In this thesis a model is set up to assess the economic viability of early stage buoyancy design concepts. The main research question is to find out if a versatile design approach to the buoyancy lifting concept, i.e. being able to take on multiple projects, can result in an economical viable solution for decommissioning offshore platform...

Railway transport plays a vital role in a country’s economic growth. Derailments result in loss of life, damage to rolling stock, service disruptions and harm the environment leading to the decrease in economic growth of a country. Improving train operating safety has been a high priority of the rail industry and the government. Train accidents...

Right before the actual loading of a ship at the quay of steel production company Tata Steel IJmuiden starts, the ship management has to agree upon the stowage plan containing the stowage method and order. However, the company experienced the stowage plan approval was more often accompanied by complex discussion with the ship management. This is...

The standard sign gantries at the highways in the Netherlands have different geometrical and structural characteristics than sign gantries in other countries. The sign gantries have in total four oblique columns instead of two straight columns and have a triangular shaped spatial truss beam. The design loads that are currently taken into account...

The magnetic configuration of a ferromagnetic system with mono-disperse and poly-disperse distribution of magnetic particles with inter-particle interactions has been computed. The analysis is general in nature and applies to all systems containing magnetically interacting particles in a non-magnetic matrix, but has been applied to steel...

Galvanized advanced high strength steels (AHSS) will be the most competitive structural material for automotive applications in the next decade. Oxidation of AHSS during the recrystalization annealing process in a continuous galvanizing line to a large extent influences the quality of zinc coating on the final galvanized steel product. For...

A design strategy for an temporary Olympic arena optimized for a post-event use in steel construction has been researched. Three strategies have been considered, namely relocation, adaptation en up-cycling. A research by design was conducted with a parametric model, where two optimized designs have been compared. Applying several reuse...

Fatigue cracks could occur in the material of offshore and marine structures that are cyclically loaded. These cracks occur due to the cyclic stresses induced by the waves causing premature failure. Monitoring these fatigue cracks using a wireless system gives the opportunity to guarantee the integrity of the structure without manual inspection,...

Modern steel manufacturing techniques make it possible to produce steel with the nominal yield strength up to 1300 MPa for structural purposes. However, the application of very high strength steels is still limited in the civil engineering structures due to lack of knowledge about the effects of the manufacturing process and experimental results...

This thesis studies in-situ the phase transformations during heat treatment of two advanced steels: a supermartensitic stainless steels (SMSS), on which the main focus of this work is, and Fe-C-Mn-Si steels. A magnetic technique, based on the analysis of saturation magnetization, is utilized as the primary analysing tool. The scientific aim of...

This thesis takes an initial step in the research on the long term behaviour of composite-to-metal bonds that are loaded under hygrothermal conditions. It focuses on the response and behaviour of the adhesive in these bonds under moisture and loading. The thesis is inconclusive on the effect of loading on the water uptake. The load level and...

The accelerated formation of bainite in presence of martensite is opening a new processing window for the steel industry. However, for a feasible industrial implementation, it is necessary to determine the mechanical behaviour of the steels developed under such conditions. This study focuses on analysing the effects of the formation of...

This work investigates the synergetic effect of zinc aluminum polyphosphate (ZAPP) and 2-mercaptobenzimidazole (MBI) on the corrosion protection of mild steel coated with a solvent-borne epoxy-polyamide layer. The magnitude and trend of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy data over 70-d immersion in 3.5 wt.% NaCl solution indicate superior...

Sufficient liquid feeding under constrained solidification conditions like, those experienced in welding and casting, is vital to avoid solidification cracking. We present the results of unique in-situ experimental observations of liquid feeding in a solidifying steel melt pool. Liquid feeding was observed in the inter-cellular regions during...

In recently discovered self healing creep steels, open-volume creep cavities are filled by the precipitation of supersaturated solute. These creep cavities form on the grain boundaries oriented perpendicular to the applied stress. The presence of a free surface triggers a flux of solute from the matrix, over the grain boundaries towards the...

Direct microscopic observation of the isothermal bainite evolution in terms of nucleation events, the location of the nuclei, as well as their growth is very valuable for the refinement of models predicting the kinetics of bainite transformation. To this aim, the microstructural evolution in a Fe-0.2C-1.5Mn-2.0Cr alloy during isothermal...
