Technical visits


Deltares is an independent institute for applied research in the field of water and subsurface. Throughout the world, we work on smart solutions, innovations and applications for people, environment and society. During the technical tour, a visit will be made to the hydro-research facilities of Deltares. This will include a visit to the large multidirectional wave basin, in which currently an innovative floating island concept is being tested. Also a visit to our unique test facility the Delta Flume will be part of the tour. In this facility, which can generate the largest artificial waves in the world, it is possible to test at full scale the effect of extreme waves on dikes, dunes, breakwaters and offshore structures.

Please note that the tour will be partly outdoors, so dress appropriately.

Delft Aerospace Structures and Materials Laboratory

The Faculty of Aerospace Engineering has a highly advanced laboratory at its disposal: the Delft Aerospace Structures & Materials Laboratory (DASML). Part of DASML houses various fatigue, tensile and compression testing systems, in which materials can be tested under various conditions to its limits. The chemical and physical laboratories provide support in the development of ceramics, polymers, self-healing materials and coatings. The composite laboratory and production allows for the testing of new production methods. There also is a dedicated laser facility, as well as a composite welding lab and an NDT lab. DASML also houses the CyberZoo, a dedicated space available for researchers and students to perform test flights of new designs and MAV control systems.
