Large-scale river projects are executed on the Dutch rivers to meet increased flood conveyance standards. Because the projects bring variation to the standardised river profile, they are expected to induce increased river dynamics. The consequences are higher dredging costs and more disruption to inland navigation. All river intervention plans...

Local geometrical perturbations in alluvial channels can generate a pattern of alternate bars. Each bar is accompanied by a pool at the other side of the channel. This pool can decrease the strength of the bank, which can result in bank failure and bars can hinder navigation. Furthermore, non-migrating alternate bars are considered to be a...

Due to the closure of the Haringvliet in 1970 as part of the Delta works and the opening of the Beerdam in 1997, the course of the tidal flow in the Rhine-Meuse delta has changed. The tidal flow from and towards the Haringvliet is now completely taking place through the branches that connect the Haringvliet with the Nieuwe Maas and Nieuwe...

The flood of the Koshi River in 2008 is the motive to execute this study. This flood is described as one of enormous proportions, a disaster which severely influenced the life of hundred thousands of people in Nepal and millions of people in India. This study investigates the natural aggradation of the river system and the influence of the...

The Colombian government aims to establish a connection that bridges the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. The new connection will largely take place on the current Atrato River, which has not yet been upgraded for a more extensive use of navigation in the near future. A bottleneck in the river is the delta area. Without structural dredging...

The Atrato River in Colombia should be navigable for bigger vessels when generating a corridor which should link the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific Ocean. A likely segment of the river that forms a critical point for navigation is the point of bifurcation where the river is divided in the Montaño and Murindó branch. Both branches should be...

The Langmann reservoir is part of the hydropower system in the river Teigitsch and in the reservoir loss of storage volume occurs. The reservoir was therefore flushed, but recently no permission is granted. The reason is the high sediment concentrations that have negative effects on the downstream region. An optimization of the flushing...

The wetlands in the Mississippi delta (USA) are drastically subsiding and eroding. Many projects and researches are ongoing to determine how this “drowning effect” of the delta can be stopped. One of the solutions that could be feasible is implementing sediment diversions in the levees of the Lower Mississippi River in order to divert sediment...

Rijkswaterstaat is responsible for maintaining the fairway of the river Waal for navigation for more than a hundred years. In the past problem areas, which cause hindrance for navigation and block the fairway, were prevented with structural measures. Dredging was used as a last resort. In 2005 the desired fairway depth was increased from BRV -2...

The area of the Merwedes is a transition zone between a tide-dominated area and a river-dominated area. With increasing river discharge, the influence of river flow dominates in this part of the Rhine-Meuse Delta. The composition of the river bed of the Merwedes is also a transitional area, because of the presence of both sand and mud. It is...

Hydraulic structures are present in the designs of different Room for the River projects in the Netherlands. Examples are longitudinal weirs, groins, summer dikes and weirs in the inlet of a side channel. Morphological simulations with Delft3D are frequently carried out to investigate the effect of such projects on for example hindrance for...

For a proper management of rivers and river bends in particular, it is important to have good models to predict the flows through bends. It is important that those developed models are well validated with measurements to demonstrate the usefulness of the models. This research is a validation of the Delft3D-FLOW model which is a model that is...

In 2000 the Dutch government chose a new point of view for the Dutch rivers: “Room for the River”. This viewpoint is the basis for a new approach of high water protection in the Netherlands. Instead of strengthening and raising the dikes, solutions must be based on space and spatial quality. One of the suggested measures is the addition of...

The Colorado River in the Grand Canyon area has a lot of sandbars but they are eroding. Since the building of the Glen Canyon Dam and the Hoover Dam in the 1960s, sediment is trapped in the upstream lake. The inflow of water is clear, cold and nearly sediment free. The only noticeable remaining inflow of sediment in the Colorado River is by two...

Bed degradation in a number of Dutch river branches, like the Bovenrijn, can cause various problems in the near future. At low waters the navigation depth at the non-erodible layer near Emmerich can become too small. Other problems could be lower ground water levels and stability of structures in and near the river, like groynes. To diminish...

inland transportation of goods. The artificial fairway channel provides entrance to the port of Paramaribo and Paranam. The motivation for this thesis project is the intention of lowering the fairway channel to increase the navigable depth, to create a cost-effective fairway for the bauxite and alumina transport activities. To obtain the...

A promising new method for measuring sediment properties in the field is called MEDUSA RhoC. This device measures mud and sand content, sediment density, and water content in the field using Radiometric Sedimentology. The aim of this thesis is to investigate the accuracy and applicability of the MEDUSA RhoC system with its new components. This...

To predict the changes of natural systems like estuaries and tidal lagoons as a consequence of human interferences often numerical models are applied. An important aspect is the erosion and transport of sediment. Therefore, these models require formulations that describe the erosion of the sediment bed consisting of sand, mud and organic matter....

Om in de toekomst de veiligheid rondom de Nederlandse rivieren tegen overstromen te waarborgen heeft het kabinet het standpunt "Ruimte voor de Rivier" ingenomen. Hierin staat beschreven dat in 2015 een pakket aan maatregelen ervoor moet zorgen dat een maatgevende Rijnafvoer van 16.000 m³/s binnen de gestelde veiligheidsnormen moet kunnen worden...
