The goals of this thesis were to understand the impact of uncertainties and modeling methods on the resulting stress and strain patterns and to see how 3D stress patterns can be linked to what was seen in the field. In 3 types of models simulations were done to carry out this goal. These are the 2D perturbation model, the 2D static model, and...

An overdose of sediment from the Cilalawi River is going into the reservoir Waduk Jatiluhur. This is resulting in the problem of reservoir capacity reduction. With water still coming from different rivers, the future will be inundation. In this matter the recommendation for this problem is check dam(s) and changing land use, stated by the local...

In this report a model for the ingrowth of a prosthesis in a bone will be formulated and simulated. First an overview is given of all the biological processes that are part of this healing process and what external factors can influence this process. Then a first mathematical model is presented in which the mechanical stimuli (one of the...

Today, timber structures are receiving attention more and more. Because of the increasing interest in sustainable construction as well as for other reasons, building industry in Europe is (re)-discovering multi-storey timber structures for construction of mid-rise buildings. In this master’s thesis, an analytical calculation method and modelling...

In the past decades there has been a steep increase in global trade. The current crises however emphasize that trends can change quickly and have a lasting effect on the economy. Due to their large, long term investments, ports in particular need a good understanding of the future state of transport and logistics systems. Scenario based modeling...

Violation of safety procedures by operators is an important cause of accidents. To prevent violations effectively a thorough understanding of the operators' decision making process is required. This research proposes a method to create a personal model that predicts the action the operator would take based on the state of the system. We strive...

Muscle spindle is an organ of proprioception that plays an important role in neuro-muscular control of the human joints. It is composed of intrafusal fibers, the mechanical properties of which determine the afferent response of the spindle. Intrafusal fibers are not homogenous: they are composed of many sarcomeres, have localized fusimotor...

The modelling approaches can go to two extremes: fully data-oriented and fully process oriented. Modelling for diesel engines is not excluded. Usually data-oriented is computational friendly and accurate and the latter is detail and flexible. A high-speed diesel engine model is missing in project JOULES. The objective of this work is to develop...

By its very nature dredging is an environmental impact, since dredging includes the excavation and/or relocation of sediment in a river, sea or estuary. One of the environmental impacts related to dredging is increased suspended sediment concentration (SSC) levels, forming plumes of sediment. These so called dredge plumes originate from spillage...

Induction heating is used to heat offshore pipeline field joints to a required temperature for application of anti-corrosion coatings. The objective of induction heating is to obtain a uniform surface temperature of typically 230 ± 10 °C in a time-span of minutes. The desired temperature profile of the field joint, also known as heat profile is...

Airbus Friedrichshafen is working on the development of a milliNewton HEMPT (High Efficiency
Multistage Plasma Thruster): an electrostatic thruster concept suitable for small satellite
propulsion. An engineering model, the mN-μHEMPT, has been built and tested in vacuum,
generating thrust levels in the range of 1 to 5 mN. Although the...

Monopiles are being used more extensively for offshore wind turbine foundation. Current guidelines on the construction of fixed offshore foundations still base the design of laterally loaded piles in sand on empirical data (p-y curves), originating from the oil and gas industry, from field tests executed in 1974 on 0.61 m diameter piles. However...

Kantoortypologie. Er kunnen geen verschillende typen kantoorgebouw worden onderscheiden, maar wel een aantal typologische eigenschappen, die kenmerkend zijn voor kantoorgebouwen die gebouwd zijn in de periode 1965-1985. Als de constante eigenschappen worden weggelaten, blijven er 19 variabelen over die het kantoorgebouw beschrijven en 18...

The interaction between vegetation and the morphodynamics is considered to be an important process in salt marsh formation and succession. Therefore, the contribution of vegetation modelling on the long-term morphological development of salt marshes is assessed by implementing a vegetation growth model in the morphodynamic modelling software...

Hurricane Sandy (2012), which made landfall in New Jersey on October 29th, made devastating impact on the East Coast of the USA and struck major parts of New York City, including the economic centre of Manhattan. The total damage (in the USA and Caribbean) is in excess of 100 billion US$ with estimates ranging between 78 and 97 billion US$ for...

In this study a modelling approach was investigated that takes into account the effect of short wave grouping on long wave motions, calculating sediment transport and morphology with multiple fractions and a layered bed stratigraphy. After extensive testing and validating this model using data collected in a wave flume in Hannover this model was...

This study shows how historical topographic maps of the Zuid-Limburg mining area can be used to estimate the effects of mining activities on vertical ground surface motion. Coal has been the most important energy supplier for the Netherlands from the 19th century until the discovery of the large Slochteren gas field. After 1960, mining of coal...

Simulation of reservoir operations is important to investigate the effects of climate change and changes in human water demands on water availability in the future. Several reservoir simulation models exist, however it is unknown in which situations what type of model could be applied. This study tries to give an answer to the question how...

The Dutch coast at Egmond is a highly dynamic region where nourishments of sand are necessary to compensate erosion. In comparison with neigbouring coastal areas the necessary nourishment frequency is relatively high. The latest intervention concerns a combined beach- and shoreface nourishment in the spring and summer of 1999. In order to...
