Erosion of the cliffs at the Point Grey Peninsula threatens important infrastructure and buildings at UBC. In order to tackle this problem, UBC launched a comprehensive project called Living Breakwaters. This project is part of Living Breakwaters and aims to act as a transversal element among different expertise, integrating these...

'De Slufter' is a nature conservation area located in the Northwest of the Dutch Wadden island Texel which is inundated with seawater during storm events. The landward side of De Slufter is a sand dike which is part of the primary coastal defence ring of the island. HHNK, which is responsible for the coastal safety of Texel, currently relocates...

The consortium Projectorganisatie Uitbreiding Maasvlakte (PUMA), consisting out of Van Oord and Boskalis, constructed a hard sea defence for the protection of Maasvlakte 2, which is the expansion of the Port of Rotterdam. This hard sea defence consists of a Dynamic Rock Slope (DRS) with a Block Dam (BD) situated in front of it. The BD is build...

The summer and autumn of 2018 showed the negative effects of both low-flow conditions and bed degradation over the last century on the river functions of the Dutch Rhine. These resulted in record-breaking water levels, extreme low navigation depth and subsequently nautical problems. As climate change will increase the inter-annual variability of...

Coastal regions are more and more affected by changes in water levels, storm patterns etc. owing to climate change. Nourishments and other human interventions constitute common practice in order to maintain and secure these areas. However, many aspects, especially the hydrodynamics, are not yet fully understood due to the complexity of the...

For the past years large quantities of plastic waste have been accumulating on the beaches in Southwest Bali. This has economical, environmental and health implications in this area. This event mainly occurs between December to March. The objective of this report is to map the plastic waste problem in Southwest Bali and look for efficient...

Despite the many positive effects of dams, they can also have several negative impacts on natural systems. One of these impacts is the decrease in sediment inflow towards the coast which can lead to coastal erosion.
A technique that can be applied to improve the situation downstream is modifying the discharge through the dam. Unfortunately,...

Drought is a recurrent extreme climate event that strongly affects every spectre of the natural environment and human lives (Madadgar andMoradkhani, 2014). There were numerous drought episodes recorded in MidwesternUSA, particularly in California. It has affected many aspects, including water shortages, groundwater overdraft, critically low...

Subsea Rock Installation vessels cover pipelines, which transport oil from oil and gas fields. This is done by means of a flexible fallpipe until depths of 1000 meters. Around the Shetland Islands, the workability of the vessels at two specific project locations is compromised by the conditions in the ocean. In this research, data from a 3D...

To continue the success of the Port of Rotterdam (PoR) in the future, a transition to a sustainable industry is essential. Though this is easier said than done. The energy transition involves a variety of initiatives which are at the same time highly dependent on each other. Whilst the increasing scarcity of available area and resources result...

In the proximity of the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier (ES-SSB), one of the largest hydraulic structures of the Dutch Delta Works, scour holes have developed that potentially threaten the stability of the structure. Although, these scour holes were anticipated in the design phase recent bathymetry measurements show that they are growing...

The Port of Rotterdam (PoR), located in the Rhine-Meuse estuary, is subject to sedimentation. In order to keep the port accessible for vessels with high drafts, maintenance dredging works are done. The maintenance dredging over the port area is executed by two parties, PoR itself regarding the harbour basins and Rijkswaterstaat (RWS) regarding...

In this research the hydrodynamic stability of a ballast filled mattress under waves is investigated. There is checked if this can be applied as scour protection around a suction bucket jacket: an offshore wind turbine foundation that uses a vacuum to suck itself in position. A ballast filled mattress is a mattress made from polyester with so...

The formation of scour holes is a vital thread of retaining the water infrastructure of rivers. Nowadays, protective filters are used to prevent washing away of the underlying material. Rijkswaterstaat started the program 'Stroomlijn’, in which trees (logs) are cut from the floodplains and placed in a sheltered zone of the river to test whether...

This study investigates nonlinear wave shape and the near-bed velocity influenced in the vicinity of a tidal inlet for the SEdiment supply At the WAdden Sea ebb-tidal Delta project. Wave nonlinearities occur when waves encounter a flow. An opposing flow leads to waves with higher peaks and reduced wave length. During a following flow, the waves...

Tidal basins are highly dynamic environments with a complex behavior that is often disturbed by human activities. Considering that tidal dynamics have a direct impact on surrounding engineering infrastructures, adjacent coastlines, nature environment and socio-economic human activities, it is crucial to know the impact of human interventions on...

The city of Rotterdam and its port have been constantly growing over the last decades. As the port is ensuring a place in the top ten ports in the world, the city of Rotterdam is changing as well, growing and becoming a more international town. The municipality of Rotterdam is planning to build a 3rd bridge that will cross the Nieuwe waterweg...

The coastal waters of Nigeria are a difficult environment to build structures to control the local morphology and hydrodynamic conditions to ones desire. This difficulty is a consequence of the persistent high-energy swell wave climate and Longshore Sediment Transport (LST) in the order of one million cubic metres per
year. Besides these...

In 2009 and 2010, two leakages through immersion joints occurred in the First Coen Tunnel near Amsterdam. From the study on t-he cause of these leakages, it followed that there was a potential problem for existing immersed tunnels: failure of the temporary Gina-seal combined with corrosion on the clamping structure of the definitive Omega-seal....
