Nowadays the most important sectors in the strategy for the future of the port of Rotterdam are container handling, chemicals and distribution. To offer these sectors the opportunity to grow and renew, space is needed. By means of the construction of Maasvlakte II this space can be given. This land reclamation is planned to be located in the...

Bij de beoordeling van de veiligheid van de Nederlandse duinenkust wordt gebruik gemaakt van een rekenmodel dat, voor vastgestelde ontwerpomstandigheden, de mate van duinafslag bepaalt. De kern van dit rekenmodel wordt gevormd door het zogenaamde DUROS-rekenmodel (TAW, 1984). Op basis van beschikbare informatie en het verwachte bereik van de...

Shallow flows are three-dimensional flows with two dimensions being signifcantly larger than the third dimension. Coherent structures, also called eddies, are areas in the flow, where velocity fluctuations are correlated, with a certain rotation. Although, generally, coherent structures of the order of the waterdepth contain most of the...

Offshore structures are designed to resist the impact of the extreme wave. Shell EP Projects desires a computer model that is able to simulate the impact of the design wave on gravity based offshore platforms, such as the Sakhalin PA-B platform. Comflow is a numerical model that simulates fluid flow, by solving the Navier-Stokes equations using...

This new land will be exposed to a North Sea wave climate and tidal currents. Severe erosion of the dunes and a large draw back of the coastline has to be avoided. One of the possibilities to influence the wave climate and thus the sediment transport nearshore is by using a perched beach with a submerged breakwater (see Figures A2 and A3). The...

Designing breakwaters on steep foreshores faces some problems. At present, it is not known what the influence of the steepness of the bottom slope is. Design formulae for armour layers don't take the bottom steepness into account in a direct manner. In theory, in irregular waves, wave average heights in shallow water become higher as the bottom...

The Durban Harbour, run by the National Ports Authority of South Africa (NPA), is the largest harbour in South Africa. To stay competing in the 21st century the harbour entrance must be widened and deepened for the entry of Post Panamax ships. An important part of the Durban Harbour entrance Widening and Deepening project is the demolition of...

The discovery of great oil reserves located under the northern part of the Caspian Sea has lead to an increased interest in the wave climate in this area. Statistical analysis of wave measurements is insufficient to determine reliable design wave conditions on the northern part of the Caspian Sea, because the amount of available wave...

This document focuses on the weather downtime in the offloading cycle of a generic LNG Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU). Results from these weather downtime assessments are essential for site concept selection and design of FSRU's, and are also used as input for logistics simulating the total gas supply chain. The FSRU is an...
