Student project report, in cooperation with Smith-Warner International Ltd. (SWIL), Kingston, Jamaica. At this moment the shipping channels in Kingston Harbour, Jamaica, slowly accrete. When the harbour is expanded, the local and global sediment transport is likely to change. During this project it is investigated whether these changes are...

Valdivia is a Chilean city located near an estuary system, 800 km south of Santiago. The navigation capacity of the Valdivia river mainly determines the present state and future possibilities for the welfare of the city. Since sedimentation problems arose in the river, the capacity for navigation became limited. The ministry of Valdivia...

The Lai Giang inlet located in Binh Dinh province incorporates various features of the estuaries in the Central part of Vietnam. Belonging to the micro-tidal and wave-dominant coast and influenced by the monsoon regime, the inlet has a seasonal character. During the dry season, as the river flow diminishes, the wave action causes high level of...

Om flora en fauna de kans te geven zich langs scheepvaartwegen te vestigen en voort te planten zijn natuurvriendelijke oevers nodig. Voor kanalen is een speciale natuurvriendelijke oever ontworpen : de natte strook. Tijdens onderzoeken naar het functioneren van de natte strook is een verondieping hiervan geconstateerd, hetgeen, in verband met...

Siltation of harbour basins and navigation channels is a serious problem in the port of Rotterdam as well in many other harbours all over the world. Due to siltation, basins and channels require frequent maintenance dredging to guarantee safe navigational depths. The costs associated with these dredging activities are quite high. To keep the...

Embedding of subsea pipelines for protection purposes is usually done in a ‘Trench – Install – Backfill’ operation. The pipeline can also be embedded after it is installed on the seabed. This method is called post-trenching. When using a trailer suction hopper dredger for post-trenching, a large water jet erodes the soil underneath the pipe...

Due to the predicted impacts of climate change on the frequency of storm events, water managers are challenged to improve and adapt the current urban infrastructure. Cities need to be able to deal with the adverse effects due to more frequent and heavier rainfall. This implies the need for sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) that can deal...

In this study the river migration model MIANDRAS has been applied to simulations of the planform changes of the river Allier, a tributary of the river Loire in France. The Allier is a very dynamic and natural river system with braided and meandering river sections. Two meandering reaches of the Allier, located between Varennes-sur-Allier and...

Sedimentation in reservoirs is a consequence of constructing a barrier in a flowing river, which results in a decrease of the transport capacity of the river. The storage capacity of the reservoir decreases due to the accumulation of sediments and the river downstream starts to erode due to the disturbance of the sediment balance. Water...

Maintenance dredging, as a result of port and channel sedimentation, can have a large share in overall maintenance costs of a port. A smart design can minimize the amount of maintenance dredging and thus improve the profitability of a port but also the long-term sustainability. As the preliminary design stages are often decisive for the final...
