At Isle of Palms there is a lot of erosion due to shoal bypassing events. Five TU Delft Hydraulic Engineering students went to the island under supervision of Coastal Science and Engineering. The main scope of the report is to create a thorough understanding of the processes that form, transform and propagate the shoals that cause catastrophic...

Spurs-and-grooves (SAG) are a common and impressive characteristic of shallow fore reef areas worldwide. Although the existence and geometrical properties of SAG are well-documented ever since the 50’s, the literature concerning specifically the hydrodynamics around them is sparse. This study provides a characterization of the 3D flow patterns...

Jager, T. (author)
This thesis investigates the governing generating mechanisms, shoaling and reflection behaviour of infra-gravity waves on a mild-sloping, macro-tidal, rocky shore platform. The methods comprise among others, field data analysis of the Lilstock platform, numerical modelling using a calibrated XBeach model and a cross-correlation analysis to...

Visser, A.H. (author)
Several programs have been written to process laser scan data from two shoals in the Netherlands. The first makes a grid of heights, the second calculates deformations and makes plots. The third utilises a variogram to obtain information about the amplitude, direction and wavelength of tidal ripples, which are processed and plotted by a fourth...

Problem definition The city Mar del Plata has one of Argentina's largest ports and biggest seaside beach resort. After the construction of the port, a steadily growing sandbank appeared in the port entrance and considerable erosion occurred on the northern beaches. To warrant the accessibility of the port, frequent maintenance dredging is needed...

Since the completion of the Eastern Scheldt project in 1987, in the south-western part of The Netherlands, there has been a decrease of tidal volume, range and current in the Eastern Scheldt estuary. This has led to morphologic changes in the basin. The channels are in demand of sediment and as the Eastern Scheldt barrier itself blocks most of...

It has been found by many researchers that low frequency (LF) waves dominate the wave energy spectrum in very shallow water. Given that many longshore and cross-shore morphological processes are located within this zone, LF waves play an important role in determining morphological change, especially dune erosion and overwash during storm events....

Due to the new act on the water defense the Directorate-General of Public Works and Water Management of the Netherlands is required to evaluate the design conditions for the coastal defenses every five years. To do this evaluation a model is needed to translate offshore wave conditions to nearshore design conditions. For such transformations...

Reeds eerder zijn onderzoeken naar de golfdempende werking van rietkragen uitgevoerd. In 1981 is een aantal metingen verricht in het Waardkanaal door een samenwerkingsverband van de Landbouwhogeschool en de Rijksdienst voor de IJsselmeerpolders. Bonham publiceerde in 1983 de resultaten van een onderzoek naar golfdemping in een oeverzone van de...

This paper describes efficiency of the rip current barriers against the harbour shoaling. For investigation physical model was used. First wave basin geometry and external water supply was optimized in order to obtain a uniform longshore current along the coast. Then current pattern in 2 conditions -after construction of the breakwater and after...

Het rapport "Literatuuronderzoek bij een hoog voorland" bevat een systematische weergave van de bestaande kennis van het gedrag van golven in een bepaalde ondiepte-situatie. Die situatie betreft een tamelijk vlak, relatief hoog liggend voorland voor een kust met daar boven een geringe waterdiepte, en wel het gebied vanaf de lijn waar de golven...

De civieltechnische werken hebben de laatste jaren een zeer snelle ontwikkeling doorgemaakt. Om een technisch verantwoorde constructie te maken is een fundamentele kennis vereist omtrent de krachten op en het gedrag van een constructie. Bij het ontwerpen van maritieme construties spelen de oppervlaktegolven een belangrijke rol en het is van...
