Thoughts on Large Scale Coastal Behavior
Large scale coastal behaviour (LSCB) deals with the development of coastal profiles and sediment budgets of a large coastal stretch (order tens of km's) over a considerable...

Hatchie River and Schoharie Creek Bridge Failures
Within a 2-year period two large bridges collapsed into flooded rivers resulting in a total of 18 people plunging to their deaths. Both bridges had been inspected by probing, but had not...

Wegwijs—Amsterdam—A Dual Mode Routeguidance Plan
Wegwijs-Amsterdam stands for a plan to test the feasibility of a dual-mode route-guidance system based on a network of beacons which give the driver route-guidance to reach a pre-selected...

Coastal Maintenance—The Netherlands
The government of The Netherlands decided in the summer of 1990 to maintain the coastline at the position of 1990. This will be done mainly by artificial beach nourishment. The costs will...

The Concept of the New Waterway Storm Surge Barrier: Reliability as an Integral Part of a Nation's Sea Water Defense System
In the southwest of the Netherlands a storm surge barrier is to be built in the waterway that gives access to the port of Rotterdam. Strict design conditions ensure that only very slight...

Design Considerations for Blast Containment Structures

Control of Bank Erosion in The Netherlands. State-of-the-art
In the Netherlands the protection against flooding and the effects of inland navigation have always been extremely important. Many problems related to these items, among them erosion and...

Safety Against Inundation

Rehabilitation Strategies for Urban Drainage Systems—A European Perspective
Rehabilitation of urban drainage system is needed in many old European cities. This is in part due to the required structural upgrading of the existing sewerage system. But rehabilitation...

Artificial Recharge and Water Supply in The Netherlands
In 1984 infiltration by surface spreading was 156 million m3, serving 15% of total supply of drinking water in the Netherlands. Already for some...

Quality Changes of River Rhine and Meuse Water Upon Basin Recharge in the Netherlands' Coastal Dunes: 30 Years of Experience
A wide spectrum of quality changes of river Rhine and Meuse water is presented, on a global scale after pre-treatment, dune infiltration and post-treatment. Attention is focussed on the...

Deepwell Infiltration in the North-Holland Dune Area
Deep well infiltration now generally is considered the cue for the future extensions of artificial ground water recharge in or outside the dunes. The Provincial Waterworks of North-Holland...

Infiltration Wells in the Lakes Around the Future Markerwaard Polder
Drainage and reclamation of the Markerwaard polder in the Netherlands may cause damage to buildings and infrastructure in the eastern part of North-Holland because of subsidence. Drawdown...

Modelling as a Tool for Analysis and Assessment of North Sea Pollution
This paper briefly describes the analysis of pollution inputs into the area considered and the application of modelling techniques to quantify the hydrodynamics and related transport phenomena...

Realisations and Restrictions: Application of Numerical Models to Concrete Structures

Dredged Spoil Storage Basin in the Coastal Waters Near Rotterdam
The maintenance dredging for the Rotterdam harbour area amounts to 23 million m**3 per year, 10 million m**3 of which is polluted to such an extent that a controlled storage is required....

Asphalt Revetments for Slope Protection in the Arctic
Experience in the Netherlands demonstrates that slope protection of coastal embankments subjected to heavy wave action can be accomplished with lining systems made of mixtures of asphalt...

Placing of Impermeable Underwater Membranes
An impermeable underwater membrane has been applied successfully in the construction of a lowered road section in the Netherlands. In this paper the construction technique is discussed...

Safe Landfilling of Contaminated Dredging Spoil
This paper deals with the assessment of the expected emissions of toxic substances from highly contaminated harbor dredged material. The material in question arises from the canal between...
