Van der Hoeven, R. (author)
In many coastal engineering problems the application of coastal structures to resolve these problems seems to be a proper solution. In a lot of cases, however, the implementation of coastal structures does not lead to the expected situation. Erosion management operations may have unwanted impacts on a coastal system. Decisions on the most...

During the execution of reclamation projects by Boskalis, often a temporary work channel and basin are required. This work channel is used by the dredging equipment to reach the project site as close as possible. The project site is often located in very shallow water which makes a channel necessary. The basin is used to transport the dredged...

It is common practice to protect subsea pipelines by embedding them into the soil. Trenches can be made before or after the pipelines have been laid. In the latter case, the excavation process is called post-trenching. The essence of post-trenching, as handled in this thesis, is erosion of sand by a water-jet. The literature study focused on the...

Wave fields in the close vicinity of a coastal structure can be very complex, this is especially the case during extreme storm conditions and for complex geometries. There is a growing interest for numerical simulation tools capable of predicting in detail the complex hydrodynamic loads due to waves and currents and its effect at structures. In...

Piles subjected to horizontal soil displacements are a common phenomenon at constructions next to soil embankments, for example an abutment of a bridge. Shell factors play an important role in the analysis of these piles with 2-dimensional (2D) design methods. This study investigates if the limitations of a 2D method, in relation to the 3...

With the construction of a process-based long-term morphological model (Delft3D) for the Mouth of the Columbia River (MCR), a first approach is made in trying to simulating the long-term morphodynamics of the MCR. Focus is on simulating the observed morphological changes for the post-jetty period of 1926-1958. The model is supplied with a high...

In this thesis, an investigation is described to the measured horizontal displacements of a quay wall in the Port of Rotterdam. This quay wall was built in 2003 to replace an existing jetty. A combined tubular wall was installed and some of the concrete jetty piles were reused as foundation piles for the relieving platform. Anchorage for the...

During the fall of 2003, an extensive measurement campaign called the “Nearshore Canyon Experiment” (NCEX) was set up along the coast of La Jolla, California. The project site covered an area in which two submarine canyons are located, respectively La Jolla and Scripps Submarine Canyon. Over 20 institutions collaborated on recording the...

There is a growing cruise market. To accommodate the growth of cruise shipping in North-West Europe, the developers Consortium ‘Cruiseport The Hague’ wants to construct an outer harbour at Scheveningen; to this day, the harbour of Scheveningen is not able to receive today’s large cruise ships. Obviously, a cruise mooring facility has to be...

De provincie Zuid-Holland wil de bereikbaarheid van de regio waarborgen en daarom het goederenvervoer over water stimuleren. Dit afstudeeronderzoek bevat een netwerkanalyse om de knelpunten bloot te leggen. Het aanbod van de infrastructuur heeft beperkingen. Vernauwingen, krappe bruggen, scherpe bochten en spitsuursluitingen zorgen er voor dat...

This thesis shows two methods of Extending the Coastline, namely Manmade Islands and Manmade Peninsulas. It explains the importance of coastline in urban development and for human beings. Previous practices of coastal extension in different parts of the world and related literature are studied. The thesis investigates the social, economic and...

Due to growing human activity in coastal zones, there is an increasing stress on salt marshes all over the world. These intertidal wetlands were often seen as coastal ‘wasteland’ and large areas were reclaimed for urban development and agriculture. In Puget Sound, a system of interconnected marine waterways and basins in the northwest of the...

Rijkswaterstaat is responsible for maintaining the fairway of the river Waal for navigation for more than a hundred years. In the past problem areas, which cause hindrance for navigation and block the fairway, were prevented with structural measures. Dredging was used as a last resort. In 2005 the desired fairway depth was increased from BRV -2...

Multilayered Safety (MLS) is seen as the next step in Dutch flood risk management. In the last decades the idea that only flood defenses can prevent floods gave way to the realization prevention can also be implemented along other lines, e.g. giving the rivers more space. The next thought was that next to preventing floods it should be possible...

Along the northern coast of Morocco order has been given for the construction of a large transshipment port in the Mediterranean Sea, at a designated project location around the city of Nador. On this green-field coastal stretch a new transhipment port will have to be developed for various types of cargo. Throughputs of the terminals will have...

The overtopping empirical formulas calculate the discharge only at the top of the crest of a coastal protection structure. On the other hand, the tolerable overtopping discharges are defined at certain points behind the crest where the total overtopping is reduced. The scope of this thesis is to find an empirical formula to describe the...

One of the failure mechanisms of a rubble mound breakwater is the failure of its armour layer. In order to determine the stability of an armour layer, the design load has to be defined, which is in fact the wave that attacks the structure. Being a highly stochastic phenomenon, the wave action is not easily defined, while there is always some...

The area of New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. A large part of the city got flooded due to bad design, construction and maintenance of the levee system. In order to increase the level of protection of the city, the levees are heightened and strengthened in the framework of the Hurricane and Storm Damage and Risk Reduction...

Long-term prediction of sediment transport and morphology has become increasingly important. One of the key issues in carrying out long-term modeling is to bridge the gap between short-term hydrodynamics varying from hours to days, and morphological changes, taking place over much longer periods. Lesser et al. (2004) and Roelvink (2006) have...
