Offshore wind turbines are exposed to complex irregular and highly fluctuating environmental conditions. The analysis is, therefore commonly performed in the time domain, resulting in a time consuming and computationally demanding optimization process. In order to reduce the computational cost, an optimization approach using the principle of...

The Smit sawing wire system was used in the salvage operation of the Baltic Ace. The sawing wire was drilled underneath the wreck and connected to two barges on opposite sides. Winches were placed on the barges to make a controlled cut through the wreck by pulling the sawing wire back and forth. The cut was made in an upward direction. While the...

Momentarily the determination of the static stability of rock on mild slopes can be split in roughly two paths, the empirical and the physical approach. However, both the approaches have their limitations from which one could conclude that neither approach is currently an accurate description of the stability of rock on mild slopes under wave...

The offshore industry and especially the oil and gas production, has faced a remarkable growth in the last decades, causing an increase in the population of offshore structures. The overwhelming majority of these structures are bottom founded and mostly made out of steel. Over these decades much experience has been gained with the design and...

Dutch flood protections are assessed every five to six years in a nationwide safety assessment round. During the last assessment round large dike stretches in the Dutch Wadden Sea could not meet the safety requirements, and were assessed with failure. Dike strengthening is therefore needed in these areas. However, in front of these dike salt...

The Tha Chin River is a river in central Thailand, which starts in Chainat province as a branch of the Chao Phraya River and flows into the Gulf of Thailand at about 35 km southwest of Bangkok. The Tha Chin is one of Thailand’s most important rivers and it plays a vital role for the lives of over two million people living in this basin. Near the...

A large part of the Netherlands consists of polder area. Therefore the inhabitants have to rely on the Dutch flood defence system to protect them against floods. A vast network of drainage canals ensures that the seepage water and the precipitation water is transported from the polders toward the outside water. There are several mechanisms which...

Ladysmith, a small city in KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) had to deal with severe floods in the past. To prevent the city against floods like this, the Ladysmith Flood Protection Scheme was implemented in 1998. After the implementation of this scheme, there were still some floods. The goal of this project is to identify the causes of the floods...

The maximum wave run-up on a beach is an important factor in the design of coastal protection measures. Therefore, it is desired to predict this run-up based on numerical models. In this thesis, this is done with the use of the model XBeach. Wave run-up consists of multiple components: a swash height, S, and a wave set-up, <η>. The swash height...

Land reclamations in deltaric areas provide space to meet the demand for a safe place to live and work. Sand, a traditional filling material in some locations is becoming scarcer. An alternative filling material is mud. Mud consists of clay, silt, sand, organic material, water and gas. Therefore, it is a versatile material and difficult to...

In 2015 Georgetown, Guyana suffered from major flooding due to heavy rainfall. The use of a centuries-old agricultural drainage system for the urban drainage of the largest urbanized area of Guyana, poses problems considering flood safety. In 2016 a report was published by a ‘Dutch Risk Reduction Team’ (DRR Team) with recommendations on how to...

Ho Chi Minh City is flooded on a regular basis due to the lack of flood protection. Plans have been made to protect the city from flooding in the future and therefore a barrier is built at Phu Dinh. This barrier needs to fulfil three requirements. Firstly it should protect HCMC against a flood, as well resulting from tidal waves as from peak...

Confluences are special, complex elements within river systems which have been subject of much research. However, little attention has been given to the effects of density differences in confluences. The aim of this research is to see when and how density differences are important in confluences with respect to other occurring flow structures....

The Tilting Lock is an innovative solution for locations where road traffic crosses marine traffic overhead by a bridge. The occurrence of traffic jams at a bridge during the passage of vessels can be reduced by the construction of a Tilting Lock. By 'submerging' the vessels in the Tilting Lock underneath the bridge, the Tilting Lock increases...

Roukens, G.A. (author)
All harbours require frequent dredging to cope with sedimentation. In certain cases the deposited sediment/silt forms a weak soil layer referred to as fluid mud. The top layer is often used as nautical bottom, while its presence is not necessarily harmful to the vessel. This could lead to the conclusion that the safety margin underneath a vessel...

Coastal protection in the Mekong Delta is of paramount importance. The low-lying coastal area has always been vulnerable to flooding by extreme events, but the coastal erosion and consequent land losses have increased to alarming magnitude in the most recent years. This MSc thesis aims to pro- vide insight in the optimal protection strategy for...

Additional thesis - The Rhine river outflow has a major impact on the North Sea in front of the Dutch coast. It creates the Rhine ROFI (region of freshwater influence), a very complex three-dimensional volume of water with a relatively low salinity. Many researches have been conducted on this phenomenon. Now another complex factor is added: a...
