This report focuses on a feasibility study of a device that harvests electricity from the vertical motion of pontoons in tidal waves. The study includes an overall look into tidal prediction through laser satellite altimetry and converts the ocean based data of these models into near shore approximations. Furthermore the report compares several...

Construction, infrastructure and public or private projects have a long history of project ailments which almost always lead to cost escalation. From all the studies conducted in the past that looked and examined the cost escalation phenomenon, it seems that cost overrun is more of a rule than an exception. Some studies show even that on average...

Inflation is a worldwide phenomenon that influences future investment decisions. Inflation is the devaluation of money, causing a reduction of purchasing power and price level rise. Nobody knows how high inflation will be, and thus price levels in the future a uncertain. In long-term projects with expenses in the future, it is important to take...

Floods are one of the most devastating natural disasters, hitting various regions in the world each year. In the last decades the potential damage caused by floods has increased. The need for tools, like flood maps and flood models, for real time monitoring and forecasting of floods has also increased. When an upcoming flood is expected, and...

Flood protection of the land around an estuary has been important for the Netherlands since the floodings of 1953. There are several types of possible solutions. For example; levee heightening, construction of a dam or a storm surge barrier. All these solutions have certain disadvantages, like costs or environmental impact. Another option is a...

The Mekong Delta is located in the South of Vietnam, where the Mekong River flows into the East Sea. The Mekong Delta is responsible for producing half of the national food volume for Vietnam. Socio-economic and agricultural development in particular, have encountered several restrictive factors though: decreasing amount of agricultural land,...

The Nederrijn and Lek are presently dammed by three weirs, build in 1960 till 1970, which are located near the village of Driel, Amerongen, and Hagestein after which they are named. Weir Driel regulates the distribution of water at the IJsselkop for dammed conditions (discharges lower than 2350 m3/s at Lobith). A minimum discharge of 285 m3/s...

Due to climate change, it is expected that the design river discharge of the Rhine will increase from 16000 m3/s in 2015 to 18000 m3/s in 2100. In order to make the Dutch water system climate proof, dikes must be reinforced and raised and/or the design water level must be lowered. In this study, a flood channel as a measure to decrease water...

Civil structures, especially hydraulic structures, are subject to influences from the environment around the structure. As a result of these influences the structure degrades, which lowers the strength of the structure. Several actions are available to lower the speed of degradation and/or restore the structure to a certain condition. Within the...

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...

Introduction The popularity of monitoring dikes with sensor techniques is rising. It is claimed that sensor techniques lead to significant cost savings and can predict an upcoming dike collapse. But a technical foundation to use the sensor monitoring information in flood safety assessment is lacking. This research investigates the contribution...

Lendering, K.T. (author)
New container ports are mostly constructed on low lying coastal areas or in shallow coastal waters. The quay wall and terminal yard are then raised to a level well above mean sea level to insure safety against inundation. The resulting ‘conventional terminal’ requires large volumes of good quality fill material often dredged from the sea which...

Introduction Floods are a threat to millions of people who live in lowlands like the Netherlands. Therefore the Dutch government has been given re-quirements for primary flood defence systems like dikes. The current condition of most of these dikes does not fulfill to these requirements based on flood risk analyses of RWS. The most logical step...

A committee of Civieltechnisch Centrum Uitvoering Research en Regelgeving (CUR) is currently (2012) working on the update of the handbook Quay Walls (CUR 211). In the past the partial safety factors in this book were derived using a spring model, but new developments enable to use Finite Element Methods (FEM) to model sheet-pile structures and...
