Dense suspension flows, both in the natural environment and industrial settings, are complex phenomena with significant implications. From rivers shaping landscapes to industrial processes involving slurry transport, these flows hold a prominent position in numerous sectors. This thesis delves into a specific facet of these intricate flows:...

Backward erosion piping (BEP) is a failure mechanism of hydraulic structures like dams and levees on cohesionless foundations subjected to seepage flows. This article models the time-dependent development of BEP using numerical simulation of the erosion process. A 3-dimensional finite element equilibrium BEP model is extended with a...

In response to the escalating coastal erosion at the Weg naar Zee region in Suriname, this study explores the beneficial reuse of dredged sediment from the Suriname River. The integral question is, ”What is the feasibility of the beneficial reuse of dredged sediment through sediment nourishment to rehabilitate the growth of mangrove forest on...

Playa Unión and Puerto Rawson are facing severe coastal erosion and increasingly the negative effects. Since the first half of the 20th century there have been signs of erosion, but also of sedimentation. However, the coastline in the project area is retreating over the years. The situation has recently been declared an emergency. Furthermore,...

This thesis explores the potential of a fixed artificial bypass system for a sustainable and eco-friendly approach to coastal management in IJmuiden. The presence of the IJmuiden Port disrupts the natural processes, causing significant morphological changes to the coastal area. Current management practices require frequent dredging and...

In the Netherlands, the coastlands act as the principal protection against the sea. Without human interventions, the Dutch coast would be eroding due to an imbalance in the sediment budget of the coastal zone. The preferred coastal management strategy is sand nourishment, which have become larger in scale and more complex over the last 70 years....

The Netherlands is a country with a history of human activity along the coast to ensure water safety. In the 1990's a new approach to coastal management was adopted that allowed for more experimentation in the Dutch dunes. Since then a slew of different types of projects have been undertaken, one of which is the construction of foredune blowouts...

In dit verslag is een eolisch sedimenttransport model geformuleerd en het model van De Vries geïmplementeerd en geanalyseerd. Na de afleiding van de eendimensionale advectie-diffusievergelijking vanuit de driedimensionale continuïteitsvergelijking is eerst het model van De Vries zonder diffusie onderzocht. In het model kan er onderscheid gemaakt...

Coastal dune systems provide valuable functions that are threatened by human activity and climate change. Preserving and strengthening coastal dunes through coastal management and the implementation of interventions require accurate predictions of coastal dune development. The development of coastal dunes is driven by complex interactions...

Hilgersom, Tijmen (author)
The Ems Dollart estuary is facing high levels of turbidity, which hinders the growth of algae and impacts the entire ecosystem. In recent years, turbidity has increased here with 0.5 to 3% per year between 1990 and 2010, corresponding to a doubling of suspended sediment concentration (SSC) within 24 years for the upper bound of 3%. This trend is...

Bisschop, Femke (author)
Mangrove forests are important (sub)tropical intertidal ecosystems providing coastal protection and other ecosystem services like carbon storage and biodiversity. In view of the loss of these forests many rehabilitation projects have started, but unfortunately these efforts often fail. A main cause for coastal erosion is a disrupted (fine)...

A submerged, low-relief nearshore berm was constructed in the Pacific Ocean near the mouth of the Columbia River, USA, using 216,000 m<sup>3</sup> of sediment dredged from the adjacent navigation channel. The material dredged from the navigation channel was placed on the northern flank of the ebb-tidal delta in water depths between 12 and 15...

Reliable prediction of the erosion rate of sediment beds is important for many applications in coastal and river engineering. Theoretical understanding of empirically derived scaling relations is still lacking. This applies in particular for the scaling anomaly between low and high Shields number conditions. In this work, the erosion process is...

Existing tidal input reduction approaches applied in accelerated morphodynamic simulations aim to capture the dominant tidal forces in a single or double representative tidal cycle, often referred to as a “morphological tide.” These strongly simplified tidal signals fail to represent the tidal extremes and hence poorly allow to represent...

Grain size affects the rates of aeolian sediment transport on beaches. Sediment in coastal environments typically consists of multiple grain-size fractions and exhibits spatiotemporal variations. Still, conceptual and numerical aeolian transport models are simplified and often only include a single fraction that is constant over the model...

Structural flood protection systems such as levees are an important component in flood risk reduction strategies. Levees can fail through various failure mechanisms; this thesis focuses on the mechanism Backward Erosion Piping (BEP) which occurs when a sandy levee foundation is eroded by groundwater flow. To assess whether a levee's reliability...

A managed realignment is the landward relocation of a flood defence to re-establish tidal exchange on formerly reclaimed land. In a managed realignment, the newly formed intertidal area acts together with the realigned dike as a nature-based flood defence system. In this thesis, the focus is on the managed realignment of Perkpolder, a former...

Over the last decades, mangrove forests have suffered immense and rapid losses worldwide. In recognition of their important socio-economic and environmental functions, many attempts have been made to both protect the remaining mangrove coastlines and restore eroding sites. Unfortunately, many rehabilitation attempts have failed, lacking a...

This thesis analyses the importance and application of considering multiple coexisting wave trains in sediment transport predictions.<br/><br/>The wave trains at offshore and nearshore locations are analyzed by wave spectral partitions (Portilla at el., 2009). The temporal variability of consistently occurring wave trains can be analyzed through...

There is a demand by Rijkswaterstaat for CO2-neutral sustainable methods and technologies to maintain the Dutch coastline. The Zandwindmolen is a fixed CO2-neutral dredge, transport and nourishment concept that nourishes sediment continuously. The purpose of using a Zandwindmolen is to provide the entire surrounding area where the Zandwindmolen...
