In this report, an experimental investigation of the influence of currents on submarine slope stability is presented for the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier case. Slope instabilities, including liquefaction failures, have been observed in the scour hole slopes near this barrier. The currents above the sloping bed are expected to initiate the...

This thesis introduces a fragility-based framework in order to perform a custom assessment of the complex Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier. By applying a conditional approach to loading parameters, the statistical dependency between failure mechanisms and structure elements can be described separately for the strength and loading part of the...

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 Netherlands is a low-lying delta and therefore prone to flooding. After the flood in 1953, the Delta Committee was established which commenced the Delta Works to enhance water safety for the society and economy. The Maeslant Barrier and Eastern Scheldt Barrier are the largest and most technologically advanced flood defences which are part of...

The Eastern Scheldt basin is protected by a semi-open storm surge barrier that was completed in 1986. In 2015 a set of five turbines was installed in one of the barrier openings as a pilot for tidal energy extraction. Due to the construction of the barrier, the average tidal range and velocities have significantly decreased throughout the basin...

Additional thesis - The largest structure of the Dutch Delta Works, that protect the Netherlands against high water levels at sea, is the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier. The Eastern Scheldt barrier is constructed as an<br/>open structure that can separate the Eastern Scheldt estuary from the North Sea. In case that water<br/>levels of +3.00...

The Oesterdam tidal flat nourishment is a hook-shaped nourishment that was constructed in November 2013 in the Kom area of the Eastern Scheldt. One of the objectives of the nourishment is to increase the design life of the Oesterdam in the face of increasing wave loads due to structural erosion of the intertidal flats. A study is conducted in...

The worst flood of the 20th century happened at the night of January 31, 1953. After this disastrous flood the Dutch government came up with The Deltaworks, a large scale plan to protect the hinterland against future threats of high water. As part of the Deltaworks the Eastern Scheldt area was compartmentalized with the Eastern Scheldt storm...

Deltas are of great importance to humans all over the world. They are densely populated coastal areas, where land arises from sea. An amazing gradient where two worlds meet and nature and humans proliferate traditionally. Yet this gradient increasingly disappears due to the great technical advances since the 19th century, which tried to control...

Visser, A.H. (author)
Several programs have been written to process laser scan data from two shoals in the Netherlands. The first makes a grid of heights, the second calculates deformations and makes plots. The third utilises a variogram to obtain information about the amplitude, direction and wavelength of tidal ripples, which are processed and plotted by a fourth...

In this thesis a feasibility study is performed for the design of fibre reinforeed polymer (FRP-) slides to replace the steel slides in the Eastern Scheldt storm surge harrier. The advantage of using FRP-slides is the far better corrosion resistance then in case of using steel. For the design different variants of FRP-slides have been...

After the disastrous floods in 1953 in the Netherlands, measures are taken to improve the safety in the Netherlands. In the Southwest of the Netherlands a couple of tidal basins are closed by the construction of dams and storm surge barriers. The closure of tidal basins shortens the coastal length and can result in a cost reduction comparing...

De Graaf, L. (author)
After extensive flooding in 1953, Deltaworks were constructed to protect the Southwest delta in the Netherlands. In the Eastern Scheldt the connection to the North Sea was regulated by an open storm surge barrier and two compartment dams. These decreased the tidal volume and consequently tidal flats are eroding and disappear under water. The...

The Eastern Scheldt tidal basin and its ebb tidal delta have changed drastically in the recent centuries under the influence of natural processes and human interventions. A Storm Surge Barrier, one of constructions within framework of Delta Project in the Eastern Scheldt, is considered as the largest impact to changes in hydrodynamics and...

Das, I.L.L. (author)
Since the completion of the Eastern Scheldt project in 1987, in the south-western part of The Netherlands, there has been a decrease of tidal volume, range and current in the Eastern Scheldt estuary. This has led to morphologic changes in the basin. The channels are in demand of sediment and as the Eastern Scheldt barrier itself blocks most of...

Hoogduin, L. (author)
The aim of this research is to determine to what extend the scour holes limit the sediment transport through the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier and whether or not human adaptations, like sand-nourishments in the scour holes, can have a positive effect on the sediment import. To investigate these scenarios a numerical model (Delft3D) is used...
