The use of non-destructive tests for assessing the material status of concrete structures in the Netherlands remains relatively uncommon, despite the growing demand for the preservation of existing structures under the VenR policy of Rijkswaterstaat. Skepticism towards NDTs is reflected in the scarcity of documented case studies in publicly...

The surge in demand for inland vessel goods transportation has necessitated the operation of larger vessels with increased drafts. These larger vessels generate significant induced loads from their more powerful bow thrusters during berthing and mooring. These loads can lead to scour, which ultimately results in instability of the quay wall. To...

Data-driven health research, specifically the development of AI models, is hampered by poor data availability and associated administrative burdens, caused complex and fragmented data protection regulation. To reap the benefits of using high quality health data, while safeguarding data protection of patients, the synthetic data generation is...

Background: Health systems worldwide struggled to obtain sufficient personal protective equipment (PPE) and ventilators during the COVID-19 pandemic due to global supply chain disruptions. Our study’s aim was to create a proof-of-concept model that would simulate the effects of supply strategies under various scenarios, to ultimately help...

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...

The quest for novel alternatives to hexavalent-chromium-based corrosion inhibitors is of utmost significance and urgency. Strict international health and safety regulations, due to growing concerns regarding the impact of hexavalent chromium on human health and the environment, have pushed the commercial introduction of many alternative...

Physical model tests have been performed to study static stability of rock-armoured mild slopes. Current stability design formulae for steeper rock-armoured slopes focus on plunging and surging waves. Slopes of 1:6 and milder usually have more spilling breakers which decreases the load. Also, on mild slopes displaced rocks more often remain...

An overview is given of the state-of-the-art of natural and hybrid ventilation in buildings in general. The focus of this paper is on boundary conditions for openable windows. As a case study the Co Creation Centre at the TU-Delft is discussed. Occupants live in their own houses and often in an office or other working environments as well. Due...

The concept of circular economy, aiming at increasing the sustainability of products and services in the water and other sectors, is gaining momentum worldwide. Driven by this concept, novel bio-composite materials produced by recovering resources from different parts of the water cycle are now manufactured in The Netherlands. The new materials...

Due to good thermal conductivity and thermal shock resistance, ultra-high temperature ceramics such as zirconium diboride (ZrB2) have been investigated as promising materials to be used in reusable thermal protection systems TPSs are vital to the heat balance of a spacecraft during atmospheric reentry and subsequent operation in space. Hence,...

Real-time simulations have become a crucial tool for life cycle studies of VSC-based HVDC systems. This paper introduces real-time Multi-Terminal HVDC (MTDC) power [1] system network models with real-time wind pro le feedback. It addresses the shortcomings of existing benchmark network models and lls the modeling gaps. ® RSCAD/RTDS...

Fast, sensitive, and selective protection principles are one of the major challenges in the feasibility of modular multi-terminal (MMC) high voltage direct current (HVDC) grids. Rate of change of voltage (ROCOV) and transient-based solutions are the traditional and widely accepted protection principles. Despite the speed and practicality of...

Coastal flood managers seek to anticipate future flood risk and as a result consider the adaptation of flood defences. Instead of crest heightening, dikes can be adapted to include hydrodynamic reducing vegetated foreshores to form a nature-based hybrid flood defence, for instance; at managed realignments. In this study we investigated the...

In the past, a large part of the seabed of the southern North Sea was covered by hard substrates, including oyster beds, coarse peat banks, and glacial erratics. Human activities, particularly bottom trawl fisheries, led to the disappearance of most of these hard substrates, resulting in the loss of its associated diverse benthic life as well...

This thesis investigates and compares the performance of HVDC protection algorithms in terms of their sensitivity, selectivity, speed, and robustness. The threshold determination process for each algorithm has been described in detail as well. Each algorithm is tested under various fault resistances, and fault distances to test the sensitivity...

Military ground vehicles require protection against ballistic threats encountered in the battlefield. Traditionally used armour steel dramatically increases the weight of a vehicle, decreasing its mobility and hampering its capability of carrying payload. The development of new material and protection concepts, namely non-metallic armours, that...

The Falsterbo Peninsula is a low-lying area that provides a home to 7,000 residents, as well as various bird and vegetation species. To protect this densely populated area, the municipality was granted a permit to build flood protections. As part of the strategy, the dune system in the study area will be used as natural barriers against storm...

Climate change is intensifying severe weather and flood hazards, putting riverfront residents at growing risk. Although existing public flood defences like dikes and nature-based solutions offer protection, recent events like those in Limburg in 2021 highlight the need to address flood risk at the homeowner level. With the expectation that...
