Deltares’ Engineer Wins Best Paper Student Award

Kees Nederhoff, coastal engineer at Deltares has won the best paper student award for his work “Modelling the Effects of Hard Structures on Dune Erosion and Overwash”.

The award was handed over to Kees during the Coastal Sediments 2015 conference, held in San Diego, CA, USA.

Kees investigated the morphodynamics (erosion and sedimentation) near buildings using XBeach. He first considered the theoretical aspects and applied the model on a field case of New Jersey during Hurricane Sandy, where significant erosion and overwash occurred.

His findings are relevant for the assessment of coastal safety against flooding in coastal towns all over the world.

The paper was based on his M.Sc. work at the TU Delft and Deltares on “Modelling the effects of hard structures on dune erosion and overwash”, which was supervised by Joost den Bieman and Marien Boers (both Deltares researchers).

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
