Raue, Timothy (author)
This thesis introduces a new computational methodology to solve partial differential equations within cracked domains, focusing on coupling in-crack physics with the adjacent environment. The crack is represented discretely, allowing to describe explicitly the crack opening, which is a key parameter in the description of the in-crack physics....

Novikov, A. (author)
Safe and sustainable exploitation of geo-energy resources requires not only a comprehensive evaluation of the performance and economics of the corresponding projects but also the assessments of the associated risks, including the risk of induced seismicity. Indeed, seismic events may arise from the reactivation of natural faults and fractures...

In the report the plate buckling verification for stiffened plates subjected to combinations of biaxial in-plane normal stress, in-plane shear stress and out-of-plane loads is performed based on Eurocodes and relevant literature. A normative panel is selected from the structure to go through the calculations step-by-step. As not much literature...

Bio-mediated methods, such as microbially induced carbonate precipitation (MICP) and enzyme induced carbonate precipitation (EICP), have gained considerable attention as alternatives to invasive ground improvement techniques. MICP and EICP use biogeochemical processes to drive carbonate precipitation and bind soil grains, thereby improving the...

In recent years, there has been growing interest in exploring the deployment of wave energy converters (WECs) in remote and harsh environments. However, research in this area remains limited, particularly concerning offshore environments with sea ice. This study focuses on investigating the energy production and economic feasibility of a point...

Integrated electrical power flow simulations are concerned with solving the steady-state load flow problem on integrated transmission and distribution electricity networks. We have developed a framework to run these simulations efficiently, whilst keeping in mind the differences between these network types and accommodating the practical...

In Inverse Optimization (IO), it is hypothesized that experts, when making decisions, implicitly engage in solving an optimization problem. If we can reconstruct this optimization problem using the decision data of the expert, then the behavior of the expert can be emulated. In this thesis, a novel inverse optimization model, Kernel Inverse...

The Dutch energy landscape is becoming more complex due to various interacting factors and uncertainties, creating what are known as "wicked problems" that demand collaborative solutions. This study addresses knowledge gaps by developing a collaborative guide for fostering effective Multi-Stakeholder Collaborations (MSCs) that can endure over...

The increasing popularity of sustainable asphalt pavement stems from its advantageous attributes, such as cost-saving, environmental protection, and reductions in energy and material consumption. Although there is a desire to maximize the reuse of reclaimed asphalt (RA) waste materials in road construction, this is hindered by the poor...

The use of machine learning (ML), especially neural networks, in modeling control systems has shown promise, particularly for systems with complex physics. However, applying these models in safety-critical areas requires reliable verification and control synthesis methods due to their inherent complexity. Formal methods, using stochastic finite...

In the prevailing context of the 21st century, characterized by a predominant reliance on oil and gas, or in the promising future where green energy shapes a human society committed to net-zero emissions, the role of underground fractured formations in energy production and storage remains pivotal and irreplaceable. Geological faults typically...

Tadolini, Cesare (author)
The analysis of integrated front ends operated in the high-frequency regimes is addressed in this work. The analysis of these problems has been a critical bottleneck for decades due to the difficulties arising in adopting full-wave techniques. Assuming, as typical at lower frequencies, that the structures are planar leads to the inaccurate...

Dense suspension flows, both in the natural environment and industrial settings, are complex phenomena with significant implications. From rivers shaping landscapes to industrial processes involving slurry transport, these flows hold a prominent position in numerous sectors. This thesis delves into a specific facet of these intricate flows:...

Current service and installation activities for offshore wind turbines are carried out by jack-up vessels, which eliminate wave disturbances to a large extent. The use of these vessels imposes several disadvantages, including high operational costs and the limitation of operating in restricted water depths. An alternative is a crane mounted on a...

Liapi, Anastasia (author)
A construction project is inherently complex, involving numerous stakeholders, lengthy timelines, and intricate relationships, leading to significant risk potential. The increased complexity of construction projects and the fact that a large percentage of projects are still delivered with significant delays and cost overruns has led to the...

Nuclear power is increasingly seen as a potential solution to the decarbonization of the energy sector in the coming decades. However, one of the main causes of downtime for current-generation nuclear reactors is the phenomenon of Grid-To-Rod-Fretting (GTRF) inside the reactor core. This is predominantly caused by Fluid-Structure Interaction ...

Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV) is an effective and non-intrusive flow measurement technique that is able to provide quantitative information of the full velocity field at a certain instant in time, by tracking each particle individually with high-speed cameras. This permits to have a very high precision in measuring the flow evolutions. The...
