Modeling the relationship between rainfall and runoff is a longstanding challenge in hydrology and is crucial for informed water management decisions. Recently, Deep Learning models, particularly Long short-term memory (LSTM), have shown promising results in simulating this relationship. The Transformer, a newly proposed deep learning...

This thesis comprises of vertical deformation differences in high-rise structures where a concrete stability core is combined with a timber frame. The timber frame consists out of prefab timber modules which derive all lateral stability from the concrete core. Due to contrasting elastic, hygroexpansion and viscoelastic properties there is a...

Understanding the factors that drive extreme water levels is key to an accurate assessment of flood hazard. The city of Venice has always been affected by flooding due to extreme water levels. In this study, we examine the factors driving and influencing extreme water levels in the Venice lagoon, aiming at deriving accurate extreme water level...

Kelp Blue is a company whose top priority is the well-being of the planet. Through the cultivation of giant kelp on offshore farms, they create several sustainable products, new job opportunities in regions where they are needed, enhance biodiversity in the water, and above all, sequester tons of CO2 from the air. The start-up is still in its...

Experimental research into the spalling behaviour of mortars and if it is possible to predict the spalling resistance. Research is divided into spalling experiments with varying parameters and experiments to analyse and characterize the pore structure. By combining both results, a first step is taken into a formula that is able to predict the...

Lock passage can potentially make up a third of a vessel’s travel time for inland waterway transport and therefore has a large impact on inland waterway and multimodal transport networks.<br/>To reduce the overall environmental and economical impact of transport, there is an increasing interest in inland waterway transport relative to road and...

The stability analysis of electromagnetic suspension system applied to Hyperloop in simplified two degrees of freedom system has been studied deeply where the track-beam is regarded as a point mass and the effects of velocity and beam are neglected. However, there is little reference on the study of the interaction between electromagnetic...

Bromate is a possible human carcinogen that does not naturally exist in surface or groundwater bodies. Its formation mostly results from ozonating bromide-containing water during wastewater treatment or drinking water production. Bromate is difficult to remove from water due to its high solubility and low reactivity in the aqueous environment;...

The development towards a circular economy has many hurdles to overcome. For the construction sector an important step in this process is the transition towards reusing structural elements. Prefabrication of elements is a significant step towards achieving this concept. However, a case where both prefabrication and reuse are limited is the...

On the 13th and 14th of July 2021 a cold pit caused extreme precipitation along with record discharges in tributaries of the Meuse. These discharges caused floods in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.<br/><br/>Extreme precipitation occurrence and its intensity are expected to increase in the area due to climate change, increasing flood risk....

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management looks into the possibility of raising the awareness of Dutch citizens as policy measure to encourage travellers to travel in a more conscious and more climate-friendly manner. Scientific literature, however, shows contradictory results on the effectiveness of this measure. An ongoing academic...

Offshore structures are often founded on mud-mat foundations which prevent the structure from settling excessively. Pressure differences are generated under mud-mats during removal from the seabed. These differences lead to a force that resists the uplift. A literature study on breakout resulted in a hypothesized distinction of four mechanisms...

The use of welding is widely adopted to assemble structural components in the construction industry for many years. To ensure safety of these welded components, many fatigue tests have been conducted on many different shapes and configurations of welded connections to precisely assess the fatigue<br/>life. However, testing real-size structures...

In the past decade, the application of Neural Networks (NNs) has received increasing interest due to the growth in computing power. In the field of computational mechanics, this has led to numerous publications presenting surrogate models to assist or replace conventional simulation methods. A subset of these networks, referred to as Graph...

In the near future, Rijkswaterstaat has the task to replace or renovate many ship locks. With the long-term project, MultiWaterWerk, Rijkswaterstaat aims to standardise components of these ship locks. This thesis contributes to the project by researching the potential benefits of standardisation of the bed protection design at waiting places at...

Research about alkali-activated materials or geopolymers has increased in the past decade as they are regarded as a potential replacement to cement-based materials. This is due to the fact that alkali-activated materials possess several advantages over cement-based materials, and the most important one is that they are more sustainable to the...

One-third of the global population relies on non-sewered sanitation. In urban areas of low-and-middle income countries, treatment of faecal sludge is often insufficient. On-site sanitation technologies can provide sustainable and more affordable sanitation solutions for urban areas, but only if functioning faecal sludge management is in place....

This research focuses on reliability-based, Bayesian updating of grout anchors’ bearing capacity. Firstly, grouted anchors are commonly used in practice, even though large uncertainties surround their bearing capacity. Secondly, every anchor must be tested on their working load for quality assurance. Because of the combination of those two...

Due to river training in the past centuries, the bed level of the Waal started and is still decreasing by several centimetres a year. Erosion of the riverbed causes problems for objects underneath the riverbed like cables, pipelines and foundations of structures. Furthermore, some parts of the river are eroding at a higher velocity compared to...
