To date no study has been done to analyse the effect on water level for the Dutch coast from the passage of storms over the North Sea. This research examines the feasibility of developing a joint probability method to determine the extreme water level for the Dutch coast, resulting from these storms. This has been done by means of a parametric...

Infragravity waves are a common feature in the nearshore wave field and have a significant impact on numerous coastal processes. It is therefore important to accurately predict infragravity wave conditions at a given location. However, analytical relations do not exist with which to make such predictions and one has to rely on numerical models....

As waves enter the surf-zone, the wave spectra undergo drastic transformations because of depth-induced breaking and triad interactions. Any arbitrary spectrum will converge towards a smooth, universal shape in which initially higher harmonic peaks emerge that disappear as wave propagate further into the surf-zone. The current formulation of...

Part I: On the time scales of wave processes. To systematically improve the SWAN model a study on the wave physics in a tidal inlet was carried out. The third-generation SWAN model was used to compute the wave processes in a tidal inlet for storm conditions. The computed wave processes are propagation (shoaling, refraction and frequency shifting...

Strong ocean currents such as the Agulhas Current near South-Africa are alleged to generate freak waves due to the enhancement of wave energy under counter-current conditions. It has been suggested that such enhancement is due to current-induced refraction but it is actually the result of a balance between many processes. To understand this...

The wave growth experiment in the Australian Lake George (Young and Verhagen, 1996a) is the first multiple-station depth-limited wave growth experiment and the dataset is probably the best that is available. The lake has a horizontal flat bottom with a depth of about 2 meters and is orientated north-south. There are however some discrepancies in...

Fort Bay harbour is a small harbour, located at the South of the island of Saba. This island is part of the Netherlands Antilles and it is situated in the Caribbean Sea where hurricanes may occur several times a year. Since its construction in 1972, Fort Bay harbour has experienced several hurricanes. Unfortunately some of these hurricanes were...

Nabij Enkhuizen is, in de Houtribdijk richting Lelystad, de Krabbersgatsluis gesitueerd. De aanwezigheid van deze schutsluis levert onaanvaardbare problemen op wat betreft de wachttijden voor het scheepvaartverkeer van het IJsselmeer naar het Markermeer en het wegverkeer van Lelystad naar Enkhuizen en vice-versa. De wachttijden voor het...

In the past years the SWAN wave model was developed. SWAN is a third-generation spectral wave model for applications in coastal areas. The verification of the model has been carried out for a few laboratory and field experiments. In this thesis the DELILAH field experiment held at the property of the Field Research Facility in Duck, North...

For the probability-based design and assesment of marine structures interacting with sea waves, a reliable knowledge of the long-term wave climate is required. Wave climate data are commonly presented in the form of histograms of spectral wave parameters. The severity of a sea state is usually expressed in terms of significant wave height H, and...

SWAN is a so called third-generation spectral wave model for applications in coastal areas. The existing model is still subject to further extensions. One of these extensions is a non-stationary option that makes the model suitable for use in large geographical areas. As part of the development of a non-stationary option of the SWAN model, tests...

Nadat een orkaanwaarschuwing voor het Caribisch gebied, waarin gelegen het eiland St. Eustatius, is afgegeven, vertrekken plezierjachten, cruise-schepen en vissersbootjes naar veilige gebieden, waardoor de haven van St. Eustatius geen functie heeft tijdens het passeren van een orkaan. In deze haalbaarheidsstudie is onderzocht of het mogelijk is...

Indian Power Projects Limited (IPPL) heeft het voornemen om een 2500 MW grote "Combined Cycle Gas Turbine" electriciteitscentrale te bouwen. De locatie van de electriciteitscentrale is gepland in het dorpje Vembar, in de provincie Tamil Nadu in Zuid-India. Ten behoeve van de gasvoorziening voor deze electriciteitscentrale zal Liquified Natural...

Recently, interest in vertical breakwaters has grown. The development of ports from natural small harbours to artificial large harbours facing the outer sea has demanded the construction of breakwaters in rougher seas. The vertical breakwater could play a role of importance in this development. To obtain general guidelines for the design of...

For an accurate description of the wave loading on an offshore structure, detailed knowledge of the wave-induced kinematics is a precondition. To fully describe the ocean environment is, however, a complex problem. First of all because of the fact that wave action is a random process. The second complication is wave directionality. With wave...

Voor wie in de offshore werkt vormen golven een bedreiging. Bij de installatie van boorplatforms bijvoorbeeld is het belangrijk een aantal dagen van tevoren te weten wat het golfklimaat en de weersomstandigheden zullen zijn op de plaats en het tijdstip waarop de installatie zal plaatsvinden. Voor aannemers die onderhoudswerk verrichten aan...

Because of recent measurements and the first results of new calculations on the sea dike of Petten, Noord-Holland, the question has risen whether or not the sea dikes along the Dutch coast are high enough. A criterion which indicates whether or not a dike is high enough is the level above NAP which is exceeded by 2 % of the uprunning waves under...
