This report intends to stimulate the discussion about enhancing and tuning the application of the traditional method for engineering design projects for educational purposes at Delft University of Technology - and possibly for the engineering practice as well. It aims at creating awareness of putting the design activities in a logical order and...

This technical report sketches the main development of the flood defence system in the Netherlands. It concentrates on the establishment of the flood safety level and flood risk reduction strategies. First developments in the study of loading and soil properties until 1960 are described in Chapter 2. The storm surge of 1953 accelerated the...

Historically the Netherlands have always had to deal with the threat of flooding, both from the rivers and the sea as well as from heavy rainfall. The country consists of a large amount of polders, which are low lying areas of land protected from flooding by embankments. These polders require an extensive water storage and drainage system to...

This report, that provides an extended summary of a similar named thesis, addresses how a new method for the evaluation of policies with a very long term impact on the Dutch Inland Waterway Transport (IWT) system can be developed. It proposes an outline for a very long term transport model, prepares a number of very long term scenarios, and...

The sediment composition of the sea bed is of relevance for various coastal properties such as bed forms, beach slopes and marine ecology. Furthermore it may significantly influence the morphological evolution of the coast. The sediment sorting processes at natural beaches are, however, difficult to distinguish since there can be a both a large...

Results of labtests on reflection and transmission trough a vertical permeable breakwater for the purpose of validating mathematical models. In the laboratory a model of a vertical, permeable breakwater was constructed with elastocoast and tests were done with regular and irregular waves.

Floods in the summer of 2013 in Central Europe demonstrated once again that floods account for a large part of damage and loss of life caused by natural disasters. During flood threats emergency measures, such as sand bags and big bags, are often applied to strengthen the flood defences and attempt to prevent breaches. Although these measures...

The study aims to establish a set of formulas estimating velocity and depth of overtopping flows at sea dikes including seaward-side slope, crest and landward-side slope. These formulas are applicable to flows which are generated by natural waves and the simulator giving associated characteristics of any arbitrary value of exceedance probability...

For describing the relation between the grainsize and the nominal diameter (d50 vs. dn50) usually a factor 0.84 is used. This factor has been derived by Laan [1981] "De relatie tussen vorm en gewicht van breuksteen (the relation between shape and weight of pieces of rock), report MAW-R-81079". However, this original report cannot be retrieved...

Waves can be measured in several ways. One way of measuring waves is by measuring the wave pressure at a certain depth using a pressure sensor and calculate the wave information from the pressure record. The EMS wave logger uses a Honeywell MLH 050 PGP 06A pressure sensor. The information is stored by the logger on a SD card. The software in the...

In het kader van het Deltaprogramma wordt gewerkt aan de zogenaamde Deltascenario’s. Hierbij wordt uitgegaan van de WLO-scenario’s 2040 en de KNMIscenario’s 2006. Uitgaande van combinaties tussen de WLO- en de KNMI-scenario’s worden (vier) Deltascenario’s 2050 opgesteld. De scenario’s geven mogelijke ontwikkelingen maar hebben geen...

This report provides a comparison of the Dutch Delta Works, New Orleans and the Ike Dike concept. The Ike Dike is a coastal barrier that, when completed, would protect the Houston-Galveston region including Galveston Bay from hurricane storm surge.

Between 2009 and 2011, some grass-covered sea dikes were tested with the Wave Overtopping Simulator in the north of Viet Nam. Slope specifications and grass species of sea and estuary dikes were quantitatively observed and investigated. This report is concerned with expressing main characteristics of four grass species on some dike slopes in the...

Estuarine systems worldwide contain large quantities of fine (cohesive) sediment. Fate and transport of these sediments is to a large extent governed by erosion and deposition processes. Knowledge on the behaviour of these sediments is required for modeling purposes in order to predict impacts on morphology and environment as a result of e.g....

The phenomenon of wave overtopping during storms was simulated by the Wave Overtopping Simulator on a 1/15 grass covered slope. The four 'Wave Overtopping Simulator' tests were done within the framework of the Research project 'Super sea dike with high safety level and environmental friendly' funded by Viet Nam government. The main objective of...
