A methodology for an assessment of resiliency of a transportation system threatened by a disaster has been evaluated as to whether it is applicable in small coastal communities at risk of tsunamis. A case study was carried out in Otsuchi town in Japan. The result shows that, although the methodology is well-designed to apply in different cities...

In this report, an overview of the most common recycling methods for composite materials is created. It describes the process and recyclate characteristics, as well as the (dis)advantages of each method and the environmental and technological development. To draw conclusions on the current feasibility of composite recycling, the gathered data is...

In this additional thesis a 2D urban flood model in the downtown area of Shanghai was investigated. Therefore a numerical model of Delft3D flexible mesh (DFM) was used. Since the model was investigated from scratch, a lot of data analysis and pre-processing was required to have reasonable input data. As input data a surface elevation map, a map...

Recently, the use of atomic layer deposition (ALD) technique for depositing thin films of metal oxides on membrane substrates has proved to be an effective way to fabricate commercially available UF or NF membranes to get tight UF/NF ceramic membranes. The main advantage of this technique is controlled deposition of a monolayer of metal oxides....

Water use has increased with double the rate of population growth in the twentieth century. Combined with changing diets due to increased global economic wealth, almost 50 per cent more food needs to be produced to meet demand, implying that fresh water availability will face even greater stress. At the same time, climate change is predicted to...

In the present research, the activation parameterization method introduced by Nenes and Seinfeld (2003) was compared and evaluated to a remote sensing-based method by Rusli, Donovan & Russchenberg (2017) for determining the cloud drop number concentration. Both methods have fundamentally different approaches for indirectly determining the...

At Isle of Palms there is a lot of erosion due to shoal bypassing events. Five TU Delft Hydraulic Engineering students went to the island under supervision of Coastal Science and Engineering. The main scope of the report is to create a thorough understanding of the processes that form, transform and propagate the shoals that cause catastrophic...

In the mining industry, sampling is an essential feature for the characterization of the material when all available material cannot be examined and only a small fraction of the total is evaluated. This study addresses how the minimum number of samples required to obtain a statistically accurate answer. This is important since less sample...

As of yet, there is no consensus on the role of the cloud radiative effect (CRE) on the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS). This study focuses on the seasonal and temporal variability of the CRE, to better understand the response of the firn. To do so, we combine satellite observations, climate-model output, and a snow model. We separate short-term and...

This paper analysis the effects of soil moisture and vegetation water content (VWC) on total backscattering (σ_tot^0) simulated by water cloud model (WCM) throughout a growth cycle of maize at different frequencies, polarization modes, and incidence angles. Firstly, the bare soil backscatter (σ_soil^0) was simulated by Integral Equation Method ...

This study aims to look at the effect of introducing controlled amounts of oxygen on biogas quantity and quality during anaerobic digestion. The anaerobic digestion process is studied, specifically, it’s biochemical processes, to understand the effect of addition of oxygen. Anaerobic sludge is aerated to mimic DAF (Dissolved Air Flotation)...

It is generally accepted that the road safety trend of a country is influenced by many factors related to the infrastructure, vehicles, health care etc. Nevertheless, road safety improvement is also a result of a learning process, which can come at an individual and a societal level, according to the current available literature. The former is...

Shell is a popular form of structures as it can withstand relative large load with small thickness, which satisfies the aesthetic preference. Due to the curvatures of shell structures, shell can carry the distributed load as membrane forces instead of bending moments. Due to the small thickness, shell structures are highly sensitive to...

Terminos Lagoon is the biggest and ecologically most important fluvial-lagoon system of the southern Gulf of Mexico. Rivers, sea and meteorology all influence the lagoon, variable over the year, resulting in a complex situation. To protect this area, it is crucial to know how different hydrological processes, hydrodynamic processes and spatial...
