Coastal structures with horizontal overhangs are built due to design constraints, but wave loadings substantially increase under these confined geometries. Vertical structure elements, such as steel gates, are vulnerable to damage caused by impulsive wave impacts, potentially exposing the coastal zone to flooding and erosion. Existing formulas...

Accelerated sea level rise (SLR) is predicted to have multiple adverse impacts on the coastal zone, aggravating phenomena such as coastal erosion on sandy coasts. For climate change adaptation planning and informing policy, morphodynamic changes occurring at coastlines are becoming increasingly important. In this study, a calibrated Delft3D...

Velocities derived from X-band radar were compared to depth averaged ADCP measurements in a complex tidal inlet system at Ameland, the Netherlands. Inclusion of depth assimilation and ensemble averaging in radar calculations led to smaller differences between ADCP and radar. The observed differences were clustered and related to water level...

Sandy barriers comprise 12% of coastlines around the world, and most of these barriers enclose tidal bays and lagoons. These systems accommodate human settlements vulnerable to climate change, which offer enough economic, social, and environmental utility to require further research on the impact of climate change and subsequent best management...

Coastal zones all over the world have become heavily populated and developed due to the aesthetic value and diverse ecosystem services that they provide (Luijendijk et al. 2018). In recent years, however, climate change and anthropogenic pressures have exacerbated unprecedented coastal recession, threatening billions of dollars’ worth of coastal...

Seaports are important maritime commercial facilities and key hubs for national and global trades. There is a growing need for seaborne transport and, hence, seaport facilities, especially in emerging economies due to economic and population growth, such as in Africa. In sedimentary environments, port construction may induce coastal impacts...

Across the world, the presence of humans in coastal regions is always increasing. Hydraulic forcing from extreme events is a large risk around the global coastlines, the risk being complicated by the increased human presence along the coasts.<br/>The knowledge that vegetation can be used as a coastal protection measure is not something new. The...

Coastal areas around the world have attracted settlements and human activities since the early stages of the history until nowadays. This has introduced continuous modifications to the natural characteristics of these coastal regions by means of coastal structures and engineering interventions. The design of such coastal structures has evolved...

Rocking behavior of breakwater research was conducted by Centre for Civil Engineering Research and Codes workgroup CUR C70 (1989) and after that no further validation of the research work has been done. In order to understand the rocking behavior and validate the previously conducted research CUR C70 (1989) wave flume test has been conducted in...

Low-lying countries such as Belgium and the Netherlands are naturally susceptible to overtopping wave attacks. Coastal regions are therefore facing the threat of such events causing damage to dike-positioned structures and buildings. Research in this filed is often conducted using scaled-down 2D hydraulic physical models, which introduces so...

Coastal defense mechanisms are an integral part in the safety of infrastructure and communities residing on coastlines around the globe. In long temporal and spatial scales, traditional “hard structures” for coastal defense can become infeasible. Incorporation of soft engineering methods for coastal defense can then be a viable solution....

Spurs-and-grooves (SAG) are a common and impressive characteristic of shallow fore reef areas worldwide. Although the existence and geometrical properties of SAG are well-documented ever since the 50’s, the literature concerning specifically the hydrodynamics around them is sparse. This study provides a characterization of the 3D flow patterns...

In recent years, the use of Xbloc units has increased exponentially. However, the placement of this unit is not always done as randomly as it should be and consequently, the stability of the armor is affected. In order to overcome this problem, Delta Marine Consultants is developing a new armor unit called Xbloc+ that has a regular placement. In...

Predictions of coastal morphology evolution are necessary to assess engineering solutions as well as understand coastal systems behaviors. Among the tools used to predict morphological evolution are the process-based models that make use of physical laws and empirical knowledge. Such models account for a considerable range of coastal processes...

Block mattresses are widely used bed protection elements under non-uniform flows. Previous studies show that the turbulence of the flow plays a key role on the instability of the mattress. However, in the available design equations, the turbulence intensity is included as a magnification factor roughly and qualitatively defined. Consequently,...

The climate goals for 2020, that multiple countries in the world signed, are coming closer. Like many other countries, the Netherlands has difficulties reaching their climate goal. A solution came from the Paris agreement in 2015, which sets new goals for 2030, and eventually for the long term in 2050. This time the Netherlands is eager to reach...

Nowadays, the use of concrete armour units on rubble mound breakwaters designs has become a common practice. Concrete armour units can be placed in a single layer system or in a double layer system and can its placement can be either random or uniform. Recently, Delta Marine Consultants have designed a new armour unit called Xbloc+. This new...

Land reclamations in deltaric areas provide space to meet the demand for a safe place to live and work. Sand, a traditional filling material in some locations is becoming scarcer. An alternative filling material is mud. Mud consists of clay, silt, sand, organic material, water and gas. Therefore, it is a versatile material and difficult to...

It is estimated that 25% of the remaining oil and gas reserves worldwide are held in Arctic regions. The combined effects of a global resource depletion, climate change and technological progress, mean that this natural resource area is now increasingly interesting and commercially attractive. However, numerous challenges are present when it...

Non-breaking wave forces on a cylindrical pile are calculated numerically by solving the three-dimensional Navier Stokes equations in the numerical wave tank of REEF3D. Initially, the numerical wave tank is validated by comparison of the numerical results with the analytical solutions for varying grid density, time step size, numerical beach...
