Depending on the alloy composition, intercritical annealing may provide different phases in the microstructure. For low-alloyed dual-phase (DP) steels it is usually ferrite and martensite, while for medium-Mn steels retained austenite is also formed. In a present study, a wide intercritical temperature range was applied to a 5% Mn steel to...

This master thesis explores how ports, such as Hamburg, are adapting their logistics to enhance supply chain efficiency, with a specific focus on the evolving global first-mile fresh fruit reefer (GFFR) cold chain. It discusses the use of value stream mapping (VSM) from an inside-out perspective to analyze operations, challenges, and...

Renders and plasters have significant functions in buildings. Their functionality is closely related to their properties, which depend on the mortar itself, the application technology, the interaction with the environment and the substrate. There are many basic characteristics that influence the performance of renders and plasters; however,...

Formulation of quaternary blended system containing ordinary Portland cement or clinker, slag, limestone and calcined clay (LC2) appeared to be a viable approach to developing low-clinker cements without severely sacrificing mechanical performance at later ages. This paper investigates the effect of two material parameters, i.e., LC2-to-slag...

The Dutch government (specifically the ‘Rijksrederij’, the governmental shipping company) owns a fleet of just under 100 ships that are equipped to service the internal waterways and parts of the North Sea. Think in this context of e.g. Coast Guard ships, ships that help to fight oil accidents or ships that maintain buoys. Just after the COVID...

This paper aims to provide a systematical review of the available printing strategies, sustainable cementitious materials and characterization methods for extrusion-based 3D concrete printing (3DCP). The printing strategies, consisting of printing setup, process, and material requirements, were summarized initially. In the material aspect,...

Thermal ice pressure is one of the eight ice loads to consider for the support structure design of bottom-fixed offshore wind turbines defined by international standard IEC 61400031. Temperature changes in ice drive its deformation and cause structures restricting expansion to experience loading. The effective coefficient of thermal expansion ...

The Volkerak-Zoommeer is a former estuary located the Rhine Meuse Delta in the southwestern part of the Netherlands. After the completion of the Volkerakdam, Philipsdam and Oesterdam as part of the Delta Works, this estuary was cut of from the Oosterschelde and a fresh water lake was formed in a sea water environment. This new lake became the...

Securing fresh water supply on the Dutch Caribbean islands, former colonial overseas territories of The Netherlands from the 17th century, always has been, and still is, a challenge. Between 1904 and 1915 the cartographers Werbata and Jonckheer drew the first topographical maps of the islands. Detailed data was needed for the (re-)development of...

Fresh concrete needs vibration to compact, fill the mould and reach a dense state. During the compaction process, coarse aggregates (CAs) tend to settle, affecting the homogeneity and eventually the long-term durability of hardened concrete. In this study, a 3-D, multi-phase numerical model for fresh concrete is developed for better...

The rapid growth in world population and increasing demands have led to the lack of fresh water, taking a toll on several of earths reserves, mainly the fresh water supply reserves. Water stress deters economic growth, leads to conflicts and has a direct impact on the health of humans. Studies show the trends in the<br/>increase of water...

In southwestern Bangladesh, clean drinking water is scarce, since rainwater is only available during the monsoon, pond water is often bacteriologically polluted, and groundwater may exhibit high salinity and arsenic levels. Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) might potentially provide safe drinking water by storing abundant freshwater from the wet...

This paper presents the results of an experimental study performed to investigate the effect of activator modulus (SiO<sub>2</sub>/Na<sub>2</sub>O) and slag addition on the fresh and hardened properties of alkali-activated fly ash/slag (AAFS) pastes. Four activator moduli (SiO<sub>2</sub> /Na<sub>2</sub>O), i.e., 0.0, 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0, and...

The Nile Delta Aquifer (NDA) is threatened by salt water intrusion (SWI). This article demonstrates an approach for identifying critical salinity concentration zones using a three-dimensional (3D) variable-density groundwater flow model in the NDA. An innovative procedure is presented for the delineation of salinity concentration in 2010 by...

Thermoplastic polyurethane (PU) polymers with different chemical compositions were synthesized and casted to films, and their water vapor barrier properties at different range of relative humidity (RH) were characterized. The water vapor permeability (WVP) of packaging films is one of their most important properties to identify their...

As Egypt's population increases, the demand for fresh groundwater extraction will intensify. Consequently, the groundwater quality will deteriorate, including an increase in salinization. On the other hand, salinization caused by saltwater intrusion in the coastal Nile Delta Aquifer (NDA) is also threatening the groundwater resources. The aim...

Globally, at each river mouth freshwater is discharged to coastal waters. At each river mouth a freshwater plume is formed. These fresh water plumes are also known as the regions of freshwater influence (or ROFI’s). Furthermore, the freshwater plume will affect local coastal water levels. In order to improve global flood forecasting, research on...
