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...

Marine renewable energy as a infinite source of energy can be a reliable alternative for fossil fuels particularly in the UK with high potential wave energy in the Britain marine environment. Wide variety of wave energy converters has been developed in last decades and presenting more economical and reliable technologies is also under process....

Typical Dutch historical city centres are characterised by the presence of canals. Due to increasing demands on public space, these canals make promising locations for the construction of large underground spaces, such as parking garages. There are no significant buildings overhead and they are often situated close to their target users. My...

The goal of this master thesis is to describe the spatial distribution of the wave overtopping discharge over and behind the crest of a coastal defence structure. The influence of the most relevant parameters on this process is explored. This research has been performed by means of a physical model. The following relevant parameters were varied...

In general, an inland navigation lock has a structural lifespan of about 100 years, while in most cases this lock is not big enough anymore after 25 - 50 years. This is caused by the growing ship dimensions and/or intensities. A functional flexible lock is the solution for extending the functional lifespan. This type of lock is, with or without...

In the Netherlands 6,8% of the total electricity production came from renewable energy sources. Electricity was 17 % of the total energy consumption in that year. In total 1,2% of the energy consumption was therefore renewable. The objective of the cabinet to get 20% of the energy from renewable energy sources will therefore be a major challenge...

The elastocoast system can be used as an armour layer on revetments. The bonding system exists of a mix of crushed stones and 2-component polyurethane. This bonding system creates bonding forces between the stones and an open (porous) structure can be obtained. Elastocoast is developed by Elastogran GmbH, a BASF subsidiary. The response of an...

Coastal zones are highly vulnerable to climate change and its variability. Future projections of global climate change suggest that relative sea-level rise and increased storm frequencies could lead to significant increases in coastal flooding and shoreline erosion. Associated with this, it is likely that coastal hazards can have the potential...

After New Orleans was struck by hurricane Katrina on the 29th of August a consortium including Iv-Infra was in a tender, which involved the design of a storm surge barrier at the east side of the city of New Orleans. This consortium designed a piled-supported structure including a concrete superstructure. The superstructure consists of a...

Op moment van schrijven is de aanleg van Maasvlakte 2 in volle gang. Het masterplan is echter nog in ontwikkeling, maar steeds meer keuzes worden vastgelegd. Daarom moet onderzocht worden of er op Maasvlakte 2 een ruimteclaim voor een Binnenvaart Service Centrum (BSC) moet blijven staan. Een BSC is een neutrale binnenvaartterminal waar een deel...

Coral reefs are highly diverse ecosystems that provide food, income, and coastal protection for hundreds of millions of coastal dwellers. They are found in tropical and semi tropical areas spread throughout South-east Asia, the Caribbean, the Indonesian archipelago, on Australian coasts and in the Pacific islands. Coral reefs are subject to both...

Een onderzoek naar de morfologische veranderingen in het Friesche Zeegat. Na de afsluiting van de Lauwerszee is het bekken continu in verandering. Dit heeft gevolgen voor de bevaarbaarheid van de vaarroute naar Schiermonnikoog. In dit onderzoek wordt een voorspelling gedaan naar de ontwikkelingen voor het komend decennium en de gevolgen van deze...

Thesis deals with finite element (FE) simulation of borehole jack (BHJ) tests in ice. The purpose of the thesis was to simulate elastic-plastic range shown in BHJ tests, compare measured ice stiffnesses with obtained from simulations, fit plastic range, investigate plastic properties and stress descending in surrounding ice. Eight BHJ tests...

Extracellular Polymeric Substance is found to be responsible for the stabilizing behaviour of biofilms on sediment, but studies disagree on how this stabilizing effect is achieved and what processes are involved in making an EPS biofilm shear off. This study answers the question how the biofilms achieve the stabilizing effect and what processes...

Bed degradation in a number of Dutch river branches, like the Bovenrijn, can cause various problems in the near future. At low waters the navigation depth at the non-erodible layer near Emmerich can become too small. Other problems could be lower ground water levels and stability of structures in and near the river, like groynes. To diminish...

It has been found by many researchers that low frequency (LF) waves dominate the wave energy spectrum in very shallow water. Given that many longshore and cross-shore morphological processes are located within this zone, LF waves play an important role in determining morphological change, especially dune erosion and overwash during storm events....

Maasvlakte 2 is het project waarmee de haven van Rotterdam wordt uitgebreid. Het sluit direct aan op de huidige Maasvlakte. De havenbekkens van beide Maasvlaktes worden verbonden door de Yangtzehaven in westelijke richting door te steken naar Maasvlakte 2. De doorsteek bestaat uit een voorfase waarin een kanaal wordt gegraven ten behoeve van de...

This thesis has focussed on the validation of extreme wave and crest height distribution. The empirical distribution was simulated based on laboratory and field measurement water elevation data. Both sets of data indicated the presence of abnormal wave ensuring the extreme condition aimed at in this study. The literature review was performed to...

A study of the effectiveness of mangroves in attenuating cyclone- induced waves was done using the SWAN 40.55MOD numerical model. Hydraulic parameters during extreme events and local mangrove vegetation parameters were estimated for the Kanika Sands mangrove island near the upcoming Dhamra Port in Orissa, India. Simplified generic analyses were...
