1. Bruins, R.J. (author). Morphological behaviour of shoreface nourishments along the Dutch coast: Data analysis of historical shoreface nourishments for a better understanding and design.

Degree: 2016, Delft University of Technology

To counteract relative sea level rise, Rijkswaterstaat nourishes the Dutch coast with sand. This sand spreads out over the shoreface zone, beach and dunes. One of the nourishment types is the shoreface nourishment. In this thesis, data of historical shoreface nourishments along the Dutch coast is analysed to find the factors that influence this behaviour. This research showed that there are two main categories in the migration of shoreface nourishments. The first one migrates only in cross-shore direction and alongshore migration is negligible, this mainly occurs at beaches without influence of surrounding structures and the outer delta of the Wadden Sea. The second one migrates onshore and in alongshore direction, this category occurs mainly southward of the outer delta of the Wadden Sea. The migration can be predicted by the behaviour of the original bar system. The first one exists at coasts with primarily cross-shore bar behaviour and the second one at coasts with primarily alongshore or no bar behaviour. For future application of shoreface nourishments, it is recommended to analyse the original bar system and determine the location of execution on this analysis. If the location is determined, even the prediction for the migration can be determined based on the behaviour of the original bar system.

2. Klein, M.D. Modelling rhythmic morphology in the surf zone.

Degree: 2006, Delft University of Technology

Coastal erosion is increasingly being prevented by the application of shoreface nourishments. Although they are applied successfully, their development and their impact on the coastal system is still difficult to predict. Especially the effects of shoreface nourishments on the already existing rhythmic bed forms in the surf zone are unknown. The importance of insight into the occurrence and behaviour of these rhythmic features in the surf zone lies in the fact that the rhythmic breaker bar topography might be mirrored on to the dry beach, thereby locally creating narrower and therefore weaker beaches. Besides, currents associated with these bed forms are hazardous for swimmers. The aim of this thesis is therefore to model these rhythmic morphological features in the surf zone with and without the presence of a shoreface nourishment in order to gain this insight. Using linear stability analyses and morphodynamic computations, it shows that, among others, the length of the shoreface nourishment is an important parameter for its impact on the length scale of the rhythmic bed forms in the surf zone.
