Wave climate in harbours determines for a significant part the efficiency of harbour operations. A good prediction of the hydrodynamics is therefore regarded as indispensable, which is often done by means of advanced numerical modelling. This study is a part of the Joint Industry Project XBeach. The goal of this research is to determine the...

Uncertainties about climate change and the energy market constitute a major challenge in designing a pumping station. To tackle this challenge, a robust design is needed, that performs satisfactory under a wide variety of future conditions. Multi-Objective Robust Simulation Optimization (MORSO) was applied, to create a robust re-design for...

The investigation into the dynamic behavior of a cable during installation was done with the aim of improving cable installation for safety, operational and commercial value. In order to increase the operational limit of the vessel during cable installation, the investigation into improvement systems was desired. The workability of a vessel...

The offshore wind market is growing rapidly and will take a significant share in the total energy supply. Offshore wind energy is usually generated by large wind turbines. To transport the generated energy to transformer platforms or the mainland large sub-sea power cables are used. These cables are installed by means of a cable installation...

The objective of this research is to explore the feasibility of detecting sandy beaches at a high spatial level, using satellite images. A pixel-based classification scheme of the four classes selected (sand, mud, vegetation and gravel) is conducted, using Landsat 8 Top-of-Atmosphere images (years 2014 and 2015) and Google Earth Engine. Moreover...

To counteract relative sea level rise, Rijkswaterstaat nourishes the Dutch coast with sand. This sand spreads out over the shoreface zone, beach and dunes. One of the nourishment types is the shoreface nourishment. In this thesis, data of historical shoreface nourishments along the Dutch coast is analysed to find the factors that influence this...

Due to the removal of mangrove forests, the coastal zone of Demak district has suffered from severe erosion. One of the proposed solutions to restore the sediment balance and encourage mangrove re-establishment, is the construction of semi-permeable dams. This study aims to optimise the design of such structures. A 2DH site-specific model was...

The strength of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) will decrease due to climate change. However, the magnitude of this decrease is still under debate, since uncertainties exist about the driving mechanisms of the sinking branch of AMOC. Conceptual models have shown that sinking is located at the lateral boundaries of the...

Mobile jack-up units remain favourable in the offshore industry due to its capability to self-install and ability to work in moderate water depth. Prior to its mobilization to the site location, it is required to have a site-specific assessment (SSA). The SSA will identify any potential problems related to foundation conditions during...

Navigation locks are used to transport vessels between waterways with different water levels. In the nearby future many navigation locks will be renovated or replaced. During the design of a new lock still some unknown factors are encountered. One of these factors is the vibration of the valve. The valve is part of the filling and emptying...

Coastal inundation models are benefited by timeliness of the predictions, not only when it comes to real-time forecasting but also considering risk assessment studies and sensitivity analysis. Numerical models however are often subjected to a trade-off between accuracy and efficiency, especially when dealing with large geographic scales. In this...

Renewable energy sources, like wind- and solar power, are expected to generate a greater part of the electricity production in the Netherlands each upcoming year. Besides all the advantages, the energy supply of these renewable energy sources fluctuates heavily as they mainly depend on the amount of wind and sun. Therefore, the electricity...

Coastal zones are extensively used by humans for work, living and recreation. About three billion people live and work within a couple of hundred kilometers from a coastline. In addition the coast is an important breeding zone for marine species. This is also the case at Lake Bardawil. Lake Bardawil is a relatively large lake on the north-west...

Although mangrove forests have proven to contribute to wave dissipation significantly, these ecosystem are threatened mainly by the expanding aquaculture. International or nationwide applied greenbelt policies are often used for the preservation of the mangroves and hence the flood hazard reduction, without taking local (hydrodynamic) conditions...

To determine the nominal diameter of armour rock for a rubble mound breakwater, the ‘Van der Meer’-formula is frequently used. It requires the so-called 'notional permeability' parameter P, which has been defined for a limited number of structures. Often designed structures deviate from these defined lay-outs. To determine the notional...

Fire Island has been monitored since Hurricane Sandy (2012). During that period, Fire Island showed recovery (accretion on the island). Behaviour of the recovery is not yet well-known. Main processes during the recovery are also not known. Therefore, the emphasis of this thesis is on the understanding of the main processes of the recovery of...
