Van Mechelen, J. (author)
Multifunctional use of the flood defences is as old as the flood defences themselves. Historically infrastructure, housing and livestock are located on the flood defences. Over the years, the cities along the rivers became bigger and bigger. With the still increasing demand for spatial development it is inevitable to also start combining other...

This thesis has as subject the shielding effect of piles on the front wall of quay walls. The reason for writing this paper is to find an answer to the difference between field measurements and design calculations of stresses and deflections in the front wall of a special type of quay wall in the Port of Rotterdam. The relevance of this issue...

This MSc thesis report discusses a greenfield deep-sea port development in a developing country along a shallow oceanic coast. A port layout is developed based on a fictional cargo forecast. In the interest of port adaptivity, this layout is kept flexible as possible. The design is subsequently checked with regard to wave penetration and...

The distance between marinas along the Dutch coast is large. By building marinas on strategic locations along the coast, sailing times can be reduced significantly. However, building marinas bordering the North Sea is expensive due to the lack of sheltering from waves. Hook of Holland is such a strategic location, located at a distance of 30...

At the entrance of the IJzer River estuary in Belgium a storm surge barrier is being constructed. This raises a couple questions: At what safety level can the barrier best be built? What barrier type suits the specific site conditions the best? What are the consequences of a storm surge barrier at that location, and how can they be solved? This...

Introduction While the world moves towards modern renewable energy sources, these sources are not always available which makes them unreliable. At the same time, problems of balancing the daily peak-demand is still performed with expensive fossil fueled units. Sitting perfectly in between supply and demand is a solution with the potential of...

Dit rapport richt zich op het ontwerp van een permanente en duurzame onderbouw voor het offshore hoogspanningsstation ALPHA in de vorm van een kunstmatig eiland. Het eiland ALPHA zal dienen als een “stopcontact” voor de windparken voor de Belgische kust. Het doel is om de ontwerpcomponenten die van het belang zijn bij het ontwerp van een...

This thesis tests the influence of the under layer profile on the stability of the armour layer of concrete interlocking armour units. The analysis is aimed to offer insight into the influence of different under layer profiles on the stability of the armour layer. Furthermore the thesis includes a test of the design guideline of the under layer...

The Mississippi River is one of the most engineered rivers in the world. Levees, bank revetments and training dikes ensure navigability and safety against ?ooding. Construction of dams in the upstream branches led to a decay in sediment supply of 70% during the last 100 years. Due to man-made constrictions, more sediment is spilled out in the...

At the construction of 'Maasvlakte 2' in 2012, two sand closures were constructed. Sand is in most cases the most profiting construction material. The processes and the amount of sand losses which occur during the construction of a closure contain large uncertainties. In order to construct a closure, the production of sand has to be larger than...

The thesis aims to find the changes in design and execution to immersed tunnels in subarctic regions. The Orlovsky Tunnel in St. Petersburg serves as a case study. The Orlovsky tunnel is a 1600 m tunnel in a rapid flowing river. the ice regime of the Neva River is characterized by frazil ice, which causes hanging ice jams and anchor ice....

More than five years after Hurricane Ike devastated the Galveston Bay Area, the most critical challenge remains; reducing flood vulnerability. In response to Hurricane Ike’s disastrous impact, several structural flood risk reduction strategies have been proposed. Some advocating local solutions, others advocating system-wide coastal barriers....

This study is aiming to improve the understanding of hydrodynamic circulation in large shallow lakes. The Lake Taihu, the third largest lake in east China, is picked up as the study area for three reasons. The basin of Lake Taihu is considered as the most populated and developed area as a backyard of Shanghai. Lake Taihu is a typical shallow...

Deltares is currently involved with multiple Angolan companies to advice on several coastal projects along the Angolan coast, especially in the Luanda area. Luanda is expanding rapidly trying to keep up with its economic growth as such coastal projects like land reclamation occur often these days. Still there is little understanding of the...

Shore-parallel submerged breakwaters (SBWs) appear as an attractive form of coastal protection. Compared to their emergent counterpart there is no impact on the beach amenity and aesthetics. In addition, there is a possibility for recreational purposes. However, the actual application of SBWs is often discouraged because the complexity of the...

Klerk, W.J. (author)
In the Netherlands flood risks are often assessed by using a dike ring approach. This approach has, aside from many advantages, also some disadvantages. The main disadvantage is that, when zooming in on a small area, the effect of the system on that small area and vice versa, is or cannot be accounted for properly. Research has shown that for a...

Wave transmission is a very important design parameter for submerged porous breakwater design, as it defines the dimensions of the breakwater as well as the cost and construction process. The spatial distribution of the wave transmission parameter influences the current pattern on the lee of the breakwater and therefore the sediment transport...

The city of Itajaí is located in the province of Santa Catharina in Brazil. The people of Itajaí have been coping with flood risk for the past decades. During normal conditions the Itajaí-Açu River is a rather calm river that is used for navigation and the harbour area. Recovering from the past two floods in 2008 and 2011 have cost more than...

Pipeline covers on the seabed are called near-bed structures which are generally made of rip rap. The crest height of a near-bed structure is such that waves do not break over it. Near-bed structures are used to protect pipelines against fishing equipment, ship anchors, dropped objects and preventing destabilizing of the pipeline. There are two...

A new approach in coastal maintenance is the application of a large scale nourishment as natural feeder of the coast. The Sand Motor constructed near Kijkduin on the Holland Coast is a pilot project of this new nourishment strategy. The objective of this research is to contribute to a better understanding of the sediment transport processes at...
