The water quality at the beachfront of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, is currently insufficient to meet the Blue Flag standard, leading to health issues for the beach users. Since Durban can be recognised by its busy port and attractive beachfront, it is a major centre for tourism. This means that research on the source of this poor water quality and...

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...

Myanmar is dealing with a large data deficit, which is in contrast with the substantial need for it. The implementation of measuring techniques to obtain hydro- and morphodynamic data is an upcoming process. Measuring velocities can be valuable for calibrating models or giving estimates of sedimentation and erosion. An example of a measuring...

Large sedimentation is observed in the Yangon port area in Myanmar and this sediment is blocking the entrance channel into the port. The entrance channel is dredged intensively to keep it navigable but insight into the sedimentation processes is limited. The sedimented area rises above the water level in dry season and is known as the Inner Bar....

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...

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...

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 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...

Additional thesis with a size of 10 European Credits. A Finite Element Method model is established for an inflatable barrier. The inflatable storm barrier of Ramspol in the Netherlands is taken as reference project. The FEM program that is used is called EASY and is specialized in highly deformable structures. With the model, an optimal design...

This report focuses on the flooding problems in the Lower Moshi area, Tanzania. These floods are the result of the extremely large catchment of the Kilimanjaro region in combination with large peaks in precipitation during the short and the long rainy seasons. The river bordering the area of interest cannot handle these quantities of water which...

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)...
