A flexible riser is a multi-layered pipe device which enables deep-water production by connecting seabed facilities to floating vessels. To withstand huge hydro-static pressure, it is required to have strong collapse capacities. At present, the collapse capacity of a flexible riser is designed based on a "wet collapse'' concept, in which the...

In the community of petroleum engineering, the use of surrogate modelling techniques have recently gained more and more popularity to improve the efficiency of history matching. However, it is still not possible to fully utilize their potential in realistic applications. One of the challenges is to retain high accuracy while increasing the...

The establishment of areas for safe automated driving in mixed-traffic settings is one major barrier in the development and adoption of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs). This work investigates safety in the interactions between AVs, human-driven vehicles, and vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians in a simulated urban environment in the...

This study provides new insights in the problem of lumpy aircraft spare parts demands by incorporating new drivers that have an impact on the failure patterns of aircraft components. The study introduces a model and presents corresponding results that obtains component failure characteristics based on data from an aircraft manufacturer. A Monte...

Synchronisation is the remarkable phenomenon of in-phase movement of coupled oscillators during a prolonged period of time, which even occurs when these have different natural frequencies. This property is used in many fields like physics, biology and chemistry, to model various system behaviours, for instance: circadian rhythms in the chemistry...

One of the challenges associated with offshore wind turbine installations is the mating phase. Aligning a transition piece onto its substructure under offshore conditions is a complicated and time-consuming procedure. Another issue found in a number of commissioned offshore wind turbines is related to the sustainability of the connection between...

The Dutch railway system is subject to maintenance, which is carried out by a group of rail contractors who need parking space to park and prepare trains in between projects. The objective of this study is to minimise the total costs as a result of the distance travelled by maintenance trains and the preservation of the included parking...

The case study consist of a small underground mine with a small mining crew. The vehicle park is relatively large, and therefore it is necessary to establish the added value of additional miners or equipment for short-term production planning purposes, assuming that staff size currently limits production capacity to find out if staff size is...

Underwater slope failure is a common problem in the fields of geotechnical, dredging and hydraulic engineering, posing a major risk to submerged infrastructure and flood defences along coasts, rivers, and lakes. The term ‘flow slide’ refers to a specific, complex failure mechanism of underwater slopes, which occurs when a substantial amount of...

To support Van Oord’s path towards a low-emission future fleet, this thesis has focused on the technical, environmental and economic impact of a methanol hybrid power plant design for new-build offshore working vessels (OWVs). These Dynamic-Positioning (DP) vessels are known for their large and dynamic power plants and have to limit their NOx...

Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) operate in the harsh marine environment with limited accessibility and maintainability. Not only failures are more likely to occur than in land-based turbines, but also corrective maintenance is more expensive. In the present study, a mixed model and signal-based Fault Diagnosis (FD) architecture is...

Cyclodextrins (CDs) are widely used in drug delivery, catalysis, food and separation processes. In this work, a comprehensive simulation study on the diffusion of the native α-, β- and γ-CDs in aqueous solutions is carried out using Molecular Dynamics simulations. The effect of the system size on the computed self-diffusivity is investigated...

An implicit contact algorithm for the material point method (MPM) has been developed to simulate contact. This allows recently developed implicit MPM codes to simulate large-scale deformations and interaction with external bodies. The performance of the method has been investigated and compared to an existing explicit method using benchmark...

A combined density functional theory and molecular dynamics approach is employed to study modifications of graphene at atomistic level for better H<sub>2</sub> storage. The study reveals H<sub>2</sub> desorption from hydrogenated defective graphene structure, V<sub>222</sub>, to be exothermic. H<sub>2</sub> adsorption and desorption processes...

For the first time, this study developed a novel model, named GeoMicro3D, to simulate the reaction process and microstructure formation of alkali-activated slag. The GeoMicro3D model consists of four modules that are designed to simulate, respectively: (i) the initial spatial distribution of real-shape slag particles in alkaline activator, ...

To assess the impact of implementing energy efficiency and renewable energy measures, urban building energy models are emerging. In these models, due to the lack of data, the natural variability of the existing building stock is often highly underestimated and uncertainty on the simulated energy use arises. Therefore, this work proposes a...

Railway ballasted track stiffness is an important indicator to identify supporting condition that ensures that the facility is well designed and functioned. Although many studies have been performed on track stiffness based on experimental tests and finite-element methods, the factors influencing the track stiffness have not been completely...

Climatic conditions and vegetation cover influence water flux in a dike, and potentially the dike stability. A comprehensive numerical simulation is computationally too expensive to be used for the near real-time analysis of a dike network. Therefore, this study investigates a random forest (RF) regressor to build a data-driven surrogate for a...

Organic Rankine cycle (ORC) systems are a readily available technology to convert thermal energy from renewable- and waste heat sources into electricity. However, their thermal performance is relatively low due to the low temperature of the available heat sources, but more importantly, due to the low efficiency of the employed expander....
