The summer of 2018 was one of the hottest and driest summers since the start of measurements by the Dutch weather service in 1900. This lead to forest fires, problems for farmers and extreme low water levels. The Rhine at Lobith recorded an all-time low water level and also the Ijssel an Meuse rivers recorded extreme low water levels. This...

Until now, an extensive design method for mild slopes has not been available. The aim of this thesis is to understand the stability of rock on mild slopes under wave attack for impermeable cores in order to optimize designs. Physical model tests have been executed to study this stability for a 1:8 slope. Mossinkoff (2019) executed physical model...

As a result of the unabated growth in plastic usage worldwide, their abundance in the marine environment has steadily increased over the last few decades. Nowadays, plastic litter is observed across all oceans and shores. Due to their wide spread and adverse effects on ecology, economy and potentially human health, plastic pollution has been...

During construction of breakwaters, adverse weather conditions can result in damage, in the form of reshaping and loss of material to the open work fronts of the structure. Based on literature research, analysis of work methods, analysis of damage to older breakwater projects and interviews, it was deduced that during construction, the open work...

The design of a container terminal is a process that goes through a number of phases. One of the first is the concept design phase, which is needed to make a first assessment of the project's technical and financial feasibility. This phase is exploratory of nature, because of the early stage in the design cycle and consists of several tasks that...

Rapid climate change and the corresponding estimated sea level rise can affect the performance of the coastal defense structures such as breakwaters, seawalls, and dikes. In order to improve these coastal defenses, a detailed understanding of the processes which contribute to wave run-up and overtopping over the coastal defenses needs to be...

In the Rhine-Meuse Delta over 100 scour holes are located. Many of these scour holes have dynamic behaviour and are growing in size and depth. A scour hole can lead to an increased probability of flooding. One of the potential hazards of the presence of scour holes is the occurrence of flow slides on the foreshore next to scour holes. Depending...

In most current dike assessments only the stationary water levels are investigated in the assessment of the stability of the inner slope, while there are differences for all kind of dikes between the stationary and transient pore water pressures and therefore in the stability. This results in a conservative probability of failure, while...

This thesis research has been conducted to analyse the sediment dynamics in the Yangon Estuary, in order to define the cause for the sedimentation in Monkey Point Channel. For years, Yangon Port has been suffering from limited accessibility due to the sedimentation in the channel and currently daily dredging is required in order to let ships...

Recent major tsunami events generated by earthquakes inundated coastal cities and caused extreme destruction and loss of human lives. The collapse of coastal bridges due to tsunami wave impact represents a huge obstacle for rescue works. The need to understand tsunami effects and develop tsunami-resilient bridges became apparent in the aftermath...

Summary<br/>In the twentieth century a substantial number of navigation locks were build in the Netherlands. The navigation locks built in that era mostly had a life span of 80 to 100 years. This means that in the coming years most of these locks will be in need of either renovation or replacement. Rijkswaterstaat, the administrator of most of...

Growth of world population, sea level rise, land subsidence and climate change gives new challenges for the present and the future. A new innovative approach of engineers is needed to reach socio-economic development with care for the environment. In the Netherlands, an EcoShape consortium is initiated where multiple experts came together from...

Indonesia is one of the largest ocean pollutants in the world in terms of plastic emissions. The country has many tourist areas, including the island of Bali, which is the main tourist hub. The plastic problem is large around and on Bali, which has negative consequences for both the environment and the tourism sector. NGOs and the government are...

The 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake had a devastating impact on the town of Otsuchi in Iwate Prefecture, resulting in 1,234 immediate deaths and 59.6% of residential houses being fully damaged amongst other severe consequences. The post-disaster Reconstruction Plan (2011-2018) of this town focused on rebuilding the previously existing town with...

It is already acknowledged that Nature-based Solutions can be used to attenuate waves, however it is still uncertain to what extent the vegetation can contribute to decreasing the flood risk. So far mainly small-scale tests have been performed to quantify wave attenuating properties of vegetation. To quantify the effect of more extreme wave...

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...
