The offshore renewable energy market is rapidly growing, particularly in wind and solar sectors. The intermittent nature of these energy sources underscores the necessity for offshore energy storage solutions. Among the techniques being explored, Marine Pumped Hydro-Energy Storage (MPHES) emerges as a promising option. This innovative concept...

The implementation of morphing wings technology has the potential to significantly improve aircraft performance. However, due to the complex interplay between aerodynamics and structural integrity, it requires an aerostructural analysis. 3DExperience by Dassault Systèmes is a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) - based software with integrated...

The transverse stability of timber terraced houses can be provided by CLT stability walls where decoupled timber terraced houses are preferred to meet acoustic requirements leading to rather large thicknesses for the CLT stability walls and many large connections for anchorage to the foundation. The main goal of this research was to investigate...

Modeling the consolidation of fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites at the part level presents a formidable computational challenge due to the multi-scale nature of the process. In this article, a method to bypass the multi-scale problem by homogenizing the micro scale and describing the medium with characteristic parameters is described....

In this study, a novel experimental approach was devised to investigate shear dominant and combined opening-shear planar delamination behaviours in composite laminates subjected to quasi-static out-of-plane loading. The patterns of planar delamination growth were depicted through different inspection techniques, including digital image...

3-D braided composites are a promising material for manufacturing tubular structures. However, a thorough understanding of their damage mechanisms under torsion is required to maximize their potential applications. The present work constructed a multiscale equivalent model, integrating mesoscopic and homogeneous structures to reveal torsional...

In this paper, the hydroelasticity of two segmented ship models (Barge and KVLCC2) is investigated by experimental and numerical methods. A two-way Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) coupled method is adopted and further validated its accuracy against experimental results. The current approach emphasizes the...

fracture simulation is crucial for understanding bone fractures and their underlying physiology and pathophysiology. To achieve this objective, a collaborative effort between the Amsterdam Skill Centre (ASC) and TU Delft (TUD) culminated in the development of an innovative fracture device. The ASC's surgical department furnished us with a set of...

The global focus on climate change and the transition away from fossil fuels has highlighted the importance of renewable energy sources. Offshore wind turbines are being optimized and are therefore growing in size and power. <br/><br/>This research focuses on bolted ring-flange connections, a connection type that plays a crucial role in the...

Although relevant information regarding the curtain walls structural damage state is available, hardly any data referring to the seismic loading effect on the overall façade performance is found in the literature. The present research attempts to assess the unitised curtain walls seismic performance by identifying the occurring damage mechanisms...

Crownwalls are often placed on top of vertical composite breakwaters to reduce overtopping. Adding a seawards facing overhang at the top of crownwalls has successfully reduced overtopping even further without increasing the freeboard of the crownwall. Crownwalls with a fully curved (FC) face are most often used in seawalls where they are...

The light and frequent earthquakes in the north of the Netherlands, particularly in the province of Groningen, have recently exposed the unreinforced masonry structures to seismic activities. Since these structures do not adhere to seismic regulations, they are considered vulnerable to seismicity. The ultimate state capacity of the structures is...

Given the desire to construct more structures using sustainable building materials, demand for wood and other bio-based building materials has risen dramatically over the decade. While timber itself is a carbon-neutral material and can sometimes even be carbon-negative, reusing wooden structural members made that have been in service for several...

The use of CFD-based optimizations is becoming a standard for turbomachinery design. Although the use of such optimizations can lead to great improvements of the machine performances, there are still several shortcomings in the common design procedure of turbomachines. In fact, this entails the optimization of the component shape, and only a...

The present study proposes a comprehensive integrity assessment approach for a full-scale adhesively-bonded bi-material joint for maritime applications. The joint represents a cross-section of the bond-line connection of a ship with a steel hull and a sandwich composite superstructure. The full-scale joint consists of a sandwich composite...

This paper presents a computational study to investigate the mechanical properties of human penile tissues. Different experimental testing regimes, namely indentation and plate-compression tests, are compared to establish the most suitable testing regime for establishing the mechanical properties of the different penile tissues. An idealised...

Vegetation meadows in coastal waters are a key constituent of a future green defense package due to the ecosystem services they provide and the potential to attenuate wave energy. To numerically describe the vegetation dynamics under wave action, this paper presents a novel application of a numerical coupling for solving fluid–elastic...
