The port of Rotterdam is located within the Rhine-Meuse estuary where a substantial amount of fine sediment transport takes place. Therefore, the port of Rotterdam is subject to significant siltation, requiring maintenance dredging to guarantee a sufficient nautical depth of fairways and harbour basins. To optimise the dredging strategy in the...

We present a model for the dynamic formation of the forearc high of southern Anatolia where sedimentation in the forearc basin leads to thermally-activated deformation in the lower crust. Our thermo-mechanical models demonstrate that forearc sedimentation increases the temperature of the underlying crust by “blanketing” the heat flux and...

Crustal rheology and surface processes strongly influence strain distribution and shape of orogenic wedges at their front but how they influence the wedge rear is still unclear. Here, we analyse the coupled control of viscosity and sedimentation on forearc high growth during advanced stages of subduction accretion. We use 2D thermo-mechanical...

Wind turbines constitute a sustainable and effective solution to produce energy using wind power. Offshore wind turbines are becoming of special interest and more demanding with continuously increased diameters. However, their design poses great challenges, since the installation and fabrication tolerances in combination with high cyclic loading...

More offshore wind projects are being developed. Shallow locations are more occupied and a tendency to deeper water and to larger wind turbines is seen. These create more bending moment which can be more easily resisted by jacket substructures. The state of the art installation process of a jacket is as follows. The foundation piles are driven...

Wind turbines constitute a sustainable and effective solution for the production of energy using wind power. Offshore wind turbines are becoming of special interest. However, their design poses great challenges, since an offshore structure is subjected to combined wind and wave dynamic loading that is characteristic of the installation site and...

In this master thesis the flow behavior and the performance of a bow tunnel thruster at slow forward vessel motion is studied using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The study analyzes the flow and the turning ability for a cylindrical cross-section and the effect of changing the cross-section of the bow tunnel thruster. At Royal IHC it is...

A wedge oscillating vertically at free surface with frequency ranging from wave frequencies and slamming frequencies has been studied. The focus of this work has been on the gravity effect on the vertical forces acting on the wedge, especially the definition of the limits of gravity-dominant and gravity-negligible conditions and quantification...

RANS simulations are implemented to analyse the hydrodynamic characteristics of twin-rudders, i.e. Flat plate rudders, NACA rudders, and Wedge-tail rudders. The study mainly focuses on small attack angles. Results show that the NACA series is the most efficient profile while the Wedge-tail rudder has the highest rudder effectiveness.

Quay walls are costly structures. The still growing sea transport market asks for more, bigger and more cost efficient quay walls. In this research, a new type of quay-wall is investigated: the ‘Tube-Cell Combi-Wall’. The Tube-Cell combi-wall consists of relative large diameter piles with flat sheet piles in between. The large diameter piles are...

The currently performed corrective distal radius osteotomy procedures show several complications, such as tendon irritation and tendon rupture, due to friction with implemented fixation implants. This study focused on the development of a new fixation implant for positioning and fixation of bone segments for corrective osteotomy, that ensures a...

Salt intrusion into the Rotterdamsche Waterweg plays a major role in the water management of the Netherlands. The objective of the modeling described in this volume is to estimate the salt concentration caused by salt intrusion from the sea of water at various points. Chapter 2 gives an overview of the modeling. The sources of the data used are...

This paper gives a survey of the theoretical investigations in Holland on the motion of salt and fresh water in estuaries, locks, etc. The insight gained is set forth, and also questions yet unsolved are mentioned. First the long wave phenomena in the interface of two sharply separated liquids are treated, and in connection herewith, the cases...
