Within Royal HaskoningDHV an innovative concept is thought to be feasible as a new foundation for larger wind turbines in deeper waters. In this thesis the development of this innovative offshore wind turbine foundation was aided. The research focused on two topics: - Scour at this gravity based foundations. - Possible design optimisations with...

For decades, sub-sea pile driving has been performed to safely attach offshore and sub-sea infrastructure such as jackets, templates and manifolds to the supporting soil. In sub-sea pile driving, a hammer is lowered from an installation vessel and similarly descended until the (generally steel tubular) pile reaches his final penetration depth....

The objective of this study is to determine whether a floating terminal could be a suitable and feasible solution for the realisation of a new berthing location for the cruise ships of the future. This feasibility study is based on the amount of downtime of a terminal due to excessive motions because of wave loading. Therefore, this study...

Turbulence plays an important role in a broad range of engineering applications. In the industry RANS simulations are a common method for predicting turbulent flow. A broad range of RANS turbulence models have been developed over the past decades. For the assessment of complex three-dimensional flow fields Reynolds Stress Transport Models are a...

The existence of tidal flat is beneficial for human beings, but it faces the risk of being vanished by continuous intervention, either by nature or human. Therefore, researches about tidal-flat’s morphodynamics are required for the sake of its preservation. Here, the subject of the research is the Kapellebank tidal flat in the Westerschelde...

Breakwaters with single layer concrete armour are very commonly applied nowadays. Much research is available on the stability of single layer armour units on the seaward slope. However, rear slopes design methods for single layer armour units are rare. On rear side slopes usually similar sized units as on the seaward slope are applied. Limited...

Alongshore currents are currents parallel to the coastline. In coastal areas they are driven by a combination of wave and tidal forcing. In this study, the validity of the non-hydrostatic, wave-flow model SWASH to predict these currents is investigated. This is done by comparing model predictions with measurement observations. Observations were...

The Belgian Meuse is a river with a relatively low flood risk. The floodplains are narrow, and the estimated impact is not large until the flood reaches a magnitude of a once in a 200 years event. Flooding along the Belgian Meuse could however have an effect on the flood safety in the Netherlands, since there the flood defences are dimensioned...

The Hollandsche IJssel is a river between Rotterdam and Gouda and is protected from the main river system in the Netherlands by a storm surge barrier. The Hollandsche IJssel experiences several problems: the storm surge barrier dates from 1958 and has a relatively low closure reliability; three quarters of the dikes have been rejected according...

Hybrid particle-mesh methods attempt to combine the advantages of Eulerian and Lagrangian methods: Lagrangian particles are used for the advection, whereas a Eulerian background grid is used for computing the particle interactions. Such a hybrid approach is expected to have several benefits when simulating flows involving free surfaces or...

Bank protections are currently constructed with stone, wood, concrete and steel. NETICS has introduced a sustainable and commercially very attractive alternative called the GEOWALL. The goal of this study is to find a viable field of application within the quay structures by considering the arising challenges of a larger scale wall. Additionally...

As part of the Afsluitdijk project the discharge capacity, which is currently facilitated by two sluice complexes, is increased to cope with future sea level rise. It was decided to realise this by an innovative solution: the pump gate. The steel lifting gates, each containing three pumps, will be implemented in the existing sluice complex in...

Relative sea level rise and climate change, but also the migration of the growing world population to the coast, continuously increase the pressure on the coastal system. In combination with the increased awareness for sustainability, the interests in the coastal zone become integrated and complex. Integrated Coastal ZoneManagement (ICZM)...

Many breakwater projects start with the selection phase which consists of the consideration of alternatives. These breakwaters are required to protect ports, banks and habitat areas from significant wave action. Moreover, upcoming Design & Construct contracts drive contractors to perform the consideration of alternatives and design themselves....

People all around the world live and work in low-lying areas. Low-lying areas have to be protected against high water levels in rivers and at sea by a water protection system (e.g. by dunes, dikes and barriers). Dikes are an important component within water protection systems. Generally, dikes are described as elongated naturally occurring or...

A hydrodynamic study shows high flow velocities at the IJsselkop bifurcation during the design discharge of 16,000 m3/s. The study, performed in 2005, concludes that these velocities might affect 1) the stability of IJssel river bed and 2) the stability of the grass cover layer of the flood plain at the bifurcation. This report provides a better...

A demand to use mud as fill material for land reclamations has emerged over the past years. Such reclamations start with pumping a muddy suspension into an area enclosed by dikes. The particles in suspension then settle to form a mud layer, so that the supernatant can be removed. This filling process may be repeated several times to completely...

The United States of America – and more specific the state of Illinois – are dealing with a problem of Asian carps spreading from inward waterways to the Great Lakes. The Asian carp was originally brought to America to be used in study?s on agricultural pounds, but escaped after series of flooding. The Asian carp has no natural enemies in the...

Since their development in the 1970s, mesoscale atmospheric models have been used for a variety of meteorological applications. Over the years, the models have evolved and nowadays, state-of-the-art atmospheric models are capable of operating on spatial resolutions in the order of kilometres. In the hydraulic engineering community, atmospheric...
