Currently, most of the modular building can be fabricated off-site, except for the stability system. Therefore, the question arises: Could modules be designed such that there is no need for an additional stability system? As modules are typically built in a rectangular shape, incorporating stability elements such as bracings along the longer...

In the construction industry, composite structures combining concrete and steel are commonly employed in floor systems due to their exceptional performance in compression and tension. With a growing emphasis on sustainability and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), this thesis introduces a novel concept: a modularised floor system consisting of...

The integration of biological and (bio-)geochemical processes in soils is posed to become the next transformative practice in geotechnical engineering. Soil Sealing by Enhanced Aluminium and dissolved organic matter Leaching, also known as SoSEAL, is inspired by a natural soil formation process, called Podzolization. This process results in the...

Nano-metal materials have received considerable attention because of their promising performance in wide bandgap semiconductor packaging. In this study, molecular dynamics (MD) simulation was performed to simulate the nano-Cu sintering mechanism and the subsequent mechanical behaviors. Hybrid sintering, comprising nanosphere (NS) and...

Aortic valve disease is often treated with bioprosthetic valves. An alternative treatment is aortic valve neocuspidization which is a relatively new reparative procedure whereby the three aortic cusps are replaced with patient pericardium or bovine tissues. Recent research indicates that aortic blood flow is disturbed, and turbulence effects...

Background: <br/>Ischemic stroke is a major cause of death worldwide. Atherosclerosis in the carotid arteries is an established predictor of these events. FSI shows its advantage in simulating the hemodynamic environments due to involving the multiphysics coupling of fluid dynamics and structural mechanics regulations. Therefore, the aim of this...

Both preloaded and injected bolted connections are commonly used in steel bridges in The Netherlands. Where preloaded bolted connections are already used for a longer time, the injection of bolt holes is a method used from the 1970s onwards. Injection of bolts became a good alternative for the replacement of riveted connections. This injection...

Atherosclerosis is an arterial condition characterized by the accumulation mainly of lipid tissue, resulting in the narrowing and stiffening of arteries. It is the leading cause of death among cardiovascular diseases and its development has been associated with wall shear (WSS) and wall mechanical stress (WMS). This study aimed to analyse WSS...

Large-diameter monopiles serve as foundations for offshore wind turbines (OWT), and the diameters are now up to 10 meters. These monopiles exhibit lower embedded length-to-diameter (L/D) ratios compared to the conventional monopile that is widely employed in offshore oil and gas platforms. They undergo rotation when subjected to lateral loading...

In recent times, soft matter has gained significant interest among researchers in the fields of biomechanics and biomedicine, especially in areas like soft robotics and biopolymers, due to its remarkable ability to undergo substantial deformations. Soft robotics often requires materials that can flexibly adapt to or mimic the movements of living...

Cracks that develop in concrete due to tensile stresses can lead to the corrosion of embedded reinforcing steel, which is a primary cause of concrete deterioration. It's common practice to introduce additional reinforcement to limit crack width in concrete. Another potential solution involves partially substituting concrete with alternative...

The thixotropic properties of contemporary mortars allow the insertion of mortar in small vertical seams by using a mortar pump without the need for traditional formwork. In such a seam, a vertical mortar connection for the transfer of shear forces can be created by simply adding a profile to the mortar-to-concrete interfaces. In this way a...

The study delves into the crucial role of undrained shear strength in the stability of civil engineering projects involving soft soils. It explores the enhancement of this strength through (pre)loading in conjunction with Prefabricated Vertical Drains (PVDs). The Stress History and Normalized Soil Engineering Properties (SHANSEP) framework is...

This thesis discusses the characterization of the undrained shear strength, S_u from the net cone resistance, q_net of clay in Dutch sites using Hierarchical Bayesian Modelling (HBM). The performance of the HBM is compared with the current practice methods of the site characterization which propose either the use of only site–specific...

Utilizing waste and wood pellets in gasification reactors is a promising solution to the waste and energy problem. However, plant shutdowns often occur due to failures in the feedstock handling systems. Unfortunately, research focusing on the flow properties and the impact of mechanical degradation on the flow properties of pellets is lacking....

Bent up bars were prescribed as shear reinforcement in the first half of the twentieth century, stirrups after the 1960’s. In current Eurocode, bent up bars can be applied again, but restrictions with respect to the maximum shear strength should be followed. Goal of this report is to provide background for this shear strength restriction and...

Operating in real-world conditions, modern large capacity wind turbines often experience off-design situations, enduring dynamic loads characterized by complex unsteady aerodynamics. Key among the challenges in predicting these dynamic loads is understanding the effects of wind shear and turbulence, both individually and in their complex...

Ascending thoracic aortic aneurysm is a dangerous condition which is hard to locate in patients. CFD can be used to assess someone’s risk of suffering from such an aneurysm and also to assess any possible relation of an aneurysm with relevant parameters, like the shape of the aorta or how blood flows into the aorta.<br/><br/>Existing research on...

Flexural shear failure is a brittle failure mode that can occur in reinforced concrete (RC) beams without stirrups due to the combination of flexural and shear stresses. The failure mode begins with vertical flexural cracks at the bottom of the RC beam central span area due to flexural tensile stresses, followed by diagonal cracks. During...
