Klein, Femke (author)
This thesis aims to contribute to the understanding of how waves interact with soil. It is crucial for various applications in Civil Engineering to analyze the behaviour of soil and to understand the physics behind it. This master thesis contributes to this understanding via studying the impact of the boundary conditions on the model results...

Poroelasticity theory can be used to analyse the coupled interaction between fluid flow and porous media (matrix) deformation. The classical theory of linear poroelasticity captures this coupling by combining Terzaghi’s effective stress with a linear continuity equation. Linear poroelasticity is a good model for very small deformations;...

Water injection in the aquifer induces deformations in the soil. These mechanical deformations give rise to a change in porosity and permeability, which results in non-linearity of the mathematical problem. Assuming that the deformations are very small, the model provided by Biot’s theory of linear poroelasticity is used to determine the...

A turbulent flow is composed of swirling eddies of many sizes. Energy, which is added to the flow at the larger scales, is transferred down through consecutively smaller eddies until the scale is small enough that viscous forces dominate, at which point the energy is dissipated. The mechanism by which energy is transferred down the scales of...

Stress and water injection induce deformations and changes in pore pressure in the soil. The interaction between the mechanical deformations and the flow of water induces a change in porosity and permeability, which results in nonlinearity. To investigate this interaction and the impact of mechanical vibrations and pressure pulses on the flow...

The pressuremeter test is one of the most popular in-situ soil testing methods. Developed in the 1950s in France, the test has evolved throughout the past decades and was built into a cone resulting in a cone pressuremeter device (CPM). A proposed extension of the test involves time dependent pressurisation of the device resulting in wave...

Both in practice and in theory it is known that there are ‘injection points’ or preferential flow paths in the subsurface. At such points the soil absorbs significantly more water than at other depths on such a location. One of the reasons of this phenomenon is the heterogeneity of the subsurface. in this study a number of hypotheses were tested...

In this Delft Cluster work package “Bijzondere Belastingen” (CT01.21) the consequences of an accident with the transport of explosion hazardous goods are considered: BLEVE (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapour Explosion) and gas explosion. These phenomena have a low probability of occurrence, but might have immense consequences. Therefore, a...
