On Saba, an island located in the Caribbean, a new harbour will be constructed. To protect coral reefs in the vicinity from light attenuation and sedimentation, it is important to monitor and predict the turbidity stresses caused by the dredging operation. In the early stages of such projects involving dredging operations, a common approach is...

This research critically examines Dutch water boards' journey towards the circular use of dredged sediment, set against the backdrop of water boards’ ambitious targets for circularity. Water boards, carrying the majority of responsibility for regional dredging, must navigate the surplus of approximately 40 million cubic meters of dredged...

Immersed tunnels are positive buoyant structures during installation and negative buoyant after installation. A tunnel is composed of sequential immersed elements that are coupled to each other in joints. Tunnel elements consist of segments which are compressed to each other by longitudinal post-tensioning. After immersion the tunnel is...

In the dredging industry, the automation and accuracy of the Dredging Perception System (DPS) are vital for operational efficiency and environmental safety. Current DPS implementations face challenges with sensor fault tolerance, leading to system unreliability and increased false alarm rates that can disrupt dredging operations. We propose a...

Turbidity currents have extensively been explored in quiescent environments. However, during several underwater activities (e.g., dredging and deep sea mining), generated turbidity currents could travel in opposite directions and interact with each other, which could largely influence their hydrodynamics and sediment transport capacity....

Hydraulic transport pipelines in the dredging, mining and deep sea mining are designed using steady-state methods. However, these methods cannot predict density wave formation. Density waves form a risk for pipeline blockages, therefore there is a need to understand and preferably be able to model the process. The density waves studied in...

Abstract: Efficient port operations require minimizing turnaround time which is the total duration of a vessel's stay in the port and encompasses waiting, maneuvering, berthing, and de-berthing times. The turnaround time can be reduced by optimizing arrivals and departures, maximizing berth availability, facilitating cargo handling, and...

In dredging and land reclamation, there are growing economic and environmental pressures to make beneficial use of fine-grained/cohesive soils. Due to these pressures, there is renewed interest in researching ways to optimise the beneficial use of fine-grained soils in dredging and reclamation.<br/>Stiff cohesive clayey soils soil break up into...

This research focuses on a new system for nourishing the Dutch coast with sand, which utilizes semi-autonomous sailing barges and an electrical crawler to continuously replenish the beach. Yearly, the Dutch government grants contracts to nourish the Dutch coast with volumes around 10.000.000 m$^3$. The Dutch dune coast protects the low part of...

Sedimentation is a common issue in navigating through channels, berths and anchorages of many ports and harbors. In order to address this issue, maintenance dredging can be done in three different ways; relocating of the sediments, keeping the sediments in place, or dredging with nature and using the natural currents to remove sediment. Trailing...

This study is the first to experimentally show two wave mechanisms regarding density wave amplification with long horizontal slurry transport. There is bed-driven and suspended-driven density wave amplification, in which the grain size determines which mechanism is dominant.<br/><br/>Density wave amplification in hydraulic pipeline transport...

Jaarsma, Ruurd (author)
Echosounders are used to monitor suspended sediment concentrations (SSC) in coastal management studies and to monitor dredge plumes. Due to the dependency on sediment properties like particle size, shape and density, performance of single frequency measurements is limited when sediment properties are changing.<br/><br/>Using multi-frequency...

When dredging rock using a Cutter Suction Dredger the high amount of spillage is problematic, since it prevents an energy efficient removal process. This papers presents a coupled DEM-FVM method to simulate spillage, that can be used for optimizing the design and working method of the Cutter Suction Dredger. In these simulations, the challenge...

Autonomous submerged dredging offers numerous benefits, such as reduced ship resistance and lower vacuum requirements for the dredge pumps. However, this method also presents new challenges, such as stability and buoyancy control, which must be addressed to minimize the energy requirements and ensure cost-effectiveness and sustainability. To...

Dredged cohesive sediment is progressively being used for wetland construction. However, little is known about the effect of plant growth during the self-weight consolidation of this sediment. In order to check the feasibility of such a study, a new experimental setup has been constructed. As an example, the effect of Phragmites australis on the...

The feasibility of installing a suction system, which consists of a pump and pipeline for transporting sediment from the sediment trap to the reallocation site to complement the water injection dredging (WID) method is accessed in this thesis. The combination of a suction system and a water injection dredger is called central suction-WID system....

Due to an increased demand for transport, ships become larger, needing a larger navigable depth. For these reasons a waterway needs to be dredged and a Cutter Suction Dredger is a vessel suitable for this operation.<br/><br/>A Cutter Suction Dredger is a floating vessel which removes sand, clay or soft rock from sea or river beds. It has a...

This thesis combines a high-tech, capital product, with servitization methods in order to create a product-service system. Servitization has allowed companies to align their interests and create a co-creation environment. The overall objective of this thesis was to find an improvement over the current service design of Beaver vessels. This new...

Due to the expected increase in coastal replenishment along the Dutch coastline, and the need to decrease pollutant emissions in the Netherlands and worldwide, the Autonomous Low Energy Replenishment Dredger (ALERD) is developed. The ALERD is a sustainable and cost-effective solution to perform coastal replenishment work along the Dutch...
