The applicability of the open source model XBeach was tested for pocket beaches in this paper. First, schematized model setups have been used to assess the performance of XBeach qualitatively. It was found that adjustments of the initial bed were required to obtain the expected hydrodynamic conditions. The default sediment advection calibration...

The Netherlands is a low-lying country which is protected against floods by a flood protection system consisting of dikes, dunes and other hydraulic structures. The quality of the flood defense system should be of a sufficiently high level to guarantee protection against a flood. If a flood defense is unsafe, measurements are required to improve...

Additional thesis - Historical engineering works such as weirs, land reclamation and large scale deepening modified not only the local morphology and hydrodynamics but also tidal characteristics and sediment transport patterns in the tidal river Ems. The loss of intertidal area and ongoing deepening contribute to the flood dominance while...

To the North of the city of Concepción in the South-West of Chile, lies the town of Dichato. It is situated on the south-eastern side of Coliumo Bay. The Universidad de Concepción (UdeC) owns a marine concession in this bay, which includes a section of beach and sea for a Marine Biology Station (EBMD), belonging to the Faculty of Natural and...

This report is the result of a study which aims to understand both the source and severity of flood risk in Cartagena de Indias, Bolívar, Colombia. Solutions to the problem are proposed accordingly. The flood risk is found to be severe and urgent enough to demand action. Currently annual damage and negative impact of inundations are severe...

Over one hundred scour holes are located in the Rhine-Meuse delta. These scour holes have relatively large depths and steep slopes and could pose a risk to the stability of river banks and hydraulic structures, especially since some scour holes are still growing. Scour holes develop at locations where either the hydrodynamics or the erodibility...

Floating Production, Storage & Offloading (FPSO) units are extensively utilized in remote offshore areas for deep water developments where a pipeline infrastructure is not an economically viable solution. Traditionally, FPSOs are converted from oil tankers, which entails that they are not equipped with an appropriate mooring system. A spread...

The river Rhine is subject to a multitude of controls imposed by nature and humans. Natural controls refer to climate and tectonics, while human activity is represented by a series of interventions aimed at flood protection, navigation, land reclamation and exploitation of river supplied resources such as hydro energy and sediment. These...

A crown wall is a gravity based L- shaped concrete structure on top of a rubble mound breakwater. Functions of a crown wall are: reduction of wave overtopping, enable transport on the breakwater and placement of pipelines on top of the flat surface. Marine contractor Van Oord was awarded to extend a breakwater with a crown wall on top, located...

In the southern part of Vietnam, where the lower Mekong Delta is located, coastal erosion problems occur. In the Bạc Liêu province, one of the twelve provinces in the Mekong Delta, the width of the mangrove belt between the sea dyke and the sea is reduced by 100 m in the last four years. By rehabilitation of the mangrove forest, the hinterland...

220 miles offshore the West-Australian coast lies the Ichthys Field. In 2013 Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) was contracted to install the umbilicals, risers and flowlines for the Ichthys Project, including the installation of several in-line structures such as in-line tees (ILT) and flow-line end terminations (FLET). The ship assigned to these...

To protect the hinterland, flood defences are often located on the border between water and land. This same border however is also an attractive place to live, which may hamper improvement of flood protections. Closing off a tidal (river) system, especially in case of little discharge, may in this case be a logical consideration. This would...

Wave overtopping in harbour areas is a fairly untreated topic in the context of flood risk analyses. Pragmatic approaches were undertaken to evaluate the possible influence of wave overtopping on the frequency of flooding. However no consensus was reached on how wave overtopping in a harbour area could be quantified. Therefore it is also...

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...

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...

Robustness is a hard-to-grip concept within engineering. This master thesis uses a framework to quantify the level of robustness that has been proposed by the Joint Committee on Structural Safety to assess the influence of the reliability requirement of a structural element. The lock complex at Weurt (the Netherlands) has been used for a case...
