To help to provide a desperately needed coastal protection strategy for the Mekong Delta in Vietnam this research looks into the possibilities for natural and sustainable coastal defence systems, including mangroves and active sediment management, such as a nourishment. The coastline of the Mekong Delta suffers from severe erosion and mangrove...

During the last two years, CUR committee 183 has worked on the upgrade of the Dutch Quay Walls handbook (CUR 211), which is to be published in 2013. Two of the main elements that are considered in this new edition are the addition of Finite Element analysis (FEM) as a method for design, comparable to the description in the Handbook Sheet-Pile...

Lake Markermeer is a large and shallow freshwater lake in the center of the Netherlands. The lake was originally part of the Zuiderzee, a sea inlet of the North Sea. The lake is an important ecosystem, especially for water birds. The main problem in Lake Markermeer is the decreasing ecological value. High turbidity levels are believed to be one...

For the design of cost-effective coastal defence a precise estimate is needed of the 1/10 000 per year storm surge. A more precise estimate requires more observations. Therefore, the three greatest storm surges that hit the northern part of the Holland Coast in the 18th century are reconstructed. The reconstructions are based on paintings,...

One week the students stay in the Bulgarian village St. Konstantin, near Varna, at the Black Sea. The main goal of the fieldwork is learn how to deal with problems occurring at data collection and the elaboration and interpretation of the collected data. Several coastal measurements are executed at a couple of beaches and their accompanying...

For a proposed liquefied natural gas export facility, Olokola LNG (OKLNG), located at the western limits of the Niger Delta in Nigeria a 10 km long and 17 m deep approach channel is designed for tankers to reach the terminal at the shoreline. Mud is expected to be deposited in the channel because of the persistent swell climate which mobilizes...

According to modern design codes, such as the Eurocode 7, also Soil Retaining structures should be designed according to Ultimate Limit State analysis, see [1]. From an economic point of view, the design of the lining, i.e. the thickness and reinforcement of it, would be optimal if the loading during construction is less critical than the...

This report is written for the course ‘Fieldwork Hydraulic Engineering’ held between the TU Delft and Sofia University. The course consisted of 19 participants who carried out measurements in and around the small village St Konstantin, near the Bulgarian city Varna, from the 29th of September till 6th of October. The report describes the results...

In 1997 for the first time construction of bored tunnels in the Netherlands soft soil was undertaken. Before that date essentially only immersed tunnels and cut-and-cover tunnels were constructed in the Netherlands. The first two bored tunnels were Pilot Projects, the 2nd Heinenoord tunnel and the Botlek Rail tunnel. Since then a series of other...

The topic of this thesis is the development of models for the structural analysis of soil retaining structures. The soil retaining structures being looked at are; block revetments, flexible retaining walls and bored tunnels in soft soil. Within this context typical structural behavior of these structures is discussed too. The emphasis within the...

Two pilot projects for bored tunnelling in soft soil have been undertaken in the Netherlands. The monitoring was commissioned under the authority of the Centre for Underground Construction (COB). A description of the research related to the Second Heinenoord Tunnel and the Botlek Rail Tunnel will be given. The Second Heinenoord Tunnel has...

This book deals on "Coastal Dynamics", which will be defined in a narrow sense as a mathematical theory, which starts from given equations of motion for the sediment, which leads with the continuity equation and given boundary conditions to a calculated (eventually schematized) coastal topography, which is generally a function of time. This is...

Op 6 en 7 oktober 1994 hebben twee grootschalige damdoorbraakexperimenten plaatsgevonden in Het Zwin in Zee uwsch-Vlaanderen. Vooral het eerste experiment op 6 oktober heeft veel publicitaire aandacht getrokkcn. Op het beslissende ogenblik, het begin van de proef rondom het tijdstip van hoogwater, verliep deze proef niet volgens verwachting. Het...

Om te onderzoeken welke invloed chaotische advectie kan hebben op een doorgaande stroming is een tweedimensionaal horizontaal computermodel gemaakt met de naam Xadvec. Het model beschrijft een ondiep rond meer waarin door de wind en door een constant doorstromend debiet een stroming wordt opgewekt. De windrichting varieert periodiek met de tijd....

This study considers the feasibility of a special floating pier at the port of Caripito. This port, located along the Rio San Juan, is the port of embarkment for many oil fields in north-east Venezuela. A few years ago some dolphins at the port collapsed. These problems are mainly caused by river bank slidings. As a result one pier has not been...

Contains basic paper plus background supplements. Areas like the Western Wadden area have a length of approximately 1/4 of a tidal wave length. Therefore tidal motion is sensible for resonance. It is investigated, under which circumstances morphological instabilities may occur. Instabilities are defined in this way, that small depth increments...

Along tht coastline at Ter Heijde, near Delft, a dam parallel to the coast in shallow water will be constructed havlng a horizontal crest at the level NAP -3 m on the landward side, merging into the existing coastal profile and having on the seaward side a slope 1:20. The dam will have a length of 1.5 km (fig. 1). This work will be carried out...
