As a result of increased economic development in Colombia, the pressure on the natural system has increased. The export of natural resources through international ports at both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea causes conflicts between infrastructure and the dynamic behaviour of the coastal system. This Master Thesis focusses on the bay...

Fluctuating oil and gas prices, coupled with initiatives toward energy security, drive the global storage market of oil and gas. A tank farm, often referred to as a terminal, is an industrial facility for the storage of the oil and/or petrochemical products. Vopak's biggest terminal, Vopak Terminal Europoort (VTE), has an immense capacity of 25...

Morphodynamic models are widespread in coastal engineering practice and indispensable to predict the effectiveness of (large-scale) sandy interventions. These models enable quantification of the effects on enhanced safety against flooding and on environmental impact over time, based on physical processes such as hydrodynamics and sediment...

The objective of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the morphological behaviour of a sandy foreshore in the Markermeer, along the Houtribdijk. The research is primarily based on monitoring data obtained from the Building with Nature (EcoShape) project “Pilot Houtribdijk”. The focus is on the morphological development of the...

Field studies with in-situ sediment sampling demonstrate the spatial variability in grain size on a sandy beach. However, conventional numerical models that are used to simulate the coastal morphodynamics ignore this variability of sediment grain size and use a uniform grain size distribution of mostly around and assumed fine grain size. This...

The Rhine ROFI ( region of freshwater influence) is a dynamic area where various processes and timescales come together. Research has shown that stratification caused by the freshwater outflow of the Rhine alters the tidal currents in front of the Dutch coast. In the case of the Netherlands the tide behaves like a kelvin wave, which causes...

The Netherlands which means “lowlands”, constitutes an area of approximately 41,528 km2. Almost half of those areas are below the sea level. Today, more than 2,400 kilometres of dikes shields the sunken-flat land. Regular safety assessment of the dikes are constantly conducted, and the evaluation determines whether planning or dike...

This document describes a study into the influence of alongshore bathymetric variability on currents which form a risk to bathers. Changes to coastal zone management along the Delfland Coast have given rise to questions on the influence of alongshore bathymetric variability on bather risk. Extensive measurement data is available from two...

Abstract: For a design purpose, this study mainly focuses on the channel resistance with different spatial distribution of the vegetation patches. Even under the same blockage factor, the total patch numbers in the channel, the distance between two vegetation patches both in the lateral and longitudinal direction as well as the length ratio of...

To help to provide a desperately needed coastal protection strategy for the Mekong Delta in Vietnam this research looks into the possibilities for natural and sustainable coastal defence systems, including mangroves and active sediment management, such as a nourishment. The coastline of the Mekong Delta suffers from severe erosion and mangrove...

To research if the current practice of mandating individual flood risk assessments supports the goal of an optimal flood risk a case study is performed in this thesis. The flood risk in 2050 is assessed for the liquid bulk storage terminals of the company Vopak located in and near the Botlek area of Rotterdam harbor. The used flood risk...

Knoop, C.J.T. (author)
The Netherlands is a low-lying country which is protected against floods by a flood protection system consisting of dikes, dunes and other hydraulic structures. The quality of the flood defense system should be of a sufficiently high level to guarantee protection against a flood. If a flood defense is unsafe, measurements are required to improve...

Over one hundred scour holes are located in the Rhine-Meuse delta. These scour holes have relatively large depths and steep slopes and could pose a risk to the stability of river banks and hydraulic structures, especially since some scour holes are still growing. Scour holes develop at locations where either the hydrodynamics or the erodibility...

The river Rhine is subject to a multitude of controls imposed by nature and humans. Natural controls refer to climate and tectonics, while human activity is represented by a series of interventions aimed at flood protection, navigation, land reclamation and exploitation of river supplied resources such as hydro energy and sediment. These...

Floating Production, Storage & Offloading (FPSO) units are extensively utilized in remote offshore areas for deep water developments where a pipeline infrastructure is not an economically viable solution. Traditionally, FPSOs are converted from oil tankers, which entails that they are not equipped with an appropriate mooring system. A spread...

A crown wall is a gravity based L- shaped concrete structure on top of a rubble mound breakwater. Functions of a crown wall are: reduction of wave overtopping, enable transport on the breakwater and placement of pipelines on top of the flat surface. Marine contractor Van Oord was awarded to extend a breakwater with a crown wall on top, located...

220 miles offshore the West-Australian coast lies the Ichthys Field. In 2013 Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) was contracted to install the umbilicals, risers and flowlines for the Ichthys Project, including the installation of several in-line structures such as in-line tees (ILT) and flow-line end terminations (FLET). The ship assigned to these...
