The applicability of the Sellmeijer design rule to Limburg dike sections near Well, Hout-Blerick, Buggenum, and Thorn was investigated in this thesis. This was accomplished by building a finite element numerical model, in COMSOL Multiphysics, to assess the piping in the hydrogeological systems of the research locations. The proposed model is...

Despite the technological improvements in the dredging industry in the last decades, there are components that have not been investigated accordingly. One of them is the bow coupling bend pipe which can be found on trailing suction hopper dredgers. In contrast to most pipelines, the specific bend pipe is not only a means of transport for the...

This article explores the potential of vibro-acoustics to detect physical ageing of plastic pipes. For this purpose, two different topics are combined: the ability of vibro-acoustics to estimate the storage modulus of a plastic pipe, and the sensitivity of the estimated storage modulus to changes due to ageing. Concerning the first topic, a...

Structural reliability analysis often considers failure mechanisms as correlated but non-interacting processes. Interacting failure mechanisms affect each others performance, and thereby the system reliability. We describe such interactions in the context of flood defenses, and analyze under which conditions such interactions have a large impact...

Structural flood protection systems such as levees are an important component in flood risk reduction strategies. Levees can fail through various failure mechanisms; this thesis focuses on the mechanism Backward Erosion Piping (BEP) which occurs when a sandy levee foundation is eroded by groundwater flow. To assess whether a levee's reliability...

The soil-grout interface friction was measured to be in between 0.0 [kPa] and 14 [kPa]. To measure this friction, a special research method was invented that enabled a tunnel to be recreated. With this setup, any formation could be used. The formation could be created with a hole in the middle which simulated a borehole. Next, by filling and...

This article presents a new turbulence closure based on the k-ω SST model for predicting turbulent flows of Herschel–Bulkley fluids, including Bingham and power-law fluids. The model has been calibrated with direct numerical simulations (DNS) data for fully-developed pipe flow of shear-thinning and viscoplastic fluids. The new model shows...

Supercritical flow through a horizontal pipe leads to a non-uniform peripheral wall temperature distribution even when the wall heat flux is kept constant and uniform. This is attributed to lower heat transfer coefficient at the top section where the denser fluid tends to sink. Hence, to obtain a uniform wall temperature, a designed wall...

Composite structures, such as the fiberglass reinforced structure studied in this paper, have been normally treated in previous research as homogeneous anisotropic laminated plates regarding the investigation of their mechanical properties. Throughout this paper, this specific structure is considered in a different way in which the fiberglass...

Pipe jacking has been the dominant trenchless technology for constructing small (\2 m) to medium-diameter (\4 m) tunnels. Uncertainties and construction difficulties increase significantly when the diameter of the tunnel exceeds 4 m. This paper presents a case study of the largest concrete pipe-jacking tunnel project in the world, the...

This paper presents the numerical interpretation of a recent experiment on a real-scale levee physical model, in order to investigate the process of Backward Erosion Piping (BEP) and validate a recently proposed finite element formulation able to model both the simultaneous processes observed in backward erosion piping, i.e. the propagation of...

Despite recent advances in robotic technology, sewer pipe inspection is still limited to conventional approaches that use cable-tethered robots. Such commercially available tethered robots lack autonomy, and their operation must be manually controlled via their tethered cables. Consequently, they can only travel to a certain distance in pipe,...

Backward erosion piping (BEP) is a form of internal erosion which can lead to failure of levees and dams. Most research focused on the critical head difference at which piping failure occurs. Two aspects have received less attention, namely (1) the temporal evolution of piping and (2) the local hydraulic conditions in the pipe and at the pipe...

In this thesis, a ground structure based thermofluid topology optimization (TO) method is presented which is applicable to problems with creeping flow. Fluid channels with creeping flow are found in a variety of engineering applications, primarily in the field of microfluidics. Current fluid channel TO is typically done with density-based TO and...

The human body is the subject of several interesting phenomena and blood flow comes under that category. The main motivator for this thesis is the flow of blood in aneurysms. An aneurysm is a sudden expansion of an artery, with large expansion angles causing an adverse pressure gradient and leading to flow separation. Several studies have shown...

Drinking water temperature is an essential parameter for water quality related to the physical, chemical and biological processes in water. However, in many countries, the drinking water temperature has not been taken seriously and was excluded from water quality standards. For example, in the Netherlands, the temperature of drinking water...

In the volatile and demanding current market and in view of frequent implementation of new emission regulations, ship renovations entail more and more radical conversions of higher complexity. Application of optimization methods in the ship maintenance, repair, and conversion industry have been so far frequently overlooked, due to the former...

A Fall-Pipe system deposits rock on the seabed for the protection of submerged objects. Due to the irregular motion of a vessel on the waves the accuracy and efficiency of the rock dumping process is limited. This thesis develops a motion compensation system for a modular Fall-Pipe system developed by Vuyk Engneering. From literature it appears...

The Netherlands is a country prone to flooding. Recent assessments led to the insight that protection levels of many flood defences should be increased. Integrating reinforcement measures is a difficult task as many dikes are situated in densely populated areas. Conventional reinforcement measures include berm construction or the implementation...

A flexible riser is a multi-layered pipe device which enables deep-water production by connecting seabed facilities to floating vessels. To withstand huge hydro-static pressure, it is required to have strong collapse capacities. At present, the collapse capacity of a flexible riser is designed based on a "wet collapse'' concept, in which the...
