Developments in the wind industry reveal intricate engineering challenges, one of them being the erosion on the leading edge of the wind turbine blades. In this review work, the main issues for the wind industry in the experimentation with respect to erosion are examined. After a historical and general overview of erosion, this review focuses...

The Demak coastal area faces severe erosion problems. The main cause of the erosion of the coastline, which is at some places as high as 1.5 km of land, is the deforestation of the green belt of mangroves for the purpose of building fishponds. This has disturbed the delicate sediment balance in the area drastically. The BioManCO project aims to...

In large braided rivers, river training is often required to protect the banks against erosion, to improve navigability and for land reclamation. Closing one of the channels is a promising option to achieve these goals. However, there is a lack of systematic research on channel closures and no guidelines for their use exist. In the few...

Fluvial and coastal dikes are the primary protection for human life from natural hazards like flooding or wave action. To build these hydraulic earthworks requires many materials with specific performances in terms of workability, mechanical strength, permeability, resistance to erosion, etc. Very often, local material does not meet requirements...

Backward erosion piping is an important failure mechanism for water-retaining structures, a phenomenon that results in the formation of shallow pipes at the interface of a sandy or silty foundation and a cohesive cover layer. Although the pipe depth reveals a lot of information on the backward erosion process, it has never been measured...

Dam filters are mainly designed using filter criteria based on the grain size distribution. The main design criteria against which performance is assessed are a criterion for retention of fine particles. The characteristic size of finer fraction influences the size distribution of the filter pore and hence the retention capacity of flowing...

Over the last three decades the beach area of Piçarras has undergone large changes. The river Piçarras was fixed which caused severe erosion problems. With large nourishment projects the municipality tried to create a sustainable beach area. However, these nourishments did not form a long term solution, which means that, until the present day,...

The stability of subaqueous slopes is often studied to determine the probability of failure of hydraulic structures. Slope failures have been widely studied to increase the understanding of this complex failure mechanism. However, after a failure it is often hard to figure out the type of failure mechanism: static liquefaction or breach flow....

This paper discusses the dynamics of coastal policy change in Sweden, using erosion and beach nourishments as an example. The Multiple Stream Model is a theoretical model on agenda setting and policy change developed by the political scientist John Kingdon (1984, 2003). This paper applies Kingdon’s model in describing and explaining coastal...

The development of realistic numerical tools to efficiently model the response of concrete structures subjected to close-in detonations and high velocity impacts has been one of the major quests in defense research. Under these loading conditions, quasi-brittle materials undergo a multitude of failure (damage) mechanisms. Dynamic tensile failure...

The Tam Giang-Cau Hai lagoon system, lying in the Thua Thien-Hue province in central Vietnam, is affected by a tropical monsoon climate. This among others is the reason the Cau Hai Lagoon area has a long history of floods and other water related problems. Inhabitants are very dependent on the lagoon, as the main sources of income of people...

Population growth in the Blue Nile Basin has led to fast land-use changes from forest to agricultural land, which resulted in speeding up the soil erosion processes producing highly negative impacts on the local soil fertility and agricultural productivity. The eroded sediment is transported downstream by water and sinks in the lower basin where...

Schoen, J.J. (author)
Pipelines and cables on the sea bottom are usually protected by a cover of dumped rock. In case of maintenance or removal works, this cover has to be removed in order to expose the pipeline. This removal can be performed by means of a mass flow excavation process, created with a submerged jet flow. However, the exact erosion processes of a...

How to, a landscape architect, design with coastal natural processes? Coastal areas have stronger and more fluctuating natural variables than many sites in more sheltered areas. Understanding the past, present, and future form of these processes will allow the designer to shape a form and program that works with the site-specific...

Sand dikes have a sand core and a clay layer to protect the core against erosion. It is not unlikely that this layer fails due to several failure mechanisms, exposing the sand core to water. This can be catastrophically when water is overtopping the dike. In case the protective cover fails, water can flow over the core and erode the sand,...

A large part of the Vietnamese population is living close to the coast. The sea is an essential source for supporting lives. Coastal flooding, on the other hand, threatens the people, land and infrastructures every year. Some hundreds years ago, the first sea dikes were built in Thai Binh and Nam Dinh provinces. In the north, the coastline is...

The Afsluitdijk is unable to withstand the future conditions that belong to an annual probability of occurrence of 1/10 000 per year for water level and wave conditions. Solution of Rijkswaterstaat is to strengthen the dike according to the principle of the wave overtopping resilient dike (NL: Overslagbestendige dijk). Therefore the Afsluitdijk...

Embankment breaching is a composite process coupled by hydraulic processes and sediment transport processes. Erosion is the link in the interaction between breach flow and embankment material. Surface erosion starts in the initial breach phase and triggers the initial damage of the embankment. As the surface erosion develops completely, the...

Within the framework of WTI, Research and Development of Flood Defence Assessment Tools (Wettelijk Toetsinstrumentarium), which is called in Dutch: WTI-2017 "Onderzoek en ontwikkeling landelijk toetsinstrumentarium", research was carried out to develop an erosion model for grass in the wave run-up zone consistent with the current model in use...
