Numerical modelling of wave interaction with rock-armoured rubble mound breakwaters has been performed to study wave overtopping. The influences of the slope angle, a berm in the seaward slope, a protruding crest wall, a recurved parapet, and the wave steepness have been studied using a validated CFD model (OpenFOAM). The numerical modelling...

The need to curb CO2 emissions has led to an increase in the utilization of CCS systems. These systems use pipelines for the transport of CO2. It is preferred that CO2 be transported in it’s dense form. But, this is not always the case as the phase in which CO2 exists is based on the operating conditions. In some cases, multiphase CO2 is...

Floating offshore wind turbines (FOWTs) have the potential to harness wind resources in deepwater, which is so far prohibitive for conventional approaches. This, however, comes at a cost: the platform’s extra degrees of freedom (DoFs) introduce complex aerodynamic and hydrodynamic behaviours. Therefore, FOWTs must be accurately modeled to reduce...

Due to an increased demand for transport, ships become larger, needing a larger navigable depth. For these reasons a waterway needs to be dredged and a Cutter Suction Dredger is a vessel suitable for this operation.<br/><br/>A Cutter Suction Dredger is a floating vessel which removes sand, clay or soft rock from sea or river beds. It has a...

With an ever increasing demand for sustainable energy, limitations of current sustainable technologies are studied widely. In wind farms, the so-called wake effect provides the biggest limitation on wind farm total power output. Using wind from the unaffected boundary layer to re-energize the wind flow in the wake provides a method of limiting...

Planting trees is widely considered an effective way to create a good urban wind environment, improve air quality, mitigate heat island effects, improve pedestrian wind comfort and reduce building energy consumption. To assess tree effects and find suitable tree setups in urban areas, Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulations can be used.<br...

Weirs are constructed inside rivers to manage the water level. On the one hand they need to be designed sufficiently strong to prevent failure or destruction, while on the other hand they need to be economically feasible. If a structure is designed too strong, unnecessary costs are made and the structure becomes too expensive.<br/><br/>One of...

The flamelet generated manifold (FGM) model is suitable for moderate or intense low oxygen dilution (MILD) combustion provided the flamelets underlying the manifold include the effects of strong dilution by products of the fuel/oxidizer mixture. Here we propose such an extended model based on the use of non-premixed flamelets diluted at the...

The mean overtopping discharge and the overtopping flow parameters related to individual overtopping events are often used to characterize the wave overtopping processes at dikes. Roughness, berms and oblique waves have significant effects on the wave overtopping processes at dikes while these effects are still not fully understood. A 2DV...

The reduction of emissions from large industrial furnaces critically relies on insights gained from numerical models of turbulent non-premixed combustion. In the article Mitigating Thermal NOx by Changing the Secondary Air Injection Channel: A Case Study in the Cement Industry, the authors present the use of the open-source OpenFoam software...

Natural gas compartment accommodated in utility tunnels is beneficial in meeting the pressing demand of energy supply and sustainable urban environment. However, the leaking gas characterized by flammable and explosive can pose a huge threat to the safe operation of the utility tunnel. When an unexpected gas leakage accident happens in the...

No alternatives are currently available to operate industrial furnaces, except for hydrocarbon fuels. Plant managers, therefore, face at least two challenges. First, environmental legislation demands emission reduction. Second, changes in the origin of the fuel might cause unforeseen changes in the heat release. This paper develops the...

In the present study, we have performed a series of numerical simulations of the turbulent liquid metal flow in a laboratory-scale setup of the continuous casting. The liquid metal flow was subjected to an external non-uniform magnetic field reproducing a realistic electromagnetic brake (EMBr) effect. The focus of this research was on the...

As the need for abundant and reliable renewable energy increases, there is a growing interest in floating wind turbines, which would allow to harness the wind resource in areas where bottom-founded wind turbines cannot be used. However, the movements of the platform are expected to cause unsteady aerodynamics effects, including different wake...

Rubble mound structures are often constructed to prevent severe wave damage to ships. By constructing the crest at a certain level, the waves are reduced such that safety is ensured. However, a large increase in sea level rise is expected in the next century due to climate change. Because of this, multiple adaptations might be necessary to meet...

One of the preferred features of plastic is its high durability. This merit is its main disadvantage in the natural environment. When poorly disposed of, plastic waste can enter rivers from surface waters and subsequently end up in the ocean. Here, plastic spreads out over the entire ocean and ultimately ends in ocean gyres....

To meet energy demand towards a low-carbon future, the global market demand is growing for metals such as cobalt and nickel which are major elements in batteries. Polymetallic nodules, which are formed on abyssal plains at depths ranging from 4 to 6 kilometres and are distributed in high abundance on the top of the seabed, contains several times...

The design of hydraulic structures like breakwaters and crest walls is often based on empirical formulations, physical models test, numerical models and a fair amount of expert judgement. Each technique has its own pros and cons. The main limitation of the empirical formulas is that often they have to be applied outside their range of validity....

During a severe accident in a water­-cooled nuclear power plant, large quantities of hydrogen can be generated in the reactor core. The hydrogen mixed with air presents a potential risk of combustion when the hydrogen concentration reaches flammability limits. If combustion occurs, pressure loads can damage safety systems and even compromise the...

Lighthouses have guided seafarers for centuries and still play an essential role in navigating marine vessels and bringing them to safe harbours. With climate change, the already harsh ocean environment may become more severe. It is expected that future wave conditions can compromise the structural integrity of the lighthouses with their violent...
