The aviation sector, responsible for approximately 2% of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, is projected to grow 4-6 times by 2050, conflicting with the European Union’s Green Deal target of achieving net-zero emissions by the same year. While aircraft electrification offers a promising solution, its application is largely limited to...

In Europe, 20.7 Mt of Polystyrene (PS) was produced in the year 2021, mostly consisting of packaging, insulation, and food utensils. Like many other kinds of plastics, they take hundreds of years to naturally degrade in the environment. To prevent the buildup of plastics in our environment, recycling technology will have to be employed. Current...

Methods have been developed to predict how hydrodynamic loads acting on nearly saturated porous media are transmitted to the subsoil. In line with the effective stress principle of Terzaghi, these methods apply the boundary conditions that the effective stresses at the surface of a porous medium are zero, and that the pore water pressures...

The definition of appropriate calibration criteria for liquefaction-simulating constitutive models in sands is essential to properly simulate a liquefied state under seismic ground motions, enabling an adequate estimation of the liquefaction hazard. Therefore, a thorough quantitative characterisation of the behaviour of liquefaction is necessary...

Tailings dam failures are one of the most destructive phenomena in terms of the number of victims and the environmental impact generated. Over the years, different causes have been identified, with flow liquefaction being a prominent factor to consider when assessing the stability of tailings deposits. Due to the complex nature of these events,...

Regulations and investments in new technologies for biofuel production as an alternative to fossil fuels have boosted in the last years due to concerns about climate change and anthropogenic CO2 emissions. A valuable supply chain of biomass for biofuel production is one the most significant factors, in order to support the market’s demand. A...

Soil liquefaction is a phenomenon in which an otherwise stiff, loosely packed, cohesionless soil loses its strength and behaves behaves like a viscous liquid in response to a change in stress conditions. This study focuses on liquefaction under monotonic load (i.e. static liquefaction) and not cyclic liquefaction. While the role of state...

Natural soil deposits may possess a highly anisotropic nature. The fabric anisotropy of soils which is induced during the soil formation process can lead to severe variation in field scale responses. Although the influence of fabric on the response of sands is well known and several advanced constitutive models have been developed to account for...

Free-field site response analysis is a standard technique used to predict soil deposit dynamic response and liquefaction susceptibility. Such analyses are typically carried out by implementing periodic boundaries to guarantee the same speed of the dynamic waves travelling across them. However, when using random fields to consider the impact of...

Advanced biofuels from thermochemical liquefaction, such as pyrolysis (PY) and Hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL), of olive residues in the Andalusian region of Spain (specifically in the province of Jaen) can potentially play a crucial role in the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the maritime sector. In this study, an...

The oil palm industry has been under public scrutiny during the last decades due to environmental and social issues related to its practices. Oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) trunks (OPTs) are of special interest as they are left idle in the field after the replanting process which is performed every 25 years. This common practice results...

Seismic-induced liquefaction is one of the main hazards for pipelines buried in saturated granular materials. When soil is partially or completely fluidized, a lifeline, although installed in superficial trenches in which the coarse backfill soil usually is compacted, may experience a sudden uplift and damages. To reduce pipeline uplift and...

Soil liquefaction is investigated considering a saturated soil deposit and by implementing standard techniques of random field theory to distribute initial void ratio values and assess liquefaction risk. The soil domain is represented in a 2-dimensional (2D) random finite element model for the dynamic analysis of coupled behavior. Multiple...

1D soil column techniques are widely used to evaluate the potential of liquefaction in a system of soil layers. This approach generally leads to large inaccuracies since (1) soil layers are hardly homogeneous and perfectly horizontal and (2) horizontal effects are neglected. To demonstrate the limitation of 1D strategies and the need for 2D...

Submarine buried pipelines are often laid in trenches backfilled with loose sandy soil, which is intrinsically prone to liquefaction. When liquefaction is triggered, the soil tends to behave as a viscous fluid with vanishing shear strength and very limited ability to restrain structural displacement, for instance during the occurrence of...

The tunnels located in the shallow depths of loose saturated sand are significantly prone to liquefaction-induced uplift. Research works are, therefore, in progress to propose efficient techniques for mitigating uplift. In this study, 1 g physical modeling was used to assess the performance of helical piles for decreasing liquefaction-induced...

As the construction of sub-aerial and submarine geotechnical structures increase in amount, rate and size, so do their associated risks. Often, with use constitutive models, finite element analyses (FEAs) are performed in order to identify and mitigate these risks. NorSand, which is a consti- tutive model based on critical state soil mechanics...

Tailings are the rock flour which result from the process of mineral extraction at a mine. This waste material is stored in tailings storage facilities, also known as tailings impoundments. These impound­ments gradually grow in size during operation as more tailings are produced and stored over time. These structures are however also prone to...

Planning a monitoring campaign for a natural submarine slope prone to static liquefaction is a challenging task due to the sudden nature of flow slides. Therefore, gaining a better insight by monitoring the changes in pore pressure and acceleration of the soil mass, prior to and at the onset of static liquefaction, of submerged model slopes...

Submarine slope instabilities are considered one of the major threats for offshore buried pipelines. This paper presents a novel method to evaluate the ultimate pressure acting on a buried pipeline during the liquefaction of an inclined seabed. Small-scale model tests with pipes buried at three different embedment ratios have been conducted...
