Vargas Luna, A. (author)
There is rising awareness of the need to include the effects of vegetation in studies dealing with the morphological response of rivers. Vegetation growth on river banks and floodplains alters the river bed topography, reduces the bank erosion rates and enhances the development of new floodplains through river bank accretion. The role of...

Chen, X. (author)
Due to climate change, sea level rise, increasing frequency and intensity of storms, and growing population in low-lying coastal regions, the risk of flooding is expected to increase. Owing to these developments, maintenance and adaption of the existing coastal flood defence is often required. To meet this dilemma, the concept of multifunctional...

The main objective of this project is to develop new measuring techniques for providing detailed data on sediment sorting suitable for sand-gravel laboratory experiments. Such data will be of aid in obtaining new insights on sorting mechanisms and improving prediction capabilities of morphodynamic models. Two measuring techniques have been...

Meandering rivers are interesting features of the landscape due to their aesthetically pleasing forms. There is an abundance of scientific studies on meandering rivers, however, their behaviour is still not fully understood. The complexity of the flow, bed morphodynamics and bank stability, the related uncertainties in water and sediment motion,...

Aquatic plants –or macrophytes- are an important part of coastal, estuarine and freshwater ecosystems worldwide, both from an ecological and an engineering viewpoint. Their meadows provide a wide range of ecosystem services: forming a physical protection of the shoreline, enhancing water quality and harbouring many other organisms. Unfortunately...

Two experiments are performed in order to investigate suspended sediment transport in a turbulent open channel flow. The first experiment used particle image velocimetry (PIV) to measure the fluid velocity with a high spatial resolution, while particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) was used to measure the velocity of individual sediment particles....

Suzuki, T. (author)
It has been widely recognized that ongoing climate change, most likely due to human interference with nature, may accelerate sea level rise and increase storm intensity. It is therefore urgent to design countermeasures to alleviate the impact of climate change on coastal regions. Apart from the view point of coastal protection, it is also very...

Talstra, H. (author)
The Ph.D. thesis “Large-scale turbulence structures in shallow separating flows” by Harmen Talstra is the result of a Ph.D. research project on large-scale shallow-flow turbulence, which has been performed in the Environmental Fluid Mechanics Laboratory at Delft University of Technology. The dynamics of quasi two-dimensional turbulence...

Wols, B.A. (author)
Hydrodynamic processes largely determine the efficacy of drinking water treatment systems, in particular disinfection systems. A lack of understanding of the hydrodynamics has resulted in suboptimal designs of these systems. The formation of unwanted disinfection-by-products and the energy consumption or use of chemicals is therefore higher than...

Van Balen, W. (author)
The flow of water through a river bend can be characterized as a turbulent open-channel flow that is dominated by streamline curvature. In order to adequately manage the planimetry of meandering rivers and the according safety aspects, the features of the flow and the associated turbulence have to be understood well. This thesis presents results...
