In many coastal engineering problems the application of coastal structures to resolve these problems seems to be a proper solution. In a lot of cases, however, the implementation of coastal structures does not lead to the expected situation. Erosion management operations may have unwanted impacts on a coastal system. Decisions on the most...

Introduction Dong Lam Cement Factory is developing a new clinker plant in Thua Thien-Hue Province, Vietnam. The clinker has to be exported towards Ho Chi Minh City, where it is grinded into cement and used for the construction industry. For the clinker production coal is needed and has to be imported. To make the in- and export possible a new...

Nederland ligt voor een groot deel onder de zeespiegel en circa 10 miljoen Nederlanders wonen in ‘overstroombaar’ gebied. Tijdens het hoog water van 1995 bleek wat voor consequenties dit kan hebben voor Nederland. Nu lijkt zich echter opnieuw een bedreigend fenomeen voor te doen: klimaatverandering. Het kabinet heeft in 2007 de Deltacommissie...

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...

The rise of sea level (18 to 91 cm in South Australia by the end of the 21st century) will result in beach erosion and, hence, poses a significant risk to the beaches of southeast Australia. This risk can be mitigated by means of beach nourishment. The costs of applying beach nourishment to the coast of southeast Australia in the 21st century...

Preliminary feasibility study on the development of a marina at Noordwijk The Dutch coast is a popular destination for tourists. The coast offers all kinds of water sports and activities on the beach. The nice boulevards and the peacefulness of nature attract many tourists as well. At certain points, however, the coast does not satisfy the...

A search for a victim of drowning is not always successful in practice: according to a rough guess only one out of ten corpses is found during a search by the authorities concerned. Several methods can be used in order to detect a corpse. In The Netherlands it is common to search with (tracker) dogs on the basis of corpse scent. Scent is...

Holland is a densely populated country with an important coastal zone that comprises most of the Dutch population. The dunes, the beach and the shoreface are a natural sandy protection for the Dutch coast. Natural processes, such as waves, winds and tides, coupled with human activity, may lead to shoreline erosion. Gradual recession of the coast...

The dune erosion prediction method presently used in the safety assessment of the Dutch dune coast was developed for situations with wave periods up to 12 seconds. New insights predict that situations with wave periods larger than 12 seconds can be expected. Preliminary analyses of the potential influence of larger wave periods on dune erosion...

Despite the abundant appearance of coastal inlets in Brazil, there are not many studies carried out involving them. UNIVALI (Universidade do Vale do Itajai) has set up an investigation program to gain more insight into the hydrodynamic and morphologic behaviour of inlets along the Brazilian coast. The main goal of this study is to investigate...

Bij de beoordeling van de veiligheid van de Nederlandse duinenkust wordt gebruik gemaakt van een rekenmodel dat, voor vastgestelde ontwerpomstandigheden, de mate van duinafslag bepaalt. De kern van dit rekenmodel wordt gevormd door het zogenaamde DUROS-rekenmodel (TAW, 1984). Op basis van beschikbare informatie en het verwachte bereik van de...

This new land will be exposed to a North Sea wave climate and tidal currents. Severe erosion of the dunes and a large draw back of the coastline has to be avoided. One of the possibilities to influence the wave climate and thus the sediment transport nearshore is by using a perched beach with a submerged breakwater (see Figures A2 and A3). The...

Dune erosion is a relatively fast developing cross-shore transport process which occurs during severe wave attack combined with high water levels. Large quantities of sand coming from the dunes are transported seaward. If no seaward or lateral losses occur, the sand balance will be closed in cross-shore direction. The eroded sand will deposit on...

The major part of the ongoing growth of the worlds population takes place in coastal zones, making that coasts are more and more intensively used. However, coasts are dynamic systems characterized by variability in shoreline position and profile shape, which sometimes conflicts with human interests as is the case at Cancach in Mexico. In...

The coastal zone in The Netherlands consists mainly of sand dunes. During storms and increased hydraulic conditions these dunes will erode. The section of these dunes that is sensitive to erosion processes is called the erosion zone and has a width of approximately 100 meters. For any building policy in this erosion zone at least two aspects are...

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...
