This report is the result of a master thesis of the author, student at Delft University of Technology, faculty of Civil Engineering. The study was carried out at DELFT HYDRAULICS. In this report the effects of an offshore breakwater on the shore are investigated with the morphodynamic models DELFT2D-MOR and DELFT3D. These, respectively 2...

Onder de rook van het Rotterdamse havengebied ligt het Haringvliet. Het Haringvliet is het bovenste estuarium van de Nederlandse rivierendelta en is in 1970 met een dam afgesloten. Deze Haringvlietdam is uitgevoerd met spuisluizen. Het gebied aan de zeezijde van de dam, de monding van het Haringvliet, is door deze ingreep sterk veranderd en is...

Onderdeel van dit project is het simuleren van het morfologisch gedrag van ren van de drempels, de Drempel van Hansweert, met een morfologisch computermodel. Dit verslag beschrijft de eerste van twee fasen van dit projekt waarin de modelbouw en de simulatie van de huidige situatie wordt beschreven. In de tweede fase zullen diverse...

DHV heeft een numeriek stromings- en sedimentatiemodel gebruikt voor een studie naar de de hydraulische, morfologische en ecologische effecten van spuien van water door de slufter "het Zwin" in Zee1and. Naar aanleiding van deze studie ontstonden enkele vragen met betrekking tot de modellering van sedimentatie en erosie op droogvallende platen....

Een onderzoek naar de morfologische veranderingen in het Friesche Zeegat. Na de afsluiting van de Lauwerszee is het bekken continu in verandering. Dit heeft gevolgen voor de bevaarbaarheid van de vaarroute naar Schiermonnikoog. In dit onderzoek wordt een voorspelling gedaan naar de ontwikkelingen voor het komend decennium en de gevolgen van deze...

The aim of this research is to determine to what extend the scour holes limit the sediment transport through the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier and whether or not human adaptations, like sand-nourishments in the scour holes, can have a positive effect on the sediment import. To investigate these scenarios a numerical model (Delft3D) is used...

Coastal monitoring: Bathymetric surveys of an area of 1 square kilometer of the shoreface near Ter Heijde have been perfomed using the NEMO Jetski. Instruments installed are a Single Beam Echo Sounder (SBES) for depth measurements and accurate GPS for positioning (RTK-GPS). The quality of the Jetski as a platform for bathymetric surveys has been...

The Westerschelde estuary in the South-West of the Netherlands displays two meandering flood and ebb channels separated by shoals. The system of flood, ebb channel and shoal between two channel crossings form a morphological cell. The stability of the serial cell system formed by the Westerschelde is important for the navigation route to the...

Maasvlakte 2 is het project waarmee de haven van Rotterdam wordt uitgebreid. Het sluit direct aan op de huidige Maasvlakte. De havenbekkens van beide Maasvlaktes worden verbonden door de Yangtzehaven in westelijke richting door te steken naar Maasvlakte 2. De doorsteek bestaat uit een voorfase waarin een kanaal wordt gegraven ten behoeve van de...

The Colorado River in the Grand Canyon area has a lot of sandbars but they are eroding. Since the building of the Glen Canyon Dam and the Hoover Dam in the 1960s, sediment is trapped in the upstream lake. The inflow of water is clear, cold and nearly sediment free. The only noticeable remaining inflow of sediment in the Colorado River is by two...

Since the completion of the Eastern Scheldt project in 1987, in the south-western part of The Netherlands, there has been a decrease of tidal volume, range and current in the Eastern Scheldt estuary. This has led to morphologic changes in the basin. The channels are in demand of sediment and as the Eastern Scheldt barrier itself blocks most of...

Hydraulic structures are present in the designs of different Room for the River projects in the Netherlands. Examples are longitudinal weirs, groins, summer dikes and weirs in the inlet of a side channel. Morphological simulations with Delft3D are frequently carried out to investigate the effect of such projects on for example hindrance for...

Long-term prediction of sediment transport and morphology has become increasingly important. One of the key issues in carrying out long-term modeling is to bridge the gap between short-term hydrodynamics varying from hours to days, and morphological changes, taking place over much longer periods. Lesser et al. (2004) and Roelvink (2006) have...

The area of New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. A large part of the city got flooded due to bad design, construction and maintenance of the levee system. In order to increase the level of protection of the city, the levees are heightened and strengthened in the framework of the Hurricane and Storm Damage and Risk Reduction...

Due to growing human activity in coastal zones, there is an increasing stress on salt marshes all over the world. These intertidal wetlands were often seen as coastal ‘wasteland’ and large areas were reclaimed for urban development and agriculture. In Puget Sound, a system of interconnected marine waterways and basins in the northwest of the...

During the fall of 2003, an extensive measurement campaign called the “Nearshore Canyon Experiment” (NCEX) was set up along the coast of La Jolla, California. The project site covered an area in which two submarine canyons are located, respectively La Jolla and Scripps Submarine Canyon. Over 20 institutions collaborated on recording the...

With the construction of a process-based long-term morphological model (Delft3D) for the Mouth of the Columbia River (MCR), a first approach is made in trying to simulating the long-term morphodynamics of the MCR. Focus is on simulating the observed morphological changes for the post-jetty period of 1926-1958. The model is supplied with a high...

The wetlands in the Mississippi delta (USA) are drastically subsiding and eroding. Many projects and researches are ongoing to determine how this “drowning effect” of the delta can be stopped. One of the solutions that could be feasible is implementing sediment diversions in the levees of the Lower Mississippi River in order to divert sediment...
