Harms, Johan (author)
Currently multiple projects investigate the effect of lowering the crest of groynes in the Dutch rivers with the aim to lower the backwater effect of groynes under high water levels. There is a major uncertainty however in the modelling of groynes, and therefore in the prediction of the effect of groyne lowering. Currently submerged groynes are...

Overgaauw, Tim (author)
While waves are propagating towards the shore and are interrupted by an obstacle like a groyne, they will turn around the tip into the sheltered region of the groyne. This sheltered region is called the shadow zone and contains a reduced wave climate. The turning of the waves is based on the lateral transfer of wave energy along the wave crest,...

Lateral flows redistribute sediment and influence the morphodynamics of channel-shoal systems. However, our understanding of lateral transport of suspended sediment during high and low water slack is still fairly limited, especially in engineered estuaries. Human interventions such as dike-groyne structures influence lateral exchange...

During the last two decades, increasing vessel size in major German estuaries has led to the significant change of the local loading regime i.e. increased importance of ship-induced waves and currents. As a consequence, the intensity of ship-induced loads has increased considerably, resulting in damage to rock structures such as revetments,...

In the Waal bed degradation occurs, which is mainly induced by a large number of river regulations measures done in the past. Rijkswaterstaat develops possible measures and new techniques to stop riverbed erosion and/or mitigate the negative effects. One of the possible new techniques to reduce riverbed erosion locally is groyne field...

Ships in rivers create waves and these can have a negative impact on fish habitats along the river banks. A modelling study is carried out to investigate how these ship-induced waves can be damped in groyne fields by making structural modifications to the groynes. For this purpose, different types of openings (notches) are applied to the groynes...

Zhang, R. (author)
Beach erosion, the loss of sand from a beach due to longshore and/or cross-shore sediment transport mechanisms, is a challenging problem. In order to stabilize the beach and to slow down the rate of beach erosion, the construction of hard hydraulic structures is a traditional option. Groins are one of the oldest man-made hydraulic structures...

The Dutch River Waal, a branch of the Rhine, has been trained for centuries to mitigate the effects of ice-jams and improve navigation. The works, started in 1850, involved river straightening and narrowing by a series of transverse groynes. Besides fulfilling their goal, the groynes also created the need to raise flood protection works and...

Ambagts, Lindert (author)
In submerged conditions groynes add resistance to a river, thereby increasing the water levels for a particular discharge. Groynes are modelled in two ways, either they are included in the bed topography when the grid resolution is sufficiently high or with a sub-grid parametrisation when the grid cell-size is larger than the geometry of the...

In this research two problem statements are defined, namely (1) the validity of the assumption that groynes and weirs are equivalent in hydraulic models, and (2) the difficulty of modelling groynes and weirs in the 3D numerical solver package OpenFOAM. Using the incompressible 3D Navier-Stokes equations solver for multiphase phase flows, the so...

Platzek, F.W. (author)
A river engineer is challenged with the task of setting up an appropriate model for a certain application. The model needs to provide suitable answers to the questions asked (i.e. be effective) and needs to do this within the available time (i.e. be efficient). To set up such a model with sufficient accuracy and certainty, a modeller needs to...

Briele, A.C. (author)
Permeable wooden pile groins have a long tradition as being part of the coastal protection in the Netherlands, as well as in Germany and the United Kingdom. They are built to protect beaches from eroding by reducing the current velocity along the beach and thus its ability to transport beach material. This type of groin is most popular among the...

Groynes are commonly used in the major rivers in the Netherlands. They confine the flow of the river to a main channel but also act as resistance element once submerged and in that way influence the stage discharge relationship of the river. Several formulas exist describing groynes as a drag resistance. Another possible way of determining their...

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...

The study deals with the investigation of flow structures in groyne fields interacting with the flow generated by navigation. Groynes are traditionally constructed to ensure adequate water depth for navigation, so the interaction of navigation and groyne fields is nearly guaranteed. The Hungarian Danube section – which is part of the 7th...

This primer describes some of the causes of coastal erosion and tries to put into perspective their scale and consequences. There are no uniform causes, just as there are no uniform solutions. Erosion tends to be site-specific. Yet, with careful observation and measurement, a particular problem can be placed in context and draw from the...

Rijkswaterstaat is responsible for maintaining the fairway of the river Waal for navigation for more than a hundred years. In the past problem areas, which cause hindrance for navigation and block the fairway, were prevented with structural measures. Dredging was used as a last resort. In 2005 the desired fairway depth was increased from BRV -2...

The use of pile groynes to reduce sediment exchange between river and harbour Introduction To reduce siltation in harbours located in rivers or waterways in order to decrease the high costs of dredging and maintenance of its basins, a need of searching measures to decrease the sediment exchange between river and harbour arises.

Om in de toekomst de veiligheid rondom de Nederlandse rivieren tegen overstromen te waarborgen heeft het kabinet het standpunt "Ruimte voor de Rivier" ingenomen. Hierin staat beschreven dat in 2015 een pakket aan maatregelen ervoor moet zorgen dat een maatgevende Rijnafvoer van 16.000 m³/s binnen de gestelde veiligheidsnormen moet kunnen worden...
