This paper reports on the corrosion performance of composite zinc layers (~ 8┬Ám) on a steel substrate, considering the influence of nano-aggregates and Cr(III) conversion layers, compared to control (only Zn layers) conditions. The main factors, influencing the corrosion performance of Zn in this study are: a) the effect of two concentrations of...

Installing lined pipe by means of the reeling installation method seems to be an attractive combination, because it provides the opportunity of eliminating the demanding welds from the critical time offshore and instead preparing them onshore. However, reeling of lined pipe is not yet proven technology. From previous research it is known that...

During this master thesis, research is done on the structural feasibility of a demountable football stadium. To avoid derelict stadiums after one-off events such as the World Cup or Olympic Games, a solution is found in the application of a demountable stadium that can be relocated once a year. The goal of the research is to present a...

Nowadays, reclaimed asphalt aggregate is often used in new asphalt mixtures. In Flanders, up to 50 % of the binder content is allowed to be originating from reclaimed asphalt. However, the effect of this aged binder on the fatigue and healing properties of the asphalt mixture is questioned. A procedure for the ageing of asphalt mixtures, mortars...

Montmorillonite (Mt) nanoclay is a layered silicate mineral with a 2:1-type layer structure, two tetrahedrals sandwiching one octahedral. In recent decades, it is successfully introduced into polymer systems to form polymer-clay nanocomposites (PCN) in which the silicate layers of the Mt are randomly and homogeneously dispersed at a molecular...

The goal of this thesis is to contribute to the understanding of the method CFD by engineers in determining wind loads on structures and ideally contribute to the development of a future design tool. The field of wind engineering is explored and wind tunnel and CFD modelling is discussed. Results determined with wind tunnel tests and CFD...

In the Netherlands, timber is rarely used as primary material in medium rise buildings. The production of these timber buildings is very small compared to the total medium rise production. Because of this, timber as a construction method is an uncommon choice for designers and contractors to make. This results in a slow growing experience with...

In recent years, various types of plate-like timber materials have been introduced to the building industry, offering a wide range of new possibilities. Due to a lack of knowledge on these possibilities, in the Netherlands, the material is not used as often as could be expected. To explore the boundaries of timber engineering, in this thesis, it...

Advantages of timber as a building material are: small dead weight, good thermal characteristics and in some cases low overall building cost. Nature has created large cantilever structures of 150 m high in the form of eucalyptus threes. History show furthermore manmade structures as timber radio towers of 190 m high and wooden religious...

In the need for more green energy a prominent role is reserved for wind energy. Offshore wind energy in deeper waters capitalises on more efficient wind properties and increased public acceptance compared to onshore wind energy and wind farms close to shore. In the coming years the offshore wind market is expected to evolve rapidly, especially...

The report contains a research on UHCP and the theory of thin shell structures. The combination of these aspects is used for a complete structural design for a dome structure with a span of 150m. The conclusion and recommendations which where found were then applied for a preliminary design for 'Fiere Terp', a architectural design for a sports...

The conventional multiscale homogenization theory, which has mainly been applied to determine constitutive laws for bulk materials, suffers from two drawbacks when applied to softening materials. Firstly, the coarse scale response is sensitive to the finite element mesh used to discretize the coarse scale domain. Secondly, increasing the size of...

Since the first high strength concrete mixtures were designed in the 1970s, a lot of research is performed. Despite the recommendations that were written, full legislative coverage of high strength concrete remained unavailable. The new Eurocodes are also valid for high strength concrete, so the question rises how high strength concrete can be...

The paper introduces a new recycling method of WEEE: Magnetic Density Separation. By using this technology, both grade and recovery rate of recycled products are over 90%. Good separations are not only observed in relatively big WEEE samples, but also in samples with smaller sizes or electrical wires.

Wind flow around buildings and structures has led to annoying noise levels at several occasions, especially in cases where tonal sound was produced. The human hearing is equipped to distinguish tonal or pulsating sound from random noise patterns, causing tonal or pulsating sound to be perceived as more annoying. Tonality is often caused by the...

Microencapsulated phase change materials (microPCMs) have been widely applied in solid matrix as thermal-storage or temperature-controlling functional composites. The thermal conductivity of these microPCMs/matrix composites is an important property need to be considered. In this study, a series of microPCMs have been fabricated using the in...
