Coastal regions are more and more affected by changes in water levels, storm patterns etc. owing to climate change. Nourishments and other human interventions constitute common practice in order to maintain and secure these areas. However, many aspects, especially the hydrodynamics, are not yet fully understood due to the complexity of the...

Nourishments are considered to be a popular soft measure against coastal erosion. In the Netherlands, the concept of a localized mega nourishment has been introduced as an innovative approach, aiming to counteract the anticipated enhanced coastal erosion. The positive results of the Sand Engine implementation lead the way for applying the mega...

As soil behaviour is stress-dependent, a centrifuge model with tilting sample box was developed to generate liquefaction flow slides at higher confining stresses. The design and experimental set-up were based on the large liquefaction tank (de Jager et al., 2017). Fluidisation was used as sample preparation technique to produce a saturated,...

In 2003 certain areas of the Dutch coast were found not to meet contemporary safety standards, as a result of erosion that occurred over the last century. One of these 'weak links' stretches from Camperduin to Petten and is known as the Hondsebossche Pettemer Zeewering; a former 'hard' sea dyke with a stone revetment. To fortify this 12...

Information about the hydrodynamic, sediment transport and morphodynamics is limited in pocket beaches (Dehouck et al., 2009). However, a good understanding is necessary for effective management of coastal areas (Scholar et al., 1998). A small artificial pocket beach has relatively large shadow zones, therefore, diffraction might be an important...

Beach scarps are nearly vertical seaward facing walls within the cross-shore beach profile. These features are often associated with eroding (nourished) coastlines and can reach heights of O(2-3 m), leading to serious hazards to beach users and negatively impacting local ecosystems. New insights into beach scarp morphodynamics related to...

Wave runup is generated by energy which remains after wave breaking and travels farther to the coast in the form of a bore. It can be seen as a thin wedge of water running up the beach face (Brocchini and Baldock, 2008). Under storm conditions runup is responsible for beach and dune erosion and accurate runup predictions are therefore required ...

A very common observation is the episodic erosion of beaches during storms and the slow recovery (accretion) afterwards (Yates et al. 2009). Morphodynamic models parameterize physical processes in order to relate the fluid motions (hydrodynamics) to the bed level changes (morphodynamics) over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. Despite...

Crescentic sandbars are a commonly observed nearshore feature in coastal zones that strongly influence the surfzone circulations and are connected with the occurrence of rip currents. Furthermore, their spatial characteristics have been associated with the shoreline position in the form of shoreline perturbations, indicating morphological...

The Sand Engine is a new innovation in coastal protection, a mega feeder nourishment. This pilot project was constructed in 2011 along the Delfland coast, which is historically prone to erosion. Since its construction, the Sand Engine is intensively being monitored to track the morphological development.

The objective of this thesis is...
