In the past humans used to protect their shores mainly with rocks. In the past decades the shore protections did gently shift to concrete element protections. An example of an often applied concrete armour unit is the Xbloc. This element is quite strong and well investigated. BAM Infraconsult has developed a uniformly placed armor unit, the...

Zeeland, located in the south west of The Netherlands, has suffered major casualties and damage due to the flood in 1953. After the disaster, the Dutch Government appointed the so-called Deltacomittee, provided with the task of advising on the execution of the Deltaplan. As part of the Deltaplan, North Sea estuaries has been closed off from the...

In this MSc thesis it is investigated how the first version of concrete armour unit Xbloc<sup>+</sup>, Xbloc<sup>+ v1</sup>, acquires its stability. The stability mechanisms are investigated by conducting two type of physical model tests. First, 23 dry pull-out tests are done to obtain insights into the aspects and mechanisms that influence the...

In recent years, the use of Xbloc units has increased exponentially. However, the placement of this unit is not always done as randomly as it should be and consequently, the stability of the armor is affected. In order to overcome this problem, Delta Marine Consultants is developing a new armor unit called Xbloc+ that has a regular placement. In...

Nowadays, the use of concrete armour units on rubble mound breakwaters designs has become a common practice. Concrete armour units can be placed in a single layer system or in a double layer system and can its placement can be either random or uniform. Recently, Delta Marine Consultants have designed a new armour unit called Xbloc+. This new...

The breakwaters of IJmuiden are of a unique design; a riprap core is covered with a thick impermeable asphalt slab. During construction and after completion, slope instability caused extensive damage. Placement of a concrete cube armour layer prevented further damage to the asphalt, but proved to be unstable and required a significant amount of...

The purpose of this thesis was to develop a preliminary concept design of a wave energy converter. The type of device designed was limited by several starting points which stipulated, among other criteria, a robust structure which can be constructed within a breakwater and can generate electricity from a fairly mild (in the order of Hs=0.5-1.5m)...

This Masters Thesis is a pilot research project in order to investigate which parameters, other than the wave energy density spectrum, could play a role in breakwater damage on variable foreshore steepness. The research project is based up on laboratory research, were for equal wave spectra at the toe of a coastal structure significantly more...
