Discarded tires have been an environmental concern in different parts of the world. One mass application to avoid such environmental concern is to use them as embankment fill material in civil engineering projects. In such applications, discarded tires are usually used in a shred form referred as...
Landslides include various forms of geological mass movements such as falls, slides and flows under the force of gravity. Predictions of landslide kinematics and dynamics require knowledge of flow behaviour and mathematical modeling. Research into the flow behaviour of granular materials has...
Sinkholes are frequently reported around the world, and soil erosion around defective sewer pipe is found to be one of the possible cause of sinkholes. As water infiltrates through the defect in a pipe, soil can be washed into the pipe leading to a cavity or even sinkhole formation. Besides,...
This research focuses on the study of mechanisms of proppant transport in reservoirs during frac-packing operation. As an attempt to improve current numerical modeling of proppant transport, a multi-module, numerical proppant, reservoir and Geomechanics simulator was developed, linked and...
The Discrete Element Method (DEM) has been developed and used in modelling dry granular materials with or without cohesive bonding between particles. The incorporation of fluid flow in the DEM analysis is difficult since the DEM is a discrete approach to mechanistic analysis while fluid is a...
