The Falsterbo Peninsula is a low-lying area that provides a home to 7,000 residents, as well as various bird and vegetation species. To protect this densely populated area, the municipality was granted a permit to build flood protections. As part of the strategy, the dune system in the study area will be used as natural barriers against storm...

In the field of offshore engineering, subsea rock installation has emerged as a pivotal technique. As offshore operations extend to greater water depths, the deployment of a versatile fallpipe has become a cornerstone for precise rock particle placement. A comprehensive determination of the overall rock material volume required for installation...

Wave overtopping of coastal structures is generally expressed in terms of average discharge and maximum overtopping volume. While substantial research can be found on the relationship of such variables with incident spectral characteristics and other geometrical dimensions, limited research has been done to identify the conditions for which...

Crownwalls are often placed on top of vertical composite breakwaters to reduce overtopping. Adding a seawards facing overhang at the top of crownwalls has successfully reduced overtopping even further without increasing the freeboard of the crownwall. Crownwalls with a fully curved (FC) face are most often used in seawalls where they are...

During ‘float-out’ installation of export cables, the cable is pulled to shore while floating, supported by inflatable floaters. Understanding the hydrodynamic behaviour of these cable-floater-systems (CFS’s) is important, to be able to relate the hydraulic environment to the cable stresses and determine the maximum allowed hydraulic conditions...

Understanding the factors that drive extreme water levels is key to an accurate assessment of flood hazard. The city of Venice has always been affected by flooding due to extreme water levels. In this study, we examine the factors driving and influencing extreme water levels in the Venice lagoon, aiming at deriving accurate extreme water level...

Breakwaters used to protect harbours and coastal areas worldwide are one of the most common coastal structures. The complexity of the physical processes associated with the design has led to the development of many empirical formulas while a standardized method for the selection of breakwaters’ design parameters in the EU does not yet exist. The...

The purpose of this report is to design a wave energy converter, in particular a U-oscillating water column (U-OWC), to maximize energy conversion in the low wave energy environment of Gwadar, Pakistan. At present Pakistan’s 1000km coastline is largely undeveloped and the county is devoid of any wave energy harnessing devices or studies. However...

The authorities of the Port of Genoa have requested the construction of a new vertical breakwater for the Sampierdarena canal, as well as the subsequent demolition of part of the existing breakwater. The reason for this project is the need to expand the size of the canal, to allow larger vessels to safely use it. A choice is made for a vertical...

Wave overtopping, in which a wave washes over the crest of a dike and damages its inner slope, is one of the many mechanisms that is found to be responsible for dike failures. As these dikes are generally covered with grass, insight into the erosion resistance of these grass covers against wave overtopping is desired. To assess the performance...

Living breakwaters are designed to protect the coast against flooding and erosion, whilst at the same time they enhance the local ecological system by incorporating natural reef components. This study investigates the design of a modular artificial reef developed by the company called Reefy. Reefy breakwaters will consist of interlocking blocks...

Irias Mata, Marisol (author)
The design of hydraulic structures like breakwaters and crest walls is often based on empirical formulations, physical models test, numerical models and a fair amount of expert judgement. Each technique has its own pros and cons. The main limitation of the empirical formulas is that often they have to be applied outside their range of validity....

Flooding has been a serious risk to the old-town of Venice, its residents and cultural heritage and continues to be a challenge in future. Despite this existence-defining condition, limited scientific knowledge on flood hazard and flood damage modelling of the old-town of Venice is available to support decisions to mitigate existing and future...

At the moment, the world is at the verge of an energy transition. One of the most promising green resources is solar energy, which is a rapidly growing market. However, to fully use its potential of economy of scale, the application of offshore floating solar should be explored. A promising option is the use of a flexible type of Very Large...

Offshore and coastal infrastructure must be designed to withstand loading conditions that among others arise from extreme environmental conditions. Physical processes such as storm surges, tides, currents, and waves play an important role in the design of these structures. Several variables characterize the relevant physical processes (e.g....

Lighthouses have guided seafarers for centuries and still play an essential role in navigating marine vessels and bringing them to safe harbours. With climate change, the already harsh ocean environment may become more severe. It is expected that future wave conditions can compromise the structural integrity of the lighthouses with their violent...

This work studies crownwalls with a fully curved face versus a vertical wall in non-breaking wave conditions. Its aim is to provide appropriate tools that can be used to compare the performance of the two structures in terms of loading and overtopping. To this end, small scaled experiments of the two structures are carried in a flume with a flat...

The Oscillating Water Column (OWC) device is one of many available technologies for generating electricity from water waves. It is a caisson-like structure, which houses a water column in an enclosed chamber with an inlet at the bottom. Waves enter the device, exciting the water column. The trapped air above is forced out through a turbine,...

In this research OpenFOAM is used to model and determine the complex hydrodynamic behaviour of a Homogeneous low-crested structure (HLCS) consisting of cubipod artificial concrete elements. The validated model is used to gain insight in the design sensitivities of a two dimensional cross sectional layout to reduce sea wall overtopping. HLCS and...

Hydraulic structures can be prone to impulsive wave impact, which is a highly stochastic and uncertain process. This type of impact, defined by extreme pressure peaks and a very short duration, is not only caused by breaking waves, but also by non-breaking standing waves on structures with an overhang, such as culverts and steel gates. In this...
