Mobile jack-up units remain favourable in the offshore industry due to its capability to self-install and ability to work in moderate water depth. Prior to its mobilization to the site location, it is required to have a site-specific assessment (SSA). The SSA will identify any potential problems related to foundation conditions during...

Coastal inundation models are benefited by timeliness of the predictions, not only when it comes to real-time forecasting but also considering risk assessment studies and sensitivity analysis. Numerical models however are often subjected to a trade-off between accuracy and efficiency, especially when dealing with large geographic scales. In this...

Although mangrove forests have proven to contribute to wave dissipation significantly, these ecosystem are threatened mainly by the expanding aquaculture. International or nationwide applied greenbelt policies are often used for the preservation of the mangroves and hence the flood hazard reduction, without taking local (hydrodynamic) conditions...

Closure dams are structures that are used to close off basins, usually from the sea. A sand closure is the construction of a closure dam made out of sand. During the last stage of a sand closure, there is a closure gap through which the tide forces a current with flow velocities up to five metres per second. The flow pattern that occurs during a...

To determine the nominal diameter of armour rock for a rubble mound breakwater, the ‘Van der Meer’-formula is frequently used. It requires the so-called 'notional permeability' parameter P, which has been defined for a limited number of structures. Often designed structures deviate from these defined lay-outs. To determine the notional...

Wave energy is a promising renewable resource for the extraction of energy. To increase the efficiency of this technology a parabolic reflection wall is located behind a wave farm of heaving point absorber wave energy converters (WECs) to increase the power output of the WEC array by altering the wave field. The WECs are modelled with patches of...

In the offshore industry rock is used for different kind of applications, such as scour protection and pipeline protection. In deep water operations, but also increasingly in shallow water operations, use is made of the method by guiding the rock from the water surface to the seabed with a fallpipe. During a rock placement operation a current...
