Sand wave is one of the large-scale seabed morphological features with a typical wave height of metres and a wavelength of hundreds of metres. Its mobile nature causes a nuisance to offshore infrastructure and marine transport. Pre-sweeping is a construction procedure commonly involved in submarine utilities installation to dredge existing sand...

Variable density groundwater models are essential for managing coastal groundwater resources. However, their practical applicability can be questioned due to limited validation opportunities on long timescales associated with the development of fresh-saline distributions. This study addresses this challenge by applying upscaled metamodeling...

In response to socio-ecological challenges, cities around the world are implementing greenification and urban forestry. While these strategies contribute to reducing the ecological footprint, they often overlook various social implications. This explains the increasing global attention to Biophilia, which emphasizes human–nature interaction to...

To move towards a condition-based maintenance practice for aircraft structures, design of reliable health management methodologies is required. Development of diagnostic methodologies is commonly realised on simplified sample structures with assumptions that methodologies can be adapted for application to realistic aircraft structures under...

Marine reef ecosystems have degraded massively worldwide, and restoration efforts have as yet not managed to realize the scale required to reverse continued degradation. To achieve effective scales, scientific insights in restoration methods should be paired with industry-based approaches used for infrastructural development. We illustrate by...

The United Nations’ Paris Agreement forces nations and industries to transition from conventional hydrocarbon-based energy sources to more sustainable and less-emitting alternatives such as geothermal energy. Geothermal doublets are used to provide a source of green heat to greenhouses and residential buildings. In industry, reservoir simulators...

Limiting maximum crack widths is a serviceability limit state, which ensures the durability of reinforced structures. In current practice, maximum crack widths are limited by using additional reinforcement, on top of the amount of reinforcement required for the designed ultimate bearing capacity. Reducing the amount of reinforcing steel used,...

Mangrove is a coastal vegetation type primarily located in the tropical regions between 5 North and 5 South. This coastal vegetation is capable of reducing the force of incoming waves. This is a result of the obstruction created by the roots, stems and canopies against waves to propagate through. Because of this capability, mangrove vegetation...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a promising renewable energy technology that is the most economical at large scale. But contemporary literature does not address how OTEC could reach such scale with current technology, and what the techno-economic impact of location-dependent factors and technological learning are. This paper tackles...

This work investigates numerical method and equivalent continuum approach (ECA) of fluid flow in fractured porous media. The commonly used discrete fracture model (DFM) without upscaling needs full discretization of all fractures. It enjoys the merit of capturing each fracture accurately but will get in trouble with mesh partition and low...

Digital Rock Physics has reached a level of maturity on the characterisation of primary properties that depend on the microstructure - such as porosity, permeability or elastic moduli - by numerically solving field equations on μCT scan images of rock. After small deformations or at depth though, most rocks eventually reach their limit of...

Flow simulations on porous media, reconstructed from Micro-Computerised Tomography (μCT) scans, is becoming a common tool to compute the permeability of rocks. Still, some conditions need to be met to obtain accurate results. Only if the sample size is equal or larger than the Representative Elementary Volume will the computed effective...

Modelling anisotropic flow in rocks requires their full permeability tensor. While theories derived from the upscaling of Stokes flow to Darcy's law may justify the tensor symmetry, homogenisations from micro-scale rock samples often return a non-zero level of asymmetry. Since most studies dismiss these controversial observations as numerical...

This dissertation presents a study of fine sediment transport and morphodynamics in estuarine settings using data from the Lower Passaic River (LPR), located in New Jersey, USA. Originally a relatively shallow system, it has been dredged and deepened for navigation purposes from the late-1800s onwards, along with other modifications such as...

Perovskite Solar Cells are an increasing attraction in research with great strides in performance efficiencies. But their commercialization is far from fruition, due to persistent issues. Stability under prolonged exposure to external stresses is a major concern. Furthermore, the adaption of upscaling technologies in research is presently slow....

The development of a wind farm is a highly sophisticated task, whereby many stakeholders are involved and several unique disciplines come together to form a whole. Commonly, the unique disciplines are optimized individually which leads to sub-optimal windfarm designs. Therefore, it is of great importance that an interdisciplinary approach is...

We present a multi-level discrete fracture model (MLDFM) to guarantee a robust and efficient solution for naturally fractured reservoir simulation. In MLDFM, we apply a triple continuum model using structured grid for forward simulation where large-scale fractures are represented with numerical embedded discrete fracture model (EDFM) and the...

Nature-based solutions (NBS) for hydro-meteorological risks (HMRs) reduction and management are becoming increasingly popular, but challenges such as the lack of well-recognised standard methodologies to evaluate their performance and upscale their implementation remain. We systematically evaluate the current state-of-the art on the models...

After more than ten years since the introduction of Near Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEBs), the transition towards a zero-energy new built environment can still be considered slow despite European Member States’ various efforts to facilitate, promote and accelerate their implementation and uptake. The barriers to sustainability measures in general...

During the past decade, the offshore wind energy industry evolved to bigger turbines, going into deeper waters and farther offshore. As bottom-fixed wind turbines are limited to shallow water depths, floating wind structures are the next frontier to unlock the vast potential of wind energy. Despite many techno-economic challenges, several full...
