van Marrewijk, Jaap (author)
The objective of this research is to gather more information about a possible relation between the slope angle of a rubble mound breakwater and the wave overtopping at this breakwater. The following research question is covered in this thesis: What is the influence of the slope angle of rubble mound breakwaters on wave overtopping? To answer...

The impact of climate change, particularly the rise in sea levels, obstructs the effectiveness of existing coastal structures. Additionally, climate change can also have an amplifying effect on wind speeds (Takagi & Esteban, 2013). Without proper control, the accumulation of changing environmental boundary conditions could lead to disastrous...

Breakwaters are built in coastal zones to alter sediment transport, or protect threatened habitats and port facilities. The rising sea level is causing more water to overtop these structures. Increasing amounts of overtopping discharge can compromise the security of people, or equipment standing on the crest of breakwaters. The overtopping flow...

Due to the rising sea level in combination with land subsidence there is a need to reinforce the dikes. The use of a crest element to increase the height of the dike is an effective and relatively cheap way to reinforce the dikes (Hogeveen, 2021). When a crest element is used, the jet generated by wave breaking on the dike slope impacts on the...

Teng, Djimin (author)
If sea level rises faster than anticipated in the initial design of rubble mound breakwaters, a serious threat is posed to their functionality. To limit wave overtopping, breakwaters must be adapted to the rising sea level and subsequent increase in wave loading due to reduced depth-induced wave breaking. However, the...

In this research, the influence of the permeability and the porosity of artificial reefs on wave transmission and the sheltered habitat of marine life is investigated. A physical model is used to find the answer to this question. <br/>The main finding of this research is that a hollow, perforated structure can act both as an artificial reef that...

Climate change affects sea level rise and the safety of the people living behind seadikes. In order to prepare for this, several adaptation measures are available to reduce the overtopping discharge. Wave overtopping can be reduced by including roughness elements or adding a berm. Another possibility is to employ crest elements such as a...

The objective of this master thesis is to investigate experimentally how non-breaking wave loading affects the stability of the MOSES artificial reefs, an artificial reef by the company ReefSystems. Small scale wave flume tests with a length scale factor of 20 were conducted in the Scheldt flume at Deltares in Delft to determine the stability of...

Living breakwaters are designed to protect the coast against flooding and erosion, whilst at the same time they enhance the local ecological system by incorporating natural reef components. This study investigates the design of a modular artificial reef developed by the company called Reefy. Reefy breakwaters will consist of interlocking blocks...

Hogeveen, Kevin (author)
Rubble mound structures are often constructed to prevent severe wave damage to ships. By constructing the crest at a certain level, the waves are reduced such that safety is ensured. However, a large increase in sea level rise is expected in the next century due to climate change. Because of this, multiple adaptations might be necessary to meet...

Over time, degradation processes might cause damage to pattern-placed revetments. Examples of such damages are missing elements, deformation, and the loss of joint filling. However, little is known about the exact consequences of those damages. Therefore, when damage is observed during an inspection, it is estimated based upon experience what...

Prototype single layer armour units on a breakwater slope are observed to break. To predict when breakage occurs, the objective of this research project is to obtain knowledge on, and measurements of the rocking behaviour and failure mode of single layer armour units. A single cube on a breakwater slope is subjected to investigations. An...

Breakwaters with single layer concrete armour are very commonly applied nowadays. Much research is available on the stability of single layer armour units on the seaward slope. However, rear slopes design methods for single layer armour units are rare. On rear side slopes usually similar sized units as on the seaward slope are applied. Limited...

Wave fields in the close vicinity of a coastal structure can be very complex, this is especially the case during extreme storm conditions and for complex geometries. There is a growing interest for numerical simulation tools capable of predicting in detail the complex hydrodynamic loads due to waves and currents and its effect at structures. In...

Dijkstra, O.P.J. (author)
In coastal regions where the land is sensitive to erosion, but also for harbours and ports, numerous types of defensive structures have been developed to protect it from the effects of incident waves. More recently breakwaters have been constructed which combine the stability characteristics of a conventional two-layered uniform sloped...

The main objective of this research was to assess the impact of different placement methods, with different packing densities, on the stability of double layered Antifer-block armour layers. This was done by experimental research in the wave-flume of the Fluid mechanics laboratory of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Delft...

Wave transmission is often an important criterion in the design of a low-crested breakwater structure and influences early decisions on the type of structure and the applied construction material. In design stages classical formulae are used to predict the wave transmission coefficient Kt [-], but these formulae still show a considerable scatter...

Steeds vaker wordt in geval van waterkerende of golfbrekende of golfhoogte reducerende constructies gekozen voor een caisson constructie uitgevoerd welke vaak is uitgevoerd met een verticale wand. Daardoor is onderzoek noodzakelijk naar de hydraulische randvoorwaarden om de constructies zo optimaal mogelijk te kunnen ontwerpen en bouwen. Wanneer...

Door de jaren heen is er veel onderzoek gedaan naar golfbrekers en de stabiliteit van de 'armour layer'. Hieruit is gebleken dat de plaatsingsdichtheid van de 'armour layer' elementen een belangrijke parameter is. De doelstelling van dit onderzoek is om inzicht te verkrijgen in de invloed van de plaatsingsdichtheid op de stabiliteit van kubussen...
