van Meurs, Tom (author)
The Houtribdijk is a dike intersecting the IJsselmeer and Markermeer, and is partly reinforced by the construction of sandy shores. The sand eliminates the wave loads before they can reach the levee. Making use of sandy shores as flood protection in a freshwater lake environment is unique. The main goal of this thesis was to find the causes of...

Duong, T.M. (author)
The coastal zones in the vicinity of tidal inlets, which are commonly utilized for navigation, sand mining, waterfront developments, fishing and recreation, are under particularly high population pressure. The intensive population concentration and excessive natural resources exploitation in these areas could lead to biodiversity loss,...

Rip currents are among the most dangerous coastal hazards for the bathing public, and contribute to the highest portion of beach rescues all over the world. In order to help life guards in planning and preparing rescue resources so as to minimize casualties, information about where and when rip currents may occur is needed. This can be provided...

Natural headland sand bypassing: Towards identifying and modelling the mechanisms and processes contributes to the understanding of the mechanisms and processes of sand bypassing in artificial and non-artificial coastal environments through a numerical modelling study. Sand bypassing processes in general are a relevant but poorly understood...

This study presented in this book investigates micro- and macro- scale physical processes of a large-scale fine sediment estuarine system with a moderate tidal range as well as a highly seasonal-varying freshwater inflow. Based on a series measured, experimented and modeled results, the research highlights that (i) along-channel fresh-salt...

Attema, Y.H. (author)
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...

Guo, L.C. (author)
Estuarine morphodynamics are of broad importance to estuaries’ functions related to navigation, human settlement and ecosystems. Inspired by the Yangtze River estuary (YRE), this study aims to explore the impact of river discharge, tides and their interaction on long-term estuarine morphodynamics. Use is made of 1D and 2D process-based models....

Recently an unstructured version of Delft3D, named D-Flow FM, has been developed at Deltares. This tool shows high potentials for coastal modelling due to the flexibility in domain resolution and unstructured grids. This MSc thesis focussed on implementing wave effects in D-Flow FM with satisfying results. In addition, a coupling system is built...

Dastgheib, A. (author)
The morphology of tidal basins includes a wide range of features developing along different spatial and temporal scales. Examples are shoals, channels, banks, dunes and ripples. Coastal engineers use their engineering tools to answer questions on the processes governing the short term (< decades) development of these morphological features....

Ye, Q. (author)
This thesis presents the development a generic morphological model for both structured and unstructured grid and the extension to a biogeomorphological model. For the morphological model, numerical algorithms are adjusted to adapt unstructured grid and are validated against analytical solutions and flume experiments. For the bio-geomorphological...

Dissanayake, P.K. (author)
This dissertation qualitatively investigates the morphodynamic response of a large inlet system to IPCC projected relative sea level rise (RSLR). Adopted numerical approach (Delft3D) used a highly schematised model domain analogous to the Ameland inlet in the Dutch Wadden Sea. Predicted inlet evolution indicated the typical channel/shoal pattern...

De Zeeuw, R.C. (author)
Artificial beach and foreshore nourishments, as executed widely along the Dutch coast, change the nearshore morphology and current patterns significantly. Over the last decades the size of the nourishments has increased from 0.7 x 106 m3/km to over 6 x 106 m3/km. Groynes which were present along the southern Holland coast since the 19th century...

Blossier, B. (author)
A large number of beach morphologies across the world exhibits nearshore sandbars with complex 3D patterns. During large storms, these shapes disappear and the bars get to a certain extent alongshore uniform. This phenomenon is called a reset. Numerous studies have been conducted on the development of the bar shapes (3D) or on the cross-shore...

Muller, M.C. (author)
This thesis presents the application of an aeolian transport model used in desert environments [Sauermann et al., 2001, Kroy et al., 2002] as a tool for the evolution of coastal nourishments. This study will try to investigate the driving processes in the model and adapt or extend the model application to the coastal system. If we want to apply...

Daly, C.J. (author)
It has been found by many researchers that low frequency (LF) waves dominate the wave energy spectrum in very shallow water. Given that many longshore and cross-shore morphological processes are located within this zone, LF waves play an important role in determining morphological change, especially dune erosion and overwash during storm events....

Lesser, G.R. (author)
This thesis presents the development and validation of a novel three-dimensional sediment transport and morphological numerical model suitable for coastal regions. The thesis discusses the modelling of both suspended and bed-load transport of non-cohesive sediment, important aspects of the morphological updating scheme, and approaches used to...

The reshaping of temporary rubble mounds like the core of breakwaters or reclamation bunds is often a concern for contractorsi n the construction stages of marine structures. The formulas found in literature for the prediction of such behavior are few, and they do not provide clear insight on the influence of relevant parameters, in particular...

This thesis is an exploratory research into the maintenance of the Slijkgat, by analysing the morphological behaviour of the Slijkgat and the Haringvliet. The Slijkgat is the approach channel for the fishery harbour of Stellendam. The delta area west of the Haringvliet Dam started to accrete after the construction of the dam around 1970,...

The primary objective of this thesis is to generate a 2DH-numerical model to simulate dune overwash. The first stage in this is achieved by modifying the program code of an existing overwash model in development, XBeach, to enable 2DH calculations. In the second stage the hydrodynamics of the model are verified using theoretical and laboratory...
