In this study, the excavation process of a low pressure vertical impinging jet in cohesive soil has been investigated. Mass flow excavation is a hydraulic, low pressure, subsea excavation method whereby a large volume flow is applied to the seabed through which the seabed is eroded, and the soil is transported. <br/>The erosion process of a...

Landslides are destructive and recurrent natural disasters that cost annually significant social and economic losses all over the world. These events can be induced by natural factors as earthquakes and extreme rainfall, as well as by human intervention, including construction and mining. A primary resource to conduct landslides studies for...

In the face of climate change, urban stormwater management practices are subject to an uncertain context. More frequent and extreme rainfall events are expected in many urban areas. The extent how climate change will affect weather patterns is however uncertain. This challenges contemporary stormwater management practices. A post-disaster...

Due to often existing subsea infrastructure or challenging seabed conditions, engineers are forced to design newnearshore pipeline trajectories that are not always in a straight line. Since subsea tie-in operations are often complex and relatively expensive, alternative methods like pulling pipelines into a curve are worthwhile. By means of this...

Bioswales contribute to climate resilience, as they positively impact the urban water infrastructure by improving the water balance and water quality. However, current bioretention design ignores the facts that different designs in different soils and climatic locations produce different performance results.<br/>The effect of polder conditions...

The thesis presents a numerical study on dredging induced undrained instability and subsequent static liquefaction of submarine landslides. For the study, a pre-existing hydro-dynamic uncoupled submarine slope numerical model, developed by Molenkamp (1999), has been modified to incorporate a fully hydro-dynamic coupled interaction between...

Almost four million people in the Netherlands who live below sea level are protected by 17000 km of dikes against the water. Since deformation can be an indicator of a developing failure mechanism, information about this parameter can help authorities to detect weak spots in the dutch water defense structures. <br/>In this research, Radar...

Offshore wind has achieved many milestones considering this relatively new and emerging industry. Its huge advancement is mostly driven by lowering the overall project cost and renewable energy targets which are set by the EU. One of the potential cost savers can be found in the foundation structure design in which the monopiles are the most...

PLAXIS study of a primary flood defence in the Netherlands. The influence of water level, precipitation, and wave overtopping on the position of the phreatic surface is being investigated. The hydraulic loads are applied to a clay dike with a cracked top layer and a sand dike with a cracked clay cover. The findings are related to the current...

The static liquefaction tank (SL-tank) is a unique large-scale facility that provides a means to simulate the conditions of a submerged soil slope under failure conditions. Static liquefaction (SL) may be defined as a significant loss of soil’s shear strength due to a substantial development of excess pore water pressure under monotonic loads....
