"Hydraulic load reduction as function of depth in a filter layer consisting of logs"| Professor of graduation: Prof. dr. ir. W.S.J. Uijttewaal, supervisors: Ir. H.J. Verhagen (TU Delft) , Dr. ir. J.D. Bricker (TU Delft), Ir. A. Sieben (Rijkswaterstaat)

The main objective of this research is to look whether itis feasible to use logs as bottom protection to prevent the formation of scour holes. Therefore, this research provides an insight of the hydraulic load reduction as function of depth in the filter layer which consist of multiple log carpets. Subsequently, the effect of the filter on the underlying soil will be regarded. Thereafter, the results will be compared to current open granular filters and concluded whether thesame formulas could be applied in case of logs as bottom protection.
