For the first time since the 1970s, concrete plans are in motion to bring humans back to the Moon through the Artemis programme. The dawning era of space exploration aims to set the groundwork for long-term off-Earth settlement, with sights on bringing the first humans to Mars. In order to provide a safe means of inhabiting extraterrestrial (ET)...

Grabs are essential in the process of unloading a bulk carrier by grabbing bulk material such as iron ore from the cargo hold. Due to varying operational conditions, the consistency and the amount of payload can vary significantly. One of the largest varying operational conditions is the occurrence of irregular bulk surfaces. Therefore, it is...

Due to the constant growth of global maritime shipping, the optimization of grabs used for unloading bulk carriers is more and more relevant. Especially for a coarse material like limestone, the average payload can be improved, by altering the grab design. It is suggested that the penetration and cutting depth of a grab can be improved, which...

Lubrication forces play a major role in the behaviour of fluid–solid systems, where they affect the collisions between particles. Current implementations of lubrication forces in unresolved simulations often suffer from shortcomings, such as neglecting parts of the physics or relying on arbitrarily defined parameters. In this short...

Microbially induced carbonate precipitation (MICP) involves bacteria to drive calcite precipitation and naturally cement soils, thereby improving soils performance. Experimental studies have shown that bio-cemented specimen can suffer from severe spatial inhomogeneity of the calcite content, leading to large uncertainty in treatment...

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...

Powder bed fusion additive manufacturing has been applied to the fabrication of functionally graded materials. A new design that allows the material composition to change along the direction perpendicular to the powder spreading has been reported in the literature. Based on this design, this work examines the quality of the graded spread...

The Discrete Element Method (DEM) in combination with an One Factor At a Time (OFAT) experimental simulation plan were employed to investigate the effect of a selection of factors on the mixing performance of a double shaft, batch-type paddle mixer. Most influential factors on the mixing performance of the paddle mixer are desired for...

The ramifications of plastic pollution on the environment are becoming increasingly serious in various forms throughout the world. In this context, rivers are the most important suppliers of plastics entering the marine environment. However, rivers that contain high loads of plastic waste also directly harm the livelihoods of people living near...

Over 5000 offshore wind turbine generators have been installed in the past decades. 80% of these wind turbines have a monopile foundation. Monopiles are hollow steel tubular piles with a diameter of up to 10m. The first phase of the monopile installation consists of the self-weight penetration into the seabed due to the mass of the monopile....

Second-order Gaussian kernels have been utilized to develop three algorithms that could automatically extract ridge lines for hydrodynamic modelling. Isotropic second-order Gaussian kernels produce inaccurate lines at crossings and junctions. To avoid the malfunctioning of Second-order Gaussian kernels, one default and two alternative algorithms...

Asphalt mixture is a skeleton filling system consisting of aggregate, asphalt, and mineral powder. High performance asphalt mixture design is directly affected by internal stress transmission of skeleton filling system. In this paper, the discrete element method based on digital image was employed to study the stress transmission. By...

Turnout is the key component of the railway tracks for trains to change direction, which is vital to operational safety and passenger comfort. Therefore, it is of great importance to perform a scientific and reasonable tamping operation for turnout areas. In this paper, based on the commercial software EDEM and RECURDYN, a coupled simulation...

Fast observations of rapid surface large-changes are demanded in disaster evaluations and scientific studies. Digital elevation model (DEM) differencing before and after the events is an effective way to retrieve the changes. Owing to a short repeat cycle, geosynchronous synthetic aperture radar (GEO SAR) systems can quickly obtain repeat...

Recent research suggested that the digital elevation models can be considered, as an alternative to the altimetry data. However, the water prohibits the ability of monitoring the construction the waterbed, due to the loss of the returning signal. The elevation models have therefore a flat surface, which prohibits the extraction of the water...

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...

The paper aims to simulate the micromechanical behavior of asphalt mixtures during the compaction process using the Discrete Element Method (DEM). The interactions between the components of a Porous Asphalt (PA) mixture were represented using an Elastic Viscoelastic Contact Model (EVCM), which is a user-defined model implemented in EDEM...

Digital Elevation Model (DEM)-based mountain vertex extraction is one of the most useful DEM applications, providing important information to properly characterize topographic features. Current vertex-extraction techniques have considerable limitations, such as yielding low-accuracy results and generating false mountain vertices. To overcome...
