The increasing size of today's ships is a major concern for navigation in confined waters. In order to ensure safe manoeuvres, port authorities prescribe, among others, a minimum under-keel clearance that must be maintained by the ships during navigation.<br/>However, the seabed of ports situated at the estuaries or along rivers is often covered...

The Port of Rotterdam experiences large amounts of siltation from the upstream rivers in its basins and canals every year. Furthermore, container vessels increase in size every decade and therefore require a larger navigational depth. These two factors cause the yearly amount of dredged material to increase. Currently, mainly trailing suction...

Tailings storage facilities (TSF) are engineered structures that retain mixed waste material (known as mine tailings material) from mining processes in liquid or slurry form. One of the issues regarding TSF management is the lack of site investigation and sample analyses, which cause the uncertainty of geotechnical properties of mine tailings...

When investigating the effect of muddy seabeds on marine vessels using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software, one challenge is to adequately describe the complex non-Newtonian fluid behaviour of mud. Although a number of rheological models have been proposed in the past, mud sediments are often simply regarded either as highly viscous...

This article presents a new turbulence closure based on the k-ω SST model for predicting turbulent flows of Herschel–Bulkley fluids, including Bingham and power-law fluids. The model has been calibrated with direct numerical simulations (DNS) data for fully-developed pipe flow of shear-thinning and viscoplastic fluids. The new model shows...

Siltation of fine (cohesive) sediment in navigation channels and harbour basins may cause serious problems for the shipping industry. Intensive maintenance dredging is required to ensure safe shipping traffic. Conventional dredging methods are highly expensive, and therefore port authorities seek for more efficient solutions to reduce costs. One...

In this study, we introduce the Delft Advanced Research Terra Simulator (DARTS), which employs the Operator-Based Linearization (OBL) approach to provide efficient and precise solutions for non-linear discretized equations, to simulate the polymer flooding process. This compositional simulation framework is feasible for describing complex...

The rheological behavior of many lubricants used in hydrodynamic bearings can reasonably be modeled using the Bingham plastic material model. This behavior is characterized by a strong discontinuity, from a pure solid state to a viscous fluid state depending on the local shear stress. In literature three methods have been presented to model a...

Experimental data showed that high-speed microsprays can effectively disrupt biofilms on their support substratum, producing a variety of dynamic reactions such as elongation, displacement, ripple formation, and fluidization. However, the mechanics underlying the impact of high-speed turbulent flows on biofilm structure is complex under such...

Transition from laminar to turbulent flow of non-Newtonian fluids is investigated using velocimetry data. These data are obtained by applying particle image velocimetry to images obtained through ultrasound imaging (echography). This yielded the observation of intermittent structures (puffs and slugs) that are formed during transition. Post...

This article concerns the turbulent flow of Herschel–Bulkley slurries through circular horizontal pipes; in particular, that of concentrated domestic slurry obtained upon separation of domestic waste water and reduction in the use of water for domestic purposes. Experiments with a rheologically equivalent clay (kaolin) slurry indicated a non...

Foam increases sweep efficiency during gas injection in enhanced oil recovery (EOR)<br/>processes by reducing gas mobility. In fact, foam is the only EOR technology that is<br/>able to fight against both gravity segregation and geological heterogeneity. Surfactant Alternating Gas, or SAG, is the preferred method to place foam into the reservoir...

Deep-sea mining is becoming more popular. The Atlantis II Deep is a deep sea mining field of metalliferous muds in the Red Sea. This field could be exploited by transporting the sediments through a pipeline laid from shore onto the sea bed to the field. From determined concentrations with their shear stress-shear rate relation, parameters for...

Foam can improve sweep efficiency in gas-injection-enhanced oil recovery. Surfactant-alternating-gas (SAG) is a favored method of foam injection. Laboratory data indicate that foam can be non-Newtonian at low water fractional flow f<sub>w</sub>, and therefore during gas injection in a SAG process. We investigate the implications of this...

This article follows from a previous study by the authors on the computational fluid dynamics-based analysis of Herschel-Bulkley fluids in a pipe-bounded turbulent flow. The study aims to propose a numerical method that could support engineering processes involving the design and implementation of a waste water transport system, for...

The concentration of domestic slurry has two advantages, it promotes resource recovery (nutrients and biomass) and saves water. But the design of a relevant sewerage requires a clear understanding of the frictional losses incurred during the transport of the slurry. This abstracts describes numerical &amp; CFD-based methods to estimate losses...

Crumb rubber-modified bitumen (CRMB) has been utilized in the asphalt paving industry for decades due to its various benefits. The complex interaction between bitumen and crumb rubber as well as the addition of warm-mix additives makes the typical laws of Newtonian fluids insufficient to describe the behaviors of highly modified bituminous...

Scope: Surfactant-alternating-gas (SAG) is the preferred method of foam injection to improve sweep efficiency in enhanced-oil-recovery (EOR). Here, for the first time, fractional-flow theory is extended to include the shock for gas injection in the high-quality regime for radial flow in a non-Newtonian SAG process for shear-thinning and shear...

The concentration (using a lesser amount of water) of domestic slurry promotes resource recovery (nutrients and biomass) while saving water. This article is aimed at developing numerical methods to support engineering processes such as the design and implementation of sewerage for concentrated domestic slurry.

This study aims to improve the predictive capabilities of flow pattern and depositional behaviour of non-Newtonian, high concentration sand and fines mixtures. The depositional behaviour influences the geometry of the deposit and the distribution of sand and fines particles, which in turn influence the strength and consolidation performance of...
