<br/>Sustainability has become a paramount concern in modern research, aligning with global efforts to reduce carbon emissions and embrace circular economy principles. The mentioned imperative extends to the field of pavement engineering, where the widening of existing pavements, a common practice to accommodate increasing traffic demands,...

This research investigates the effect of window position and size on building facades on daylight entry, energy consumption, and thermal comfort of buildings. The aim is to find a feasible way to make housing more sustainable and energy efficient in compliance with the Dutch Building Regulations while providing good daylit spaces. This knowledge...

The museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam is currently closed for restoration. The architect Van der Steur made an extensive study of lighting in museum rooms (1930). This resulted in a pitched roof with glass and a layer of horizontal glass panes (legramen) that form the ceiling of the exhibition rooms. Below the glass panes timber blades ...

Transition zones in railway tracks are locations with an abrupt change in stiffness in the vertical rail supporting structure. These locations are typically located as approaches near engineering structures where there is a sudden change in track substructure. Due to these abrupt changes the dynamic forces of the wheel-rail interaction on the...

Large Eddy Simulation (LES) is a mathematical technique for performing simulations of turbulent flows, such as those found in the Earth’s atmosphere. Compared to traditional numerical weather and climate models, LES is more accurate in representing turbulent processes and cloud dynamics. The computational burden of LES, however, have histor-...

Offshore wind energy is expanding rapidly as governments aim for net-zero emissions, with monopiles and jackets being the primary foundation methods for offshore wind turbines (OWTs). Supply chains, heavier turbines and deeper waters influence the efficiency of jacket foundations. This research considers a jacket-founded OWT. The development of...

Organic micropollutants (OMPs) originate from organic chemicals such as drugs and pesticides that are widely used in human activities. OMPs are difficult to remove by conventional water treatment techniques, and hence continue to accumulate in natural water bodies. More effective methods need to be investigated for the removal of OMPs in...

The objective of the European Green Deal is to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 [1]. Due to a growing global population and increased needs for travelling on the one hand, and progressive bans of short-haul flights by the governments on the other, the need for a more...

Urban areas of coastal cities are increasingly susceptible to the consequences of climate change. In particular, the threat of increasing floods due to sea level rise and heavier rainfall is growing. Cartagena de Indias in Colombia is such a coastal city, where flooding is a significant issue, with floods becoming more frequent in recent decades...

The abstract outlines a study focusing on improving the design approach for flexible dolphins, vital marine structures used for vessel berthing and mooring. Current design methodologies, particularly those outlined in the CROW C1005 handbook (2018), are questioned due to potential conservatism stemming from insufficiently calibrated partial...

The current macrostability safety assessment for primary river dike trajectories in the Netherlands is applied to approach the failure probability of a dike during high water events. However, in the current schematization process that is described in the Wettelijk Beoordelings Instrumentarium (WBI) to assess the macrostability, aleatory and...

An investigation into the application of additive manufacturing to the production of structural joints was conducted for this thesis. The main goal was to determine all necessary aspects that someone needs to consider when designing a structural part that is intended to be printed with additive manufacturing. As an example, the branched column...

This study focuses on the infragravity (IG) waves at 5 measurement sites (Brouwershavense Gat 2 (BG2), Oosterschelde 4 (OS4), Cadzand, Hansweert and Bath) in the Scheldt region, examining their characteristics in these waters as well as to what extent they can be modelled using SWAN (Simulating WAves Nearshore). To facilitate this, data...

Flood risks and its consequences become more and more challenging and are demanding for the currently present dike systems and hydraulic structures in the Netherlands. This automatically raises the question for the possibility of adjustable temporary deployable flood defences that work autonomously. Nowadays it is more likely that a standard...

Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) is a geodetic technique that is capable of monitoring surface displacements up to millimeter-level of precision. The end products from conventional InSAR processing are application-agnostic, which means that they are not optimized for any particular application. InSAR products could be more...

Reusing water is a crucial part of the solution for addressing the growing concern regarding the risk of water scarcity in industrialized and urbanized areas. This study introduces a tool for the design of water networks, focusing on water reuse in industrial parks. Utilizing a mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) model developed earlier,...

Military vehicles are often subjected to dynamic loads from mines. To protect these vehicles, steel plating underneath the vehicle is applied. However, these steel plates can be quite heavy, resulting in a slower vehicle. Composite laminates, however, are much lighter and also prove to be capable of protecting these vehicles from mines.<br/...

The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS), which stores freshwater equal to more than seven meters of potential sea level rise, strongly interacts with the global, Arctic and North Atlantic climate. In a warming climate, the GrIS has been losing mass and is projected to lose mass at an increasing rate. The interactions between the GrIS and the climate have...

The excessive nitrogen in waterbodies, often caused by the discharge of ammonia-rich wastewaters, leads to eutrophication, disrupting aquatic ecosystems. Wastewater treatment plants play an important role in the removal and recovery of nitrogen from wastewater streams, thereby preventing pollution. Air stripping in combination with acid...
