The first quay walls were constructed in 2400 BC and were constructed with bricks. Since then, the quay walls have developed a lot. The quay walls nowadays are constructed out of steel, concrete or a combination of both materials. An upcoming material in the field of hydraulic engineering is fibre reinforced polymer (FRP). FRP has several...

The main objective of this study is the realisation of a computer tool. The function of the tool is to estimate the required dimensions and quantities of essential container, dry and liquid bulk terminal elements, in an early design phase. As well as to give an estimate of the construction costs of these marine terminals. Terminal element...

All harbours require frequent dredging to cope with sedimentation. In certain cases the deposited sediment/silt forms a weak soil layer referred to as fluid mud. The top layer is often used as nautical bottom, while its presence is not necessarily harmful to the vessel. This could lead to the conclusion that the safety margin underneath a vessel...

This thesis report considers the topic of sustainable marina development. This term can be understood to be a combination of two terms; “sustainable development” and “marina”. Sustainable development in this research study has been considered in relation to the coastal zone and basically entails an approach to ensure a balance between the...

The main goal in this research is to predict how translation waves evolve in a canal and what the consequences for the workability of water-borne construction equipment are. Translation waves arise due to filling and emptying of lock systems. In this research the measures to reduce effects of translation waves are control options related to the...

Uncertainties about climate change and the energy market constitute a major challenge in designing a pumping station. To tackle this challenge, a robust design is needed, that performs satisfactory under a wide variety of future conditions. Multi-Objective Robust Simulation Optimization (MORSO) was applied, to create a robust re-design for...

The city of Amsterdam increases with approximately 10,000 inhabitants per year and Amsterdam-North is strongly under development attracting housing, employment and (re)creational activities. This is expected to induce a growth of 65% in pedestrians and cyclists, referred to as slow traffic. crossing the river IJ in 2025. The city ferry system,...

In this report a design tool has been developed for offshore harbours. The main objective of the design tool is to recommend an optimum value for the offshore distance of the berth, the breakwater length and the breakwater type. This recommendation has to be made based on CAPEX and OPEX estimates for the various structures the offshore harbour...

Without doubt the need to give a founded estimation of the remaining life span is needed. In the NEN 8700 and 8701 and the guideline of Rijkswaterstaat (RBK) a way to determine the structural reliability is given. The corresponding estimate of the remaining life span is based on but not equal to the suggested reference period of the loads. These...

The objective of this study is to determine whether a floating terminal could be a suitable and feasible solution for the realisation of a new berthing location for the cruise ships of the future. This feasibility study is based on the amount of downtime of a terminal due to excessive motions because of wave loading. Therefore, this study...

The stability of any structure is an important aspect in civil engineering. The subject of this thesis is the stability of the quay structure at the Amazonehaven, port of Rotterdam. The reason for writing this report is to investigate the safety and stability of the quay structure, which was built in 1990, throughout its service lifetime while...

Ports have evolved into an essential part of a nation’s economy [Schipper et al., 2015]. In order to obtain economic growth and prevent loss of trade and competitive position, the worldwide growth in port development will not stop [PIANC 2014a]. At present the port development process typically results in environmental mitigation and/or harm....

For the development of the preliminary design of a dry dock, the present design methods are based on information from experience and manuals. Dry docks are not as frequently designed and built as other maritime structures and due to this many information is lost in time. To improve the process for the preliminary design of dry docks this thesis...

Waterborne transport infrastructures play a crucial role in global integration, and ports are key components to materialise this amalgamation. However they are constantly challenged to keep fulfilling their functions in a changing environment. Port of Rotterdam, the largest port in Europe and the Western hemisphere too, faces those challenges on...

As the shipping industry is growing, more and more propulsion systems are being developed with better propulsion capabilities. These current and newly developing systems in ships are expected to cause scour at beds around berthing structures with greater likelihood than the systems preceding them, which increases the importance of protection...

Port locations are often selected to optimize access to land and navigable water. Many ports are therefore situated at the mouth of an estuary or along a coastline. Besides being economically important these locations are also often valuable from a biodiversity point of view. Human interventions along the coast such as port development often do...

Future-proof design of quay walls is an interesting issue in civil Engineering, because of the dynamic environment in which quay walls are operating. Designers are confronted with time-changing requirements such as larger retaining heights and heavier loads. However, a technical and financial analysis has revealed that the design of new quay...
