The surge in demand for inland vessel goods transportation has necessitated the operation of larger vessels with increased drafts. These larger vessels generate significant induced loads from their more powerful bow thrusters during berthing and mooring. These loads can lead to scour, which ultimately results in instability of the quay wall. To...

Progress in Laser powder bed fusion manufacturing has led to greater use of Additive Manufacturing in combustion chambers/nozzles. This allows for the creation of more intricate and efficient solutions, but generates the need for a better understanding of how surface roughness in micro-channels used for engine cooling relates to build angle and...

Channel adjustment in engineered rivers is often associated with channel bed incision (e.g., Chowdhury et al., 2023, Czapiga et al., 2022a, 2022b, Ylla Arbós et al., 2021). Channel bed incision reduces the stability of in-river structures, exposes river-crossing cables and pipelines, and the spatial variability of channel bed incision due to...

A new X-ray computed tomography technique for the purpose of imaging fluidized beds is presented. It consists of an experimental set-up with three stationary X-ray source and flat panel detector pairs, a geometric calibration and data processing workflow, and an image reconstruction algorithm. The technique enables sparse-angular tomographic...

Multiphasic reaction of bicarbonate hydrogenation to form formate using homogeneous Ru PNP pincer catalyst in a continuous flow tubular reactor is reported. The reaction system consists of three phases. Catalyst is dissolved in toluene while potassium bicarbonate is dissolved in water. The significance of efficient mixing among the organic...

The agglomeration of cohesive particles can deteriorate fluidization quality and cause the defluidization of a bed, which is a common issue found in the applications of fluidized beds. This study aims to gain a better understanding of particle cohesion on agglomeration/fluidization behaviors and the effective methods for achieving a better...

Vibro-assisted fluidization of cohesive micro-silica has been studied by means of X-ray imaging, pressure drop measurements, and off-line determination of the agglomerate size. Pressure drop and bed height development could be explained by observable phenomena taking place in the bed; slugging, channeling, fluidization or densification. It...

Horizontal stirred bed reactors are widely used in the commercial manufacturing of polypropylene. However, a comprehensive understanding of the particle dynamics in horizontal stirred bed reactors remains elusive, primarily due to the lack of detailed experimental data. In this work, we studied the influence of operating parameters on the...

Immersed tunnels are positive buoyant structures during installation and negative buoyant after installation. A tunnel is composed of sequential immersed elements that are coupled to each other in joints. Tunnel elements consist of segments which are compressed to each other by longitudinal post-tensioning. After immersion the tunnel is...

In this study, the impact of different vibrational modes on the fluidization characteristics of cohesive micro- and nano-silica powder was examined. Fractional pressure drop, bed expansion measurements, and X-ray imaging were utilized to characterize the fluidization quality. The densities of the emulsion phase at the top and bottom of the...

Erosion-control measures in rivers aim to provide sufficient navigation width, reduce local erosion, or to protect neighboring communities from flooding. These measures are typically devised to solve a local problem. However, local channel modifications trigger a large-scale channel response in the form of migrating bed level and sediment...

Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs) are a class of metallic multi-functional materials which possess sensing and actuation capabilities, thanks to their unique ability to couple thermal and mechanical fields. NiTi-based Shape Memory Alloys exhibit properties which guarantee their high performance in adverse environments and, with the added benefit of two...

Shape memory alloys (SMAs), such as nickel-titanium (NiTi) alloys or Nitinol, possess remarkable properties, including superelasticity and shape memory effects, which are attributed to the reversible martensitic transformation. However, traditional manufacturing of NiTi SMAs is challenging due to its high ductility and reactivity, which limits...

Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) is a metal additive manufacturing process in which a three-dimensional object is obtained by selectively melting and fusing a metallic powder with a heat source, such as a laser beam, in successive thin layers. This process allows to create lightweight parts with complex geometry. However, parts created by LPBF...

In the Netherlands, the coastlands act as the principal protection against the sea. Without human interventions, the Dutch coast would be eroding due to an imbalance in the sediment budget of the coastal zone. The preferred coastal management strategy is sand nourishment, which have become larger in scale and more complex over the last 70 years....

Hydrogen has emerged as a promising candidate for energy storage, offering an alternative to fossil fuels as a primary fuel source. It can be safely stored in a liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) and recovered upon demand through the reversible hydrogenation/dehydrogenation of the LOHC. Voyex, a technology-driven startup, is developing a...

To understand the functioning of a river system it is crucial to have information on the sediment transport. Estimates of long-term sediment fluxes in the Rhine at the German-Dutch border are required to understand the morphological evolution of the Dutch Rhine Delta. Especially information about the long-term flux of bed material load is of...

Intertidal flats are of great socio-economic and ecological importance in defending the coastal cities from flooding, providing resources for land reclamations and habits for wildlife. On the intertidal flats, milder profiles are usually featured with finer sediment. However, we find the opposite relationship between the alongshore variation in...

A bifurcation in an engineered river system (i.e., fixed planform and width) has fewer degrees of freedom in its response to interventions and natural changes than a natural bifurcation system. Our objective is to provide insight into how a bifurcation in an engineered river responds to peak flows and human interventions. To this end, we analyze...
