Erosion and sedimentation are natural processes that occur in natural flows.
If the erosion is a threat for a structure, a bed protection is necessary to stop this process. A bed protection usually consists of relatively large stones.
For calculating the required dimeter of the stones several formulae are available, of which the formula...

Wave or vehicular action on an ice sheet as well as structural vibrations and thermally induced loading cause cyclic loading on an ice sheet. To better understand the effects of cyclic loading on the strength of sea ice, cyclic loading tests have been conducted at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS). In addition, the corresponding ice...

Many regions in the world depend heavily on expensive desalinated water for fresh water consumption, in particular tropical areas. Current mainstream desalination technologies (Reverse Osmosis and Multi-Stage Flash Evaporation) are quite energy intensive and thus costly. Today’s challenge is to design a desalination system that could run with...
