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...

In Walla Walla, Washington the Mill Creek flows through an outdated concrete spillway that needs renovation. The city council of Walla Walla saw this as an opportunity to further develop this channel. Their desires include conservation of the fish ladder, enabling to sail by boat and to prettify the spillway. A Sobek 1D model was built to give a...

Many authors already made an attempt to understand the effect of load-cycling on material strength and the evolution of elastic parameters. However, until now there was no study on the effect of load-cycling on the evolution of elastic parameters over the complete stress strain curve, i.e. the linear elastic regime, the fracturing regime, and...

Rev is the final design product service system that can help athletes rehabilitate from traumatic ankle injuries. It does so by calibrating strength and stability of the unaffected leg and comparing it with exercises of the affected leg.Therefore communicating strength percentages back to the athlete. This enables the ultimate goal of increasing...

This thesis report presents an investigation of a soil improvement technique that is being executed for a Van Oord project in Kuwait. The soil is improved by the use of a column supported embankment, consisting of sand columns installed in a soft soil layer and a sand platform. The efficiency of this method is defined in terms of stress transfer...
