A literature survey which concerns a variety of wave generation and absorption methods was accomplished. The survey deals with the methods used for the experiment wave tank and numerical wave tank. Their implementations are also described very briefly. The numerical wave tank (NWT) was set up using the hybrid particle-mesh method with the...

Estuaries are complex systems that show a variety of hydrodynamic conditions. These conditions are influenced by bathymetry, geometry, climate characteristics, interacting fresh and salt water flows, and mixing effects caused by winds and wind-waves. The interaction between fresh and salt water flows in combination with mixing effects caused by...

Over the past centuries natural riverbanks have been transformed into banks with artificial revetments or sheet piles to protect them from erosion, which led to disappearance of important river features for flora and fauna. River restoration projects show that the removal of man-made bank protections may lead to the formation of bars (e.g. Van...

Closure dams are structures that are used to close off basins, usually from the sea. A sand closure is the construction of a closure dam made out of sand. During the last stage of a sand closure, there is a closure gap through which the tide forces a current with flow velocities up to five metres per second. The flow pattern that occurs during a...

As part of the Afsluitdijk project the discharge capacity, which is currently facilitated by two sluice complexes, is increased to cope with future sea level rise. It was decided to realise this by an innovative solution: the pump gate. The steel lifting gates, each containing three pumps, will be implemented in the existing sluice complex in...

Hybrid particle-mesh methods attempt to combine the advantages of Eulerian and Lagrangian methods: Lagrangian particles are used for the advection, whereas a Eulerian background grid is used for computing the particle interactions. Such a hybrid approach is expected to have several benefits when simulating flows involving free surfaces or...

Within Royal HaskoningDHV an innovative concept is thought to be feasible as a new foundation for larger wind turbines in deeper waters. In this thesis the development of this innovative offshore wind turbine foundation was aided. The research focused on two topics: - Scour at this gravity based foundations. - Possible design optimisations with...

The enormous damage caused by hurricane Ike in the year 2008 has been the main incentive for several structural flood risk reduction plans in the Houston-Galveston Bay area. One of them is the ’Ike Dike’, a large-scale coastal barrier which closes Galveston Bay to prevent penetration of hurricane surges. A momentum gain for flood risk reduction...

The rivers in the South-West of The Netherlands flow over an erosion-resistant bed, consisting of peat and clay, overlying non-cohesive sediments. As they are experiencing general incision, the erosion resistant layer becomes thinner and sometimes locally breaks, exposing the more easily eroded non-cohesive sediments. Consequently sudden scour...

In the region of the Riau Islands of Indonesia fresh water scarcity is one of the challenges the local community is facing. In order to increase the catchment of fresh water the choice is made to turn Bintan Bay, part of the Riau Islands, into a fresh water reservoir. Hereby collecting the fresh water runoff from local rivers. It is however...

The interaction between vegetation and the morphodynamics is considered to be an important process in salt marsh formation and succession. Therefore, the contribution of vegetation modelling on the long-term morphological development of salt marshes is assessed by implementing a vegetation growth model in the morphodynamic modelling software...

This study was aimed to develop a method for the rapid assessment method of the influence of intended bay developments on the bay’s flushing conditions. The study was focused on tidally dominated, small-scale, shallow water coastal bays. Because water is the carrier of (polluted) material, the exchange with the external water body, or flushing,...

Gravity based support structure By a joint venture of BAM and Van Oord an innovative type of Gravity Based Structure (GBS) for an offshore wind turbine was developed. The GBS consist of a concrete caisson and a steel shaft. The applicable water depth range is between 35 and 60m. Hydrodynamic loading on the shaft In order to optimize the support...

This study develops a theoretical framework to judge in which particular instances a two-dimensional depth-averaged model is sufficient to simulate flow processes in continental shelf seas or when a fully three-dimensional model is required for accurate results. A depth-averaged model does not give any vertical information, which is unfortunate...

A Horizontal-axis tidal current turbine (HATT) is a device that converts tidal energy into electrical power. The HATT uses the tidal current to generate electricity. There are plans to implement HATTs on a commercial scale in tidal farms similar to wind-turbine farms. However, experience with prototype farm arrangements in the field is lacking....

Introduction Bow thrusters are of great help for the navigation at quay walls, but the high and turbulent velocities can result in a bed load exceeding the strength of the bed or bed protection. To be able to design a stable bed the velocities at the bed need to be accurately determined. In design practise the velocities generated by a propeller...

At the construction of 'Maasvlakte 2' in 2012, two sand closures were constructed. Sand is in most cases the most profiting construction material. The processes and the amount of sand losses which occur during the construction of a closure contain large uncertainties. In order to construct a closure, the production of sand has to be larger than...

More than five years after Hurricane Ike devastated the Galveston Bay Area, the most critical challenge remains; reducing flood vulnerability. In response to Hurricane Ike’s disastrous impact, several structural flood risk reduction strategies have been proposed. Some advocating local solutions, others advocating system-wide coastal barriers....

Flood protection of the land around an estuary has been important for the Netherlands since the floodings of 1953. There are several types of possible solutions. For example; levee heightening, construction of a dam or a storm surge barrier. All these solutions have certain disadvantages, like costs or environmental impact. Another option is a...
