Underwater noise resulting from the monopile driving process can cause severe damage to marine wildlife, such as hearing injury, behavioral disturbance, or even death. Although current noise-attenuation techniques used in this process have shown a significant noise reduction at high frequency ranges, mitigating low-frequency noise is still...

Analyzing the impact of aircraft noise on urban areas requires specific consideration of sound propagation over long distances, which is not typically covered by tools designed for indoor acoustics. Although it is unclear to what extent existing parametric tools that combine 3D modeling and acoustic simulation can accurately replicate these...

The aim of the present work is to design active acoustic metamaterial consisting of an array of Helmholtz resonators and fabricating them using an additive manufacturing technique in order to assist in a reduction in noise levels in aerospace applications. To this aim, initially, a passive metamaterial consisting of an array of 64 Helmholtz...

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...

With today’s aging population and the prevalence of chronic illnesses, healthcare systems worldwide are struggling to accommodate the increasing number of patients. This projected growth and rising demand underscore the importance of advancing wearable devices. In the realm of diagnostic healthcare, the pursuit of non-invasive and safe...

Flying has become increasingly accessible in the last few decades, leading to enormous growth in aircraft traffic worldwide. Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport is the fourth-busiest airport in Europe based on passenger traffic, and noise pollution from the airport affects over 63,000 individuals daily. This study aims to determine if the presence of...

Coral reefs are considered to be a crucial ecosystem and form of natural coastal protection. They owe their effectiveness to their high structural complexity. This complexity, which positively influences aspects like species richness, coral recovery, live coral cover, and coastal protection, is often quantified using parameters such as porosity...

Inherent limitations of linear control, including PID, are Bode's phase-gain relationship and the waterbed-effect. Literature showed that reset control can overcome these limitations. The 'Constant in Gain, Lead in Phase' (CgLp) reset element was developed, which can be used in combination with a conventional PID approach. The benefit is that...

The coastline of Demak, Indonesia, has been eroding during the<br/>last 15 years. Coastal retreat in Demak is caused by a combination<br/>of mangrove deforestation and local subsidence due to groundwater<br/>extraction in the nearby city of Semarang. To restore the lost mangrove<br/>forest, permeable dams, consisting of bamboo poles with a<br/...

Ultrasonic flowmeters that use transit-time ultrasonic transducers face measurement errors due to 'crosstalk,' whereby the working signal travels through the pipe wall and couplings, interfering with the signal from the fluid. Although various procedures have been proposed to solve the issue of crosstalk, they're limited to low-frequency...

Mangroves can function as a ‘bio-shield’ to protect coastal communities from harsh environments because of their strong ability to attenuate wave energy. However, as mangroves are usually oversimplified as rigid cylinders in antecedent studies, the effects of complex mangrove morphology on wave attenuation have not been well researched....

Salt marshes fronting coastal structures, such as seawalls and dikes, may offer important ecosystem-based coastal defence by reducing the wave loading and run-up levels during storms. We question (i) how the long-term salt marsh development in the Dutch Wadden Sea relates to the tidal-flat foreshore bathymetry and (ii) how the wave run-up...

With the capacity to reduce wave energy and trap sediment, Scirpus mariqueter has become an important native species of annual grass for ecology restoration at the Yangtze Estuary in eastern China. Due to seasonal variances of biophysical characteristics, S. mariqueter usually bends and breaks in winter, resulting in flattened stems that may...

In July of 2021, large areas in the catchment of the Meuse River in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany were affected by extreme rainfall and floods. This paper presents the hydraulic and morphological data that were collected during and after the flood. The data were analysed to understand the hydraulic and morphological functioning of the...

Wave surfing is a water sport in which a surfer uses a board to ride a wave towards the shore. It is done in the coastal areas around the globe. Each surf spot has its own wave quality depending on the wave climate and the type of coast. Some spots have year-round perfect waves and other surf spots only work ’when the stars are aligned.’ The...

Ships can avoid to be detected by magnetic mines by reducing their magnetic signature with degaussing coils. Degaussing currents are provided by switched mode power supplies which impose a current ripple on top of the degaussing current. The ripple might be visible in the magnetic signature which would increase the detectability of the ship. A...

Floating breakwaters are moored structures that attenuate wave energy through a combination of reflection and dissipation. Studies into floating breakwaters have been generally restricted to optimising the attenuation performance. This study presents a novel floating breakwater type that was developed to have good attenuation performance while...

The hydraulic transport of sediments in sediment–water multiphase mixtures is an important process in nature and many industrial applications. The flows are characterized by complex transient phenomena, in which the overall system scale and the particle scale are equally important. Experimental research into dense mixture flows is focused on...

An aquifer storage transfer and recovery (ASTR) system was studied in which tile drainage water (TDW) was injected with relatively high NO<sub>3</sub> (about 14 mg/L) concentrations originating from fertilizers. Here we present the evolution of denitrification kinetics at 6 different depths in the aquifer before, and during ASTR operation....
