For inland ships, state-of-the-art hull form design is to a large extent based on experience, common sense, or adjusting previous designs. The idea therefore arises that further optimization is possible if the right knowledge is available. This knowledge is insufficiently available due to two main reasons. First, research into inland ship...

Many meta-heuristic approaches have been suggested for or applied to the Resource Constrained Project Scheduling Problem (RCPSP). The existence of a number of highly accessible standard benchmark sets has promoted a research focus on finding anything that improves average solution quality, without investigating what effect is responsible for the...

Consideration of soil as a living ecosystem offers the potential for innovative and sustainable solutions to geotechnical problems. This is a new paradigm for many in geotechnical engineering. Realising the potential of this paradigm requires a multidisciplinary approach that embraces biology and geochemistry to develop techniques for beneficial...

Rice husk ash is an attractive pozzolan. Due to its low cost and high activity it has a promising perspective in sustainable construction. In combination with lime, its effect in soil improvement can be equal to cement treatment but its production process consumes much less energy. The main component of the rice husk ash is silica, which is the...

When high strength steels are applicated in dynamically loaded structures, fatigue problems can arise. In most current design codes, the fatigue strength of high strength steels is either not discussed or determined as similar to mild steels. This assumption can be related to the dominance of the crack propagation life during in the total...

Biogrout is a new method for soil reinforcement, which is based on microbialinduced carbonate precipitation. Bacteria and reactants are flushed through the soil, resulting in calcium carbonate precipitation and consequent soil reinforcement. Bacteria are crucially important in the Biogrout process since they catalyse the reaction. Hence, to...

Three-dimensional stacked ICs (3D-SICs) based on Through-Silicon Vias (TSVs) is an emerging technology. It provides heterogeneous integration, higher performance and bandwidth, and lower power consumption. However, 3D-SICs suffer from lower compound yield, especially those based on Wafer-to-Wafer (W2W) stacking. In addition, testability of such...
