Abstract: For a design purpose, this study mainly focuses on the channel resistance with different spatial distribution of the vegetation patches. Even under the same blockage factor, the total patch numbers in the channel, the distance between two vegetation patches both in the lateral and longitudinal direction as well as the length ratio of...

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...

Despite several researches about the hydrological and hydrodynamic system of the Guayas region, elementary insight of the total system was lacking. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to create a general overview regarding floods. Besides, basic solutions are proposed for preparing Guayaquil against floods which might be present in the...

Bangladesh is characterised by its complex river system, which includes the downstream ends of two of the largest rivers in the world: the Ganges and Brahmaputra. Extremely variable flows and fast morphological changes are the principal characteristics of this system, which presents exceptional challenges for river engineering. Distributary...

The Mara River Basin (MRB) at the boundary of Kenya and Tanzania is one of the many river basins in the world that has to cope with increasing water scarcity. The MRB supports the world-renowned Maasai Mara National Reserve and Serengeti National Park, as well as growing numbers of farmers and pastoralists. Increasing water demand, deforestation...

The Guayas River estuary supports extensive socio-economic processes. It is formed at the confluence of the Babahoyo and Daule Rivers and runs for around 65 km before discharging into the Pacific Ocean. Its relevance within the national context is linked to the city of Guayaquil, the most populated city and commercial capital of Ecuador....

A hydrodynamic study shows high flow velocities at the IJsselkop bifurcation during the design discharge of 16,000 m3/s. The study, performed in 2005, concludes that these velocities might affect 1) the stability of IJssel river bed and 2) the stability of the grass cover layer of the flood plain at the bifurcation. This report provides a better...

The Belgian Meuse is a river with a relatively low flood risk. The floodplains are narrow, and the estimated impact is not large until the flood reaches a magnitude of a once in a 200 years event. Flooding along the Belgian Meuse could however have an effect on the flood safety in the Netherlands, since there the flood defences are dimensioned...

This study is about the effect of outer-delta bottom topographies adaptations on salt water intrusion in estuaries. An increase in salt water intrusion is considered as problematic in a lot of estuaries in the world. Various solutions are developed in the past to reduce salt water intrusion. These solutions have also negative side effects. An...

In the dimensional averaged numerical models, that are used for practicle purposes, there need to be accounted for three-dimensional processes. Amongst others a bank shear stress parameterization need to be incorperated. This master thesis focusses on the outer-bank shear stress in order to obtain a parameterization for the outer-bank shear...

All human life is dependent on fresh water and activities related to monitoring its availability have become crucial for financial and survival reasons. Most rivers are being constantly investigated today by both the private and public sector using various means. In advanced countries, the researches cover extensively the riverbed in order to...

A large part of the flood defences in The Netherlands does not meet the present safety standards. In 2014 the delta programme has proposed new safety standards, which are based on the flood risk approach. These new safety standards will for a lot of river dikes be stricter than the currently prevailing safety standards. A lot of work has to be...

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...

Controlling the distribution of water and sediment at river bifurcations is one of the main challenges in river engineering and management. This distribution affects the stability of river bifurcations as well as the distribution of flooding risk, navigability and environmental conditions. The governing factors are the hydrodynamics of the two...

The Mara River originates in Kenya in the Mau Escarpment and flows through the Serengeti ecosystem into Lake Victoria in Tanzania; in total it is about 395 km long. In this river, human interventions have led to increased of agricultural areas. As a result, increased fast runoff and top soil erosion is expected. Consequently, more sediments is...

Over the last centuries, Dutch rivers such as the Rhine have been heavily trained for the purpose of the safe discharge of water, sediment and ice, and navigability. After the notorious flood events of 1993 and 1995 along the Rhine, new large-scale river works were initiated, such as the Room for the River (RfR) programme, to increase flood...

Depth-averaged morphological computations using Delft3D tend to produce ‘strange’, results for river bends when the sediment transport formulas of Van Rijn are used. Even pools in inner bend regions and bars in outer bend regions can result from the model. The objective of the present thesis is to identify the cause of the problem and propose...

Design water levels are a basic concept in flood risk management practice. These water levels with a specified return period are used for the design of dikes and other flood protection measures along the river Meuse. Current practice is that these water levels are determined by hydrodynamic simulation of a standard design hydrograph at the...
