In the future, two enormous challenges face humanity: decreasing the carbon emissions and supporting the growing energy demands in the developing regions of the world. These challenges highlight the need for a greater amount of implementation of renewable energy projects. This thesis tackles one such potential project, the modeling of a tidal...

Reversed risk<br/>With more than 80% of Thames River banks transformed into concrete storm walls, with the Thames Barrier in place since the 70s, the dynamic tidal force is persistently causing storm surge flooding and flash floods throughout London’s dense urban areas, putting the UK coastline as a priority area among the North Sea adjoined...

Zeeland, located in the south west of The Netherlands, has suffered major casualties and damage due to the flood in 1953. After the disaster, the Dutch Government appointed the so-called Deltacomittee, provided with the task of advising on the execution of the Deltaplan. As part of the Deltaplan, North Sea estuaries has been closed off from the...

The Eastern Scheldt basin is protected by a semi-open storm surge barrier that was completed in 1986. In 2015 a set of five turbines was installed in one of the barrier openings as a pilot for tidal energy extraction. Due to the construction of the barrier, the average tidal range and velocities have significantly decreased throughout the basin...

The Bristol Channel has one of the largest tidal ranges in the world, with a mean tide of nearly 10.5 m at Avonmouth, and speculations on how to harness this energy date back well over a century. One method is tidal range by the use of tidal lagoons, which operates on principles akin to hydropower. The lagoon is essentially an enclosed reservoir...

Additional thesis - The largest structure of the Dutch Delta Works, that protect the Netherlands against high water levels at sea, is the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier. The Eastern Scheldt barrier is constructed as an<br/>open structure that can separate the Eastern Scheldt estuary from the North Sea. In case that water<br/>levels of +3.00...

The increasing demand for electricity offers many opportunities for renewable energy production, of which one alternative is tidal stream energy. Several feasibility studies have shown that the global tidal stream energy potential can contribute significantly to producing renewable energy. This tidal energy can mostly be produced at the 'tidal...

Tidal energy converters are an emerging technology with the potential to expand the portfolio of renewable energy sources. Bluewater is developing the BlueTEC, a floating tidal energy converter with two variable pitch turbines. From research on floating wind turbines, it is known that control is fundamentally limited due to right hand plane...

With the instability of oil prices and the increasing of people’s awareness in environmental problems, renewable energy is the key solution of these problems. Tidal energy, with its advantages of being predictable and its high energy density, is one of the most promising renewable energy forms. Indonesia’s topographic conditions with plenty of...

In de Golf van Khambat, in het westen van India, bestaan plannen voor de constructie van een getijdecentrale, mogelijk in combinatie met een zoetwateropslag voor irrigatiedoeleinden. De redenen voor deze plannen zijn tweeledig. • Ten eerste varieert het getij verschil in de Golf in normale omstandigheden tussen 4,5 m voor een doodtij (het getij...

The Gulf of Khambat in India is an estuary with an extremely large tidal range which in average circumstances varies between approximately 4.5 m for a neap-tide and 8.5 m. f or an average spring-tide. This large tidal difference goes hand in hand with a tidal flow in the range of 6 to 11 * 109 m3 per tidal cycle. Due to these features the Gulf...
