The orientation distribution and rotations of anisotropic particles in turbulent flows play a key role in many applications ranging from icy clouds to papermaking and drag reduction in pipe flow. However, experimental access to time-resolved orientations of anisotropic particles has not been easy to achieve. The use of 3D printing opens up the...

To combat climate change, different types of initiatives and policy instruments are required to support the development and dissemination of new energy efficient technologies. What type of policy instruments shall be used is, however, not pre-determined. To advance knowledge in how to design successful policy instruments, evaluations and deep...

The triple bottom line approach, focusing on "People Planet Profit" is based on environmental,economic and social criteria. To ascertain the sustainability of biomass utilisation, these aspects must be considered to overcome or minimise the problems. Then quantitative measures are needed for assessing impacts from environment, economic and...

Local and national Governments must deliver the public facilities that citizens need and, at the same time, select private firms that are able to build these facilities according to the best possible compromise between available resources (money, time...) and the quality of the required work/service. Consequently, multi-criteria evaluation...

The paper will argue that the meaning and definition of private renting varies from country to country and this presents a series of challenges for comparative research. It will demonstrate a lack of equivalence between “private rented housing sectors” in Western Europe and show that this arises from variations in definitions, property rights,...

Workshop 3. Session 3.1: Privacy and public life Abstract: The auditive element is often neglected, in descriptions of environments. If sound is addressed at all, only the aspect of noisiness is considered. “Soundscapes” can offer a different view. This notion is used in several ways, many of them too limited in scope. Also because a large...

Transient's analysis is performed to determine the cavitation inception on a submerged body and flow dynamics under different working conditions. Cavitation analysis is done for a particular geometry to investigate the location and determine the critical conditions for different depths at which cavitation take place. Simulation has been done...

Crack healing in ceramic thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) may be realized by embedding Mo-Si based particles in the thermal barrier coating. Upon cracking, these particles are exposed to oxygen that permeates through the top layer and the crack gap is filled with SiO2 which is produced from oxidation at high temperature. Due to its amorphous...

In some nights, the near-surface temperature can drop dramatically and turbulence in the stably stratified boundary layer becomes very weak, such that the lfow reaches a (quasi-) laminar state. In other cases, however, the atmosphere remains in a turbulent state and temperatures stay relatively high. Recently, the appearance of two distinct...

Due to lightweight and flexibility, orthotropic steel deck bridges become popular the last decades but several problems were reported in relation to asphalt surfacing materials such as rutting, cracking, loss of bond between the surfacing system and steel deck. In the Netherlands a surfacing structure for orthotropic steel bridge decks mostly...

The UK committed in 2008 to reduce its greenhouse gas emission by 80% by 2050. The construction industry is a key contributor to the greenhouse emissions and future legislative adjustments for the built environment are well underway. The industry will face many challenges and it is expected that its profile will be very different by 2050. The...

During the last three decades high-frequency approximations or paraxial (one-way) approximations of the wave equation have been successfully used to process seismic data in two-dimensional or three-dimensional spaces. With the increase of computer power and the need to take into account complex geological structures, solutions of the exact wave...

This paper gives a survey on kernel-based scattered data interpolation methods in the context of static aeroelastic computations. We describe the general procedure, address problems and solutions for large-scale data sets, for flat data sets, and for rotational information. Finally, we demonstrate the versatility of the method by showing two...

The focused ultrasound wave attracts attention in the medical field in various applications such as High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). Amount of sound energy is generated by focused ultrasound in the body of narrow area. Present HIFU treatment cannot be applied to the part surrounded by bones, such as brain, because focal point is changed...

Papers workshops In the Netherlands, several housing associations have started offering a major part of their housing stock with a purchase option. This allows tenants of new and existing dwellings to choose between entering into a standard tenancy contract and purchasing the dwelling. Sales options often have the possibility of offering a...
