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 determination of wave penetration in ports is of great importance for the design of coastal structures and for the efficiency of port operations. Nowadays, coastal engineers can make use of numerical models for the assessment of wave climates in ports. Various numerical models exist, including the phase resolving models SWASH (TU Delft) and...

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...

Wave climates in ports can determine the efficiency of port operations to a large extent, so good predictions of them are important. This thesis therefore focusses on the modelling of wave penetration in ports, using several numerical models as well as a physical model. The goal is to compare numerical wave models for the use of wave penetration...

Moored vessels are subject to wave forces and moments at different frequencies, which induce motions of the body and can be transferred to the mooring lines and fenders. Under extreme forcing and vessel motions, dangerous line breaking accidents can occur or the ship movements can be simply too large to continue the on/off-loading process,...

The assessment of port marine operations performance by means of simulation is treated in this master thesis project. The navigational services provided to vessel at the access channels, from their arrival to the berthing operations and from unberthing to vessels departure, are investigated and evaluated. In the case study, FlexSim is used as...

Traditionally, ports are located in areas protected by natural shelter. Shelter is needed for the safe mooring of vessels and for the efficient handling of containers and other cargo. Disadvantage of the areas which provide natural shelter is their limiting depth. Due to the increasingly bigger vessels, dredging in ports became inevitable....

The workability of floating construction equipment is one of the elements in the construction phasing of the design of the Ashdod port extension in the south of Israel by DHV Consultancy and Engineering. Waves play an important role in the workability of floating equipment, since they induce motions to floating equipment with the possibility of...
