CIGS (CuInGaSe2) solar cells are electronic devices that directly transform sunlight into electricity and fall into the category of thin film photovoltaic devices. Currently, this type of solar cell has reached the record in photovoltaic conversion efficiency of around 23.35%. However, the maturity of a PV technology also requires reliability...

In recent years, several fitting techniques have been presented to reconstruct the parameters of a plate from its Lamb wave dispersion curves. Published studies show that these techniques can yield high accuracy results and have the potential of reconstructing several parameters at once. The precision with which parameters can be reconstructed...

Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA) is a standard tool in some high-risk industries (such as the on- and offshore exploration and production and chemical industry). Presently, existing knowledge concerning human error likelihood and human reliability assessment is insufficiently represented in QRAs. In this paper we attempt to implement the...

The assessment of service-proven quay walls subject to corrosion-induced degradation is inherently a time-dependent reliability problem. Two major challenges are the modelling of corrosion and taking into account the decrease of epistemic uncertainty throughout the quay wall’s service life. The main objective of this study is to examine the...

Bolted connections are applied in many aluminium structures. Stainless steel bolts are often preferred over carbon steel bolts in aluminium connections to prevent galvanic corrosion. However, current design standards and guidelines do not allow for using preloaded stainless steel bolts in slip resistant connections, mainly because of a lack of...

The objective of this paper is to explore the value of reliability-based nonlinear finite element analysis (NLFEA) over the currently available, standardized assessment methods. To our knowledge, no studies are available on this subject, and this paper provides a first insight into the value and reliability level of these assessment methods. The...

Estimating and reducing uncertaintyin fatigue test data analysis is a relevant task in order to assess the reliability of a structural connection with respect to fatigue. Several statistical models have been proposed in the literature with the aim of representing the stress range vs. endurance trend of fatigue test data under constant amplitude...

Standards and guidelines for the fatigue design of riveted connections make use of a stress range-endurance (S-N) curve based on the net section stress range regardless of the number and the position of the rivets. Almost all tests on which S-N curves arebased, are performed with a minimum number of rivets. However, the number of rivets in a row...

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...

This paper discusses the methods used in a study on the values of time and reliability in freight transport in the Netherlands. SP surveys were carried out among more than 800 shippers and carriers. A novel feature is that both for the value of time and reliability two additive components are distinguished: a transport cost and a cargo component...

After several major structural incidents in The Netherlands, various initiatives have been started to improve structural safety. Research studies were initiated on the characteristics, causes and consequences of structural incidents. In this paper the results of three of these research studies are compared. Each study uses different data sources...

Existing civil infrastructure represents a large economic value. Within the actions applied to the bridges, the traffic load is, in general, the most significant variable action to be considered when the ultimate limit states are under investigation. Consequently, the traffic load models play an important role in the design of new bridges but...

Previous studies have shown that building, social and personal factors can influence one's perceived health and comfort. The aim of the underlying study was to get a better understanding of the relationships between these factors and perceived comfort. Self-administered questionnaires from 5732 respondents in 59 office buildings and building...

Degassing of groundwater by excess denitrification of agricultural pollution complicates the interpretation of 3H/3He data and hinders the estimation of travel times in nitrate pollution studies. In this study we used a two-phase flow and transport model (STOMP) to evaluate the method presented by Visser (2007a) to interpret degassed 3H/ 3He...

Usually the design of the monitoring system is based on the relation between the monitoring effort and the uncertainty of the information. Often the estimation error standard deviation is used as a criterion for the design. Despite the fact that, for scientists, the standard deviation as a measure of uncertainty is a logical criterion, water...

This paper argues that it is important to study issues concerning trust and reliance when developing systems that are intended to augment cognition. Operators often under-rely on the help of a support system that provides advice or that performs certain cognitive tasks autonomously. The decision to rely on support seems to be largely determined...
