The lock of Hansweert, located in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands, serves as a crucial inland shipping node between the Western Scheldt estuary and the Rhine Delta. The outer harbour of the lock complex provides the connection to the Western Scheldt and accommodates waiting facilities for inland ships. The Western Scheldt is a vital...

Sand waves can have a significant impact on offshore activities, and with the global push for sustainability and more renewable energy sources, these negative impacts will become more prevalent. Sand waves in the North Sea have a height up to a couple of meters and a wavelength between 100 and 1000 meters. The migration or change in asymmetry of...

The objective of this research is to gather more information about a possible relation between the slope angle of a rubble mound breakwater and the wave overtopping at this breakwater. The following research question is covered in this thesis: What is the influence of the slope angle of rubble mound breakwaters on wave overtopping? To answer...

Hydropeaking is a widely applied management practice in the generation of hydropower. When the demand in electricity is high, the operator of a hydropower plant rapidly increases released discharges to meet this demand. Vice versa, when the demand is low, no or less water is released. However, while river regulation practices offer valuable...

This study aims to establish a framework for the growing number of trend analyses that have been performed on river flows in Europe. Most studies apply statistical trend test to fixed periods with relatively short records. Fixed periods are crucial for trend testing, as they provide an appropriate visualisation in a geographical sense. However,...

This work seeks to expand on the research done previously by the WOODY group on the ability of vegetation as a form of wave damping. Specifically in this work, we are looking at pollard willow trees (Salix Alba) and the relationship between the motion of the object and the forces it can induce on the wave flow. This was done by testing a range...

The Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium were hit by heavy and prolonged precipitation in July 2021. As time passed, weather warnings escalated, leading to evacuations due to predicted floods, including in the Rur catchment. It was difficult to forecast the flooding of the Rur, raising the question of which elements are crucial in a flood...

Accumulations of floating debris at culverts and inverted siphons cause partial blockage of the hydraulic structure’s inlet, leading to an increase in head loss that is also referred to as backwater rise. This effect is of high importance in flood management, because backwater rise associated with floating debris accumulations can cause or...

To limit global warming to 2 °C or below, the IPCC emphasizes the need for large-scale carbon dioxide removal (CDR) alongside emissions reductions. There is a growing recognition of ocean-based CDR techniques and expanded research is needed. This thesis investigated the long-term (>100 years) carbon sequestration potential of enhancing the...

Currently, inland waterway safety assessments rely heavily on historic accident data and expert opinions, often lacking comprehensive qualitative and quantitative information. Addressing this gap, this thesis introduces a method based on Automatic Identification System (AIS) data to identify anomalous vessel behaviour for enhancing safety...

The port of Rotterdam is one of the most important ports in Western Europe and via the 'Nieuwe Waterweg' it provides maritime trading between the large hinterland and the rest of the world. To provide port access for the large vessels, the channel and port basins need to be dredged regularly. At the same time, in other locations, sediment is...

This study is an analysis of sand mining in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta (VMD) with the use of the optical satellite data set PlanetScope. This is done with a detection and classification model of sand mining vessels in the VMD. The classification model is based on machine-learning and it is trained with three classes: sand mining vessels, other...

The impact of climate change, particularly the rise in sea levels, obstructs the effectiveness of existing coastal structures. Additionally, climate change can also have an amplifying effect on wind speeds (Takagi & Esteban, 2013). Without proper control, the accumulation of changing environmental boundary conditions could lead to disastrous...

In response to the escalating coastal erosion at the Weg naar Zee region in Suriname, this study explores the beneficial reuse of dredged sediment from the Suriname River. The integral question is, ”What is the feasibility of the beneficial reuse of dredged sediment through sediment nourishment to rehabilitate the growth of mangrove forest on...

The Saigon River, coursing through Ho Chi Minh City, is a vital yet alarmingly polluted waterway. It ranks among the top 50 rivers globally contributing to plastic pollution. This study delves into the complex mechanisms governing the transport of floating plastic within a tidal system, such as the Saigon River.<br/>Our methodology adopts a...

Large parts of the Netherlands lay below mean sea level. An extensive network of flood protection measures is in place to prevent flooding. Periodic safety assessment and reinforcement are required to guarantee a resilient system. Currently, in the Netherlands, an extensive sea dike reinforcement program is underway to meet the safety standards...

When two storms quickly succeed one another, it can be called a twin storm. Storm conditions at the coast can lead to higher water levels and waves that can give rise to dune erosion. Therefore, after a storm the dunes are smaller than before the storm. Dune accretion is a much slower process than dune erosion; it can take weeks to months of...

The Wadden Sea serves multiple roles: it acts as a protective barrier against severe wave conditions, is a natural habitat for diverse flora and fauna and has recreational purposes. This research provides a comprehensive analysis of the intricate morphological dynamics of the Wadden Sea. By implementing various model schematizations, the study...

For the past 2000 years river training works have been performed on the Dutch rivers. These training works have shaped the river system of today. Another result of the river training works, especially over the last two centuries, is a decrease in biodiversity. To protect the biodiversity some floodplains in the Netherlands have been classified...

After overtopping, the most common failure mechanism in the world that leads to a dike breach is the instability of the inner slope. Two stability calculations are required for the semi-probabilistic assessment of inner slope stability. One calculation is without significant overtopping and the other calculation is with significant overtopping...
