Stability of dikes is a national security issue for densely populated low-lying countries situated in delta areas, like the Netherlands. One of the dominant dike failuremechanisms in the Netherlands is piping, where high seepage flow rates transport sand particles and subsequently form a ’pipe’ under a dike structure. As such, one manner to...

This article presents a new rotor design to reduce rotor eddy current loss of a high-speed permanent magnet synchronous machine for flywheel energy storage system. Instead of using common nonmagnetic sleeves, the new rotor incorporates permeable retaining sleeves (PRSs) to fix permanent magnets on the rotor hub. The PRSs are made of permalloy...

The principal objective of this work is to understand the physicochemical behaviour of the ferrous raw material (pellet and/or sinter) bed mixed with nut coke under the blast furnace conditions. To investigate this behaviour, a specially designed blast furnace simulator called the Reduction Softening and Melting (RSM) apparatus is utilised ...

The metal magnetic memory method is a novel technique for monitoring fatigue cracks in steel structures, which can reduce operational expenses and increase safety by minimizing inspections. The crack geometry can be identified by measuring the self magnetic flux leakage, which is induced by the Earth’s magnetic field and the permanent...

Physicochemical behaviour of the pellets, sinters and its mixture (60% pellets: 40% sinter) is investigated by a series of smelting and quenching experiments. For all ferrous raw-material beds, three distinct stages of bed shrinkage occur due to indirect reduction, softening and melting. However, the characteristic nature (displacement,...

Effective gas permeability is an important parameter in the design of methane oxidation systems, governing diffusive oxygen ingress and the spatial spread of landfill gas. The influences of soil texture, compaction, soil moisture and the resulting air filled porosity on the gas permeability were researched by performing pressure loss...

Studies have shown that the incorporation of waste tire rubber aggregates reduces the strength, increases permeability and decrease thermal conductivity of concrete. However, only a few studies have investigated the effect of surface-modified rubber aggregates on the properties of concrete. This study investigates the effect of the surface...

Dual-permeability models assume that the complete porous media system can be represented by two different interacting subsystems: the matrix and the fracture pore domain. For some soils like fractured clays, the fracture domain may be empty, which makes its physical behavior differ significantly from capillary flow. Our main hypothesis is...

Fault zones are key features in crystalline geothermal reservoirs or in other subsurface environments due to the fact that they act as main fluid pathways. An adequate experimental description of the evolution of permeability of a realistic microscopic fault zone under in-situ reservoir and fracture parallel flow conditions is required. To...

Effect of nut coke addition with ferrous burden (pellet and sinter mixture) is experimentally investigated under simulated blast furnace conditions. Nut coke mixing degree was varied (0, 20 and 40 wt-%) as a replacement of the regular coke. During smelting, the ferrous bed evolves through three distinct stages of shrinkage due to indirect...

Cauchy paved the way for constructing models in concrete technology, and elsewhere. He determined the (non-flat) surface area in 3D by measuring random total projections. Analogously, he determined the length of a curved line in 2D by way of measuring the total projections. The paper will present the mathematical expressions, because in many...

Noise emissions from wind turbines are one of the main issues that the wind energy industry must deal with nowadays. Strict noise regulations often prevent wind turbines to operate at maximum power conditions, causing large losses of power production and, hence, of revenue. Several noise reduction measures have been proposed so far, but the...

Within the pavement engineering community, porous asphalt (PA) mixes are regarded as mixes capable of reducing noise and improving wet skid resistance. However, these mixes are likely to have the distress of ravelling. In order to analyse the propensity of a given PA mix for ravelling, the homogenisation technique can be considered as an...

Despite theoretical predictions that graphene should be impermeable to all gases, practical experiments on sealed graphene nanodrums show small leak rates. Thus far, the exact mechanism for this permeation has remained unclear, because different potential leakage pathways have not been studied separately. Here, we demonstrate a sealing method...

Presented is a modified test for generating crack permeability data for cementitious materials. Single-parallel cracks were generated in mortar specimens. The width of the cracks was analysed through stereomicroscope and computer tomography, and the water permeability of the cracks was determined. Reduction factors and crack flow models were...

The low membrane permeability of candidate drug molecules is a major challenge in drug development, and insufficient permeability is one reason for the failure of antibiotic treatment against bacteria. Quantifying drug transport across specific pathways in living systems is challenging because one typically lacks knowledge of the exact...

One of the primary causes that limit the blast furnace productivity is the resistance exerted to the gas flow in the cohesive zone by the ferrous burden. Use of nut coke (10–40 mm) together with ferrous burden proves beneficial for decreasing this resistance. In present study, effect of nut coke addition on the olivine fluxed iron ore pellet...

Thermoplastic polyurethane (PU) polymers with different chemical compositions were synthesized and casted to films, and their water vapor barrier properties at different range of relative humidity (RH) were characterized. The water vapor permeability (WVP) of packaging films is one of their most important properties to identify their...

Successful microbial enhanced oil recovery depends on several factors like reservoir characteristics and microbial activity. In this work, a pore network is used to study the hydrodynamic evolution over time as a result of the development of a biofilm in the pores. A new microscopic model is proposed for biofilm growth which takes into...

Using naturally occurring processes to modify the engineering properties of the subsurface has received increasing attention from industry and research communities as they aid in the development of cost-effective, robust and sustainable engineering technologies. In line with this trend, we propose to use precipitates of aluminum (Al) and organic...
