Lighthouses are structures subjected to extreme weather conditions which have to resist strong surge. Therefore to ensure their survival over time, it is necessary to determine the loads that these structures will face during its lifetime. However, load prediction on lighthouses is troublesome due to the multiple factors that affect the loading....

Physical model tests were performed in a wave flume at Deltares with rock armoured slopes. A shallow foreshore was present. At deep water, the same wave conditions were used, but by applying different water levels, the wave loading on the rock armoured slopes increased considerably with increasing water levels. This allowed an assessment of the...

Due to the removal of mangrove forests, coastal zones can suffer from severe erosion. One of the proposed solutions is the construction of permeable structures. This study aims to optimise the design of permeable (brushwood) structures in order to restore the sediment balance and encourage mangrove re-establishment on tropical mud coasts....

Studying mangroves in the field can be very difficult; therefore it is in some situations better to model in a flume. The question is, to what extend are the situation in the field and the situation in the flume comparable with each other? This study focusses on reflection in the wave flume. Wave energy in a flume can be damped by placing a wave...

A crown wall is a gravity based L- shaped concrete structure on top of a rubble mound breakwater. Functions of a crown wall are: reduction of wave overtopping, enable transport on the breakwater and placement of pipelines on top of the flat surface. Marine contractor Van Oord was awarded to extend a breakwater with a crown wall on top, located...

In this work the feasibility of a numerical wave tank using a hybrid particle-mesh method is investigated. Based on the Fluid Implicit Particle Method (FLIP) a generic formulation for the hybrid method is presented for incompressible multi-phase flows involving large density jumps and wave generating boundaries. The performance of the method...

Prototype single layer armour units on a breakwater slope are observed to break. To predict when breakage occurs, the objective of this research project is to obtain knowledge on, and measurements of the rocking behaviour and failure mode of single layer armour units. A single cube on a breakwater slope is subjected to investigations. An...

Natural reefs are important habitats for a wide range of species. Furthermore, they attenuate waves and thereby protect the leeside, functioning as coastal protection. Many reefs are however eroding or degraded, leading to a loss of these ecosystem services. Artificial reefs can reverse this negative trend. The artificial reefs in this context...

The new Delta Flume of Deltares (300 m long x 5 m wide x 9.5 m deep) is used to test wave interaction with, among others, sea defences (dikes, dunes), coastal structures (e.g. breakwaters, revetments and jetties), eco-dynamic designs and<br/>coastal morphology. The present paper presents the first outcomes of the performance tests of the flume...

The correct generation of a second order wave field in a laboratory wave tank is of importance in several experimental investigations, particularly those of nonlinear evolutions and sediment transport. In the present work, which was carried out under the MLTP (medium long-term planning) of DELFT HYDRAULICS for improving experimental techniques,...

Wind-wave flumes have been added to the laboratory facilities since a long time, in order to simulate natural wind lv-aves. Most wind-wave flui'nes have been equipped in addition with mechanical (regular) wave generators to avoid extreme small model scales. For some time past a programmed (irregular) wave generator has been installed in one of...
