In the south portion of the Dutch coast is located the Sand Engine, a 21.5 million m3 experimental mega-nourishment that was built in 2011. This intervention created a discontinuity in the previous straight sandy coastline, altering the local hydrodynamics in a region that is influenced by the Rhine River ROFI. Estimates of the centrifugal acceleration directly after construction of the Sand Engine showed that its curved shape impacted the cross-shore flow, suggesting that the Sand Engine might have played a role in controlling the cross-shore exchange currents during the first three years after the completion of the nourishment. Presently, the curvature effects are minute owned to the morphodynamic evolution of the Sand Engine. Observations document the development of strong baroclinic-induced cross-shore exchange currents dictated by the intrusion of the river plume fronts as well as the classic tidal straining which are found to extend further into the nearshore (from 12 to 6 m depth), otherwise believed to be a mixed zone.

In the inner shelf, shoaling waves are as effective in mobilizing sediment as the other co-existing flows. The influence of stratification on the hydrodynamics is translated into near-bed shear velocity in the layer immediately above the sea floor. The tide-induced bed shear stress is able to periodically agitate the bed near the peaks of flood and ebb cycles mostly during spring tides. Results from observations suggested that, under stratified conditions, relatively high values of bed shear stress are sustained for a prolonged period of time. The results also revealed that the non-tidal flow, such as the wind-induced flow, plays a role in controlling the bed mobility. However, wave-induced bed shear stress in general does not set sediment in motion during fair weather conditions and thus the stirring role of the waves is mostly important during storms.

The co-exiting near-bed flows in the inner shelf are responsible for moulding the seafloor so that the resulting types of bedforms can reveal important information on the hydrodynamic forcings that dictate the sediment mobility. Observations showed that 56% of the ripples in the Dutch inner shelf are classified as current ripples. Wave ripples occur only during storm conditions, comprising 3%. The frequency of occurrence of transitional bed types composes 23% and poorly developed ripples is found to develop mostly during neap tides making up 15% of the observed bed types. The feedback of the different types of bedforms on the overlying boundary layer plays a fundamental role in the dynamics of the sediment load.

The morphological response of the bed to the stratified and non-stratified tidal flow leads to differentiations of the ripple migration as well as the sediment transport modes (bedload and suspended load). The bedforms at the measurement site are strongly controlled by tides so that their behavior exhibits not only a spring-neap signature, but also a distinct semi-diurnal fluctuation. Under the influence of the Rhine ROFI, the bedform mean dimensions (ripple height and wavelength) are reduced, indicating that their development is affected by the stratified tidal flow. In the absence of (ambient) stratification, the tidal current ripples are more developed, attaining relatively larger dimensions. The net alongshore bedload transport is south-directed, whereas the net alongshore suspended load is north-directed regardless of stratification. Moreover, the net alongshore bedload transport is higher during stratified conditions but the net alongshore suspended transport is smaller. Regarding the cross-shore sediment transport, the findings show that ambient stratification promotes onshore-directed bed- and suspended load net transport. The gross suspended transport rates are 10 times greater than the gross bedload transport rates.","stratification; bedforms; sediment transport","en","doctoral thesis","","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:59f3342f-f53b-4e27-95d9-9851da65e6c9","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:59f3342f-f53b-4e27-95d9-9851da65e6c9","Ill posedness in modelling two-dimensional morphodynamic problems: Effects of bed slope and secondary flow","Chavarrias Borras, V.

Well posedness guarantees the existence of a unique solution continuously depending on the problem data. When a model becomes ill posed, infinitesimal perturbations to a solution grow infinitely fast. Apart from the fact that this behaviour cannot represent a physical process, numerical simulations of an ill-posed model continue to change as the grid is refined. For this reason, ill-posed models cannot be used as predictive tools. One source of ill posedness is due to the simplified description of the processes related to vertical mixing of sediment. The current analysis reveals the existence of two additional mechanisms that lead to model ill posedness: secondary flow due to the flow curvature and the effect of gravity on the sediment transport direction. When parametrising secondary flow, accounting for diffusion in the transport of secondary flow intensity is a requirement for obtaining a well-posed model. When considering the theoretical amount of diffusion, the model predicts instability of perturbations that are incompatible with the shallow water assumption. The effect of gravity on the sediment transport direction is a necessary mechanism to yield a well-posed model, but not all closure relations to account for this mechanism are valid under mixed-size sediment conditions. Numerical simulations of idealised situations confirm the results of the stability analysis and highlight the consequences of ill posedness.","nonlinear instability; river dynamics; sediment transport","en","journal article","","","","","","Accepted Author Manuscript","","2019-10-11","","","","","","" "uuid:b51ea764-4e48-4247-b24a-37e05b7fa7d6","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:b51ea764-4e48-4247-b24a-37e05b7fa7d6","Modeling the Transition to High Sediment Concentrations as a Response to Channel Deepening in the Ems River Estuary","Dijkstra, Y.M.

multi-fraction sediment transport due to subtidal and subaerial processes simultaneously. The Windsurf framework couples separate model cores for subtidal morphodynamics related to waves and currents and storms and aeolian

sediment transport. The Windsurf framework bridges three gaps in our ability to model long-term coastal morphodynamics: differences in time scales, land/water boundary and differences in meshes.

The Windsurf framework is applied to the Sand Motor mega-nourishment. The Sand Motor is virtually permanentlyexposed to tides, waves and wind and is consequently highly dynamic. In order to understand the complex

morphological behavior of the Sand Motor, it is vital to take both subtidal and subaerial processes into account. The ultimate aim of this study is to identify governing processes in aeolian sediment transport estimates in coastal environments and improve the accuracy of long-term coastal morphodynamic modeling.

At the Sand Motor beach armoring occurs on the dry beach. In contrast to the dry beach, no armor layer can be established in the intertidal zone due to periodic flooding. Consequently, during low tide non-armored intertidal beaches are susceptible for wind erosion and, although moist, may provide a larger aeolian sediment supply than the vast dry beach areas. Hence, subtidal processes significantly influence the subaerial morphology and both need to be accounted for to understand the long-term aeolian morphodynamic behavior of the Sand Motor.","hydrodynamics; sediment transport; morphodynamics; dunes and ecomorphology; numerical modelling; coasts and climate","en","conference paper","","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:c939962d-1cef-4701-9840-ae005595ac47","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:c939962d-1cef-4701-9840-ae005595ac47","Beach growth driven by intertidal sandbar welding","Cohn, Nicholas (Oregon State University); Ruggiero, P (Oregon State University); de Vries, S.

(promotor); Wang, Z.B. (promotor)","2016","The Jiangsu coast is located in eastern China bordering the South Yellow Sea. It is strongly affected by the semi-diurnal tides. Both the tidal range and the tidal current vary greatly in space due to local tidal wave systems and morphologies. The radial tidal current pattern identified at the central coast is suggested to play a primary role in the evolution of a large-scale radial-shape sand ridge system. Another feature of the Jiangsu coast is the diversity of the bottom sediments with pronounced silt content. Inspired by the characteristics of both the hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics throughout the Jiangsu coast, this thesis focuses on advancing our understanding of the coastal tidal dynamics and the resulting sediment transport. Regarding the radial tidal current pattern at the central Jiangsu coast, there have been plenty of studies exploring relevant formation mechanisms. A generally accepted inference is that the radial tidal current pattern is a consequence of the interaction between the northern rotating tidal wave system and the southern progressive tidal wave. In this study, we examine the emergence of the radial tidal current in a schematized semi-enclosed tidal basin by introducing the tidal Current Amphidromic Point (CAP) and the tidal current inclination angles. After comprehensive numerical experiments, we find that the overall basin scale and the cross-basin phase difference play roles in the emergence of the radial tidal current. The radial tidal current only has an opportunity to emerge in a basin where the basin length (L) is larger than width (B) (i.e. L/B>1), a lateral depth difference exists or the offshore incoming tidal wave has an oblique angle. The Yellow Sea is featured by these aforementioned prerequisites favouring the emergence of the radial tidal current. Furthermore, we discover that the radial tidal current is related to the cross-basin CAP distribution pattern. When the radial tidal current emerges, the focal point is the CAP related to the velocity vectors rotating anti-cyclonically in the Northern Hemisphere. The CAP distribution deserves more attention for the identification of the radial tidal current pattern. To understand the sediment dynamics in a silt-enriched environment in more detail, we have carried out a series of flume experiments under various wave and current conditions with field-collected silt-sand mixtures. According to the experiments, we find that the silt fraction has different features originating from both the sand fraction and the clay fraction. A high concentration layer is observed near the bottom together with ripples under pure wave conditions. Sediment concentrations inside the high concentration layer are quasi-stationary with the bulk Richardson number approaching a constant value. The thickness of the high concentration layer can be scaled with approximately two times the damped wave boundary layer thickness. Thus, the wave motion induced turbulence is considered to be the main reason generating the high concentration layer. Moreover, suspensions inside the high concentration layer have a certain amount of sand content, which is different from the fluid mud in the cohesive muddy bed. For the vertical concentration profile, the silt fraction is also distributed differently from the sand fraction, since the silt concentration decreases logarithmically within high concentration layer, while it is homogeneously distributed outside the high concentration layer. Considering the specific features of the silt fraction, we recalibrated the formulations of van Rijn (2007a, b) based on our experiments and further developed a multi-fraction sediment transport model to predict the vertical concentration profile for silt and sand classes, and then tested the existing sediment formulations. The results show a promising agreement with the measurements, for both wave-only and wave-with-current conditions. Finally, the Jiangsu Regional Model is set up utilizing the aforementioned findings on tides and sediments. The Jiangsu Regional Model is used to examine whether our existing knowledge can be integrated for a relatively long-term (i.e. time scale of years) predictions on the sediment transport and the morphological changes of the Jiangsu coast. To this end, we first reasonably construct the bed composition throughout the model domain. Subsequently, the model is calibrated and validated against two independent measurements on water level, flow velocity and the sediment concentration. The results indicate that the present model can produce good results. The simulated annual-averaged SSCs depict a high value in the coastal region between the Old Yellow River Delta and the northern Radial Sand Ridge Field. The simulated morphological changes show a spatially distributed alternating-erosion-sedimentation pattern in the Old Yellow River Delta rather than pure erosion. Over the Radial Sand Ridge Field, the ridges are continuously growing and the adjacent tidal channels are deepening. The simulated annual-averaged tide-induced sediment budget shows that the northern (i.e. the Old Yellow River Delta) and southern (i.e. the southern Radial Sand Ridge Field) Jiangsu coast are under erosion, while the central coast (i.e. the northern and central Radial Sand Ridge Field) is still in progradation. Furthermore, the simulated sediment bed in the Old Yellow River Delta shows a gradually coarsening trend while an overall fining trend is pronounced in the northern Radial Sand Ridge Field. All these long-term results are in good agreement with observation-based estimations. The present modelling framework indeed has the ability for simulating sediment transport and morphological changes over a relatively long time span (i.e. time scale of years). This thesis addresses series of findings on the radial tidal current pattern, characteristics of the silt-dominated sediments as well as the sediment transport and morphological changes along the Jiangsu coast. The proposed modelling approaches can serve as a basis and provide information on large-scale hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics for the management and planning of the Jiangsu coast. Future studies may be focused on (1) detailed investigation on the influencing factors on the emergence of the radial tidal current by the CAP system distribution; (2) the physics of the layered-bed system (i.e. the hard layer under ripples) for silt dominated mixtures; (3) improving the computational efficiency of the Jiangsu Regional Model for longer time scale (i.e. tens of years).","tides; tidal wave system; tidal current system; silt dynamics; sediment transport; Jiangsu coast","en","doctoral thesis","","","","","","","","2016-03-21","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:d9e3f248-06fb-48d6-a767-8589ec4b6091","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:d9e3f248-06fb-48d6-a767-8589ec4b6091","Development and Extension of An Aggregated Scale Model: Part 1 – Background to ASMITA","Townend, I (University of Southampton); Wang, Zhengbing (TU Delft Coastal Engineering); Stive, M.J.F.

Such aggregated or lumped models tend not to represent the processes in detail but rather capture the behaviour at the scale of interest. One such model developed using the concept of an equilibrium concentration is the Aggregated Scale Morphological Interaction between Tidal basin and Adjacent coast (ASMITA). In this paper we provide some new insights into the concepts of equilibrium, and horizontal and vertical exchange that are key components of this modelling approach. In a companion paper, we summarise a range of developments that have been undertaken to extend the original model concept, to illustrate the flexibility and power of the conceptual framework. However, adding detail progressively moves the model in the direction of the more detailed process-based models and we give some consideration to the boundary between the two. Highlights

• The concept of aggregating model scales is explored and the basis of the ASMITA model is outlined in detail;

• The relationship between dispersion as used in fast-scale process-based models and the horizontal exchange used in aggregated models is explored;

• The basis for formulating suitable equilibrium relationships is explained; • Alternative ways to include advection and dispersion are examined.

200 kg/m3) and primarily Newtonian, turbulent flows (van Maren et al., 2009a). This reach is characterized by two special, and possibly unique, hydrodynamic and sediment transport phenomena that are associated with hyperconcentrated flow: a downstream increasing peak discharge (at a rate far exceeding the contribution from tributaries) during hyperconcentrated floods, and a downstream decreasing runoff due to water diversions. Assuming spatially continuous diversions along a constant-width channel, previous studies suggest a longitudinally convex bed at the equilibrium state. However, the validity of a convex bed profile, for discrete diversions in natural channels of longitudinally varying width, remains to be justified. Also, such equilibrium analysis does not reveal the morphological time scale (MTS) associated with water diversions. Moreover, though many explanations have previously been proposed for the peak discharge increase, they have focused on only one possible mechanism (e.g., bed roughness change, bed erosion, floodplain influences) and no consensus has been achieved. The underlying physics still remain largely unknown. Research efforts are therefore needed to further investigate these two issues, which comprise the main work of the present PhD research and this thesis. For the study of the downstream peak discharge increase phenomenon, mathematical modelling is the main research method, together with the field data analysis. High-resolution morphodynamic modelling of complex fluvial processes, such as in a hyperconcentrated flood, has so far been limited by model accuracy or computational efficiency. In order to account for the strong interactions during the hyperconcentrated flood and to acquire accurate and efficient solutions in the field scale, a fully coupled morphodynamic model has first been developed using the finite volume method for structured grids. Physically, this model is based on the concept of non-capacity sediment transport, and it incorporates the effects of sediment density and bed deformation on the flow (both in mass and momentum), as well as the influences of turbulence and sediment diffusions. Numerically, this model combines the high accuracy of high-order upwind schemes and the efficiency of centered schemes by the extension of a recent upwind-biased centered (UFORCE) scheme (Stecca et al., 2010) originally developed for clear flow and scalar transport over a fixed bed, to sediment-laden flows over an erodible bed. For stability, a two-stage splitting approach together with a second order Runge-Kutta method is used for the source terms. Moreover, the full set of governing equations is solved at one time to obtain synchronous solutions in mathematics. The model is verified in a number of dam-break tests, covering a wide range of complex (sediment-laden) flows. It is demonstrated to accurately simulate shock waves and reflection waves, as well as rapid bed deformations at high sediment transport rates. Using this model, the relative role of bed roughness change and bed erosion on the downstream peak discharge increase is then investigated in schematized 1-D channels for two hyperconcentrated floods. The results reveal that although erosion effects may contribute to the downstream discharge increase (especially in case of extreme erosion), for most cases the increase is mainly due to a reduction in bed roughness during peak discharge conditions. Additionally, based on the concept of channel storage reduction, the effects of decreasing bed roughness and (very strong) bed erosion can be integrated in the explanation of the peak discharge increase. Later, this model is also applied to reveal the floodplain influences on the peak discharge increase in schematized 2-D channel-floodplain reaches. The results indicate that the cross-sectional changes of channel erosion and floodplain deposition during hyperconcentrated floods are often limited and that it is difficult to drive a peak discharge increase in the downstream direction. For the study of the water diversion impact, a general theoretical framework is proposed to predict the equilibrium state of the fluvial system, which is applicable to both continuous and discrete water diversions in a longitudinally width-varying channel. Numerical experiments by the SOBEK-RE software (version 2.52.005, Delft Hydraulics, 2005) complement the MTS studies for water diversions. The effects of diversion intensity, diversion placement (discrete and continuous) and diversion schemes (pure water and water-sediment mixture) are also systematically studied. The present work confirms the previous findings that water diversions lead to a decrease of the equilibrium depth with respect to natural conditions and a convex bed in a constant-width channel. Moreover, it reveals that in a widening channel a convex bed also develops under conditions of water diversions, while convex, concave or quasi-linear beds may occur in a narrowing channel. Non-monotonic beds may develop in a strongly narrowing channel, depending on the diversion schemes. On a large spatial scale, diversion placement is less important for the equilibrium development. The MTS for water diversions and natural development are very similar and large, indicating considerable influences of water diversions on river morphology. The present thesis advances our understanding of the long-term impact of water diversions on the evolution of a river.","mathematical modelling; morphology; hyperconcentrated flow; sediment transport; water diversions; dam break","en","doctoral thesis","VSSD","","","","","","","","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:9a701423-8559-4a44-be5d-370d292b0df3","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:9a701423-8559-4a44-be5d-370d292b0df3","Physics of Blown Sand and Coastal Dunes","De Vries, S.","Stive, M.J.F.

The sediment is considered as uniform rigid spherical particles. This is usually a valid assumption for sand-bed rivers where underwater dune formation is most prominent. Under certain shear stress conditions, these particles are picked up from the bed due to an imbalance of gravity and flow forces. They either roll and slide on the bed in a sheet of sediment or separate from the bed and get suspended in the flow. Sooner or later, the suspended particles settle on the bed again. Each of these steps is modeled separately, yielding a physics-based process model for sediment transport, suitable for the simulation of bed morphodynamics. The sediment model is validated with theoretical findings such as the Rouse profile as well as with empirical relations of sediment bed load and suspended load transport.

Dunes have considerable effects on sediment transport and flow resistance. When growing during a flood, the dunes create more resistance and flood levels may rise significantly. Accurate prediction of dune properties therefore contributes to effective flood risk management. Recently, significant progress has been made in understanding bedform dynamics, thanks to significant advances in monitoring flow and bedform morphology in laboratory and field, as well as in their numerical modelling. Nowadays, numerical modelling captures not only the characteristics of the mean flow field, but also those of turbulence, including coherent flow structures above non-flat beds. These advances enable radical progress in modelling and understanding the behaviour of alluvial bedforms. Sediment motion can nowadays be measured and simulated in detail. The effect of turbulent flow on sediment particles can be understood in a more physics-based way. Sediment transport can be linked to bed topography and the bed deformations can be studied by considering the motion of sediment particles in the flow. This gives insight into the evolution and migration of ripples and dunes under turbulent flow and the effects they have on floods. Generation and migration of dunes are determined by sediment transport, which in its turn is influenced by the turbulence structures above and behind the dunes. This kind of physical phenomena involves a wide range of time scales. Often, the measurements cannot capture the smallest time scales, whence many experimental studies consider only statistical properties under homogenous steady-state conditions. Consequently, models based on such measurements can only be empirical. They usually fall short in computing the physical nature of the phenomena in unsteady flows. Therefore, a rigorous physics-based numerical model is needed. This study concentrates on detailed simulations of flow, sediment transport and bedform morphodynamics. Based on these simulations the governing physics behind these phenomena are studied. This is achieved by developing a detailed three-dimensional numerical model for hydrodynamics, sediment transport and morphodynamics. The model simulates the time- dependent water flow by Large Eddy Simulation (LES) on a locally refined Cartesian grid. The sediment is considered as rigid spherical particles moving in the water under gravity and flow-induced forces. The change of bed (morphodynamics) is the net result of pick-up and deposition of sediment on each portion of the bed. The model is validated against theoretical and experimental results of previous studies published in the literature. The resulting model is complex and time-consuming, especially in time-varying flow conditions, such as a flood wave. Therefore, the insights and data obtained with it were used to develop parametric models that can be used operationally at larger spatial and temporal scales. In a number of three-dimensional simulations over two-dimensional bedforms the form drag resulting from the bedforms is compared with existing theoretical, empirical and semi-empirical formulae. It is found that the numerical results agree very well with these formulae. Bedforms in nature, however, are usually three-dimensional. When comparing simulated flows over three-dimensional dunes and with the two-dimensional case, the form drag on three-dimensional dunes turns out to be very different. Based on this finding, the form drag is parameterized for two- and three-dimensional dunes. Furthermore, the generation and migration of dunes under steady flow conditions is studied, and the results are compared with former experimental studies. This comparison shows a very good agreement between the numerical and experimental findings. Dune evolution during floods often shows a hysteresis, with different dune heights at the same discharge during the rising and falling stage of the flood wave. As flow resistance in the main channel of a river is mainly controlled by dune dimensions, the hysteresis in dune height is reflected in the time-evolution of the flow resistance during floods, thus yielding a dynamic roughness. Limited knowledge on this phenomenon, combined with computational limitations, usually keep dynamic roughness behaviour from being included in flood simulation models. To understand the physics behind this hysteresis effect, channels with different discharges and different grain sizes are simulated. It is shown that the hysteresis in the form drag is a function of both variables. Extension of the simulations to the upper flat bed regime shows that the model captures most of the physical phenomena in this regime and yields a flat bed as observed in experiments and in the field.","river morphodynamics; sediment transport; hysteresis; hydrograph; large Eddy simulation; turbulent flow; multigrid; unstructured Cartesian grid; immersed boundaris","en","doctoral thesis","Ipskamp Drukkers B.V.","","","","","","","","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:f112b25d-bfc6-4771-8201-2ad5860cf373","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:f112b25d-bfc6-4771-8201-2ad5860cf373","Macrophytes in estuarine gradients: Flow through flexible vegetation","Dijkstra, J.T.","Stive, M.J.F. (promotor); Uijttewaal, W.S.J. (promotor)","2012","Aquatic plants –or macrophytes- are an important part of coastal, estuarine and freshwater ecosystems worldwide, both from an ecological and an engineering viewpoint. Their meadows provide a wide range of ecosystem services: forming a physical protection of the shoreline, enhancing water quality and harbouring many other organisms. Unfortunately, these vegetations such as salt marshes, seagrasses or mangroves have been on the decline as a result of anthropogenic pressure and climate change, despite costly conservation and restoration efforts. The low success rate of these efforts might partially be due to a lack of understanding of the complex bio-physical interactions between plant properties, plant growth, hydro- and morphodynamics and water quality. The capability of plants to alter their abiotic environment via these interactions is referred to as ‘ecosystem engineering’. Many experimental studies, both in the field and in laboratory flumes, have been performed to unravel these interactions. Since such experiments are always hampered by practical limitations such as flume dimensions, available time, or uncontrolled conditions, this knowledge cannot always be generically applied. Therefore, the primary objective of this study is to develop a generically applicable model for feedbacks between flexible macrophytes and their physical environment. To warrant this general applicability under the various circumstances occurring in estuaries, the model development follows a process based approach; a data-orientated approach is merely applicable to known conditions. Modelling starts out on the scale of one plant to finish at the scale of a meadow. The focus is on seagrass, as seagrasses are well studied, highly flexible, have a relatively simple shape and are among the most productive as well as threatened ecosystems. The first step was to create the numerical model called ‘Dynveg’, by combining a novel dynamic plant bending model based on a Lagrangian force balance to an existing 1DV k-? turbulence model (Chapter 2). The plant bending model is based on measurable biomechanical properties of plants: length, width, thickness, volumetric density and the elasticity modulus. Because very flexible plants can assume a position almost parallel to the flow direction, friction too needed to be incorporated rather than pressure drag alone. Flume measurements on strips of eelgrass-like proportions provided the actual values for drag- and friction coefficients, as well as validation data for predicted strip positions and forces. The effect of multiple plants on hydrodynamics was incorporated by assuming that all plants in a meadow do the same, and by defining two turbulence length scales: One for internally generated turbulence, related to the wakes behind individual stems, and one for larger eddies created in the shear layer above, penetrating the canopy depending on the space between the stems. Dynveg compared favourably with the measurements of hydrodynamic characteristics in mimicked eelgrass by Nepf & Vivoni [2000]. Next, Dynveg was combined with the large-scale hydro- and morphodynamic model Delft3D to simulate two-dimensional spatial processes in and around meadows of flexible macrophytes (Chapter 3). The leading principle for this integration is the conditional similarity between flow characteristics in flexible vegetation and those in rigid vegetation: If the rigid vegetation has i) the same height as the deflected vegetation, ii) its plant volume redistributed over the vertical accordingly and iii) a drag coefficient representative of the streamlined shape, the flow is practically analogous for a range of plant properties and hydrodynamic conditions. This modelling method was validated by comparing model results with flume experiments on two seagrass species, showing good agreement for canopy height, flow velocity profile and flow adaptation length. A field measurement campaign in a French macrotidal bay bordered by an eelgrass meadow provided validation data for application to real meadows (Chapter 5). Along with a detailed bathymetry survey by jetski, time-series of flow velocity and sediment dynamics inside a meadow and over a bare adjacent area were measured over two tidal periods. The applied sediment transport formula [van Rijn, 1993] deals with vegetation effects on sediment pick-up and transport via the effects of plants on hydrodynamics. Vegetation-specific interactions such as particle trapping by blades or flow intensification directly around shoots were not taken into account. Nevertheless, the three-dimensional numerical model was able to reproduce the main features of the observations, indicating that the processes of vegetation bending in non-stationary flow and sediment transport through vegetated areas are incorporated correctly. Thus, the objective of making a model for feedbacks between flexible macrophytes and their physical environment has been met. The model can be applied as a tool in conservation and restoration studies or in long-term biogeomorphological feedback studies. Recommended extensions are the incorporation of plant-wave interactions, more intricate plant morphologies and a vegetation-specific transport formula. The second objective of this thesis was to use the developed model(s) as a tool to learn more about biophysical interactions under different conditions. In Chapter 4, Dynveg and the two-dimensional model were used to assess the ecosystem engineering capacities of three plant species that partly co-occur in temperate intertidal areas: the stiff Spartina anglica, the short flexible seagrass Zostera noltii and the tall flexible seagrass Zostera marina. The flow velocity inside the canopy, the canopy flux and the bed shear stress were used as proxies for the species’ ability to respectively absorb hydrodynamic energy, the supply of nutrients or sediment and the ability to prevent erosion. This analysis showed that a species’ eco-engineering capacities depend on its spatial density, its size, its structural rigidity and its buoyancy, but also on environmental conditions. Therefore, biomass, leaf area index or other lumped parameters that neglect structural properties are no good generic indicators of ecosystem engineering capacities. Rigid plants have more potential to trap sediment due to a higher canopy flux than flexible plants. This canopy flux showed to be inversely related to spatial density along the entire natural range. For flexible plants, the canopy flux is only related to density in relatively sparse meadows; in denser meadows the canopy flux is constant with increasing density. Flexible plants are better at preventing erosion because they are more efficient in reducing bed shear stresses than rigid plants. For very thin plants, buoyancy is the most important determinant of position in given flow conditions. For intermediate flexible plants, the structural rigidity is the most influential parameter, whereas for (nearly) rigid plants, the spatial density is dominant. In Chapter 6, the three-dimensional model of the macrotidal bay was used to study the effects of different types of macrophytes on (residual) sediment transport and light availability. The effects of the real, relatively sparse eelgrass meadow were compared to those of a meadow with rigid plants of the same spatial density, with a dense eelgrass meadow, and with a bare bed. Though the differences between these four vegetation scenarios were small –only a few percent- the consequences on long timescales can be considerable. In deep water, sparse flexible vegetation kept more sediment inside the bay than rigid or denser plants. When vegetation only occupies a small part of the water column, plants prevent erosion rather than promote deposition and they have more effect on bed-load transport than on the transport of suspended sediment. Stiff and denser plants affect the bed-load more than sparse flexible vegetation, thereby blocking the transport from outside to inside. The presence of dense or stiff macrophytes increased the light availability at the bed over a tidal cycle up to 7% with respect to a bare bed. The increase of light availability was less pronounced for the relatively open eelgrass meadow: up to 3%. Overall, this study has resulted in a widely applicable model for the interactions between flexible aquatic plants, flow and sediment transport and in more insight in some of these interactions. Other researchers are encouraged to use this tool complementary to fieldwork and laboratory experiments, and to extend it with other functionalities, e.g. for wave attenuation or vegetation development.","macrophyte; flexible vegetation; estuary; hydrodynamics; turbulence; ecology; sediment transport; light climate; seagrass","en","doctoral thesis","","","","","","","","2012-03-06","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:3fa8d72d-c3aa-4786-a321-41433ad1df78","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:3fa8d72d-c3aa-4786-a321-41433ad1df78","Transport of suspended particles in turbulent open channel flows","Breugem, W.A.","Uijttewaal, W.S.J.

Case study Biesbosch","Jose Alonso, J.J.","","2010","Different measures will be executed in the framework PKB “Room for the River” in order to lower the water levels in the river area during normative high discharges. The plan Ontpoldering Noordwaard is one of them and has as aim to inundate parts of the Noordwaard during high discharges. Water coming from the Nieuwe Merwede as result of high water levels will flow into the Noordwaard and leave the area through the south part. As consequence the creeks in the Brabantse Biesbosch will process more water and flow velocities will increase. This may result in higher sediment transport en possible erosion of the gullies. Dankers et al. (2008) studied the flow velocities in the Brabantse Biesbosch under different discharge conditions and the possible effects of the velocities on erosion and transport of contaminated bed material. This study was a combination of computer model simulations and expert judgment. The model simulations were obtained with the combination of boundary conditions for discharges with a return period of once in 100 year for the Rhine and Meuse and a water level of the sea of 1 m above normal. In this case flow velocities higher than 1 m/s and shear stresses higher than 1 N/m2 were found at different locations of the Brabantse Biesbosch. This means that a transition may occur from a situation without spreading of contaminated bed material towards a situation where spreading can occur. By comparing the quality of the top layer of the areas with risk of erosion according to De Straat (2004) with the intervention values for river beds (“Circulaire Sanering Waterbodems 2008”) and the MACsediment (Maximum Allowed Concentration in the Sediment), Dankers et al. (2008) found that different areas in the Brabantse Biesbosch may exceed the intervention values and/or the MAC for sediments. The areas Gat van de Visschen, Gat van Den Kleine Hil and Gat van de Noorderklip present concentrations of metals in the top layer that are higher than the intervention values and the MAC. In the areas Gat van Van Kampen, Gat van de Binnennieuwensteek and Spijkerboor a small violation of the MACsediment was observed. This study concluded that there are unacceptable risks of spreading of contaminated mud to the surface water.","heavy metal; pollution; sediment transport; rhine; meuse; 2D model; Delft3D; water quality and calamities; case study; Biesbosch; river; room for the river; ontpoldering Noordwaard; high water levels; serosion; computer model simulations; Delft Cluster; CT04.20; waterkwaliteit; CT04.24.11; risicomanagement van calamiteiten; waterquality","en","report","Delft Cluster","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:76b7747c-5b46-49a3-8cb1-1881f388718a","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:76b7747c-5b46-49a3-8cb1-1881f388718a","Effect of bottom stress formulation on modelled flow and turbidity maxima in cross-sections of tide-dominated estuaries","Schramkowski, G.P.; De Swart, H.E.; Schuttelaars, H.M.","","2009","A three-dimensional numerical model with a prognostic salinity field is used to investigate the effect of a partial slip bottom boundary condition on lateral flow and sediment distribution in a transect of a tidally dominated channel. The transect has a symmetrical Gaussian cross-channel bottom profile. For a deep, well-mixed, tidally dominated channel, partial slip decreases the relative importance of Coriolis deflection on the generation of cross-channel flow patterns. This has profound implications for the lateral distribution of residual salinity that drives the cross-channel residual circulation pattern. Transverse sediment transport, however, is always found to be governed by a balance between advection of residual sediment concentration by residual lateral flow on the one hand and cross-channel diffusion on the other hand. Hence, the changes in the cross-channel distribution of residual salinity modify the lateral sediment distribution. For no slip, a single turbidity maximum occurs. In contrast, partial slip gives a gradual transition to a symmetrical density distribution with a turbidity maximum near each bank. For a more shallow, partially mixed tidal channel that represents the James River, a single turbidity maximum at the left bank is found irrespective of the near-bed slip condition. In this case, semi-diurnal contributions to sediment distribution and lateral flow play an important role in cross-channel sediment transport. As vertical viscosity and diffusivity are increased, a second maximum at the right bank again exists for partial slip.","turbidity; estuary; sediment transport; morphodynamic equilibrium","en","journal article","Springer","","","","","","","","Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science","Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics","","","","" "uuid:62e2183b-3dcc-489c-8020-56a250febe77","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:62e2183b-3dcc-489c-8020-56a250febe77","Modeling equilibrium bed profiles of short tidal embayments: On the effect of the vertical distribution of suspended sediment and the influence of the boundary conditions","Ter Brake, M.C.; Schuttelaars, H.M.","","2009","In many tidal embayments, bottom patterns, such as the channel-shoal systems of the Wadden Sea, are observed. To gain understanding of the mechanisms that result in these bottom patterns, an idealized model is developed and analyzed for short tidal embayments. In this model, the water motion is described by the depth- and width-averaged shallow water equations and forced by a prescribed sea surface elevation at the entrance of the embayment. The bed evolves due to the divergence and convergence of suspended sediment fluxes. To model this suspended-load sediment transport, the three-dimensional advection–diffusion equation is integrated over depth and averaged over the width. One of the sediment fluxes in the resulting one-dimensional advection–diffusion equation is proportional to the gradient of the local water depth. In most models, this topographically induced flux is not present. Using standard continuation techniques, morphodynamic equilibria are obtained for different parameter values and forcing conditions. The bathymetry of the resulting equilibrium bed profiles and their dependency on parameters, such as the phase difference between the externally prescribed M2 and M4 tide and the sediment fall velocity, are explained physically With this model, it is then shown that for embayments that are dominated by a net import of sediment, morphodynamic equilibria only exist up to a maximum embayment length. Furthermore, the sensitivity of the model to different morphological boundary conditions at the entrance of the embayment is investigated and it is demonstrated how this strongly influences the shape and number of possible equilibrium bottom profiles. This paper ends with a comparison between the developed model and field data for the Wadden Sea’s Ameland and Frisian inlets. When the model is forced with the observed M2 and M4 tidal constituents, morphodynamic equilibria can be found with embayment lengths similar to those observed in these inlets. However, this is only possible when the topographically induced suspended sediment flux is included. Without this flux, the maximum embayment length for which morphodynamic equilibria can be found is approximately a third of the observed length. The sensitivity of the model to the topographically induced sediment flux is discussed in detail.","tidal basin; estuary; idealized model; morphodynamic equilibrium; sediment transport; boundary condition","en","journal article","Springer","","","","","","","","Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science","Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics","","","","" "uuid:fcb49e4d-b0e0-45a4-9d67-be7ec4430ffd","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:fcb49e4d-b0e0-45a4-9d67-be7ec4430ffd","A Hybrid Approach to Combine Physically Based and Data-Driven Models in Simulating Sediment Transportation","Sewagudde, S.","","2008","The objective of this study is to develop a methodology for hybrid modelling of sedimentation in a coastal basin or large shallow lake where physically based and data driven approaches are combined.

The studies reviewed here were done off California, in the northern Gulf of Mexico, at Nova Scotia, on the Ebro delta, at Duck, New Jersey, southeastern Australia and New Zealand, and in the North sea off the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands. Each environment has its own specific forcings and processes, which emphasises the need for long-term synchronous field measurements of various parameters at the site of interest. In general, bedload transport is more important than suspended load transport except during severe storms or swell. Various types of ripples prevail, but in the heavy storms the (transition to) upper plane bed states do occur at water depths far beyond the depth of morphological closure of the surfzone. The number of studies is sufficient to identify a number of shortcomings of present knowledge: i. for the shoreface conditions, shear stress and hydraulic roughness models give widely varying results and have not been tested and calibrated a range of datasets; this leads to high uncertainties concerning the bed shear stress components for sediment transport; ii. there are many environments in which neither waves nor currents dominate but interactions between waves and currents are not well understood; iii. there is no concensus on definitions of bedforms and states, especially in conditions with both waves and currents; in addition the genesis of a number of bed states is not well understood; iv. coastal, near-bed density-driven currents derived from riverine fresh-water outflow can cause a net shoreward current with a potentially first-order effect on annual sediment transport, but this effect has not been quantified empirically; v. the exchange of sediment between surf zone, shoreface and shelf may be important for coastal sediment budgets on longer time scales (decades), but virtually nothing is known about the magnitude and the direction of the net exchange (for different grain sizes); vi. there are very few datasets with measurements of both bedload and suspended load transport and hydrodynamics at high near-bed resolutions, and none that allow the probabilistic integration to annual transport on the shoreface.","sediment transport; continental shelf; bedforms","en","report","Utrecht University","","","","","","","","","","","","Sandpit","" "uuid:cf3ef72f-b32a-406e-afbb-3702e84b50eb","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:cf3ef72f-b32a-406e-afbb-3702e84b50eb","Morphology of pits, channels and trenches - part II: Model verification of Delft3D with PUTMOR dataset","Rijn, L.C. van; Walstra, D.J.R.; Helvert, M.A.G. van","","2002","","kustmorfologie; coastal morphology; ecologie; ecology; sedimenttransport; sediment transport; morfodynamica; morphodynamics","en","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:2badb9c8-2eb4-4f09-b78e-451c65f2e5f5","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:2badb9c8-2eb4-4f09-b78e-451c65f2e5f5","Coastal erosion at Hai Hau beach in the Red River Delta, Vietnam","Häglund, M.; Svensson, P.","Larson, M. (contributor); Hanson, H. (contributor); Rijkswaterstaat","2002","Many coastal areas in Vietnam suffer from erosion. One of the worst affected areas is the Hai Hau beach, located in the Red River delta in northern Vietnam. Over the last hundred years, vast parts of the beach have eroded at an average rate of approximately 25 m per year. Important agricultural land has vanished into the sea and families have been forced to abandon their houses because of the erosion is not explained but suggested reasons are for example dam construction, weak dikes and unfavourable hydrodynamic conditions The wave climate, and thus the sediment transport, in northernVietnam is highly dependent on the two main wind directions from the northeast and the south, because of the winter and ) summer monsoon, respectively . Vietnam is also.subject to sporadic typhoons that cause great damage when they strike the coast, especially in combination with storm surges. Based on a 20-year long wind record from 1976 to 1995, obtained from two islands outside the coast of northern Vietnam, the longshore transport rate over these years was determined by a one dimensional numerical wave model. The model consists of three independent parts: offshore waves, nearshore waves and -longshore sediment transport. This model indicates a southward-directed transport along the Hai Hau beach. In addition, sea maps and satellite photos from the 20th century were compared in order to find out the historic shoreline development generally. The main protection method that is generally used in Vietnam, as well as in Hai Hau district, is sea dikes. These dikes consist of an earth core covered by a revetment layer of cobbles. Unfortunately, these dikes are not strong enough to withstand the impact of harsh waves for any longer periods. Historically, a line of sea dikes has been destroyed at least once every decade. A couple of hundred meters behind the front sea dike typically lies another dike, ready to meet the waves when the first one breaches. Consequently, this defence arrangement is often recognized as a double dike system, but also as a retreat strategy since the erosion problem is not solved, just slowed down. The major cause of erosion is likely not due to human activities (such as dam buildings,or river cut-offs), instead because of the natural properties of Hai Hau coastal area, seasonally bounded longshore currents in combination with weak sea dikes favour erosion.","coastal erosion; dike breach; Nam Dinh; sediment transport","en","report","University of Lund","","","","","","","","","","","","KWP-collection","" "uuid:a3f9bca3-f2f2-47ef-a013-d53bec735fc6","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:a3f9bca3-f2f2-47ef-a013-d53bec735fc6","Een 1D netwerk morfodynamisch model voor het Noordelijk Deltabekken: Opzet van het model","Wang, Z.B.","","2001","","Noordelijk Deltabekken; estuariene morfologie; estuarine morphology; sedimenttransport; sediment transport; netwerken; networks","nl","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:08911ef5-5ee8-4a8b-9432-5a5a5dfaa142","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:08911ef5-5ee8-4a8b-9432-5a5a5dfaa142","Tidal asymmetry and residual sediment transport in estuaries","Wang, Z.B.; Jeuken, C.; De Vriend, H.J.","Deltares","1999","Theoretical study on tidal asymmetry and application to the Westerschelde estuary.","tidal asymmetry; Westerschelde; tidal cycle; sediment transport; estuary","en","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:5cf30bdd-d81f-438d-86ec-bcddb1fa1b07","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:5cf30bdd-d81f-438d-86ec-bcddb1fa1b07","Ontmenging van granulaire materialen bij toepassingen in waterbouwkundige constructies: Voorspelling en beoordeling van ontmengingsinvloeden in praktijksituaties","Vrijling, J.K.; Hauer, M.; Van der Meulen, T.","","1998","Het verschijnsel ontmenging is al sinds lang een bekend fenomeen bij ontwerpers en constructeurs van granuiaire constructies.

Uit deze analyse moeten de duinontwikkeling en het bodemtransport in de Bovenrijn en de Waal naar voren komen. Daarvoor wordt gebruik gemaakt van het dune tracking programma DT2D. In de Bovenrijn zijn bij !age afvoeren aileen kleine duinen aanwezig. Bij afvoeren kleiner dan 7000 m3/s zijn er alleen kleine veranderingen in de hoogte en de steilheid van de duinen. Bij afvoeren groter dan 7000 m3/s nemen de duinlengte, hoogte en steilheid zeer snel toe, Als het hoogwater weer afneemt blijft de duinlengte toenemen, de hoogte en steilheid nemen wel sterk af. De grote duinen verdwijnen langzaam en worden inactief. Tijdens het dalen van de afvoer verschijnen er plotseling nieuwe kleine duinen gesuperponeerd op de grote duinen. Het bodemtransport door duinen wordt geheel overgenomen door deze kleine duinen. In de Waal zijn altijd twee soorten duinen aanwezig. De kleine duinen zijn gesuperponeerd op de grote duinen maar komen vooral voor in het diepe deel van de rivier. De grote duinen komen het meeste voor in het ondiepe deel. Bij afvoeren lager dan 3000 m3/s neemt de duinlengte af en de hoogte en steilheid toe als de afvoer toeneemt. Bij de kleine duinen is het niet duidelijk wat er gebeurt omdat er te weinig informatie is. Bij afvoeren boven 3000 m3/s zijn de dimensies van beide duinsoorten stabiel. De grote duinen hebben dan een lengte van 55m, een hoogte 1 ,2m en een lijzijde helling van 4,5°. De kleine duinen hebben een lengte van 15m, een hoogte van 0,5m en een lijzijde helling van 7°. Zowel de migratiesnelheid als het bodemtransport (uitgezet in een zogenaamd Q-S diagram) blijven toenemen bij een toename van de afvoer maar dat deze toename bij afvoeren groter dan 3000 m3/s minder snel verloopt.","Waal; afvoergolf; rivierduinen; sediment transport; bodemvormen","nl","report","UU, IMAU (Universiteit van Utrecht)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:c38e218b-e9e6-43f9-87f3-b4bc61686a9a","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:c38e218b-e9e6-43f9-87f3-b4bc61686a9a","Probabilistische analyse stabiliteitsvoorspellers","Akkerman, G.J.; Verheij, H.J.","","1998","","sedimenttransport; sediment transport; turbulentie; turbulence; korrels; grains; stabiliteit; stability","nl","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:09d5a5c7-616e-4e96-b557-4e0fbe920c0e","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:09d5a5c7-616e-4e96-b557-4e0fbe920c0e","Literatuurinventarisatie stabiliteitsvoorspellers en -gegevens","Akkerman, G.J.; Verheij, H.J.","","1998","","turbulentie; turbulence; korrels; grains; stabiliteit; stability; stroming; flow; sedimenttransport; sediment transport","nl","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:759597b8-ed4c-435b-97f3-3ac7a17859c0","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:759597b8-ed4c-435b-97f3-3ac7a17859c0","Erosie onder een geometrisch open filter","Booij, R.","","1998","Deze notitie beschrijft de resultaten van een inleidend onderzoek naar de mechanismen van de erosie van de basislaag onder geometrisch open filters. Hierbij wordt in eerste instantie uitgegaan van de beter onderzochte erosie van de bodem van een waterloop zonder beschermende filterlaag. Op basis van metingen van Van Os (1998) in een inleidend onderzoek wordt daama de stroming in een filterlaag geanalyseerd. De stroming tussen de filterelementen blijkt qua karakter sterk te verschillen van de strorning in de waterloop. Gemiddelde snelheid en schuifspanning zijn gering. Bij de relatief sterke fluctuaties van de snelheid kunnen twee duidelijk verschillende schalen onderscheiden worden: kortdurende fluctuaties die te maken hebben met de turbulentie in de porien tussen de filterelementen en langdurende fluctuaties die lijken samen te hangen met de grootschalige turbulenties in de waterloop. Gebaseerd op de analyse van de metingen in de filterlaag is het volgende beeld van het mechanisme van de erosie van de basislaag onder een filter ontwikkeld. Drukkrachten samenhangend met de kortdurende fluctuaties maken de zandkorrels los uit de basislaag en de langdurende fluctuaties zorgen voor het transport van de zandkorre1s over de filterlaag. Aangetoond wordt dat in elk geval bij de besproken metingen dit laatste transport bepalend is voor de uiteindelijke erosie van de basislaag. Op grond van het geschetste model van de erosie onder filters lijkt het goed mogelijk tot ontwerpregels voor verschillende soorten waterlopen en stromingssituaties te komen. Een schatting geeft aan dat deze erosie de toepasbaarheid van de gebruikelijke geometrisch open filters beperkt. Om de vele vragen en onzekerheden die op grond van deze uitwerking van het inleidend onderzoek van Van Os kunnen worden geformuleerd op te lossen is aanvullend onderzoek nodig. Hiervoor worden suggesties gedaan.","erosion; filter; geometrically open filter; sediment transport","nl","report","TU Delft","","","","","","","","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:8b978f71-0f7b-4fd0-ae51-6fbd33f485e2","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:8b978f71-0f7b-4fd0-ae51-6fbd33f485e2","Wind-, golf-, en stromingsgeïnduceerd sedimenttransport in kribvakken langs de Waal","Lenders, Roger; van Maren, Bas; Mol, Jan-Willem","Universiteit Utrecht, IMAU","1998","Kribvakmetingen Druten/Ochten juli 1996 tot april 1997.

Because sheet-flow corresponds to conditions of high shear stress, large amounts of sand are transported. Therefore it is an important part of the total sand transport (sheet-flow and suspended load). Sand transport is a very important phenomenon in almost all coastal engineering problems. When a harbour is to be developed it is important to know how much sand is transported and in what direction, in order to prevent sedimentation problems in the entrance channel or in the harbour itself. Another example deals with coastal defence measures to prevent erosion of a beach. Either the use of coastal structures, like breakwaters, groynes etc., or a beach nourishment scheme requires information about the magnitude and direction of the general and local sand transport. Unlike the sand transport in rivers, which can be assumed to occur in a merely one- dimensional, steady uniform flow, the sand transport at the coast is the result of a complex interaction of steady currents and a wave-induced unsteady oscillatory flow at an arbitrary angle to the current. In order to predict the resulting sand transport, many different models have been developed. The aim of this literature study is to present an overview of the models, that predict the unsteady sand transport in sheet-flow conditions. Some of the models are specifically derived for sand transport under sheet-flow conditions, while others have a more general basis. A comparison is made between the capability of the different existing models in predicting the sand transport in sheet-flow conditions. Moreover also the different experimental studies on sand transport in oscillatory flow are presented.

Although some models took beach slopes into account, most of the calibrated data were from flat-bed experiments, and most experiments were carried out on a rather small scale. Under the framework of the European Large Installation Plan, to achieve high quality and high resolution data on hydrodynamics and sediment transport dynamics on a natural 2DV beach under equilibrium, erosive and accretive conditions, a programme of detailed measurements of hydrodynamics and sediment transport in the surf zone has been carried out in DELFT HYDRAULICS' Delta Flume in the period from April to June 1993 (DELFT HYDRAULICS 1994). Hence a set of new data about beach evolution and acting velocity moments has become available. The objectives of the present study are: (1) to derive the measured crossshore sediment transport rates from the profile measurements, (2) to predict cross-shore sediment transport rates from measured velocity moments by using several existing mathematical models, (3) to compare the results between measured and computed data and [ if (3) yields a poor comparison ] (4) to propose a modified model.

These measurements are required to ensure the understanding of these parameters and their interaction with bed elevation changes. In particular, more information is sought on the relative contributions of each tide in a spring-neap cycle and on the effect of waves. This knowledge is necessary to refine and verify the algorithms used in numerical models of the erosion and deposition processes. This should lead to improved confidence in these models, in particular when .making long-term predictions of bed elevation changes. The measurement system will be capable of unattended deployment for a complete spring-neap cycle (15 days) and measures the following: (1) Turbulent velocities in 3 orthogonal directions close to the bed. (2) Turbidity levels at 3 heights in the bottom 1m of the water column. (3) Water depths. (4) Wave characteristics. (5) Bed elevation changes. The system has integral signal conditioning, data logging facilities and power supplies. The basic calibrations of all the instruments in the measurement system have been established during laboratory tests. The instruments included in the measurement system have been selected not only on the grounds of the nature and range of the data required but also to minimise the system's power consumption. The choice of annular electromagnetic current meters ensures the system is suitable for use in wave or current only conditions or combined waves and currents. All the underwater components of the system have been pressure tested to a depth equivalent to approximately 10m of water column. A suite of data analysis computer programs has been developed to process the data collected by the measurement system efficiently.","bed elavation; field measurements; measurement equipment; measurement system; cohesive sediment; sediment transport; sediment transport measurement","en","report","HR Wallingford","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:3dd87042-27c5-438d-b8d4-9271810ab3ee","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:3dd87042-27c5-438d-b8d4-9271810ab3ee","Considerations on cross-shore sediment transport","Rijn, L.C. van","","1993","","zandtransportformules; sand transport formulae; sedimenttransport; sediment transport; sedimenttransportmodellen; sediment transport models; sedimenttransportformules; sediment transport formulae; kustmorfologie; coastal morphology; Nederland","en","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:c3127a85-c6e1-4166-bc47-5550fe522b6b","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:c3127a85-c6e1-4166-bc47-5550fe522b6b","Impact of sea level rise on the morphology of the Wadden Sea in the scope of its ecological function (phase 4): General considerations on hydraulic conditions, sediment transports, sand balance, bed composition and impact of sea-level rise on tidal flats","Eysink, W.D.","","1993","","zeespiegelrijzing; sea level rise; sedimenttransport; sediment transport; beddingvormen; bed forms; zandtransport; sand transport; wadden; mud flats; Waddenzee","en","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:eccee569-9391-48e4-a550-06ffae10de39","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:eccee569-9391-48e4-a550-06ffae10de39","Analysis of basic equations for sediment-laden flows","Sloff, C.J.","","1993","Derivations and analyses of basic equations for I-dimensional sediment-laden flow (concentrations up to about 10% of volume) on a mobile bed are presented .

In the first case, which applies to laboratory experiments in an annular flume, for example, the water layer is the turbulent mixed layer that erodes the quiescent fluid-mud layer. In the second case the fluid-mud layer is the mixed layer, which deepens because of entrainment of water from the overlying water layer. The water layer then is the quiescent layer. The viscous drag of the quiescent layer due to the flow in the mixed layer, which effect can play a part in laboratory experiments, is accounted for.

The study deals with the water motion in the harbor entrance, which motion causes the siltation. As yet, too little is known about this complicated time-dependent water motion. The data obtained during the research will be used to calibrate the 3-D numerical model Trisula, so that this model can be used as a tool to predict the water motion in a harbor entrance. With the present knowledge of the transport of cohesive sediments, a better prediction of the siltation of a particular harbor entrance will then be possible. Experiments have been performed in a physical model at the Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics of the Delft University of Technology. In these experiments the influences, on the flow patterns in the harbor entrance and the exchange of heat between harbor and river, of the geometries of the harbor and the harbor entrance, the tidal period and tidal water level changes were examined. Measurements of the time-dependent velocity and temperature fields were made in five model harbors. In the experiments without tidal water level changes three harbors had their length axes perpendicular to the length axis of the river, namely (1) a square harbor of 1 m2, (2) a rectangular harbor of 1 x 2 m2 and (3) a square harbor of 1 m2 with a narrowed entrance of 0.5 m; one harbor, (4), of 1 m2 and an entrance width of 1 m had its length axis at an angle of 45 degrees to the length axis of the flume. In the experiment with tidal water level changes a rectangular harbor, (5), with an entrance width of 1 m and a storage area of 8 m2 had its length axis perpendicular to the length axis of the river. It can be concluded that: details of circulating flows and gyres depend markedly on the geometry of the harbor. the progress of the phenomena after slack water in model harbor (2), that is the development of a new primary gyre, does not seem to depend on the tidal period. As a consequence, the phase difference between the development of the gyre and the accelerating flow in the river increases as the period decreases. the flow pattern in the harbor is highly influenced by the orientation of the harbor entrance. An explanation for this phenomenon is deficient at the moment. in the model harbors, except harbor (3), a quite strong secondary current is present in the gyre. The maximum velocity in the secondary current is on the average 15 per cent of the main flow. This means that a three-dimensional numerical model will be necessary to simulate the flow pattern in the harbor correctly. close to the downstream sidewall, in all model harbors, larger water velocities (20 to 50 per cent larger) were observed near the bottom than higher in the water column. Near the bed high-momentum fluid from the mixing layer between harbor and river appears to be transported into the harbor. tidal water level changes cause an acceleration in the development of the new gyre towards high tide. Towards low tide the development of the new gyre is hindered by the emptying of the basin. in harbors (1), (2) and (4) a large increase in advective exchange takes place around slack water. The influence of turbulence seems to be of secondary importance during this phase of the tide. a narrowed entrance highly reduces the exchange of mass between harbor and river at slackwater. if the flow pattern in the harbor comprises various gyres, in this research harbor (2), the normalized exchange will be less because the secondary,tertiary, etc. gyres do not contribute to the exchange process. wgen the current in the river is around maximum,the flow is quasi-steady for a quite large duration. The exchange then takes place through the mixing layer between river and harbor, that is, it is caused by turbulent motions only. although during slack water a less refined turbulence model is sufficient in a numerical model, the modeling of turbulence is important during the quasi-steady phase of the tide, especially when the geometry of the entrance is more complex (e.g. harbor (4)).","siltation; tidal harbor; water motion; sediment transport; harbor entrance; velocity field; laboratory observations","en","report","TU Delft, Department of Hydraulic Engineering","","","","","","","","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:2dbed657-4801-4c34-a139-7d9d95ae6583","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:2dbed657-4801-4c34-a139-7d9d95ae6583","Suspended-load experiments in a curved flume, run no. 3","Talmon, A.M.; De Graaff, J.","","1989","A laboratory experiment in a 180 degree curved flume with a mobile bed and suspended sediment transport is described.

This siltation results from a net transport of sediment into the harbor caused by the water motion in the harbor entrance. The water motion is very complex and of a three-dimensional nature. Three main mechanisms can be distinguished: (1) exchange in consequence of water flowing along the mouth of the harbor and the resulting eddies in the harbor entrance, (2) exchange in consequence of variations in water level of the adjacent waterbody (e.g. sea, estuary or river) , and (3) exchange in consequence of a density difference between harbor and adjacent waterbody. For a more extensive discussion of the problem see Langendoen (1988). The first two mechanisms are being examined in a physical model in the Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics of the Delft University. Measurements were made to generate a dataset by which numerical models of the flow in harbor entrances can be tested. A more distant goal of this project is to obtain insight in the influence of the geometry of the entrance on siltation of the harbor. The first part of the research is discussed in this report. It concerns the water motion in a square harbor due to an oscillatory flow in the adjacent waterbody (here a tidal river). The time-varying depth averaged flow patterns in the harbor have been measured. These flow patterns are then compared to the results of preliminary calculations with a numerical model that solves the shallow water equations. In this report a simple geometry of the tidal river and the harbor was considered as a first step. Depth averaged flow patterns were measured and calculated. The phenomena which occurred in the harbor entrance around and after slack water may be important for the exchange of matter between harbor and river. Large parcels of water from the river are exchanged with water from the harbor. This convective exchange is much larger than the exchange around maximum current in the river, when there is only a turbulent transport through the shear layer at the transition between harbor and river. The mathematical model ESTRA, which has been used to study the exchange of a well-mixed solute, also predicted this behavior.","flow pattern; harbor; tidal river; siltation; sediment transport; laboratory observations","en","report","TU Delft, Department of Hydraulic Engineering","","","","","","","","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:21873027-98ea-42eb-afdb-e2fc48271ae3","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:21873027-98ea-42eb-afdb-e2fc48271ae3","Sediment transport in rivers - report on experimental and theoretical investigations","De Vriend, H.J.; Koch, F.G.","TU Delft","1987","I: Flow of water in a curved open channel with a fixed plane bed II: Flow of water in a curved open channel with a fixed uneven bed III: Accuracy of measurements in a curved open channel In this report the flow of water in a curved open channel, which consists of a38 m long straight section followed by a 90° bend with a radius of 50 m (see Figure 1), has been investigated. The channel cross-section was rectangular with a horizontal concrete bed, a width of 6 m, and a depth of flow of 0.25 m, and measurements were executed at two discharges: 0.610m3 /s and0.305 m3/s (average velocities of about 0.4 m/s and 0.2 m/s respectively). During these experiments the following phenomena were investigated: a. the vertical distribution of the horizontal velocity components (main flow and helical flow) ; b. the horizontal distribution of the total depth-averaged velocity; and c, the horizontal distribution of the water surface elevation. The experimental results have been compared with the results of a mathematical model of flow in curved open channels, developed at the Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics of the Delft University of Technology.The vertical distributions of the main velocity turned out to be highly similar throughout the flow field, the distribution being well described by the logarithmic profile. The helical velocities derived from the measured data were too inaccurate to compare them more than roughly with their theoretical distributions. The point in a cross-section where the observed depth-averaged velocity reaches its maximum lies near the inner wall in the first part of the curve and moving downstream it gradually shifts towards the outer wall. This phenomenon is attributed to the advective influence of the helical flow. As this influence is not accounted for in the present mathematical model, this model does not predict the phenomenon. The water surface configuration agreed reasonably well with the computed configuration.","sediment transport; river flow; river morphology; bed stability","en","report","Delft Hydraulics","","","","","","","","","","","","TOW","" "uuid:f92bed59-83dd-43ba-aaa2-0f1d50f0c425","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:f92bed59-83dd-43ba-aaa2-0f1d50f0c425","Morphological computations","De Vries, M.","","1987","Lecture notes on morphological computations","sediment transport; morhpodynamics","en","book","TU Delft","","","","","","","","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:ad0c1f8d-e292-48e2-845d-8d6e6fa0ee5c","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:ad0c1f8d-e292-48e2-845d-8d6e6fa0ee5c","Zand-watermengselstromingen: Het gedrag van zand-watermengselstromingen boven water: Verslag experimentele vervolgstudie","Mastbergen, D.R.; Kemenade, A.J.M. van; Winterwerp, J.C.; Pernis, W.J. van; Groot, M.B. de","","1987","","sedimenttransport; sediment transport; erosie; erosion; sedimentatie; sedimentation; beddingvormen; bed forms; zandstorting; sand dumping; zand-watermengsels; sand slurries; zandconcentratiemeting; sand concentration measurement","nl","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:27ba9f79-be2d-432d-901f-322d2731b64d","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:27ba9f79-be2d-432d-901f-322d2731b64d","Dwarstransportstudie voordelta: Een onderzoek naar profielontwikkelingen door dwarstransport in de Zeeuwse voordelta's als gevolg van gehele of gedeeltelijke afsluiting van de estuaria","Steetzel, H.J.","Deltares","1986","","bedload transport; bodemtransport; dwarsstroming; estuaria; estuaries; sedimenttransport; sediment transport; transverse flow; Zeeland","nl","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:e54e1dac-e104-48f4-8ea9-bbff4cc21b34","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:e54e1dac-e104-48f4-8ea9-bbff4cc21b34","Influence of a sloping bed on the sediment transport direction","Van Mierlo, M.C.L.M.","TU Delft","1986","From Struiksma et al (1985) it can be concluded that more experimental evidence is needed to achieve a correct formulation. Generally the available data can only be used for an integral check as, for instance, was done by Zimmerman and Kennedy· ( 1978). More useful information could be obtained by carrying out experiments directed at the individual components. The first experimental attempts in straight flumes to study the influence of the sloping bed component alone were carried out by Freds6e (1978) and Wan (1981). However, they did not arrive at uniform conditions in the experiments and therefore the interpretation of the results was difficult. In addition, the range of flow conditions used was relatively small. The experiments presented in this report can be considered as a continuation of these experiments. Much attention was paid to the establishment of uniform conditions in the flume and a wide range of flow conditions has been used. The present experiments were carried out in a straight flume under prevailing bed load conditions in which insignificant grain sorting took place. Before the start of each experiment a constant transverse sloping bed profile and a constant longitudinal bed slope were prepared over the entire length of the flume. The influence of the transverse sloping bed profile on the direction of the sediment transport was determined from the experiments by means of the first-order solution of the set of equations, which describe the tilting of the transverse bed profile as a function of time.","sediment transport; river morphology","en","report","Deltares","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:97760162-5898-460a-94fa-afd133c9b6c8","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:97760162-5898-460a-94fa-afd133c9b6c8","Short course on dynamics of sand beaches","Yen, C.C.; Tang, F.L.W.; Hou, H.S.; Ou, S.H.","Chinese institute of civil and hydraulic engineering; Council of ocean engineering","1986","-short course given at the20th ICCE 1986 in Taipeh: Mitisuyasu – Breaking waves and their roles in the ocean Bretschneider – On Hurricane model Bijker – Movable bed models for coastal problems Christensen – Hydraulic model Swart - Prediction of beach changes and equilibrium profiles Dean – Littoral transport budget Chiu – Coastal sediment survey Tang – Comparison of wave statistics between Taiwan Street and North Sea Edge – Beach renourishment dynamics Arno – Beach erosion control Hou – Case study: model study of LinKou power plant Chang – Special topic: Layout, design, planning, maintenance and survey of marine cable","beach nourishment; coast; sediment transport; littoral drift","en","report","Chinese institute of civil and hydraulic engineering","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:cdc5c569-1fb8-4aaa-a05b-6b294e69ec32","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:cdc5c569-1fb8-4aaa-a05b-6b294e69ec32","Stormvloedkering Oosterschelde: Invloed van scheve bouwfasen op het ontstaan van kortsluitingsgeulen : verslag berekeningen met WAMOR","Flokstra, C.","Deltares","1985","","closure gaps; flow patterns; sedimenttransport; sediment transport; sluitgaten; stroombeelden; Zeeland","nl","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:3ec97aa3-fa8f-42cc-8c4e-1c3ac8165be0","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:3ec97aa3-fa8f-42cc-8c4e-1c3ac8165be0","Aggradation and Degradation of Alluvial-Channel Beds","Jaramillo Torres, W.F.; Jain, S.C.","Iowa Institute of Hydraulic Research","1984","The objectives of the present investigation were the determination of the characteristic parameters of morphological processes in alluvial channels. Special attention was directed toward the aggradation process due to total sediment-load augmentation and degradation due to either sediment-discharge diminution or base-level lowering. Linear and nonlinear parabolic formulations based on validated mathematical expressions of the equations governing one-dimensional flows over movable beds were developed. The classical linear, parabolic model was revisited as well. Analytical solutions for the characteristic parameters of aggradation and degradation processes in alluvial channels of semi-infinite and finite length subjected to both time dependent and time independent boundary conditions were obtained. The analytical solutions developed can be used in conjunction with almost any of the sediment-transport-rate and friction-factor predictors available. The validity and limitations of the linear and nonlinear parabolic models and their corresponding solutions were assessed by means of comparison with flume data. The ranges of application for both linear and nonlinear models were established. As a result of its more rigorous formulation, the nonlinear parabolic model, which constitutes the principal contribution of this study, was found to be particularly useful and accurate for a wide range of practical applications. The good prediction capabilities of the nonlinear model can be enhanced through the use of available laboratory and/or field data, which enable an easy and effective calibration of the model. Easy-to-follow application, calibration, and extrapolation procedures are outlined. Experiments on the evolution of the bed forms during aggradation due to a sudden increase in total sediment discharge were performed. Analyses of the experimental data led to a better understanding of the phenomena involved, to an explanation of the experimental findings of the present and similar investigations, and to justification of some of the main assumptions introduced in the development of mathematical models for unsteady nonuniform flows over deformable beds.","alluvial-channel beds; bed deformation; sediment transport; bedload transport","en","report","The University of Iowa","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:98791127-e7ae-40a1-b850-67d575fa1289","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:98791127-e7ae-40a1-b850-67d575fa1289","Shore protection manual: Volume I and II","Anonymus, A.","TU Delft","1984","Design manual for coastal structures.

The secondary-flow strength and the bed topography are uncoupled from the calculation of distributions of lateral shift velocity and streamwise velocity. This is accomplished by, first, calculating the secondary-flow strength on the basis of conservation of flux of moment-of-momentum, and, second, determining the bed topography on the basis of radial force equilibrium of the moving bed layer. ii. The distributions of lateral shift velocity and depth-averaged streamwise velocity are calculated, for the warped channel determined as described in step i above, from the depth-integrated equations expressing conservation of mass and momentum. It was concluded that for flows which satisfy (24), it is not necessary to include the third conservation equation, that for radial-direction momentum, or to iterate among three equations to obtain a solution. The numerical scheme utilizes the backward finite-difference method, and evaluates transverse and streamwise distributions of the radial mass-shift velocity and the depth-averaged streamwise velocity. Numerical simulations utilizing the model developed were made for one laboratory flow, two Sacramento River flows, and three different idealized channel bends. The principal conclusions obtained from the simulations are as follows: i. Generally satisfactory agreement between computed and measured results was obtained by utilizing error tolerances of E_U and E_V of 2% and 0.2%, respectively. In the absence of better information, it is recommended that alpha = 1.00 and beta = 3.50 be utilized. In instances where actual field data are available on the rate of development and equilibrium values of S_T, alpha and beta should be adjusted on the basis of the data. ii. The most cost-effective square-grid size is approximately equal to the mean flow depth. iii. The computer program is capable of simulating flow in multiple-bend channels with stepwise-varying radius of curvature. On the basis of the numerical simulations, it was found that the maximum permissible stepwise change of centerline curvature for which the program will run is about 2.5% in the case of increasing Rc and about 10% for decreasing Rc.","numerical modelling; sediment transport; alluvial river; river bend; modelling","en","report","Iowa Institute of Hydraulic Research","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:831ea063-b7aa-4b77-9157-9d6978d88146","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:831ea063-b7aa-4b77-9157-9d6978d88146","Sediment discharge measurement and calculation: Techniques for use at river gauging stations","Bolton, P.","TU Delft","1983","The terms 'wash load', 'suspended bed material load' and 'bed load' are not clearly defined but, if applied with care, provide a useful basis for sub-dividing the total discharge of sediment in a river for the purpose of measurement. The accuracy with which each of the three types of sediment transport must be measured will depend on their relative magnitudes and on the purposes for which data are being collected. This paper contains a proposed programme of measurements to be undertaken on a typical tropical river, one carrying appreciable wash load discharges and in which the suspended bed material discharges are large relative to the bed load discharges. The purpose of the programme is to provide data on the total discharge of sediment in such a river for studies of catchment erosion or reservoir sedimentation. In outline, the proposed programme is as follows: i) use an adequately calibrated turbidity monitor to provide a continuous record of wash load concentrations; ii) undertake a short intensive programme of pumped sampling to provide information about the relationship between suspended bed material discharges .and selected hydraulic parameters (principally river level); iii) apply this relationship to recorded flow discharge data to provide values of suspended bed material discharge over the period of available hydrological data; and iv) apply empirical and theoretical methods to provide an estimate of the magnitude of the 'bed load' (including unmeasured suspended bed material load close to the bed) relative to the measured suspended bed material load. The theoretical basis for this programme is examined in this paper. In particular, details of the assumptions made, and their implications, are provided. In addition, practical details of the field procedures and of the methods of analysis relating to pumped sampling in such rivers are described.","wash load; bed load; suspended load; sediment transport; river sedimentation; erosion","en","report","HR Wallingford","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:980429b6-ad9d-4246-bb88-e0ff2f9753d9","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:980429b6-ad9d-4246-bb88-e0ff2f9753d9","Erosion côtière au Cap Lopez, Gabon, due à un canyon sous-marin","Verhagen, H.J.","TU Delft","1983","Analysis of the effect of a submarine canyon on the coastal erosion near Cap Lopez, Gabon, using mathematical modelling","canyon; coastal erosion; sediment transport","fr","report","Hydronamic","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:2cf67a5b-d2c4-4287-8ed2-16f1b27bdbcc","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:2cf67a5b-d2c4-4287-8ed2-16f1b27bdbcc","A depth integrated model for suspended transport","Galappatti, R.","","1983","A new depth averaged model for suspended sediment transport in open channels has been developed based on an asymptotic solution to the two dimensional convection-diffusion equation in the vertical plane.

The study consists of a series of laboratory experiments in a straight flume under steady, uniform (equilibrium) conditions with a restriction to bed-load transport and dune regime. The flume was fed upstream by different mixtures of two very narrow sieved size fractions. During one experiment the total amount and composition of the input mixture, the water discharge and the downstream water level were kept constant. When equilibrium was reached besides regular registrations of water and bed level the dunes were extensively sampled. The latter occurred in such a way that vertical probability distributions of the size fractions could be determined. The main results of the experiments are: (i) Vertical sorting of the size fractions occurred in all experiments: at the steep lee side of the dunes the coarse size fraction is generally deposited at a lower level than the fine size fraction. Differences in volume concentration per size fraction until 30% occur between upper and lower layers. (ii) A transition layer was found which is generally below the propagating dunes; it has a relatively coarse composition (vertical sorting:) and has a thickness of 0.1 - 0.5 H (H = average dune height). Exchange of size fractions between this layer and the upper bed layer occurs at a time scale much larger than the dune period. (iii) Because of the phenomena described above several assumptions in a mathematical model for non-uniform sediment (Ribberink, 1980) concerning the transport layer and the deposition/erosion of size fractions to/from non-moving bed are generally not fulfilled. (iv) Data are obtained for the verification and development of semi empirical components in the mathematical model (i.e. transportformula per size fraction, predictors for dune height and bed roughness).The theory of Egiazaroff (1965) concerning the critical bed shear stress per size fraction seems to be useful in a bed-load formula per size fraction of the type of Meyer-Peter & Mueller (1948). (v) A bed sampling technique was developed and suggestions are made concerning the conditions of a non -equilibrium experiment which has the aim to verify the above-mentioned mathematical model for non-uniform sediment.","sediment transport; bed load transport; sediment transport measurement","en","report","Delft University of Technology","","","","","","","","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:7b880c99-44d1-4a1a-9315-3a6c94deea4c","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:7b880c99-44d1-4a1a-9315-3a6c94deea4c","Concentratie-verdeling onder golven en stroom: De invloed van bodemhelling, waterdiepte, brekende golven, orbitaalsnelheid en stroomsnelheid","Bosman, J.J.","Deltares","1982","","sand concentration; sedimentconcentratie; sediment concentration; sedimenttransport; sediment transport; suspensies; suspensions; zandconcentratie","nl","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:42dc0cb5-c452-4c0c-a1bb-d8e47b9ce011","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:42dc0cb5-c452-4c0c-a1bb-d8e47b9ce011","Probabilistic approach on course material transport under waves: Vol. 1 Theory and experiment.","Katsui, H.","","1982","The probabilistic design method of a cover layer of pipe line under the horizontal bottom is described. By assuming that the water velocity at the bottom is Rayleigh distributed, probability of bottom shear stress was derived. With a combination of the probability function of bottom shear and a simple sediment transport formula given by Madsen and Grant (1976), the expected transport rate was calculated. The results gave a warning that conventional design methods have a risk to underestimate the amount of loss.of covering material. To confirm the established formulas about inception of motion of particles and sediment transport under waves, some experiments were carried out. As for inception of particle motion, comparison between steady flow condition and wave condition was, done. It turned out that the one gives lower value than the other, and that Shields' curve gives the lower limit of the total experimental data. The data of critical velocity under waves agreed to Komar-Miller's formula which involves the factor of wave period. The critical velocity in the direction of wave propagation was found considerably higher than that against it. Sediment transport rate was measured together with velocity. As had been already presented by van de Graaff and Tilmans (1980), the transport-rate could be related to the Fourier components of the velocity. It could also be related to the maximum and minimum velocity. The influence of a phase lag between the first and second terms of the Fourier components, which is closely related to the acceleration and the deceleration of the total velocity, was not clear yet in that specific condition. Critical velocity obtained by the visual observation generally agreed to the limit line of transport-rate (zero line) on both u1 - u2 plane and u(max) - u(min) plane.","sediment transport; course material; probabilistic approach; waves; shear stress","en","report","","","","","","","","","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:9188fed4-1d38-4e28-9667-40ad045c8188","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:9188fed4-1d38-4e28-9667-40ad045c8188","Systematisch onderzoek naar twee- en drie-dimensionale ontgrondingen: Invloed bovenaanvoer en wisselende stroomrichting","Wijngaarden, N.J. van","Deltares","1981","","closure gaps; getijstromen; ontgronding; scour; sedimenttransport; sediment transport; sluitgaten; tidal currents","nl","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:f76f3b21-9e7c-4af6-9ae0-d3f650fb140d","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:f76f3b21-9e7c-4af6-9ae0-d3f650fb140d","River regime based on sediment transport concepts","White, W.R.; Paris, E.; Bettess, R.","HR Wallingford","1981","Rational regime relationships for the width, depth and slope of a river in equilibrium are developed using the Ackers and White sediment transport formula and the White, Paris and Bettess friction relationships, together with a principle of maximum sediment transporting capacity.

The Linear Longshore Current Model predicts the relatively small longshore current induced by monochromatic, two dimensional, gravity waves of finite height and near normal incidence breaking on a plane, impermeable, gently sloping bottom in the presence of a shorenormal jetty when the offshore wave height, wave period, wave angle and water depth are known, along with the beach slope and roughness. The Nonlinear Longshore Current Model predicts a longshore current using the same input as its linear counterpart, but the nonlinear model removes the assumptions of a relatively small current and near normal wave incidence and is valid only for uniform longshore conditions. The Linear Longshore Sediment Transport Model predicts the integrated, time averaged longshore sediment transport for a relatively small current and near normal wave incidence under uniform longshore conditions and also describes the initial response of a plane bed downstream of a shorenormal jetty. The longshore current models may be considered as a series of modifications of the original model of Longuet-Higgins (1970), while the Linear Longshore Sediment Transport Model is a surf zone application of the work of Madsen and Grant (1976a) on nonbreaking wave induced sediment transport. Calibration yields physically plausible behavior for the three model parameters while fixed bed, laboratory movable bed and field testing show a general longshore current model accuracy of about 20%, where the lat ter two data bases only test the Linear Longshore Current Model. The Linear Longshore Sediment Transport Model matches the laboratory data to an accuracy of about 20% but overpredicts the field data by a factor of 5; in view of the latter finding, the model should only be considered as an order of magnitude estimator of longshore sediment transport. To aid in model use, examples of the three models are presented in an appendix in the back of this report.","longshore currents; sediment transport; surf zone; modelling; transport models","en","report","Massachusetts Institute of Technology","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:7ae20959-482d-40bc-876f-c06bc3691493","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:7ae20959-482d-40bc-876f-c06bc3691493","Lecture notes on local scour","Breusers, H.N.C.","TU Delft","1979","Lecture note for the international course.","scour; sediment transport","en","report","IHE Delft","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:e9b10457-0dec-4a2c-9d22-5f5c5d98ea53","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:e9b10457-0dec-4a2c-9d22-5f5c5d98ea53","Reduktie ontgrondingskuilen door sedimenttransport","Rijn, L.C. van","Deltares","1978","","aanzanding; ontgronding; scour; sedimentation of sand; sedimenttransport; sediment transport; sleuven; trenches","nl","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:f59d8b43-0f3c-4670-8433-7f34c4618d89","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:f59d8b43-0f3c-4670-8433-7f34c4618d89","Morphological computations for suspended sediment transport: unsteady sediment transport","Kerssens, P.J.M.","Waterloopkundig Laboratorium","1978","The present report gives a description of the mathematical model for suspended sediment transport. The model can be used to simulate the movement of suspended sediment in a two-dimensional (longitudinal and vertical) flow field. It can also be applied to determine bed level changes caused by any human interference in the regime or geometry of a river or estuary. Both for non-uniform and unsteady conditions the morphological behaviour in time can be described. It must be emphasized, however, that the method is restricted to non-cohesive and nearly uniform sediment material. In this report the attention is paid mainly to the sediment diffusion equation, the derivation of the sediment diffusion coefficient, the boundary conditions and the numerical solution method, while some of the computational aspects are described extensively. The derivation of the equations governing the motion of the water and the continuity of the bed-sediment is only briefly dealt with, as this can be found elsewhere, together with the computational method to solve the equations and to compute the bed-level changes. As a conclusion of the present investigation the mathematical model to simulate the morphological behaviour of a stream, described in this report can be considered as a practical tool for many engineering problems. In particular its applicability has already been proved for the computation of sedimentation in trenches with relatively gentle slopes, sand-traps, etc.. Moreover by a verification of the mathematical model on a flume investigation on this subject, the results turned out to be rather reliable. The applicability and reliability of the bed-load model, whose equations and computational method have been used to determine the hydraulic conditions and the bed-level changes, have, however, been shown before.","sediment transport; rivers; suspended material","en","report","Waterloopkundig laboratorium (Deltares)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:08388ab0-24aa-48d2-b4ce-c42f71374fcc","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:08388ab0-24aa-48d2-b4ce-c42f71374fcc","Zandtransporten evenwijdig aan de kust, vergelijking zandtransportformules","Van de Graaff, J.; Van Overeem, J.","","1977","Als T.O.W. onderzoek is door het Waterloopkundig Laboratorium een onderzoek uitgevoerd waarbij enkele moderne zandtransportformules zodanig zijn aangepast dat de gecombineerde werking van golven en stroom in rekening kan worden gebracht.

(promotor)","1974","In this thesis first a general derivation is given of the 'macro'-equations of mass- and linear-momentum balance that govern the mo'mentum transfer from a Newtonian fluid to rigid particles in a fluid-solid mixture. In particular, attention is paid to a) the attenuation of viscous-momentum transfer from the boundary to the interior of a granular bed subject to a surface flow, b) the drag and lift forces exerted by a turbulent shear flow on particles of the bed surface, and, c) the balance of forces acting on a bed load under uniform-flow conditions. It is shown that filter flow driven by shearing along the boundary of a granular sediment bed exerts a drag force on a layer of only two or three particle diameters within the bed. A drag force on the bulk mass of sediment is only exerted by a pore-pressure gradient. Stability conditions are formulated for a loose granular bed subject to erosive flow, at SHIELDS' grain-movement condition and dUring bed-load transport. 'Macro'-stresses acting along 'wavy' surfaces parallel to the bed are defined for that purpose, and an attenuation factor is introduced for the transmission of turbulent fluid shear from the surface towards the interior of the bed. It is shown that SHIELDS' dimensionless expression for the critical bed shear stress at the threshold of continuous sediment motion, 1/Phi , must reach a constant value for low-shear Reynolds' numbers (Re* < O. 5), as long as there is no cohesion between the particles. It is concluded that the bed load, consisting of particles rolling and saltating over the bed, must reduce the maximum turbulent fluid shear at the bed surface, at sufficiently high bed shear stress, to the critical threshold drag that would lead to the initiation of non-ceasing scour.","sediment transport; Shields; bed-load transport; erosion","en","doctoral thesis","Krips Repro, Meppel","","","","","","","","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:02dd87f6-a156-4f63-8a97-0dc6b0f6bac2","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:02dd87f6-a156-4f63-8a97-0dc6b0f6bac2","Sedimenttransport","De Vries, M.","","1974","Collegedictaat f10.

Uniform flow was established at discharges of 20, 35, and 50 l/sec. Velocities near the bed, the distribution of sediment in transport, bed geometry, and strength of secondary flow were determined at each discharge . Bed shear stress was assumed to be proportional to the square of the velocity near the bed. Bed shear stresses were also measured with a Preston Tube in a uniform 35 l/sec flow over a dune-free stabilized bed. The stabilized bed was molded to the geometry produced by the same flow over sand. The zone of maximum bed shear stress and maximum sediment discharge is on the point bar in the upstream part of the bend. It crosses the channel centerline in the middle or downstream part of the bend, and follows the concave or down-valley bank to the next point bar downstream. With increasing discharge, secondary currents increase in strength. Consequently the zone of maximum bed shear stress and sediment discharge remains closer to the inside bank across the point bar, and crosses the channel centerline somewhat lower in the bend. Secondary currents were also stronger in the 35 l/sec over the stabilized bed than in the same flow over sand, apparently because no dunes were present to break up secondary flow in the former. The zone of maximum bed shear stress was consequently closer to the inside bank in the stabilized-bed run. It appears that bed geometry is adjusted to provide, at each point on the bed, precisely the shear stress necessary to transport the sediment load supplied. For example the gradual decrease in depth along the down-valley side of the channel from the deep in one bend to the point bar in the next results in a continual acceleration of the flow, and hence in shear stresses here which are higher than average for the channel. For many combinations of discharge, sediment discharge, and sediment character, straight channels are unstable in nature, and the commonly observed meander geometry is stable. To understand why this meander geometry is stable, we consider how displacements from the stable geometry set up forces tending to restore that geometry, From work done to date, it is hypothesized that channel width, W, is determined by cohesiveness of bank materials. The radius of curvature of the bend, R, is then determined by the fact that separation occurs when R/W=<2.5. Measurements of bank shear stress in movable-bed channels with different meander geometries are needed next.","bed shear stress; sediment discharge; sediment transport; meandering; river bends","en","report","University of Uppsala","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:d92b0876-f2db-4c9b-ad0a-782c3557a20c","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:d92b0876-f2db-4c9b-ad0a-782c3557a20c","Lecture notes on sediment transport 1","Breusers, H.N.C.","TU Delft","1974","Lecture notes provided for IHE on sediment transports","sediment transport","en","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:631346c8-b0bf-4d05-b9d8-6157c547c94e","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:631346c8-b0bf-4d05-b9d8-6157c547c94e","Zandtransport in suspensie: Studie diffusietheorie","Wijngaarden, N.J. van","Deltares","1973","","diffusie; diffusion; sedimenttransport; sediment transport; suspended load transport; zwevend transport","nl","report","Deltares (WL)","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:31cfbb10-f986-423a-b5a0-a69af7d4cb44","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:31cfbb10-f986-423a-b5a0-a69af7d4cb44","Analytical approaches to non-steady bedload transport: report on basic research","","Vreugdenhil, C.B.

(promotor)","1961","It has long been observed that at most canal bifurcations the water diverted to the branch does not carry sediment in direct proportion to the rate of flow. Usually, the major part of sediment reaching a bifurcation is diverted into the small branches. This phenomenon has always bothered engineers responsible for the maintenance of irrigation and navigation canals which branch off relatively large alluvial streams. Experimental studies of this problem have usually been limited to the use of fixed bed flumes in which the velocity of flow was measured at different sections in the vicinity of the bifurcation. The distribution of the velocity both vertically and horizontally were then determined and considered as the basis of comparison between different cases. Some investigators studied the pattern of flow near the bed either by the introduction of sediment particles or pottasium permanganate crystals. In the present experimental study, sand was used as bed material and measurements in any run were only taken after the sand movement had reached equilibrium, when the rate of sediment feeding was equal to the sum of the rates of sediment being trapped at the end of main and branch channels. The experimental set-up consisted of a straight flume 20 m long and 0.80 m wide which represented the main canal and a lO m. X 0.50 m flume which branched off the main flume at 45 degrees, 8.20 m. from the upstream end and which represented the branch canal. At first a series of tests was carried out without a sand bed in order to study the wall roughness. Then the sand bed was introduced and a series of tests was carried out to determine the effect of the ratio between branch and main canal discharges upon the sediment behaviour at the bifurcation. In order to control the rate of sediment diversion into a branch, some artificial means have to be applied. In this respect the writer has experimented with the application of dividing walls which direct the bottom flow and guide vanes which direct the surface flow. In general and within the scope of the experiments, the guide vanes gave the better results. Hence, tests were concentrated on the determination of the best location and direction for such vanes, and the results of these experiments led to the recommendations described on fig. 50.","sediment transport; bed load; river diversion; river morphology","en","doctoral thesis","Waltman Delft","","","","","","","","Civil Engineering and Geosciences","Hydraulic Engineering","","","","" "uuid:e3a97534-e3da-4970-a074-5e9db6c89b33","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:e3a97534-e3da-4970-a074-5e9db6c89b33","Discussion of bedload movement formulas of Kalinske, Einstein and Meyer-Peter and Müller and their application to recent measurements of beload in the rivers in Holland","Frijlink, H.C.","Thomas, C.W.

After that, an attempt is made to derive an empirical law of bed-load transport based on recent experimental data. We desire to state expressly that by bed-load transport is meant the movement of the solid material rolling or jumping along the bed of a river; transport of matter in suspension is not included.","sediment transport; bed load","en","report","IAHR","","","","","","","","","","","","","" "uuid:61a19716-a994-4942-9906-f680eb9952d6","http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:61a19716-a994-4942-9906-f680eb9952d6","Anwendung der Aehnlichkeitsmechanik und der Turbulenzforschung auf die Geschiebebewegung","Shields, A.","TU Delft","1936","Ph.D thesis of Shields, original version in German.
