The effects of climate change are felt all around the world. An increased sea level goes hand in hand with an increased risk of flooding. To combat this, the coastlines must be reinforced to withstand future sea levels. However, repeatedly reinforcing coastlines to keep up with the sea level rise (SLR) could prove extremely costly. An...

What long ago started as a small fishing village, seeking refuge from the Romans, slowly evolved into the city of Venice that we know today. With its unique location came unique problems, most of which were related to the interplay between Venice and its lagoon. By severe measures in the past it has continued to withstand the test of time. <br/...

Ongoing sea level rise combined with significant levels of land subsidence cause the everlasting need for reinforcements of the current coastal protection measures to ensure a certain level of coastal safety. Developing countries in the Asian regions tend to suffer from even more severe levels of land subsidence and often lack the financial...

The current owners of the Scheveningen Pier are starting to head into the second phase of their exploitation plan, which is to replace the current pier. This new pier is larger than the current pier and can exploit at a higher level. This thesis creates a design for a new Scheveningen Pier. A design method is used, which combines the engineering...

Tidal energy has a large potential to contribute to achieving the sustainability goals in the Netherlands, due to the long coastline and many estuaries. The investment costs for the implementation of offshore tidal energy are however, still a drawback. A possibility to lower the investment costs for tidal energy is to implement tidal energy...

Sandy beaches can be found all over the world and are on the interface between the sea and the land. Important functions of beaches are the protection of the inland to the forces of the sea and providing local opportunities in recreation. The impact of storm events on the beach is therefore an important topic of research especially with future...

This publication offers an overview of the latest cross-disciplinary developments in the field of Building with Nature (BwN) for the protection of coastal regions. The key philosophy of BwN is the employment of natural processes to serve societal goals, such as flood safety. The starting point is a systems-based approach, making interventions...

The incentive for this publication was to expand the realm of enquiry around the topic of Building with Nature (BwN), for two main reasons. First to gain an interdisciplinary, and therefore deeper, understanding of BwN as an object of study. Secondly, but no less important, is an understanding of how different forms of knowledge contribute to...

Decision-makers in low-lying coastal zones are confronted with uncertain developments around flood risk.These drivers are surrounded by large uncertainties, which requires delta management to be adaptive. This research offers insights about adaptive delta management for the Rhine-Meuse estuary from three perspectives: a physical, a socio...

Like other cities in Kathmandu Valley, Bhaktapur faces rapid urbanisation and population growth. Unsafe, new settlements are partly located at the floodplains and the government lags behind in implementing proper land-use policy to control unrestrained settlement. The rivers are not only constrained by uncontrolled settlements, but also by...

In the current breakwater design process, not all feasible concepts can be explored due to time constraints. However, designers are also influenced by breakwaters constructed near, or at the same location as their breakwater project. But also conservative assumptions influence the breakwater design process, for instance, regarding the wave...

The Tsleil-Wautuh Nation (TWN) reserve, Sleil-Waututh, located at the north shore of the Burrard Inlet in Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada) is strongly influenced by climate change. Sea level rise, coastal flooding and shoreline erosion are contributing to loss of land, damages to infrastructure, ecosystem changes and exposure of historic...

The design and construction of quay walls are processes that exist for many centuries and have become more complex and challenging in current engineering practice. For the design of quay walls a number of guidelines and design codes have been developed over the years. These give the requirements that a quay wall structure should meet, but do...

The goal of this study is to examine the feasibility of this solution, from a water quality and hydraulic point of view. Firstly, the current state of the three water bodies was investigated and a stakeholder analysis was conducted to look into the social and political context. Secondly, the effect of the solution on the water quality in the WL...

The drinking water company PDAM Tirtawening has two pipelines that supply raw water to the treatment plant. The pipelines stretch out for 31 kilometers from Chikalong(small nearby town) to the treatment plant in Badaksinga in Bandung. For one of those pipelines the current flow to the treatment plant is well below the design flow. The original...
