The study into sand wave dynamics in South Channel has commenced after large dune forms were observed in monitoring campaigns following the channel deepening project of the Port of Melbourne. The project involved deepening of the harbour berths and channels, but more importantly, it involved the deepening of South Channel in Port Phillip Bay....

Around the world, areas with unique ecosystems are prone to harmful factors deteriorating their environment. Management of these areas need knowledge on the ecological status of these areas, to make decisions for future problems. They need easily accessible information on indicators describing the conditions of these areas. Obtaining this...

Despite several researches about the hydrological and hydrodynamic system of the Guayas region, elementary insight of the total system was lacking. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to create a general overview regarding floods. Besides, basic solutions are proposed for preparing Guayaquil against floods which might be present in the...

The Netherlands recently developed a new risk approach for flood management. The approach changed the safety standards in the Water-Act. The safety standard used to be an exceedance probability of the design water level, and the flood defence was supposed not to fail for all water levels below this level. Since knowledge regarding the actual...

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)....

The main objective of this study is the realisation of a computer tool. The function of the tool is to estimate the required dimensions and quantities of essential container, dry and liquid bulk terminal elements, in an early design phase. As well as to give an estimate of the construction costs of these marine terminals. Terminal element...

It is a well known fact that the international dredging industry is of major importance. As the dredging industry has made a significant contribution to the development of many world economies through the construction and maintenance of harbors, canals, and waterways. The construction and maintenance of waterways depths is a continuous process...

Bangladesh is characterised by its complex river system, which includes the downstream ends of two of the largest rivers in the world: the Ganges and Brahmaputra. Extremely variable flows and fast morphological changes are the principal characteristics of this system, which presents exceptional challenges for river engineering. Distributary...

South of Vancouver, Canada, at the western front of the Fraser Delta lies Sturgeon Bank. The marsh on this intertidal area supports migratory birds and salmon, and it is part of the coastal protection of the city of Richmond. The marsh has faced severe recession of up to 500 m between 1989 – 2011 after having been stable for over 50 years. This...

Although shoreface nourishments are an increasingly interesting option for coastal managers to counteract coastal erosion, their design is often highly empirical. A better understanding of the way shoreface nourishments interact with the initial beach profile may help to reduce the degree of empiricism in nourishment design. Literature study has...

Additional thesis - The Maeslant barrier was the final piece of the Delta works which protects a large area of the Netherlands. However the present barrier seems to fulfil his function, several Dutch experts have doubts about the system. However the discussion on the Maeslant barrier not being safe enough refers mostly to future scenarios....

Over the last three decades the beach area of Piçarras has undergone large changes. The river Piçarras was fixed which caused severe erosion problems. With large nourishment projects the municipality tried to create a sustainable beach area. However, these nourishments did not form a long term solution, which means that, until the present day,...

In many coastal seas, wind-generated waves produce a strong bottom orbital velocity which stirs up sand from the bottom. This process strongly influence sediment transport and bottom evolution. State-of-the-art morphodynamic models traditionally represent the stirring of sand by irregular waves in a highly parametric way. For instance, the...

Since 1986, the northern part of the Netherlands, particularly the Province of Groningen, experienced around 1000 registered minor earthquakes. The cause of these earthquakes is gas extraction. This type of earthquake, caused by human influence, is called induced earthquakes. The Netherlands is not located in a historically seismic active area,...
