Mine design and mine planning are essential to a mining operation as they do not only dictate the outline of the mine, but essentially determine the financial robustness and success of the mining operation. However, as mining is a conservative business mine design is still mostly done by hand. To indicate the effect of uncertainty in mine design...

The aim of this thesis is to investigate the feasibility of determining the preload in bolts in High Strength Friction Grip Conections and performing in situ measurements. The magnitude of the preload is important for the behavior of High Strength Friction Grip Connections, as it defines the fatigue life of the connection and limits the...

The number of terrorist attacks on public places has substantially grown over the past two decades. More than half of these attacks were bombings. Past bombing events have shown that 45% of the injuries is caused by glass breakage. . The building engineering practice could help reducing the consequences, by retrofitting glass facades to mitigate...

This thesis focuses on identifying flood-prone locations, flood vulnerability and analyzing risk for the Municipality of Rotterdam. Municipal call center data of flooding complaints from 2012-2016 are investigated to identify the most flood-prone locations, which are called hot spots. This is performed by creating heat maps of the flooding...

is thesis focuses on the behavior of the CD20 building system during an earthquake. In order to calculate the forces on the system, first a detailed model was constructed of the characteristic CD20 connection in Diana. This model was used to determine the stiffness of the connection. This stiffness was then transferred into a model of the whole...

Over one hundred scour holes are located in the Rhine-Meuse delta. These scour holes have relatively large depths and steep slopes and could pose a risk to the stability of river banks and hydraulic structures, especially since some scour holes are still growing. Scour holes develop at locations where either the hydrodynamics or the erodibility...

Cracks are commonly occurring phenomena in concrete structures. Cracks provide paths for the ingress of deleterious substances, therefore endangering the durability of the structure. When cracking gets excessive, manual maintenance and repairs are required, which are both costly and time consuming. The demand for durable structures and materials...
