This study aimed to generate accurate evapotranspiration (ETA) data for the Mountain Aquifer region using the SEBAL model in Google Earth Engine (GEE) with a resolution of 30 m. The analysis provided valuable insights into evapotranspiration's spatial and temporal dynamics and its relationship with land use characteristics. Significant spatial...

A random field generator based on Local Average Subdivision (LAS) method is proposed in this study in order to achieve probabilistic soil classification and quantify the uncertainty of the generated most probable geological cross section. CPT data and Robertson’s soil classification chart (1990) are adopted to classify the soil. The sole...

Concrete is the most used building material in the world. Its success can be linked back to its mouldability, durability and low cost. Unfortunately, current conventional concrete pedestrian bridge designs do not benefit from these key features and still require bulky shaped cross-sections, whereby part of the concrete does not contribute to the...

Covid-19 has had a major impact on mobility and especially on public transportation. In the Netherlands, the impact on public transport usage reduced up to 90% per day during the Covid-19 crisis compared to 2019. In June 2021, when travelling by public transport was allowed again, the usage was only half compared to a similar weekday in 2019. To...

The deterministic approach for interpreting CPT soil profiles poses the serious limitation of not taking data uncertainty into account. Therefore, a Bayesian model was developed by Wang et al. (2013) that, for a given CPT profile, determines the most probable number of soil layers and most probable soil layer thicknesses by simulating and...

The resiliency of coral reef islands to changing environments associated with climate change is controlled by the delicate balance between the import and export of sediment. The majority of the sediment is derived from coral reefs for which the stability of these islands is directly related to reef health. Understanding the sediment signature...

Shanghai is a city located in a coastal region and to understand the flood risks it is exposed to, it is of most importance to first understand the processes that control the water levels for the different flood scenarios. Historically, the Huangpu River has reached its highest levels during landfalling typhoon events, which create a combined...

Turnouts allow trains to change from one track to another. Therefore, they are an essential part of infrastructure to create and operate a railway network. This project focuses on the (common) crossing; the part of the turnout where the inner rails cross through one another. Because of the shape of the wheels, it is necessary to create a...

Measurements of a tachymetric network in the geothermal area of Bjarnarflag in North-East Iceland are performed during four consecutive years (2015-2018). For the yearly adjustment of the measurements an alternative iteration scheme to Baarda’s ’B-method of testing’ is proposed, because the level of significance of the F-test performed in the...

In this work, the effects of the addition of a cationic polymer ADIFLOC KD 451 (ADIPAP, France) in the performance of a decentralized Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor (AnMBR) pilot plant treating 1.5 m3 blackwater per day was studied. To this end, on-line sludge filterability characterizations were performed following the Delft Filtration...

The atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration has risen from 278 parts per million (ppm) in 1750 to 390.5 ppm in 2011. This increase is caused by anthropogenic emission, predominantly fossil fuel combustion. There is sufficient capacity in the oceans to take up to 70 to 80% of this amount, however, due to the large time scale of this...

Considered as an effective real-time monitoring tool, Acoustic Emission (AE) measurements is a promising technology for reinforced concrete (RC) structures. However, its application on real RC structures is still limited. Due to the lack of knowledge on the crack induced acoustic emission in large scale structures.<br/><br/>The aim of this study...

An onshore seismic survey is best conducted symmetrically, due to the reciprocity theorem of the wave field. Within the family of symmetric geometries the cross spread is most used. Recent developments show a marked increase of the number of available channels, nowadays 100,000+. This enables the use of point receivers, meaning that every...

Due to climate change, our society must become more climate resilient, and this is also the case for drinking water distribution systems. Climate change implicates that temperatures of the atmosphere are getting higher. This may lead to that the drinking water may become warmer. One of the consequences of climate change is that alternative ways...

Traditional Ordinary Portland cement (OPC)-based concrete consumes large quantities of natural resources for its production, which is<br/>highly energy intensive and has high CO2 emission. Therefore, development of the geopolymer concrete, based on use of industrial byproducts,<br/>can provide an environmentally friendly and low-carbon...

The Dutch drinking water benchmark has been carried out every three years since 1997. In 2011, the benchmark was incorporated into the Drinking Water Act. As a result the benchmark switched from a voluntarily benchmark executed by the Association of Dutch water companies to a mandatory benchmark executed by the Human Environment and Transport...

The response of a shallow foundation has been investigated by numerical simulations in a series of 1g small scale tests using the Finite Element Method. In this numerical study, special attention has been given to the influence of soft boundaries as a measure to counteract boundary effects, since limitations of space were present in the...
