Due to growing human activity in coastal zones, there is an increasing stress on salt marshes all over the world. These intertidal wetlands were often seen as coastal ‘wasteland’ and large areas were reclaimed for urban development and agriculture. In Puget Sound, a system of interconnected marine waterways and basins in the northwest of the...

In 2008 kwam de tweede Deltacommissie met het voorstel om het waterpeil van het IJsselmeer in de toekomst met 1,5 m te verhogen. Door de verwachte zeespiegelstijging zal het namelijk steeds moeilijker worden om het overtollige water van het IJsselmeer af te voeren naar zee. Om dit onder vrij verval te kunnen blijven doen is een peilopzet...

In September and October of the year 2009, three sandgroyne nourishments have been executed at the Delfland Coast near the village of Ter Heijde. The nourishments have been executed to restore the sediment buffer in the upper part of the coastal profile. A sandgroyne is a concentrated amount of sediment (200.000m3) artificially nourished from...

The area of New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. A large part of the city got flooded due to bad design, construction and maintenance of the levee system. In order to increase the level of protection of the city, the levees are heightened and strengthened in the framework of the Hurricane and Storm Damage and Risk Reduction...

Along the northern coast of Morocco order has been given for the construction of a large transshipment port in the Mediterranean Sea, at a designated project location around the city of Nador. On this green-field coastal stretch a new transhipment port will have to be developed for various types of cargo. Throughputs of the terminals will have...

The objective of this study is to determine large scale of fine sediment transport near coral reefs islands in the Singapore Strait. Coral reefs in the Singapore Strait face great pressure due to high sedimentation and turbidity, which cause decreasing of light penetration and of environment quality for the coral growth. Sedimentation and high...

The nearshore zone is an active zone that can be quite inhospitable to humans due to violent wave breaking and strong rip currents. Rip currents are shore normal jet-like currents that typically extend from near the shoreline out past the line of breaking waves. Observations have concluded that a rip current system generally consists of 4 parts....

In 2000 the Dutch government chose a new point of view for the Dutch rivers: “Room for the River”. This viewpoint is the basis for a new approach of high water protection in the Netherlands. Instead of strengthening and raising the dikes, solutions must be based on space and spatial quality. One of the suggested measures is the addition of...

For a proper management of rivers and river bends in particular, it is important to have good models to predict the flows through bends. It is important that those developed models are well validated with measurements to demonstrate the usefulness of the models. This research is a validation of the Delft3D-FLOW model which is a model that is...

The Lai Giang inlet located in Binh Dinh province incorporates various features of the estuaries in the Central part of Vietnam. Belonging to the micro-tidal and wave-dominant coast and influenced by the monsoon regime, the inlet has a seasonal character. During the dry season, as the river flow diminishes, the wave action causes high level of...

This study describes a theoretical approach of a physical description of the notional permeability factor in the stability formulae of Van der Meer [1988]. Caused by the empirical character of these stability formulae a physical description is not available for the notional permeability factor. In practice this leads to ambiguities in...

In this thesis, an investigation is described to the measured horizontal displacements of a quay wall in the Port of Rotterdam. This quay wall was built in 2003 to replace an existing jetty. A combined tubular wall was installed and some of the concrete jetty piles were reused as foundation piles for the relieving platform. Anchorage for the...

New Profile for the Amsterdam-Rhinecanal The aim of this thesis is to design a new profile for the Amsterdam-Rhine canal. The new profile needs to be well navigable and requires to have stable bank constructions. Simultaneously several social aspects have to be taken into consideration. The assignment is summarized as follows: Design a new...

It is common practice to protect subsea pipelines by embedding them into the soil. Trenches can be made before or after the pipelines have been laid. In the latter case, the excavation process is called post-trenching. The essence of post-trenching, as handled in this thesis, is erosion of sand by a water-jet. The literature study focused on the...

Piles subjected to horizontal soil displacements are a common phenomenon at constructions next to soil embankments, for example an abutment of a bridge. Shell factors play an important role in the analysis of these piles with 2-dimensional (2D) design methods. This study investigates if the limitations of a 2D method, in relation to the 3...

Rijkswaterstaat is responsible for maintaining the fairway of the river Waal for navigation for more than a hundred years. In the past problem areas, which cause hindrance for navigation and block the fairway, were prevented with structural measures. Dredging was used as a last resort. In 2005 the desired fairway depth was increased from BRV -2...

In order to build structures in the hyper saline environment of the Dead Sea it might be beneficial to use salt as a construction material. The Dead Sea is a tectonically active area with a subsoil consisting of at least eight meters of salt. It is a challenge to construct in this kind of environment, especially since no design criteria exist...

The area of the Merwedes is a transition zone between a tide-dominated area and a river-dominated area. With increasing river discharge, the influence of river flow dominates in this part of the Rhine-Meuse Delta. The composition of the river bed of the Merwedes is also a transitional area, because of the presence of both sand and mud. It is...

The overtopping empirical formulas calculate the discharge only at the top of the crest of a coastal protection structure. On the other hand, the tolerable overtopping discharges are defined at certain points behind the crest where the total overtopping is reduced. The scope of this thesis is to find an empirical formula to describe the...
