Sediment transport dynamics in dam-break modelling
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2016-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The prediction of breach characteristics during earth embankment dam-break modelling due to overtopping is dependent on the accurate modelling of the intrinsic breaching processes such as flow hydraulics, ...
Numerical modelling of alkali silica reaction in concrete dams
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2018-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Dams are important infrastructure components and an asset for any country. Past earthquakes have highlighted their vulnerability to damage and even failure which can have major socio-economic consequences, ...
Investigation into flow-induced vibrations of piano key weirs
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2019-04)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis considers the transient behaviour of piano key weirs (PKW) from a hydrodynamic and structural perspective. Their geometry makes them very rigid structures, however, there are thinner components ...
