The HPLWR (High Performance Light Water Reactor) is the European version of the SCWR (Supercritical Water Reactor) and is one of the Generation IV concepts that have enhanced safety, improved efficiency and less nuclear waste compared to current nuclear reactors. A possible way to enhance the safety is by using natural convection as the driving...

De Gier, J.M. (author)
In this paper the stability properties of the vibrations of a singular degree of freedom oscillator with a periodically and multi-stepwise time-varying mass are studied. The free vibrations and the vibrations due to two types of forcing are investigated.

Wijchers, M.S. (author)
In this thesis a special kind of differential equation will be analysed, namely the delay differential equation. For test equations the stability behaviour is analysed and there's checked whether there is a method to prove stability. Also, a full description is given, for the model submitted by INCAS3.

We beschouwen Brouwers roterende lichaam, een voorbeeld van een mechanisch systeem met het volgende paradoxale gedrag; zonder demping is er stabiliteit, met demping is er sprake van instabiliteit. Met modulatie van de hoeksnelheid wordt er een model afgeleid waarbij we pogen de instabiele gevallen te stabiliseren, hierbij is het meenemen van de...

In the Westerwald area clay quarries are in production. In order to assess the stability of the slopes the geotechnical characterisation of these quarries needs to be improved. This report provides the justification for a working plan for a thorough but quick assessment of existing slopes in clay mines. Literature is consulted for the...

In this work, we present a robust and efficient multigrid solver for a reformulated version of the system of poroelasticity equations. The reformulation enables us to treat the system in a decoupled fashion. It is sufficient to choose a highly efficient multigrid method for a scalar Poisson type equation for the overall solution of this...

We propose to discretize the convective and diffusive operators in the (incom- pressible) Navier-Stokes equations in such a manner that their symmetries are preserved. The resulting spatial discretization inherits all symmetry-related conservation and stability properties from the continuous formulation. In particularly, a symmetry-preserving...

Granular filters are used for protection against scour and erosion of base material. For a proper functioning it is necessary that at the interfaces between the filter structure, the subsoil and the water flowing above the filter structure no material will be transported. Different types of granular filters can be distinguished, this paper...

We solve the three-dimensional acoustic wave equation, discretized on tetrahedral meshes. Two methods are considered: mass-lumped continuous finite elements and the symmetric interior-penalty discontinuous Galerkin method (SIP-DG). Combining the spatial discretization with the leap-frog time-stepping scheme, which is second-order accurate and...

A review will be presented of the theory behind stable and unstable coastal inlet cross-sectional behaviour. The theoretical findings behind stable coastal inlet cross-sectional behaviour will be reviewed, analysed and confronted with empirical findings, leading to some unresolved questions. Second, seasonal variations will be shown to induce...

Zwanenburg, C. (author)
Stability assessment of existing dikes build on soft soil generates questions on the available stability calculation techniques and material models. Especially peat behaviour is not easily captured by standard design methods. This has led to disapproval, based on calculations, of dikes that have been in operation for several hundreds of years....

Because of problems with the design guidelines produced by PIANC for armoured slopes under attack by bowthrusters, additional work has been done in the Netherlands. On the basis of this work computational rules have been developed. However, because of the increase of bowthruster power, more detailed knowledge is needed on the effect of a...

To satisfy the growing passenger transportation demands and improve the service quality n railway system, a more stable and robust timetable needs to be designed while considering highly utilized capacity. Acyclic timetable is extensively applied in large ailway networks. In order to acquire the quality of timetable, analytical timetable...

New vertical steel storage tanks founded on a shallow foundation of a crushed rock ring are planned at the same location of former storage tanks. The dimensions, loads and foundation of the new tanks are identical to the old tanks which were erected 40 years ago and demolished a few years ago. Despite the fact that the new tanks are identical to...

Thermal interaction of fluids and solids, or conjugate heat transfer (CHT), is encountered in many engineering applications. Since time-accurate computations of such coupled problems can be computationally expensive, we consider loosely-coupled and strongly- coupled solution algorithms in which higher order multi-stage Runge-Kutta schemes are...

The performance of railway operations depends highly on the quality of the railway timetable. In particular for dense railway networks it can be a challenge to obtain a stable robust conflict-free and energy-efficient timetable with acceptable infrastructure occupation and short travel times. This paper presents a performance-based railway...
