Over the last three decades the beach area of Piçarras has undergone large changes. The river Piçarras was fixed which caused severe erosion problems. With large nourishment projects the municipality tried to create a sustainable beach area. However, these nourishments did not form a long term solution, which means that, until the present day,...

The highway Ruta Nacional 90 (between Barranquilla and Santa Marta) is heavily endangered by progressive coastal erosion. Principally, this has a natural cause since the shifting mouth of the Magdalena River led to an insufficient supply of sediment. However, this threat has been foreseen for decades without it leading to adequate planning or...

The eThekwini coastline is a vulnerable coastline subject to chronic erosion and damage due to sea level rise. In 2007 a severe storm caused major physical and economic damage along the coastline, proving the need for action. Umhlanga Rocks is a densely populated premium holiday destination on the eThekwini coastline suffering from similar...

This paper explores an alternative method to determine extreme surge levels at the Dutch Coast. For this exploration, specific focus is on the extreme water level at Hoek van Holland, The Netherlands. The alternative method has been based on a joint probability model of the storm characteristics at the North Sea. The intent of this method is to...

Introduction Bow thrusters are of great help for the navigation at quay walls, but the high and turbulent velocities can result in a bed load exceeding the strength of the bed or bed protection. To be able to design a stable bed the velocities at the bed need to be accurately determined. In design practise the velocities generated by a propeller...

The Port of Rotterdam is expanding to meet the growing demand to accommodate large cargo vessels. The construction of Maasvlakte 2 (MV2) started in September 2008. One of the licensing conditions is the monitoring of the underwater sound produced during its construction, with an emphasis on the establishment of acoustic source levels of the...

Het stormseizoen is weer begonnen in Nederland. De duinen en dijken langs de Nederlandse kust kunnen in deze periode zwaar belast worden door een combinatie van hoge stormvloed en zware golven. Op dit moment worden deze waterkeringen getoetst en ontworpen met waterstandsgegevens die vooral gebaseerd zijn op statistische extrapolatie van...

The predictions for the future foretell an increase of the amount of exported grain over the Rio Paraná/Rio de la Plata system of 63% in 2030. Besides this, the new Panama locks will be finished in 2015. Seeing as the current shipping standard is largely determined by the Panama locks, the general expectation is that the vessel dimensions will...

To date no study has been done to analyse the effect on water level for the Dutch coast from the passage of storms over the North Sea. This research examines the feasibility of developing a joint probability method to determine the extreme water level for the Dutch coast, resulting from these storms. This has been done by means of a parametric...

In 2008 kwam de tweede Deltacommissie met het voorstel om het waterpeil van het IJsselmeer in de toekomst met 1,5 m te verhogen. Door de verwachte zeespiegelstijging zal het namelijk steeds moeilijker worden om het overtollige water van het IJsselmeer af te voeren naar zee. Om dit onder vrij verval te kunnen blijven doen is een peilopzet...

Physical model tests were done on an armour of Tetrapods, placed in a single layer. The objective of the investigations was to study the stability of the secondary layer, and to see if the material of this secondary layer could be washed out through the single layer of Tetrapods. It was concluded that secondary armour is not washed out through...

Induced by a rapid increase of ship sizes in the last decades, the demand for deeper waterways emerged and so did the demand for higher breakwaters. The scale of land reclamation projects has also increased concomitantly. This means they extend such projects now further offshore into deeper water, requiring higher watersheds. In this deeper...

After the disastrous floods in Bangladesh in 1987 the Flood Action Plan (FAP) was initiated. The FAP was a co-ordinated action to study the flood problems of Bangladesh. The Meghna Estuary Study (MES) was drawn up as a component of the FAP. The overall goal of MES is to ensure the physical safety and social security of the people living in the...

From February to April 1999, wave-blocking experiments have been conducted at the Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands as a part of the Ph.D. research of I.K. Suastika. Wave blocking is a special case of wave-current interaction. It can occur when waves...

Outfalls are built for the purpose ofdischarging sewage, storm runoff or cooling water into the sea. During the installation, outfalls are exposed to relatively large hydrodynamic forces compared to their own weight in case of adverse weather or high currents. To resist these forces, a heavy concrete weight coating has to be applied. With...

Due to the new act on the water defense the Directorate-General of Public Works and Water Management of the Netherlands is required to evaluate the design conditions for the coastal defenses every five years. To do this evaluation a model is needed to translate offshore wave conditions to nearshore design conditions. For such transformations...
