Ligthart, D. (author)
The Ayeyarwady River is a river with large hydrological variations and an abundance of relatively fine non-cohesive sediment, causing the dynamic behaviour of the river with fast shifting channels. This dynamic behaviour, together with the large hydrological variations, is the source of a frequently flooding river with a moderate navigability....

Morphodynamic models are widespread in coastal engineering practice and indispensable to predict the effectiveness of (large-scale) sandy interventions. These models enable quantification of the effects on enhanced safety against flooding and on environmental impact over time, based on physical processes such as hydrodynamics and sediment...

The Rhine ROFI ( region of freshwater influence) is a dynamic area where various processes and timescales come together. Research has shown that stratification caused by the freshwater outflow of the Rhine alters the tidal currents in front of the Dutch coast. In the case of the Netherlands the tide behaves like a kelvin wave, which causes...

This study investigates wave driven onshore sandbar migration. Observations show that sandbars move onshore during mild wave conditions. Literature describes different potential sediment mechanisms that cause this onshore migration, but the dominant cause is still under debate. The goal of the present study is to determine the dominant sediment...

This study describes the stability of rock on a mild slope (e.g. milder than 1:6) under wave loading. This is done because an increasing number of situations occur where mild foreshores are protected from the wave and currents. The empirical stability formula, designed by VAN DER MEER [1988], is not valid for these kind of slopes. Nonetheless,...

In this thesis 6 wave climate reduction methods are described and evaluated. Of these methods, 3 are commonly used in literature and 3 are machine learning methods that are adjusted so that they can be used for the reduction of a wave climate. The evaluation is executed with the use of a Delft3D model of the coast of Durban, South Africa.

The current report aims to understand the hydro- and morphodynamic response of the Western Scheldt in a large sediment dumping operation. This study investigates the estuary’s response to sediment dumping in the Everingen channel area, which is located in the middle of the Scheldt Estuary, The Netherlands. Furthermore, it studies whether these...

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...

East Coast Park is a 15 km long coastal park along the southeast coast of Singapore. It is built on entirely reclaimed land and comprises a sandy shoreline. The beaches along this shoreline are formed due to the implementation of anthropogenic structures all along this stretch of coast through so-called headland control. These structures were...

For many applications in the field of coastal engineering 2D-morphological models are being applied. Due to the large computational effort these models demand it is nearly impossible to include a full wave climate in long-term morphological modeling. This has asked for waveclimate reduction methods in order to reduce the input and consequently...

After the storm surge of 1953, the Dutch Delta project was initiated in order to protect the southwestern part of The Netherlands. A storm surge barrier in front of the Oosterschelde and various dams at the back of the estuary were constructed. These interventions led to a large change of the hydrodynamics of the Oosterschelde: a large decrease...

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...

The Lagos coast has been suffering high rates of erosion since the construction of three harbour moles, i.e. the West Mole, East Mole and the Training Mole, at the tidal inlet connecting the Lagos Lagoon to the South Atlantic Ocean. To provide for a permanent erosion mitigation measure and to create residential and commercial area for circa 400...

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....

The area of the Merwedes is a transition zone between a tide-dominated area and a river-dominated area. With increasing river discharge, the influence of river flow dominates in this part of the Rhine-Meuse Delta. The composition of the river bed of the Merwedes is also a transitional area, because of the presence of both sand and mud. It is...

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...

The aim of this research is to determine to what extend the scour holes limit the sediment transport through the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier and whether or not human adaptations, like sand-nourishments in the scour holes, can have a positive effect on the sediment import. To investigate these scenarios a numerical model (Delft3D) is used...

The area of interest in this study is the closed part of the Holland coast. This is the coastal stretch from Den Helder to Hoek van Holland. Here the coast is not interrupted by tidal inlets like at the Waddeneilanden or Zeeland.Due to erosion and accretion the coast is not always stable. Many investigations have been done on these phenomena...
