Morphodynamic models are widespread in coastal engineering practice and indispensable to predict the effectiveness of (large-scale) sandy interventions. These models enable quantification of the effects on enhanced safety against flooding and on environmental impact over time, based on physical processes such as hydrodynamics and sediment...

Current research on automated vehicles focuses mainly on the drivers of automated vehicles, on its potential to improve the efficiency of traffic operations, safety, congestion and societal benefits, public’s acceptance of automated vehicles as a transport system and the willingness to buy automated vehicles. Nevertheless, there is a research...

Due to the expected depletion of fossil fuels, the development of renewable sources of energy has gotten a lot of attention over the past years. Wind energy, and in specific offshore wind energy, is considered to be one of the most promising sources of renewable energy for the future. Although the costs associated with offshore wind energy are...

Abstract The purpose of this thesis is to assess potential alternative epoxy resins in injected bolted shear connections for a civil engineering application. Research has focused on the application of injection bolts with various resins in a double lap shear connection. In current practice only one resin is allowed to be used due to regulation...

The objective of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the morphological behaviour of a sandy foreshore in the Markermeer, along the Houtribdijk. The research is primarily based on monitoring data obtained from the Building with Nature (EcoShape) project “Pilot Houtribdijk”. The focus is on the morphological development of the...

The main question of this thesis is the result of a survey by ‘provincie Zuid-Holland’ (PZH), that has developed a ‘uniform model’ for the assessment of the structural safety of existing prefabricated culverts. PZH is considering the possibility of using generic parameters to decide on the strength of existing culverts in the area. The province...

Field studies with in-situ sediment sampling demonstrate the spatial variability in grain size on a sandy beach. However, conventional numerical models that are used to simulate the coastal morphodynamics ignore this variability of sediment grain size and use a uniform grain size distribution of mostly around and assumed fine grain size. This...

The Rhine ROFI ( region of freshwater influence) is a dynamic area where various processes and timescales come together. Research has shown that stratification caused by the freshwater outflow of the Rhine alters the tidal currents in front of the Dutch coast. In the case of the Netherlands the tide behaves like a kelvin wave, which causes...

The Netherlands which means “lowlands”, constitutes an area of approximately 41,528 km2. Almost half of those areas are below the sea level. Today, more than 2,400 kilometres of dikes shields the sunken-flat land. Regular safety assessment of the dikes are constantly conducted, and the evaluation determines whether planning or dike...

Investigation after including long term morphological assessments in the Environmental Flow studies. It is the aim of this research to assess the influence of changes in flow regime on the long-term morphology for the Mara river basin, thereby concluding on the significance of these effects for the establishment of the EFAs. Both a long-term...

Existing mathematical models for aerobic granular sludge have focused solely on lab-scale reactors. In this study, an effort was made to adapt these models to simulate the processes of full-scale installations. The model is the first aerobic granular sludge model to use transient radial diffusion and multiple granule fractions. Aerobic and...

The Courier Express Parcel industry is booming business. Final delivery in the business to customer (B2C) parcel market has been one of the main focusses for innovation. The last mile in the B2C market is inefficient and expensive, due to delivery failures, congestion, urban constraints, non-optimum loading rates and regulations. The best...

Automated vehicles (AVs) have been receiving much attention all over the world, where the first fully AVs are already operating on the road network. AVs could not only have a tremendous impact on the urban environment but also on human travel behaviour. The focus of this study is to gain insight into the effects of private highly AVs on drivers’...

This document describes a study into the influence of alongshore bathymetric variability on currents which form a risk to bathers. Changes to coastal zone management along the Delfland Coast have given rise to questions on the influence of alongshore bathymetric variability on bather risk. Extensive measurement data is available from two...

Additional thesis - Due to an expected increase in rainfall intensity in the future because of climate change for the area of Rotterdam, the amount of storm water runoff will increase as well, resulting in higher stress on the sewer system. But until now we don’t fully understand the behavior of a sewer system. This additional thesis should help...

Abstract: For a design purpose, this study mainly focuses on the channel resistance with different spatial distribution of the vegetation patches. Even under the same blockage factor, the total patch numbers in the channel, the distance between two vegetation patches both in the lateral and longitudinal direction as well as the length ratio of...
