Regulation of adhesion is a ubiquitous feature of living cells, observed during processes such as motility, antigen recognition, or rigidity sensing. At the molecular scale, a myriad of mechanisms are necessary to recruit and activate the essential proteins, whereas at the cellular scale, efficient regulation of adhesion relies on the cell's...

In a context of many studies addressing delamination growth in laminated composites, this thesis provides understanding of the underlying physics of this phenomenon. The models currently used to assess delamination growth are phenomenological in nature and rely almost solely on curve fittings and experimental data. These empirical models are...

On the campus of Delft University the Glass and Transparency Research Group is preparing to build a pedestrian bridge as a low arch consisting of dry-stacked glass blocks. As temporary support for the arch, a lens-shaped truss has been constructed and placed on location. This truss has been fitted with as many glass components as was...

This book aims at the landscape architecture of the contemporary enclosed garden as an expression of the genius loci, addressing the question of how the genius loci can be made accessible in the metropolitan landscape. If a garden - the classical means of expressing the landscape - is capable of expressing metropolitan conditions, then we may...

Self-assembly of amphiphilic block copolymers in aqueous solution provides a versatile tool to create complex and functional micelles with various nanostructures, such as spherical, cylindrical and bilayer structures. As an important class in these structures, nanofibrillar micelles have attracted growing interest due to their unique properties...

Stability is the key property of functional materials. In this work we investigate computationally the degradative potential of a model Mn-BTC (BTC = benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxylate) metal–organic framework (MOF) building block in aqueous solutions under oxidative conditions. Model density functional theory calculations have shown that the direct...

Josephson junctions (JJ) are a fundamental component of microwave quantum circuits, such as tunable cavities, qubits, and parametric amplifiers. Recently developed encapsulated graphene JJs, with supercurrents extending over micron distance scales, have exciting potential applications as a new building block for quantum circuits. Despite this...

Proteins are major building blocks of life. The protein content of a cell and an organism provides key information for the understanding of biological processes and disease. Despite the importance of protein analysis, only a handful of techniques are available to determine protein sequences, and these methods face limitations, for example,...

Paper is a fascinating material that we encounter every day in different variants: tissues, paper towels, packaging material, wall paper or even fillers of doors. Despite radical changes in production technology, the material, which has been known to mankind for almost two thousand years, still has a natural composition, being made up of fibres...

Fillers, such as limestone or quartz powder, are used as a replacement of Portland cement. Their application can make concrete more environment friendly and possibly cheaper. Additions of limestone or quartz powder have been reported to exert a limited chemical effect on cement hydration. The main quasi-chemical effect of added limestone and...

The physical impact of the increasing building mass in industrial and developing parts of the world is undeniable. In Europe, the building industry accounts for 38 percent of the total waste production, 40 percent of the CO2 emissions and 50 percent of all natural resources used within the building sector. (EIB 2015) Such negative impact of the...

The Nile river traverses eleven countries in Africa. It is the source of life for millions of people and its aquifers, tributaries, lakes, and surface waters provide valuable nature (wetlands), drinking water, hydropower and it provides large areas of arid soils with irrigation water. Rapid urbanization, overexploitation and the construction of...

European shipyards specialize in building complex ship types including offshore vessels, yachts, dredgers, and cruise ships. One key difference between these ships and the simple cargo ships typically built in the Far East is the amount and variety of mission-related equipment required to operate the ships. Technical spaces of complex ships are...

The Martenahuis in Franeker contains a special room whose walls and ceiling are decorated with vast paintings on canvas. Such fully painted rooms were very popular in the northern Dutch provinces from the last quarter of the seventeenth century and were called 'painted rooms' or 'rooms in the round'. Owing to later additions and alterations,...

In the present time of sea-level rise and climate change a global shift has occurred toward sandy coastal protection measures and Building with Nature. These type of protection measures impose extra uncertainty on the instantaneous state of the coastal system over time for which present deterministic forecasting techniques are not capable of...
