This research studies the experimental and numerical behaviour of a simple beam to column joint using a fin-plate welded to an rectangular hollow core section. The following aspects of the joint are investigated:
The resistance of the welded connection.
Defining the force distribution inside the joint.
Improvement of the design...

The Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) was a time of relatively abrupt climate change with intensive atmospheric greenhouse warming of 5 - 8˚C and is regarded as quasi-analogous for the modern anthropogenically-induced global warming. It therefore attracted considerable attention from geologists over the last decades. The PETM occurred 56...

The section of the street, being a constitutive unit of every city, as a design task requires constant reworking and adjustments according to changing socio-political conditions. The society of the 21st century looks different than it used to, the authorities changed along with social stratification models, technological solutions evolved and,...

Defence institutions and military aircraft manufacturers are increasingly exploring the ways to im- prove stealth in new aircraft designs. Design for low observability, more specifically for low Radar Cross-Section is the fundamental design aspect during design of a new military aerial vehicle. Acoustic stealth is also an important...

Accurate cost estimations are important for ship production companies such as Royal IHC. The research discussed is based on a feasibility study for a CBR cost estimation method. The current cost estimation method at IHC is a top-down price-to-win analogy cost estimation. This method uses mainly the weight of the ship as an input variable for the...

Offshore wind energy has very recently begun expanding into subarctic regions with seasonally ice-infested waters like the Baltic Sea. For offshore wind turbines with conventional support structures such as monopiles and jackets that are typically flexible and vertically sided, the phenomenon known as ice-induced vibrations can develop. In...

This report analyzes the history of affordable housing policy decision making and the present system of affordable housing in the United States. At the same time, the cost efficiency of two affordable housing programs is calculated based on the federal affordable housing portfolio of the New York City Housing Authority. Cost efficiency and...

Weaving sections are frequently applied on Dutch freeways. Guidelines are present for designing those freeway weaving sections. However, the origin of these guidelines is unclear and it is not always possible to apply the guidelines. Dutch road designers and road safety experts are searching for methods to evaluate the safety of a (proposed)...

Equivalent cross sections used in few-group nodal diffusion calculations are ob- tained through homogenization of fossile unit cells under infinite medium con- ditions. Reference reaction rates can be accurately reproduced in nodal calcu- lations provided that these unit cells are surrounded by cells of the same type. Large heterogeneities,...

This master thesis investigated the origin of the seemingly perennial (base) flow in a hydrological complex, Inselberg (a type of mountain) dominated catchment in the Municipality of Messica, Manica Province, Mozambique. Smallholders rely on these perennial flows, since they have three growth seasons, two of them during the dry period. This year...

In this master thesis the flow behavior and the performance of a bow tunnel thruster at slow forward vessel motion is studied using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The study analyzes the flow and the turning ability for a cylindrical cross-section and the effect of changing the cross-section of the bow tunnel thruster. At Royal IHC it is...

Characterization of fluid properties is significant in the petroleum engineering practice, especially in solvent-based enhanced oil recovery (SEOR) where the use of injected chemicals should ideally be reduced to the bare minimum in order to minimize the costs and environmental impact of SEOR. However, current techniques for measurement inside...

Due to Shanghai’s unique location, it is sensitive to sea level rise and land subsidence, which are directly related to urban flood protection. Flooding of Shanghai can be caused due to the following three factors: storm surge by typhoon, high tidal levels and sustained higher water levels in the Yangtze River and the Huangpu River as a result...

This research focuses on the analyze of the heterogeneity of the Groningen gas field, i.e. characterization of the reservoir rock and the sealing Zechstein salt on top of the reservoir, by modeling the rock properties of the formations. The aim of this study is twofold, namely to characterize the thickness, shale content and porosity of the...

The objective of this study was to perform a reservoir characterisation of the Posidonia Shale Formation and the Bunter reservoir, through seismic inversion techniques, in order to obtain several rock properties and analyse how their variations are related to changes in depth, lithology and fluid content. Posidonia Shale is interesting as an...

This research follows a fully probabilistic approach in order to estimate the optimal design for a river dike cross-section, taking into account the investment costs. From the theory studied, the failure mechanisms that contribute most to the failure of river dikes are identified. These are overflowing, wave overtopping, piping and inner slope...

An unpublished study by Prof. A.W. Beeby shows the differences in strength capacity between a reinforced concrete beam without shear reinforcement and the same beam with a cut-out section at the middle of the span. The cut-out section exists at the bottom part of the beam while the reinforcement still remains. It remarkably turns out that the...

This study evaluates the potential of the Ice, Cloud and Elevation Satellite (ICESat) with the onboard Geoscience Laser Altimeter System (GLAS) instrument for the monitoring of water levels in river networks. The determination of water level estimations with GLAS altimetry data in the Mekong River (Southeast Asia) is evaluated. The research...

Since the first high strength concrete mixtures were designed in the 1970s, a lot of research is performed. Despite the recommendations that were written, full legislative coverage of high strength concrete remained unavailable. The new Eurocodes are also valid for high strength concrete, so the question rises how high strength concrete can be...
