XBeach is a process-based morphological model that has been used for modelling short term behaviour of beaches and dunes. In the past years interest has been shown by researchers and engineers to use XBeach for longer simulation periods (multiple years). XBeach has multiple modules: stationary mode is often used during calm conditions and...

Morphodynamic models are widespread in coastal engineering practice and indispensable to predict the effectiveness of (large-scale) sandy interventions. These models enable quantification of the effects on enhanced safety against flooding and on environmental impact over time, based on physical processes such as hydrodynamics and sediment...

The Rhine ROFI ( region of freshwater influence) is a dynamic area where various processes and timescales come together. Research has shown that stratification caused by the freshwater outflow of the Rhine alters the tidal currents in front of the Dutch coast. In the case of the Netherlands the tide behaves like a kelvin wave, which causes...

The use of the detached offshore submerged breakwater (SBW) for coastal protection has an increasing popularity due to its low aesthetic impact on the natural environment. Submerged breakwaters however have only rarely been adopted and therefore its efficacy remains largely unknown (Ranasinghe et al. 2010). Shoreline erosion has been reported in...

This research investigates approaches to conduct an efficient sensitivity analysis of wave forcing in coastal erosion studies. For this three speed-accuracy trade-offs have been assessed: (i) between the use of a simple and a complex model, (ii) between the use of several methods for conducting a sensitivity analysis, and (iii) between the use...

The Sand Motor is a unique and dynamic solution for coastal erosion, aimed at distributing the nourished sand along the Delfland coast. Besides enhancing coastal protection, the Sand Motor has been designed to also provide opportunities for recreation and nature development. The contributions of ecosystems to human well-being, that arise from...

Relative sea level rise and climate change, but also the migration of the growing world population to the coast, continuously increase the pressure on the coastal system. In combination with the increased awareness for sustainability, the interests in the coastal zone become integrated and complex. Integrated Coastal ZoneManagement (ICZM)...

Maintenance dredging, as a result of port and channel sedimentation, can have a large share in overall maintenance costs of a port. A smart design can minimize the amount of maintenance dredging and thus improve the profitability of a port but also the long-term sustainability. As the preliminary design stages are often decisive for the final...

This study has as main objective to `make recommendations for improvement of the objective evaluation of the effectiveness of the Sand Engine'. The Frame of Reference methodology, a tool developed by Van Koningsveld (2003), is used to map the evaluation of effectiveness. This approach is used descriptively as well as prescriptively. A...

Durban is located on the east coast of South Africa in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. It is one of South Africa’s biggest cities and has one of the busiest ports in Africa. To maintain Durban’s current economic position the Durban Port has to expand, which is problematic due to a lack of space. A solution is to develop a completely new port: the...

In 2011 the Sand Motor was realised at the coast of the province of South-Holland as a pilot project combining different functions such as safety, recreation and nature development, following the philosophy of Building with Nature. The idea was to create a mega nourishment that would supply the coastal system between Hook of Holland and...

Recently an innovative nourishment method has been applied as a counter measure for coastal recession in the Netherlands. This soft engineering solution, also known as the Sand Engine, consists of a shoreline perturbation of $21.5$ Mm\textsuperscript{3} sand which will be redistributed along the shore by the natural forces of waves, tides and...

The aim of this research was to develop an interdisciplinary framework suitable for engineering purposes that connects natural processes such as wave propagation, aeolian transport, oxidation process or chemical reactions with associated critical measurable (a)biotic parameters like a rip current, beach width, canopy height density, salinity...

Recently, nourishments have been carried out on a large scale to counteract the on-going erosion along the Dutch Coast. The main advantage of these large beach extensions is that large stretches of coastline are protected for a long time scale (e.g. 20 years), which decreases the frequency of nourishing significantly. This is not only cost...

The Santo André Lagoon is one of many inlets and lagoons that can be found along the along the Atlantic coast of Portugal. These coastal systems have a large ecological value and are important for rich biodiversity. The Santo André Lagoon is part of a natural reserve that is officially under protection of the country. It has a rich flora and...

An offshore terminal is proposed to be constructed adjacent to the entrance of an Estuary in the Niger Delta. A dredged approach channel of around 10 km long, 250 m wide and to a depth of -14 m LAT is required to allow ships to reach the terminal. From earlier research it is found that high transport rates of fine sediment, in the order of 10...

A large-scale nourishment known as the Sand Motor has been implemented along the Dutch coast as a Building with Nature solution designed for the upcoming 20 years. Given the long-term period of the project, a combination of in situ measurements and remote sensing techniques are currently in use. An X-band radar system is deployed at the Sand...

After decades of coastal erosion in the north-west area of the Island of Texel, the shore-normal `Eierlandse Dam` had been built in 1995. The dam, situated in the outer delta of the Eierlandse Gat tidal inlet, resulted in a remarkable short-term morphological development of the adjacent coast. Four years following completion of the dam, large...
