This study treats the calculation of longitudinal forces on a ship in a lock chamber due to the levelling procedure. The focus will be on the force resulting from the filling jet through the levelling door in the lock, with the main point of interest being the interaction between the ship and the flow resulting from the jet. To understand more...

Erosion and sedimentation are natural processes that occur in natural flows.
If the erosion is a threat for a structure, a bed protection is necessary to stop this process. A bed protection usually consists of relatively large stones.
For calculating the required dimeter of the stones several formulae are available, of which the formula...

People living or working close to the highways are at risk to higher exposure levels of different air pollutants, one of which is particulate matter. The Antea group has recently proposed the addition of Electrostatic Precipitators (or ESPs) on the top of sound barriers adjacent to highways, in order to capture the particulate matter and safely...

The value of travel time saving(VOTTS) is very important in cost benefit analysis(CBA) as it is used to calculate the monetary gain in case of an improvement in transport that leads to reduction in travel time. Although it is easy to directly calculate monetary gains due to a speed improvement, monetary gains due to transport service improvement...

Industry is proposing touch-based solutions to modernize the flight management system, a necessary step to cope with increasing demands on lateral navigation as airspace congestion grows. However, research evaluating touchscreen effectiveness for navigation tasks on the flight deck is lacking. The SIMONA Research Simulator was used, with 12...

As coastal wetland ecosystems, thriving at the interface between land and water,
mangroves can benefit us in lots of ways: providing food and timber, purifying water and sequestrating carbon, protecting coastal area through wave attenuation and coastal stabilization. Regarding the protection of coastal area, mangroves damp the flow in short...

Wave or vehicular action on an ice sheet as well as structural vibrations and thermally induced loading cause cyclic loading on an ice sheet. To better understand the effects of cyclic loading on the strength of sea ice, cyclic loading tests have been conducted at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS). In addition, the corresponding ice...

This thesis assesses the empirical differences between citizen and consumer preferences for (non-market) environmental impacts of government financed renewable energy farms, by designing citizen-based and consumer-based discrete choice experiments. The results indicate that to some extent citizens and consumers make different trade-offs between...

Many regions in the world depend heavily on expensive desalinated water for fresh water consumption, in particular tropical areas. Current mainstream desalination technologies (Reverse Osmosis and Multi-Stage Flash Evaporation) are quite energy intensive and thus costly. Today’s challenge is to design a desalination system that could run with...

When you are ill, a visit to the hospital is often a stressful and worrisome experience. Especially when you are a child and you cannot fully understand or imagine what is going to happen to you. A clinical environment that contains ‘scary’ looking medical equipment does not make you feel at ease. On the contrary, this can be experienced as...

Reactive Programming is a way of programming designed to provide developers with the right abstractions for creating systems that use streams of data. Traditional debug tools lack support for the abstractions provided, causing developers to fallback to the most rudimentary debug tool available: printf-debugging. In this work, we design a...

Dams are an essential part of the Dutch flood defence works to protect the hinterland from flooding by the sea. Sand closures are the construction of closure dams with sand as the main building material. The rising and falling tide generates a current through the closure gap, which increases in strength as the gap becomes smaller. This current...

The aim of this project, a cooperation between TU Delft and Transavia, was to find short-term solutions for the hand luggage problem. A hand luggage problem occurs when the amount of hand luggage brought to the gate exceeds the available space in the cabin. First an overview was created of all insights to indicate the deeper reasoning why hand...

The main question of this thesis is the result of a survey by ‘provincie Zuid-Holland’ (PZH), that has developed a ‘uniform model’ for the assessment of the structural safety of existing prefabricated culverts. PZH is considering the possibility of using generic parameters to decide on the strength of existing culverts in the area. The province...
