From previous engineering projects it turned out that it is difficult to determine the transmitted wave height of floating breakwaters without performing physical models or using numerical models. In this thesis it is investigated which steps should be taken during the preliminary design process in order to predict the effectiveness (wave...

Floating breakwaters (FBs) have been widely used as an alternative solution to protect coastal sites especially small harbors and certain areas which are not suitable for rubble mound breakwaters. Floating breakwater cannot completely stop the incident wave action. Instead, it attenuates the wave action by partially transmitting, partially...

This thesis focuses on wave overtopping at rubble mound breakwaters with a non-reshaping berm. The research was aimed at gaining insight into the influence of a permeable berm on the overtopping behaviour. Moreover it was desired to validate existing prediction methods for the spatial distribution of overtopping for breakwaters with a non...

The coast of Bulgaria is subject to erosion. Because of this fact, around the town of Balchik, which is situated on the Black Sea coast, almost no sandy beaches are present. Last years there have been vast tourist developments in and around Balchik. Because of these developments, the province demands solutions to adapt coastal protection...

The sport of surfing has increased tremendously in popularity in the last decade and surf breaks around the world are progressively getting overcrowded with surfers. This overcrowding is an annoyance to surfers themselves since surfing is an individualistic sport, one wave for one surfer. This coastal problem has been addressed by science...

Humans have been using ships to transport goods and people around the globe for hundreds and thousands of years. In all cases harbours have been critical for the exchange of goods and have played a significant role in the development of countries. Initially, harbours were located in sheltered natural bays; later breakwaters were used to provide...

Compared to land, rail and air, sea transport has proven to have the largest contribution to the transport of goods and is witnessing a continuous growth over the years. The existing ports are dealing with an increasing flow of goods and the transporting vessels, resulting in capacity problems. New innovations and technology are needed to...

It is foreseen that the future expansion of the Port of Rotterdam will face the problem of lack of space. A typical Dutch solution to create the necessary area for harbour and industrial terrain, is reclamation of land from the sea. This can be achieved by expanding Maasvlakte I with Maasvlakte 2. The exact amount of required terrain is subject...

Onderzoek naar de invloed van drijvende golfbrekers op de kust van Delfland. Om de werking te zien van het zanddiode-principe in te zien, is zowel voor het langstransport als het dwarstransport, een mathematisch model toegepast op de Delflandse kust. Uit de berekeningen van het langstransport kwam naar voren, dat het mogelijk was om het netto...

A study has been conducted to investigate the wave attenuation characteristics and the mooring forces of a new concept of a floating breakwater concept i n a three-dimensional wave situation with regular waves. A literature study showed that the mooring forces of a floating breakwater in a two dimensional wave situation hardly had been studied....

This study for a service port in Beira Harbour can be divided into three different parts. These parts will be discussed below in the sequence in which they have been carried out. The first part consists of the preparations for the journey to Beira and the actual site investigation. In Beira a site investigation had been carried out to obtain all...

Deel II bevat het derde deelverslag uit maart 1988 waarin de dynamische golfbreker constructief wordt uitgewerkt. En waarin ook een kostenschatting van de dynamische golfbreker in het Ekofisk veld is gemaakt. De dynamische golfbreker is een golfdempingssysteem bestaande uit een groot aantal boeien die onder het zeeoppervlak verankerd worden, en...

The purpose of this report is to find out which floating breakwaters can be utilized in open sea conditions and what can be expected of them. Since every breakwater interferes with the energy of the waves, it is logical that a probable power generation function of floating breakwaters is also investigated. This report is a global review of the...
