Elerian, M.F.A.I. (author)
The depletion of terrestrial mineral deposits and the increasing demand for minerals are causing disruptions in the global supply chain. The shift towards renewable technologies requires significant quantities of metals used, for example, in the production of electric vehicles and wind turbines, putting additional strain on the supply chain. The...

The increasing size of today's ships is a major concern for navigation in confined waters. In order to ensure safe manoeuvres, port authorities prescribe, among others, a minimum under-keel clearance that must be maintained by the ships during navigation. However, the seabed of ports situated at the estuaries or along rivers is often covered by...

Due to an increased demand for transport, ships become larger, needing a larger navigable depth. For these reasons a waterway needs to be dredged and a Cutter Suction Dredger is a vessel suitable for this operation.<br/><br/>A Cutter Suction Dredger is a floating vessel which removes sand, clay or soft rock from sea or river beds. It has a...

Due to the high demand of iron ore products in the steel industry, they have the largest share in dry bulk trading per year, above coal and grains. Approximately 9000 Cape-size bulk carriers with capacities up to 400 000 tonnes (DWT) transport the annual demand of iron ore to destination ports. Grabs are employed extensively to unload iron ore...

A 3D dynamic numerical model is established for modelling the excavation process for dredging purposes. The interaction between the solid and fluid phases is realized by a specially designed DEM-FVM coupling mechanism, where the fluid-particle interaction forces, the volume fraction information and the particle information are constantly updated...

Breaching is an important production mechanism for stationary suction dredgers. It is a process occurring in submerged sandy slopes, which mostly occurs in dense sandy soils with a low permeability. The process is initiated by the formation of a slope under water, whose angle is steeper than the internal friction angle, called the breach face....

Deep sea mining is an emerging activity which attracts significant attentions from different countries governments and international huge companies around the world. Although its research and development work has been done for roughly half century time, the industrial scale deep sea mining project still has not been implemented yet because of a...

Transporting large amounts of sand is mostly done hydraulically in dredging and mining. This method of sand transport is efficient and is used in land reclamation projects or extraction of oil from tar sands. Large pieces of equipment, such as pumps and pipe line systems, dredging vessels etc., are used enabling the sand water mixtures to be...

Bisschop, F. (author)
The safety level of a dike is expressed in terms of risk. Risk is defined as the product of the probability of inundation of a polder (after failure of a dike) and the expected damage (casualties, economic damage and damage to the infrastructure) caused by inundation. The rate of inundation determines the amount of casualties and depends heavily...

As a result of the worldwide population and welfare growth, the demand for energy (oil, gas and renewable sources) and raw materials increases. In the last decades, oil and gas are produced from more and more offshore sites and deeper waters. Besides energy, the demand for diverse metals and rare earth elements increases as well. These raw...

Piston diaphragm pumps are used world-wide to transport abrasive and/or aggressive slurries against high discharge pressures in the mining, mineral processing and power industries. Limitation of excessive deformation of the diaphragm is of utmost importance for eliminating fatigue failures of the diaphragm and thereby obtaining a high...

Deep sea mining activities require excavation of material at the sea floor, transport of the material from the sea floor to the sea surface and processing of the material afterwards. One way to transport the material from the sea floor to sea surface is by means of a riser with centrifugal pump booster stations. In this research it is...

3D CFD simulations, lab experiments and field measurements are used to get more understanding of the turbulent near field overflow dredging plume mixing. The focus has been on the most often used dredging vessel: a trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD). Near field overflow dredging plume mixing is important because it determines the far field...

In dredging practice jetting is widely used for the excavation of soil. In this study the jetting process of a moving vertical jet in cohesive soil has been investigated. A number of jet tests were conducted on artificially prepared cohesive soil samples. The observed failure mechanisms are discussed. A calculation model to predict the jet...
