De Houtribdijk verbindt Lelystad met Enkhuizen en vormt aldus de noordoostelijke begrenzing van de toekomstige Markerwaard. Bij de aanleg van de dijk (1963 - 1975) werd ervan uitgegaan, dat de oeververdediging aan de Markermeerzijde spoedig overbodig zou zijn door de aanleg van de Markerwaard. De "binnenbekleding" werd dan ook relatief licht...

In Ukraine a project is initiated to increase their energy independence, which is realized with diversifying the natural gas supply. By expanding the port of Yuzhny with an import LNG regasification terminal, it is possible to import LNG from various production plants. The scope separates the value of the terminal in short term and long term...

This study investigates the possibilities of the development of a dedicated cacaoterminal in the port of Abidjan, Ivory Coast.The port of Abidjan is the most important port in West Africa. The port handles about 15 million tons of cargo a year. One of the main export products is cacao. The developments in the cacao industry are mainly dictated...

Doel van deze studie is de tijdsafhankelijke compressibele scheidingsvlak tussen gebieden problemen te kunnen simuleren. Voor dit soort problemen zijn visceuze effecten van zowel water en lucht fysische en numerieke modellering van stromingen met een vrij bewegend van water en lucht, ten einde impact verwaarloosbaar. De aanwezigheid van lucht,...

This report presents the analyses and conclusions of a study on the planform evolution of the Geul river in the last 80 years. The results are compared with those of studies carried out by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VUA). The Geul river is to tributary of the Meuse River (The Netherlands). It has been straightened and protected against...

In Vlissingen , vlak naast het monument van de Ruyter op het Keizershoofd ligt een tweetal kleine havenbekkens . Gelegen in een architec tonische fraaie en vooral oude omgeving, maken de Vissershaven en Koopmanshaven deel uit van het stadsgezicht . De Koopmanshaven had vroeger een veel gro ter oppervlak , maar naarmate de stad Vlissingen groeide...

The Port of Leixões is located in the north of Portugal. The operational conditions at berth “A” are affected by several factors resulting in a down-time of the berth of about 20%. In order to describe the behaviour of the moored vessel physical model tests were performed at the Faculty of Engineering University of Porto within the research and...

Tokyo Bay is an area exposed to storm surges generated by typhoons. Consequently lowlands along its coastline are subject to flood risk. Dike walls, levees and barriers have been developed by the Japanese to protect these coastal areas. In the coming decades it is expected that a rise in sea level will occur. Also, climate change is expected to...

The pipavav port in western Gujarat, India, will be developed in two phases, one projected for 1997 and the second for 2010. In the first phase four terminals are projected on the northern side of the bay. (See appendix II for a map of the project site.) One of these terminals will be a multi-purpose terminal for the handling of bagged rice and...

The objective of this study is to determine large scale of fine sediment transport near coral reefs islands in the Singapore Strait. Coral reefs in the Singapore Strait face great pressure due to high sedimentation and turbidity, which cause decreasing of light penetration and of environment quality for the coral growth. Sedimentation and high...

Stability of rock on horizontal bottoms and steep slopes subjected to wave attack has been a subject of investigation in the past. But the stability of rock on gentle slopes has not been investigated systematically. The objective of this research is to investigate the relations between the different variables involved. A possible application is...

All harbours require frequent dredging to cope with sedimentation. In certain cases the deposited sediment/silt forms a weak soil layer referred to as fluid mud. The top layer is often used as nautical bottom, while its presence is not necessarily harmful to the vessel. This could lead to the conclusion that the safety margin underneath a vessel...

Introduction The popularity of monitoring dikes with sensor techniques is rising. It is claimed that sensor techniques lead to significant cost savings and can predict an upcoming dike collapse. But a technical foundation to use the sensor monitoring information in flood safety assessment is lacking. This research investigates the contribution...

The world population is growing. Together with the population, the need for resources is growing, as is the need for the transportation of these resources. A significant part is carried out through marine transport, directly relating to the increasing need for port development. All over the world, a shift increasingly occurs towards applying...

Compare the 1D spectrum computed in SWAN (Svasek, 2007) with it measured by buoy OS4 in the Oosterschelde Estuary, serious underestimation of wave energy can be found on low-frequency band. Investigation has been performed to find the possible reasons for the missing energy on low frequency part. In this study, diffraction is hypothesized as the...

This paper presents the study on the self-weight consolidation, which is referred to the consolidation problem of cohesive deposits in reservoirs and based on Gibson's theory of non-linear finite-strain consolidation. The analytical solution of the linearized equation is carried out. The solution shows that the consolidation is dominated by the...

Submerged breakwaters (SBWs) are becoming increasingly popular as alternative coastal defence system due to the lack of impact on beach amenity and aesthetics compared to common emerged beach protection measures. However, the recent significant amount of failing SBWs resulting in additional shoreline erosion reported in [Ranasinghe and Turner...

The objective of this study is to determine whether a floating terminal could be a suitable and feasible solution for the realisation of a new berthing location for the cruise ships of the future. This feasibility study is based on the amount of downtime of a terminal due to excessive motions because of wave loading. Therefore, this study...
