The Port of Leixões is located in the northwest coast of Portugal. Its oil terminal has one berth that is somewhat exposed to rough environmental conditions and has some operational problems. In order to improve operational and security conditions at that berth (Berth “A”), the Port Authority has commissioned several studies along the years that...

The wave motion on-and-in Berm breakwaters as well as the reshaping process have been studied. Measurements were carried out to study wave interaction with a reshaped Berm breakwater. These tests were used for verification of a numerical model capable of simulating both the wave motion on as well as inside the structure. This numerical model has...

Measurements in a U-tube tunnel were carried out to study flow through coarse granular material. Tests with stationary flow and tests with oscillatory flow were done to study the differences between both. The coefficients from the extended Forchheimer equation, which is supposed to describe non-stationary porous flow, were determined. It...

For the description of porous flow the Forchheimer equation is normally used. Several formulae have been proposed for the coefficients Cl and c2 from this equation. All these formulae are based on experiments. Those coefficients represent the friction and resistance caused by the porous medium. The Forchheimer equation is a somewhat semi...

In the MAST-G6-S program numerical models will be developed for the description of wave motion on and in coastal structures. The most accurate one will probably be the SKYLLA model. That model uses the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations. For a description, see Broekens and Petit (1991). After it has been developed for structures with an...

Shelf circulation is driven primarily by wind- and tide-induced forces. It is laterally only weakly constrained so that the geostrophic (Coriolis) acceleration is manifest in the response. Nearshore circulation on the other hand is dominated by wave-induced forces associated with shallow-water. wave breaking and is confined to a relatively...

An empirical relationship is presented for the incipient motion of bottom material under solitary waves. Two special cases of bottom material are considered: particles of arbitrary shape, and isolated sphere resting on top of a bed of tightly packed spheres. The amount of motion in the bed of particles of arbitrary shape is shown to depend on a...
