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...

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...

This study investigates wave driven onshore sandbar migration. Observations show that sandbars move onshore during mild wave conditions. Literature describes different potential sediment mechanisms that cause this onshore migration, but the dominant cause is still under debate. The goal of the present study is to determine the dominant sediment...

During Abandonment and Recovery (A&R) operations, steel wire ropes (figure 1) can experience torsional deformation. This deformation is a result of the helical configuration and the tension gradient in the rope due to its self-weight. The latter is very high when the ropes are used in deep water operations. Since the static component of the...

In the Netherlands almost 17.500 kilometers of primary flood defenses protect the flood prone areas from inundation. These flood defenses are designed and periodically assessed according to certain design standards which require an average probability of exceedance of 1/1.250 or 1/10.000 per year. From the results of recent assessments, it was...

The coastal protection system of the Dutch low-lying hinterland is under increasing pressure due to growing population and high economic value combined with climate change and a rising sea level. Supplying sand to dunes, beach and shoreface by means of nourishments is a widely applied technique to increase coastal safety. Climate change and a...

It is a well known fact that the international dredging industry is of major importance. As the dredging industry has made a significant contribution to the development of many world economies through the construction and maintenance of harbors, canals, and waterways. The construction and maintenance of waterways depths is a continuous process...

The fairway connecting Holwerd and Nes forms the main transport route between Friesland and Ameland (the Dutch Wadden Sea). It consists of several tidal channels that funnel the majority of the tidal currents propagating through the tidal basin. Over the past decades, several channel bends have expanded leading to a fairway length-increase of...

After the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, oil was released into the Gulf of Mexico and partly reached the shorelines. Here, it mixed with sand in the surf zone to form sand and oil agglomerates (SOAs). These cm-sized particles are heavier than water and are therefore found on the seabed. Years after the initial formation of these particles,...

220 miles offshore the West-Australian coast lies the Ichthys Field. In 2013 Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) was contracted to install the umbilicals, risers and flowlines for the Ichthys Project, including the installation of several in-line structures such as in-line tees (ILT) and flow-line end terminations (FLET). The ship assigned to these...

A crown wall is a gravity based L- shaped concrete structure on top of a rubble mound breakwater. Functions of a crown wall are: reduction of wave overtopping, enable transport on the breakwater and placement of pipelines on top of the flat surface. Marine contractor Van Oord was awarded to extend a breakwater with a crown wall on top, located...
