In 2016 bracht de Raad voor de Leefomgeving en Infrastructuur (RLI) het rapport ‘Mainports voorbij’ uit (RLI, 2016). In het rapport wordt gesteld dat de twee belangrijkste ‘mainports ’, de haven van Rotterdam en Schiphol Amsterdam, in tegenstelling tot wat ze zelf en vele anderen beweerden, niet de ‘motoren’ zijn van de Nederlandse economie....

ABSTRACTWhile reliability methods have already been widely adopted in civil engineering, the efficiency and robustness of finite element-based reliability assessments of quay walls are still fairly low. In this paper, the reliability indices of structural and geotechnical failure modes of two real-life quay walls are determined by coupling...

Port cities face enormous sustainability challenges. In this chapter, we propose a relational view of these challenges, exploring how governance tries to connect the three pillars of sustainable development—economic, social, and environmental—and addresses the contradictions inherent to new port plans or waterfront projects. We zoom in on the...

Globalization and subsequent increase in seaborne trade have necessitated efficient planning and management of world's anchorage areas. These areas serve as a temporary stay area for commercial vessels for various reasons such as waiting for passage or port, fuel services, and bad weather conditions. The research question we consider in this...

Despite availability of a large amount of observational data and modelling studies, the mechanisms maintaining the Turbidity Maximum in the Belgian-Dutch coastal zone around the port of Zeebrugge (Belgium) are insufficiently understood. In order to better understand the dynamics of this turbidity maximum we examine the role of baroclinic ...

Historical paths matter in port-city regions. Here, spatial patterns and governance arrangements are path dependent to the point that once certain paths have been established, these become hard to change. This defines a condition of institutional inertia that plays a significant role in preventing any form of spatial change. Naples is an...

Purpose: Fluid mud layers can be substantial in waterways and they can jeopardise navigation when the ship’s keel comes in its vicinity. The nautical bottom has therefore to be properly characterised. Mud density and yield stress are used as criteria to characterise the nautical bottom. For a decade, measuring these parameters in situ has...

Every year about 300 million tons of plastic is produced, resulting in more than five trillion plastic particles currently floating in the oceans five largest convergence zones. The Ocean Cleanup is testing a method to passively collect this floating plastic debris, transport, recycle, process and sell it. The purpose of this paper is to...

European container ports compete in partially overlapping hinterland areas. The objective of this study is to model port choice and obtain insight into port choice decisions for European container imports from Asia. The importance of port choice factors and their impact on port market shares in the hinterland were investigated. Furthermore,...

Multi-frequency multibeam backscatter (BS) has indicated, in particular for fine sediments, the potential for increasing the discrimination between different seabed environments. Fine sediments are expected to have a varying signal penetration within the frequency range of modern multibeam echosounders (MBESs). Therefore, it is unknown to...

Tsunamis, impulse waves, and dam-break waves are rare but catastrophic events, associated with casualties and damage to infrastructures. An adequate description of these waves is vital to assure human safety and to generate resilient structures. Furthermore, a specific building geometry with openings, such as windows and doors, reduces wave...

Purpose: The microbial turnover of sediment organic matter (OM) in ports and waterways impacts water quality, sonic depth finding and presumably also rheological properties as well as greenhouse gas emissions, especially if organic carbon is released as methane. As a consequence, sediment management practices as a whole are affected. This...

This chapter explores two structural aspects of port-city interaction. First, it studies the evolution of planning policies on post-industrial waterfront spaces in the Netherlands before and after the 2008 financial crisis, focusing on the former shipbuilding company Rotterdamsche Droogdok Maatschappij (RDM). The RDM site in Rotterdam is a...

Modal shift from road haulage to short sea shipping (SSS) has been advocated by authorities and researchers for more than two decades. This paper provides a review of literature on modal shift and pinpoints paths for future research on topics in six categories: (1) factors influencing SSS competitiveness, (2) the policy-oriented perspective, ...

The refrigerated (or ‘reefer’) container market grows rapidly. Researchers and sector stakeholders increasingly realize that this container market segment has its distinct dynamics and demands. This article provides a comprehensive overview of the reefer container sector, its most important characteristics and trends, and a systematic review of...

China's continuous and rapid economic growth has led to the reclamation of large sections of the intertidal mud coast in combination with port construction, such as that of the proposed Tongzhou Bay port on the Jiangsu coast. These reclamations threaten the local ecosystem services. An ecotope distribution map was created and a hydrodynamic...

Autonomous shipping refers to the ability of a ship to independently control its own actions while transporting cargo from one port to another, which places higher requirements on ship motion control methods. When a ship enters a port, it is important to ensure that the ship sails from the fairway area to the assigned position at the berth...

This PhD thesis investigates V2V, V2I, and I2I cooperation of CMVSs for improving the safety and efficiency of waterborne transport. A predictive motion control framework and a generic negotiation framework are proposed to achieve consensus among controllers. Different applications provide insights into the impact of CMVSs on the performance of...
