Gijsman, R. (author)
Relative sea level rise and climate change, but also the migration of the growing world population to the coast, continuously increase the pressure on the coastal system. In combination with the increased awareness for sustainability, the interests in the coastal zone become integrated and complex. Integrated Coastal ZoneManagement (ICZM)...

The Belgian Meuse is a river with a relatively low flood risk. The floodplains are narrow, and the estimated impact is not large until the flood reaches a magnitude of a once in a 200 years event. Flooding along the Belgian Meuse could however have an effect on the flood safety in the Netherlands, since there the flood defences are dimensioned...

Turbulence plays an important role in a broad range of engineering applications. In the industry RANS simulations are a common method for predicting turbulent flow. A broad range of RANS turbulence models have been developed over the past decades. For the assessment of complex three-dimensional flow fields Reynolds Stress Transport Models are a...

The objective of this study is to determine whether a floating terminal could be a suitable and feasible solution for the realisation of a new berthing location for the cruise ships of the future. This feasibility study is based on the amount of downtime of a terminal due to excessive motions because of wave loading. Therefore, this study...

Large parts of the Netherlands are exposed to the threats of flooding due to the influence of high water coming from the North Sea region, due to high discharge of rivers like the Meuse and Rhine or due to a combination of North Sea water levels and river discharges. In order to cope these threats, strategies are developed in the Delta Program...

Rijkswaterstaat asks whether and how navigation locks can be standardized and if it could result in cost savings. This graduation work focused on finding how one could standardize one part of the navigation locks, namely the lock gate. Besides, finding an innovative idea for the lock gate was also part of the agenda. This resulted in the design...

This study has as main objective to `make recommendations for improvement of the objective evaluation of the effectiveness of the Sand Engine'. The Frame of Reference methodology, a tool developed by Van Koningsveld (2003), is used to map the evaluation of effectiveness. This approach is used descriptively as well as prescriptively. A...

The Van der Meer formula for amour stability takes the Iribarren number, number of waves and damage level into account. It also contains a factor P which describes the “notional permeability” of the breakwater. This factor is based on the fact that a more permeable structure dissipates more energy and hence requires less heavy armouring. Its...

Coral reefs are hard structures that front many coasts in tropical and subtropical climates and protect them against wave attack and erosion. Despite reducing incoming wave energy by up to 98%, coral reefs are not a guarantee that mainland or island coasts are safe from being flooded. This was demonstrated by a series of wave-driven flooding...

In the last decades, induced earthquakes were caused by the extraction of gas in the Dutch province of Groningen. Both magnitude and frequency of these earthquakes are expected to increase in the following years, causing a threat for the flood defence system. To guarantee the safety against flooding, it is required to take the influence of...

Floating structures as spar, semi-submersibles and TLP have been proposed for offshore wind turbines for deep waters (>60m) according to the report of Arapogianni, Moccia, Williams, & Phillips (2011), where bottom fixed sub-structures are technically and economically not feasible. Several floating concepts have been designed and just some of...

People are already living on water for centuries in some places around the world. However, the concept of building on water has been reintroduced with a new idea in the last two decades. The new idea is to realise a very large floating structure which is as big as a city. Instead of multiple independent floating houses forming a floating...

A large part of the flood defences in The Netherlands does not meet the present safety standards. In 2014 the delta programme has proposed new safety standards, which are based on the flood risk approach. These new safety standards will for a lot of river dikes be stricter than the currently prevailing safety standards. A lot of work has to be...

The rivers in the South-West of The Netherlands flow over an erosion-resistant bed, consisting of peat and clay, overlying non-cohesive sediments. As they are experiencing general incision, the erosion resistant layer becomes thinner and sometimes locally breaks, exposing the more easily eroded non-cohesive sediments. Consequently sudden scour...

A dike is designed for an extreme event which greatly exceed the situation under daily circumstances. The expected loading during such an event is, however, difficult to estimate. Inherent uncertainties in nature and epistemic uncertainties in models and statistical data impede a clear verdict about the exact loading on a dike. Consequently,...

Seaports are often protected against waves and currents by rubble mound breakwaters. At the interface between outer breakwater slope and seabed a toe structure is often build, which provides stability to the outer slope. The toe consists of a relatively small heap of rock. Since 1977 dedicated studies are made to the stability of these rock...

Due to Shanghai’s unique location, it is sensitive to sea level rise and land subsidence, which are directly related to urban flood protection. Flooding of Shanghai can be caused due to the following three factors: storm surge by typhoon, high tidal levels and sustained higher water levels in the Yangtze River and the Huangpu River as a result...

As the LNG market continues to grow internationally, Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRU’s) have become an increasingly important component as governments and private companies strive for faster, cheaper and more flexible means of re-gasifying. In order to have a FSRU mooring system which is equally fast deliverable, standardization...

The aim of this research was to develop an interdisciplinary framework suitable for engineering purposes that connects natural processes such as wave propagation, aeolian transport, oxidation process or chemical reactions with associated critical measurable (a)biotic parameters like a rip current, beach width, canopy height density, salinity...
