Determination of the chloride content in a reinforced concrete structure is important for evaluation of the risk of chloride-induced corrosion of reinforcement. The traditional techniques for chloride determination in concrete are laborious, time-consuming and cannot be used for continuous monitoring of the chloride content. The investigation on...

The research presented in this thesis is part of the Rolling Stock Life Cycle Logistics applied research and development program, conducted by NedTrain. As a company, NedTrain belongs to Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS; the principal railway company in the Netherlands) and provides maintenance services for the NS train-fleet. The aim of this program...

Despite the fact that shallow tunnels have the benefits of low short-term construction costs and long-term operational costs primarily due to the shallow depth of the station boxes, the limited understanding of shallow tunnelling in soft soils is an obstacle to the development of shallow tunnels in urban areas. This study carries out a...

Thin film CIGS solar cells and individual layers within these solar cells have been tested in order to assess their long term stability. Alongside with the execution of standard tests, in which elevated temperatures and humidity levels are used, the solar cells have also been exposed to a combination of elevated temperature and humidity and...

The aim of this thesis is to design a computational method that can be used in modern stealth technology. In particular, the computational method should be capable to simulate scattering of ultra-wideband radar signals for military aircraft constructed with ferromagnetic radar absorbent materials. A full-wave boundary element method has been...

Nowadays, many modern countries are relying heavily on non-renewable resources. One common example of non-renewable resources is fossil fuel. Non-renewable resources are ?nite resources that will eventually dwindle, becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In contrast, renewable energy resources, like wind energy, are...

Marcel, C.P. (author)
The stability of natural circulation boiling water reactors is investigated with a strong emphasis on experiments. Two different facilities are used for such a task: the GENESIS facility (to which a void reactivity feedback system is artificially added) and the CIRCUS facility. In addition, numerical codes are also used in the investigation.

In the thesis two different models of solidification of aluminum alloys are presented and analyzed. The first 1--D solidification model is derived from the conservation of solute, heat and mass. With numerical experiments it is shown that simulations with the Finite Difference discretization must adhere a relation similar to the Courant...

The objective of the research was to identify and evaluate promising mathematical techniques for re-entry flight clearance. To fulfil this objective, two mathematical methods were investigated and developed: μ analysis for linear models and interval analysis for both linear and non-linear models. The stability of re-entry vehicles in the...

The shoulder joint provides us with a large range of motion. This is enabled by the shallowness of the glenoid cavity and the cooperation of many bone elements of the shoulder girdle. This results in complex biomechanics and dependency to surrounding soft tissues for its stability. Due to a fracture or joint diseases, a shoulder replacement may...

Visco-elasticity of joints is important for the maintenance of the human body posture and can in two manners be regulated. By means of cocontraction of antagonistic muscle groups and by neural reflexive feedback of muscle length and muscle strength, measured both by means of sensors in the muscles. The impact of the reflexive regulation is...
