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...

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...

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...

The offshore wind industry is a growing market in Europe due to the sustainable energy targets of European Union. In the coming years the Dutch government will invest in offshore wind farms at the North Sea. For a contractor like Boskalis the inclusion of favorable ecological conditions in designs is a unique selling point and can help to win...

Port locations are often selected to optimize access to land and navigable water. Many ports are therefore situated at the mouth of an estuary or along a coastline. Besides being economically important these locations are also often valuable from a biodiversity point of view. Human interventions along the coast such as port development often do...

In the winter of 2013-2014 the south of the UK (London, Oxford) experienced the heaviest rainfall since 1767. Evidence linking these kind of flood events to climate change has put pressure on the UK flood insurance system that is incapable of properly dealing with this kind of flood events. A proposed re-insurance system, FloodRe, is suggested...

Coastal erosion is a natural process caused by the actions of current and waves towards coastlines. Building with Nature (BwN), is an emerging methodology that utilizes natural process and natural materials to reduce the impacts of coastal erosion on nature and society. Because of the involvement of natural materials and natural processes, BwN...

South Africa has to cope with a varying freshwater supply. In doing so it has constructed over 500 dams that capture half of the countries annual rainfall. Despite this shortages do occur and are expected to become more prevalent due to a combination of population and economic growth and an increase in the variability in the freshwater supply....

The world population is growing. Together with the population, the need for resources is growing, as is the need for the transportation of these resources. A significant part is carried out through marine transport, directly relating to the increasing need for port development. All over the world, a shift increasingly occurs towards applying...

The Slufter is an estuary located in Texel’s North Sea dunes and protects the hinterland from flooding from the North Sea. As the multi actor environment and the diversity of values and functions associated with the Slufter are recognized, this research focuses on developing an approach for the district water board to broaden the knowledge base...

Climate change, population growth and increasing consumption patterns of water and increasing urbanisation are challenges and future uncertainties that place stress upon urban water infrastructures. These urban challenges, along with the complexities of asset-intensive systems and socio-economic structures, make the development of efficient long...

The provision of water and sanitation services to citizens living within the municipal boundaries is a struggle for the Sundays River Valley Municipality (SRVM), South Africa. In this municipality, the interrupted operation of the water distribution system has led to perceptions of systemic social injustice that are rooted in the apartheid on...

With the development of a process-based model (Delft3D) of the St Lucia Estuary inlet, a first approach is made with regard to the estuary mouth dynamics and closure mechanisms that are observed at St Lucia inlet. The purpose of this thesis is to get a better understanding of the hydrodynamic and morphological behaviour of the St Lucia inlet...

Ecosystem management has made a shift from protected area management to multiple use management area, where humans are viewed as an integral part of the ecosystem. In practice, however, finding the balance between maximizing short-term gains on the one hand and long-term sustainability on the other seems harder. In this thesis the practice of...
