Dolgov, Alexey (author)
Cyclic wetting and drying impact the integrity of cohesive clay materials in geotechnical engineering applications. Boom Clay, frequently used in erosion protective layers, presents a critical case study due to its widespread application and the environmental conditions it endures. This research delves into the effects of repeated wetting and...

Desert sand acoustic emissions are produced when a “sonic sand” is sheared locally or by a natural dune slipface avalanche, resulting in a brassy sound between 50 and 400 Hz. This type of sediment exhibits particular granulometric, shape and surface characteristics, due to the grains’ erosion and transport history, and emits sounds when the...

To overcome the problem of wave-induced vessel motions on the crane tip, technologies have been developed to compensate for these motions. Most vessels nowadays, are equipped with dynamic positioning systems, these systems reduce the yaw, surge and sway movement of the vessel. This leaves, the motions roll, pitch and heave uncompensated. To...

The case study of the outer lock head of the New Terneuzen Lock is considered to investigate the behavior of the Boom Clay and to develop an automated method for improving the deformation predictions in a deep excavation format. The initiative to perform this study was the uncertainty in modeling the Boom Clay behavior during the design and the...

Because of the expected return of civil supersonic flight, research is required to update supersonic noise regulations to allow public acceptance of civil supersonic flights. To advise ICAO on whether future supersonic aircraft will be able to comply with current regulations this thesis predicts the noise production of future supersonic...

Offshore structures with large mass are installed and removed by heavy lift vessels. During offshore constructions, two safety-critical interconnected operations take place, the dynamic positioning of the vessel and the lifting of the heavy structure by an immovable boom crane on the vessel. Existing studies on offshore boom crane control...

<br/>This research has shed light on the capability of the HASP model in reproducing the dilatant behaviour of OC clays in drained and undrained conditions. The model is formulated by employing a combined hardening rule and uses the void ratio as a state variable while maintaining the simplicity of the MCC model. However, a sensitivity analysis...

OPERA-PU-TUD321d<br/>Radioactive substances and ionizing radiation are used in medicine, industry, agriculture, re- search, education and electricity production. This generates radioactive waste. In the Netherlands, this waste is collected, treated and stored by COVRA (Centrale Organisatie Voor Radioactief Afval). After interim storage for a...

This research project aims at obtaining a better understanding of vertically translating the wing and the related wing-body interference effects on the drag and sonic boom. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis using the Euler equations has been used to evaluate an airplane with different vertical wing placements at a lift coefficient of 0...

The use of deployable structures for space telescopes has the advantage of enabling options to improve their optical performance and reducing the launch volume. The Deployable Space Telescope (DST), which is currently developed by the Space Systems Engineering (SSE) department, will make use of a high precision deployable structure to extend the...

Disposal of spent nuclear fuel and long lived radioactive waste in deep clay geological formations is one of the promising options worldwide. In this concept of the geological disposal system, the Boom Clay is considered as a potential host rock when designing a generic waste repository in the Netherlands. For design and evaluation of a...

In order for Jumbo to stay competitive in the offshore market, it's heavy lift vessels should be able to take on a wide range of lifting purposes. This can range from installation of transition pieces for wind turbines to installing modules of fpso's and platforms. One of the demands from the offshore market requires large lifting heights. It is...

This thesis describes the geomechanical unloading behaviour of Boom clay for excavations. The Boom clay is of specific interest for the completion of the motorway ring around Antwerp. Many deep excavations in the Boom clay have to be performed, but the clay’s behaviour when unloaded is not fully understood to date. To gain better understanding...
