Schepers, J.D. (author)
Er zijn door o.a. Vetlinga en Schepers proeven gedaan in een laboratoriumgoot ter bepaling van zandtransport in de voortplantingsrichting van golven onder invloed van die golven. Doel van deze proeven is om neer inzicht te krijgen in de opwoeling van het bcdemmateriaal aan de bcdem en op die manier in het zandtransportmechanisme . In al die...

In een modelgoot wordt door het golfschot naast een periodieke golf in het algemeen ook een stoorgolf opgewekt. Aangezien de voortplantingssnelheid van deze golven ongelijk is wordt door niet-lineaire interactie nog een golf opgewekt, de interactiegolf. Daardoor vertoont het totale golfbeeld een ruirntelijke periodiciteit die gekarakteriseerd...

In order to predict waterlevel changes in rivers due to floodwaves and local bedshapes for navigation, the local behaviour of the riverbed should be known . In many cases the bed of 3 river consists of dunes, which propagate downstream due to the sediment transport along the dunes . In this report mainly the watermovement but also the sediment...

In this report the sediment transport at Parachique, Peru, is calculated. This has been done in two different ways. First the Bijker method has been applied. This has been done by taking the significant wave height as representative for the wave spectrum and by chosing an equivalent wave height as representative for the significant wave height...

In many coastal, engineering problems the sediment transport plays a part. A transport gradient causes accretion or erosion. Various models, such as that of Bijker, Engelund and Hansen (van de Graaff and van Overeem, 1979) and Nielsen (1985) are available to estimate the sediment transport rate if the hydraulic and environmental conditions (wave...

Investigation to sediment transport rate in case of waves and currents, tests executed in the wave-current flume of the laboratory of Fluid mechanics of TU Delft. Sediment transport was measured using sand of 100 micron; comparison to similar tests with 200 micron sand.

Sediment transport causes morphological changes of coastal areas, and it is one of the most important objects in coastal engineering study. Recently, various experiments have been performed to investigate the sediment transport mechanism under a combination of waves and currents and to find the underlying relationships among various parameters...

Sediment transport by waves in the direction of the waves in relatively shallow water. Het onderzoek naar zandtransport in meest algemene Zin kent al een ruime historie. In eerste instantie lag het accent hierbij op bestudering van het zandtransportverschijnsel onder invloed van een permanente stroom, zoals in rivieren en kanalen. Daarbij is in...

The bed of some rivers partially consists of non-erodible layers. These non-erodible layers may become obstacles for navigation during the low-water period. To improve navigation development in the future, one can consider the removal of the non-erodible layers. To predict the morphological consequences due to these works, knowledge about the...

The rivers on the slopes of the Kelud volcano in Indonesia are marked by steep slopes and fine sediment. Therefore often supercritical flow and large sediment transports occur. In this exploratory study a mathematical model has been developed for this type of rivers. The properties of this model are examined with an analysis of the...

The present report contains a description of an experimental program, as a follow up of experiments by v.d. Kaaij and Nieuwjaar in 1986, and Nap and Van Kampen in 1987. As in the second study, in the present study a particle sand diameter of D50 = 100 mu was used, so that the experiments of Nap and Van Kampen will be referred as "the earlier 100...

Bij het doen van voorspellingen op lange termijn met morfologische modellen heeft men te maken met sterk variërende randvoorwaarden (b.v. golfhoogte, getij stroming). Als men bijvoorbeeld het jaarlijkse sedimenttransport in een gebied langs de kust wil bepalen moeten eigenlijk al deze variaties van de randvoorwaarden, in de berekeningen worden...

Cross-shore sediment transport is an important phenomenon in coastal engineering, which mainly accounts for the short-term changes in the coastline. To study on- and offshore transport the evolution of the beach profile is considered. For investigation of the beach profile small-scale physical models are often used. A problem in using a physical...

In this report a model has been derived to simulate morphological behaviour under tidal conditions. The model is based on the set of equations of motion and mass-balance for both water and sediment. The study focused on the underlying assumption that the kinematic response of the water movement on the bottom variation is much stronger than the...

The purpose of this study is to quantify the cross-shore sediment transport, caused by washover flows on barrier islands in general and on the Wai San Ting sandbar in Taiwan in particular. Washover transport on a barrier island is the transport of sediment across the sandbar f r om its steeper seaward face towards the gentler sloping landward or...

Coastal changes occur mostly as a result of changes in sediment transport along the coast. If at cross-section A, the sediment transport is for any reason larger (or smaller) than at cross-section B, accretion (or erosion) will take place in between the two cross-sections. For prediction of coast-lines in the future, the prediction of the net...

In one-dimensional river modelling it is common to schematise the cross-section into a rectangular cross-section with a constant width. If a quasi-steady flow is assumed, the equilibrium longitudinal profile is known and unique: the bottom slope is constant and equals the water surface slope. However, numerical calculations at DELFT HYDRAULICS...

The objective of the present work is to see whether the transport of sediment in a turbulent free surface flow can be studied with a new method of video image analysis, called the Two-Dimensional Particle Tracking Velocimetry. A slice of a two-dimensional turbulent flow in a laboratory flume is illuminated and particles are injected. After the...

In Nederland wordt, ter vervanging van de huidige ontwerpmethodiek op basis van een overschrijdingskans, gewerkt aan een nieuwe, probabilistische ontwerpnorm voor de zee- en rivierdijken. Deze nieuwe norm wordt gebaseerd op een risicobenadering. Hierbij bestaat het risiko uit de kans op een overstroming, gecombineerd met de schade die daardoor...

Van der Wal, R.J. (author)
Especially during storms the coast-profile can change dramatically. During storms large waves cause high oscillatory water velocities near the bottom and the bed becomes plane and sheet flow becomes the dominant sediment transport mode. Because field measurements are difficult to perform in-situ, laboratory experiments concerning these processes...
