Ruiter, Niels (author)
The influence of surface roughness and shape on the submerged floating tunnel is investigated in wave and current conditions. The hydraulic forces caused by varying tunnel shapes and roughness designs are measured and analyzed.

The submerged floating tunnel (SFT) is a conceptual idea that originates from the 19th century. The idea consists of a tunnel tube floating underwater where it is kept at a fixed depth by its buoyancy and by tethers that are anchored to the seabed and or by floating pontoons at the water surface. The tunnel is placed deep enough to avoid extreme...

The historic inner-cities in The Netherlands are largely known for their iconic channels and their accompanying quay walls, of which a significant number were constructed over 100 years ago. Due to the limited available space in the sub-surface of the urban environment, a high number of utility lines (i.e. potable water pipes and sewer systems)...

Amsterdam and many other cities consist of a network of old quay walls, which sometimes have been constructed over a century ago. A large uncertainty exists concerning the current safety of these quay walls and their remaining service lifetime. In the current framework for the assessment of old urban quay walls, the influence of timber creep in...

A submerged floating tunnel (SFT) can be a promising solution for crossing a deep or wide waterway. This tunnel concept will consist of an immersed tube, either attached with anchor cables to the seabed or attached to pontoons floating on the water surface. The reliability of the tether-stabilized SFT is assessed in this research. A suitable...

From the 3500 kilometers of primary flood defenses in the Netherlands, a third does not comply with the current standards. As a result, over 700 kilometers will be strengthened in the upcoming years. Traditional strengthening of dikes consists of strengthening with soil and requires space that is often not available. Further strengthening of...

At the Shonai River around Nagoya, Japan, several flood related problems occur. These problems occur at different locations, each with its own problems or limitations. The desired safety level as requested by the government is that the river should be able to have a discharge which has a probability of failure of once in 200 years. At many...

Floating bridges are found at locations where deep water must be crossed for a long distance, such as in Norwegian fjords. The superstructure of the existing floating bridges is usually constructed from steel. In a marine environment these bridges are exposed to dynamic wave loads. As such, the current floating bridges suffer severe damage due...
