This summer, all over Europe, record temperatures have been measured. From my own country, the Netherlands, the people working at the various meteorology organisations never imagined that the temperature in more than half the country would reach above 40°C. And yet it did! Another example that the climate is changing

Design codes and standards rely on generalised target reliability indices. It is unclear, however, whether these indices are applicable to the specific risk-profile of marine structures. In this study, target reliability indices for quay walls were derived from various risk acceptance criteria, such as economic optimisation, individual risk (IR)...

In structural reliability the dependence structure between random variables is almost exclusively modeled by Gauss (normal or Gaussian) copula; however, this implicit assumption is typically not corroborated. This paper is focusing on time-variant reliability problems with continuous stochastic processes, which are collection of dependent random...

Backside ventilation is one of the most common passive cooling methods of PV modules in the built environment, but might be under constraint when integrating PV in the building envelope. To investigate the short and long term effect of backside ventilation on Building Integrated PV (BIPV) performance and lifespan, a comparative BIPV field test...

It is the purpose of this study to investigate thermal sensation (TS) and thermal comfort (TC) in changing environments. Therefore, 10 subjects stayed in a 30 °C, 50% relative humidity for 30 min in summer clothes and then moved to a 20 °C room where they remained seated for 30 min (Hot to Reference - HR). Similarly, 11 subjects moved from a 10 ...

Bij de evaluatie van de veiligheid van monumentale gebouwen is de focus meestal gericht op de stabiliteit van dragende bouwdelen. Weinig of geen aandacht wordt in de regel besteed aan constructieve onderdelen die tot doel hebben gevelpanelen of ornamenten te verankeren. Toch kan aantasting van ijzeren of stalen verankeringen met de tijd, door...

People are more than 80% of their time indoors. However, in contrast to ambient air, no (legal) limits for indoor particulate matter exist. This paper describes a measurement protocol to determine the yearly averaged indoor PM2,5 concentration and gives reference values for five quality classes: <2,5 μg/m3 (A+), <10 μg/m3 (A: WHO annual advisory...

Within the European project RETROKIT a systemic approach is being developed for retrofitting existing multi-family residential buildings. Modular combination of (semi-) prefabricated technological solutions will be demonstrated in three case studies. The part of the study described here aims to evaluate the consequences of the retrofit process...

Lang geleden werd een bouw gecoördineerd door één persoon: de ‘Masterbuilder’. Bouwwerken werden echter complexer en het was logisch om op enig moment deze rol op te splitsen in een 'architect' en een 'ingenieur'. Bouwwerken zijn door de jaren heen alleen maar complexer geworden en ondertussen werken er soms wel honderden verschillende...

This paper describes the research and development of the Dutch national standard for information levels of BIM. The US-developed "Levels of Development" (LOD) have become increasingly popular in the Netherlands. However, more and more projects felt the need to develop an additional LOD250 and LDO350. It became clear that the Dutch design-and...

Traffic load plays an important role not only in the design of new bridges but also in the reliability assessment of existing structures. Weigh-in-motion systems are used to collect data to determine traffic loads. In this paper, the potential of hybrid nonparametric Bayesian networks (BNs) is demonstrated for modeling the complex data measured...

On January 1st 2012, the European project SUS-CON has been started: “SUStainable, innovative and energy efficient CONcrete, based on the integration of all waste materials” (grant agreement no: 285463). The SUS-CON project aims at developing new technology routes to integrate waste materials in the production cycle of concrete. It should result...

Every four years the Dutch government and the executive agency Rijkswaterstaat (RWS) negotiate a Service Level Agreement (SLA) for the performance of the national roads, waterways and water systems. In this SLA, the required performance of the infrastructure, the risks and the maintenance budget for the coming four years is agreed upon. The...

In the northern part of the Netherlands over de last decades shallow earthquakes are induced due to large scale gas extraction from the Groningen gas field. Earthquakes occur due to the compaction of the reservoir rock, which leads to subsidence at surface and strain build-up in the reservoir rock and existing faults. The induced earthquakes...

In the coming years numerous existing traffic bridges in cities are subject to re-evaluation. In this paper a new probabilistic traffic load model for short-span bridges is proposed. As an example, site-specific weigh-in-motion data from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, is included in the model. The method proposed in this paper allows for a very...

Mensen zijn verschillend. Sommige mensen hebben het snel koud en anderen juist snel te warm. In open kantoren kan de gebruiker de temperatuur nauwelijks instellen. Dit is de oorzaak van veel comfortklachten. Gebouwbeheerders weten zich vaak geen raad met deze klachten en de mogelijke gevolgen voor productiviteit, gezondheid en ziekteverzuim...

Carbonation of concrete at ambient CO2 concentration is a slow process. This makes the testing of the resistance of concrete against carbonation often too slow to be applicable for service life assessments of new structures. Raising the CO2-concentration will accelerate the test but the validity of an increase CO2-level is debated. If not valid,...
