Sutter, V.B. (author)
In this additional thesis a 2D urban flood model in the downtown area of Shanghai was investigated. Therefore a numerical model of Delft3D flexible mesh (DFM) was used. Since the model was investigated from scratch, a lot of data analysis and pre-processing was required to have reasonable input data. As input data a surface elevation map, a map...

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...

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...

Additional thesis - Historical engineering works such as weirs, land reclamation and large scale deepening modified not only the local morphology and hydrodynamics but also tidal characteristics and sediment transport patterns in the tidal river Ems. The loss of intertidal area and ongoing deepening contribute to the flood dominance while...

This report is the result of a study which aims to understand both the source and severity of flood risk in Cartagena de Indias, Bolívar, Colombia. Solutions to the problem are proposed accordingly. The flood risk is found to be severe and urgent enough to demand action. Currently annual damage and negative impact of inundations are severe...

In the southern part of Vietnam, where the lower Mekong Delta is located, coastal erosion problems occur. In the Bạc Liêu province, one of the twelve provinces in the Mekong Delta, the width of the mangrove belt between the sea dyke and the sea is reduced by 100 m in the last four years. By rehabilitation of the mangrove forest, the hinterland...

Additional thesis - The exchange and transport of sediment between intertidal zone and backshore are subject of ongoing research in order to assess the dynamic behaviour of sandy coastal systems. How the sediment moves in the coastal system is relevant knowledge for e.g. the Dutch coastal nourishment programme. It is a scientific challenge to...

A 2Dnumericalmodel is set-up for the tidal bore in the Sittaung River. This model is used to analyse the effect of the bottom friction, bathymetry, tidal range and river discharge on the propagation of the tidal bore. To obtain information about the tidal bore the Sittaung River is visited two times. During the second visit, depth measurements...

Despite several researches about the hydrological and hydrodynamic system of the Guayas region, elementary insight of the total system was lacking. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to create a general overview regarding floods. Besides, basic solutions are proposed for preparing Guayaquil against floods which might be present in the...

Although shoreface nourishments are an increasingly interesting option for coastal managers to counteract coastal erosion, their design is often highly empirical. A better understanding of the way shoreface nourishments interact with the initial beach profile may help to reduce the degree of empiricism in nourishment design. Literature study has...

Additional thesis - The Maeslant barrier was the final piece of the Delta works which protects a large area of the Netherlands. However the present barrier seems to fulfil his function, several Dutch experts have doubts about the system. However the discussion on the Maeslant barrier not being safe enough refers mostly to future scenarios....

Over the last three decades the beach area of Piçarras has undergone large changes. The river Piçarras was fixed which caused severe erosion problems. With large nourishment projects the municipality tried to create a sustainable beach area. However, these nourishments did not form a long term solution, which means that, until the present day,...
