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...

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...

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,...

The aim of this paper is to explain the need to organize the development of standard protocols for communication about major public risks. Tragic events, such as inadequate earthquake preparedness or great unnecessary losses of life due to public misunderstandings underline the importance of such protocols to protect the public and support...

This report intends to stimulate the discussion about enhancing and tuning the application of the traditional method for engineering design projects for educational purposes at Delft University of Technology - and possibly for the engineering practice as well. It aims at creating awareness of putting the design activities in a logical order and...

This technical report sketches the main development of the flood defence system in the Netherlands. It concentrates on the establishment of the flood safety level and flood risk reduction strategies. First developments in the study of loading and soil properties until 1960 are described in Chapter 2. The storm surge of 1953 accelerated the...
