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...

A cobble sea defence appears to be an easy constructible protection, with relatively low total costs of ownership. Flume tests show that sand under such single layered constructions is stable. However, it is not exactly known how the hydraulic loading of a breaking wave is reducing in the filter. Two datasets containing pressure measurements in...

The nearshore zone is an active zone that can be quite inhospitable to humans due to violent wave breaking and strong rip currents. Rip currents are shore normal jet-like currents that typically extend from near the shoreline out past the line of breaking waves. Observations have concluded that a rip current system generally consists of 4 parts....

During the fall of 2003, an extensive measurement campaign called the “Nearshore Canyon Experiment” (NCEX) was set up along the coast of La Jolla, California. The project site covered an area in which two submarine canyons are located, respectively La Jolla and Scripps Submarine Canyon. Over 20 institutions collaborated on recording the...

Door de klimaatveranderingen voorziet de Deltacommissie 2008 problemen voor het Rijnmond gebied. De Maeslantkering en andere stormvloedkeringen zullen vaker moeten sluiten. Ook zullen de rivierafvoeren vaker extreme waardes aannemen. De kans dat een stormvloed samenvalt met een extreem hoge rivierafvoer neemt daarom toe. In het geval van een...

Landslide generated Tsunamis are classified as a type of impulse waves. Several parameters including the geometry of the reservoir affect the behavior of impulse waves. The effects of geometry on impulse wave parameters are not yet fully understood. In order to investigate the effects of geometry on landslide generated impulse waves a total of...

Along the northern coast of Morocco order has been given for the construction of a large transshipment port in the Mediterranean Sea, at a designated project location around the city of Nador. On this green-field coastal stretch a new transhipment port will have to be developed for various types of cargo. Throughputs of the terminals will have...

In many coastal engineering problems the application of coastal structures to resolve these problems seems to be a proper solution. In a lot of cases, however, the implementation of coastal structures does not lead to the expected situation. Erosion management operations may have unwanted impacts on a coastal system. Decisions on the most...

Currently there are 20,000 to 40,000 yachts in Kuwait. The majority of these yachts is stored on land because the number of berths in Kuwait is not sufficient to accommodate them all. Besides yachts, there are approximately 1,000 fishing vessels in Kuwait. The facilities for fishermen are not of sufficient quality. To overcome these problems,...

In September and October of the year 2009, three sandgroyne nourishments have been executed at the Delfland Coast near the village of Ter Heijde. The nourishments have been executed to restore the sediment buffer in the upper part of the coastal profile. A sandgroyne is a concentrated amount of sediment (200.000m3) artificially nourished from...

In 2008 kwam de tweede Deltacommissie met het voorstel om het waterpeil van het IJsselmeer in de toekomst met 1,5 m te verhogen. Door de verwachte zeespiegelstijging zal het namelijk steeds moeilijker worden om het overtollige water van het IJsselmeer af te voeren naar zee. Om dit onder vrij verval te kunnen blijven doen is een peilopzet...

Due to growing human activity in coastal zones, there is an increasing stress on salt marshes all over the world. These intertidal wetlands were often seen as coastal ‘wasteland’ and large areas were reclaimed for urban development and agriculture. In Puget Sound, a system of interconnected marine waterways and basins in the northwest of the...

In 2000 the Dutch government chose a new point of view for the Dutch rivers: “Room for the River”. This viewpoint is the basis for a new approach of high water protection in the Netherlands. Instead of strengthening and raising the dikes, solutions must be based on space and spatial quality. One of the suggested measures is the addition of...

For a proper management of rivers and river bends in particular, it is important to have good models to predict the flows through bends. It is important that those developed models are well validated with measurements to demonstrate the usefulness of the models. This research is a validation of the Delft3D-FLOW model which is a model that is...

Process-based morphological models are widely recognised as a valuable tool for predicting coastal and estuarine morphological developments. However, long-term morphodynamic models are still considered to be in the process of development. Considerable uncertainty is therefore anticipated when these models are being applied in long-term estuarine...

Against the background of enhanced hydraulic loads due to climate change there will be a need for improvement of the flood defence system in the Netherlands in the future. These days there is a growing interest in grass as a dike cover because it is a cheap and a sustainable dike protection. Yet at the moment there is a hiatus in the knowledge...

The Eastern Scheldt tidal basin and its ebb tidal delta have changed drastically in the recent centuries under the influence of natural processes and human interventions. A Storm Surge Barrier, one of constructions within framework of Delta Project in the Eastern Scheldt, is considered as the largest impact to changes in hydrodynamics and...

In dit rapport wordt een probabilistisch (diepte-) ontwerp gepresenteerd voor het binnengebied van de haven van Rotterdam. Ook worden de mogelijke faalmechanismen (bodemberoering en verminderd manoeuvreerbaarheid) bestudeerd. Als referentie modellen zijn bestudeerd de modellen Harap en Protide van Rijkswaterstaat, en CADET van US Army Corps of...

The Lai Giang inlet located in Binh Dinh province incorporates various features of the estuaries in the Central part of Vietnam. Belonging to the micro-tidal and wave-dominant coast and influenced by the monsoon regime, the inlet has a seasonal character. During the dry season, as the river flow diminishes, the wave action causes high level of...
