2D urban flood model in the downtown area of Shanghai was investigated. Therefore a numerical model of Delft3D flexible mesh (DFM) was used. Since the model was investigated from scratch, a lot of data analysis and pre-processing was required to have reasonable input data. As input data a surface elevation map, a map...

Recently, the use of atomic layer deposition (ALD) technique for depositing thin films of metal oxides on membrane substrates has proved to be an effective way to fabricate commercially available UF or NF membranes to get tight UF/NF ceramic membranes. The main advantage of this technique is controlled deposition of a monolayer of metal oxides....

Water use has increased with double the rate of population growth in the twentieth century. Combined with changing diets due to increased global economic wealth, almost 50 per cent more food needs to be produced to meet demand, implying that fresh water availability will face even greater stress. At the same time, climate change is predicted to...

In the present research, the activation parameterization method introduced by Nenes and Seinfeld (2003) was compared and evaluated to a remote sensing-based method by Rusli, Donovan & Russchenberg (2017) for determining the cloud drop number concentration. Both methods have fundamentally different approaches for indirectly determining the...

The port authority of the Port of Talcahuano has the desire to expand the port. The goal of the expansion is to increase the berth space and attract more vessels, thus increasing their throughput. This report is an advise to the port authority on the possibilities of expanding. Four preliminary port designs aremadewith the requirement of the...

At Isle of Palms there is a lot of erosion due to shoal bypassing events. Five TU Delft Hydraulic Engineering students went to the island under supervision of Coastal Science and Engineering. The main scope of the report is to create a thorough understanding of the processes that form, transform and propagate the shoals that cause catastrophic...

In the mining industry, sampling is an essential feature for the characterization of the material when all available material cannot be examined and only a small fraction of the total is evaluated. This study addresses how the minimum number of samples required to obtain a statistically accurate answer. This is important since less sample...

As of yet, there is no consensus on the role of the cloud radiative effect (CRE) on the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS). This study focuses on the seasonal and temporal variability of the CRE, to better understand the response of the firn. To do so, we combine satellite observations, climate-model output, and a snow model. We separate short-term and...

This paper analysis the effects of soil moisture and vegetation water content (VWC) on total backscattering (σ_tot^0) simulated by water cloud model (WCM) throughout a growth cycle of maize at different frequencies, polarization modes, and incidence angles. Firstly, the bare soil backscatter (σ_soil^0) was simulated by Integral Equation Method ...

Shell is a popular form of structures as it can withstand relative large load with small thickness, which satisfies the aesthetic preference. Due to the curvatures of shell structures, shell can carry the distributed load as membrane forces instead of bending moments. Due to the small thickness, shell structures are highly sensitive to...

The presence of Arsenic in the groundwater, and eventually in the drinking water is a serious problem in many of the Asian countries. Due to it high toxicity to its removal is very essential. There are many removal technologies for the removal of arsenic such as adsorption, coagulation-filtration, membrane filtration, ion exchange and...
