The erosion of the seabed in front of coastal structures induced by waves can lead to multiple types of failure instability or function of the structure. On this topic most research has been done into erosion in front of vertical structures. For sloping structures a knowledge gap exists in the understanding of the processes that lead to erosion...

Implementation of nature-based solutions (NBS) in flood defenses is hindered by a lack of probabilistic tools and design guidelines that can be used to assess spatial and temporal variability in these biophysical systems. It is well established that nature-based elements, such as vegetation, attenuate waves, capture sediment, strengthen the...

Salt intrusion poses a threat to the fresh water supply function of inland waterways. How far inland salt intrusion reaches is dependent on a balance of buoyancy forcing, water depth, discharge of the canal and the amount of mixing. Wind, bottom roughness, and sailing ships contribute to mixing. Currently, little is known about the contribution...

Large morphological features, so-called sand ridges, with an average height and length in the order of 10 meters and 3 kilometers respectively are located at future offshore wind farm locations in the Dutch North Sea. Recent literature, considering relatively deep water conditions (kh 1, with k the wave number and h the water depth), has shown...

The pressure to reduce emissions in the sector of inland shipping is increasing. Especially considering emissions of environmental pollutants, the increasing pressure gives rise to the question how to get insight into emissions distributions along an inland waterway network. In this research, a bottom-up method is developed that is able to map...

This thesis describes the development and the characteristics of the coastline along the Dutch coastal zone, managed by Hoogheemraadschap Hollands Noorderkwartier. The coastal zone is a rich environment with multiple stakeholders. These stakeholders use the coastal zone for a range of functions such as safety, nature, business, and recreation....

To reduce the flood risk in areas prone to flooding, possible adaptation measures must be investigated. In this thesis a Python-based framework has been developed that can screen flood adaptation measures as an alternative to the existing analytical method of Royal HaskoningDHV. The framework is limited to the costs and effects on the economic...

High vessel traffic densities, restricted water areas, and low manoeuvrability are common factors that form constraints for the navigating vessels in port areas. While navigating through these areas, vessels get assisted by the Vessel Traffic Service (VTS). VTS operators (VTSO) are monitoring the vessels in ports and provide the navigating...

To optimize steel halls for this thesis, an optimization tool is created. This tool creates a parametric model and optimizes this model to its costs. The connections in the tool are limited to beam-column connections. <br/>The optimization starts with the input variables of the model, the most important input variable is the type of the beam...

The Netherlands is a country prone to flooding. Recent assessments led to the insight that protection levels of many flood defences should be increased. Integrating reinforcement measures is a difficult task as many dikes are situated in densely populated areas. Conventional reinforcement measures include berm construction or the implementation...

IJntema, Jelmer (author)
In recent years, the awareness of climate change and sea level rise has grown. Especially in low lying countries like the Netherlands, with a large river delta with a high economical and natural value, extreme variations in water levels will have great impact. Former used solutions proofed to be expensive and in some cases disturbed the dynamics...

Sandy beaches can be found all over the world and are on the interface between the sea and the land. Important functions of beaches are the protection of the inland to the forces of the sea and providing local opportunities in recreation. The impact of storm events on the beach is therefore an important topic of research especially with future...

Due to climate change and human interventions, saltwater intrusion is becoming a topic of increasing concern worldwide. Salt water intrudes into the Rotterdam Waterway (RWW) by an exchange flow, where the denser sea water propagates landwards at the bottom. The main competing mechanism for this stratified exchange flow is...

The North Sea is a heavily used area, with wind parks, shipping routes, fishing, sand mining, and many future constructions planned. The Dutch Coastal Zone, the area of the North Sea containing the Dutch coast, is home to several natural areas, alongside extensive human-built flood defenses. Maintaining balance between these areas requires that...

There is a lot of uncertainty in climate change developments, and therefore in its consequences. For the flood defence system of the Netherlands, an important consequence of climate change is the sea level rise. Marine locks are large, rigid, and intricate structures, with a required lifespan of at least 100 years, for which often design...

Punchiná reservoir is part of the San Carlos Hydroelectric Power Plant, situated in the Guatapé watershed. The Guatapé river is an affluent of the Samaná Norte river, which in turn is an affluent of the Magdalena river. San Carlos Hydroelectric Project uses the waters from the rivers San Carlos and Guatapé and discharges the turbined flow...

River bars are large-scale bedforms formed by the local deposition of sediments, the length of which scales with the channel width and the height with the water depth. They create suitable habitats for aquatic fauna and riparian vegetation, making them useful in river restoration projects. Understanding the dynamics of river bar development is...

The BAM Tidal Bridge is a proposed bifunctional concept of a bridge connection between two Indonesian islands, and the world’s largest tidal power plant. The wave forcing on the floating structure leads to an undesired dynamic response and a decreased operating reliability. The thesis objective is about designing an additional structure or a...

The Engineering Office of the municipality of Amsterdam is developing six man-made islands in the IJmeer. One of the last islands will be Buiteneiland. The location and orientation of Buiteneiland is been agreed when IJburg was designed. The area of interest of this study is the land-water transition at the east side of the island. The IJmeer's...

Over the recent years, the Dutch Continental Shelf has seen the erection of various wind farms in an effort to counter climate change by replacing fossil-based power plants. Since the majority of these sites use scour protections which have a substantial impact on the surroundings, the Dutch government increasingly stimulates and requires...
