Oil exploitation of tight reservoirs has gained significant importance lately. Some researchers have defined tight reservoirs as those characterized with permeability lower than 0.1 mD. However, permeability is an absolute value, and tight reservoirs have complex pore systems that require a detailed geological and petrophysical rock...

Cyclic wetting and drying impact the integrity of cohesive clay materials in geotechnical engineering applications. Boom Clay, frequently used in erosion protective layers, presents a critical case study due to its widespread application and the environmental conditions it endures. This research delves into the effects of repeated wetting and...

Climate change directly impacts the source, mode and volume of sediment generation which can be observed in the rock record. To accurately model source to sink systems, in addition to hinterland geology, tectonics and transport distance, a thorough comprehension of the climate is essential. In this study we evaluate the role of climate on...

In dredging and land reclamation, there are growing economic and environmental pressures to make beneficial use of fine-grained/cohesive soils. Due to these pressures, there is renewed interest in researching ways to optimise the beneficial use of fine-grained soils in dredging and reclamation.<br/>Stiff cohesive clayey soils soil break up into...

This thesis examines the load distribution on 60 m long piles under gradual static loading, considering the POST Rotterdam high-rise building as the study project. The research employs fibre optic (FO) instrumentation on site to monitor strain changes in the piles over time and assess load transfer mechanisms. This data is integrated into a...

The economic and environmental advantages of extrusion-based 3D concrete printing have made it a frontrunner in large-scale buildings. Nonetheless, this approach suffers from a contradictory rheological requirement and a high percentage of Portland cement (PC) in its mixture, which challenges its sustainability. It is claimed that the addition...

Presented here is a numerical study on the preloading of four-legged jack-ups, such as those commonly employed in the construction of offshore wind farms. The need for reducing jack-up installation time is particularly felt within the offshore industry, especially when multiple preloading cycles are necessary in clayey soils to fulfil given...

The microscopic structure of low-permeability tight reservoirs is complicated due to diagenetic processes that impact the pore-fluid distribution and hydraulic properties of tight rocks. As part of an ongoing study of carbon dioxide-enhanced oil and gas recovery (CO2-EOR/EGR) and CO2 sequestration, this research article adopts an integrated...

The importance of physico-chemical processes at the particle scale for the engineering scale behaviour of fine-grained geomaterials is undisputed. Yet, despite great advances in the discipline, experimental evidence that fully resolves the clay micromechanics i.e. linking the evolving microstructure and interparticle actions under loading, is...

This study aimed to assess the suitability of lime treatment for use in dikes in the Netherlands. The effect of this technique on the behavior of a Dutch clay was addressed by comparing the detailed response of lime-treated and natural samples at different lime contents (1.25% and 2.25%) and curing periods. A series of laboratory tests...

The implementation of extrusion-based 3D concrete printing (3DCP) in large-scale constructions is currently limited by concerns regarding rheology control and the sustainability of this process. To address these issues, this study presents an approach to develop limestone-calcined clay-based cementitious (LC3) materials accelerated by Ca(NO...

In 3D concrete printing, fast structuration is a prerequisite for ideal buildability. This paper aims to study the impact of inorganic additives, i.e., CaCl<sub>2</sub> and gypsum, on structural build-up and very early-age hydration of limestone-calcined clay-cement (LC3) pastes within the first 70–80 min. Results show that, increasing the...

Clay rocks are multiphase porous media having a complex structure and behaviour characterised by heterogeneity, damage and viscosity, existing on a wide range of scales. The mesoscopic scale of mineral inclusions embedded in a clay matrix has an important role in the mechanisms of deformation under mechanical loading by cracking and creeping....

In the present study, we aim to parameterize a flocculation model, based on a logistic growth equation, by conducting laboratory experiments. The flocculation experiments are performed using two types of natural sediments and different flocculating agents: salt (monovalent and divalent), extracellular polymeric substances, and living and dead...

This study presents a hybrid framework to predict stability solutions of buried structures under active trapdoor conditions in natural clays with anisotropy and heterogeneity by combining physics-based and data-driven modeling. Finite-element limit analysis (FELA) with a newly developed anisotropic undrained shear (AUS) failure criterion is...

Geological Disposal Facilities (GDF) for radioactive waste will generally rely on clay-rich materials as a host geological formation and/or engineered barrier. Gas will be produced within the GDF, which can build up significant gas pressure and will activate the migration of gas through the clay materials via different transport mechanisms....

Autogenous shrinkage may be a critical issue concerning the use of limestone-calcined clay-cement (LC3) in high-performance concrete and 3D printable cementitious materials, which have relatively low water to binder (W/B) ratio. Adding an internal curing agent, i.e., superabsorbent polymer (SAP), could be a viable solution in this context....

Limestone-calcined clay-cement (LC3), as one of the most promising sustainable cements, has been under development over the past decade. However, many uncertainties remain regarding its rheological behaviors, such as the metakaolin content of calcined clay. This study aims to investigate the effect of increasing the content of fine-grained...

Formulation of quaternary blended system containing ordinary Portland cement or clinker, slag, limestone and calcined clay (LC2) appeared to be a viable approach to developing low-clinker cements without severely sacrificing mechanical performance at later ages. This paper investigates the effect of two material parameters, i.e., LC2-to-slag...
