In this study loading characteristics of rubble mound breakwater crown walls are investigated. This is done using a 2D physical model, testing for overall stability (through sliding) and temporal & spatial distributions of pressure along the face and base of the crown wall. A variety of wave conditions and geometries is used, with special...

For the use of open filters in land reclamations new guidelines are needed as no research is currently done for the configuration of a sand layer is placed on top of a filter layer. This research focuses purely on the interaction between cyclic motions and the described sand-filter layer. A numerical OpenFOAM model is used to extract the order...

The design of offshore and coastal infrastructures, sand nourishment and other ’soft’ coastal interventions require the analysis of environmental variables (e.g. wind, waves, rainfall) that can potentially cause the failure of such structures. Processes such as overtopping, beach erosion, and coastal flooding can result from a combined action of...

A combination of the growth of the offshore wind energy sector and the decline in both species richness and species abundance in the North Sea has inspired the goal to use the scour protection in wind farms as a means to enhance marine life. Present research has focused on general changes which are to be applied to benefit marine life. However,...

In the present study the stability of crown wall elements on top of a rubble mound breakwaters is investigated. The first step was conducting a literature review, in order to identify knowledge gaps. It was found that current design methods do not take the freeboard of the crown wall into account when calculating the vertical force acting on it....
