In the southern part of Vietnam, where the lower Mekong Delta is located, coastal erosion problems occur. In the Bạc Liêu province, one of the twelve provinces in the Mekong Delta, the width of the mangrove belt between the sea dyke and the sea is reduced by 100 m in the last four years. By rehabilitation of the mangrove forest, the hinterland...

The eThekwini coastline is a vulnerable coastline subject to chronic erosion and damage due to sea level rise. In 2007 a severe storm caused major physical and economic damage along the coastline, proving the need for action. Umhlanga Rocks is a densely populated premium holiday destination on the eThekwini coastline suffering from similar...

A floating house development project to be constructed in the coast of Hellevoetsluis, in the municipality of Voorne-Putten, is under consideration. Within a project of this nature, several aspects need to be taken into account in order to safeguard the infrastructure against additional loadings to which regular houses are not exposed to....

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 increase of the global population and expanding coastal mega-cities will necessitate an innovative pursuit of the utilization of the ocean space in which mega-floaters will play an important role in the future. These types of structures are very large floating artificial islands that can be used for various facilities and purposes similar to...

The beach in front of the hotel Sirius is suffering from a retreating coastline. Bathymetry and beach profiles were measured. With the data from previous years the long term evolution of the coast was analyzed. The main conclusions were that the beach in front of the Sirius hotel is still suffering from erosion and if this erosion trend...

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...

Due to the growth of their population, urban development and the corresponding expansion of land use, several countries have decided to build artificial islands in the sea to decrease the pressure on the heavily used land space. The reclamation of the land from the sea is already widely applied, however, there is also an attractive new...

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...
