De aarde als batterij - Hadi Hajibeygi

Waar sla je overtollige windenergie op als het lekker waait en windmolens overuren draaien? In de ondergrond, zegt ingenieur Hadi Hajibeygi van de TU Delft.

Grimburgwal provides lessons for quay wall renovations Amsterdam

Grimburgwal provides lessons for quay wall renovations Amsterdam

On September 1, 2020, part of the quay of the Grimburgwal in Amsterdam collapsed. The primary causes appear to be the different construction of the narrow quay, the locally deeper canal bed, and the weakening of masonry due to collisions. This is the result of the research conducted by a research team composed of experts from TU Delft, Deltares, AMS Institute, and SkyGEO, led by Mandy Korff (TU Delft/Deltares), on behalf of the City of Amsterdam. The full report with conclusions and recommendations for other quay walls in the city was published by the City of Amsterdam on April 8, 2021.
