This paper reports on the corrosion performance of composite zinc layers (~ 8µm) 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...

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 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...

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...

В современных архитектурных решениях широко используется криволинейность свободных форм. Именно поэтому изогнутые элементы из сборного бетона могут быть потенциальным рын- ком для производителей. В прошлом не существовало просто- го способа для производства таких компонентов. Исследования, проводимые в докторантуре Дельфтского Технического...

The manufacturing of double-curved precast concrete elements is still expensive, due to the high costs and limited possibilities for repetitive use of the moulds or formwork. The goal of the research described in this paper is to develop a production method that overcomes these difficulties by enabling the mould to be reused many times and by...

A macroscopic framework to model heat transfer in materials and composites, subjected to physical degradation, is proposed. The framework employs the partition of unity concept and captures the change from conduction-dominated transfer in the initial continuum state to convection and radiation-dominated transfer in the damaged state. The...

This research is focused on the characterization of the mechanical behavior of unbound granular road base materials (UGMs). An extensive laboratory investigation is described, in which various methods for determination of the mechanical properties of granular materials are examined for their applicability, particularly in developing countries....

This paper discusses the long-term mechanical behaviour of timber-to-concrete joints made with dowel-type fasteners. Despite the influence that the long-term behaviour of joints has on the mechanical behaviour of a timber–concrete structure and consequently on its design, there is still a lack of research in this area. This paper presents...

A method and apparatus for separating solid particles of different densities, using a magnetic process fluid. The solid particles are thoroughly mixed in a small partial flow of the process fluid. The small turbulent partial flow is added to a large laminar partial flow of the process fluid, after which the obtained mixture of the respective...
