Guidelines dating back 50 years, NASA SP-8007, are employed today in the design of thin-walled launch vehicle structures. Due to advances in materials, structural designs, and manufacturing techniques since the publication of SP-8007, the development of new knockdown factors for contemporary launch vehicle structures is an ongoing subject of...

For a proper three-dimensional reconstruction of histology serial sections, adjustment of the slices is necessary for combining serial sections. Deformations occur due to the sectioning and acquisition pro-cess of the microscopic analysis of histology. By reconstructing the deformations with a transformation of the sections, a mathematical...

Electrical motors have been widely used in various fields for hundreds of years. The asynchronous motor is always an interesting topic due to its advantage of the simple structure, robustness, low maintenance cost and long lifetime. In this research, a special structure rotor is used instead of the classical squirrel cage rotor. To understand...

More and more aquaculture structures are installed in open water and further offshore due to the fact that a variety of conflicts have arisen with coastal water, eco-system, and inhabitants who live nearby. They can additionally benefit from a high energy environment, for example, strong currents and waves could disperse fish farm waste. However...

The present thesis discusses two modelling endeavours that serve to provide insights into both the magnetic and structural dynamics associated with a first order magnetic phase transition. <br/>Firstly, density functional theory has been used to model the lithiation of a supercell of 2x2x2 the conventional unit cell of the ferromagnet Fe2P....

The numerical errors involving the application of the level-set method to a problem can be minimized by fitting a mesh (usually a triangular mesh in two dimensions) to the zero level-set curve defined by the level-set function. These numerical errors depend on two things: the size and skewness of the triangles in the mesh. To fit the mesh, Timo...

Being able to solve numerically partial differential equations is fundamental for engineers to evaluate, optimize and improve industrial equipments. The framework of mimetic finite element methods allows engineers to find solutions characterized by strong conservation properties: this may result in a pointwise divergence free-flow field. However...

The superyacht industry faces an increasing trend of larger dimensions, more open spaces, larger hull openings and more exotic shapes. This puts more effort on the structural design and especially for superyacht longitudinal stiffness is important, since the luxurious interior and delicate systems installed in a superyachts are not allowed to...

In situations with spatial limitations where a bridge is desired, a skewed bridge is a solution. The bridge deck of a skewed bridge has the shape of a parallelogram, in which the angle that remains in the acute corners is defined as the skew angle. This thesis focuses on the design of reinforced concrete skewed slab highway bridges that are...

This thesis is part of a greater effort to use machine learning for the development of flexible and universal unresolved-scale models in large eddy simulation (LES). The novelty in the current work is that a neural network learns to predict the integral forms of the unresolved-scale terms directly without a priori assumptions on the underlying...

The thesis presents a numerical study on dredging induced undrained instability and subsequent static liquefaction of submarine landslides. For the study, a pre-existing hydro-dynamic uncoupled submarine slope numerical model, developed by Molenkamp (1999), has been modified to incorporate a fully hydro-dynamic coupled interaction between...

As a reaction to urban densication, light weight building is an attractive concept for optimally utilizing the capacity of the existing built environment. A common issue paired with light weight construction is the need to engage in vibrational design, in order to minimize hindrance due to human activities such as walking, that cause vibrations...

The subsurface is often modelled as multiple homogeneous soil layers. In reality, the soil properties of these layers are heterogeneous and spatially variable, making it difficult to properly deduct the engineering properties that are required in the design of geotechnical structures. This leads to uncertainty in the design. The probabilistic...

A lot of concrete structuressufferingfrom ASR show a decrease in material properties. However, it is not clear what might be the influence of ASR on structural behavior. Influence of restraint is often ignored in material property measurement, while reinforcement is present as a restraint of ASR expansion in most structures.Thisresults in so...

Engineering fields such as aerospace rely heavily on the Finite Element Method (FEM) as a modelling tool. In combination with the scale and complexity of the structures typically involved here, computational cost remains a traditional issue. To perform FEM analyses of such structures efficiently nonetheless, engineers rely on techniques such as...

The Particle Finite Element Method is a numerical tool that has been introduced more than a decade ago for the solution of engineering problems involving large deformations. <br/>The method falls under the category of mesh-based particle methods, meaning that all information is stored on moving particles that represent the domain under analysis...

The hyperloop system is a new transportation mode, which consists a magnetic levitating capsule-like hyperloop pod and a vacuum tube. Due to small air hindrance, the hyperloop pod is conceived to have a maximum speed of 333 m/s. If such a hyperloop system is to be built underground in soft soils, the hyperloop speed can easily reach the wave...

Damage tolerant designs are necessary for the continuous operation of aircraft engines which are subjected to harsh environmental influences during operation (e.g. large temperatures, foreign object damage of airfoils). One important aspect of damage tolerance is crack propagation which can be investigated via 3D numerical software. This Master...

A new type of finite element model, called the double mesh model is proposed in this thesis. With the level of free expansion as the input, the model is able to simulate the restrained ASR expansion by taking into account the effects of physical restraints. The retrained ASR expansion in reinforced concrete cubes and beams are simulated....

In applying the level-set method in the context of a finite-element method, errors can be minimized by adjusting the mesh to the shape of the level-set curve. The size of the different types of errors that occur depend on the goodness of fit to the zero levelset curve, the skewness of the triangles and the size of the triangles of the mesh. To...
