Geological Disposal Facilities (GDF) for radioactive waste will generally rely on clay-rich materials as a host geological formation and/or engineered barrier. Gas will be produced within the GDF, which can build up significant gas pressure and will activate the migration of gas through the clay materials via different transport mechanisms....

This study aimed to assess the suitability of lime treatment for use in dikes in the Netherlands. The effect of this technique on the behavior of a Dutch clay was addressed by comparing the detailed response of lime-treated and natural samples at different lime contents (1.25% and 2.25%) and curing periods. A series of laboratory tests...

The geo-technical quest to couple technical, environmental, and economic innovation, has increased recent attention towards bio-inspired soil strengthening techniques. This thesis presents a proof-of-concept for a coupled clay inhibition and bio-cementation treatment tested in sand-bentonite, referred to as Bio2Cementation. Fine particles are...

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...

Alkali activated concrete is seen as possible contender to alleviate the environmental footprint of the concrete industry. The goal of this research is to evaluate the extend to which ground granulated blast furnace slag and calcined clay-based alkali activated concrete can be utilized in concrete revetment applications with equal performance in...

High-level waste can be radiotoxic for thousands of years and should be carefully handled to prevent accidents. The research for geological disposal of radioactive waste focuses on the construction and durability of a geologic disposal facility in Dutch clays or salts. One of the challenges is assessing these host rocks’ capability to retard...

Continued humanitarian crises have caused the amount of forcibly displaced people to increase rapidly in recent years, creating an urgent need for constructing adequate sheltering to house the displaced. Governments and international organizations attempt to accommodate the growing demands by subsidizing and mass producing temporary transitional...

After water, concrete is the most used substance on the planet. Approximately three tonnes of concrete is produced per person annually (Gagg, 2014). Traditionally, large amounts of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) are needed for the production of concrete. The production of OPC is very energy intensive and therefore a major generator of carbon...

After decades of exploitation of hydrocarbons, the offshore facilities constructed for this purpose are nearing the end of their design life and/or economic operation. According to international law, these offshore structures need to be completely removed. Decommissioning of the substructures often requires for soil to be removed in piles to...

Unconfined compressive strength (S<sub>u</sub>) is one of the soil engineering parameters used in geotechnical designs. Due to the temperature changes caused by some human activities, it is important to study the changes in S<sub>u</sub> at different temperatures. On the other hand, due to the differences in the mineralogical composition of...

The probability of light damage to unprepared, unreinforced masonry structures exposed to induced seismicity due to gas extraction in the north of the Netherlands is still under investigation. Repeated light seismic excitations caused by frequent, light and nearby earthquakes have been linked to economical losses and societal unrest in...

This paper proposes the use of desalination brine as a setting and hydration activator in set-on-demand 3D concrete printing. A series of tests were conducted to investigate the effect of adding different concentrations of desalination brine on stiffness evolution and early-age hydration of Portland cement mortars (PC mixtures) and limestone...

Understanding the behaviour of unreinforced masonry (URM) structures requires in-depth insight into the mechanical properties of its constituents and their interaction under compression, tension, and shear loading. As a result, a complete picture of masonry characteristics, accounting for its full nonlinear response and its statistical...

Reijm, Cornelis (author)
Argillaceous (clay-rich) host formations for radioactive waste geological repositories are extensively researched for their capability to decrease the hydraulic conductivity of fractures over time (i.e. self-sealing). This self-sealing behavior is beneficial in the context of radioactive repositories as the excavation of these spaces unavoidably...

Dikes protect people and lands all around the globe. With rising sea levels, the importance of well-designed dikes has never been more essential. One of the main factors that can compromise the stability of dikes are macro-instabilities. Macro-instabilities can cause dikes to lose their water bearing potential, leading to floods. Methods are...

Large parts of the Netherlands are vulnerable to flooding. Due to the great impact that a flood would have for the Dutch society, The flood safety standards are very strict, which means that the required failure probability of flood defences is very low. To keep the flood risk within acceptable limits of the hinterland, flood embankments are...

The incorporation of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) in cement pastes enables both decreasing CO2 emissions and increasing the concrete durability, notably with a better resistance against chloride ingress and thus retarding the chlorideinduced corrosion of steel rebars. Nevertheless, a better understanding of the chloride fixation...

Chloride binding is an important factor for chloride transport in cementitious materials, which can fix the chloride on the solid phase and decrease the free chloride content. As an alumina-rich supplementary cementitious material, calcined clay can be applied to improve the binding capacity of the system. While the contribution of calcined clay...
