Sand wave is one of the large-scale seabed morphological features with a typical wave height of metres and a wavelength of hundreds of metres. Its mobile nature causes a nuisance to offshore infrastructure and marine transport. Pre-sweeping is a construction procedure commonly involved in submarine utilities installation to dredge existing sand...

The Eastern Scheldt, a tidal basin in the southwest of The Netherlands, underwent large physical and ecological changes due to a system-wide human interference. The construction of a storm surge barrier at the seaward side and closure of the upstream branches in the 1980s resulted in intertidal flat erosion. This has far reaching consequences...

High-resolution morphological modeling of fluvial processes with complex, rapidly varying flows has been limited so far by model accuracy or computational efficiency. One of the most widely used numerical algorithms is based on the total variation diminishing method, solved by either upwind or centered approaches. An upwind scheme preserves high...

For many applications in the field of coastal engineering 2D-morphological models are being applied. Due to the large computational effort these models demand it is nearly impossible to include a full wave climate in long-term morphological modeling. This has asked for waveclimate reduction methods in order to reduce the input and consequently...

The formulations of the 2DH process-based, nearshore morphological model XBeach were extended to allow for curvilinear grids using a finite volume approach. The formulations were tested for schematic cases such as a circular island and a field validation study was carried out for the case of storm erosion during a construction phase of the soft...

This thesis presents the development a generic morphological model for both structured and unstructured grid and the extension to a biogeomorphological model. For the morphological model, numerical algorithms are adjusted to adapt unstructured grid and are validated against analytical solutions and flume experiments. For the bio-geomorphological...

This paper demonstrates the sensitivity of morphological process-based models to the chronology of input wave conditions. In this research the effect of an emerged offshore breakwater on the morphology of the beach is investigated. A 30 day long morphological simulation with real time history of the wave (brute force - base case) is compared...

The Atrato River in Colombia should be navigable for bigger vessels when generating a corridor which should link the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific Ocean. A likely segment of the river that forms a critical point for navigation is the point of bifurcation where the river is divided in the Montaño and Murindó branch. Both branches should be...

It is estimated that the waterway in North Passage would not be able to meet the demand of shipping development soon and it is necessary to open a new deep navigation channel with a depth of 10 m in North Channel in the near future. A pilot study on the regulation of North Channel was proposed by Yangtze Estuary Waterway Administration Bureau...

The Lai Giang inlet located in Binh Dinh province incorporates various features of the estuaries in the Central part of Vietnam. Belonging to the micro-tidal and wave-dominant coast and influenced by the monsoon regime, the inlet has a seasonal character. During the dry season, as the river flow diminishes, the wave action causes high level of...

Introduction Dong Lam Cement Factory is developing a new clinker plant in Thua Thien-Hue Province, Vietnam. The clinker has to be exported towards Ho Chi Minh City, where it is grinded into cement and used for the construction industry. For the clinker production coal is needed and has to be imported. To make the in- and export possible a new...

The aim of this study is to understand whether hydrodynamic processes or geometrical characteristics play a dominant role in the response of the nearshore sandbar system to hydrodynamic conditions. To that end a depth-averaged (2DH) process-based model has been used to compute the morphological evolution of nearshore sandbars. The morphological...

Smale, A.J. (author)
Many morphological models that are in use today, make use of spatially constant grain sizes and bed roughness. Application of this spatially constant grain size and bed roughness is not a correct representation of reality. When making use of actually measured grain sizes, the prediction of the morphological changes does not necessarily improve....

Some information is given how to use the scour model DUCT-SUSTRA (Hoffmans, 1991). The scour model predicts the morphological process in scour holes or trenches and consists of two separated sub-models: a flow model DUCT and a morphological model SUSTRA. The flow model is based on the equation of continuity and the momentum equations for...

The general purpose of this research project is to model mathematically the local scour downstream of a structure (2-D). The model has to simulate the development of the scour as a function of the time. Basically two models are necessary namely a flow model and a morphological model. The latter model has to describe the bed and suspended load...

As a continuation of the initial study on the morphology of the Douro mouth, performed by Hydronamic in 1982, the Administracao dos Portos do Douro e Leixoes commisioned Hydronamic bv to construct a mathematical hydro-morphological model of the Douro mouth. This second part of the morphological study of the Douro mouth is divided into three...

The river Douro debouches into the Atlantic Ocean near Oporto (Portugal) with a funnel-shaped mouth, partly closed from the ocean with a sand spit. Both the wave-induced longshore sediment transport as the sediment yield of the river are limited by the available quantity of sediment (non-alluvial conditions). The results of some sediment...

The calculations of bottom changes presented in our report "Terminal do Seixal Hydro-morphological study", February 1982 were based on a calibrated sediment transport formula. This formula was calibrated with the results of measurements made by Hydronamic in September 1981. These measurements were executed during one of the driest summers...

Hydronamic has performed a study for the design of the new access channel to the terminal of Siderurgia Nacional at Seixal (near Lisbon) in the Tagus estuary. The report deals with the following subjects: - In chapter 2 a description is given of the mathematical tidal model, the calibration thereof and the final results. - Chapter 3 deals with...
