Since the introduction of cementitious materials, shrinkage-induced earlyage cracking (EAC) has emerged as a significant issue that negatively influences the function, durability, and aesthetics of concrete structures like dams, tunnels, and underground garages. This thesis aims to develop new experimental and modelling techniques that help...

In common practice, quay walls are engineered to fulfil their services for a minimum lifetime. However, in many cases, quay walls are designed stronger than minimally required, which means that the quay wall could be able to serve its purpose over a longer period or endure higher loads. In general, the optimization of quay wall designs or the...

In the prevailing context of the 21st century, characterized by a predominant reliance on oil and gas, or in the promising future where green energy shapes a human society committed to net-zero emissions, the role of underground fractured formations in energy production and storage remains pivotal and irreplaceable. Geological faults typically...

Current design methods for oblique manifolds were first presented in the paper of London et al. in 1968. This method presents a single equation to shape the dividing manifold of several manifold configurations. However, current literature shows a potential to improve the current design method by implementing advanced techniques. This paper aims...

A convex pattern surface is proposed and optimized to mitigate the sliding wear of bulk handling equipment caused by interaction with bulk solids. This work investigates the effectiveness of the convex pattern surface on wear reduction during interactions with non-spherical particles. Multiple representative particles, obtained through a...

Earthquakes involve mass redistribution within the solid Earth and the ocean, and as a result, perturb the Earth's gravitational field. For most of the shallow (&lt;60 km) earthquakes with M<sub>w</sub> &gt; 8.0, the GRACE satellite gravity measurements suggest considerable volumetric disturbance of rocks. At a spatial scale of hundreds of km...

Conventional hinge actuators often face limitations including excessive weight, large size and unpleasant noise. Shape memory alloys (SMAs) offer a solution to address these issues due to their favorable characteristics, such as lightweight, high actuation force and small form factor. However, most existing SMA-based hinge actuators rely on...

Early-age cracking risk induced by autogenous deformation is high for cementitious materials of low water-binder ratios. The autogenous deformation, viscoelastic properties, and stress evolution are three important factors for understanding and quantifying the early-age cracking risk. This paper systematically reviewed the experimental and...

The present study aims to develop an original solid-like shell element for large deformation analysis of hyperelastic shell structures in the context of isogeometric analysis (IGA). The presented model includes a new variable to describe the thickness change of the shell and allows for the application of unmodified three-dimensional...

The development of hot dry rocks (HDRs) is of great significance to adjusting energy structure, alleviating energy shortage, reducing pollution, etc. Low-permeability granite is the predominant rock type in deep HDRs, making fractures the primary pathways for fluid circulation and heat extraction. The production of HDRs is significantly...

Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) has gained popularity due to its speed and cost-effectiveness. However, the current knowledge on the cyclic deformation behaviour of WAAM materials is limited. To address this issue, this study investigates the cyclic deformation behaviour of WAAM ER70S-6 carbon steel. Coupons were extracted from printed...

With distributed propulsion and electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft on the rise, fast and accurate methods to simulate propeller slipstreams and their interaction with aircraft components are needed. In this work, we compare results obtained with a filament-based free wake panel method to experimental and previously validated...

The transformation model is an essential component of any deformable image registration approach. It provides a representation of physical deformations between images, thereby defining the range and realism of registrations that can be found. Two types of transformation models have emerged as popular choices: B-spline models and mesh models....

Featured Application: This study emphasizes the importance of comprehensive monitoring, calibration, and optimization of storage strategies in a saline aquifer. It also highlights the need to manage geomechanical risks and uncertainties. By understanding these risks and employing suitable monitoring techniques, the integrity and safety of GCS...

The recent success of - and demand for - compliant mechanisms has increased rapidly within the micro-electromechanical systems-, aircraft-, spacecraft-, surgical-, and precision-instrument industries. Yet, even greater success may be achieved by overcoming the computational cost and instability of the mechanisms' design methodology. This...

The Airborne Wind Energy industry is evolving rapidly, aiming to establish its position among the major players in the conventional renewable energy sector. Since this industry is relatively young, it faces various challenges with scaling and integration into society. One aspect that can be improved is the design process of soft-wing kites. The...

This thesis addresses the topic of ongoing (excessive) deformations observed in balanced cantilever prestressed concrete bridges all over the world. Many authors attribute this behavior to the time-dependent phenomena of creep and shrinkage. Balanced cantilever bridges are classified as creep-sensitive structures, and for that reason, a detailed...

Conventional hydrostatic bearings are not suited to use on surfaces with changing curvature which limits their applicability. To improve on this, deformable hydrostatic bearings are currently being researched. The goal of this work is to develop hydrostatic bearings with a single fluid supply that work for sinusoidal counter surfaces. <br/><br/...

This thesis investigates the ability of Bayesian EUCLID to retrieve a predictive approximate material model for the myocardium in the presence of heterogeneous deformation fields due to simulated biaxial stretch tests. The Holzapfel-Ogden material model is used as the ground-truth material model of the simulation, since it is capable of...

The Netherlands is currently facing a significant challenge regarding its highway system due to the rise in traffic, especially in densely populated areas like The Randstad. However, constructing new infrastructure or replacing old bridges is not a practical solution due to environmental concerns. Most of the country's prestressed concrete...
