A collection of Prime Cultural Heritage artefacts consisting of Egyptian late Middle Kingdom figurines (c. 1850–1700 BCE), made of unfired clay and covered in inscriptions, is kept at the Royal Museums of Art and History (RMAH) in Brussels, Belgium. Several of these hieratic inscriptions curse enemies of the Egyptian state, including...

This paper presents an investigation of coupled thermal, hydraulic, and chemical behavior of a compacted bentonite buffer under the heating and hydration conditions of geological disposal of high-level nuclear waste. The study presented provides further insight into the evolution of hydro-geochemistry of the compacted bentonite and the clay...

In recent years, seismic assessment of existing unreinforced masonry (URM) structures is being increasingly based on nonlinear methods. The in-plane displacement capacity represents one of the most crucial yet still debated features of the nonlinear behaviour of URM piers. International codes often employ empirical models to estimate the pier...

OPERA-PU-TUD321d
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...

In recent times, interest in dynamically installed foundation systems for deep-sea construction has increased; however, these foundation systems are still under development and need quantification of various soil parameters with different perspectives. For the design of dynamically installed foundations, it is essential to assess the strain...

Cation exchange is an interfacial process during which cations on a clay surface are replaced by other cations. This study investigates the effect of oil type and composition on cation exchange on rock surfaces, relevant for a variety of oil-recovery processes. We perform experiments in which brine with a different composition than that of 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...

Excessive differential settlement along bridge approach is commonly found in the lower central region of Thailand. To overcome the differential settlement problem, engineers have developed different types of bridge approach structure and improved design procedures. Two types of bridge approach structure are currently used in Thailand, including...

When it comes to flood protection, the established method is to use impermeable material in dikes, to prevent seepage. This material is usually some kind of clay soil which is considered as impermeable and erosion-resistant. Dispite that, in many occasions not only seepage, but the failure of the dam occured due to surface erosion, because these...

In the Bloemendalerpolder two test embankments were constructed in 2010 to study the long term behaviour of embankments on very soft soils with respect to settlement and lateral pile loading resulting from horizontal soil deformations. A detailed description of the test embankments, performed soil investigation, laboratory tests and...

The presence of micropollutants, especially pharmaceuticals, in wastewater has become a significant concern to both the water treatment industry as well as consumers. A new method of treatment was developed to curb this problem. The use of polymers as flocculants and combining them with materials helped to reduce the concentration of these...

In dredging, trenching, (deep sea) mining, drilling, tunnel boring and many other applications, sand, clay or rock has to be excavated. The productions (and thus the dimensions) of the excavating equipment range from mm3/sec - cm3/sec to m3/sec. In oil drilling layers with a thickness of a magnitude of 0.2 mm are cut, while in dredging this can...
