There is very little from the space shuttle that probably was used on the Delta IV. The Delta IV is the latest of a long line of Delta boosters that have one of the longest histories with a 95% success. In the first decade of the century there were two partial failures of Delta rockets where the satellite was not put in the correct orbit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Thor_and_Delta_launches_(2000%E2%80%932009)[^]), one the first launch of the Delta IV Heavy.

It is well known that the tile system was not a good design (http://www.keithcompany.com/Article%201-23.aspx[^]). There has been some work on other options (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmospheric_entry[^]), but I guess without a future space plane in the works, probably not a lot of work has been done on the concept. I would guess that a lot of the reason for the shuttle's economic failure comes from the tiles (it was suppose to make space flight cheap).
