The thesis presents a numerical study on dredging induced undrained instability and subsequent static liquefaction of submarine landslides. For the study, a pre-existing hydro-dynamic uncoupled submarine slope numerical model, developed by Molenkamp (1999), has been modified to incorporate a fully hydro-dynamic coupled interaction between...

This thesis investigates the potential of a large pumping station in IJmuiden, the Nether-lands, for participating in Demand Response. Due to climate change, renewable energy is onthe rise. The intermittency of energy, together with its unpredictable supply, are a big hurdlefor the energy transition. Two methods are promising solutions to this...

Limiting global temperature increase by 1.5 ̊C rather than 2 ̊C reduces the impacts of climate change significantly (Knutti et al., 2015; Schleussner et al., 2016). It requires a rigorous transition of the global energy system in a very short time span. Though, the published energy scenarios that focus on 1.5 ̊C are limited (Peters, 2016). In...

Two important trends can be witnessed in the world of superyachts. Firstly, the luxury landscape is shifting from collecting tangible assets to pursuing exclusive tailor-made experiences. The second trend is the electrification and the use of batteries on superyachts. Due to the increase of emission restrictions, there is more interest towards...

Cellular solids are characteristically excellent energy absorbers due to their capacity to store large amounts of energy through compression. A bioinspired design approach identified the Pomelo fruit (Citrus Maximus) as a biological role model for energy absorption. Fruit peels’ biologically most important functions lies in the need to provide...

Since the problem of global warming has been broadly considered as vital and due to constantly rising oil prices, further fossil fuels exploitation requires diametrical changes immediately. The demand for environmentally friendly improvements does not only entail searching for new resources but also utilizing those which are available and more...

Renewable energy sources, like wind- and solar power, are expected to generate a greater part of the electricity production in the Netherlands each upcoming year. Besides all the advantages, the energy supply of these renewable energy sources fluctuates heavily as they mainly depend on the amount of wind and sun. Therefore, the electricity...

The purpose of this research is to explore the energy balance within an offshore accommodation. The research is done In cooperation with Keppel Verolme BV. and the TU Delft for the department of Building Technology. The offshore accommodation is analysed in terms of structure and energy consumption, as is the typical environmental conditions in...

Parkstad area is suffering building vacancy and population reduction problems which cause this area lost its vitality. At the same time, energy crisis such as rising energy consumption in the world and the depletion of fossil fuels in the near future is much more obvious. People lived in Parkstad have a better understanding of energy crisis than...

Energy waste is an issue of considerable size. Not only at home, but more increasingly so in public spaces. The TU Delft has set itself a number of sizeable energy saving goals for the near future, but with current initiatives focusing mostly on efficiency and responsible sourcing, not much is being done about altering the demand for energy. In...

A mitad is a type of stove used to prepare traditional Ethiopian flatbread called injera. Current electrical mitads are energy inefficient and account for over 8% of Ethiopia’s national electricity consumption. The Magic Mitad bakes high quality injeras and uses up to 45% less electricity. This will help bakeries and households to cut costs and...

In a modern environment users are more dependant on their ability to use their mobile phone for nearly everything. They communicate with almost any device and those devices provide nearly limitless access to for instance a watch or in new applications, a lock. Issues encountered with these devices are the almost always lack the ability to keep...
