We present well-resolved large-eddy simulations of turbulent flow through a straight, high aspect ratio cooling duct operated with water at a bulk Reynolds number of Re<sub>b</sub> = 110 × 10<sup>3</sup> and an average Nusselt number of Nuxz = 371. The geometry and boundary conditions follow an experimental reference case and good agreement...

This article follows from a previous study by the authors on the computational fluid dynamics-based analysis of Herschel-Bulkley fluids in a pipe-bounded turbulent flow. The study aims to propose a numerical method that could support engineering processes involving the design and implementation of a waste water transport system, for...

The aim of this paper is to investigate the mechanical properties of cement paste specimens by both experimental and numerical methods. Firstly, the specimens subjected to uniaxial tensile loading were studied experimentally. Afterwards, numerical investigation was carried out based on the experimental observations. Two types of specimens...

Chemical degradation of cementitious materials is a serious threat to the durability and performance of concrete structures. External sulfate attack is one of the situations that may cause gradual but severe damage. Sulfate ions present in seawater, rivers, groundwater and industrial effluent can penetrate into the hardened concrete, and react...

This thesis deals with the structural damage and its corresponding effect on the residual ultimate strength of seamless metallic pipes. The structural damage is here characterized as the type of damage produced by external mechanical interference, considerably undermining the strength and/or stability of the pipes. Not only the aesthetic...

The concentration (using a lesser amount of water) of domestic slurry promotes resource recovery (nutrients and biomass) while saving water. This article is aimed at developing numerical methods to support engineering processes such as the design and implementation of sewerage for concentrated domestic slurry. The current industrial standard...

A dent is one of the main structural damages that may affect ultimate strength. In this paper, the residual ultimate strength of dented metallic pipes subjected to a bending moment is quantitatively investigated. The numerical model is developed accounting for the variation of the dent length (l<sub>d</sub>), dent depth (d<sub>d</sub>), dent...

Numerical investigation is conducted in this paper on both intact and dented seamless metallic pipelines (diameter-to-thickness ratio D/t around 21), deploying nonlinear finite element method (FEM). A full numerical model is developed, capable of predicting the residual ultimate strength of pipes in terms of bending capacity (M<sub>cr</sub>)...

Rotating wickless and stationary capillary cylindrical heat pipes are widely used heat transfer devices. Transient behavior of such heat pipes has been investigated numerically with computational fluid dynamics and lumped parameter models. In this paper, the advantages of both methods are combined into a novel engineering model that is low in...

The earliest relation describing the risk of backward erosion piping, from Bligh in 1915, calculates an overall gradient over the dike. This gradient should be lower than a certain value depending on the material of the dike foundation for the dike to be safe. Later developments rationalize this number, showing the influence of grain size,...

The prediction of backward erosion piping is important for safety assessment of dikes in the Netherlands, where subsurface conditions are prone to this erosion mechanism. In the current assessment methodology, the adapted Sellmeijer rule is in use. In combination with the national safety philosophy and uncertainty in input parameters, this model...

Backward erosion piping is an important failure mechanism for water-retaining structures, a phenomenon that results in the formation of shallow pipes at the interface of a sandy or silty foundation and a cohesive cover layer. Although the pipe depth reveals a lot of information on the backward erosion process, it has never been measured...

The reliability of river embankments is essential for flood risk management. The Po River, which flows through the North of Italy, is safeguarded over half of its length by major river embankments. Performance assessment of such water-retaining structures has become a major concern following some significant flood events in the past. Among the...

A novel laboratory device is presented, in which the process of backward erosion piping is observed in cylindrical sand samples oriented horizontally. The cylindrical shape of the testing device constrained the location of the erosion path to the top of the sample, thereby allowing pore pressure measurements to be made in both the eroded pipe...
