Momentarily the determination of the static stability of rock on mild slopes can be split in roughly two paths, the empirical and the physical approach. However, both the approaches have their limitations from which one could conclude that neither approach is currently an accurate description of the stability of rock on mild slopes under wave...

Wave climate in harbours determines for a significant part the efficiency of harbour operations. A good prediction of the hydrodynamics is therefore regarded as indispensable, which is often done by means of advanced numerical modelling. This study is a part of the Joint Industry Project XBeach. The goal of this research is to determine the...

This study describes the stability of rock on a mild slope (e.g. milder than 1:6) under wave loading. This is done because an increasing number of situations occur where mild foreshores are protected from the wave and currents. The empirical stability formula, designed by VAN DER MEER [1988], is not valid for these kind of slopes. Nonetheless,...

All over the world rubble mound breakwaters are built to protect harbours, shorelines, and other vulnerable coastal areas against wave action and currents. Most of the designs for these structures use so called deterministic or semi-probabilistic design methods (level I). With these methods insight in the uncertainties, and consequently the...

Many breakwater projects start with the selection phase which consists of the consideration of alternatives. These breakwaters are required to protect ports, banks and habitat areas from significant wave action. Moreover, upcoming Design & Construct contracts drive contractors to perform the consideration of alternatives and design themselves....

Breakwaters with single layer concrete armour are very commonly applied nowadays. Much research is available on the stability of single layer armour units on the seaward slope. However, rear slopes design methods for single layer armour units are rare. On rear side slopes usually similar sized units as on the seaward slope are applied. Limited...

A recurrent challenge in the hydraulic engineering is to establish the required stone diameter for a stone protection on mild slopes, since the stability of gravel on a mild slope is not yet sufficiently covered by existing design methods. The objective of this study is to investigate the relation between the loads and the stability of stones on...

The protection of breakwater structures is in this research considered. The design of rubble mound concrete armour layers for breakwaters can be divided in a single layer system and a double layer system. The single layer system is nowadays mostly applied because of the high interlocking, high stability of the structure, reduction of concrete...

The Afsluitdijk is unable to withstand the future conditions that belong to an annual probability of occurrence of 1/10 000 per year for water level and wave conditions. Solution of Rijkswaterstaat is to strengthen the dike according to the principle of the wave overtopping resilient dike (NL: Overslagbestendige dijk). Therefore the Afsluitdijk...

As the traditional demand-driven construction industry is currently changing, several trends point in the direction of an alternative construction industry that is supply driven. A supply-driven construction industry implies a radical change from a responsive pull market to a proactive push market. Since a supply-driven construction industry has...
