Mangroves have proved to be an asset to coastlines owing to their various advantages in terms of coastal protection and stability. Along tropical coastlines, as mangrove tracts recede and threats of coastal erosion mount, mangrove rehabilitation projects are being seriously contemplated. The design of such projects, however, is in an incipient...

For this book we have deliberately chosen that the text should follow a more or less logical design procedure for breakwaters. It follows the required design steps from the system level down to the individual crosssection level, and in time from conceptual design to construction. This systematic approach starts at the functional description of...

This paper describes a unique design project devised to teach and apply technical skills in port design, but also in the practical cooperation between students in a realistic design project. The 4-week long project now involves students of up to 19 nationalities from 7-10 universities, and has been based each year on real design projects....

Grass covers have been applied as an effective measure for protecting river levees and sea dikes. We conducted experiments to show how roots considerably improve the shear strength of soil on dike slopes. Roots of 1-year-old Bermuda and Carpet grass may increase the total shear strength of up to 20 kPa. Exposed to severe overtopping flow, dike...

For this book we have deliberately chosen that the text should follow a more or less logical design procedure for closure dams. It is emphasized that only the construction aspect of stopping the water movement is considered in this book. This means that only the closing operation itself is treated; the transformation of the closing dam into a...

A new and symmetrical single layer armour unit, the crablock, has been designed in the UAE. One breakwater was reconstructed with crablock, but very limited testing had been performed. Just to become more acquainted with this new unit, pre-competitive research at a university has been performed, which is the subject of this paper. Being a new...

This paper presents the results of a systematic validation of numerical simulation of reflection and transmission of rubble-mound breakwater structures. The aim of the study is to provide a body of validation measurements for increasingly complex situations, starting simple and building up the comlexity in terms of breawater geometry, wave...

Quantifying the penetration depth of a dragging anchor on a horizontal layer of rockfill provides the possibility to optimize the layer thickness of rockfill layers with a protective function. Current research on this subject is limited and is often aimed at anchor capacities in sand and clay. Penetration behaviour in rockfill is mainly...

Sectoral professionals, like coastal engineers, need to know how to cooperate in a multi-disciplinary environment, as well as how to present substantial information to (political) decision makers. In order to train (coastal engineering) students in this matter, Unesco-IHE and TU Delft have in their curriculum an Integrated Coastal Zone...

Since 1977 dedicated studies are made to the stability of rubble mound break-water toes under wave attack. A large number of stability methods is available, but prediction accuracy is low and validity ranges are too small for use in prac-tice. In this research the decoupled model approach is used to evaluate predic-tion capacity of existing toe...

Little is known about the strength of the land-side slopes of the Vietnamese sea dikes under overtopping attack. Some grass-covered slopes were tested by a wave overtopping simulator. The paper describes the simulator and presents the test results. The tested grass covers could withstand overtopping rates varying from 20 l/s to 100 l/s per meter...

In physical model tests there is often a need of preventing stones from moving. This can be achieved by gluing the stones. Applying PBA (Polyurethane Bonded Agregate, e.g. Elastocoast) guarantees no moving stones, a normal permeability and a transportable model.

A more detailed understanding of porous flow inside a rubble-mound structure may have potential benefits in breakwater design. Numerical models are expected to be a useful additional research tool in this field, provided that their calculation results can be validated against measurements. This paper presents the results of a systematic effort...

The objective of this research is to obtain generic relations between attenuated wave heights and various vegetation and topographical scenarios. Subsequently, it is aimed to find out what is the actual cost profit of a dike construction behind a mangrove zone comparing to the case when mangroves are absent. The graphs and formulas developed in...

Many dike failures have been ignited by damage due to erosion on the landward slopes. This paper investigates how grass covered slopes perform when being attacked by overtopping flow during storm surges. Based on observations during a number of simulator tests, damage is classified into three types 'head-cut', 'roll-up' and 'collapse' depending...

For describing the relation between the grainsize and the nominal diameter (d50 vs. dn50) usually a factor 0.84 is used. This factor has been derived by Laan [1981] "De relatie tussen vorm en gewicht van breuksteen (the relation between shape and weight of pieces of rock), report MAW-R-81079". However, this original report cannot be retrieved...

Waves can be measured in several ways. One way of measuring waves is by measuring the wave pressure at a certain depth using a pressure sensor and calculate the wave information from the pressure record. The EMS wave logger uses a Honeywell MLH 050 PGP 06A pressure sensor. The information is stored by the logger on a SD card. The software in the...

When calculating the Carbon Footprint for a product or service, a direct link is made between the total amount of consumed energy and the produced amount of carbon dioxide during production. For that reason calculating the carbon footprint of various alternatives is a very straightforward method to compare energy consumption and more importantly...
