Engineering education has recognised that engineering graduates require transversal competencies like communication, teamwork and problem-solving alongside technical competencies. The importance of transversal competencies has grown and curriculum elements have been implemented to stimulate these competencies. However, a gap still exists between...

The hydrodynamic breakup of small inertial aggregates in homogenous and isotropic turbulence is studied through numerical simulations. Small inertial aggregates are subject to shear stress caused by the local velocity gradient and drag stress caused by the relative velocity of the aggregate and the fluid flow. In our simulations, we follow...

In porous media, a stratification of a given solution on top of another miscible solution can be buoyantly unstable because of an unstable density stratification or because of differential diffusive effects. The former is the well known Rayleigh–Taylor (RT) mechanism wherein the interface is destabilized by the denser solution overlying a less...

In linearly stable shear flows like pipe and plane Couette flows, the transition from the laminar to the turbulent regime occurs abruptly. To better understand this transition, the time evolution of turbulent patches, created by controlled finite amplitude perturbations, have been studied in the literature. These studies mostly focused on pipe flows...

Design competitions are often used to select design teams for high profile development projects, yet have received scant attention in the literature. Seeking to redress this imbalance, this paper presents a competition model that was employed on Toronto’s waterfront in 2006 for a large public realm project and describes how it was structured...

Commonly coatings are used to protect metals from corrosion. Different types of coatings are available and according to their characteristics they provide different levels of protection. In order to evaluate the performance of the coating, it is fundamental to have a methodology that is reliable and efficient even when applied to different kinds...

Encapsulation of reactive agents embedded within a matrix is the most studied concept to develop self-healing materials. The most common approaches employ either a single component with catalyst dispersed in the matrix or a single environment-reactive component for corrosion protection [1]. Recently an approach for corrosion protection based on...

This study examines opportunities for the emergence of SME networks regarding highly energy-efficient housing, as well as the barriers they face. A theoretical innovation diffusion model is developed from the point-of-view of social and environmental entrepreneurship and sustainable consumption. The qualitative analysis reflects key elements...

This paper discusses the abilities of two different low-Reynolds-number eddy-viscosity models in resolving the complex physical features that arises in turbulent flows around a square cylinder at Re=22000. For the modeling of turbulence, the Launder & Sharma (LS) [1] and Kawamura & Kawashima (KK) [2] low-Re models have been employed. The present...

Numerical methods for solving non-linear systems of hyperbolic conservation laws via finite volume methods or discontinuous Galerkin finite element methods require, as the building block, a monotone numerical flux. The simplest approach for providing a monotone numerical utilizes a symmetric stencil and does not explicitly make use of wave...

Regular dyke assessment is part of reducing the risk of flooding in the Netherlands. 18 000 km of dykes are assessed at regular intervals, of which 14 000 km are classified as regional dykes and their main aim is to defend polders from inundating. The methods of assessing regional dykes are strongly inter-twined with the methods of assessing...

Incidents of sexual harassment are unequally distributed in the Greater Cairo Region because cities, generally speaking, have uneven patterns of movement and activity with higher rates of pedestrian and vehicular movement and activities in some quarters than others. Central areas usually have concentrations of people and activity, hence higher...

This paper assesses the impacts of a CO2-differentiated tax policy designed to influence car purchasing trends towards lower CO2 emitting vehicles in the Netherlands. Since 2009, gasoline and diesel cars up to 110 and 95 gram CO2 per km are exempted from the vehicle registration tax (VRT). In addition, in 2010 a first step was implemented to...
