Since 1986, the northern part of the Netherlands, particularly the Province of Groningen, experienced around 1000 registered minor earthquakes. The cause of these earthquakes is gas extraction. This type of earthquake, caused by human influence, is called induced earthquakes. The Netherlands is not located in a historically seismic active area,...

South of Vancouver, Canada, at the western front of the Fraser Delta lies Sturgeon Bank. The marsh on this intertidal area supports migratory birds and salmon, and it is part of the coastal protection of the city of Richmond. The marsh has faced severe recession of up to 500 m between 1989 – 2011 after having been stable for over 50 years. This...

The Colorado River with a total length of 2330 km is located in the Southwest of North America, originating from the Rocky Mountains and flowing into the Gulf of California. In 1963 the Glen Canyon Dam was built to generate hydropower. The construction of the dam caused several significant changes in the river system. One of these changes is the...

Bangladesh is characterised by its complex river system, which includes the downstream ends of two of the largest rivers in the world: the Ganges and Brahmaputra. Extremely variable flows and fast morphological changes are the principal characteristics of this system, which presents exceptional challenges for river engineering. Distributary...

Flooding is the most common and one of the most damaging natural hazards globally. It has severe societal, economic and environmental consequences. Damages from floods are expected to worsen with changing climate and increasing population andwealthworldwide. Within the last decades, advances in computational power and increases in the number of...

Around the world, areas with unique ecosystems are prone to harmful factors deteriorating their environment. Management of these areas need knowledge on the ecological status of these areas, to make decisions for future problems. They need easily accessible information on indicators describing the conditions of these areas. Obtaining this...

In many coastal seas, wind-generated waves produce a strong bottom orbital velocity which stirs up sand from the bottom. This process strongly influence sediment transport and bottom evolution. State-of-the-art morphodynamic models traditionally represent the stirring of sand by irregular waves in a highly parametric way. For instance, the...

In order to meet future energy demand, a more sustainable energy society is essential because fossil fuel reserves are depleting while the total energy consumption worldwide increases. One type of renewable energy which can play a role is ocean energy having the theoretical potential to exceed both current and future human energy needs. This...

River systems are vastly changing environments, not only due to natural process, but also human intervention plays an important role. With the many different river functions at play, large amounts of maintenance budgets are associated with river management. For decision makers it is important to know expected costs or losses and the spread...

Wave overtopping in harbour areas is a fairly untreated topic in the context of flood risk analyses. Pragmatic approaches were undertaken to evaluate the possible influence of wave overtopping on the frequency of flooding. However no consensus was reached on how wave overtopping in a harbour area could be quantified. Therefore it is also...

In order to accurately predict passing vessel interaction forces, different simulation tools have been developed over the years. Many of these are based on a double body flow approach. MARIN (a hydrodynamic research institute located in the Netherlands) developed a simulation tool called the FlowInteraction (FI) module, which is part of the...

Estuaries are complex systems that show a variety of hydrodynamic conditions. These conditions are influenced by bathymetry, geometry, climate characteristics, interacting fresh and salt water flows, and mixing effects caused by winds and wind-waves. The interaction between fresh and salt water flows in combination with mixing effects caused by...

To protect the hinterland, flood defences are often located on the border between water and land. This same border however is also an attractive place to live, which may hamper improvement of flood protections. Closing off a tidal (river) system, especially in case of little discharge, may in this case be a logical consideration. This would...

Robustness is a hard-to-grip concept within engineering. This master thesis uses a framework to quantify the level of robustness that has been proposed by the Joint Committee on Structural Safety to assess the influence of the reliability requirement of a structural element. The lock complex at Weurt (the Netherlands) has been used for a case...

The study into sand wave dynamics in South Channel has commenced after large dune forms were observed in monitoring campaigns following the channel deepening project of the Port of Melbourne. The project involved deepening of the harbour berths and channels, but more importantly, it involved the deepening of South Channel in Port Phillip Bay....

The main objective of this study is the realisation of a computer tool. The function of the tool is to estimate the required dimensions and quantities of essential container, dry and liquid bulk terminal elements, in an early design phase. As well as to give an estimate of the construction costs of these marine terminals. Terminal element...

Over the past centuries natural riverbanks have been transformed into banks with artificial revetments or sheet piles to protect them from erosion, which led to disappearance of important river features for flora and fauna. River restoration projects show that the removal of man-made bank protections may lead to the formation of bars (e.g. Van...
