"Assessment of a Lagrangian 1DV modelling approach for turbidity currents" | Professor of graduation: Prof. dr. ir. W.S.J. Uijttewaal, supervisors: dr. ir. R.J. Labeur (TU Delft), ir. H.C.M. Hendriks (TU Delft), ir. T. Vijverberg (Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V.), prof. dr. ir. J.C. Winterwerp (Consultant).

Deltares and Boskalis developed a rapid assessment tool to estimate the thickness and density of turbidity currents generated by Water Injection Dredging. The tool applies a Lagrangian 1DV modelling approach. The implications of the assumptions of this modelling approach are assessed, comparing the results with a Eulerian 2DV calculation in Delft3D-FLOW.
