Snyder, Andrew (author)
This thesis investigates the erosion process of cohesive soil due to a submerged, moving, inclined water jet. This study provides a visualization and description of the failure mechanics of cohesive soil due to a submerged inclined water jet and develops a new equation for estimating the erosion process of cohesive soil while including the angle...

Physical model tests have been performed to study static stability of rock-armoured mild slopes. Current stability design formulae for steeper rock-armoured slopes focus on plunging and surging waves. Slopes of 1:6 and milder usually have more spilling breakers which decreases the load. Also, on mild slopes displaced rocks more often remain...

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 this study, we present a novel modeling framework that provides a stylized representation of coastal adaptation and migration dynamics under sea level rise (SLR). We develop an agent-based model that simulates household and government agents adapting to shoreline change and increasing coastal flood risk. This model is coupled to a gravity...

The Netherlands is prone to flooding as more than a quarter of the country lies under sea level. To combat flooding and ensure that the country remains dry structures such are levees and dikes have been installed. However, older water retaining structures are more than ever failing the stringent safety standard assessments. These older...

The Falsterbo Peninsula is a low-lying area that provides a home to 7,000 residents, as well as various bird and vegetation species. To protect this densely populated area, the municipality was granted a permit to build flood protections. As part of the strategy, the dune system in the study area will be used as natural barriers against storm...

This research addresses how Ricanau Mofo, a low-lying village in Surinam, can become a more water-adaptive and sustainable village, while it faces land erosion, river bank erosion, changing rainfall patterns and sea level rise. It is urgent to intervene, as these issues are expected to increase in occurrence due to climate change. Constraints...

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,...

When two storms quickly succeed one another, it can be called a twin storm. Storm conditions at the coast can lead to higher water levels and waves that can give rise to dune erosion. Therefore, after a storm the dunes are smaller than before the storm. Dune accretion is a much slower process than dune erosion; it can take weeks to months of...

The Vietnamese Mekong Delta, a vital region in the country’s economy, faces the dual challenges of coastal erosion and mangrove degradation, which threaten its long-term sustainability and flood protection capabilities. This research focuses on the coastal area of the Bac Lieu province, characterized by severe erosion and degrading mangrove...

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...

Coastal dunes serve as the primary defence mechanism against coastal storms for many coastal communities around the world. Vegetation plays a role in increasing dune resiliency as it enables dune growth, however not enough is known about its effects during storms. Research has shown that the current climate crisis will increase the intensity of...

The increasing demand for rare minerals, such as lithium, cobalt, and copper, driven by the growth of the world population and the transition towards sustainable energy technologies, has become a pressing concern. These minerals are crucial for electrifying the transportation sector through electric vehicle production and are in high demand for...

The increasing focus on sustainable living and the need to reduce dependency on fossil fuels has led to a growing interest in renewable energy sources. Among these, the wind energy sector has not only experienced significant growth in terms of numbers but also in size. Larger turbines lead to more severe leading-edge erosion and further increase...

The Netherlands is a country that is being threatened by water, both from the rivers and from the sea. The Dutch have built dikes to keep their lands from inundation. To ensure the strength and stability of these dikes, they are being assessed on the basis of several failure mechanisms. One of these failure mechanisms is...

The coast of Paramaribo is predicted to undergo urban expansion due to the growing population of Paramaribo. However, the coast has to do with several challenges; tidal- and urban flooding and coastal erosion. This does not make the coast the most habitable place for urban expansion. The urban, water and soil systems are not functioning in...

van der Ven, Roald (author)
Storm surges cause elevated water levels, potentially leading to dune erosion, which is crucial to understand due to the protective function of dunes and sandy coastal defences against flooding. Dunes are dynamic systems, extensively studied through flumes and field observations. Collecting hydrodynamic and morphological data from erosion-prone...

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 this paper, the feasibility of using far-field acoustic measurements as a non-contact monitoring technique for wind turbine blade leading edge erosion is assessed. For this purpose, a DU96 W180 airfoil with several eroded leading edge configurations of different severities is experimentally investigated. The eroded leading edges are designed...

"Arctic Symphony" is an exploration into the intersection of architecture, music, dance, and the temporal dimensions of the Arctic landscape. This project, originally started as a graduation project, transcends traditional architecture by embracing the ever-changing dynamics of the Arctic environment and human interaction.<br/><br/>At the core...
