Soft polymeric gels are susceptible to buckling-induced instabilities due to their great compliance to surface deformations. The instability patterns at soft interfaces have great potential in engineering functional materials with unique surface properties. In this work, we systematically investigated how swelling-induced instability patterns...

Progressive deterioration is a problem that affects road infrastructure, especially bridges. This requires the development of methods to determine its influence on structural behavior, one of them being load testing. Within load testing, finite element analysis (FEA) models are used as part of the preparation process. This study focused on the...

We explore and develop a Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD)-based deflation method for the solution of ill-conditioned linear systems, appearing in simulations of two-phase flow through highly heterogeneous porous media. We accelerate the convergence of a Preconditioned Conjugate Gradient (PCG) method achieving speed-ups of factors up to...

Whenever a region - especially the coastal area - is affected by flood risk, it is essential for residential and life protection to gain knowledge about the mechanisms leading to the collapse of houses. There are empirical mortality functions to predict the mortality of population in the Netherlands directly affected by flooding, but due to...

Accelerating the recovery of marine coastal ecosystems is a global challenge that has been attempted on many systems around the world. Restoration efforts have shown varying levels of success at localized-scales, but developing techniques for large-scale application are still in their nascent stage for many systems. For seagrass meadows and...

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...

This paper presents an experimental study on the development of material properties over time (up to around 2 years) and the structural behavior of reinforced beams, for two types of alkali-activated concrete (AAC). Compressive strength, flexural strength, tensile splitting strength, elastic modulus, and flexural behavior of reinforced beams...

An enhanced-oil-recovery (EOR) pilot test has multiple goals, among them to be profitable (if possible), demonstrate oil recovery, verify the properties of the EOR agent in situ, and provide the information needed for scaleup to an economical process. Given the complexity of EOR processes and the inherent uncertainty in the reservoir...

The applicability of glass in structures is continuously ascending, as the transparency and high compressive strength of the material render it the optimum choice for realizing diaphanous structural components that allow for light transmittance and space continuity. The fabrication boundaries of the material are constantly stretching: visible...

Accurate field-scale simulations of foam enhanced oil recovery are challenging, due to the sharp transition between gas and foam. Hence, unpredictable numerical and physical behavior is often observed, casting doubt on the validity of the simulation results. In this paper, a thorough stability analysis of the foam model is presented to validate...

Over the past decade, a steep increase in the number of seismic events has been observed in the Groningen gas field, the Netherlands. It is generally accepted that these are induced by compaction of the reservoir rock due to extensive depletion, causing a buildup of strain energy in faults that may be released seismically. We address the...

Over the past decade, a steep increase in the number of seismic events has been observed in the Groningen gas producing region of the Northern Netherlands. It is generally accepted that these are induced by compaction of the reservoir rock due to extensive field depletion, causing a buildup of strain energy which may be released seismically when...

XBeach is a process-based morphological model that has been used for modelling short term behaviour of beaches and dunes. In the past years interest has been shown by researchers and engineers to use XBeach for longer simulation periods (multiple years). XBeach has multiple modules: stationary mode is often used during calm conditions and...

Coastline regression is a significant threat to many coastal zones. Being able to mitigate the erosion while simultaneously improving nature development is something that is increasingly strived for in coastal projects. This report utilizes the building with nature philosophy to explore integrated solutions for a coastal erosion problem in...

For the fatigue assessment of welded structures, several design methods are described by the design codes of IIW, Eurocode3 and DNV. The relation between the stress range and cycles to failures were derived from experiments: the SN curves. With the increased accessibility of finite element software to engineers, a more flexible approach emerged:...

The Netherlands is a country where people have to live with water, rather than fighting against it. This philosophy often requires interaction between infrastructure and waterways, where (hydraulic) structures are placed close to or even extending in the waterway, introducing the risk of ship collision. What makes this accidental load so...
