Delamination is one of the failure modes of composites prone to happen in the case of a car crash. In the early stages of car design, finite element analysis is used as a tool to analyze structural concepts. In order to model delamination in a newly developed material model, it is analyzed in two parts: detection and effects of delamination. To...

Extreme folding damage of open-ended tubular piles could occur during piling in onshore practices. Amazonehaven unique quay wall removal gave the opportunity to study king pile’s failure close to toe. King piles are primary piles in a combined wall system, exposed to static and dynamic load. It is argued that the unexpected pile toe failure have...

This project explores the potential of virtual reality (VR) as a training tool at the crew safety & security training (CSST) department of the Royal Dutch Airlines (KLM). With a research and prototype driven approach, a VR simulation and its integration into the training programme are designed. This simulation aims to improve stress...

This master thesis is built up around two questions. First: Is it possible to calibrate a ductile failure model, where the strain at failure is a function of stress triaxiality and Lode angle, using only a single SENB specimen? The failure model that is referred to describes local failure in a finite element model to simulate ductile fracture....

In this thesis diffuser performance will be simulated with computational fluid dynamics, which will be done with the program Ansys Fluent. The expanding geometry creates an adverse pressure gradient and under certain conditions there will also be separation.

At first a relative simple simulation will be done of a one-directional...

Near free edges of fibre reinforced composite laminates modelled with homogeneous layers, the presence of high gradient interlaminar stresses has been found theoretically. Over a span of nearly 50 years, various methods, including numerical and analytical have been employed for analysis of the high gradient stresses which sometimes exist to an...

At the end of a power transmission line, the cable should be terminated carefully, otherwise it will create problems during the operation. A special equipment called termination is designed to tackle down the problems from cable ends. The main functional part of a termination is a piece of rubber with a cone shape. This rubber cone has a semi...

Knowledge of the state of stress is of significant importance to have a thorough understanding of subsurface geomechanics. The World Stress Map (WSM) is the main source of present-day stress data in Western Europe and indicates a regional NW-SE maximum horizontal stress (SH) trend for the Netherlands. However, for more local studies the WSM...

For the fatigue assessment of welded structures, several design methods are described by the design codes of IIW, Eurocode3 and DNV. The relation between the stress range and cycles to failures were derived from experiments: the SN curves. With the increased accessibility of finite element software to engineers, a more flexible approach emerged:...

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric diagnosis that describes an unusually long stress reaction of at least a month to a traumatic event where a person was threatened by or indirectly exposed to death or serious injury. This stress reaction includes persistent re-experiencing (nightmares, flashbacks, memories), changes in...

Extensive research conducted by the World Health Organization suggests that stress is one of the primary health challenges of the Twenty-First century. When the stress response does not switch off, it not only affects the immune system, but also raises the risk of psychiatric diseases. Recent research elucidates that the risk of schizophrenia...

The electrical properties of a widely used stress control tube for medium voltage heat-shrink joints are examined in this master thesis by using non-destructive laboratory methods. They were determined by use of time domain dielectric response test while changing the DC electric field, temperature and level of humidity.

In order to...

A new flood risk approach for design and testing of primary and secondary flood defence structures in the Netherlands relies on the probability of loss of the water retaining capacity. Determining this probability for levees requires a better understanding of consequences of extreme conditions leading to failure, starting with a study of soil....

This graduation project focuses on the stressful moments of elderly people with dementia, caused by changes in their environment. A research through design approach was followed with the aim to design a product that reduces the amount of stress experienced by the elderly. During the analysis phase, five different studies have been performed to...

This graduation project is the result of researching problems concerning the growing number of people in the inner city of Amsterdam and this project especially explores the topic stress in the city. The proposed approach is created from thorough analysis of the problem and the location. The places in-between the hotspots is the location where...

Research shows that the fatigue strength of a Very High Strength Steel (VHSS) can be significantly negatively effected by welds in a structure. The fatigue lifetime may be extended after cracking occurs by means of fatigue crack repair. A better insight by means of Finite ElementModelling (FEM) can help in understanding the effects of a repair...

Offshore wind power provides an alternative to fossil fuels while negating the effect of visual and auditive distortion of onshore wind turbines. Located several kilometres offshore, the transmission cable resistance becomes substantial. To limit the losses, the voltage in the cables is increased in a substation. As this structure is often the...

Land reclamations in deltaric areas provide space to meet the demand for a safe place to live and work. Sand, a traditional filling material in some locations is becoming scarcer. An alternative filling material is mud. Mud consists of clay, silt, sand, organic material, water and gas. Therefore, it is a versatile material and difficult to...
