Problem definition The city Mar del Plata has one of Argentina's largest ports and biggest seaside beach resort. After the construction of the port, a steadily growing sandbank appeared in the port entrance and considerable erosion occurred on the northern beaches. To warrant the accessibility of the port, frequent maintenance dredging is needed...

This study was completed to determine which location along the Buenos Aires coast is better suited for the development of a Marina port, taking into account physical, environmental and economic features. A literature review related to port development, dimensioning, and port/coast interaction was completed. It was defined that the most relevant...

Groins are old and intuitive means of reducing erosion and are found along the coast worldwide, although according to CEM (Coastal Engineering Manual 2003), “they are probably the most misused and improperly designed of all coastal structures”. The original purpose of groins was to reduce local erosion, that is, to hold the width of beach in...

Project SANDS To advance the mobile bed scaling laws and to test new instruments, identical tests are carried out on different scale levels in three hydraulic facilities; Hannover GWK Flume, Barcelona Flume and Delft Scheldt Flume. Data obtained in Hannover and Barcelona are not yet available. Focus is on the Delft data; on beach profile...

This study is part of the SAND PIT project, which objective is to develop reliable prediction techniques and guidelines to better understand, simulate, and predict the morphological behaviour of large-scale sand mining pits and the associated sand processes at the middle and lower shoreface as well as in the surrounding coastal zone. In this...

The coastal area is a busy area, many people live in these areas or use the coastal area for recreational purposes. The beach profile in the coastal area is continuously changing under the changing field conditions. These changes are induced by the changing sediment transports in the sea under changing field conditions. Several models have been...

Over the years, several computational morphological models have been developed that intend to describe the morphological changes in large coastal zones. Two formulae often used to calculate the sediment transport within these models are those of Bijker (1968) and Van Rijn (1993). These formulae often predict different sediment transport rates...

With the COAST3D measuring campaign at a site near the town of Egmond a valuable data set is available with detailed measurements. This data set is useful for analysis of hydrodynamic and morphodynamic processes present in the Egmond (double breaker bar) system. Extensive calibration and validation of numerical models as not only a dense spatial...

Coastal changes are often the result of changes in the sediment transport rates along a coast. For the prediction of coastal changes, it is therefore necessary to accurately compute the transport rates. For the computation of longshore transport rates, a number of models is available, for example the TRANSPOR model by Van Rijn [1993]. In most of...

This thesis presents the result of measurements of sediment concentration due to currents and irregular waves. The measurements were conducted from April to September 1999, in the 'Lange Speurwerk Goot', a large flume in the Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics. The goal of the experiments, which are part of the European Research Program SEDMOC, was to...

The main objective of this study is: investigation of the influence ofthe composition of the bed material on the composition of the suspended material at the reference level and on calculating the reference concentration, based on recent measurements. This objective was achieved by a study of literature, the investigation of data from six...

Computer models are commonly used to simulate the behaviour of the coast in response to natural processes (e.g. storms, extreme sea levels) or management plans (e.g. beach nourishment, channel dredging). The COAST3D project was initiated to improve and validate these numerical models. COAST3D stands for Coastal Study of ThreeDimensional Sand...

Coastal changes occur mostly as a result of changes in sediment transport along the coast. If at cross-section A, the sediment transport is for any reason larger (or smaller) than at cross-section B, accretion (or erosion) will take place in between the two cross-sections. For prediction of coast-lines in the future, the prediction of the net...

The present report contains a description of an experimental program, as a follow up of experiments by v.d. Kaaij and Nieuwjaar in 1986, and Nap and Van Kampen in 1987. As in the second study, in the present study a particle sand diameter of D50 = 100 mu was used, so that the experiments of Nap and Van Kampen will be referred as "the earlier 100...
