This paper presents the work on six single-stringer specimens manufactured using the card-sliding technique with non-crimp fabrics and adopting a Double-Double (DD) stacking sequence. These specimens, representative of sub-structure level components, are used to investigate post-buckling and failure in aerospace structures. Two specimens...

Atrial fibrillation is a cardiac arrhythmia resulting from abnormal electrical conduction and impulse formation within the atria. To address this condition, a minimally invasive procedure called cardiac ablation is performed. Real-time visual feedback during this procedure plays a critical role in determining its success.<br/><br/>Photoacoustic...

Endovascular thrombectomy procedures are significantly influenced by the mechanical response of thrombi to the multi-axial loading imposed during retrieval. Compression tests are commonly used to determine compressive ex vivo thrombus and clot analogue stiffness. However, there is a shortage of data in tension. This study compares the tensile...

Embedded load-bearing laminated glass connections have gained popularity in recent years due to their mechanical performance and aesthetic appeal. However, there is a paucity of data on their structural behaviour across a range of temperatures that may arise in building applications and there is also no simplified mechanics-based model for...

This study aims at better understanding the damage tolerance of stiffened composite panels subjected to fatigue loads in the post-buckling regime. Ten single-stringer hat-stiffened specimens with an initial delamination between the skin and the stringer foot were manufactured, and then tested under quasi-static and fatigue loads in post...

Thermal energy storage is increasingly needed in a sustainable world because of its potential of capturing waste heat and being incorporated in solar power plants. For power generation, in particular, as turbine technology advances, a demand for higher temperature thermal energy storage materials also grows. For this purpose, latent thermal...

In old Dutch inner cities like Amsterdam a large number of steel-concrete bridge decks built between 1880 and 1960 remain in service nowadays and currently need assessment of their bearing capacity. A significant number of these decks were designed without any mechanical connectors like shear studs in the interface between concrete and steel....

A dam-break wave can result in considerable damages and casualties. Events that can lead to such waves include dike and dam breaches, storm surges and impulse waves. Dutch history is familiar with a number of coastal dike breaches but also river dike breaches have occurred, resulting in dam-break waves reaching far inland. Beyond the Netherlands...

This paper presents experimental testing of a new semi-active vibration control device comprising a shape memory polymer (SMP) core that is reinforced by an SMP-aramid composite skin. This control device works as a load-transfer component that can be integrated into truss and frame structures in the form of a joint. At the material level,...

A novel pile-driving technique, named Gentle Driving of Piles (GDP), that combines axial low-frequency and torsional high-frequency vibrations has been developed and tested recently. During the experimental campaign, several piles were installed onshore, making use of the GDP shaker. Besides those, a number of additional piles were installed...

This work aims to understand deformation and fracture processes in blast furnace slag cement pastes made using CEM III/B which is commonly used in the Dutch infrastructure sector. First, based on our previous work on Portland cement pastes, a micromechanical model utilizing nanoindentation and X-ray computed tomography (CT) for input is...

The use of hybrid and composite solutions for structural applications represents a common approach for the development of safe design principles. Consolidated examples exist for concrete, steel and masonry structures. As a general rule, materials are combined so as to obtain an enhanced redundancy, strength and/or (lateral) stiffness for these...

Near Surface Mounted (NSM) reinforcement is an interesting technique for seismic strengthening of masonry and historical structures. Despite having several advantages compared to conventional techniques, little attention has been given to understanding the involved mechanisms (such as bond behavior) in the performance of masonry components...

Micropiles, which are small-diameter deep foundation solutions with diameters that can measure up to 300 mm, are often used to reinforce new and existing foundations. Their use in the foundations of structures with high eccentricity, such as wind towers when subjected to wind loads, may lead to more efficient and economical solutions. As the...

In recent years, induced seismicity in the north of the Netherlands significantly increased. As a consequence, the seismic assessment of the built environment, which mainly consists of unreinforced masonry (URM) structures not designed for seismic loads, became of high relevance. Within this context, an extensive multiscale testing program has...

Laminated glass components are usually realized by bonding glass plates using interlayer polymers that develop adhesion forces during lamination. Recently, these adhesion forces have been used also to realize special adhesive connections for structural glass components and assemblies. The typical example of such a joining technique is...

In the northern part of the Netherlands, The recent seismic activities have raised concerns about the behavior of unreinforced masonry structures which were not designed and constructed to resist seismic loading. The first step towards assessment of seismic behavior of masonry structures is to characterize the material properties. This...
