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...

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...

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...

Durability of concrete in engineering structures is becoming more and more of a major problem. Research into such problems is complicated and expensive, however. Developments in computer technology make it possible nowadays realistically simulating cementitious materials and studying its pore network structure. In this paper use is made of the...

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...

The Dutch coast is characterized by sandy beaches flanked by dunes. Understanding the morphology of the coast is essential for defense against flooding of the hinterland. Because most dramatic changes of the beach and the first dune row happen during storms, it is important to assess the state of the coast immediately after a storm. This is...

GIS is changing rapidly its face with the advancement of computing technologies. From merely a 2D representation of real world features, it is moving to present more and more applications in 3D formats. Today 3D GIS is an essential way of handling the spatial data in urban planning. In cities where every inch of land is measured and is consumed...

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...

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...

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...

The initial porosity of clastic sediments is poorly defined. In spite of this, it is an important parameter in many models that describe the diagenetic processes taking place during the burial of sediments and which are responsible for the transition from sand to sandstone. Diagenetic models are of importance to predict the sub-seismic...
