Since their development in the 1970s, mesoscale atmospheric models have been used for a variety of meteorological applications. Over the years, the models have evolved and nowadays, state-of-the-art atmospheric models are capable of operating on spatial resolutions in the order of kilometres. In the hydraulic engineering community, atmospheric...

Aquatic vegetation, found in coastal waters and inter tidal areas, has important features for hydraulic engineering solutions, including sedimentation and stabilization of the bed. The increasing demand to predict wave hydrodynamics with aquatic vegetation asks for insight in the mechanisms and improved model methods. Striving to a more...

A filter can be applied to protect a bed against scour. Normally, these filters are geometrically closed, to prevent winnowing of the base material through the filter. However, geometrically closed filters are expensive and difficult to realize in the field. Geometrically open filters can serve as an alternative. Within an open filter, the pores...

Alongshore variability in topography (i.e. height differences in bed level along the coast) can exist on both natural and nourished beaches. An important question prior to implementation of a nourishment project is how alongshore variability is going to evolve and, related to this variability, the effect of the project upon swimmer safety. In...

Pipeline covers on the seabed are called near-bed structures which are generally made of rip rap. The crest height of a near-bed structure is such that waves do not break over it. Near-bed structures are used to protect pipelines against fishing equipment, ship anchors, dropped objects and preventing destabilizing of the pipeline. There are two...

Hurricane Ike (2008) made landfall near Galveston, Texas, as a moderate intensity storm. Its large wind field in conjunction with the Louisiana-Texas coastline's broad shelf and large scale concave geometry generated waves and surge that impacted over 1000 km of coastline. Ike's complex and varied wave and surge response physics included: the...

This thesis focusses on the north-eastward shifting beach at Brouwersdam, which poses a problem for users and stakeholders of the beach. This trend is likely to continue in the foreseeable future and could result in a beach that can no longer fulfil its current functions, like recreation and tourism. Analysis of bathymetric data from the last...

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...

Destructive wave overtopping tests have been performed at more than 20 dike sections in the Netherlands using the Wave Overtopping Simulator to simulate the overtopping waves. The tests show the combined behaviour of turf and substrate up to mean wave overtopping discharges of 75 ?/s per m, meaning wave volumes up to 5,500 ?/m with flow...

Hofste, G.M. (author)
The Dutch department of Public Works had a problem regarding wave impacts on a beam in the Stevin outlet sluices, located in the Afsluitdijk. Wave impacts on this beam could also cause a peak pressure on the barrier gate, just behind the beam. The numerical program ComFLOW and physical scale experiments were used to predict the wave impacts for...

The erosion problem at the Senegambia area (The Gambia) is the subject of this thesis. The Senegambia area is the largest Tourism developed area which contributes significantly to the economy of The Gambia. In November 2003 Royal Haskoning has constructed a beach nourishment of 1,000,000 m3 as an erosion buffer with a lifetime of 10 to 15 years....

The purpose of this report is to investigate the differences in overtopping characteristics over the crest of a rubble mound breakwater when the crest is made either impermeable or permeable. Among numerous characteristics that are effected by a modification in the permeability of the crest, this report looks specifically into three separate...

Part I: On the time scales of wave processes. To systematically improve the SWAN model a study on the wave physics in a tidal inlet was carried out. The third-generation SWAN model was used to compute the wave processes in a tidal inlet for storm conditions. The computed wave processes are propagation (shoaling, refraction and frequency shifting...

Recent study has shown that 3D computations of the morphological development of a coast shows irregularities compared with the 2DH (depth-averaged) computations. Therefore a validation of the surf zone currents computed using the 2DH (depth-averaged) and 3D approach in Delft3D is made. The 2DH and 3D approach are compared using an idealized case...

Modern design formula for coastal structures (like rock stability formula and overtopping formula use wave parameters (H2% and Tm-1,0) which are not readily available from standard boundary condition wave data. For transforming values like Hs and Tp to the parameters used in the new formulas, often-fixed conversion factors are used. However,...

Filterconstructies hebben als doel erosie te voorkomen in bepaalde delen van waterbouwkundige kunstwerken. Ze zijn opgebouwd uit een basislaag en een of meer filterlagen. Er zijn verschillende soorten filterconstructies. Ze worden over het algemeen zo gemaakt dat er geen erosie zal optreden van basismateriaal. Het is echter efficienter om een...

Van der Wal, R.J. (author)
Especially during storms the coast-profile can change dramatically. During storms large waves cause high oscillatory water velocities near the bottom and the bed becomes plane and sheet flow becomes the dominant sediment transport mode. Because field measurements are difficult to perform in-situ, laboratory experiments concerning these processes...

In this thesis, the wave prediction model SWAN is validated on field data obtained from wave growth experiments that were done in Lake George, a shallow lake in Australia. SWAN, which is an acronym for Simulation of WAves in Nearshore areas, is a numerical model, developed at the University of Technology in Delft, to obtain estimates of wave...
