In the past years, climate change has caused an increasing number of extreme weather events. In the Netherlands this is, for instance, reflected by the growing amount of extreme rainfall events. This creates big issues for water management authorities like water boards. Water boards are often responsible for local streams, that cannot handle the...

The Ayeyarwady River is the most important river in Myanmar, connecting the cities Mandalay and Yangon, making inland water transport economically attractive. The Ayeyarwady River has a dynamic character, caused by the significant discharge difference between the dry and rainy season, and the related suspended sediment transport. Point bar...

Rapid hydropower development is taking place in the Mekong river, which is expected to change the natural river regime. Because of the ecological and economical importance of the Mekong delta, the effects of these changes could have large consequences in the delta area. This research focuses on the hydrodynamical processes and assesses potential...

Worldwide, dam reservoirs loose over one percent of their storage capacity every year due to sedimentation. Proper management is therefore urgent. While drawdown flushing is considered an effective method to remove sediments from the reservoir, the increased sediment flux has an impact on the downstream environment. On the short term, several...

The use of rivers for navigation and the increased human activity along their banks generally requires river control and improvement measures. Most rivers have a natural tendency for continuous change of alignment, e.g. meandering and braiding rivers. Construction of bridges, towns, berths, etc. have required fixation of the river alignment at...

Vegetation on river banks and bars contribute to the stability of these morphological features; however, the exact processes that contribute to this stabilization are still subject to research. This study has looked into the flow phenomena at the streamwise interface between a vegetated and non-vegetated river bed. Flow velocities in vegetated...

The Ayeyarwady River (also called Irrawaddy River) is the most important river of Myanmar and due to the country’s rapid development it is expected to become even more important. The river flows roughly from north to south through Myanmar and is very dynamic and mostly unregulated. With a length of 2170 km and an over the year average (highly...
