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 service and installation activities for offshore wind turbines are carried out by jack-up vessels, which eliminate wave disturbances to a large extent. The use of these vessels imposes several disadvantages, including high operational costs and the limitation of operating in restricted water depths. An alternative is a crane mounted on a...

Nuclear power is increasingly seen as a potential solution to the decarbonization of the energy sector in the coming decades. However, one of the main causes of downtime for current-generation nuclear reactors is the phenomenon of Grid-To-Rod-Fretting (GTRF) inside the reactor core. This is predominantly caused by Fluid-Structure Interaction ...

A computational framework is presented to numerically simulate the effects of antihypertensive drugs, in particular calcium channel blockers, on the mechanical response of arterial walls. A stretch-dependent smooth muscle model by Uhlmann and Balzani is modified to describe the interaction of pharmacological drugs and the inhibition of smooth...

Extensive studies have been performed on the effectiveness of scour protection against scour erosion progression. But there is little research to date evaluating the effect of scour protection on vertical resistance behaviour of monopile foundations. This paper investigates the influence of scour protection on the vertical loading behaviour of...

Scour leads to the loss of soil around monopile foundations for offshore wind turbines, which affects their structural safety. In this paper, the effect of scour on the lateral behaviour of monopiles was extensively investigated using finite element analysis, and calibration and comparison were undertaken using centrifuge tests. Piles with three...

The computational analysis of nanophotonic devices is usually carried out via the standard finite element method (FEM). However, FEM requires meshes that are fitted to the devices’ boundaries, so making changes to the geometry (and thus the mesh) results in an inefficient process at best. Such an approach is therefore at odds when conducting...

HIsarna is a new and breakthrough smelting reduction technology for producing liquid hot metal for steelmaking directly from iron ores. Compared to the conventional blast furnace route, HIsarna achieves a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions by eliminating coking and the need for iron ore agglomeration processes such as sintering and pelletizing and...

This thesis is part of a larger ongoing research project at the TU Delft regarding structural glass as a novel construction material. Here, the focus is directed towards the casting of glass to create complex free-form geometries. Thus far, only smaller components have been created, but a multitude of previous student work explored how the...

The solute transport across the osteochondral (OC) interface is of crucial metabolic importance for a normal function of articular cartilage, and, therefore, for the OC interface as a whole. A better understanding how the mechanical- and physiological properties of the OC interface affect the solute transport across the OC interface could lead...

Burns can make patients’ lives quite miserable. Apart from prominent and thickened, or hypertrophic, scars, the skin may be characterized by contraction. When this contraction is so severe that the patient loses joint mobility, it is called contracture. Then a patient may have difficulties with sports or other daily activities. The consequence...

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) offers numerous benefits, notably the ability to study flows that are challenging or costly to investigate using experiments. A central challenge in CFD lies in simulating fluid flow around complex geometries. Additionally, the governing equations follow conservation laws. This thesis aims to establish the...

Probabilistic numerics methods are a novel approach to quantifying the approximation errors in numerical computations as probabilistic uncertainties. A recent method that was developed is the Bayesian Finite Element Method, which aims to determine the discretization errors along a coarse mesh probabilistically. This work analyzes the use of...

Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) have been widely utilised in aircraft structures for their specific strength, durability and damage tolerance. Most aircraft structures, due to their size, require joining, and FMLs allow for a special type of joint called the splice, a unique but a lesser known joint.<br/><br/>The bulk of research into the splice...

In this thesis, the acoustic noise emitted by a small electric outrunner motor, such as the ones commonly used in unmanned areal vehicles, is analyzed using a multiphysics simulation based on the finite element method. The simulation covers the electromagnetic, mechanical and acoustic domain. The electromagnetic simulation is performed in the 2D...

This thesis introduces the Discontinuity-Enriched Finite Element Method (DE-FEM) for the modeling of dynamic multiple crack growth problems including branching and merging, as an alternative to eXtended/Generalized Finite Element Method (X/GFEM). DE-FEM differs from X/GFEM by placing the enriched degrees of freedom (DOFs) directly along the...

The concept of lightweight design is driving future aircraft to exploit all the available strength of materials and further reduce the weight of an aircraft leading to lower fuel consumption and more sustainable aviation. Current designs introduce rivets and bolts to join the structure and simultaneously create holes in the pristine material,...

The Netherlands is a country that is being threatened by water, both from the rivers and from the sea. The Dutch have built dikes to keep their lands from inundation. To ensure the strength and stability of these dikes, they are being assessed on the basis of several failure mechanisms. One of these failure mechanisms is...

The main motive for this research was to study the behaviour of quay walls when there is an uneven pile foundation present. This means that the number of piles varies in the thickness of the quay wall along the length. The inspiration came from the failure of the Grimburgwal (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) that collapsed in 2020, which had a length...
