The Delft Jet-in Hot Coflow (DJHC) burner is used to investigate flameless combustion by imitating the recirculation flow characteristics appearing in a real complex furnace via a hot diluted coflow[1]. A welldefined stream of high temperature, low oxygen concentration combustion products is injected around the...

We report on a comparative study of model predictions of jet-in-hot-coflow flames. TheDelft Jet-in-Hot- Coflow (DJHC) burner was built to mimic the important characteristics of flameless combustion without the complications of a real furnace [1,2]. The DJHC burner has been used to create a turbulent diffusion...

Mild combustion in a lab-scale furnace has been experimentally and numerically studied. The furnace was operated with Dutch natural gas (DNG) at 10 kW and at an equivalence ratio of 0.8. OH∗chemiluminescence images were taken to characterize the reaction zone. The chemiluminescence intensity is relatively low compared to conventional flames...

To date, the tunneling in China is experiencing an age of fast development for decades. The potential risks behind the huge amount of construction and operation works in China was first formally realized and managed after 2002. The transition of risk assessment from a qualitative manner to a quantitative manner is on the way from the research...

The original urban planning can never meet the requirements of the rapid development and the increasing population in big cities in China. The best way to solve this problem is to develop the underground space (including tunnels). With the exhaustion and saturation of the shallow underground space, the development of urban area is more and more...

In the past few years, random field theory has been increasingly used to model the inherent soil variability. The scale of fluctuation is one of the important parameters describing a stationary random field. In this study, the factors affecting an accurate estimation of the scale of fluctuation were studied with numerical experiments to show how...

Slope instability and landslides can be catastrophic events often leading to loss of life and property. To assess the risks of slope failures, it is often desired that the dynamic process of slope failure can be simulated. This paper proposes a Granular Contact Dynamics (GCD) approach based on variational principles and implicit time integration...

Using recently obtained deterministic results as a benchmark, probabilistic slope stability analyses have been performed on an undrained slope using the random finite element method (RFEM). Non-stationary random fields have been generated with linearly increasing mean undrained strength and a constant coefficient of variation. The influence of...

Background: Aspergillus niger is widely used for enzyme production and achievement of high enzyme production depends on the comprehensive understanding of cell's metabolic regulation mechanisms. Results: In this paper, we investigate the metabolic differences and regulation mechanisms between a high glucoamylase-producing strain A. niger...

Intermittency is an ubiquitous property of fully developed turbulence, for Eulerian and Lagrangian fields, and for velocity, passive and active scalars. Intermittency corresponds to multi-scale high fluctuations, with some underlying long-range correlations. Such property is usually characterized using scaling approaches, verified using...

The interaction of different scales is among the most interesting and challenging features in turbulence research. Existing approaches used for scaling analysis such as structure-function and Fourier spectrum method have their respective limitations, for instance scale mixing, i.e. the so-called infrared and ultraviolet effects. To make...

The optimal transient growth process in a particle-laden channel flow is studied under the influence of the linear feedback control. The equilibrium Eulerian approach with the assumption that the particles are small and spherical is adopted. The effect of initial distribution of particles on the optimal transient growth of perturbations is...

Ten Dragon 3 projects deal with hydrologic and cryosphere processes, with a focus on the Himalayas and Qinghai – Tibet Plateau, but not limited to that. At the 1st Dragon 3 Progress Symposium in 2013 a significant potential for a better and deeper integration appeared very clearly and we worked out an overview of the ten projects identifying...

Concrete is a brittle composite cementitious material that easily fractures under tensile loading. Microcracks can appear throughout the concrete prior to application of any load because of temperature-induced strain and autogenous and drying shrinkage. There is no doubt that these cracks provide preferential access for aggressive agents to...

In this paper, different mechanisms of self-healing, i.e. self-healing based on adhesive agents, self-healing based on bacteria, self-healing based on autogenous self-healing were described. Their required conditions were summarized. The previous investigations showed that all mechanisms of self-healing are effective to some extend under...

In this paper, the proposed coupled transport-reaction model adapted to simulate autogenous self-healing in Portland cement paste is validated with the experimental results. The parameters are studied for modelling the dissolution of cement, the diffusion of ions between the solution in the crack and in the bulk paste and the precipitation of...

In this study, a coupled transport-reaction model was specifically developed for simulating autogenous self-healing in cementitious materials. The diffusion of ions between the solution in the crack and in the bulk paste is simulated with a transport model. The concentration of ions in the crack can be calculated. As the kinetics of chemical...

In this paper, we propose an approach to autonomously control a quadrotor micro aerial vehicle (MAV). With take-off weight of 50 g and 8-min flight endurance, the MAV platform codenamed ‘KayLion’ developed by the National University of Singapore (NUS) is able to perform autonomous flight with pre-planned path tracking. The vision-based...

ccelerated lake expansion in the 2000s has been confirmed by both dramatic lake-area increases (for 312 lakes larger than 10 km2) derived from optical images, and rapid water-level rises (for 117 lakes with water-level data) measured by satellite altimetry. However, the underlying climate causes remain unclear. This paper analyzes the...
