Hydraulic structures are crucial for navigation, water management and flood protection in low-lying coastal and delta regions. Their importance is expected to continue growing in the coming years, because of the consequences of climate change and the continuous development and urbanization of these regions combined with more strict safety...

The microscopic structure of low-permeability tight reservoirs is complicated due to diagenetic processes that impact the pore-fluid distribution and hydraulic properties of tight rocks. As part of an ongoing study of carbon dioxide-enhanced oil and gas recovery (CO2-EOR/EGR) and CO2 sequestration, this research article adopts an integrated...

Formic acid production from CO<sub>2</sub> allows the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions while synthesizing a product with a wide range of applications. CO<sub>2</sub> hydrogenation is challenging due to the cost of transition metal catalysts and the toxicity of the transition elements. In this work, the thermodynamic confinement effects...

The dynamic properties of loose sands under low stresses are an unexplored topic in soil dynamics because these soil conditions are uncommon in most geotechnical structures on Earth. However, low densities and low-stress conditions prevail on other planets, like, for instance, the surface of Mars, for which particular attention is presently...

Understanding the relationship between colloidal building block shape and self-assembled material structure is important for the development of novel materials by self-assembly. In this regard, colloidal superballs are unique building blocks because their shape can smoothly transition between spherical and cubic. Assembly of colloidal...

Atomically engineered artificial lattices are a useful tool for simulating complex quantum phenomena, but have so far been limited to the study of Hamiltonians where electron-electron interactions do not play a role. However, it is precisely the regime in which these interactions do matter where computational times lend simulations a critical...

It has been observed that a trench wall embedded in the soil of the Dead Sea has lost strength and is deteriorating due to brine attack. This phenomenon demonstrates that concrete wall structural stability and durability can be seriously endangered. Yet conventional analysis using macroscopic models is considered an oversimplification, as it...

Injections bolts were initially conceptualized to repair riveted connections in bridges with long service lifetime and now they are widely used in steel and composite structures. Injecting steel-reinforced epoxy resin in bolted connections with oversized holes is a novel approach to enable fast and easy assembly of composite structures while...

People make mistakes. But how does society treat them when they do? For archi- tecture to be involved in this process, is to be at least called arbitrary, as it frames the spaces in which we punish and reform. For architects to design prisons is a paradoxical task because of the conflicting interest and changing goals of its design. Spaces of...

Leliveld, Robert (author)
This thesis describes a study into pairwise particle interactions within a Hele-Shaw geometry, using stop-flow lithography. By exposing a photoreactive mixture to a strong UV-pulse, a hydrogel is formed. The shape of this hydrogel is controlled by masking part of the light beam. This process takes place while the Hele-Shaw channel is placed on...

Polymer glasses have an irregular structure. Among the causes for such complexity are the chemically distinct chain end groups that are the most abundant irregularities in any linear polymer. In this work, we demonstrate that chain end induced defects allow polymer glasses to create confined environments capable of hosting small emissive...

Cells organize their interior through membrane-bound organelles and through membraneless condensates that are formed by liquid–liquid phase separation (LLPS). The complex process of coacervation that is involved in LLPS is challenging to study in living cells. Hence, studying coacervation in cell-mimicking synthetic containers can yield...

Tunnel-boring machine (TBM) tunnelling through an aquifer will generate excess pore water pressures in the soil around the tunnel face. Accurately predicting the magnitude of the excess pore water pressures is significant because it directly determines the effective face support pressure. In this study, an analytical solution for transient...

Manipulating the way in which colloidal particles self-organize is a central challenge in the design of functional soft materials. Meeting this challenge requires the use of building blocks that interact with one another in a highly specific manner. Their fabrication, however, is limited by the complexity of the available synthesis procedures...

Test on a small scaled model is an effective approach to predict the dynamic response of full scale structure under blast loadings. However, the geometric dimensions of specimens cannot simply comply with complete geometrical similarity due to manufacture or test restrictions. It would result in the difference structural performance between...

Self-assembly is a ubiquitous process that can generate complex and functional structures via local interactions among a large set of simpler components. The ability to program the self-assembly pathway of component sets elucidates fundamental physics and enables alternative competitive fabrication technologies. Reprogrammability offers further...

It is known that thermodynamic properties of a system change upon confinement. To know how, is important for modelling of porous media. We propose to use Hill’s systematic thermodynamic analysis of confined systems to describe two-phase equilibrium in a nanopore. The integral pressure, as defined by the compression energy of a small volume,...

The recent advancements in lab-on-a-chip technologies has led to numerous studies on the collective dynamics of micro-particles suspended in a microfluidic channel. The role of hydrodynamics in “self-steering” of the particles in a low Reynolds flows is explicitly dependent only on the particle’s exterior geometry. Thus richer responses can be...

Speelman, Tim (author)
In recent years, the energy transition has led to increasingly higher installed capacities of intermittent renewable energy sources. This has sparked the interest in power-to-fuel technology to store excess renewable energy in the chemical bonds of synthetic fuels. As a highly reactive, turn-key process, plasma-chemical conversion offers a...

The behaviour of square steel tube confined reinforced concrete columns after fire exposure was studied experimentally and numerically in this paper. Eighteen stub columns were first heated following the ISO 834 standard fire including both heating and cooling phases, and were subsequently loaded to failure after cooling to ambient temperature....
