The imminence of anthropogenic climate change has motivated a global energy transition towards sustainable power generation. Offshore wind—an important contributor to the energy transition—is expanding, not only in turbine size and number of installations, but also into regions with harsher environmental conditions. One of those conditions in...

Safety and reliability of aircraft structures are of main concern within the aerospace industry, preferably without influencing the availability of the aircraft and maintenance and operation costs. As damages in composites can be hard to detect, methods are being developed to detect damages which can potentially lead to a (catastrophic) failure...

Mangrove forests are highly valuable environments that offer numerous ecosystem services, including carbon storage, serving as nurseries for fish and shrimp, and providing timber. Additionally, these ecosystems offer coastline protection against erosion and flooding by attenuating waves and trapping sediment. Despite the crucial role of mangrove...

In the semiconductor industry, the minimumelement size has stepped into nanometer level. To keep the functionality of fabricated nanostructures, there is a huge demand of a technique that can provide non-destructive inspection and allow for in-line or in-situ monitoring during the manufacturing process. Optical scatterometry, which uses the far...

Concrete is the second most used material in the world after water and recent trends show no slowing down of the concrete use around the world. Concrete is also a huge contributor to CO2 emissions as it makes up 8% of emissions. This study investigates the optimization of concrete structures to reduce environmental impact while maintaining...

As far as a historic city is concerned, a city is a dynamic complex which consists of many different interrelated and interactive elements. It is unreasonable to assess urban heritage by using a single value category. The evaluation of urban heritage values needs to develop a theoretical framework to represent the relationships between different...

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...

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of hybrid materials with metal-based inorganic nodes connected by organic linkers via strong coordination bonds. These building blocks can be arranged in 3-D crystalline lattices to synthesize structures with varying pore sizes and a variety of structures (tuneability). These hybrid materials possess...

The abstract outlines a study focusing on improving the design approach for flexible dolphins, vital marine structures used for vessel berthing and mooring. Current design methodologies, particularly those outlined in the CROW C1005 handbook (2018), are questioned due to potential conservatism stemming from insufficiently calibrated partial...

Flood risks and its consequences become more and more challenging and are demanding for the currently present dike systems and hydraulic structures in the Netherlands. This automatically raises the question for the possibility of adjustable temporary deployable flood defences that work autonomously. Nowadays it is more likely that a standard...

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 ...

Steel is a widely used material in construction because of its availability, high strength-to-weight ratio, and recyclability. However, steel manufacturing consumes a lot of energy, and there is an increasing demand for more environmentally friendly building materials. Consequently, high-strength steel is becoming more popular as it reduces the...

Society is finally entering a new age of renewable energy development. For the first time it is truly conceivable to power a vast majority of global energy use with a combination of wind, solar, and other forms of low carbon, renewable power. The rise of electrification and so called ”Power to X”, where renewable energy is used to create other...
