This article highlights recent developments in flood risk management in the Netherlands and presents approaches for reliability analysis and asset management for flood defences and hydraulic infrastructure. The functioning of this infrastructure is of great importance for the country as large parts of it are prone to flooding. Based on a...

Population growth, increasing energy demand and depleting fossil fuel resei-ves put a pressure on conventional methods of electricity generation. Hydropower is an alternative energy source that is known to have a large capacity potential. However, previous estimations of the potential capacity have been inconsistent and incomplete. In this study...

The economic importance of the Dutch rivers is very high as they are heavily used for inland waterway transport between the Netherlands and their neighbouring countries. A minimum depth must be guaranteed to keep the rivers navigable but also to ensure that the ships can carry maximum cargo. An attractive system for obtaining information about...

This contribution presents sediment classification results derived from different sources of data collected at the Dordtse Kil river, the Netherlands. The first source is a multi-beam echo-sounder (MBES). The second source is measurements taken with a gamma-ray scintillation detector, i.e., the Multi-Element Detection System for Underwater...

A widespread use of converted waves for shallow marine applications is hampered by spatial aliasing and field efficiency. Their short wavelengths require dense spatial sampling which often needs to be achieved by receivers deployed on the seabed. We adopted a new methodology where the dense spatial sampling is achieved in the common-receiver...

Shallow lateral shear layers forming between flows with different velocities, though essential for mixing processes in natural streams, have been examined only in laboratory settings using smooth, fixed?bed channels. This paper reports the results of an experimental study of a shear layer in a straight reach of a natural river where the layer,...

A method has recently been developed that employs multi-beam echo-sounder backscatter data to both obtain the number of sediment classes and discriminate between them by applying the Bayes decision rule to multiple hypotheses [ Simons and Snellen, Appl. Acoust. 70, 1258–1268 (2009) ]. In deep water, the number of scatter pixels within the beam...

We present a method for accurately estimating the bathymetry from multi-beam echo-sounder (MBES) travel-time measurements in environments with large variations in the water column sound speeds (both temporally and spatially). In this type of environments the water column sound speeds at the time of the MBES transmission are often not known,...

Studies in stratigraphy are often driven by the predicted climate change and possible gains for the oil and gas industry. Because, at present predictions of the development of future deltaic architecture are insufficient. This thesis addresses the problem of qualitative and quantitative understanding of sedimentary systems in two stages. In the...

The development of large coherent structures in a shallow mixing layer is analyzed. The results are validated with experimental data obtained from particle tracking velocimetry. The mean flow field is modeled using the self-similarity of the velocity profiles. The characteristic features of the down-stream development of a shallow mixing layer...

Groynes are structures constructed at an angle to the flow in order to deflect the flowing water away from critical zones. They are made of stone, gravel, rock, earth, or piles, beginning at the riverbank with a root and ending at the regulation line with a head. They serve to maintain a desirable channel for the purpose of flood control,...

In this report, some classical and new simplifications in mathematical and numerical models for river morphology are compared for conditions representing rivers in mountainous areas (high values of Froude numbers and relatively large values of sediment transport rates). Options for simplification are summarized based on time scale of hydrographs...

Kranenburg, C. (author)
A derivation is presented of a general cross-section averaged model of longitudinal dispersion, which is based on the notion of the advection of tracer particles. Particle displacement length and particle travel time are conceived as stochastic variables, and a joint probability density function is introduced to arrive at an integral advection...

This report focusses on discontinuous behaviour of hydraulics and morphology in rivers. The varying widths, slopes and bed levels that can be observed in mountain rivers can induce rapid, or discontinuous changes at a short lengthscale. When present, these discontinuities have a major impact on changes in water and bed levels during floods. In...

The ability of describing and predicting hydraulic and morphological phenomena in mountain rivers is limited, partially due to the limits of deterministic approaches where stochastic effects in sediment supply and water inflow are extremely significant, and partially due to the very specific conditions that can be observed in mountain rivers,...

In the one-dimensional 'Rhine Alarm Model' differences between the actual travel time of a pollution cloud, originating from an instantaneous release of an accidental spill, and the travel time, based on the flow velocity is represented by a lag coefficient. In the model this lag coefficient is defined by the relative difference between these...

Present knowledge on fluvial processes in mountain rivers should be expanded to enable the development of projects dealing with mountain rivers or mountain-river catchment areas. This study reviews research on hydraulic and morphological features of mountain rivers. A major characteristic of mountain rivers is the variability of the hydraulic...
