In this thesis, a method was developed, with which the infragravity waves and morphological changes of a sandy foreshore are included in the calculation of the probability of dike failure due to wave overtopping. Constructing a natural foreshore in front of the dike can be an attractive and innovative method to decrease the failure probability....

The protection of breakwater structures is in this research considered. The design of rubble mound concrete armour layers for breakwaters can be divided in a single layer system and a double layer system. The single layer system is nowadays mostly applied because of the high interlocking, high stability of the structure, reduction of concrete...

There is a shift in the approach for designing coastal structures. In the past, dikes were designed on the probability of exceedance of an incoming wave during storm conditions. In the near future, the design criteria will be the probability of flooding of the hinterland. In order to determine this flooding probability, the strength of the dike...

The main goal of this study is to determe the relation between very oblique wave attack and overtopping, and to accordingly adjust the formulae for oblique wave attack. The required knowledge to be able to read and understand this report is of a Bachelor in civil engineering level. All around the world different types of structures are built to...

Breakwaters are important objects to protect coastal- and harbour areas. To minimalize the probability of failure of breakwaters, a lot of research has been conducted concerning the stability of breakwaters. After Iribarren and Hudson, an influential research is conducted by Van der Meer. The literature research of this report will provide more...

The stability formula developed by Van der Meer is used for the design of different kind of rock slopes. In the formula is among a number of other parameters also the permeability of the structure represented. A more permeable structure has the ability to dissipate more water and therefore more energy, this results into a lower required weight...

Nowadays the protection of our country for high sea levels and heavy storms is daily news. The ComCoast project (COMbined functions in the COASTal defence zones) is originated by ten organisations out of five European countries bordering the North Sea coasts in order to develop innovative solutions for flood protection in coastal areas. Instead...

In VAN GENT [2004] graphs were presented in which the datasets of VAN DER MEER [1988] and VAN GENT ET AL. [2003] were compared, but in this comparison a number of parameters were not correctly transformed into a comparable format. In this M.Sc. thesis after an extensive analysis to the datasets all parameters of the datasets of Van der Meer were...

Wave transmission is often an important criterion in the design of a low-crested breakwater structure and influences early decisions on the type of structure and the applied construction material. In design stages classical formulae are used to predict the wave transmission coefficient Kt [-], but these formulae still show a considerable scatter...

Dit afstudeerverslag handelt met name over de golftransmissiecoefficient van gabionboxen belast door golven. Het onderzoek is uitgevoerd in het kader van een afstudeerproject aan de Technische Universiteit Delft, in samenwerking met baggermaatschappij Boskalis. Gabions worden op dit moment vooral toegepast als bodembescherming tegen de...

Heijn, K.M. (author)
Recently, interest in vertical breakwaters has grown. The development of ports from natural small harbours to artificial large harbours facing the outer sea has demanded the construction of breakwaters in rougher seas. The vertical breakwater could play a role of importance in this development. To obtain general guidelines for the design of...

Vertical breakwaters are used in the design of harbours to create a protective area. This protective area can be an approach channel or the harbour itself. Because of large new projects, such as Maasvlakte 11 in the Netherlands and the increasing sizes of ships, many harbours have to be placed in deep water. Deep water requires higher...

Dit afstudeerverslag beschrijft de interpretatie van een aantal proeven naar stabiliteit van lage golfbrekers. Het blijk dat de invloed van de materiaalfactoren tot een ontwerpschade van S=2 niet terug is te vinden. Boven S=2 geeft vooral de afnemende hoekigheid een progressief schadeverloop te zien. De invloed van de lengte-breedte verhouding...

In the late seventies, begin eighties a number of large breakwaters was severely damaged. The armour layer of these breakwaters consisted of slender concrete armour units, like dolosse or tetrapods. It appeared that one of the main reasons of failure of these breakwaters was breakage of the armour units. Obviously, the mechanical strength of the...

Through the increasing draught of large vessels the need for breakwaters at greater depths becomes more and more important. In this respect vertical breakwaters may be the best alternative because of the considerable savings in construction time as well as the lower construction and maintenance costs. Therefore a lot of research is performed...

In this report an analysis of data from a series of tests is presented on the stability of the toe structure of rubble mound breakwaters. The existing knowledge on toe stability and the influence of all governing parameters in the existing knowledge is reviewed. The tests which were performed for the present research are treated extensively. The...

This report contains an analysis of data on wave transmission. It is restricted to wave transmission at low-crested permeable breakwaters. All data used are from tests with irregular waves. These data were earlier gatherd in Delft Hydraulics' report: "Data on wave transmission due to overtopping by J.W. van der Meer ((1990). Aim of the research:...

Een numerieke beschrijving van de waterbeweging op een talud, met daaraan gekoppeld een stabiliteitsberekening voor stortsteen, is ontwikkeld door Kobayashi (1987). De waterbeweging wordt beschreven met de i-dimensionale langegolf vergelijking. De golfkrachten langs het talud worden beschreven met de vergelijkingen van Morison. Resultaten met...

In dit verslag worden neerloopmetingen gepresenteerd en geanalyseerd welke zijn verkregen uit onderzoeken naar de statische stabiliteit van stortsteen taluds onder golfaanval. De analyse van deze proeven heeft geleid tot de relatie voor de relatieve neerloop die door 2% van de neerlopen wordt overschreden. Deze empirische relatie wordt...

Wat betreft de jachthaven van Breskens hoeven we ons over het voorzieningen-niveau geen zorgen te maken. Het gaat in dit rapport niet om een ontwerp van een geheel nieuwe haven, maar om een reeds bestaande, goed funktionerende haven, die plannen tot uitbreiding heeft. De aanleiding en motivatie van deze plannen worden beschreven in hoofdstuk 1,...
