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...

Neural Radiance Fields (NeRFs) have showcased remarkable effectiveness in capturing complex 3D scenes and synthesizing novel viewpoints. By inherently capturing the entire scene in a compact representation, they offer a promising avenue for applications such as simulators, where efficient storage of real-world data, fast rendering and dynamic...

Amidst the rampant spread of misinformation, fact-checking of diverse claims made on the internet has become a pertinent task to mitigate this problem. Manual fact-checking cannot scale up with this demand and is very cumbersome, therefore instead automated fact-checking can be used. However, existing work has primarily focused on the fact...

Wilgenburg, Gert (author)
The use of non-destructive tests for assessing the material status of concrete structures in the Netherlands remains relatively uncommon, despite the growing demand for the preservation of existing structures under the VenR policy of Rijkswaterstaat. Skepticism towards NDTs is reflected in the scarcity of documented case studies in publicly...

While the assumption of incompressible flow has been the prevailing standard for numerical simulations of wind turbine aerodynamics, the limit of this assumption is approached as the industry progresses towards increasingly higher operational tip speeds. This thesis explores the implications of compressibility and transonic flow phenomena,...

The offshore wind industry is rapidly advancing, expected to play a crucial role in renewable energy production, with a growing emphasis on addressing associated environmental concerns, particularly the impact of underwater noise generated during the installation of wind turbines. In response, bubble curtain technology (BCT) has emerged as a...

In the Netherlands, numerous bridges face reassessment. During this assessment, it is observed that in some cases, the applied shear reinforcement (stirrups) does not meet the detailing requirement given in the national annex of the NEN-EN 1992-2. This requirement, which states that the stirrups must enclose the longitudinal reinforcement to...

About 70 prestressed concrete T-beam bridges, constructed in the Netherlands between 1953–1977, are still in use today with many located in the main highway network. This type of bridge consists of prefabricated and prestressed T-shaped beams, with an integrated deck slab, cross-beams and transverse prestressing. Even if these bridges are well...

Bashandy, Vincent (author)
The current global environmental crisis has resulted in increased efforts towards more efficient and sustainable industrial processes. High-temperature heat between 150 ◦C & 400 ◦C accounts for a major part of the energy demand in industrial processes. At the same time, large quantities of waste heat are unutilised at temperatures up to 200 ...

Trees are essential components of both real and digital environments. Therefore, it is important to have 3D models of trees that are of high quality and computationally efficient. One way to achieve this is by compressing a high-quality model using billboard rendering, which involves partitioning the tree into multiple planes to produce a...

The currently available treatments for inner ear disorders often involve systemic drug administration, leading to suboptimal drug concentrations and side effects. Cochlear implants offer a potential solution by providing localized and sustained drug delivery to the cochlea. While the mechanical characterization of both the implants and their...

The use of waste materials has gained attention as a sustainable approach in various industries. Cigarette waste, which is typically discarded as a non-recyclable material, poses a significant environmental challenge due to its toxicity and slow decomposition rate. However, by incorporating this waste into ceramic bricks, new approaches for...

We consider the problem of recovering complex-valued block sparse signals with unknown borders. Such signals arise naturally in numerous applications. Several algorithms have been developed to solve the problem of unknown block partitions. In pattern-coupled sparse Bayesian learning (PCSBL), each coefficient involves its own hyperparameter...

The gas dynamics of single-phase nonreacting fluids whose thermodynamic states are close to vapor-liquid saturation, close to the vapor-liquid critical point, or in supercritical conditions differs quantitatively and qualitatively from the textbook gas dynamics of dilute, ideal gases. Due to nonideal fluid thermodynamic properties,...

The aircraft Environmental Control System (ECS) is the primary consumer of non-propulsive power at cruise conditions, hence, its performance optimization is crucial for the reduction of specific fuel consumption. A novel integrated system design optimization method is presented: thermodynamic cycle, component sizing and working fluid are...

Wall-resolved large-eddy simulations (LES) are performed to investigate Reynolds number effects in supersonic turbulent boundary layers (TBLs) at Mach 2.0. The resulting database covers more than a decade of friction Reynolds number Re<sub>τ</sub>, from 242 to 5554, which considerably extends the parameter range of current high-fidelity...

Auxetic cementitious cellular composites (ACCCs) exhibit desirable mechanical properties (e.g., high fracture resistance and energy dissipation), due to their unique deformation characteristics. In this study, a new type of cementitious auxetic material, referred to as peanut shaped ACCC, has been designed and subsequently architected using...

This study investigates the development of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) gel matrices for biomass immobilization in wastewater treatment. The PVA hydrogels were prepared through a freezing–thawing (F-T) cross-linking process and reinforced with high surface area nanoparticles to improve their mechanical stability and porosity. The PVA/nanocomposite...

Developing comprehensive health indicators (HIs) for composite structures encompassing various damage types is challenging due to the stochastic nature of damage accumulation and uncertain events (like impact) during operation. This complexity is amplified when striving for HIs independent of historical data. This paper introduces an AI...
