Underwater noise resulting from the monopile driving process can cause severe damage to marine wildlife, such as hearing injury, behavioral disturbance, or even death. Although current noise-attenuation techniques used in this process have shown a significant noise reduction at high frequency ranges, mitigating low-frequency noise is still...

A convex pattern surface is proposed and optimized to mitigate the sliding wear of bulk handling equipment caused by interaction with bulk solids. This work investigates the effectiveness of the convex pattern surface on wear reduction during interactions with non-spherical particles. Multiple representative particles, obtained through a...

Bed permeability is a crucial factor in blast furnace performance which depends on the material distribution achieved through charging. Since a homogeneous bed of pellet and sinter is recommended, it is crucial to understand whether segregation of the pellet-sinter mixture occurs during charging. The Discrete Element Method is useful in this...

To improve the understanding of the mixing performance of double shaft, batch-type paddle mixers, the discrete element method (DEM) in combination with a Plackett–Burman design of experiments simulation plan is used to identify factor significance on the system’s mixing performance. Effects of several factors, including three material properties...

Bed permeability is a crucial factor in blast furnace efficiency and stability. The Discrete Element Method (DEM) has been used extensively to model material flow in different parts of the furnace and holds great potential for optimizing the permeability. The inherent computational load is the main bottleneck in using this method to provide...

In design optimization of bulk handling equipment (BHE) we generally focus on the mean performance of the equipment. However, granular materials behave stochastic due to irregularities in particle shape and size which leads to stochastic performance of the equipment. To include the stochastic performance we propose robust metamodel-based...

A convex pattern surface has been proposed and optimized to reduce sliding wear of bulk handling equipment by adjusting the flow behaviour of bulk material. This study aims at modelling the surface deformation of the convex pattern sample to investigate how effectively the sample reduces sliding wear. Archard wear model and a deformable...

Soft grippers show adaptability and flexibility in grasping irregularly shaped and fragile objects. However, the soft grippers' low loading capacity and limited shaped fitting ability are the main limitations for developing large-scale applications, especially for heavy objects and objects with sharp edges. The particle jamming effect has...

Segregation or de-mixing is the phenomenon occurring in moving granular materials in which particles with similar properties, e.g., size, density and shape, accumulate. This de-mixing reduces the homogeneity of the mixture which is generally considered undesirable and should be minimised. Despite many experimental and numerical attempts to...

Solid hydrogen carriers, such as sodium borohydride or potassium borohydride, are considered promising options to enable the use of hydrogen as a fuel for marine vessels, because of their favourable gravimetric and volumetric energy density compared to compressed or liquefied hydrogen. When using solid hydrogen carriers, in the form of granules...

Elastic metamaterials have been mostly designed to control structural vibration for a specific frequency range. However, the stresses developed due to the wave propagation are not commonly consider in their design phase. This work proposes a multi-objective design optimization of a metamaterial-based interface to tune its dynamic characteristics...

The performance improvement of renewable energy sources has become nowadays a crucial topic to boost the energy transition. With respect to offshore wind farms, larger wind turbines are currently being designed to increase their power capacity. To support such turbines into the seabed, monopile foundations are mainly used, due to their low-cost...

Segregation control is a challenging yet crucial aspect of bulk material handling processes. The discrete element method (DEM) can offer useful insights into segregation phenomena, provided that reliable models are developed. The main challenge in this regard is finding a good balance between including particle-level details and managing the...

The pin-on-disc test is a standard sliding wear test used to analyse sliding properties, including wear contour and wear volume. In this study, long-term laboratory test performance is compared with a short-term numerical model. A discrete element method (DEM) approach combined with an Archard wear model and a deformable geometry technique is...

Sliding wear of bulk handling equipment (e.g., shovel bucket, mill and transfer chute) can be dramatically reduced by using a convex pattern surface compared to a flat surface, by adjusting the flow behavior of particles moving along the convex pattern surface. To study the effect of particle size relative to the dimensions of the convex pattern...

The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) calls for the maritime industry to restrict its CO2 emissions by −40% (IMO2030) and −70% (IMO2050). This paper answered the following research question: “Which technical, economic and emissions-related conditions predominantly determine the feasibility of a conceptual supply chain of liquid CO2 that...

In calibration of model parameters for discrete element method (DEM) based models the focus lies on matching the mean key performance indicator (KPI) values from laboratory experiments to those from simulation results. However, due to the stochastic nature of granular processes experimental results can show large variances. To include...
