Buildings, Infrastructures and Maritime

Workshop: session, including labtour

Department: Structural Dynamics; Structural Reliability
Speakers: Floris Drijver en Sjors Braam
Studies: Inf, EE, AI

The departments Structural Reliability and Structural Dynamics work closely together, using their knowledge on constructions and materials to solve challenges in the Civil, Maritime and Offshore domain. We do this, among others, through consultancy, model development and experiments in our very own laboratory. Both departments work together closely and only slightly differ in focus: where Structural Dynamics has its main strength on the fields of vibrations and dynamics, Structural Reliability has its experts on the field of risks and reliability.

Some examples of the work we have done in the past:

  • Fatigue calculations on bridges of the Dutch Highway Network, for instance on the Van Brienenoord Bridge.
  • Forensic engineering of the cause of the collapse of the parking lot at Eindhoven Airport.
  • Developing a protocol for shake table testing for earthquake related experiments.
  • Lifetime prediction of offshore wind terminals.
  • Ship resilience to blast, (underwater) explosion, raking and collision experiments, simulations and validations.

During this workshop you'll have a 'speeddate' with a few interesting colleagues who work in the field of your interest. You can ask them anything about a certain topic, or about the work at TNO in general, but also about the possibilities for you at TNO during and after university. This is a perfect opportunity to get directly in contact with a TNO'er and ask them anything you'd always wanted to know.

Labtour

During this tour you will visit the laboratory, used by the departments Structural Dynamics and Structural Reliability. Both departments use their expert knowledge on constructions and materials to solve challenges in the Civil, Maritime and Offshore domain. We do this, among others, through consultancy, model development and experiments in our very own laboratory. Both departments work together closely and only slightly differ in focus: where Structural Dynamics has its main strength on the fields of vibrations and dynamics, Structural Reliability has its experts on the field of risks and reliability.

workshop: Labtour Building Materials

Department: Building Materials
Speaker: Andries van Wijhe
Studies: CE, ME, Ph, PT

Tour guide of the Heating, Ventilation and Air conditioning (HVAC) lab of the TNO department: building physics and systems.

Natural gas is being phased out as the main energy source for domestic heat. Heat pumps are gaining popularity as an alternative for heating systems and domestic hot water production.

The tour guide is held at the TNO MEC lab at the Bakemastraat 97K. The group will collectively walk there and back.
