On the 29th of December 2016 a large Rhine ship loaded with 2000 ton benzene sailed through the weir at Grave, located in the river Meuse in the Netherlands. The accident created a large gap in the weir and within 12 hours the upstream water level decreased by a maximum of 3 meters. Due to this decreased water level shipping was limited,...

The formation of scour holes is a vital thread of retaining the water infrastructure of rivers. Nowadays, protective filters are used to prevent washing away of the underlying material. Rijkswaterstaat started the program 'Stroomlijn’, in which trees (logs) are cut from the floodplains and placed in a sheltered zone of the river to test whether...

Zeeland, located in the south west of The Netherlands, has suffered major casualties and damage due to the flood in 1953. After the disaster, the Dutch Government appointed the so-called Deltacomittee, provided with the task of advising on the execution of the Deltaplan. As part of the Deltaplan, North Sea estuaries has been closed off from the...

Downstream of hydraulic structures, the flow is normally of turbulence. This will cause considerable erosions on the gravel bed. To prevent this, block mattress is preferable in many cases. Its effective stabilization and feasibility on construction make it commonly used against scouring problems, protecting underwater pipelines and cables. The...

Erosion and sedimentation are natural processes that occur in natural flows.<br/>If the erosion is a threat for a structure, a bed protection is necessary to stop this process. A bed protection usually consists of relatively large stones.<br/>For calculating the required dimeter of the stones several formulae are available, of which the formula...

Block mattresses are widely used bed protection elements under non-uniform flows. Previous studies show that the turbulence of the flow plays a key role on the instability of the mattress. However, in the available design equations, the turbulence intensity is included as a magnification factor roughly and qualitatively defined. Consequently,...

Quantifying the penetration depth of a dragging anchor on a horizontal layer of rockfill provides the possibility to optimize the layer thickness of rockfill layers with a protective function. Current research on this subject is limited and is often aimed at anchor capacities in sand and clay. Penetration behaviour in rockfill is mainly...

Hollander, W. (author)
A filter can be applied to protect a bed against scour. Normally, these filters are geometrically closed, to prevent winnowing of the base material through the filter. However, geometrically closed filters are expensive and difficult to realize in the field. Geometrically open filters can serve as an alternative. Within an open filter, the pores...

Granular filters are used for protection against scour and erosion of base material. For a proper functioning it is necessary that at the interfaces between the filter structure, the subsoil and the water flowing above the filter structure no material will be transported. Different types of granular filters can be distinguished, this paper...

Steenstra, R.S. (author)
For the design of granular bed protections often a stability parameter is used. The stability parameter represents the forces that are acting on the stones and is used to predict the response of the bed to these forces. Existing parameters are often derived for a limited range of application. When the parameter is used outside this range, the...

Roelse, F.P. (author)
In the last decades shipping has increased significantly, resulting in larger ships with an increasing power in bow thrusters. Due to this increasing power, the hydraulic loads at bottom protection near quay structures has also increased, making a traditional bed protection more expensive. Therefore an alternative design method is suggested in...

Introduction Inland and seagoing vessels are equipped with (bow) thrusters. The use of these thrusters can cause scour of the bed alongside a quay wall. In order to assess the consequences of local scour due to bow thrusters on the design of the structure it is desirable to know the dimensions of the scour holes as a function of in time....

Granular filters are used for protection of structures against scour and erosion. For a proper functioning it is necessary that the interfaces between the filter structure, the subsoil and the water flowing above the filter structure are stable. Stability means that there is no transport of subsoil material through the filter to the water above...

Research into hydraulic loads by a bow thruster. The hydraulic loads on the slope at an open quay construction on piles is investigated. The propeller (bow thruster) jet induces hydraulic loads on the bed, which could result in scour holes and damage to the quay construction. Performed scale model tests provide details about the hydraulic loads...

This paper presents the results of an experimental study on stone stability under nonuniform turbulent flow, in particular expanding flow. Detailed measurements of both flow and turbulence and the bed stability are described. Than various manners of quantifying the hydraulic loads exerted on the stones on a bed are extensively reviewed and...

The Paintal (1967) formula can be used to estimate transport rates of coarse-grained bed material (such as stones from a bed protection) under low hydraulic loads just above the threshold of motion; the application however is limited to steady currents. This paper presents research aimed at extending the range of application to a combination of...

Despite the fact that many studies on the stability of stones in bed protections under flowing water have been conducted, our knowledge is still far from advanced and reliable. Issues like how to quantify the hydraulic loads exerted on the stones on a bed and the associated stability of the stones are still central and most challenging in stone...

A 1-to-25 scale physical model of a typical cross section of the levee along the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO) was con-structed at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory in Vicksburg, MS. The purpose of the physical model was to obtain hydrodynamic measurements of unsteady flow...

During the construction of the first Dutch offshore wind farm prototype measurements were performed. These measurements were aimed to monitor the behaviour of the granular filter layer of the scour protection around the mono-piles upon which the wind turbines are founded. These measurements were compared to scale model test results and...
