Energy efficient renovation (EER) of the owner-occupied building stock is identified as a key effort to pursue in order to mitigate climate change. However, current renovation rates continuously fall behind and a need to foster EER uptake is apparent. As homeowners' behaviour and decision-making are crucial in the context of EER, behavioural...

Oil spills are environmental pollution events that occur due to natural disasters or human activities, resulting in a liquid petroleum hydrocarbon release in the environment, especially into the marine ecosystem. Once oil spills happen, they cause detrimental consequences to the environment, living organisms, and humans. Although there are...

Over the past decade, deep-sea mining (DSM) has received renewed interest due to scarcity of raw materials. Deep-sea mining has been spurred by the need for critical resources to support growing populations, urbanization, high-tech applications and the development of a green energy economy. Nevertheless, an improved understanding of how mining...

Industries such as metal, ceramics and petrochemicals suffer from high temperature spills. Such events exert a unique form of loading in concrete structures that cannot be accurately simulated by heating of samples in an oven. Calcium aluminate cement (CAC) based concrete is the industry standard for such environment, and while much is known...

This paper investigates the linkage between the acute impacts on apex marine mammals with polar cod responses to an oil spill. It proposes a Bayesian network-based model to link these direct and indirect effects on the apex marine mammals. The model predicts a recruitment collapse (for the scenarios considered), causing a higher risk of...

Until now, an extensive design method for mild slopes has not been available. The aim of this thesis is to understand the stability of rock on mild slopes under wave attack for impermeable cores in order to optimize designs. Physical model tests have been executed to study this stability for a 1:8 slope. Mossinkoff (2019) executed physical model...

Mineral oil spills at sea can have many negative consequences. For both preventive and responsive purposes, it is essential to accurately forecast oil spill evolution. Shear diffusion (in this context, i.e. the combined effect of vertical mixing and differentiated horizontal advection of mass) determines for a significant part the evolution of...

The static stability of stones on mild slopes under wave attack is investigated by this research. First it was checked whether there are any numerical models that could be used to describe the stability of mild slopes. As such, there is no existing model at this moment that can accurately model the stability of mild slopes. To model this...

The Deepwater Horizon oil spill damaged some beaches along the Northern Gulf of Mexico (NGoMex) coast more than others, possibly related to the presence of natural protection mechanisms. In order to optimize future mitigation efforts to protect the coast, these mechanisms should be understood. The NGoMex coast is characterized by relatively...

Some storage tank terminals located in hurricane prone regions were heavily struck by hurricanes. An example is the storage tank terminal of Stolthaven Terminals (Stolt-Nielsen Limited) which is located in New-Orleans and was severely struck by Hurricane Katrina and Isaac. Damage to the terminal was caused by high wind pressures, but mainly due...

Traffic management in cities with congestion is a big challenge with still unused opportunities. Intersection control is a corner stone but this should be done in an area-wide context. The dominant traffic process on urban roads is the traffic flow on the intersections. Spill back is a most important cause of malfunctioning networks. The...

This paper introduces the development of a methodology for performance of oil spill risk analysis in coastal zones through a prototype application. The main objective of the research effort is to develop the basis for a tool that can assess risks due to the occurrence of an oil spill event aiming at assisting to the risk response process. The...

Hydrodynamic simulations of tidal currents in the Persian Gulf are presented. Water surface level and velocity have been determined by a Kelvin wave expansion as a new hydrodynamic calibration tool for estimating the dynamical field and flow patterns. In the procedure, leading to the Kelvin wave expansion, data of tidal constituents from co...

On 31 July the company Chimac-Agriphar from Ougrée discharged 64 kilo chlorpyrifos and 12 kilo cypermethrin into the River Meuse, imposing risks to recreation (swimming and fishing), ecology (about 20 to 25 ton fish were killed) and drinking water production. In this study a retrospective risk analysis of this accidental spill was done in order...

Within the project CALPREA at RIKZ application of reliable oil spill models and oil data bases is an important issue. An oil spill model contains in general a transport module, an oil weathering module, an oil data base, and possibly a user-friendly graphical user interface. Recently, de Jong (2004) has made a study of four particle models for...
