Pipelines and cables on the sea bottom are usually protected by a cover of dumped rock. In case of maintenance or removal works, this cover has to be removed in order to expose the pipeline. This removal can be performed by means of a mass flow excavation process, created with a submerged jet flow. However, the exact erosion processes of a...

Sand dikes have a sand core and a clay layer to protect the core against erosion. It is not unlikely that this layer fails due to several failure mechanisms, exposing the sand core to water. This can be catastrophically when water is overtopping the dike. In case the protective cover fails, water can flow over the core and erode the sand,...

The Afsluitdijk is unable to withstand the future conditions that belong to an annual probability of occurrence of 1/10 000 per year for water level and wave conditions. Solution of Rijkswaterstaat is to strengthen the dike according to the principle of the wave overtopping resilient dike (NL: Overslagbestendige dijk). Therefore the Afsluitdijk...

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...

In this study, a probabilistic vulnerability assessment to the impact of storms in the coast of Thrace, Greece was carried out. To this end, the methodology presented by Bosom and Jiménez (2011) has been applied with some modifications. The introduced modifications, for this work, were the use of a different run-up model to deal with the...

This research focusses on the behaviour of fine particles which pass through the armour layer of bed material of the upper and middle reaches of a river. When the fine particles are entrained in the armour layer, it is described as ‘winnowing’ or vertical entrainment. A river bed generally consists of a coarse surface layer, which is the...

This master thesis aims to determine the best design option and the feasibility of an artificial sandy beach along the Old Boulevard of Batumi, Georgia. The coastline south of Batumi is affected by erosion problems. The coastal stretch between the port in the north and the Chorokhi River south of Batumi should be protected. In 2010 Alkyon...

Due to the closure of the Haringvliet in 1970 as part of the Delta works and the opening of the Beerdam in 1997, the course of the tidal flow in the Rhine-Meuse delta has changed. The tidal flow from and towards the Haringvliet is now completely taking place through the branches that connect the Haringvliet with the Nieuwe Maas and Nieuwe...

The Langmann reservoir is part of the hydropower system in the river Teigitsch and in the reservoir loss of storage volume occurs. The reservoir was therefore flushed, but recently no permission is granted. The reason is the high sediment concentrations that have negative effects on the downstream region. An optimization of the flushing...

The erosion problem at the Senegambia area (The Gambia) is the subject of this thesis. The Senegambia area is the largest Tourism developed area which contributes significantly to the economy of The Gambia. In November 2003 Royal Haskoning has constructed a beach nourishment of 1,000,000 m3 as an erosion buffer with a lifetime of 10 to 15 years....

It is common practice to protect subsea pipelines by embedding them into the soil. Trenches can be made before or after the pipelines have been laid. In the latter case, the excavation process is called post-trenching. The essence of post-trenching, as handled in this thesis, is erosion of sand by a water-jet. The literature study focused on the...

Against the background of enhanced hydraulic loads due to climate change there will be a need for improvement of the flood defence system in the Netherlands in the future. These days there is a growing interest in grass as a dike cover because it is a cheap and a sustainable dike protection. Yet at the moment there is a hiatus in the knowledge...

Groins are old and intuitive means of reducing erosion and are found along the coast worldwide, although according to CEM (Coastal Engineering Manual 2003), “they are probably the most misused and improperly designed of all coastal structures”. The original purpose of groins was to reduce local erosion, that is, to hold the width of beach in...

Kebede, A.S. (author)
Coastal zones are highly vulnerable to climate change and its variability. Future projections of global climate change suggest that relative sea-level rise and increased storm frequencies could lead to significant increases in coastal flooding and shoreline erosion. Associated with this, it is likely that coastal hazards can have the potential...

The majority of population in the Netherlands live well below the mean sea level. At some locations people and infrastructures are only protected from the sea by a narrow stretch of sandy beaches and dunes, so reinforcement works will be necessary to prevent a break through during storm surges. Therefore it is necessary to study problems...

In Nederland wordt, ter vervanging van de huidige ontwerpmethodiek op basis van een overschrijdingskans, gewerkt aan een nieuwe, probabilistische ontwerpnorm voor de zee- en rivierdijken. Deze nieuwe norm wordt gebaseerd op een risicobenadering. Hierbij bestaat het risiko uit de kans op een overstroming, gecombineerd met de schade die daardoor...

The subject of this master thesis is to present the processes taking place at the erosion of a fluid mud layer due to entrainment, to carry out experiments in an annular flume and compare the results of these experiments with a numerical model, which has been elaborated at the TU Delft. The report can be devided into five parts: physical and...

Visakhapatnam is one of the major ports along the east coast of India. An outer harbar in 1976 is constructed to accomadate large ships and to meet the requirements of the ever growing industries of Visakhapatnam. For the maintainance of the Visakhapatnam outer harbour(VOH) two breakwaters are constructed at the south and east end of the harbar....

This is not the main report, but the partial report. Portugal has a coast of approximately 800 km containing a lot of interesting coastal phenomena, such as estuaries, land spits, rock coasts, lagoons, cliffs and rias (areas af sandbanks and canals in open connection with the sea). Also a lot a different harbours can be found along this coast....
