The aims of this paper are: 1. To publish some available coastal measurements and computations of more than local importance. 2. To investigate the influence of groynes in practice. 3. To investigate the motion of the gullies in the outer deltas. The following conclusions are drawn: 1. The gross littoral drift along the Dutch coast is of the...

A laboratory experiment in a 180 degree curved flume with a mobile bed and suspended sediment transport is described. The flow is steady. The bed topography is measured by means of a profile indicator. The bed topography is characterized by a slowly damped oscillation of the transverse bed slope. Downstream of the bend entrance a pool and a...

Bed-levelling experiments are conducted in a straight laboratory channel. The experiments involve a significant fraction of suspended sediment transport. The purpose of the experiments is to provide data for modelling of the direction of sediment transport on a transverse sloping alluvial river bed, specifically in presence of suspended sediment...

A process-based model for the Yangtze Estuary is constructed to study the sediment transport in the estuary. The proposed model covers the entire tidal region of the estuary, the Hangzhou Bay and a large part of the adjacent sea. The dominant processes, fluvial and tidal, are included in the model. The calibration of the model against extensive...

The area of the Merwedes is a transition zone between a tide-dominated area and a river-dominated area. With increasing river discharge, the influence of river flow dominates in this part of the Rhine-Meuse Delta. The composition of the river bed of the Merwedes is also a transitional area, because of the presence of both sand and mud. It is...

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,...

In this thesis 6 wave climate reduction methods are described and evaluated. Of these methods, 3 are commonly used in literature and 3 are machine learning methods that are adjusted so that they can be used for the reduction of a wave climate. The evaluation is executed with the use of a Delft3D model of the coast of Durban, South Africa.

Whilst much attention has been given to models that describe wave, tide and sediment transport processes in sufficient detail to determine the local changes in bed level over a relatively detailed representation of the bathymetry, far less attention has been given to models that consider the problem at a much larger scale (e.g. that of...

The Ayeyarwady River is a river with large hydrological variations and an abundance of relatively fine non-cohesive sediment, causing the dynamic behaviour of the river with fast shifting channels. This dynamic behaviour, together with the large hydrological variations, is the source of a frequently flooding river with a moderate navigability....

Estuarine intertidal areas are shaped by combined astronomical and meteorological forces. This paper reveals the relative importance of tide, surge, wind, and waves for the flow and sediment transport on large intertidal shoals. Results of an intensive field campaign have been used to validate a numerical model of the Roggenplaat intertidal...
