This master thesis focuses on the transportation of coal from two coalmines in South Kalimantan to the Java sea. Coal has to be transported from the coal mine area, situated hundred kilometre land inward, to a location with sufficient water depth, at the mouth of the river Barito. The biggest challenge for the new transport system is to increase...

Port of Rotterdam Authority decided to construct Maasvlakte 2 to cope with demand for port areas. Maasvlakte 2 is a business case driven project. The outcome of the business case has led to the construction of an entire sea defense and the realization of port areas in phases, in response to client demand. The phased development results in the...

Due to the closure of the Haringvliet in 1970 as part of the Delta works and the opening of the Beerdam in 1997, the course of the tidal flow in the Rhine-Meuse delta has changed. The tidal flow from and towards the Haringvliet is now completely taking place through the branches that connect the Haringvliet with the Nieuwe Maas and Nieuwe...

Existing structures are deteriorating. The deterioration depends on many factors, including workmanship, and therefore it is difficult to predict the exact deteriorating in time. By inspections it is possible to measure the deterioration and create a model with statistics and curve-fitting. Because of the high consequences C of failure of...

Nowadays, the ecological effects of dredge plumes are usually managed based on the precautionary principle. Predictions of suspended sediment levels are made, which have to be compared to thresholds set by the responsible authority. Failing to comply may cause a project to be delayed and thus lead to additional costs. The precautionary principle...

Submerged breakwaters (SBWs) are becoming increasingly popular as alternative coastal defence system due to the lack of impact on beach amenity and aesthetics compared to common emerged beach protection measures. However, the recent significant amount of failing SBWs resulting in additional shoreline erosion reported in [Ranasinghe and Turner...

Objective Due the coastal protection program along the Dutch coast, the groins that first defended the coast against erosion, are now covered under sediment. Due to erosion the covered groins will resurface however. The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of the resurfacing groins on the hydrodynamics and sediment transport....

After the catastrophic flooding of New Orleans due to hurricane Katrina in the year 2005, the city’s hurricane protection system has been improved to provide protection against storms with at least a 100 year return period. This thesis investigates the risk to life in the post-Katrina situation for the New Orleans metro bowl. The risk to life is...

Parking problems in cities become more significant every day. Parking tariffs are going through the roof and parking spaces are limited. Therefore, cities are researching alternatives for parking on ground level and underground. One of these alternatives is parking underwater. One of these cities is Amsterdam. This city ranks number 5 on the...

In this thesis the current anchoring situation, especially in terms of occupancy and space use within anchorages, in the anchorages in the offshore approach of the port of Rotterdam in assessed by means of data analysis of historical data. Using this data analysis as input a stochastic simulation model is constructed in MATLAB to assess...

To improve the lightering conditions of bulk carriers in the outer harbor of IJmuiden, the lightering facility will be transfered to a new harbor basin that will be implemented at the location of the dredging depot in the former Averij harbor. The Dutch Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management (RWS) demands that down time of the...

Artificial beach and foreshore nourishments, as executed widely along the Dutch coast, change the nearshore morphology and current patterns significantly. Over the last decades the size of the nourishments has increased from 0.7 x 106 m3/km to over 6 x 106 m3/km. Groynes which were present along the southern Holland coast since the 19th century...

A large number of beach morphologies across the world exhibits nearshore sandbars with complex 3D patterns. During large storms, these shapes disappear and the bars get to a certain extent alongshore uniform. This phenomenon is called a reset. Numerous studies have been conducted on the development of the bar shapes (3D) or on the cross-shore...

Bigger ships are replacing the small ships, also at the Amsterdam-Rijnkanaal. A direct consequence is the use of larger main propellers and increased installed engine power in order to realize acceptable ship speeds. To improve the maneuverability, the power of auxiliary bow and stern propulsion systems has increased as well. This results in...

The long series (>30 year) of measurement data of erosion events at Narrabeen beach (NWS, Australia) provides insight in erosion volumes and their return periods in this area. The aim of this study was to replicate these data using XBeach in order to assess the validity of both the Joint Probability Model (JPM) and XBeach on beaches such as...

Infragravity waves are a common feature in the nearshore wave field and have a significant impact on numerous coastal processes. It is therefore important to accurately predict infragravity wave conditions at a given location. However, analytical relations do not exist with which to make such predictions and one has to rely on numerical models....

Traditionally, water based public transport has a large contribution to the accessibility of rural areas in the Netherlands. Initiated by the industrial revolution a major shift from water based to land based public transport occurred. Until recent history water based public transport was considered unfeasible. Nowadays land based transport...
