Crane hardstands serve as crucial platforms for supporting heavy lifting equipment and ensuring operational efficiency. However, crane hardstands are not infinitely stiff and will deform upon loading. Uneven loading during wind turbine installation will result in differential deformation of the crane hardstand, causing the crane to tilt. A small...

The applicability of the Sellmeijer design rule to Limburg dike sections near Well, Hout-Blerick, Buggenum, and Thorn was investigated in this thesis. This was accomplished by building a finite element numerical model, in COMSOL Multiphysics, to assess the piping in the hydrogeological systems of the research locations. The proposed model is...

A series of critical transmission lattice towers failures due to severe ice and wind loads forced German utility companies to reassess the structural stability of their power grid infrastructure. During the structural reassessment process, a problem related to an outdated or even missing documentation of the in-use infrastructure occurred. This...

Fin Ray Effect (FRE) grippers have proven versatile and effective in pick & place automation applications. However, spherical and lateral round objects are still a challenge for the state-of-the-art, as solutions are unstable when placing those objects off-centre from the longitudinal line. Resulting in large and heavy FRE gripper assemblies...

In the near future, pressure on sustainability requirements in building structures will increase further as governments around the world are forced to tackle climate change issues. The construction industry is one of the most resource intensive and wasteful sectors in the world and is estimated to keep growing at a fast pace due to growing...

Wind energy is now a popular competitor among other energy sources all around the world. The offshore wind industry has progressed in recent years, with larger wind turbines being installed in deeper oceans. The construction of such large-scale wind farms necessitates more modern foundation design technologies to increase operational safety...

Railway sleepers form an important part of a classic track structure. Sleepers exists in their current form for a long time. The transition from wood to concrete sleeper has been made, but wood is still used and present in many track sections. As creosoted wooden sleepers are not allowed to be installed on the tracks anymore the search for...

For railway travel the Insulated Rail Joint (IRJ) is a critical part in most railway safety systems but at the same time also considered a weak link. The IRJ creates a discontinuity in stiffness and geometry that leads to wheel-rail impact forces. The angled IRJ is a proposal to reduce these impact forces. Despite the real-world experiences with...

Over the past few decades, there has been a steep increase in efforts to generate electricity from clean and renewable energy sources so as to reduce consumption of fossil fuels. A considerable amount of research is in progress to explore the scope of various sustainable power sources; among which tidal energy is estimated to have a huge...

Recent, light earthquakes induced by the extraction of gas in the north of the Netherlands have been linked to light, mostly aesthetic damage of the traditional masonry structures in the region; this is also connected to economic losses and societal unrest. To be able to accurately assess the light damage, detailed finite element models are...

The demand for nanoparticles in various applications is increasing. These applications can only be realised if nanoparticles can be specifically arranged and patterned on a substrate. This thesis considers a direct write method that uses an aerodynamic focusing nozzle to deposit these particles. A major challenge arises when the nanoparticles...

Drying shrinkage can cause structural damage to concrete industrial floors. Shrinkage is caused by evaporation of moisture from the drying material. In the design- and construction-standards, this complex process is not described on a fundamental level. Using finite element modelling to simulate the flow of Moisture through the concrete, it is...

Ferrofluid pocket bearings are interesting for fast and precise positioning systems thank to the absence of stick-slip, the low viscous friction and their cost-effective nature. However, the characteristics of the bearing change due to over(de)compression since air escapes out of the enclosed pocket. This article presents an experimentally...

The growing need to understand the behaviour of un-reinforced masonry URM), subjected to<br/>repeated light man-made earthquakes caused by the extraction of gas in the north-eastern part<br/>of The Netherlands has resulted in intense research to determine the exact process of crack<br/>initiation and propagation. The historical masonry buildings...

Ferrofluid bearings provide a cheap and passive alternative to contactless bearings such as magnetic bearings and fluid bearings. The absence of stick-slip and the low viscous friction make them interesting for high precision applications. Despite the theoretical models available in literature, the number of design rules for ferrofluid bearings...

Wooden mitre gates are used for centuries in waterways and canals. For newly built as well as the renewal of such gates, a number of wood species is used, ranging from oak to dense tropical hardwoods. As mitre gates have high loads to withstand, their strength verification has become more and more important. As strength verification rules for...
