Reuber, J. (author)
The subject of this master thesis is to present the processes taking place at the erosion of a fluid mud layer due to entrainment, to carry out experiments in an annular flume and compare the results of these experiments with a numerical model, which has been elaborated at the TU Delft. The report can be devided into five parts: physical and...

From February to April 1999, wave-blocking experiments have been conducted at the Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands as a part of the Ph.D. research of I.K. Suastika. Wave blocking is a special case of wave-current interaction. It can occur when waves...

In this report a study is presented concerning the morphological impact of breakwater structures perpendicular to a coast. This study was initially associated with the Indian coast between Chennai (formerly known as Madras) and Ennore in India. Like many ports, the harbour of Chennai had, and still has a considerable morphological impact on the...

Computer models are commonly used to simulate the behaviour of the coast in response to natural processes (e.g. storms, extreme sea levels) or management plans (e.g. beach nourishment, channel dredging). The COAST3D project was initiated to improve and validate these numerical models. COAST3D stands for Coastal Study of ThreeDimensional Sand...

The Dutch coast at Egmond is a highly dynamic region where nourishments of sand are necessary to compensate erosion. In comparison with neigbouring coastal areas the necessary nourishment frequency is relatively high. The latest intervention concerns a combined beach- and shoreface nourishment in the spring and summer of 1999. In order to...

Violation of safety procedures by operators is an important cause of accidents. To prevent violations effectively a thorough understanding of the operators' decision making process is required. This research proposes a method to create a personal model that predicts the action the operator would take based on the state of the system. We strive...

Kantoortypologie. Er kunnen geen verschillende typen kantoorgebouw worden onderscheiden, maar wel een aantal typologische eigenschappen, die kenmerkend zijn voor kantoorgebouwen die gebouwd zijn in de periode 1965-1985. Als de constante eigenschappen worden weggelaten, blijven er 19 variabelen over die het kantoorgebouw beschrijven en 18...

The primary objective of this thesis is to generate a 2DH-numerical model to simulate dune overwash. The first stage in this is achieved by modifying the program code of an existing overwash model in development, XBeach, to enable 2DH calculations. In the second stage the hydrodynamics of the model are verified using theoretical and laboratory...

In this report a model for the ingrowth of a prosthesis in a bone will be formulated and simulated. First an overview is given of all the biological processes that are part of this healing process and what external factors can influence this process. Then a first mathematical model is presented in which the mechanical stimuli (one of the...

With the use of the process-based geological model Delft3D a base case model is set up to simulate the Brent delta using Gullfaks field conditions as appeared during the Aalenian and Bajocian periods in the Mid-Jurassic. The aim is to visualize and comprehend the morphology and stratigraphy of the base case upon changing both wave conditions and...

The ORTEC Consulting Group (OCG) advises express service providers on efficient network design. A part of the challenge to this design is the hub location problem (HLP). The HLP consists of selecting optimal locations for large sorting centres (hubs) from a range of smaller sorting centres (depots) to which the rest of these depots can connect....

An overdose of sediment from the Cilalawi River is going into the reservoir Waduk Jatiluhur. This is resulting in the problem of reservoir capacity reduction. With water still coming from different rivers, the future will be inundation. In this matter the recommendation for this problem is check dam(s) and changing land use, stated by the local...

In the past decades there has been a steep increase in global trade. The current crises however emphasize that trends can change quickly and have a lasting effect on the economy. Due to their large, long term investments, ports in particular need a good understanding of the future state of transport and logistics systems. Scenario based modeling...

In 2010, a realignment of the main channel of the Maumusson inlet, France, is observed. This breach of the ebb-delta is observed not long after a severe storm that afflicted the Charente-Maritime region in February 2010; Xynthia. A strong link between the breach and the Xynthia storm is expected: a storm event driven breach. In order to assess...

Tidal inlet systems, as found in the Dutch Wadden Sea, often feature both sand and mud. Due to differences in sediment properties, sand and mud particles respond different to identical forcing conditions, like short waves and tidal currents. Because of this, sand and mud can get transported to different locations. This process is referred to by...

Today, timber structures are receiving attention more and more. Because of the increasing interest in sustainable construction as well as for other reasons, building industry in Europe is (re)-discovering multi-storey timber structures for construction of mid-rise buildings. In this master’s thesis, an analytical calculation method and modelling...

The design of current industrial crystallizers is strongly focused on optimisation of known types of crystallization equipment. To get a better control over the physical events governing crystalline product quality the TU Delft started with the development of a task based design (TBD) strategy, which is an example of a phenomena based approach....
