For this book we have deliberately chosen that the text should follow a more or less logical design procedure for breakwaters. It follows the required design steps from the system level down to the individual crosssection level, and in time from conceptual design to construction. This systematic approach starts at the functional description of...

In this work the feasibility of a numerical wave tank using a hybrid particle-mesh method is investigated. Based on the Fluid Implicit Particle Method (FLIP) a generic formulation for the hybrid method is presented for incompressible multi-phase flows involving large density jumps and wave generating boundaries. The performance of the method...

A large proportion of the world population lives in the coastal zone, which is facing a variety of natural and anthropogenic impacts on its evolution. A better understanding of coastal evolution can be obtained when it is based on an accurate knowledge of coastal dynamics. This thesis aims to study the long-term (hundreds of years) coastal...

The Jiangsu coast is located in eastern China bordering the South Yellow Sea. It is strongly affected by the semi-diurnal tides. Both the tidal range and the tidal current vary greatly in space due to local tidal wave systems and morphologies. The radial tidal current pattern identified at the central coast is suggested to play a primary role in...

NL: Scenario’s zijn belangrijk bij het evalueren van infrastructuur beleid, maar helaas zijn er gegronde redenen om te twijfelen aan de gangbare veronderstellingen ten aanzien van economische groei zoals gehanteerd in vrijwel alle officiële scenariostudies. Dit artikel bespreekt de in de Nederlandse "WLO referentiescenario's" gehanteerde...

This study identifies and unravels the processes that lead to stratification and destratification in the far field of a Region of Freshwater Influence (ROFI). We present measurements that are novel for two reasons: (1) measurements were carried out with two vessels that sailed simultaneously over two cross-shore transects; (2) the measurements...

The main objective of this project is to develop new measuring techniques for providing detailed data on sediment sorting suitable for sand-gravel laboratory experiments. Such data will be of aid in obtaining new insights on sorting mechanisms and improving prediction capabilities of morphodynamic models. Two measuring techniques have been...

Mil-Homens, J. (author)
Longshore Sediment Transport (LST) is one of the main drivers of beach morphology. It works at temporal scales ranging from hours to centuries and at spatial scales ranging from tens of meters to hundreds of kilometres. Episodic, large LST rates can result in important physical impacts such as inlet closure, rapid build-up of ebb/flood shoals,...

Idealized laboratory experiments investigate the glacier–ocean boundary dynamics near a vertical glacier in a two-layer stratified fluid. Discharge of meltwater runoff at the base of the glacier (subglacial discharge) enhances submarine melting. In the laboratory, the effect of multiple sources of subglacial discharge is simulated by introducing...

This paper presents a risk-based method to quantify climate change effects on road infrastructure, as a support for decision-making on interventions. This can be implemented in climate adaptation plans as an element of asset management. The method is illustrated by a specific case in which traffic on a road network is disrupted by the flooding...

For this book we have deliberately chosen that the text should follow a more or less logical design procedure for closure dams. It is emphasized that only the construction aspect of stopping the water movement is considered in this book. This means that only the closing operation itself is treated; the transformation of the closing dam into a...

A stability parameter for rock in bed protections under nonuniform stationary flow is derived. The influence of the mean flow velocity, turbulence, and mean acceleration of the flow are included explicitly in the parameter. The relatively new notion of explicitly incorporating the mean acceleration of the flow significantly improves the...

In this paper we develop a Bayesian network (BN) that relates offshore storm conditions to their accompagnying flood characteristics and damages to residential buildings, following on the trend of integrated flood impact modeling. It is based on data from hydrodynamic storm simulations, information on land use and a depth-damage curve. The...

The motivation for this work stems from the offshore wind industry, where designers are faced with a discrepancy between the available design methods and the typical dimensions of the offshore wind foundations that call for other design approaches. Throughout the years, much valuable work has been performed in the prediction of long, slender,...
