Softening at drinking water treatment plants is often realised by fluidised bed pellet reactors. Generally, sand is used as seeding material and pellets are produced as a by-product. To improve to sustainability, research has been carried out to replace the seeding material by re-using grained and sieved calcite pellets as seeding material. An...

Concrete structures are commonly cracked when in service. To overcome issues arising from cracking, self-healing concrete is being developed. Together with the development of the material, techniques to verify and quantify self-healing are being developed. A number of destructive techniques have been used in the past. It would be beneficial to...

In practice, drinking water technologists use simplified calculation methods for aquatic chemistry calculations. Recently, the database stimela.dat is developed especially for aquatic chemistry for drinking water treatment processes. The database is used in PHREEQC, the standard in geohydrology for calculating chemical equilibria in groundwater....

Consistent definitions of important variables in pedestrian flow dynamics are proposed. They are based on the definition of similar variables for road traffic flow from the 1960's by Edie. The definitions are extended to include multi-class flows where pedestrians move in different directions or have different characteristics. The new...

This paper presents the application of the open source non-hydrostatic wave-flow model SWASH to propagation of irregular waves in a barred surf zone, and the model results are discussed by comparing against an extensive laboratory data set. This study focus not only on wave transformation in the surf zone, but also on the numerical prediction of...

In this thesis a z?layer unstructured C-grid finite volume hydrostatic model is presented. An efficient and highly scalable implicit technique for the solution of the free surface equation is combined with an Eulerian approach for the advection of momentum. A consistent velocity reconstruc- tion procedure which not only satisfies the continuity...

How to model and simulate traffic flow including different vehicles such as cars and trucks? This dissertation answers this question by analyzing existing models and simulation methods and by developing new ones. The new model (Fastlane) describes traffic as a continuum flow while accounting for different types of vehicles. It is reformulated in...

In this study we developed algorithms for fast frequency and time domain integral equation modelling for marine controlled-source electromagnetic (CSEM) applications. Solutions of integral equations for CSEM applications in a three-layered earth with an assumed reservoirs is examined using the conjugate gradient fast Fourier transformation (CG...

Regional evacuation planning is complex and timely. These planning studies can be assisted by a transportation model. In this thesis, we investigate the requirements for such a model, and develop, implement, and test a new model, called EVAQ, which meets these requirements. Two case studies show how EVAQ can be used to assess the success and...

Since the durability depends, among other things, on the quality of the concrete and presence of cracks, it is necessary to calculate the probability of cracking in hardening concrete as reliable as possible in case of durability predictions. In this thesis, it is investigated how the accuracy of stress prediction in hardening concrete can be...

Aquatic vegetation has an important role in estuaries and rivers by acting as bed stabilizer, filter, food source and nursing area. However, macrophyte populations worldwide are under high anthropogenic pressure. Protection and restoration efforts will benefit from more insight into the interaction between vegetation, currents, waves and...

This book presents the investigation of different architectures of integrating hydrological knowledge and models with data-driven models for the purpose of hydrological flow forecasting. The models resulting from such integration are referred to as hybrid models. The book addresses the following topics: A classification of different hybrid...

Worldwide, aquatic vegetation is important for the physical and ecological condition of coastal areas. Unfortunately, this vegetation (e.g. seagrasses) is also under pressure due to human activities. Protection and restoration are cumbersome, particularly because the complex relations between vegetation and its environment are not yet well...

This thesis examines the morphological changes of non-tidal meandering rivers at the spatial scale of several meanders. With this purpose, a physics-based mathematical model, MIANDRAS, has been developed for the simulation of the medium-term to long-term evolution of meandering rivers. Application to several real rivers shows that MIANDRAS can...

Drinking water treatment plants automation becomes more sophisticated, more on-line monitoring systems become available and integration of modeling environments with control systems becomes easier. This gives possibilities for model-based optimization. In operation of drinking water treatment plants, the processes are usually optimized...

In this paper a numerical model is presented with which it is possible to predict the non-thermal hydration-induced volume changes that develop during hardening of a cement-based material. The model equilibrates the relative humidity in the pore system with the free surface energy in hardening cement past. From a certain state of equilibrium,...

Grade and recovery of eddy current separation can be estimated on the basis of trajectory simulations for particles of simple shapes. In order to do so, the feed is characterized in terms of a small set of test-particles, each test-particle representing a fraction of the feed of a given size, shape and material. In this paper, the grade and...
