Projections are that Rotterdam, one of the worlds' largest harbours, will be in need of 1250 hectares of additional harbour area within the next 15 years. To meet this demand a substantial land reclamation ("Maasvlakte-2") is considered, which could provide 1000 hectares of new harbour areas and 750 hectares for nature and recreation. In...

The first results are presented from a quantitative model describing the aerosol production in the surf zone. A comparison is made with aerosol produced in the surf zone as measured during EOPACE experiments in La Jolla and Monterey. The surf aerosol production was derived from aerosol concentration gradients measured downwind from the surf zone...

The present paper describes an analysis of the morphological integrityof the multiple channel system (MCS) of the Western Scheldt estuary. The tidal flats and surrounding ebb and flood channels form morphological cells, and the entire MCS can be schematized as a chain of such cells. The major ebb and flood channels have lost their one time...

Threshold of motion of coarse particles under regular shoaling waves is studied. Experiments were performed to investigate the effects of bed fluid acceleration on coarse particle stability. By varying wave height, wave period and water depth combinations of similar peak orbital velocities and weak to strong intra-wave accelerations were created...

For management of coastal breaching hazards it is critical to be able to assess the potential of coastal barrier breaching as a result of wave actions during storm surges (wave overwash). This phenomenon is known as the breach initiation phase; the mechanisms behind this are not very well understood. In the present study, laboratory experiments...

In many areas around the world, there is a large interest in the protection and restoration of aquatic vegetation, like eelgrass (Zostera marina), but little is known about the interaction of such vegetation with its environment. To improve this knowledge, a model has been developed that simulates this interaction between highly flexible...

Thuan An is a tidal inlet located in Vietnam in a tropical monsoon area. The inlet is very dynamic and variable under the influences of not only tides and waves from the sea but also flows and floods from upstream rivers. Therefore, morphodynamic behaviour of the inlet is very complicated and not well understood. Studies on inlet are also facing...

Under effects of tropical cyclones, the coast is subjected to attack both by surge and wave from the sea and by flooding from the bay. These forces pose a serious breaching threat to natural sea-defence works such as barrier spits, barrier islands, lagoon barriers, etc. on the coast. Unintended breaching can be catastrophic, causing losses of...

The current research is aimed at finding a dimensionless stability parameter for non-uniform flow in which the effect of turbulence is incorporated. To this end, experiments were carried out in which both the bed response (quantified by a dimensionless entrainment rate) and the flow field (velocity and turbulence intensity distributions) are...

The influence of river flood on the coastal inlet morphology is investigated with the aid of process based state-of-the-art numerical models. Hydrodynamics of tidal inlets during a severe flood situation and behavior of the inlets are described and explained.

Morphodynamics of a tidal inlet system on a micro-tidal coast in a tropical monsoon influenced region is modelled and discussed. Influences of river flow and wave climate on the inlet morphology are investigated with the aid of process-based state-of-the-art numerical models. Seasonal and episodic behaviour of the inlet system under the...

The current research is aimed at finding a proper relation between flow forces acting on the bed and the bed response. To this end, experiments were carried out in which both the bed response (quantified by a dimensionless entrainment rate) and the flow field (velocity and turbulence intensity distributions) are measured. The three available...

The velocity and turbulence distributions of decelerating open-channel flow in a gradual expansion were measured using LDV equipment. The results show that the logarithmic law can describe the mean velocity in the bottom region well while the Coles’ law can be applied to the outer region. The shear velocity can be determined both by the...

The current research is aimed at evaluating the applicability of a numerical flow model to predict bed damage. First, an experimental study was carried out to get more inside into the relation between flow forces acting on a bed and the bed response (damage). The experiments were then used as the basis for the evaluation. Second, the flow was...

The objective of this paper is to demonstrate the use of Stereo Photogrammetry (SP) measuring ship-generated waves and to determine under which conditions they are suitable for surfing. A physical experiment is conducted to gain insight in ship wave behavior under specific conditions. Waves are generated by a hull and are measured using SP. It...

Scale relations are necessary to choose proper sediment for physical models. The use of lightweight artificial sediment makes it possible to preserve the Reynolds number, Shields number and relative settling velocity altogether. There is also the possibility to preserve the Shields number in combination with the Dean number which would be more...
