Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) in combination with green hydrogen (obtained from renewable sources), could make a significant contribution in decarbonizing the European transport sector, and thus help achieve the ambitious climate goals. However, most vehicles are parked for about 95% of their life time. This work proposes the more...

In this chapter, we investigate the extent to which the real-time bidirectional exchange of activity information can influence context-awareness, social presence, social connectedness, and importantly interpersonal activity synchrony in mediated ambient assisted living (AAL) environments. Additionally, we describe the design, development, and...

Direct connections between nodes usually result in efficient transmission in networks. Such electric power transmission is governed by physical laws, and an assessment purely based on direct connections between nodes and shortest paths may not capture the operation of power grids. Motivated by these facts, in this chapter, we investigate the...

1. Een Urban Consolidation Centre (UCC) maakt het mogelijk om de stad zero-emissie te beleveren en zorgt ervoor dat goederen gebundeld de stad in gaan. Met als doel het minder belasten van klimaat, gezondheid van mensen en leefbaarheid van de stad. 2. Het UCC is een multimodaal overslagpunt, geschikt voor een variëteit aan voertuigen....

With rapid industrialisation and the increase in popularity of concrete and brick constructions, a decline in earth houses has been observed especially in the rural areas of India. A survey was carried out in five regions of India to understand the technical and social factors favouring/limiting the construction and everyday use of earth houses....

The Rietveld Schröder House is not only an icon of Dutch architecture, but also a museum welcoming about 18,000 visitors each year. The unusual experimental character of the construction and the fact that the house is open to the public
can be expected to affect the indoor climate and to pose some risks for the conservation of the building...

The phenomenon of migration is a fundamental concept to evolutionary biology, population studies, and life sciences. It is almost uncontestable common knowledge that migration is an indispensable factor to propel difference and change, thus ensuring genetic variation, and ultimately evolution for all life forms. For most species migration is the...

Demand response refers to the concept that power consumption should aim to match supply, instead of supply following demand. It is a key technology to enable the successful transition to an electricity system that incorporates more and more intermittent and uncontrollable renewable energy sources. For instance, loads such as heat pumps or...

This chapter deals with the methodology for proof load testing. All aspects of proof load testing that are shared with other load testing methods have been discussed in Part II of Volume 12. In this chapter, the particularities of proof load testing are discussed. These elements include the determination of the target proof load, the procedures...

This chapter reviews concepts related to the uncertainties associated with structures and how the results of load tests can be used to reduce these uncertainties. When an existing bridge is subjected to a load test, it is known that the capacity of the cross section is at least equal to the largest load effect that was successfully resisted. As...

This chapter describes the proof load testing of viaduct Zijlweg at a position that is critical for bending moment and at a position that is critical for shear. The viaduct Zijlweg has cracking caused by alkali-silica reaction, and the effect of material degradation on the capacity is uncertain. Therefore, the assessment of this viaduct was...

This chapter discusses the aspects related to the preparation of load tests, regardless of the chosen type of load test. After determination of the test objectives, the first step should be a technical inspection of the bridge and bridge site. With this information, the preparatory calculations (assessment for existing bridges and expected...

This chapter discusses aspects that should be considered prior to every load test. The first questions that needs to be answered are “Is this bridge suitable for load testing?” and “If so, what are the goals of the load test?” To answer these questions, information must be gathered and preliminary calculations should be carried out. In order to...

This chapter discusses the aspects related to the execution of load tests regardless of the chosen type of load test. The main elements required for the execution of the load test are the equipment for applying the load and the equipment for measuring and displaying (if required) the structural responses. This chapter reviews the commonly used...

This chapter reviews the existing codes and guidelines for load testing of structures. A summary of the main requirements of each existing code is provided, with a focus on the determination of the required load and measurements. The requirements for load testing of bridges and buildings are revised, for new and existing structures. An...
