Initial damage, caused by previous wave loading or other events, might affect the hydraulic stability of pattern-placed revetments. Three common types of damage are considered in this study. The effect of this assumed initial damage on the hydraulic stability and failure probability of revetments is quantified using a FEM model. This model is...

Hydraulic structures are crucial for navigation, water management and flood protection in low-lying coastal and delta regions. Their importance is expected to continue growing in the coming years, because of the consequences of climate change and the continuous development and urbanization of these regions combined with more strict safety...

Along the Dutch coastline, coastal dunes act as the primary sea defence to protect the low-lying areas behind it from flooding. To ensure that these dunes are strong enough to meet national safety standards, models are used to assess their strength. Even though our modelling capabilities have significantly improved over the years, model...

In head waves, water jet impacts due to run up can occur as a result of the structural configuration of some floating structures, reducing workability. Wave attenuation near the floater may reduce the risk of water jet impacts. This paper presents a numerical study of the performance and attenuation mechanisms of various plate type fixed free...

For the design of maritime structures in waves, the extreme values of responses such as motions and wave impact loads are required. Waves and wave-induced responses are stochastic, so such responses should always be related to a probability. This information is not easy to obtain for strongly non-linear responses such as wave impact forces....

In the assessment of wave-in-deck loads for new and existing maritime structures typically model tests are carried out. To determine the most critical conditions and measure sufficient impact loads, a range of sea states and various seeds (realisations) for each sea state are tested. Based on these measurements, probability distributions can...

Flood gates form an essential part of many flood defence systems in coastal areas. During storm events, these gates are subjected to extreme loads from various sources. This dissertation addresses the dynamic behaviour of flood gates induced by wave impacts. A semi-analytical fluid-structure interaction model is developed to predict vertical...

When sailing in heavy seas, it happens that the water washes over the bow. This shipping of water is generally divided into two types. The term white water is used when the water is more of a spray and is generally harmless. Green water is more violent and can pose a danger to the crew and structures on board. <br/><br/>Research on green water...

This paper presents a novel design method to predict fatigue of flood gates due to dynamic wave loading. The accumulation of fatigue damage is predicted probabilistically over the entire lifetime of the structure rather than with a set of normative events. Load events are defined using a joint probability distribution of historical wind and...

Green water events on ships in extreme waves pose a considerable risk to personal, operational, and structural safety. Considering these issues, novel experiments were done to investigate the interaction between focused breaking waves and a ship at forward speed. The investigated interactions are global motion, global loads, and forces on a deck...

Irias Mata, Marisol (author)
The design of hydraulic structures like breakwaters and crest walls is often based on empirical formulations, physical models test, numerical models and a fair amount of expert judgement. Each technique has its own pros and cons. The main limitation of the empirical formulas is that often they have to be applied outside their range of validity....

The ability to predict the fatigue of flood gates due to dynamic wave loading is becoming increasingly important as coasts and waterways worldwide are being reinforced to suit a changing climate. There are few comprehensive ways to do so however, which often leads to conservative estimates. This thesis presents an integral framework with which...

The prospect of stricter national and international emission standards for the shipping industry are a driving force in the search for alternative shipping fuels, such as liquefied natural gas (LNG). However, new challenges arise with the widespread use of LNG. For example, there is a desire to use LNG cargo containment...

Marine structures can sustain damage due to violent wave impacts that are characterized by complex dynamics involving both water and air. Methods that predict impacts loads for structural design often assume the water as incompressible. These predictions can be inaccurate during impacts where air is entrained in water, as that greatly increases...

This study focuses on standing wave impacts on vertical hydraulic structures with relatively short overhangs. It addresses the demand for extended knowledge and loading prediction expressions for these structures. Based on laboratory experimental data from 146 tests, this paper works on two complementary objectives. Firstly, this study extends...

This study describes the structural response of historic lighthouses to extreme wave impacts. Located offshore on exposed rocks, 19th Century lighthouses were built with large interlocked granite blocks and have survived weathering for nearly two centuries. Under extreme wave impacts, lighthouses of this structural typology may uplift and...

This paper establishes a computationally efficient model to predict flood gate vibrations due to wave impacts including fluid–structure interaction. In contrast to earlier models, composite fluid domains are included to represent the situation of a flood gate in a dewatering sluice with the presence of an overhang that causes the confined-wave...

In this paper the development of a high-power pulsed LED line light and its use to apply particle image velocimetry (PIV) during wave impact measurements are described. An electrical circuit that generates high-current pulses is designed and built, which is used to overdrive a number of commercially available LEDs. The limit for this...

Waves impacting on maritime structures can cause damage which endangers the environment around these structures. Due to high hydrodynamic loading, structures can enter the plastic regime, resulting possibly in structural failure. The understanding of the principles related to this structural failure due to waves is a key concept in this research...

On board of High Speed marine Craft (HSC), the crew and the passengers are exposed to high levels of Whole Body Vibrations (WBV) and large magnitude Repeated mechanical Shocks (RS) caused by the motions of the craft. The HSCs are typically 10 meters long, capable of reaching a maximum speed up to 50 knots and widely used by various maritime...
