Schedule design in the transportation and logistics sector is a widely studied problem. Transport service providers, such as the train industry and aviation, aim for schedules to be on-time according to the planning (i.e., on-time performance or OTP) in order to increase the service level by ensuring that passengers actually make their...

Both preloaded and injected bolted connections are commonly used in steel bridges in The Netherlands. Where preloaded bolted connections are already used for a longer time, the injection of bolt holes is a method used from the 1970s onwards. Injection of bolts became a good alternative for the replacement of riveted connections. This injection...

Post-earthquake structural damage shows that out-of-plane wall collapse is one of the most prevalent failure mechanisms in unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings. This issue is particularly critical in Groningen, a province located in the northern part of the Netherlands, where low-intensity ground shaking has occurred since 1991 due to gas...

Romijn, Kasja (author)
Over the past few decades, the Netherlands has built numerous steel railway bridges to improve its infrastructure. The repeated loading from railway traffic makes steel bridges susceptible to fatigue damage. The stress ranges at fatigue-prone locations are generally higher in railway bridges than in road traffic bridges. Due to the limited space...

From a global perspective, the building industry is one of the significant factors of environmental impact on the planet. Related activities in this industry refer to 40% of total carbon emissions; 28% of this value accounts for building operations, while the remaining 12% represents the manufacturing of new construction materials. Studies have...

In this master thesis, the design and implementation of a high-voltage switch using series-connected Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors (MOSFETs) is discussed. A high-voltage switch is needed for applications such as high-voltage DC converters. Multilevel modular converters (MMCs) can also aid in the voltage-blocking capabilities...

As many bridges in the Netherlands are past their design-life and yet still have well-functioning steel superstructures, their bridge decks are often due to be replaced. FRP panels are promising alternatives to concrete decks for these renovation works due to their low density, fast on-site construction time, and excellent acoustic and thermal...

The thixotropic properties of contemporary mortars allow the insertion of mortar in small vertical seams by using a mortar pump without the need for traditional formwork. In such a seam, a vertical mortar connection for the transfer of shear forces can be created by simply adding a profile to the mortar-to-concrete interfaces. In this way a...
