This report is written with the aim to evaluate a possible port expansion in the port of San Vicente, Chile. In order to achieve this a thorough analysis on the port operations, hydrodynamical analysis using Delft3D and a bottleneck analysis on the infrastructure have been executed. A preliminary design for the port expansion is created. This...

This thesis is the third study of a research line that focuses on the interface stability of a rubble mound sand retaining structure. The type of interface considered is a geometrically open granular filter because of its economical and constructional benefits. The stability of an open filter structure in which the base layer is located on top...

The Netherlands has a centuries-long tradition of reclaiming land. In the last century gaining land from water peaked with the IJsselmeerpolders, made possible by technical innovations. The Noordoostpolder (1937–1942), one of the IJsselmeerpolders, is a unique example of a fully designed agricultural landscape of the twentieth century. It is the...

Population growth in rural areas of Egypt is rapidly transforming the landscape. New cities are appearing in desert areas while existing cities and villages within the Nile floodplain are growing and pushing agricultural areas into the desert. To enable control and planning of the urban transformation, these rapid changes need to be mapped...

For the use of open filters in land reclamations new guidelines are needed as no research is currently done for the configuration of a sand layer is placed on top of a filter layer. This research focuses purely on the interaction between cyclic motions and the described sand-filter layer. A numerical OpenFOAM model is used to extract the order...

Worldwide, land reclamations are constructed for the urban expansion of coastal megacities. Freshwater supply plays an important role in their sustainable development, especially in the light of climate change and depletion of natural water resources in the hinterland. The subsurface of these new lands offer opportunities for subsurface...

Spatially constant porosity and hydraulic conductivity are usually applied in hydrological studies related to land reclamations. However, the grain sorting and the degree of compaction within land reclamations differ per placement method. A study area at Maasvlakte II, the Netherlands, and the four other land reclamations that could be found...

Land reclamations in deltaric areas provide space to meet the demand for a safe place to live and work. Sand, a traditional filling material in some locations is becoming scarcer. An alternative filling material is mud. Mud consists of clay, silt, sand, organic material, water and gas. Therefore, it is a versatile material and difficult to...

In the Osaka area in the 1880s, rice was grown mostly in dry fields in upland areas, and a few paddy fields were situated on the natural wet landforms along the major rivers and streams on the Osaka Plain. As the area developed, dry fields became irrigated, and the lowland fields were filled and converted to urban land uses. For the Osaka city...

Manado, the capital city of North Sulawesi in Indonesia, is rapidly developing. The last years Manado has been extending into the sea, which changed the hydraulics and morphology of Manado Bay. This had negative effects on the currents, inducing erosion along the coast. Also Manado has problems with the presence of garbage in the rivers and...

During the execution of reclamation projects by Boskalis, often a temporary work channel and basin are required. This work channel is used by the dredging equipment to reach the project site as close as possible. The project site is often located in very shallow water which makes a channel necessary. The basin is used to transport the dredged...

New ports are mostly constructed on low lying coastal land or in shallow coastal waters. The surface level of the land for port facilities is then raised to a level well above the highest water mark. This requires vast volumes of good quality fill material often dredged from the sea. Besides the cost of dredging, there is the environmental...

The Eastern Scheldt tidal basin has changed drastically in the past five centuries under the influence of both human interventions as well as extreme events. In 1530 A.D. a storm-surge inundated large parts in the landward end of the basin, and in the following four centuries local inhabitants reclaimed about as much land as was inundated in...

People always want to live near water and all over the world the areas near the sea get more and more built with houses, hotels and infrastructure. For this reason there is a trend to reclaim land by making an artificial island near or against the existing coast. Examples are the airport 'Chek Lap Kok' in Hong Kong and the 'Plan Waterman', a...

South Korea suffers from a high population density and stands therefore in need of agricultural and industrial land. The Koreans are seeking for solutions to solve this problem. One of the possibilities is to reclaim land from the sea. Several land-reclamation projects have already been carried out and one of the projects that is at the moment...
