An important aim of the EU-project CargoVibes was to derive exposure-response relationships for the expected annoyance due to vibration among residents living near freight railway lines. This was done based on existing survey data, as well as on some new survey data gathered within the project. To this end, a questionnaire was sent by mail to...

Full probabilistic reliability analysis may be valuable for assessing existing structures. Measures for increasing the safety level are quite costly for existing structures and may be unnecessary when such a decision is grounded on a conservative analysis for determining the structural reliability. This may be avoided by applying a more detailed...

Bridge lifetime pose an important challenge in terms of maintenance for decision makers or asset managers. In this regard Markov chains have been used successfully in practice as models for bridge deterioration. However, one limitation of Markov chains can be the assessment of the transition probabilities. In this paper, we propose an approach...

Chloride induced reinforcement corrosion is increasing due to aging of concrete infra structure. Conventional repairs have poor durability and many fail after less than 10 years. For conven tional repair chloride contaminated concrete is removed, steel is cleaned and new concrete is applied. Leaving chiorides, eg. in pits, corrosion may re...

This paper shows how the European Odysseus project [6] reduces energy/CO2 by improved decision making based on multi-level, semantic, energy configuration/monitoring data fully based on open standards (W3C Linked Data approach / Semantic Web technology) and an open source semantic server (Apache Marmotta) implementing those standards. © 2015 IEEE.

De Oude Kerk in Delft (fig. 112) gaat terug tot 1246 en was oorspronkelijk gebouwd in vulkanisch tufsteen uit de Eifel. Later zijn twee zijbeuken en koor toegevoegd. De westelijke toren werd gebouwd tussen 1325 en 1350. In de l4 eeuw werden de zijbeuken verhoogd tot dezelfde hoogte als het schip, dat zelf in de eerste helft van de 15’ eeuw...

About 90% of persons aged 55 and older would prefer to stay in their current residences as long as possible because older adults value their independence. However, aging-in-place is not always a choice. Recently, the Dutch government tightened the criteria for older adults to be admitted in a nursing home. Throughout the past 5 years TNO was...

Overheating in buildings is an increasingly important issue. Various studies show that local personalized cooling can substantially improve comfort levels while saving energy. Airflows are an efficient approach for local cooling. Fluctuating airflows seem more effective and are potentially perceived more comfortable compared to continuous...

The development of nanomaterials is growing exponentially in the last decade. New discoveries and their applications have taken place in different fields, such as electronics, chemistry, biology and physics. Some innovative nanoproducts have become available also for the conservation of cultural heritage (e.g. nano-Ca(OH)2, nano-SiO2, nano-TiO2,...

Cement based mortars are widely used as adhesive for tiles in building and construction. They have a limited timespan during which a tile can be placed effectively in order to develop sufficient bond strength. This timespan, usually called ’open time’, is controlled, amongst others, by adding water soluble polymers such as methyl cellulose or...

Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) is a durability problem that affects numerous concrete structures woridwide. As the reaction progresses. it might lead to deleterious expansion and cracking. The addition of lithium into fresh concrete is already acknowledged as a preventive method. In existing structures, however, lithium would need to be driven...

Wind loads on permeable building skins are determined by the pressure difference between the external pressures and the pressures inside the cavity. External pressures are given in current building codes for a wide variety of building shapes, location on the building envelope, effects of detailing etcetera. For the pressures in the cavity and...

Secondary resources containing (catcium) atuminium-silicate phases, e.g., fly ash, slag or bottom ash are used as precursor for binders such as geopolymers. Because secondary resources can be highly variable in terms of their potential to dissolve and form reaction products, analytical methods are needed to evaluate their potential as a...

In het kader van de samenwerking MonumentenKennis is niet alleen nieuw onderzoek gedaan, maar ook aandacht besteed aan kennisoverdracht op het gebied van natuursteen. Het betreft: • Het opstellen van een handleiding voor het herkennen van natuursteen gebruikt in Nederlands gebouwd erfgoed tot ca. 1840. • Het maken van een handleiding voor het...

Wind-induced pressure differences over rain screens are determined by the external pressures and the pressures inside the cavity. Minimizing this pressure difference decreases the risk of water leakage and also helps to minimize the local loads on the façade elements. Current rules to determine the wind loads on such structures are based on very...
