The ambition of European countries to reduce their national greenhouse gas emissions, has been translated in the Netherlands in green procurement policy of the national road administration. An increasing amount of innovative techniques and approaches in road infrastructure construction and maintenance are available, but their contribution to...

Eind vorig jaar werd in Krommenie een fietspad geopend met zonnepanelen in het wegoppervlak. Op deze pilotlocatie worden de wegmodules die door TNO en een aantal partners zijn ontwikkeld getest. Innovator Sten de Wit en lead engineer Stan Klerks, beiden werkzaam bij TNO, vertellen over SolaRoad, een nieuw concept voor de opwekking van duurzame...

Solar power optimizer (twee stuks per element): optimaliseert de opbrengst door een optimum tussen spanning en stroom te realiseren. De optimizers van de verschillende elementen zijn met elkaar verbon den; via een kabel wordt de geljkstroom naar een omvormkast naast het fietspad geleid, waarde stroom wordt omgezet in wisseistroom die aan het net...

Abstract Infrastructures are critical for human society, but vulnerable to climate change. The current body of research on infrastructure adaptation does not adequately account for the interconnectedness of infrastructures, both internally and with one another. We take a step toward addressing this gap through the introduction of a framework for...

The policy on flood risk management in The Netherlands is in transition from a prevention-based approach towards a governance approach, which involves all elements of the safety chain. This implies that many more actors become involved, each with their own perception of the risks. This paper reports on an ongoing interdisciplinary research...

In this paper, the reliability of vibration predictions in civil engineering is quantified. Emphasis is laid on the vibration predictions for road- and rail traffic and vibrations from building activities such as (sheet)pile driving. Several kinds of prediction techniques were investigated: expert opinion, very simple empirical models, dedicated...

The most vulnerable parts of buildings with respect to wind loading are facades and roofs. Current standards on wind loading provide data to determine design loads for the elements in facades and roofs. These data are available for a limited number of simple building shapes. Up to now there is no common procedure to determine local loads for...

The reliability of vibration predictions distinguishes itself from other reliability problems be-cause of the highly non-linear behavior of the underlying models. Over the last two years, a combination of four institutes in the Netherlands has studied the reliability in this type of predictions. For the sake of compar-ison, besides sophisticated...

De windbelasting op een gevelelement wordt bepaald door het drukverschil over het gevelelement en het oppervlak van dat element. Onderzoek is gedaan naar windbelasting op gevelpanelen op verschillende plaatsen in de gevel.

Risk assessment techniques and the probabilistic design concept address the same features, but their synergy is seldom used. This is caused by the often-changing scope of risk assessments with time, and the different views expressed by the designers and the risk assessors. The paper describes in which way steps made during the risk assessment...

Expert judgement studies are a relatively new way of quantifying technical uncertainty in engineering design. Unfortunately they can be time-consuming and costly because they require physical meetings between a group of possibly widely dispersed experts.This paper investigates how web-hosted collaboration or `virtual teaming' can be used to...

This study addresses uncertainties in building performance evaluations and their potential impact on design decisions. Design evolution involves a chain of design decisions. Each decision is supported by input supplied by the various domain experts to the design team at large. The research has focused on the domain expertise of the building...

This paper reports on an analysis of the uncertainty in wind pressure (difference) coefficients, which are assessed on the basis of generic knowledge and experimental data rather than with a specific (wind tunnel) experiment. The analysis is carried out on time averaged pressure coefficients in a specific case, con-cerning a low-rise building in...
