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...

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 safety of a large part of the Netherlands is dependent on the safety level of our flood protections. The height and volume of the dunes and the near shore zone influence this safety level. Robust dunes have provided natural safety against the sea for centuries. In the last centuries, structural erosion of the coastline and the increase of...

The Colombian government aims to establish a connection that bridges the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. The new connection will largely take place on the current Atrato River, which has not yet been upgraded for a more extensive use of navigation in the near future. A bottleneck in the river is the delta area. Without structural dredging...

The long series (>30 year) of measurement data of erosion events at Narrabeen beach (NWS, Australia) provides insight in erosion volumes and their return periods in this area. The aim of this study was to replicate these data using XBeach in order to assess the validity of both the Joint Probability Model (JPM) and XBeach on beaches such as...

Access channels (entrance channels) to ports are a relevant part of port facilities, and they have a strong influence on the port operations as well. However, little information is available about their analysis and design regarding the wave interaction with access channels. This study is focused on the interaction of waves with entrance...

This project focuses on studying and modelling the flow in the sailing area of the 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition, located partly in Portland Harbour and partly in Weymouth Bay, in order to provide accurate and reliable current forecasts for the Dutch Olympic Sailing Team. From literature it follows that the main flow in the area is the tidal...

The environmental impacts caused by suspended sediments are an important issue in the environmental impact assessment (EIA) of dredging and reclamation projects. This thesis is restricted to provide insight into the emission of suspended sediment particles due to the release of return water. This water is used to pump dredged material to the...

A way to equalize granular rockfill dumps at a sea or river bed is the use of a plough. A plough can be modeled as a set of straight blades in sequence. Several cutting models for dry and saturated sand are present in the literature. In cutting coarse material, the increase in pore water pressures caused by dilatancy of the grain structure play...

Door verstedelijking staat de infrastructuur in de provincie Zuid-Holland onder druk. Woon-werkverkeer en goederentransport zorgen dagelijks voor congestie op de wegen in de Randstad, versterkt door de groeiende vraag naar verplaatsingsmogelijkheden. Waar het wegen- en spoornetwerk onvoldoende reservecapaciteit heeft, biedt het vaarwegennetwerk...

Container traffic has grown exponentially since 1980 and has become a reliable and efficient means of transportation of goods. In addition, world wide containerization and the availability of cheap and frequent container transport to all corners of the world have had a profound influence on industrial production, transport and the environment....

The Ecobeach project is a newly invented method to defend the coast against erosion. Ecobeach is a coastal defense system based on the principle of passively draining the beach. This Thesis looks into possible morphological changes induced by the Ecobeach test at Egmond aan Zee performed by Rijkswaterstaat and BAM.

The coast of Bulgaria is subject to erosion. Because of this fact, around the town of Balchik, which is situated on the Black Sea coast, almost no sandy beaches are present. Last years there have been vast tourist developments in and around Balchik. Because of these developments, the province demands solutions to adapt coastal protection...

Breakwaters are important for the preservation and development of coastal areas. Submerged breakwaters have significant advantages compared to emerged, such as economical construction and preservation, milder effect on landscape and under conditions, preservation of marine flora and fauna inside it. The main objective of this study is to give...

Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is one of the most important cities in Vietnam; it is the largest city and the economic centre of the country. Currently HCMC is facing two main problems: frequent flooding of the city and salt intrusion in the Dong Thap Muoi region. Most floods are the result of monthly high tides that hinder the discharge of rain and...

Nowadays, the ecological effects of dredge plumes are usually managed based on the precautionary principle. Predictions of suspended sediment levels are made, which have to be compared to thresholds set by the responsible authority. Failing to comply may cause a project to be delayed and thus lead to additional costs. The precautionary principle...

Immersion of tunnels is an often used technique in rivers and canals. The transport of tunnel elements can be done under offshore conditions, but immersing the elements under these conditions is not common practise. The tunnel elements of the Busan-Geoje Fixed Link in South Korea were immersed in such a situation. During this process, several...
