River systems are vastly changing environments, not only due to natural process, but also human intervention plays an important role. With the many different river functions at play, large amounts of maintenance budgets are associated with river management. For decision makers it is important to know expected costs or losses and the spread...

The study into sand wave dynamics in South Channel has commenced after large dune forms were observed in monitoring campaigns following the channel deepening project of the Port of Melbourne. The project involved deepening of the harbour berths and channels, but more importantly, it involved the deepening of South Channel in Port Phillip Bay....

Structural vibrations are a known cause of damage to offshore structures and equipment. A Cutter Suction Dredger (CSD) is a dredge vessel known to vibrate heavily during operation. Primary cause of these vibrations is the cutting process, performed to cut and excavate soil from the seabed. A component prone to damage is the cutter ladder, a...

There are many locations where the accumulation of mud poses a problem. In lakes it can have a negative influence on the ecological situation and in port basins it can hinder traffic. Usually these mud deposits are removed periodically with regular dredging vessels. Looking at the continuous nature of the mud deposition and at the trend of an...

Over the last centuries, Dutch rivers such as the Rhine have been heavily trained for the purpose of the safe discharge of water, sediment and ice, and navigability. After the notorious flood events of 1993 and 1995 along the Rhine, new large-scale river works were initiated, such as the Room for the River (RfR) programme, to increase flood...

Large-scale river projects are executed on the Dutch rivers to meet increased flood conveyance standards. Because the projects bring variation to the standardised river profile, they are expected to induce increased river dynamics. The consequences are higher dredging costs and more disruption to inland navigation. All river intervention plans...

=Introduction= Worldwide there is an increasing amount of dredging activities, due to increasing demand for transport of goods over the world. These project are more and more near sensitive nature reserves and thereby a potential threat of biodiversity; which is a major concern for port developers, authorities, environmental organizations and...

Dredging and reclamation works are known to generate significant amounts of turbidity. In most coastal zones around the world, the resulting clouds of suspended fine sediment bring along environmental risks. Dredging contractors take mitigating measures to prevent free spreading of turbidity, which is usually also demanded by their clients and...

The Maasvlakte II project is a joint venture between Boskalis and Van Oord. During the construction, they have measured the relative density for different kind of work methods, by making cone penetration tests. The result of those measurement is, that the measured relative density for the Maasvlakte II project is higher than the values that can...

Rijkswaterstaat is responsible for maintaining the fairway of the river Waal for navigation for more than a hundred years. In the past problem areas, which cause hindrance for navigation and block the fairway, were prevented with structural measures. Dredging was used as a last resort. In 2005 the desired fairway depth was increased from BRV -2...

The Westerschelde estuary in the South-West of the Netherlands displays two meandering flood and ebb channels separated by shoals. The system of flood, ebb channel and shoal between two channel crossings form a morphological cell. The stability of the serial cell system formed by the Westerschelde is important for the navigation route to the...

Royal Boskalis Westminster nv is an international group with a leading position in the world market for dredging services. In most practical cases a jet installation or a big discharge aperture is used for the fast unloading of a load of sand. When a relative small discharge opening, without the use of a jet installation, is used to unload a...

De sleephopperzuiger is een vrijvarend schip dat natte grond verzet. De sleephopperzuiger kan zijn lading lossen door deze via de boeg door een nozzle (tromp) te lanceren. Deze losmethode heet rainbowen. Rainbowen van medium en grof zand is gebruikelijk, wat wil zeggen een korreldiameter van 200 µm tot 2000 µm. Bij rainbowen bestaat er grote...

Determining the way to make a reclamation project with many excavation areas or borrow areas, and several pieces of dredging equipment at minimum costs takes too much time to do by hand. A linear programming application is made to support the allocation of excavation areas and pieces of equipment to reclamation areas. Such an application was...

De rivier de Waal is voor Nederland de belangrijkste verbindingsroute in het goederenvervoer over water. De verwachting is, dat in de toekomst zowel het aantal scheepvaartbewegingen als de getransporteerde vracht per schip aanzienlijk zullen toenemen. Om de veiligheid en vlotheid van het transport te kunnen blijven garanderen is het Waalproject...

De Waal is de meest bevaren rivier van Europa, jaarlijks wordt er zo'n 150 miljoen ton vracht over getransporteerd. Dit zal de komende 10 jaar met 40% toe nemen. Rijkswaterstaat heeft om de bevaarbaarheid en veiligheid te kunnen blijven waarborgen het Waalproject opgezet. Hoofddoelstelling van dit project is het vergroten van de vaargeul bij OLR...

In de baggerpraktijk gaat het vooral om de hoeveelheid zand die geladen kan worden en de tijd die daarvoor nodig is. Om de kosten van het project te kunnen bepalen, is een nauwkeurige schatting van het benodigde aantal beunladingen gewenst. Het bepalen of berekenen van porienvolumes in een beun levert de nodige problemen op. Daarom wordt vaak...

De concentratie van het opgezogen zandwatermengsel en de mate van turbulentie in het beun van een sleephopperzuiger zijn van grote invloed op de snelheid van bezinken van het zandwatermengsel in het beun. Om de kennis van deze invloedsfactoren op de snelheid van bezinken te vergroten is een proefopstelling gebouwd waarin de bezinking van...

Invloed van turbulentie en korrelverdeling op het bezinkproces. Voor het optimaal beladen van sleephopperzuigers is het belangrijk om inzicht te hebben in de processen die plaats hebben in het beun van een sleephopperzuiger. Een van de deel-processen is het bezinken van zand in een hoog geconcentreerd zandwater mengsel onder invloed van...
