“The influence of the Sand Engine on the sediment transports and budgets of the Delfland coast.” |Professor of graduation: Prof.dr.ir. S.G.J. Aarninkhof supervisors: Dr.ir. S. de Vries (TU Delft), Dr.ir. M.A. de Schipper (TU Delft), Dr. M.F.S. Tissier (TU Delft)

In 2011 the Sand Engine mega nourishment was installed at the Delfland coast. The Sand Engine has a significant influence on the morphology and morphodynamics in most of the Delfland coastal cell. The morphodynamics of the Delfland coast have been investigated for the first five years after construction of the Sand Engine.

A data analysis was performed on high-resolution bathymetry surveys. Both the redistribution of nourished sediment volumes and the adjustment of beach profiles after nourishment have been addressed.
