The Port of Imbituba, located in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil, is a privately operated port in Brazil. In the past, the port has been upgraded in order to meet the future growth in the size and number of vessels. The main breakwater and the quay were elongated and the waterway was deepened. In the first six months of 2014, a large...

Maintenance dredging, as a result of port and channel sedimentation, can have a large share in overall maintenance costs of a port. A smart design can minimize the amount of maintenance dredging and thus improve the profitability of a port but also the long-term sustainability. As the preliminary design stages are often decisive for the final...

The city of Itajaí is located in the province of Santa Catharina in Brazil. The people of Itajaí have been coping with flood risk for the past decades. During normal conditions the Itajaí-Açu River is a rather calm river that is used for navigation and the harbour area. Recovering from the past two floods in 2008 and 2011 have cost more than...

Problem definition The city Mar del Plata has one of Argentina's largest ports and biggest seaside beach resort. After the construction of the port, a steadily growing sandbank appeared in the port entrance and considerable erosion occurred on the northern beaches. To warrant the accessibility of the port, frequent maintenance dredging is needed...

Sedimentation in reservoirs is a consequence of constructing a barrier in a flowing river, which results in a decrease of the transport capacity of the river. The storage capacity of the reservoir decreases due to the accumulation of sediments and the river downstream starts to erode due to the disturbance of the sediment balance. Water...

Student project report, in cooperation with Smith-Warner International Ltd. (SWIL), Kingston, Jamaica. At this moment the shipping channels in Kingston Harbour, Jamaica, slowly accrete. When the harbour is expanded, the local and global sediment transport is likely to change. During this project it is investigated whether these changes are...

Embedding of subsea pipelines for protection purposes is usually done in a ‘Trench – Install – Backfill’ operation. The pipeline can also be embedded after it is installed on the seabed. This method is called post-trenching. When using a trailer suction hopper dredger for post-trenching, a large water jet erodes the soil underneath the pipe...

Siltation of harbour basins and navigation channels is a serious problem in the port of Rotterdam as well in many other harbours all over the world. Due to siltation, basins and channels require frequent maintenance dredging to guarantee safe navigational depths. The costs associated with these dredging activities are quite high. To keep the...

An overdose of sediment from the Cilalawi River is going into the reservoir Waduk Jatiluhur. This is resulting in the problem of reservoir capacity reduction. With water still coming from different rivers, the future will be inundation. In this matter the recommendation for this problem is check dam(s) and changing land use, stated by the local...

The harbor of Surgidero de Batabano is a harbor that lies in the Gulf of Batabano in the South-Western part of Cuba. It serves as a connection between the main land of Cuba and the islands 'Isla de la Juventud' and Cayo Largo. The Batabano harbor suffers from sediment accretion. The accretion of sediment is harmful to port operations, since the...

The Lai Giang inlet located in Binh Dinh province incorporates various features of the estuaries in the Central part of Vietnam. Belonging to the micro-tidal and wave-dominant coast and influenced by the monsoon regime, the inlet has a seasonal character. During the dry season, as the river flow diminishes, the wave action causes high level of...

The study focuses on the impact of human interventions on the natural behaviour of estuaries in response to sea-level rise. In particular it focuses on the affect of managed realignment on the critical sea level rise (SLRcrit) for the Poole Harbour. Numerical model ASMITA (Aggregated Scale Morphological Interaction between a Tidal inlet and the...

Rijkswaterstaat and the Dutch contractors have many years of experience in the removal of silt and sand from the Rotterdam harbour. In all those years a great deal of valuable experience has been gained with the behaviour of silt in the harbour. They never succeeded, however in making an estimation/prediction of the amount of sedimentation which...

In this study the river migration model MIANDRAS has been applied to simulations of the planform changes of the river Allier, a tributary of the river Loire in France. The Allier is a very dynamic and natural river system with braided and meandering river sections. Two meandering reaches of the Allier, located between Varennes-sur-Allier and...

Vermindering door aanpassing van de vormgeving van jachthavens 't Steel en la Bonne Aventure. Jachthavens aan rivieren slibben steeds verder dicht. AIs gevolg hiervan lopen de kosten voor het beheer van een dergelijke haven zo hoog op dat enkele havens misschien zelfs moeten sluiten. Daarom is er landelijk een onderzoek gestart om te bezien of...

Om flora en fauna de kans te geven zich langs scheepvaartwegen te vestigen en voort te planten zijn natuurvriendelijke oevers nodig. Voor kanalen is een speciale natuurvriendelijke oever ontworpen : de natte strook. Tijdens onderzoeken naar het functioneren van de natte strook is een verondieping hiervan geconstateerd, hetgeen, in verband met...

At the Cao Jing district in Shanghai, China, a landreclamation project is planned. The object of this project is to stimulate the natural process of sedimentation. This report comprises the results of a study concerning the optimum lay-out of dikes in the reclamation-area (see Fig. 0.1 and 0.2). In this report particularly the influence of the...
