Building with Nature (BwN) is a relatively novel way of thinking for flood protection. Unlike traditional flood protection solutions that are poised to bring forces of nature to a halt, the BwN’s philosophy is to use natural dynamic processes for engineering advantage as a protection against natural disasters and events. Yet, the BwN design...

A growing risk of flooding in coastal areas and the corresponding development of legislation drive continuous development in the field of hydraulic engineering. Failure due to<br/>wave overtopping is not fully understood from a physical point of view. Existing knowledge gaps, processes that are not yet explained by physics or not even discovered...

In the past humans used to protect their shores mainly with rocks. In the past decades the shore protections did gently shift to concrete element protections. An example of an often applied concrete armour unit is the Xbloc. This element is quite strong and well investigated. BAM Infraconsult has developed a uniformly placed armor unit, the...

Seagrass meadows are essential and valuable to many shallow coastal ecosystems, due to the many important ecosystem services they provide. The interaction of feedbacks between hydrodynamics, sediment dynamics, and eelgrass can be described with a feedback loop. At locations where eelgrass is present, it favours its growth by modifying the local...

Introduction and Problem Description: The autonomous nearshore morphodynamics along the Nags Head shoreline are characterized by consistent erosional behavior. The use of shoreface nourishments to counteract this erosion along shorelines has received considerable attention in the past, having the advantage of reduced cost compared to beach...

A mega-feeder nourishment is a concentrated nourishment that disperses over time due to wind, waves, and tide, and as a result ‘feeds’ its adjacent coasts. During the design phase of a nourishment, performance indicators can enable an objective comparison of a mega-feeder nourishment to alternative nourishment strategies, In the case of an...

Wind energy from the North Sea is one of the solutions to achieve the climate goals of the Paris agreement. The Dogger Bank, a North Sea sandbank, has a lot of potential for wind energy due to the relatively shallow location and good wind conditions. An artificial island creates even more opportunities, because alternating energy can be...

This thesis explores the nature of coastal dune behavior and the role of sediment supply in the aeolian system. The first part of the thesis conducts a data analysis based on the Dutch JARKUS dataset, which provides yearly measured profiles along the Dutch coast. A series of parameters derived from the profile measurements have been used to...

The St Lucia Estuary is Africa’s largest estuarine system and part of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, which was listed as South Africa’s first World Heritage Site in December 1999. The St Lucia Estuary is connected upstream to Lake St Lucia and downstream it flows into the Indian Ocean. The St Lucia Estuary is located at a wave dominated coast...

This thesis entitled “Compaction of Silty Sands through Biogenic Gas Desaturation Pretreatment” investigates a method to improve compactibility of an initially fully saturated soil body bringing it to a saturation corresponding to the optimum water content of the targeted soil layer. The process comprises<br/>two stages: a reaction phase to...

Numerical process-based morphodynamic models are widespread in coastal engineering practice and have become the new standard when it comes to assessing the impact of natural or man-made structures on coastal environments. The most common practice among engineers is to focus on a single spatial and time scale, which means either neglecting...

As extensive efforts from consumer drone manufacturers resulted in inexpensive aircrafts that can capture high quality video imagery, drones are increasingly considered to be beneficial for scientific purposes. In the recent past, video imagery has been used to analyze waves in terms of several hydrodynamic parameters and to indicate matching...

Contemporary mono-functional flood defense solutions are no longer accepted, as they tend to not take their surrounding system into account. Today’s solutions require sustainability, multi-functionality and different stakeholders want to be heard. <br/><br/>One of the concepts that offers an alternative approach is the concept of Building with...
