Kuantan, a city on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, faces two main problems. First, the fishing port of Kuantan, in the mouth of the river Sungai Kuantan, has the difficulty of a shallow port entrance. Secondly, the city Kuantan wants to stimulate tourism, for example by building a recreation park at the coastal area. This report...

Visakhapatnam is one of the major ports along the east coast of India. An outer harbar in 1976 is constructed to accomadate large ships and to meet the requirements of the ever growing industries of Visakhapatnam. For the maintainance of the Visakhapatnam outer harbour(VOH) two breakwaters are constructed at the south and east end of the harbar....

From the ten breakwaters we selected, on the amount of reliable information available, one breakwater in Richards Bay, South Africa. The preliminary check, made in the first phase, showed the design of this breakwater was rather conservative. From surveys done on the breakwater although, it appeared that the armor-layer was damaged in storms...

In the framework of a Human Capital and Mobility Project called "Dynamics of Beaches, experiments with the aim of solving unknown aspects of submerged breakwaters have been carried out by six European universities. Agreements were made considering the layout of the breakwater, the wave conditions and the initial bottom profile. This report...

This report is the result of the Master thesis of the author, at Delft University of Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering. The study was performed at DELFT HYDRAULICS, in cooperation with Boskalis Westminster Dredging BV. Despite the many studies and experiments that have already been performed on the subject of low-crested breakwaters, one...

Since the awareness that the conventional energy sources will run short, the use of various renewable energy sources has been investigated, these are solar, wind, ocean and geothennal energy. Quite some countries are interested in wave energy conversion. In several countries some full-scale wave energy converting pilot plants have been tested....

In deze studie zijn voor een fictieve golfbreker lay-out in relatief ondiep water de totale projectkosten tijdens de geplande levensduur van een conventionele stortstenen golfbreker, een caissongolfbreker en een samengestelde golfbreker vergeleken. De totale golfbrekerlengte van deze lay-out is circa 4000 m en strekt zich uit tot in een...

The need for coastal structures, such as breakwaters, at great water depths is rapidly increasing as a result ofthe increasing draught of large vessels and off-shore land reclamations which can, for instance, be used for the benefit of the expansion of harbours and related industrial activities. In water depths greater than approximately 10 m...

Vertical breakwaters are used in the design of harbours to create a protective area. This protective area can be an approach channel or the harbour itself. Because of large new projects, such as Maasvlakte 11 in the Netherlands and the increasing sizes of ships, many harbours have to be placed in deep water. Deep water requires higher...

In Europe the interest in and the importance of vertical breakwaters is growing. A central point is the optimal geometry, e.g. the width and height of the breakwater caisson chosen such that the total costs over the lifetime of the structure are minimized. Probabilistic design tools provide several methods to determine the probability of failure...

Voorstudie Om de leidende rol die de haven van Rotterdam in de wereldhandel heeft te kunnen handhaven is het noodzakelijk voor de komende decennia ruimte te creeren in de nabijheid van de haven. Dit kan door het aanleggen van een tweede Maasvlakte, een landaanwinning in zee. Het is mogelijk gebleken deze Maasvlakte 2 technisch, morfologisch,...

This report is the result of a master thesis ofthe author, student at Delft University ofTechnology, Faculty of Civil Engineering. In this report a simulation oftests with submerged breakwaters, parallel to the shoreline, in a wave basin, are carried out with the morphodynamic model Delft2D-MOR. This 2-dimensional horizontal model was developed...

Recently, interest in vertical breakwaters has grown. The development of ports from natural small harbours to artificial large harbours facing the outer sea has demanded the construction of breakwaters in rougher seas. The vertical breakwater could play a role of importance in this development. To obtain general guidelines for the design of...

Een teenconstructie van een golfbreker is het deel van een golfbreker dat zich aan de onderzijde van het golfbrekertalud bevindt. Een teenconstructie geeft steun aan het voortalud van de golfbreker en voorkomt, samen met andere golfbrekeronderdelen, het wegspoelen van constructiemateriaal en ondergrond vanonder een golfbreker. Bij het...

This study comprises the design of the reconstruction of the main breakwater of the Tripoli Harbour in Libya. Tripoli harbour is one of the oldest harbours of North Africa situated on the Southern coast of Mediterranean Sea. The harbour as it existed in 1972 was built at the beginning of this century and was protected by two main breakwaters....

In een gebied als Nederland met een relatiefflauw oplopende kust, heeft de conventionele stortstenen golfbreker in het verleden de voorkeur gekregen boven andere typen golfbrekers. Binnen de brekerzone wordt de golfhoogte begrensd door de waterdiepte, wat de keuze ten aanzien van de conventioneIe stortstenen golfbreker bevestigt aangezien de...

Onderzoek naar de inzet van materieel voor het transport van stenen over water, ten behoeve van de bouw van een golfbreker. Vanuit de praktijk (Boskalis) is de vraag gekomen om het bakkentransportproces, zoals dat plaatsvindt bij de bouw van offshore golfbrekers, nader te bestuderen. De reden daarvan is, dat de berekende productie met behulp van...

Although a lot is known nowadays about the run-up on smooth and impermeable slopes as well as the run-up on slopes covered with a rock armour layer, the physical properties of the armour layer of a rubble mound breakwater are not incorporated in the relations describing the run-up on a breakwater’s slope. The roughness of a slope and its...
