The inundation height of the Tohoku tsunami of 2011 exceeded the design levels of many coastal barriers and several structures collapsed. Hundreds of seawalls and breakers are (planned to be) (re)built in the Tohoku district. There is much debate about the conventional tsunami walls and it is therefore suggested to consider alternative tsunami...

This thesis report considers the topic of sustainable marina development. This term can be understood to be a combination of two terms; “sustainable development” and “marina”. Sustainable development in this research study has been considered in relation to the coastal zone and basically entails an approach to ensure a balance between the...

A multidisciplinary project at Universidad Católica de la Santísima Concepción, supervised by the Delft University of Technology. Coquimbo is a port city approximately 400 km north of Santiago and lies next to La Serena. Coquimbo was recently hit by a tsunami on the 16th of September 2015. Most damage occurred in Coquimbo Bay, which is the scope...

In this thesis, the improvement and extension of the North Sea Storm Atlas is studied. The North Sea Storm Atlas is a new statistical approach for rapid flood forecasting in coastal areas. The method is based on a large database of potential weather scenarios. A detailed hydrodynamic numerical model (WAQUA-in-Simona/DCSM98) has been used to...

The main goal in this research is to predict how translation waves evolve in a canal and what the consequences for the workability of water-borne construction equipment are. Translation waves arise due to filling and emptying of lock systems. In this research the measures to reduce effects of translation waves are control options related to the...

This research comprised of an investigation into outer-dike flood risks. Both direct and indirect risks were considered and an extensive uncertainty analysis was performed. Additionally, an assessment on environmental risks and protective measures was made based on the pilot of the industrial harbour the Botlek.

Double Master of Science in Hydraulic Engineering (Civil Engineering and Geosciences) and Applied Mathematics (Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science) - It is of importance to know how the water is behaving in rivers due to the dangers, such as flooding and eroding of land, it can bring with it. Present day we are still...

Uncertainties about climate change and the energy market constitute a major challenge in designing a pumping station. To tackle this challenge, a robust design is needed, that performs satisfactory under a wide variety of future conditions. Multi-Objective Robust Simulation Optimization (MORSO) was applied, to create a robust re-design for...

Wave climate in harbours determines for a significant part the efficiency of harbour operations. A good prediction of the hydrodynamics is therefore regarded as indispensable, which is often done by means of advanced numerical modelling. This study is a part of the Joint Industry Project XBeach. The goal of this research is to determine the...

The investigation into the dynamic behavior of a cable during installation was done with the aim of improving cable installation for safety, operational and commercial value. In order to increase the operational limit of the vessel during cable installation, the investigation into improvement systems was desired. The workability of a vessel...

The offshore wind market is growing rapidly and will take a significant share in the total energy supply. Offshore wind energy is usually generated by large wind turbines. To transport the generated energy to transformer platforms or the mainland large sub-sea power cables are used. These cables are installed by means of a cable installation...

Due to the removal of mangrove forests, the coastal zone of Demak district has suffered from severe erosion. One of the proposed solutions to restore the sediment balance and encourage mangrove re-establishment, is the construction of semi-permeable dams. This study aims to optimise the design of such structures. A 2DH site-specific model was...

To counteract relative sea level rise, Rijkswaterstaat nourishes the Dutch coast with sand. This sand spreads out over the shoreface zone, beach and dunes. One of the nourishment types is the shoreface nourishment. In this thesis, data of historical shoreface nourishments along the Dutch coast is analysed to find the factors that influence this...

The strength of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) will decrease due to climate change. However, the magnitude of this decrease is still under debate, since uncertainties exist about the driving mechanisms of the sinking branch of AMOC. Conceptual models have shown that sinking is located at the lateral boundaries of the...

The objective of this research is to explore the feasibility of detecting sandy beaches at a high spatial level, using satellite images. A pixel-based classification scheme of the four classes selected (sand, mud, vegetation and gravel) is conducted, using Landsat 8 Top-of-Atmosphere images (years 2014 and 2015) and Google Earth Engine. Moreover...

The objective of this thesis was analyzing and evaluating different sources of wave data. Wave data from two hindcasts, satellite altimetry and wave buoys were compared with each other in order to validate different data sets. These datasets provided to be useful tools in determining the wave climate along the coast of Myanmar.

Door menselijke ingrepen zoals versmalling en rechttrekken van de rivier, winning van bouwstoffen en de bouw van waterwerken krijgen Nederlandse rivieren steeds minder zand en grind aangevoerd. De stroomsnelheid en daarmee de erosie nemen toe. Er ontstaan grote ontgrondingskuilen, die het risico op het bezwijken van de oever vergroten. Om dit...
