XBeach is a process-based morphological model that has been used for modelling short term behaviour of beaches and dunes. In the past years interest has been shown by researchers and engineers to use XBeach for longer simulation periods (multiple years). XBeach has multiple modules: stationary mode is often used during calm conditions and...

Coastline regression is a significant threat to many coastal zones. Being able to mitigate the erosion while simultaneously improving nature development is something that is increasingly strived for in coastal projects. This report utilizes the building with nature philosophy to explore integrated solutions for a coastal erosion problem in...

The Ayeyarwady River is a river with large hydrological variations and an abundance of relatively fine non-cohesive sediment, causing the dynamic behaviour of the river with fast shifting channels. This dynamic behaviour, together with the large hydrological variations, is the source of a frequently flooding river with a moderate navigability....

The Netherlands is a country where people have to live with water, rather than fighting against it. This philosophy often requires interaction between infrastructure and waterways, where (hydraulic) structures are placed close to or even extending in the waterway, introducing the risk of ship collision. What makes this accidental load so...

A new flood risk approach for design and testing of primary and secondary flood defence structures in the Netherlands relies on the probability of loss of the water retaining capacity. Determining this probability for levees requires a better understanding of consequences of extreme conditions leading to failure, starting with a study of soil....

As a result of increased economic development in Colombia, the pressure on the natural system has increased. The export of natural resources through international ports at both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea causes conflicts between infrastructure and the dynamic behaviour of the coastal system. This Master Thesis focusses on the bay...

Fluctuating oil and gas prices, coupled with initiatives toward energy security, drive the global storage market of oil and gas. A tank farm, often referred to as a terminal, is an industrial facility for the storage of the oil and/or petrochemical products. Vopak's biggest terminal, Vopak Terminal Europoort (VTE), has an immense capacity of 25...

Morphodynamic models are widespread in coastal engineering practice and indispensable to predict the effectiveness of (large-scale) sandy interventions. These models enable quantification of the effects on enhanced safety against flooding and on environmental impact over time, based on physical processes such as hydrodynamics and sediment...

The objective of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the morphological behaviour of a sandy foreshore in the Markermeer, along the Houtribdijk. The research is primarily based on monitoring data obtained from the Building with Nature (EcoShape) project “Pilot Houtribdijk”. The focus is on the morphological development of the...

Field studies with in-situ sediment sampling demonstrate the spatial variability in grain size on a sandy beach. However, conventional numerical models that are used to simulate the coastal morphodynamics ignore this variability of sediment grain size and use a uniform grain size distribution of mostly around and assumed fine grain size. This...

The Netherlands which means “lowlands”, constitutes an area of approximately 41,528 km2. Almost half of those areas are below the sea level. Today, more than 2,400 kilometres of dikes shields the sunken-flat land. Regular safety assessment of the dikes are constantly conducted, and the evaluation determines whether planning or dike...

The Rhine ROFI ( region of freshwater influence) is a dynamic area where various processes and timescales come together. Research has shown that stratification caused by the freshwater outflow of the Rhine alters the tidal currents in front of the Dutch coast. In the case of the Netherlands the tide behaves like a kelvin wave, which causes...

This document describes a study into the influence of alongshore bathymetric variability on currents which form a risk to bathers. Changes to coastal zone management along the Delfland Coast have given rise to questions on the influence of alongshore bathymetric variability on bather risk. Extensive measurement data is available from two...

Abstract: For a design purpose, this study mainly focuses on the channel resistance with different spatial distribution of the vegetation patches. Even under the same blockage factor, the total patch numbers in the channel, the distance between two vegetation patches both in the lateral and longitudinal direction as well as the length ratio of...

A literature survey which concerns a variety of wave generation and absorption methods was accomplished. The survey deals with the methods used for the experiment wave tank and numerical wave tank. Their implementations are also described very briefly. The numerical wave tank (NWT) was set up using the hybrid particle-mesh method with the...

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...

To research if the current practice of mandating individual flood risk assessments supports the goal of an optimal flood risk a case study is performed in this thesis. The flood risk in 2050 is assessed for the liquid bulk storage terminals of the company Vopak located in and near the Botlek area of Rotterdam harbor. The used flood risk...

The applicability of the open source model XBeach was tested for pocket beaches in this paper. First, schematized model setups have been used to assess the performance of XBeach qualitatively. It was found that adjustments of the initial bed were required to obtain the expected hydrodynamic conditions. The default sediment advection calibration...
