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...

Holland's Fight Against the Sea
The Netherlands have always been threatened by the sea, its Delta Region most of all. After the catastrophic floods of 1953, the Delta Plan for the strengthening of coastal defenses and...

Design of Dunes as Coastal Protection in the Delta Area of the Netherlands

Probabilistic Design of Dunes

Progress Since 1979 in the Netherlands
Since the last progress-report still more emphasis has been laid on quality aspects of surface waters. Municipalities as well as Provinces and the national government are responsible for...

Welded and Bolted Beam-to-Column Connections
For many years research on welded and bolted beam-to-column connections has been carried out in The Netherlands, with particular emphasis on those connections which cannot transmit the...

Institutional Aspects of Stormwater Detention

Fendering Requirements/Design Fender Impact Criteria

Wave Run-up Influence on Overtopping of Levees
A procedure for calculating probabilities of overtopping from the combined occurrence of floods and wave run-up with an application to a section of the Waal river in the Netherlands is...

Top-to-Bottom Construction in High-Rise Buildings
This top-to-bottom construction method, called jackblock is a cousin of lift-slab. The main components are the jack and concrete block, hence the name. The top story of a building is constructed...

Ground Movements by Coal Mining in the Netherlands

Mining Subsidence in the East Netherlands

Wind Induced Flow of Water in Network
Increased eutrophication of the marshes and lakes in the polder district of Vollenhove in the Netherlands promoted research into the transport of pollutants through the system. The marshes...
