Alongshore currents are currents parallel to the coastline. In coastal areas they are driven by a combination of wave and tidal forcing. In this study, the validity of the non-hydrostatic, wave-flow model SWASH to predict these currents is investigated. This is done by comparing model predictions with measurement observations. Observations were...

This paper presents a risk-based method to quantify climate change effects on road infrastructure, as a support for decision-making on interventions. This can be implemented in climate adaptation plans as an element of asset management. The method is illustrated by a specific case in which traffic on a road network is disrupted by the flooding...

When dredging in sensitive environments, efforts have to be made to limit the free dispersal of suspended fine sediment from the dredging spill. Especially the use of hanging silt curtains as an environmental mitigation measure is widespread. Despite frequent application, their ability to reduce turbidity levels through vertical diversion of...

Due to frequently occurring storms, like hurricanes and cold fronts, the coasts around the Mexican port city Veracruz suffer from erosion. This is most severe at the beaches of Boca del Rio just south of the city of Veracruz. Here, small beaches can be found between large groynes. These groynes block the southward littoral drift significantly...

One of the potential environmental issues associated with dredging in the marine environment is the increase of suspended sediment concentrations (SSC) by generation and dispersion of sediment plumes. This can be mitigated by source control or by the installation of containment barriers like silt screens. This article focusses on hanging silt...

For the course CT5318 a trip is made to Varna, Bulgaria, where hydraulic measurement s on the beach and the coastal structures are executed by the students. This report describes the measured data, the used methods and the technical interpretation of the results. All the data was processed in Varna and analysed once returned in the Netherlands....

This report was written for the subject "Fieldwork Coastal Engineering". This subject was held for the first time in October 2002. The exercise was carried out in the Bulgarian city Varna and its surroundings out from October 6 to October 14. This report has the following structure. First, there is a journal in which the activities we undertook...

Van oudsher heeft Nederland te maken met rivieroverstromingen. Door de eeuwen heen werd er in het kader van de aanleg van de Hogesnelheidslijn tussen Amsterdam en Parijs (HSL-Zuid) zal in het Groene Hart tussen Leiderdorp en Hazerswoude een 7 kilometer lange boortunnel worden gerealiseerd. Deze Groene Harttunnel bestaat uit ssn buis voor beide...

A research project was carried out at the Delft University of Technology in order to study the interaction between waves as weil as a current and a muddy bed. For this purpose several experiments were made on two artificial clays, namely China Clay and Westwald Clay. The results of the experiments on China Clay were reported by De Wit (1994). In...

A research project was started at the Delft University of Technology in order to study the interaction between waves as well as a current and a muddy bed. For this purpose several experiments were made on artificial clays. In the present report only flume experiments on China Clay are discussed. In the experiments made special attention was paid...

The rheological behaviour of three artificial muds was determined using a rotational viscometer. First some characteristics of the viscometer used were rneasured. For want of an appropriate calibration tluid, the viscosity of demineralized water was determined. The result agreed very well with what could be expected from literature. Then the...

A research program was started to study the behaviour of cohesive sediments at the Delft University of Technology in 1989. As part of this project a well-provided physico-chemicallaboratory was built within the Hydromechanics Laboratory and adequate instrumentation was purchased. These new instruments and other instruments already present in the...

In this report an overview will be given of the basic properties of (suspended) clay particles. In section 2 the structure of clay minerals will be described. The forces between suspended particles (section 3) and the possible consequences of them, flocculation or deflocculation (sections 4 and 5) will be discussed next. Section 7 will deal with...

Door de grote verkeersdrukte op rijksweg 12 (Den Haag- Utrecht). is het noodzakelijk geworden deze te herprofileren. Dit zal een aanzienlijke verbreding van deze weg tot gevolg hebben. Er zal een nieuwe kruising met de Gouwe nodig zijn. In dit verslag wordt gedacht aan vervanging van de huidige smalle brug door een tunnel in de vorm van een...
