This study deals with ductile fracture prediction of a marine steel using new damage functions. The stress triaxiality and Lode angle are known to be governing parameters on the ductile fracture. Recent research has reported that loading path is also one of the important parameters. A three-dimensional fracture strain surface for EH36 steel was...

It’s hard to imagine life without smartphones. In many ways, they make our lives easier, more convenient and more productive. But when it comes to smartphone usage while driving, it is clear that sensible solutions are needed to make roads safer for us all.

The current theory of ASR gel formation in concrete between silicic acid anions with cations and is unable to explain the differences in concentration required for gel formation between e.g. potassium and sodium or the effect of calcium on the gel formation. In this paper, a new gelation mechanism is explained by means of a condensation between...

Frisse lucht zorgt voor een goede en diepere slaap. Dus bieden veel kinderdagverblijven de mogelijkheid om kleintjes buiten te laten slapen. Kan dat onder alle weersomstandigheden? En waar let je op als het bijvoorbeeld pijpenstelen regent of vriest dat het kraakt?

Onze buitenlucht is schoner dan de lucht in woningen. Deze treurige constatering werd onlangs gedaan tijdens de 'Dag van de Binnenlucht', die werd georganiseerd door onder andere de VLA en Isso. Klopt het wel? We belden TNO-onderzoeker Piet Jacobs op om hem hierover aan de tand te voelen.

Design methods for marine structures have evolved into load and resistance factor design, however existing partial safety factors related to berthing velocity and loads have not been verified and validated by measurement campaigns. In this study, field observations of modern seagoing vessels berthing in Bremerhaven, Rotterdam and Wilhelmshaven...

De Afsluitdijk is op dit moment ruim tachtig jaar oud en heeft ons al die jaren goed tegen de krachten en invloeden van het zeewater beschermd (foto 1 en 2). Rijkswaterstaat gaat de Afsluitdijk nu een grote opknapbeurt geven, zodat hij tot ten minste 2050 mee kan. De dijk wordt zodanig versterkt dat hij bestand is tegen het stijgende zeewater....

In this paper, identification of energy dissipation in the joints of a lab-scale structure is accomplished. The identification is carried out by means of an energy flow analysis and experimental data. The devised procedure enables to formulate an energy balance in the vicinity of the joints to obtain local energy dissipation. In this paper, a...

Verschillende decentrale overheden in Nederland hebben in de afgelopen jaren aangegeven dat de huidige regelgeving aangaande de aan te houden verkeersbelasting voor de beoordeling van bestaande constructies leidt tot een veiligheidsniveau dat rekenkundig onvoldoende is. In opdracht van Gemeente Rotterdam is door TNO een onderzoek uitgevoerd...

Recirculation hoods equipped with carbon and plasma filters are becoming more and more popular. The aim of this study is to determine the effectiveness of recirculation hoods with regard to PM2 5 and NOx removal in a 26 m3 lab kitchen with a gas furnace. With the carbon filter PM2 5 is reduced for about 30%. A fresh carbon filter removed about...

Reliability analysis is a crucial phase in assessing the safety status of new and existing structures. One of its applications is to predict the fatigue life of fatigue prone details. Two models are used to formulate the fatigue limit state: S-N curves in combination with Palmgren-Miner damage accumulation rule and linear elastic fracture...

There is growing consensus among governments, businesses and consumers about climate change and the required energy transition. At the Paris climate conference (COP21) in December 2015, 195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal. The agreement sets out a global action plan to put the world on track to...

Within hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) predictive energy management strategies (EMSs) have the potential to reduce the fuel consumption compared to conventional EMSs, where the drive cycle is unknown. Typically, predictive EMSs require a future vehicle speed profile prediction. However, when prediction is inaccurate, the systems fuel reduction...

Mechanical behaviour of a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) tank and the thermodynamic behaviour of its containment under extreme heat load - for instance when subjected to external fire source as might occur during an accident -Are extremely important when addressing safety concerns. In a scenario where external fire is present and consequent release...

Testing for the chloride threshold (also called critical chloride content) for corrosion initiation of steel in concrete has been found difficult and, at best, time consuming. Nevertheless, the chloride threshold is an important parameter in service life design of new structures and for evaluation of the remaining service life of existing...

Age and ageing can be felt as negative occurrences. For monuments, however, old age is traditionally considered to be a positive quality. Without a certain age, the designation "monument" hardly applies. Ageing can be seen as the work of time, which has always been valued: ageing was sometimes even artificially induced in the past. In this paper...

The currently available treatment techniques for concrete structures affected by alkali-silica reaction (ASR) are limited and electrochemical lithium migration has been proposed as an alternative. Lithium compounds have shown to have beneficial effects on ASR expansion when used as admixtures to fresh concrete. During the electrochemical...

Portland cement production is an energy-intensive process responsible for a significant share of the total CO2 production. Its replacement with low carbon binders from by-products of industrial processes is a sustainable alternative for innovative construction materials. In addition, the combination of low carbon binders with recycled aggregates...

In the small scale LNG infrastructure, composite materials are scarcely employed. Potentially, cost effective solutions for LNG applications could be developed thanks to the advantages of composite materials over metals such as weight savings, design flexibility and recyclability. The research presented in this paper focuses on the mechanical...
