Additional thesis - The exchange and transport of sediment between intertidal zone and backshore are subject of ongoing research in order to assess the dynamic behaviour of sandy coastal systems. How the sediment moves in the coastal system is relevant knowledge for e.g. the Dutch coastal nourishment programme. It is a scientific challenge to...

In order to accurately predict passing vessel interaction forces, different simulation tools have been developed over the years. Many of these are based on a double body flow approach. MARIN (a hydrodynamic research institute located in the Netherlands) developed a simulation tool called the FlowInteraction (FI) module, which is part of the...

The coastal protection system of the Dutch low-lying hinterland is under increasing pressure due to growing population and high economic value combined with climate change and a rising sea level. Supplying sand to dunes, beach and shoreface by means of nourishments is a widely applied technique to increase coastal safety. Climate change and a...

During Abandonment and Recovery (A&R) operations, steel wire ropes (figure 1) can experience torsional deformation. This deformation is a result of the helical configuration and the tension gradient in the rope due to its self-weight. The latter is very high when the ropes are used in deep water operations. Since the static component of the...

After the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, oil was released into the Gulf of Mexico and partly reached the shorelines. Here, it mixed with sand in the surf zone to form sand and oil agglomerates (SOAs). These cm-sized particles are heavier than water and are therefore found on the seabed. Years after the initial formation of these particles,...

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...

An important step in the design process of breakwaters is the laboratorial tests which show the performance of the breakwater. One of the important aspects in the performance is the stability of the armour layer. A common methodology for breakwater testing is a method in which the design wave conditions are simulated in four steps of 1000 or...

The first quay walls were constructed in 2400 BC and were constructed with bricks. Since then, the quay walls have developed a lot. The quay walls nowadays are constructed out of steel, concrete or a combination of both materials. An upcoming material in the field of hydraulic engineering is fibre reinforced polymer (FRP). FRP has several...

The fairway connecting Holwerd and Nes forms the main transport route between Friesland and Ameland (the Dutch Wadden Sea). It consists of several tidal channels that funnel the majority of the tidal currents propagating through the tidal basin. Over the past decades, several channel bends have expanded leading to a fairway length-increase of...

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...

Flooding is the most common and one of the most damaging natural hazards globally. It has severe societal, economic and environmental consequences. Damages from floods are expected to worsen with changing climate and increasing population andwealthworldwide. Within the last decades, advances in computational power and increases in the number of...

A 2Dnumericalmodel is set-up for the tidal bore in the Sittaung River. This model is used to analyse the effect of the bottom friction, bathymetry, tidal range and river discharge on the propagation of the tidal bore. To obtain information about the tidal bore the Sittaung River is visited two times. During the second visit, depth measurements...

In the Netherlands almost 17.500 kilometers of primary flood defenses protect the flood prone areas from inundation. These flood defenses are designed and periodically assessed according to certain design standards which require an average probability of exceedance of 1/1.250 or 1/10.000 per year. From the results of recent assessments, it was...

Over the past centuries natural riverbanks have been transformed into banks with artificial revetments or sheet piles to protect them from erosion, which led to disappearance of important river features for flora and fauna. River restoration projects show that the removal of man-made bank protections may lead to the formation of bars (e.g. Van...

The Colorado River with a total length of 2330 km is located in the Southwest of North America, originating from the Rocky Mountains and flowing into the Gulf of California. In 1963 the Glen Canyon Dam was built to generate hydropower. The construction of the dam caused several significant changes in the river system. One of these changes is the...

In order to meet future energy demand, a more sustainable energy society is essential because fossil fuel reserves are depleting while the total energy consumption worldwide increases. One type of renewable energy which can play a role is ocean energy having the theoretical potential to exceed both current and future human energy needs. This...
