As a useful tool in understanding the coastal behaviours, one-line models , which are designed to simulate the long-term shoreline evolution in response to imposed wave conditions, coastal structures, and other engineering activities such as beach nourishment, have been developed and applied to a wide range of projects in coastal engineering and...

The objective of this study is to propose a method that is able to deal with data poor environments within coastal studies. Numerical models are useful tools to get insight in the coastal processes of the system being modelled. Inaccurate or poor input data leads to inaccurate or even incorrect model results. By stochastic modelling insight is...

Shore-parallel submerged breakwaters (SBWs) appear as an attractive form of coastal protection. Compared to their emergent counterpart there is no impact on the beach amenity and aesthetics. In addition, there is a possibility for recreational purposes. However, the actual application of SBWs is often discouraged because the complexity of the...

Floating breakwaters (FBs) have been widely used as an alternative solution to protect coastal sites especially small harbors and certain areas which are not suitable for rubble mound breakwaters. Floating breakwater cannot completely stop the incident wave action. Instead, it attenuates the wave action by partially transmitting, partially...

This paper has been written for everyone that is interested in the topic of energy and consists of part one and part two. Attempted has been to write this paper in such a way so that it’s easy to follow for everyone. Part one, the non-technical part, should be an easy read for everyone. Part two, on the other hand, is a technical report,...

This thesis focusses on the north-eastward shifting beach at Brouwersdam, which poses a problem for users and stakeholders of the beach. This trend is likely to continue in the foreseeable future and could result in a beach that can no longer fulfil its current functions, like recreation and tourism. Analysis of bathymetric data from the last...

Two typical types of channels are identified on the PIANC rules (one and two-way channel) and a detailed set of rules for conceptual design purposes is presented. Nevertheless, no explicit definition about when to use which type of channel is provided. For assessing the performance of an access channel, a new simulation model is programmed. This...

In the time when the World can experience volatility of international trade due to World economic crisis, concentration of the shipping industry and liberalisation of transport markets, port competition is becoming fiercer over the time. In such an environment, freight forwarders’ role is becoming more and more important, representing a valuable...

At the entrance of the IJzer River estuary in Belgium a storm surge barrier is being constructed. This raises a couple questions: At what safety level can the barrier best be built? What barrier type suits the specific site conditions the best? What are the consequences of a storm surge barrier at that location, and how can they be solved? This...

The port of Beira is an essential driver for economic growth in Mozambique. Its location, with strong connections to the hinterland, creates a promising future for the further development of the port. The port authority requires a new port master plan in order to optimise throughput over available ground and (wet) infrastructure, and to extend...

Bronsvoort, K. (author)
Sedimentation in reservoirs is a consequence of constructing a barrier in a flowing river, which results in a decrease of the transport capacity of the river. The storage capacity of the reservoir decreases due to the accumulation of sediments and the river downstream starts to erode due to the disturbance of the sediment balance. Water...

Dit rapport richt zich op het ontwerp van een permanente en duurzame onderbouw voor het offshore hoogspanningsstation ALPHA in de vorm van een kunstmatig eiland. Het eiland ALPHA zal dienen als een “stopcontact” voor de windparken voor de Belgische kust. Het doel is om de ontwerpcomponenten die van het belang zijn bij het ontwerp van een...

Traditional quay wall structures are not very flexible, because they are often hard to adapt and to reuse. However, changes in the container shipping market, international conflicts and new generations of vessels are some examples that could drive the desire the relocate or adapt quay wall structures. The objective of this thesis is to design a...

Introduction While the world moves towards modern renewable energy sources, these sources are not always available which makes them unreliable. At the same time, problems of balancing the daily peak-demand is still performed with expensive fossil fueled units. Sitting perfectly in between supply and demand is a solution with the potential of...

The Mississippi River is one of the most engineered rivers in the world. Levees, bank revetments and training dikes ensure navigability and safety against ?ooding. Construction of dams in the upstream branches led to a decay in sediment supply of 70% during the last 100 years. Due to man-made constrictions, more sediment is spilled out in the...

Recently an unstructured version of Delft3D, named D-Flow FM, has been developed at Deltares. This tool shows high potentials for coastal modelling due to the flexibility in domain resolution and unstructured grids. This MSc thesis focussed on implementing wave effects in D-Flow FM with satisfying results. In addition, a coupling system is built...

The objective of this thesis is to investigate the role of different hydrodynamic and morphological factors influencing sediment transport patterns at the Sand Motor in order to give insight in processes controlling the short-term sand bar morphodynamics and the long term development of the Sand Motor. The work presents an analysis of the...

Hardly any flood defence system is a continuous dike system, since it is often interrupted by non-water retaining structures, as for example stairs, buildings, roads, fences and trees. Also larger hydraulic structures as floodgates and sluices are sometimes situated in the dike alignment. The transition between these different objects and the...

This study is aiming to improve the understanding of hydrodynamic circulation in large shallow lakes. The Lake Taihu, the third largest lake in east China, is picked up as the study area for three reasons. The basin of Lake Taihu is considered as the most populated and developed area as a backyard of Shanghai. Lake Taihu is a typical shallow...
