Due to the increase of global containerized trade and container vessel sizes, the necessity of container terminal development is unavoidable. On the other hand, designing a container terminal is a very complex process, and on a concept design phase, a quick assessment for the design alternatives should be done in a limited time, cost, and effort...

The accessibility of a port, which is mainly determined by the available water depth, is of economic importance for a port to distinguish itself from other ports. For the vertical design of navigation channels, the goal is to make routes equally accessible and not have bottlenecks; to have an optimal maintenance program and not incur unnecessary...

In order to increase safety and efficiency at sea the International Maritime Organization decided in 2000 that all sea going vessels were to implement Automatic Identification Systems (AIS). AIS is an automatic tracking system which broadcasts static and dynamic information about the vessel. Even though AIS was not initially designed for...

The inland waterways are an important part of the freight transport system of the Netherlands. In the coming years, a lot of maintenance and construction works are needed to keep the network operational. This can temporarily impact the availability of the waterways section which can have negative effects on the performance of inland vessels and...

This research focuses on the impact of extreme low river discharges, meaning discharges below 1200 m2/s at Lobith. In 2018 extreme low river discharges in the river Rhine led to congestions in the main Dutch part, called the river Waal. The river Waal is an important river for inland navigation, but during low discharges the...

Moored vessels in harbours around the world are affected by waves penetrating into the port basin. Hydraulic conditions can lead to severe vessel motions that influence the (un)loading efficiency and can even lead to the failure of fenders and mooring lines, creating unsafe situations for operating staff and <br/>A DMA is a chain of numerical...

Climate change &amp; sea-level rise<br/>It is well-known that the Netherlands is susceptible for sea-level rise. Half of the country is situated below sea level and in an estuary. Previous measures of the Dutch against the threat of inundation have resulted in the closure of estuary branches, decrease in the length of primal flood defences and...

In this study, the behaviour of fine sediment in settlings basins has been investigated. The understanding and prediction of return water quality assessments is improved by a comparative modelling study. Settling basins are required to decrease the exhaust of fine sediment particles when dredging and reclaiming land. Fine sediment particles can...

The main objective of this thesis is to increase the understanding of the effect of shellfish presence on the stability of loose rock revetments and to investigate the possibilities in the design. Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) and blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) presence on loose rock revetments was quantified. C. gigas and M. edulis are...

This study investigates wave driven onshore sandbar migration. Observations show that sandbars move onshore during mild wave conditions. Literature describes different potential sediment mechanisms that cause this onshore migration, but the dominant cause is still under debate. The goal of the present study is to determine the dominant sediment...

Coastal regions change continuously due to natural processes. Human activities in coastal regions require a steady environment. Usually the dredging industry is contacted for coastal maintenance. Knowledge about the time development of sediment volume changes in specific regions is necessary for risk assessment in contracting. Nearly a century...

This study has as main objective to `make recommendations for improvement of the objective evaluation of the effectiveness of the Sand Engine'. The Frame of Reference methodology, a tool developed by Van Koningsveld (2003), is used to map the evaluation of effectiveness. This approach is used descriptively as well as prescriptively. A...

By its very nature dredging is an environmental impact, since dredging includes the excavation and/or relocation of sediment in a river, sea or estuary. One of the environmental impacts related to dredging is increased suspended sediment concentration (SSC) levels, forming plumes of sediment. These so called dredge plumes originate from spillage...

Dredge plumes and ecology have become increasingly intertwined in recent history; one of the more prominent reasons behind this is the influence of clouds of fine sediments released in the open water due to dredging (`dredge plumes') on for `sensitive receivers' such as coral, seagrass and mangroves. An Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA) in...

Becker, J.H. (author)
Nowadays, the ecological effects of dredge plumes are usually managed based on the precautionary principle. Predictions of suspended sediment levels are made, which have to be compared to thresholds set by the responsible authority. Failing to comply may cause a project to be delayed and thus lead to additional costs. The precautionary principle...

The environmental impacts caused by suspended sediments are an important issue in the environmental impact assessment (EIA) of dredging and reclamation projects. This thesis is restricted to provide insight into the emission of suspended sediment particles due to the release of return water. This water is used to pump dredged material to the...

In September and October of the year 2009, three sandgroyne nourishments have been executed at the Delfland Coast near the village of Ter Heijde. The nourishments have been executed to restore the sediment buffer in the upper part of the coastal profile. A sandgroyne is a concentrated amount of sediment (200.000m3) artificially nourished from...

Dune evolution on natural and nourished beaches on an engineering timescale is not well understood. Using a study of both literature, and data which has been gathered of the Dutch coast, a new hypothesis regarding the causes of variability in dune evolution is proposed. Following this hypothesis assumptions are made on the basis of which a...

This thesis concentrates on the autonomous behaviour of the breaker bars in front of the Holland coast in the period 1965-2006. The breaker bars in front of the Holland coast show a seaward movement, starting small at the waterline, growing during their seaward motion and dying out at deeper water. A typical profile in front of the Holland coast...
