Zaalberg, Piet (author)
OpenFOAM allowed the author to simulate a large number of scenarios in which the influences of cross-shore profile shape, cobble porosity, cobble diameter and layer thickness on wave overtopping were examined. Four validation runs and six simulations to map the sensitivity are compared with data from two physical experiments conducted in the...

Maturity model is widely known as an assessment tool to understand an organization management capabilities and identifying potential improvement. The model demonstrates informative results towards the organization management maturity but hard to acknowledge the influence of potential improvement towards the organization’s asset performance....

After more than 85 years, the iconic Afsluitdijk is in need of a reinforcement. During the latest safety assessment of Rijkswaterstaat the dike did not meet the standards at two components; the amount of wave overtopping (>10 l/m/s) and armour stability. This research goes into detail about the overtopping on the Afsluitdijk. In the new...

Reinforcement measures are applied by water boards during critical conditions in an ultimate attempt to prevent flooding. However, the effect of these measures on the reduction in flood risk or failure probability of the flood defence is often unknown. This research focusses on the effectiveness of grass revetment reinforcement measures applied...

Contrary to a breakwater outer slope, rear-slope revetment does not have to withstand breaking waves. However, generally, an equal dimensioned revetment is used on both the inner- and outer slope. Although with low-crested breakwaters severe overtopping occurs, the application of similarly sized armour on both sides still results in an over...

In het kader van het “Vergelijkend onderzoek zetstenen voor dijken” is onderzocht of zetstenen slimmer ingezet kunnen worden bij dijkversterkingen. Doordat de thans leverbare typen zetstenen verschillen in vorm, hebben ze ieder specifieke kwaliteiten. Ze zijn bijvoorbeeld extra stabiel of remmen de golfoploop goed. Dit onderzoek is uitgevoerd...

Bank protections are currently constructed with stone, wood, concrete and steel. NETICS has introduced a sustainable and commercially very attractive alternative called the GEOWALL. The goal of this study is to find a viable field of application within the quay structures by considering the arising challenges of a larger scale wall. Additionally...

This report presents a study of the Malecón Tradicional in front of ‘Centro de Havana’ and ‘Havana Vieja’ in the city Havana, Cuba. The objective is to develop a sea defence solution that prevents unacceptable flooding of the hinterland and damage of the Malecón seawall. Implementing the recommended solutions reduces the overtopping sufficiently...

Kruis, M.C. (author)
For centuries dikes in the Netherlands have been protected against wave attack by revetments constructed of pitched blocks. Due to new insights into the behaviour of pitched blocks and increased hydraulic boundary conditions, a significant part of those dikes does not meet the current prescribed standards and safety norms anymore. As a result,...

Many dike failures have been ignited by damage due to erosion on the landward slopes. This paper investigates how grass covered slopes perform when being attacked by overtopping flow during storm surges. Based on observations during a number of simulator tests, damage is classified into three types 'head-cut', 'roll-up' and 'collapse' depending...

This paper presents adaptations to the XBeach model aimed at including the relevant processes for the generation of scour holes at the toe of a revetment. Dutch assessment rules for the safety of sea defenses need to be adjusted to cope with a combination of sandy dunes and hard elements. To that end, the XBeach model is prepared to be...

Nowadays, in the Netherlands there are about 600 kilometers of asphaltic revetments lying mainly on sea dikes of which approximately 400 km of dike is covered with asphalt concrete [STOWA, 2011]. Asphalt concrete revetments are applied the most and are mostly of older age. Because of the older age it needs intensive care involving periodic...

Within the framework of WTI, Research and Development of Flood Defence Assessment Tools (Wettelijk Toetsinstrumentarium), which is called in Dutch: WTI-2017 "Onderzoek en ontwikkeling landelijk toetsinstrumentarium", research was carried out to develop an erosion model for grass in the wave run-up zone consistent with the current model in use...

The Afsluitdijk (Enclosure Dam) is a major causeway in the Netherlands, which was constructed between 1927 and 1933, running from Den Oever on Wieringen in North Holland province, to the village of Zurich in Friesland province. The dam is 32 kilometers long and 90 m wide, with an initial height of 7.25 m above sea-level and a slope of 1:4 ...

The numerical simulation of wave attack on a sea dike with an asphalt concrete revetment during a severe storm is carried out using the dynamic Finite Element Method. When wave loads attack the revetment during such a storm, both the revetment and the underlying soil may be damaged. The two-phase flow equations are considered, to study the...

In a situation with a narrow dune, the dune base can be protected with a revetment to reduce dune erosion during extreme events. To quantify the effects of a revetment on storm impact, the functionality of the numerical storm impact model XBeach (Roelvink et al., 2009) is extended to account for the complex morphodynamics around revetments. Here...

A revetment of pattern placed elements, or a so called pitching, is used worldwide to protect shorelines and embankments. Also in The Netherlands more than 500 km of river, lake and sea dikes is protected by pitchings. Until the 60’s the design and construction of pitchings was based on experience. After the first damages on pitchings and the...

Apart from many ecological advantages, mangroves in front of a coastal defence may lower the construction and maintenance costs of the defence. Although mangroves have hardly any reducing effect on water levels (and on tsunami impact) mangroves may significantly reduce wave attack on a coastal dike, and in this way reduce the cost of a revetment...

In het kader van de toetsing van de waterkeringen zoals voorgeschreven in de Waterwet dienen ook steenzettingen elke zes jaar getoetst te worden. Om de toetsing te vereenvoudigen is door Rijkswaterstaat in 2006 het initiatief genomen om een computerprogramma te laten ontwikkelen dat al het rekenwerk en de beoordelingen uitvoert. Er is gekozen...
