In the past decades, beach nourishments have been widely applied along the coast of the Netherlands. Different studies on beach nourishment have been conducted over the years. Most of these studies regard the design, execution method, morpho- and hydrodynamic behaviour, and ecological impact. However, the relationship between the design aspects...

The overarching aim of this research is to contribute towards a best practice in modelling meso-scale O(10km), medium-term O(5yrs.) morphological features in Tidal & Estuarine environments. Therefore, various modelling aspects and stages are reviewed. The first pillar argues the need for numerical models in the...

Delta cities all around the world are under pressure from different forms of climate change effects. Soil subsidence as a result of peat oxidation, and anthropogenic loading of the soil. The soil in many of the heavily urbanised deltas around the world is subsiding faster than the see level is rising as a result of climate change. Few people are...

The Sand Engine is an example of a feeder nourishment that is intended to nourish coastal systems. This strategy is based on placing sediments highly concentrated at one location, from which it is expected to spread alongshore over large distances on decadal timescales.<br/><br/>Here the morphological development of the Sand Engine mega feeder...

Polder areas as typical in the Netherlands require real time control on the water levels. Efficient pumping is a subject with increasing interest due to a required use of 20% green energy by 2020 set by the government. In 2010, the energy requirements already exceeded 175 GWh per year. For optimal control, water level predictions are important....

The Sand Engine is a new innovation in coastal protection, a mega feeder nourishment. This pilot project was constructed in 2011 along the Delfland coast, which is historically prone to erosion. Since its construction, the Sand Engine is intensively being monitored to track the morphological development.<br/><br/>The objective of this thesis is...

With the implementation of new legal aspects for dune safety assessment in 2017, the current method, Duros+, is no longer feasible to represent the desired processes. This 1D deterministic, volume-balance model cannot simulate processes like inundation and overwash, which are crucial to fulfil the new requirements for dune safety assessment....

This document describes a study into the influence of alongshore bathymetric variability on currents which form a risk to bathers. Changes to coastal zone management along the Delfland Coast have given rise to questions on the influence of alongshore bathymetric variability on bather risk. Extensive measurement data is available from two...

In October and November 2009 a pilot project has been executed at the Delfland Coast in the Netherlands, constructing three small sandy headlands called Sand Groynes. Sand Groynes are nourished from the shore in seaward direction and anticipated to redistribute in the alongshore due to the impact of waves and currents to create the sediment...

Objective Due the coastal protection program along the Dutch coast, the groins that first defended the coast against erosion, are now covered under sediment. Due to erosion the covered groins will resurface however. The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of the resurfacing groins on the hydrodynamics and sediment transport....

The graduation project is to define a future for the mainly agricultural area in-between Rotterdam and the Hague, in policy today known as the Hof van Delfland. The strategy for the future of Hof van Delfland response to the changes in rural landscape and developments for policy for these kind of areas, to be specific: - the transformation...

During the winter 2009, beach and dune nourishments have been executed at Vlugtenburg (Holland coast) in order to reinforce the coastal defense. Natural processes such as wind and waves are expected to take care of effective and efficient redistribution of the sand throughout the system. The present study is part of the sub-project Monitoring...

In September and October of the year 2009, three sandgroyne nourishments have been executed at the Delfland Coast near the village of Ter Heijde. The nourishments have been executed to restore the sediment buffer in the upper part of the coastal profile. A sandgroyne is a concentrated amount of sediment (200.000m3) artificially nourished from...

In deze studie zijn de effecten van de aanleg van de Kustlocatie op de waterbeweging en de morfologie bestudeerd. De studie is verkennend van aard omdat voor de Kustlocatie nog weinig onderzoek is verricht op het gebied van de morfologie. Om de effecten te bestuderen wordt gebruik gemaakt van het DELFT3D-systeem van het Waterloopkundig...

De Nederlandse kust is verre van uniform. Zo is een opvallend verschijnsel langs de kust het ontbreken van brandingsruggen voor de Delflandse kust, ter hoogte en ten zuiden van Scheveningen. Deze brandingsruggen worden normaliter gevormd onder brekende golven ter plaatse van de brekerlijn. Dit komt mede omdat onder de bijna brekende en net...

Onderzoek naar de invloed van drijvende golfbrekers op de kust van Delfland. Om de werking te zien van het zanddiode-principe in te zien, is zowel voor het langstransport als het dwarstransport, een mathematisch model toegepast op de Delflandse kust. Uit de berekeningen van het langstransport kwam naar voren, dat het mogelijk was om het netto...
