Bed roughness is an important parameter for the prediction of sediment transport as well as calculating flow conditions near the bed. Numerical models are extensively used to make these predictions. In these models it is fundamental to have proper values for bed roughness. The bed roughness is being estimated using a dataset from an ongoing...

The Demak coastal area faces severe erosion problems. The main cause of the erosion of the coastline, which is at some places as high as 1.5 km of land, is the deforestation of the green belt of mangroves for the purpose of building fishponds. This has disturbed the delicate sediment balance in the area drastically. The BioManCO project aims to...

Deterioration of the ecological quality within the Markermeer, due to the elimination of natural flushing and a resulting increase in turbidity, has created a need to revitalize the region for the benefit of the local wildlife. One major way in which this is being achieved is through the Marker Wadden, designed as a wetland area featuring a...

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...

Due to the removal of mangrove forests, the coastal zone of Demak district has suffered from severe erosion. One of the proposed solutions to restore the sediment balance and encourage mangrove re-establishment, is the construction of semi-permeable dams. This study aims to optimise the design of such structures. A 2DH site-specific model was...

A group of islands will be constructed in the lake Markermeer to act as nature reserve for birds, called the Marker Wadden. These islands will be constructed out of soft clay, dredged from the bottom of the lake. Building with soft cohesive soils, also referred to as mud, is still a largely unknown territory. Traditionally, sand is used for land...

A demand to use mud as fill material for land reclamations has emerged over the past years. Such reclamations start with pumping a muddy suspension into an area enclosed by dikes. The particles in suspension then settle to form a mud layer, so that the supernatant can be removed. This filling process may be repeated several times to completely...

There are many locations where the accumulation of mud poses a problem. In lakes it can have a negative influence on the ecological situation and in port basins it can hinder traffic. Usually these mud deposits are removed periodically with regular dredging vessels. Looking at the continuous nature of the mud deposition and at the trend of an...

The joint venture between Boskalis and VolkerWessels is responsible for installing 70 jacket foundations for the Wikinger offshore wind farm. The critical phase in this installation procedure is lowering a jacket foundation template through the wave zone. This installation phase will induce large dynamic loads on the hoisting wire. Lowering...

The tide-dominated Scheldt estuary is located in the southwest of the Netherlands. From the Dutch-Belgian border seawards, it consists of a system of channels and shoals and an ebb-tidal delta facing the North Sea. The behaviour of non-cohesive (sand) and cohesive (mud) sediment particles in the area are (until now) generally studied using...

This research aims to provide an understanding of the behaviour of co-disposed coarse (sand) and fine (clay and silt) tailings when discharged into an onshore dredge pond, and the dependence of that behaviour on the sediment composition. This understanding contributes to the ultimate goal of finding a method by which fine tailings can be...

Tidal inlet systems, as found in the Dutch Wadden Sea, often feature both sand and mud. Due to differences in sediment properties, sand and mud particles respond different to identical forcing conditions, like short waves and tidal currents. Because of this, sand and mud can get transported to different locations. This process is referred to by...

For a proposed liquefied natural gas export facility, Olokola LNG (OKLNG), located at the western limits of the Niger Delta in Nigeria a 10 km long and 17 m deep approach channel is designed for tankers to reach the terminal at the shoreline. Mud is expected to be deposited in the channel because of the persistent swell climate which mobilizes...

inland transportation of goods. The artificial fairway channel provides entrance to the port of Paramaribo and Paranam. The motivation for this thesis project is the intention of lowering the fairway channel to increase the navigable depth, to create a cost-effective fairway for the bauxite and alumina transport activities. To obtain the...

On numerous locations in the world mud occurs in front of the coast close to river mouths. This mud can be transported to these places in fluid state or can become fluid under certain wave conditions. Fluid mud may have a strong damping effect on surface waves. Dissipation of up to 90% of the wave energy within a few kilometers has been measured...
