This paper presents a fast consolidation model suitable for long-term morphodynamic simulations. This model is applicable for muddy systems where sedimentation rates are smaller than consolidation rates, assuming quasi-equilibrium of the consolidating bed. It compares to the consolidation model developed by Sanford (2008). However, in that model...

The utilization of natural processes for engineering purposes has been widely discussed in recent years since they might enable the development of cost-effective, robust and environmentally compatible engineering technologies. Biomineralization is one of the many possible biogeochemical processes that is currently investigated in detail. We...

To ensure the quality of the Ph.D. research the Department introduced a special procedure for periodic evaluation: after a period of nine months the potential Ph.D. candidates are asked to present their research design, theoretical framework and methodological approach to the members of the Department and to an external review, drawn up by the...

The propagation of accidents among process units may cause amplification of accident magnitude, resulting in a domino effect chain. Several catastrophic accidents occurred in the process and chemical industry presented these features. Hence, research efforts have been given to the analysis of the domino effects in order to enhance prevention...

In this paper, an adaptive control scheme for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) path following under slowly time-varying wind is developed. The proposed control strategy integrates the path following law based on the vector field method with an adaptive term counteracting the effect of wind's unknown component. In particular, it is shown that...

At the science - policy interface there are several reasons to combine models with the participatory process to facilitate the complex policy making process but the communication of the two sides is often too hard to generate any meaningful results. In this paper we argue that to close the communication gap the rationale of the Meta – rule of...

In this paper, some five-point finite difference schemes for steady convection-diffusion problems are presented. To begin with, we use the finite volume method (FVM) to discretize the convection-diffusion equation. After that, we present two five-point difference schemes for the approximation of the first order derivatives on faces, one of which...

Concrete containing supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) has different durability properties from that containing pure Portland cement. The durability of concrete is always associated with the properties of microstructure, especially pore structure. Pressurization–Depressurization Cycling Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry (PDC-MIP) was...

Important engineered slopes are often heavily instrumented and their performance routinely monitored through these instruments. The evaluation of the safety of the slopes based on the monitored information is however a challenge. A systematic method is presented in this paper for evaluating the slope safety by combining multi-source monitoring...

A simple linear mixing model of heterogeneous soil-vegetation system and retrieval of component temperatures from directional remote sensing measurements by inverting this model is evaluated in this paper using observations by a thermal camera. The thermal camera was used to obtain multi-angular TIR (Thermal Infra-Red) images over vegetable and...

A self-learning adaptive flight control design for non-linear systems allows reliable and effective operation of flight vehicles in a dynamic environment. Approximate dynamic programming (ADP) provides a model-free and computationally effective process for designing adaptive linear optimal controllers. This paper presents an incremental ADP ...

We report a high-resolution numerical study of small-scale properties of two-dimensional (2D) miscible Rayleigh-Taylor (RT) incompressible turbulence with the Boussinesq approximation at small Atwood number and unit Prandtl number. Our results show that the buoyancy force balances the inertial force at all scales below the integral length scale...
