All over the world, coastal protection measures are taken, which can be soft (e.g. sand nourishments on sandy beaches) or hard (e.g. seadikes or seawalls). Special care has to be taken to design the transition between these hard and soft flood defences, as they are often vulnerable components of a coastal defence system. This study therefore...

'De Slufter' is a nature conservation area located in the Northwest of the Dutch Wadden island Texel which is inundated with seawater during storm events. The landward side of De Slufter is a sand dike which is part of the primary coastal defence ring of the island. HHNK, which is responsible for the coastal safety of Texel, currently relocates...

Following from the programme Room for the River, side channels are created in the Netherlands. For their maintenance, alternatives to dredging vessels are needed because of nature development, such as surface screens, that use the flow itself to generate erosion.
A field experiment using surface screens was executed at the small side...

Decrease in oil prices have negatively affected the investment towards offshore oil and gas explorations. This has in turn compelled offshore structure fabricators to find cost effective ways of fabricating oil platforms and jackets, to stay competitive in the industry. In this research paper, three alternative configurations to the conventional...

This thesis examines the influence of physical properties of structural EPS on granule morphology. Two types of structural EPS are found to be important. These types of structural EPS are: surface bound EPS and hydrogel forming EPS matrix. VirtualLeaf is used to model granules which contain only binding surface bound EPS. The TST model is used...

Recently, there has been a growing interest in passive climate design aimed at reducing the large energy demand arising from existing buildings. Sustainable consumption of quantities of energy by buildings has necessitated research into innovative designs for comfortable and energy-efficient buildings. This graduation project branches out from...

Tidal basins are highly dynamic environments with a complex behavior that is often disturbed by human activities. Considering that tidal dynamics have a direct impact on surrounding engineering infrastructures, adjacent coastlines, nature environment and socio-economic human activities, it is crucial to know the impact of human interventions on...

In this thesis we apply the numerical method of Morphological Geometric Active Contours as proposed by Alvarez, Baumela and Marquez-Neila to microscopic images of plant cells. The goal is to find all plant cells in the images, and then to find their cell walls. This is done in order to calculate certain properties of these cells automatically,...

KEY POINTS:
• While the formation of the intertidal shoal Hinderplaat was a direct consequence of a human intervention, its degradation was a natural response of the system to frequent hydrodynamic forcing conditions.

• Tidal currents push the Hinderplaat in offshore direction, but this is counteracted by waves: these...

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
year. Besides these...

Intertidal flats and salt marshes can protect hinterland against wave energy and flooding by tides or storm surges. Thus, the development of tidal flats is important to foresee. The presence of specific small scale features could indicate a certain development and large scale morphological shape. The shape is a predictor for development and it...

The use of rivers for navigation and the increased human activity along their banks generally requires river control and improvement measures. Most rivers have a natural tendency for continuous change of alignment, e.g. meandering and braiding rivers. Construction of bridges, towns, berths, etc. have required fixation of the river alignment at...

A very common observation is the episodic erosion of beaches during storms and the slow recovery (accretion) afterwards (Yates et al. 2009). Morphodynamic models parameterize physical processes in order to relate the fluid motions (hydrodynamics) to the bed level changes (morphodynamics) over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. Despite...

Crescentic sandbars are a commonly observed nearshore feature in coastal zones that strongly influence the surfzone circulations and are connected with the occurrence of rip currents. Furthermore, their spatial characteristics have been associated with the shoreline position in the form of shoreline perturbations, indicating morphological...

The Sand Engine is a new innovation in coastal protection, a mega feeder nourishment. This pilot project was constructed in 2011 along the Delfland coast, which is historically prone to erosion. Since its construction, the Sand Engine is intensively being monitored to track the morphological development.

The objective of this thesis is...

The Ayeyarwady River is a river with large hydrological variations and an abundance of relatively fine non-cohesive sediment, causing the dynamic behaviour of the river with fast shifting channels. This dynamic behaviour, together with the large hydrological variations, is the source of a frequently flooding river with a moderate navigability....

Dams are an essential part of the Dutch flood defence works to protect the hinterland from flooding by the sea. Sand closures are the construction of closure dams with sand as the main building material. The rising and falling tide generates a current through the closure gap, which increases in strength as the gap becomes smaller. This current...

Architectural engineering is evolving from a traditional craftsmanship to a new digital craftsmanship. Through advancements in production and processing techniques, we can achieve both mass production and offer mass customisation. As for the typology shown below, a simple house [1] & [2], the source of the material did not alter. The...

The objective of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the morphological behaviour of a sandy foreshore in the Markermeer, along the Houtribdijk. The research is primarily based on monitoring data obtained from the Building with Nature (EcoShape) project “Pilot Houtribdijk”. The focus is on the morphological development of the...
