Heterogeneous materials are vital for both the modern engineer and inquisitive scientist alike. They make up a vital material class that can either form inevitably as a result of material processing (such as crystallization in metals) or can be intentionally designed for to gain desirable properties (such as anisotropy in composites). As such,...

Vegetation in front of levees, dikes and seawalls can decrease wave energy and therefore contribute to the safety against flooding. However, wave damping predictions by vegetation are still inaccurate due to measurement and modelling uncertainties. Many studies focused on finding reliable predictive tools using scaled flume tests with...

Over the past centuries, the Dutch rivers have been extensively engineered with the construction of hydraulic training works. A changing climate and increasing demands of river functionalities require innovations to the system to ensure its resilience. Exploring potential applications of Xstream elements might contribute to the development of...

This work develops a stand-alone Finite Element-based Unit Cell for the modelling of Fibre Reinforced Composites, capable of capturing 3D stress states and geometrical imperfections at the micro-scale. The project considers different beam and 3D elements for this purpose and draws comparisons between them based on computational efficiency,...

Salt water intrusion through the New Sea Lock of IJmuiden, Netherlands requires mitigation to ensure availability of enough fresh water further inland. For this purpose, a salt screen has been proposed for selective withdrawal of salt water from the Noordzeekanaal in the vicinity of the lock complex. Formulas to assess the withdrawal rate of...

Data-driven parameterizations offer considerable potential for improving the fidelity of General Circulation Models. However, ensuring that these remain consistent with the governing equations while still producing stable simulations remains a challenge. In this paper, we propose a combined Variational-Multiscale (VMS) Artificial Neural...

Growing interest in unconventional aircraft designs coupled with miniaturization of electronics and advancements in manufacturing techniques have revived the interest in the use of Sub-scale Flight Testing (SFT) to study the flight behaviour of full-scale aircraft in the early stages of design process by means of free-flying sub-scale models....

This article introduces adaptivity in Clustering-based Reduced Order Models (ACROMs). The strategy is demonstrated for a particular CROM called Self-Consistent Clustering Analysis (SCA), extending it into the Adaptive Self-Consistent Clustering Analysis (ASCA) method. This is shown to improve predictions of Representative Volume Elements ...

Concrete dams are subjected to soft water penetration of a high water head during their long service lives. Degradation due to calcium leaching will decrease the durability of the concrete and affect dam safety. The long-term performance of concrete dams due to calcium leaching should be evaluated and predicted accurately to complete the...

ASR (alkali-silica reaction) is one of the toughest durability problems in engineering. However, the damage induced by ASR is still fairly unpredictable due to the lack of microstructural information of cement-based materials affected by ASR, while the microstructure determines the global performance. In order to fill this gap, a multiscale...

Multi-scale structures, as found in nature (e.g., bone and bamboo), hold the promise of achieving superior performance while being intrinsically lightweight, robust, and multi-functional. Recent years have seen a rapid development in topology optimization approaches for designing multi-scale structures, but the field actually dates back to...

Standards for environmental impact, safety and operational performance of ships are becoming increasingly strict. In order to meet these standards, the performance of new ship designs must be predicted with an increasing level of detail and confidence. As present prediction methods lack realistic, dynamic behaviour of the ship's propulsion plant...

A coupled regional and local model is required when groundwater flow and solute transport are to be simulated in local areas of interest with a finer grid while regional aquifer boundary and major stresses should be retained with a coarser grid. The coupled model should also maintain interactions between the regional and local flow systems. In...

Recent insights suggest that the osteochondral interface plays a central role in maintaining healthy articulating joints. Uncovering the underlying transport mechanisms is key to the understanding of the cross-talk between articular cartilage and subchondral bone. Here, we describe the mechanisms that facilitate transport at the osteochondral...

Unconventional aircraft designs have the potential to lower the impact of aviation on emissions and climate as compared to conventional aircraft designs. However, the flight dynamics behaviour of such unconventional configurations must be carefully evaluated by studying Stability and Control (S&C) characteristics to design safe aircraft and...

Exposure to excessive community noise has become a large environmental health concern. Noise pollution continues to increase while it is accompanied by direct, as well as cumulative adverse health effects. In addition, prolonged exposure to excessive noise levels also has a negative economic impact. The incorporation of numerical tools in the...

In current study, several fundamental and inherent problems in original Deardorff subgrid model are identified under stably stratified condition. It is found that the mixing length parameterization in this subgrid model is at the root of a long trouble problem of grid size sensitivity in large-eddy simulation (LES). A new formulation of mixing...

This paper presents a validation process of the developed multi-scale modelling scheme on mortar composites. Special attention was paid to make the material structure of real and virtual mortar specimens comparable at the meso-scale. The input mechanical parameters of cement paste (both bulk cement paste and interfacial transition zone) at the...

We have identified certain fundamental limitations of a mixing-length parametrization used in a popular turbulent kinetic energy-based subgrid-scale model. Replacing this parametrization with a more physically realistic one significantly improves the overall quality of the large-eddy simulation (LES) of stable boundary layers. For the range...
