Platzek, F.W. (author)
A river engineer is challenged with the task of setting up an appropriate model for a certain application. The model needs to provide suitable answers to the questions asked (i.e. be effective) and needs to do this within the available time (i.e. be efficient). To set up such a model with sufficient accuracy and certainty, a modeller needs to...

The Pampanga and Angat River Delta, located on the northern side of the Manila Bay in a large alluvial plain, are regularly confronted with worsening fluvial and tidal floods. Subsidence rates up to 4.5 cm/year due to excessive groundwater extraction are the main cause of the worsening floods. Five measures are presented to reduce the floods: -...

Smit, P.B. (author)
Predicting the mean wave statistics in the nearshore, for instance the significant wave height, has predominantly been the domain of operational stochastic wave models based on the radiative transport (or energy balance) equation. Although reasonably successful in the nearshore, these models were originally developed for oceanic scales, and...

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...

Kleptsova, O. (author)
In this thesis a z?layer unstructured C-grid finite volume hydrostatic model is presented. An efficient and highly scalable implicit technique for the solution of the free surface equation is combined with an Eulerian approach for the advection of momentum. A consistent velocity reconstruc- tion procedure which not only satisfies the continuity...

This thesis has involved the development of an unstructured grid ocean model, H2Ocean, with accurate flooding and drying algorithms for tsunami studies. The research is co-funded by the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) in Bremerhaven, Germany, as part of their contribution to the German-Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System, which is installed...

After extensive flooding in 1953, Deltaworks were constructed to protect the Southwest delta in the Netherlands. In the Eastern Scheldt the connection to the North Sea was regulated by an open storm surge barrier and two compartment dams. These decreased the tidal volume and consequently tidal flats are eroding and disappear under water. The...

Two experiments are performed in order to investigate suspended sediment transport in a turbulent open channel flow. The first experiment used particle image velocimetry (PIV) to measure the fluid velocity with a high spatial resolution, while particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) was used to measure the velocity of individual sediment particles....

Rijnsdorp, D.P. (author)
Infragravity waves are a common feature in the nearshore wave field and have a significant impact on numerous coastal processes. It is therefore important to accurately predict infragravity wave conditions at a given location. However, analytical relations do not exist with which to make such predictions and one has to rely on numerical models....

The Ph.D. thesis “Large-scale turbulence structures in shallow separating flows” by Harmen Talstra is the result of a Ph.D. research project on large-scale shallow-flow turbulence, which has been performed in the Environmental Fluid Mechanics Laboratory at Delft University of Technology. The dynamics of quasi two-dimensional turbulence...

This project focuses on studying and modelling the flow in the sailing area of the 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition, located partly in Portland Harbour and partly in Weymouth Bay, in order to provide accurate and reliable current forecasts for the Dutch Olympic Sailing Team. From literature it follows that the main flow in the area is the tidal...

The focus is on the numerical flow model TRIWAQ. It is developed as a hydrostatic free-surface flow model, which is currently being used by the KNMI and Rijkswaterstaat for predictions of water levels in the North Sea and Dutch estuaries. TRIWAQ has successfully been extended to the realm of nonhydrostatic modeling, TRIWAQ-NH, this allows the...

This Master Thesis presents a numerical model analysis of the response of the Rhine ROFI on wind direction and speed. The aim of this study is to gain a further insight in the physical processes of the Rhine ROFI. Previous work on the Rhine ROFI focused mostly on tidal effects (straining and mixing) and inertial motions (earth rotation). Other...

Simoons, E. (author)
Singapore’s coastal waters are characterised by relatively complex tidal behaviour due to it’s location between two large oceans with different tidal regimes. This complex tidal behaviour results in poor understanding of the hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics. The hydrodynamics of the Johor River estuary, including part of the Singapore Strait...

Jacobs, R.P.M. (author)
The nearshore zone is an active zone that can be quite inhospitable to humans due to violent wave breaking and strong rip currents. Rip currents are shore normal jet-like currents that typically extend from near the shoreline out past the line of breaking waves. Observations have concluded that a rip current system generally consists of 4 parts....

The flow of water through a river bend can be characterized as a turbulent open-channel flow that is dominated by streamline curvature. In order to adequately manage the planimetry of meandering rivers and the according safety aspects, the features of the flow and the associated turbulence have to be understood well. This thesis presents results...
