Estuaries are complex systems that show a variety of hydrodynamic conditions. These conditions are influenced by bathymetry, geometry, climate characteristics, interacting fresh and salt water flows, and mixing effects caused by winds and wind-waves. The interaction between fresh and salt water flows in combination with mixing effects caused by...

The use of the detached offshore submerged breakwater (SBW) for coastal protection has an increasing popularity due to its low aesthetic impact on the natural environment. Submerged breakwaters however have only rarely been adopted and therefore its efficacy remains largely unknown (Ranasinghe et al. 2010). Shoreline erosion has been reported in...

Double Master of Science in Hydraulic Engineering (Civil Engineering and Geosciences) and Applied Mathematics (Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science) - It is of importance to know how the water is behaving in rivers due to the dangers, such as flooding and eroding of land, it can bring with it. Present day we are still...

In this thesis, a method was developed, with which the infragravity waves and morphological changes of a sandy foreshore are included in the calculation of the probability of dike failure due to wave overtopping. Constructing a natural foreshore in front of the dike can be an attractive and innovative method to decrease the failure probability....

Aquatic vegetation, found in coastal waters and inter tidal areas, has important features for hydraulic engineering solutions, including sedimentation and stabilization of the bed. The increasing demand to predict wave hydrodynamics with aquatic vegetation asks for insight in the mechanisms and improved model methods. Striving to a more...

Controlling the distribution of water and sediment at river bifurcations is one of the main challenges in river engineering and management. This distribution affects the stability of river bifurcations as well as the distribution of flooding risk, navigability and environmental conditions. The governing factors are the hydrodynamics of the two...

Coral reefs are highly valuable structures in many respects and it is increasingly important to understand hydrodynamics and morphodynamics around reefs to be able to better protect them and their hinterland. Flume experiments were performed on a scaled fringing reef in the laboratory facilities of Deltares in Delft. The objective of this thesis...

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...

Objective Due the coastal protection program along the Dutch coast, the groins that first defended the coast against erosion, are now covered under sediment. Due to erosion the covered groins will resurface however. The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of the resurfacing groins on the hydrodynamics and sediment transport....

Coastal lagoons are shallow coastal water bodies separated from the ocean by a barrier and they support a range of natural services that are highly valued by society, including but not limited to fisheries productivity, storm protection, and tourism. Songkhla lagoon is the largest lagoonal water resource in Thailand and Southeast Asia. The...

In 2008 Hurricane Ike flooded large parts of the barrier islands in front of the Galveston Bay near Houston, Texas. The storm surge also entered the bay through the inlets causing great damage along the bay and the port of Houston. Because of the high probability that a hurricane would strike again the “Ike Dike” was developed. The concept...

Coral reefs are highly diverse ecosystems that provide food, income, and coastal protection for hundreds of millions of coastal dwellers. They are found in tropical and semi tropical areas spread throughout South-east Asia, the Caribbean, the Indonesian archipelago, on Australian coasts and in the Pacific islands. Coral reefs are subject to both...

Coastal management and engineering rely increasingly on predictions made by computational numerical models of hydrodynamic and morphodynamic processes. However due to the lack of real data from coastal field measurements the models used, are rarely tested. With the COAST3D measuring campaign at a site near the town of Egmond a data set is...
