E-mail address: steven.lind@manchester.ac.uk (S The incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics (ISPH) method with projectionbased pressure correction has been shown to be highly accurate and stable for internal flows and,(More)
The large lateral hole of the Sprotte needle is claimed to aid cerebrospinal fluid efflux during the performance of spinal anaesthesia. Using theoretical calculations and practical measurement we have shown that reducing the area of the lateral hole to that of the cross sectional area of the needle does not affect the flow rate. We suggest this modified(More)
Coastal areas in England and Wales are at greater risk of flooding and erosion than their landward equivalents. To address these hazards, over the last 20 years, a process to develop long-term Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs) has been developed (Leafe et al., 1998; Cooper et al., 2002; DEFRA, 2006). The spatial boundary of SMPs is defined by coastal cell(More)
Flows in estuarial and coastal regions may be described by the shallow-water equations. The processes of pollution transport, sediment transport and plume dispersion are driven by the underlying hydrodynamics. Accurate resolution of these processes requires a three-dimensional formulation with turbulence modelling, which is very demanding computationally. A(More)
Tsunamis caused by landslides may result in significant destruction of the surroundings with both societal and industrial impact. The 1958 Lituya Bay landslide and tsunami is a recent and well-documented terrestrial landslide generating a tsunami with a run-up of 524 m. Although recent computational techniques have shown good performance in the estimation(More)
