The material point method (MPM) shows promise for the simulation of large deformations in history-dependent materials such as soils. However, in general, it suffers from oscillations and inaccuracies due to its use of numerical integration and stress recovery at non-ideal locations. The development of a hydro-mechanical model, which does not...

Urban planners and decision-makers face several challenges in keeping cities liveable. Getting a well-working urban freight system is one of these underexposed challenges, where there is still a lack of knowledge and awareness among them. Current freight policies are insufficient to tackle the increasing negative externalities due to lack of...

Thermoplastic composites are gaining prominence in the aerospace industry owing to their higher damage tolerance, cost-efficient means of manufacturing, and the possibility to be recycled. One of the major benefits of thermoplastics compared to thermosets is their ability to be welded, and one of the most promising welding techniques for...

The efficiency of a logistic service provider's network can be improved by implementing a receiver-led consolidation policy. This policy means that shipments destined to the same location are consolidated in one truck. The literature states that by doing this the costs, CO2 emissions and number of vehicle movements can be reduced. However,...

The versatility of automated composite technologies granted the possibility of manufacturing laminates with a continuous variation of fiber orientation, also known as Variable Stiffness Laminates (VSL). Despite offering enough dexterity to be adapted for composite deposition, industrial manipulators are nontrivial to integrate into other...

Over the past years, construction activities in the Netherlands shifted from spacious greenfield developments to dense inner-city redevelopment projects. Approximately 50 per cent of the total turnover in construction is generated within the country’s large cities. It’s expected that this percentage will grow to 80 per cent in the near future(De...

An ideal unit of bulk transport or storage equipment is able to handle cohesive iron ore with consistent productivity. In practice, however, uncontrollable bulk property variations affect the productivity. Therefore, it is important to understand the effect of uncontrollable variations on the process. This study quantifies variability and...

The computation time of Discrete Element Method (DEM) simulations increases exponentially when particle size is reduced or the number of particles increased. This critical challenge limits the use of DEM simulation for industrial applications, such as powder flow in silos. Scaling techniques can offer a solution to reduce computation time. In...

The Marker Wadden project aims to improve the ecosystem of Lake Markermeer (The Netherlands) by constructing a wetland with sediment from the lake. Sediment is dredged from the bed, and the resulting slurries are pumped into the project area. During this process, segregation and oxidation of the sediment may occur. The native sediment...

The Port of Rotterdam has many old harbours located close to the Rotterdam city center that are no longer suitable to be used for industrial purposes. Meanwhile due to expansion and population growth of the city, more recreational spaces are needed. The idea is to use the abundant dredged material from the Port of Rotterdam to fill in and...

The automation of thermoplastic composite production and the drive towards out-of-autoclave processes, is of great relevance in the aerospace and lightweight composite structures industry. Hence, there is a crucial need for developing the current state of material and process understanding, in order to increase the technology readiness levels of...

Organic soils and peat soils are widely distributed across the world, particularly in the Northern hemisphere in countries like Canada and Russia having 170 and 150 million hectares respectively and in tropical regions such as Indonesia and Malaysia, which contain 26 million and 3 million hectares respectively. Organic soils and peat are...

Submarine buried pipelines may often interact with shallow layers of loose sand that are particularly prone to liquefaction. When liquefaction is triggered by environmental loading and/or mechanical vibrations, the soil tends to behave as a viscous solid-fluid mixture and the pipeline to undergo either flotation or sinking. While a few...

Urban consolidation centres (UCCs) have been discussed over many years in city logistics literature. The amount of successful UCCs in the long-run were, and are, very scarce, though. Little is published on the practical issues and experiences of actually running a UCC and offering UCC-services. In the Netherlands, Binnenstadservice (BSS) runs...

This research investigates the potential of glass as a new design tool to highlight and safeguard our historic structures. Current restoration and conservation treatments with traditional materials bear the risk of conjecture between the original and new elements, whereas the high consolidation demands often result in visually invasive and...

As the demand for renewable energy is constantly rising, more offshore wind farms are being built at sea to meet European targets towards sustainable energy transition. Van Oord’s offshore installation vessel Aeolus was purposely-built to transport and install foundations of offshore wind turbines. To ensure that the vessel remains competitive...

Tunnel construction projects in the western part of the Netherlands are typically built in soft, heterogeneous ground conditions with low stiffness and high groundwater tables. The tunnelling technique used is the ‘slurry shield’ method, which uses a tunnel-boring machine (TBM). The TBM consists of a steel cylinder with a cutting wheel at the...

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...
