The growing awareness of climate change asks for innovation in the methods of applying nourishments at the Dutch coastline. The concept Zandwindmolen has therefore been developed. Using wind mills at sea, sediment is dredged offshore and transported towards the shore, from where hydrodynamic and morphodynamic processes redistribute sediment...

The coastal waters of Nigeria are a difficult environment to build structures to control the local morphology and hydrodynamic conditions to ones desire. This difficulty is a consequence of the persistent high-energy swell wave climate and Longshore Sediment Transport (LST) in the order of one million cubic metres per<br/>year. Besides these...

A low-lying country as The Netherland is prone to coastal flooding, and its risk may be enhanced by global-warming induced climate change. Sea level rise has been historically considered as the key factor in coastal retreat, but waves also play an important erosive role along the coast, which can also be affected by the changing climate. During...

Longshore Sediment Transport (LST) is one of the main drivers of beach morphology. It works at temporal scales ranging from hours to centuries and at spatial scales ranging from tens of meters to hundreds of kilometres. Episodic, large LST rates can result in important physical impacts such as inlet closure, rapid build-up of ebb/flood shoals,...

Durban is located on the east coast of South Africa in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. It is one of South Africa’s biggest cities and has one of the busiest ports in Africa. To maintain Durban’s current economic position the Durban Port has to expand, which is problematic due to a lack of space. A solution is to develop a completely new port: the...

The response of longshore sediment transport to the morphodynamic state of the beach was assessed with the use of the process based numerical model, Delft 3D. For this purpose, idealized simulation bathymetries that reflect morphological characteristics of two different beach states (namely longshore bar and trough and transverse bar and rip)...

The longshore sediment transport (it will be referred also as LST) is a core issue in the field of coastal engineering. It is among the most important nearshore processes that control the coastal morphology, and determines in large part whether shores erode, accrete, or remain stable. Consequently, it is important to be able to calculate the LST...

Deltares is currently involved with multiple Angolan companies to advice on several coastal projects along the Angolan coast, especially in the Luanda area. Luanda is expanding rapidly trying to keep up with its economic growth as such coastal projects like land reclamation occur often these days. Still there is little understanding of the...

Longshore sediment transport (LST) is one of the main drivers of beach morphology. Bulk LST formulas are routinely used in coastal management/engineering studies to assess LST rates and gradients. However, there is still great uncertainty in LST estimation with these bulk formulas. This uncertainty may have two sources: 1) experimental errors in...

Longshore sediment transport (LST) is one of the main drivers of beach morphology. Bulk LST formulas are routinely used in coastal management/engineering studies to assess LST rates and gradients. Over 50 years of research has resulted in several bulk LST formulas that have been tested with varying levels of rigor. In this study, the predictive...

The effect of the longshore dimension on dune erosion is examined numerically with a 2DH process based model XBeach. Exploratory simulations are presented to examine longshore effects due to directionally spread waves, longshore variation in topography and longshore variation in bathymetry. The simulations reveal that alongshore sediment...

As a good rule of thumb, one-line models have been in use for a wide range of coastal projects for the past 30 years to predict the beach morphological change and make the appropriate shoreline management plans. Though applied to many coastal sites with certain success, these models are still under further development so as to achieve better...

The hydrodynamics and sediment transport in the swash zone is currently outside the domain of coastal-area models, which is a significant limitation in obtaining littoral sediment-transport estimates, especially on steep reflective beaches where the waves practically break on the beachface. In this study, an existing process-based coastal model ...
