Reefers are refrigerated containers commonly used for transporting perishable goods such as meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit. Due to the growth in reefer usage, energy consumption of reefers at container terminals grows significantly to 40% of the total energy consumption at terminals. When reefers are connected to the electricity grid, peaks...

A liquid film falling vertically along a wall results in the formation of waves at the liquid-gas interface. The principal forces in these flows are gravity, viscosity, and surface tension, which are characterized by the Reynolds
number, Re and the Kapitza number, Ka. Experimental characterization of the film flows for high viscosity liquids...

Aiming to enhance the performance of the industrial design process, structural optimization
techniques have been proposed as an alternative to traditional design and optimization techniques.
They own the potential of achieving an optimal distribution of the material through
the design domain, thus reducing waste loss and weight, and...

Liver cancer causes 700.000 deaths annually. To assess new devices and pre-clinical procedures for treatment, a safe test environment can be provided by a phantom. Phantoms act as a surrogate for certain physical properties of tissue. The purpose of this study is to design, construct and evaluate an anthropomorphic liver phantom, which simulates...

The time a naval combatant can be deployed for a mission is limited by its dependency on supplies. At a certain point the ship needs to leave the area of operations to be replenished in a harbour or by a support ship. Moreover, the Royal Netherlands Navy has a societal obligation to reduce its environmental impact, in particular on global...

In 2009 and 2010, two leakages through immersion joints occurred in the First Coen Tunnel near Amsterdam. From the study on t-he cause of these leakages, it followed that there was a potential problem for existing immersed tunnels: failure of the temporary Gina-seal combined with corrosion on the clamping structure of the definitive Omega-seal....

Infant mortality is a significant problem in mooring design. The objective of this thesis is to design a generic fault detection system for mooring line failures, which can accurately detect a mooring line failure within a certain time frame. The research is done through Catenary Arm Leg Mooring (CALM) buoy systems, as this thesis is a Proof of...

Digital Image Correlation analysis is performed to obtain measurements of the crack kinematics of four reinforced concrete beams without shear reinforcement. The results are used to implement the critical shear displacement theory. This new theory proposes that the opening of the critical inclined crack can be considered as a lower bound for the...

The city of Barranquilla can play an important role in the establishment in a multi-modal network. Currently however, issues with navigable depth in the river mouth (Bocas de Ceniza) make it difficult for the larger vessels to enter the port area. Resolving these issues will increase the navigability of the Magdalena river which in turn will...
