Using an idealized width-averaged model, the influence of spring-neap cycles on the transport and trapping of suspended fine sediment in tide-dominated estuaries is investigated. To this end we introduce a multiple time scale expansion. This provides a mathematically sound argument for treating the fast ebb-flood cycle and the slow spring-neap...

This thesis research has been conducted to analyse the sediment dynamics in the Yangon Estuary, in order to define the cause for the sedimentation in Monkey Point Channel. For years, Yangon Port has been suffering from limited accessibility due to the sedimentation in the channel and currently daily dredging is required in order to let ships...

To exploit its socio-economic functions, engineering measures are regularly applied in estuaries. Estuaries are, however, known to be very complex systems. Stemming from this complexity is the generation of a so-called estuarine turbidity maximum (ETM), which poses great siltation problems to the engineering measures. An engineering measure,...

In this thesis the hydrodynamic behaviour of an idealised relatively short tidal estuary is studied using a cross-sectionally averaged model, i.e. a one dimensional model. The geometry of the estuary is simplified and only the hydrodynamic processes are considered. This model is used to gain insight in the behaviour of currents and water levels...

Estuaries have always been important for mankind and therefore it is essential to have a good understanding of the flow and sediment dynamics there. The goal of this thesis is twofold. One objective is to use an existing model to gain a more thorough understanding of the flow dynamics in an estuary. The second objective is to extend the model...
