Soft polymeric gels are susceptible to buckling-induced instabilities due to their great compliance to surface deformations. The instability patterns at soft interfaces have great potential in engineering functional materials with unique surface properties. In this work, we systematically investigated how swelling-induced instability patterns...

Crystalline hydrates of swelling clay minerals (smectites) exhibit a strong coupling between their ion exchange and hydration/dehydration reactions. The uptake or removal of water from smectite interlayers as a result of a change in the environmental conditions also leads to the partitioning of cations. Three factors, the solid ion...

This study investigated the effects of swelling-degradation degree on the rheological properties and thermal pyrolysis behaviors of crumb rubber modified bitumen (CRMB). The equilibrium viscosity of CRMB in 160 ◦Cswelling process is 10.5 Pa·s at 8 h. During the 200℃-degradation procedure, the viscosity increased to a maximum value of 20.58 Pa·s...

This article shows the first spectral analysis of fully-focused Synthetic Aperture Radar (FFSAR) altimetry data with the objective of studying backscatter modulations caused by swells. Swell waves distort the backscatter in altimetry radargrams by means of velocity and range bunching. These swell signatures are visible in the tail of the...

Argillaceous (clay-rich) host formations for radioactive waste geological repositories are extensively researched for their capability to decrease the hydraulic conductivity of fractures over time (i.e. self-sealing). This self-sealing behavior is beneficial in the context of radioactive repositories as the excavation of these spaces unavoidably...

Drought and subsidence are two out of several water-related urban climate adaptation challenges many cities in the Netherlands currently face. Drought is expected to increase in frequency and extent due to climate change. Therefore, drought is likely to further pressurize (subsiding) urban areas in the coming decades. Although the impact of...

The chemo-rheological properties of crumb rubber modified bitumen are always unstable due to the mutable and uncontrollable swelling-degradation degree of crumb rubber in bitumen matrix. The study aimed at exploring the continuous swelling and degradation behaviors of crumb rubber modified bitumen (CRMB) considering the influence of rubber size...

A high resolution partitioned wave hindcast of New Zealand waters is presented together with validation results against 9 buoy deployments that are representative of the local wave climate. An analysis of integrated and partitioned mean wave parameters was conducted together with a study of the correlation between wave height anomalies and...

Porous asphalt pavement is widely used due to its adequate water permeability, noise reduction and skid resistance. The study aims at exploring the potential of using the crumb rubber/styrene–butadienestyrene (CR/SBS) modified bitumen as high-viscosity binder for porous asphalt mixture, and investigating the effect of swelling and degradation...

Crumb rubber modified bitumen (CRMB) can be considered as a binary composite system where rubber particles are embedded in the bitumen matrix. The bitumen-rubber interaction process (mainly swelling) significantly changes the mechanical properties of both bitumen and rubber phases. This study aims to predict the complex moduli of CRMB binders...

Waste tire rubber has been incorporated into asphalt modification for decades due to its various benefits. There are two main mechanisms during bitumen–rubber interaction: rubber swelling and chemical degradation. This study surveys these two processes from the viewpoint of polymer science. The kinetics of rubber dissolution and...

Crumb rubber modified bitumen (CRMB) has been utilized in the asphalt paving industry for decades due to its various benefits. The main mechanisms of bitumen-crumb rubber interaction include rubber particle swelling and chemical degradation. Crumb rubber modifier (CRM) swelling plays a dominant role in controlling the property development of...

Uncertainties exist on the efficiency of CO<sub>2</sub> injection and storage in deep unminable coal seems due to potential reduction in the permeability of coal that is induced by CO<sub>2</sub> adsorption into the coal matrix. In addition, there is a limited knowledge about the stability of CO<sub>2</sub> stored in coal due to changes in...

We present an experimental method to study time-dependent, CO<sub>2</sub>-induced, local topography changes in mm-sized composite samples, plus results showing heterogeneous swelling of coal and shale on the nano- to micrometer scale. These results were obtained using high resolution interferometry measurements of sample topography, combined...

The North Sea is known for its marine activities, which need ocean data for safe operations. The ocean surface is described using the two-dimensional wave spectrum. This ocean wave spectrum can be estimated using wave buoys, wave models or remote sensing techniques. Wave buoys and numerical models are known to contain inaccuracies, which...

Water ingress into cracked concrete structures is a serious problem, as it can cause leakage and reinforcement corrosion and thus reduce functionality and safety of the structures. In this study, the application of water-swelling rubber particles for providing the cracked concrete a self-sealing function was developed. The feasibility of...

Autonomous microrobots ‘swimming’ through bodily fluids promise a major breakthrough in the fields of medicine and surgery. Targeted drug delivery, ablations, stents, implants, and remote sensing applications are among the envisioned applications. One of the biggest challenges in the design of these devices is the propulsion actuator. Within...

A crown wall is a gravity based L- shaped concrete structure on top of a rubble mound breakwater. Functions of a crown wall are: reduction of wave overtopping, enable transport on the breakwater and placement of pipelines on top of the flat surface. Marine contractor Van Oord was awarded to extend a breakwater with a crown wall on top, located...

Low-lying tropical islands are highly vulnerable to the effects of sea-level rise and climate change. Most pressing is the threat posed to their fresh water supplies by wave-induced flooding. This thesis attempts to generalize previous site-specific studies of flooding on coral atolls and apply it in a framework that can be used for early...
