Details of a complete methodology for porosimetry of virtual concrete have been described in a series of publications. This paper shortly sketches the main characteristics, whereupon it is indicated how a pore network model is designed based on data extracted from the virtual cement paste. This involves smoothing the main trunks as the main pore...

Loose random and dense random mono-size pacl<ing states were investigated by the discrete element modelling (DEM) for eight types of polyhedral grains, for ellipses with different aspect ratio, for cubes and for spheres. Focus was on density, sphericity of the grains and average value and frequency distribution of coordination number. The 3D...

Image alignment is without doubt the most crucial step in SAR Interferometry. Interferogram formation requires images to be coregistered with an accuracy of better than 1/8 pixel to avoid significant loss of phase coherence. Conventional interferometric precise coregistration methods for full-resolution SAR data (Single-Look Complex imagery, or...

Digital elevation models (DEM) are widely used in various distributed hydrological models. The stream network can be extracted from it so that runoff routing can be calculated. With the advent of remote sensing and computing technologies, the computation based on DEM with high resolution becomes possible. However, there still exist regions with...

Since the early 20th century, the necessity of modeling and monitoring fresh concrete behavior has been recognized by the industry with the objective to ensure adequate mechanical properties and a proper durability of concrete structures. Due to the rapid development of computer technology, the applications of computational simulation tools in...

Porosimetry of matured cementitious materials is of hiigh interest, because durability is governed by the capillary pore network structure. Experimental approaches are time-consuming, laborious and thus expensive. Fast developments in computer technology make it nowadays possible quite realistically producing cementitious materials in virtual...

Low Temperature Asphalt (LTA) technologies are utilized in asphalt pavement industry to lower energy demands and greenhouse gas emission during mixing and construction processes. Although these technologies are currently available and hope to demonstrate similar performance with Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) mixes, LTA shows more sensitive than HMA to...

The Dutch coast is characterized by sandy beaches flanked by dunes. Its morphology is essential for the defense against flooding of the hinterland. Therefore it is monitored on a yearly basis by Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS). However, it is recognized that most erosion of the beach and first dune row takes place during storms. To assess the...

Permeability of virtual cement seems to exceed experimental data by several orders of magnitude. The differences may actually not be that dramatic, since experimental samples are in practice not always fully saturated as generally assumed. This paper demonstrates that this has enormous effects on permeability. A numerical study is conducted on...

Realistic simulation of particulate materials like concrete on meso- as well as micro-level is nowadays possible by fast developments in computer technology. This would be a more economic way than by physical experiinents, which are more time-consuming, laborious and thus expensive. This concern the production of the aggregate structure or of...

The paper introduces a novel approach to porosimetry in virtual concrete, denoted as random node structuring (RNS). The fresh state of this particulate material is produced by the DEM system HADES. Hydration simulation is a hybrid approach making use of wellknown discretization and vector methods. Particle interferences (overlap) in the dynamic...

Using bionic surface on the material equipment interface of bulk handling equipment is a promising solution for wear reduction. A bionic surface is a flat surface outfitted with a pattern of convexes that disrupt the natural sliding flow of bulk material. Previous numerical work has shown a significant reduction of wear of bionic surfaces...

The breakage behaviour of biomass pellets with a diameter of 6 mm under uniaxial compression test was studied experimentally and numerically using the discrete element method (DEM). Two types of the available bonding contact models in EDEM software were used to compare the macroscopic properties including the maximum stress at failure, strain at...

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...

Physical particle packing is becoming a hot topic in concrete technology as more and more types of granular materials are used in concrete either for ecological or for engineering purposes. Although various analytical methods have been developed for optimum mixture design, comprehensive information on particle packing properties is still missing...
