This paper discusses the development and first testing of a valid, reliable, functional and simple indicator, that represents the long term effect of short term decisions. Such an indicator can assist counteracting short term views in network level asset management decision making. Short-termism or myopia may occur in cases where service level...

This paper evaluates experiences with applying a linked data approach for coping with the many challenges for information management in asset management from the perspective of National Road Authorities (NRAs). As influential players, NRAs are often the initiators of innovation in the civil infrastruc-ture sector. In this paper we focus on...

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...

A model based indoor climate control concept is developed which improves the indoor comfort while saving energy. The controller developed within the EU-FP7 HERB project will automatically quantify key parameters describing the thermal balance of the building using a limited number of sensors and an adaptive statistical model. Aiming at large...

More than forty years ago in 1957, the first publication was published in The Netherlands indicating the possibility of damage due to ASR in a concrete structure. About ten years ago however the first concrete structure in the Netherlands with alkali-silica reaction (ASR) was documented. During the years before it was generally believed that...

During the construction of the Second Heinenoord Tunnel, in the Netherlands, an extensive monitoring program of research and experiments was executed. Part of this was related to the development of stresses and strains in a tunnel in soft Soil. The monitoring information with respect to the deformation, and stresses in the tunnel lining of the...

As a case study, the cost of applying cathodic protection (CP) to the columns and beams supporting two bridges was compared to the cost of replacement (due to reinforcement corrosion). All costs during the service life of the CP system were considered: initial cost, annual checks, maintenance of anode systems and specialist supervision. It was...

The present energy consumption of European Buildings is higher than necessary, given the developments in control engineering. Optimization and integration of smart control into building systems can save substantial quantities of energy on a European scale while improving the standards for indoor comfort. Many tools are available for the...

This paper describes a multi-media teaching package MULCOM, being developed within the EC DG XVII SAVE programme. The product, at present under development, is divided into two parts. The first part deals with the field study and laboratory approach to thermal comfort with further sections on visual and acoustic comfort. The second part deals...

It is well known that building installations for indoor climate control, consume a substantial part of the total energy consumption and that at present these installations use much more energy than required due to inadequate settings and poor control and management strategies. European building energy management is diffuse since design,...

A numerical analysis on the strength of placed block revetments in dikes is presented. A finite element model is developped with physical and geometrical nonlinear chararcteristics. The general behaviour of the model is described and explained extensively. A short description of parameter studies is given. The results confirm that clamping...
