This thesis examines the effects of the stratified tidal flow on the morphodynamics of the Dutch inner shelf. The south portion of the Dutch inner shelf is strongly influenced by the Rhine River ROFI (Region Of Freshwater Influence), which is generated by the discharge from the Rhine River through the Rotterdam waterways. Under stratified...

Estuaries are important ecosystems accommodating a large variety of living species. Estuaries are also important to people by their demand of freshwater for drinking, irrigation, and industry. Due to natural changes and human activities, the estuarine water quality, influenced by both salinity and turbidity (the cloudiness or haziness of water),...

This thesis explores the nature of aeolian sediment availability and its influence on aeolian sediment transport. The aim is to improve large scale and long term aeolian sediment transport estimates in (nourished) coastal environments. The generally poor performance of aeolian sediment transport models with respect to measurements in coastal...

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...

Tidal flat landscape formation and evolution are closely related to the biotic and abiotic processes that take place in the intertidal environments. Extensive studies have been carried out on the relevant agents such as hydrodynamics, sediment transport and the related ecosystem (vegetation and benthic communities) dynamics. However, the...

Over the years, Lake Markermeer, formerly a sea arm of the North Sea, has experienced a decline in some of its ecological values. A high suspended sediment concentration in the water column of the lake is believed to be one of the causes of this ecological deterioration. Currently, short term suspended sediment dynamics are well understood. This...

Hyperconcentrated flow/flood is a water-driven sediment transport phenomenon, which is characterized by high sediment concentrations between normal sediment-laden flow and debris/mud flow. In a hyperconcentrated flow, strong interactions exist between water flow, sediment, and river bed, which may not only change the flow rheological properties,...

Alluvial open channel beds often exhibit statistically periodic irregularities, known as dunes. 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...

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...

Two experiments are performed in order to investigate suspended sediment transport in a turbulent open channel flow. The first experiment used particle image velocimetry (PIV) to measure the fluid velocity with a high spatial resolution, while particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) was used to measure the velocity of individual sediment particles....

In this thesis, the particle model that takes into account the short term correlation behaviour of pollutants dispersion has been developed. An efficient particle model for sediment transport has been developed. We have modified the existing particle model by adding extra equations for the suspension using a probabilistic concepts (the Poisson...

Fernandez Luque, R. (author)
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...

The quantitative determination of bed-material-transport by means of tracers has been considered. For a stationary-stochastical transport-condition the dispersion of tracers has been described by a diffusion-equation of the gradienttype. The parameters of the dispersion-model are derived from the measured concentrations by a least-squares...

Riad, K. (author)
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...
