Block mattresses or block mats are, nowadays, very commonly applied as protection in a large range of applications either against flow or wave loads. Specifically, this large range of applications contains offshore pipeline protection and stabilization, erosion and scour protection, protection of embankments and river banks (slope protection)....

In Nederland wordt het steeds moeilijker om bouwdokken, voor het vervaardigen van afzinkelementen van een afzinktunnel, aan te leggen. Daarom wordt uitgeweken naar reeds bestaande bouwdokken, en worden de tunnelelementen over langere afstanden en ook over zee vervoerd. De krachten en momenten die door de golfbelasting, tijdens transport over zee...

Experimental research on the stability of bed material behind a backward facing step. Measured is the stability as a function of the local velocity and the local turbulence (turbulence intensity) due to the eddy formation.

At present no computer model is available that can determine the stability of an inlet or what will happen to the stability after some adjustment of the inlet. This study has the objective to develop a simple model th at combines all major parameters in order to determine the stability of an inlet and the effects of adjustments on the stability...

In VAN GENT [2004] graphs were presented in which the datasets of VAN DER MEER [1988] and VAN GENT ET AL. [2003] were compared, but in this comparison a number of parameters were not correctly transformed into a comparable format. In this M.Sc. thesis after an extensive analysis to the datasets all parameters of the datasets of Van der Meer were...

The devastation caused by Hurricane Ike in the Galveston Bay area (Texas, United States of America) proved the necessity of an improved water defense. Multiple flood risk reduction studies were undertaken. The Texas A&M University of Galveston proposed the Ike Dike, a fortification of the coastal spine to prevent a storm surge from entering the...

The first one who studied the problem of armour layer stability was Iribarren (1938). Iribarren derived stability criteria that were based on the acting physical processes on the slope of a structure. In the stability criteria of Iribarren only the influence of a few structural and hydraulic parameters were taken into account. In 1988 Van der...

The breakwaters of IJmuiden are of a unique design; a riprap core is covered with a thick impermeable asphalt slab. During construction and after completion, slope instability caused extensive damage. Placement of a concrete cube armour layer prevented further damage to the asphalt, but proved to be unstable and required a significant amount of...

Experimental research on the stability of bed protection and transport of stones on such a bottom protection. Investigated were the effects of duration and magnitude of the load, the shape, and placing density of the stones.

Breakwaters with single layer concrete armour are very commonly applied nowadays. Much research is available on the stability of single layer armour units on the seaward slope. However, rear slopes design methods for single layer armour units are rare. On rear side slopes usually similar sized units as on the seaward slope are applied. Limited...

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...

After consulting the "Department of Environment" in Australia it was suggested that an extensive generic study about Tidal Inlets on Littoral drift shores gives them an insight in the processes at work and also the possibilities to improve the stability in order to make tidal inlets suitable for safe navigation. This report describes the most...

Roelse, F.P. (author)
In the last decades shipping has increased significantly, resulting in larger ships with an increasing power in bow thrusters. Due to this increasing power, the hydraulic loads at bottom protection near quay structures has also increased, making a traditional bed protection more expensive. Therefore an alternative design method is suggested in...

For tunnels it is not only important, how the tunnel and the surrounding rock behave during the life time of the tunnel. It is also very meaningful to understand how the tunnel is behaving, while it is under construction. The basis for this thesis is to understand, how the tunnel behaviour, concerning deformation and stability, is for different...

Verdegaal, I. (author)
The permeability of a breakwater is of great importance for the stability of the armour layer. The influence of the structural permeability on the stability of rock armour units was already researched by Van der Meer using the 'notional' permeabiltiy. However, for single layer interlocking armour units the influence core permeability is rather...
