Natural gas accounts for just under a quarter of global energy demand. The gas is mainly delivered through pipelines, but is increasingly shipped overseas by liquefying it to LNG at -162 degrees Celcius. Fluids, containing free surfaces inside ships are likely to start sloshing, as ships move on waves. These fluids induce impact loading on the...

The building and construction sector play a key role in achieving a sustainable development. In European countries, buildings are responsible for 40-45% of energy consumption, leading to significant amounts of CO2 emissions. The implementation of reusable structures lead to less waste and harmful emissions to the environment. The main purpose of...

In recent years, many countries and administrative domains exploit control over their communication infrastructures to censor online materials. The concrete reasons behind the Internet censorship remain poorly understood due to the opaque nature of the systems. Generally, Internet censorship is to disrupt the free flow of information. It involves...

Since coined in 2011, socio-hydrology studies have been dominated with mathematical models developed by mostly hydrologists, which often did not take social aspects into account so seriously. Some people argued that more attention into the social part of socio-hydrology should be given, because often the social aspects were too oversimplified....

Offshore oil and gas projects usually require the presence of more than one facilities in the same location. These facilities need to be connected with each other in order to enable the transfer of personnel among each other. As a result, bridges are implemented for such purposes with their ends being positioned at extensions of the two...
