In the spring of 2008, Delft University of Technology wrote a report for the Second Delta Committee, a body set up to advise the Dutch government and parliament on the Netherlands’ long-term flood risk policy. The Delft report included a colourful drawing of a solution for Rotterdam and the Drecht Cities, and the Delta Committee used this image...

Already in the 19th century, d’Auria described a discharge measurement technique that applies floats to find the depth-integrated velocity (d’Auria, 1882). The basis of this technique was that the horizontal distance that the float
travels on its way to the surface is the image of the integrated velocity profile over depth. Viol and Semenov ...

Torfajökull is the largest silicic volcanic centre in Iceland lying at the intersection of the rift zone (MidAtlantic Ridge) and the transform zone that connects to Reykjanes peninsula. It erupts infrequently,with only two eruptions in the last 1200 years, the latest of which was over 5 centuries ago. Yet, itsactive tectonic setting, persistent...

In November 1934, Den Helder, The Netherlands, the start of a remarkable voyage commenced. The Hr. Ms.K-XVIII, a Dutch submarine, was about to set sail to Soerabaya, Indonesia. Onboard was a Dutch professor, Felix Andries Vening Meinesz. He was able to measure the Earth’s gravity field with similar precision as on land for the first time in...

Landslides triggered by hydraulic perturbations are initiated by a decrease in the effective stress, and hence the shear strength of the soil, as a result of the increase in pore water pressure which might occur due to either rain infiltration or exfiltration of water from the bedrock. However, several factors including the shape and hydraulic...

Investments in transport are increasingly motivated by the need to improve its resilience – the overall capability to maintain system integrity and functionality. Nonetheless, there is lack of knowledge on how to assess their impact on network resilience. This study investigates the resilience of alternative public transport networks by...

A computational model for multiple CO2 leakage mechanisms is introduced. Leakage through cap layers and abandoned wellbores are considered. For the first, leakage in a rigid heterogeneous layered medium constituting layers of different physical properties is simulated. Such a leakage exhibits a
discontinuity in the saturation field at the...

In practice, reinforced concrete structures may encounter different kinds of curing conditions
due to the weather (sun radiation, air moisture and wind), nearby external environment
(seawater, attack of stray current arising from nearby railways), or human factors (insufficient
curing period). In some extreme conditions, the...

Houses were among the first structures that were built, and remain the most common type of building today. The design of housing has been the subject of architecture, while from a psychological point of view the meaning of home has been a major subject of research. These two different viewpoints are combined in this research to provide a tool...

Theatrical art and games can mutually benefit each other. In a recent project we explored this proposition. On the one hand, we added game elements to a classical opera performance. The resulting ‘Parsifal the game’ was performed six times for altogether over 400 spectators/players. On the other hand, we investigated how user experiences in...

After the primary extraction in oil reservoirs up to 60 % of the oil remains trapped in the reservoir (Sen, 2008). Therefore, different mechanisms have been developed to get the oil out to the reservoir. One of these techniques is Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) which is a technique used to produce more oil in a secondary extraction by...
