In the low-lying coastal regions coastal defense structures are usually designed with a main function to protect the hinterland from highly vulnerable of sea flooding. Sea dikes are usually the most common and important elements which form the coastal flood defense system. Sea dikes are designed at a pre-defined circumstance and requirement. For...

A new series of physical model tests were conducted to analyse the behaviour of a breakwater core when it becomes exposed to wave attack. The emphasis of this research was on the measured influence of a wide stone grading on both the deformation of a breakwater trunk and the occurring longshore transport. This behaviour was investigated for both...

A physical model study on the row averaged static and dynamic load on the bottom row of single layer armour units in order to investigate the influence of various parameters such as the number of rows on the slope of a breakwater and the initial relative packing density.

Wide crested dike can reduce the kinetic energy of the overtopping wave and make the overtopping wave to flow back to the seaside. If a coastal town were built on or near a dike, the overtopping wave running on the dike crest generates the force which can affect the buildings located in its path. However, quantifying the hydrodynamic load on the...

The scope of this research is to find an empirical formula to describe the distribution of wave overtopping in the region behind the crest. A physical model was set up in which irregular waves were generated. In order to find a formula which adequately describes the test observations, the influence of several parameters has been analysed. The...

Different layer design of a rock slope and under layers has a large effect on the strengths on the rock slope itself. In the stability formula developed of VAN DER MEER [1988] this effect is represented by the term Notional Permeability with symbol P. A more open, or permeable, structure underneath the armour layer has the ability to dissipate...

We study the nonlinear response of current transport in a superconducting diffusive nanowire between normal reservoirs. We demonstrate theoretically and experimentally the existence of two different superconducting states appearing when the wire is driven out of equilibrium by an applied bias, called the global and bimodal superconducting states...

Apart from many ecological advantages, mangroves in front of a coastal defence may lower the construction and maintenance costs of the defence. Although mangroves have hardly any reducing effect on water levels (and on tsunami impact) mangroves may significantly reduce wave attack on a coastal dike, and in this way reduce the cost of a revetment...

A revetment of pattern placed elements, or a so called pitching, is used worldwide to protect shorelines and embankments. Also in The Netherlands more than 500 km of river, lake and sea dikes is protected by pitchings. Until the 60’s the design and construction of pitchings was based on experience. After the first damages on pitchings and the...

Extensive laboratory experiments were carried out to investigate wave overtopping on seadikes with (vertical) crown-walls in Vietnam. It is shown that the wave overtopping reduction by walls is inadequately, although rather complexly, described by TAW-2002. A new approach has been developed, which can straightforwardly be incorporated in the...

The landware slopes of sea dikes in the north of Vietnam are steep and solely constructed by soil covered with grass due to the budget constraints and also the out-of-date design guidelines.The resistance against erosion due to wave overtopping of several grass covered slopes were tested with the Wave Overtopping Simulator to show if a slope...

The paper presents a short introduction to the mathematical theory of the EVT, the consecutive steps that are made in the software tool to address MI probability estimation and proof of range error distribution overbounding. Finally some early results obtained by GIMAT are presented.

One of the failure mechanisms of a rubble mound breakwater is the failure of its armour layer. In order to determine the stability of an armour layer, the design load has to be defined, which is in fact the wave that attacks the structure. Being a highly stochastic phenomenon, the wave action is not easily defined, while there is always some...

A key issue with GNSS carrier phase ambiguity resolution is that often the full set of ambiguities cannot be fixed fast and reliably. A possible strategy is then to resolve only a subset of ambiguities, one for which the probability of correct fixing, the so-called success rate, is sufficiently close to 1. However, a proper subset selection...

Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) is an interdisciplinary process by definition. Individual actors in CZM need to cooperate and communicate to come to an optimum management strategy for the coastal zone. Because engineers focus on finding the “best” solution in engineering terms, they often are quite surprised that in the end of the day...

The Simulator was applied to test the resistance against wave overtopping of grass covered dike slopes in Viet Nam. Observation and measurement during destructive tests were performed to investigate the development process of damage induced by overtopping flow. Damages were likely to be initiated at transition of either geometry or materials, at...

In de Van der Meer formulas for armour stability the Notional Permeability is used as a parameter. Unfortunately the physical basis of this parameter is weak. It is therefore suggested to use a relation between the Notional Permeability P and the reduction of wave run-up due to infiltration into the breakwater. The advantage is that the latter...

This paper presents the development of a semi-probabilistic method for armour layer design of rubble mound breakwaters, which is based on the use of safety factors. The objective is to introduce an approach that is both attractive to designers and sufficiently reliable when a high degree of uncertainty is involved in the design process. The main...

The resistance of various grassed slopes against wave overtopping has been appraised by means of the Wave Overtopping Simulator in situ for a couple of years in Viet Nam. Destructive test results show that a dike slope covered with grass could suffer a certain overtopping discharge not smaller than 20 l/s per m. During testing it was difficult...
