We have designed this website to inform and facilitate current students, prospective students, alumni, scientists, practitioners, media, colleagues and our staff on our field of focus. Our homepage offers access to section-related information that we control and update, to our direct "Delft" environment and it offers a login to our staff.
Planting trees in the largest wave-testing site in the world
Can trees truly give us a break from floods? Bas Hofland (TU Delft) and two colleagues from Deltares and NIOZ are building the first forest ever in the largest wave-testing site in the world: the Delta Flume. They hope to make this experiment possible via crowdfunding.
In-depth analysis of safety for swimmers around the Sand Engine
Pumping huge volumes of sand onto the coastline has effects on currents, waves and swim safety. Max Radermacher has compiled the first analysis of this problem to allow targeted measures (such as extra coastguards) to be taken where necessary. Radermacher will be awarded a PhD at TU Delft for his work on this subject on Friday 15 June.
