Rubble mound structures are often constructed to prevent severe wave damage to ships. By constructing the crest at a certain level, the waves are reduced such that safety is ensured. However, a large increase in sea level rise is expected in the next century due to climate change. Because of this, multiple adaptations might be necessary to meet...

In this research OpenFOAM is used to model and determine the complex hydrodynamic behaviour of a Homogeneous low-crested structure (HLCS) consisting of cubipod artificial concrete elements. The validated model is used to gain insight in the design sensitivities of a two dimensional cross sectional layout to reduce sea wall overtopping. HLCS and...

To increase physical insight into wave overwash processes at low-crested beach barriers, wave overtopping discharge events rather than the conventional average overtopping discharge need to be quantified. Also, in order to make intelligent use of the many empirical formulations on wave overtopping discharge at breakwaters from literature, a...

Laboratory experiments to provide calibration data for numerical and empirical models of flow, morphodynamics, functionality and sustainability of low crested structures. Output of the tests are flow velocities and drag forces. This document describes the set-up of the tests.

Summary of all results of the Delos (Environmental design of low crested structures) project. Objectives of Delos were (1) to provide an inventory of Low Crested Structures (LCS), (2) analyse LCS hydrodynamic an stability and their effects on morphology (3) investigate impacts of LCS (4) develop methodology for Integrated Coastal Zone Management...

The present report, produced within the framework of the EU funded project DELOS, attempts to recognise and analyse main scale effects in the physical modeHing of rubble mound breakwaters used in offshore and coastal engineering. Scale effects appear in physical modeHing because the ratios between the farces of interest, as present in prototype,...

This report presents additional information and new formulae not included in Delos report D22. Existing formulae for the design of LCS's for coast protection structures can be found in D22 and are therefore not repeated in this report.

The construction of artificial reefs in a sandy beach environment creates virgin habitat for rocky shore organisms. Earlier isolated patches of natural habitat may become connected via a chain of "stepping-stones" such that gene flow is pemitted and also the dynamics of some or all species is shifted from the original situation. Such a situation...

This report focuses on detecting and predicting patterns of epibiota on Low Crested Structures in relation to the hydrodynamic environment. From fieldwork together with statistical and theoretical analyses several conclusions could be made about identified relations between epibiotic and hydrodynamic regime.

In the report the epibiota colonising LCS and other coastal defence structures was for the first time characterised along several European shares, including UK, Italy, Spain and Dentnark. The composition and distribution of epibiotic communities on LCS described in relation to the position on the defence structures and other environmental...

Low-Crested stmctures (LCS's) are typically built in shallow water as detached breakwaters for coastal protection purposes. The structures are usually parallel to the shoreline with wave attack almost perpendicular to the structure. However under special enviromnental conditions more oblique waves can occur. Groin systems or breakwaters for...

In the desctiption of the work, it was stated that a review of recent Contingent Valuation Studies on Beach Maintenance and protection of Natural Habitats in coastal zones would be done and that a statistical analysis would be performed to extract a Benefit Transfer Function from existing CV studies. This report is organised as follows. In the...

Low crested and submerged structures (LCS) such as detached breakwaters and artificial reefs are becoming very common coastal protection measures (used alone or in combination with artificial sand nourishment). Their purpose is to reduce the hydraulic loading to a required level that maintains the dynamic equilibrium of the shoreline. To attain...

This report summarizes and presents design knowledge for both the functional and structural design of detached breakwaters for shoreline stabilization. Functional design of break:waters in the United States relies on a significant amount of engineering judgement, data from a few existing breakwater projects for comparison, and an understanding...
