Fine-grained Sediment Transport in Graadyb Tidal Area

Model simulations of the transport and sedimentation of fine-grained sediment dredged in Esbjerg Harbour and dumped in the Grådyb estuary. Establishment of transport pathways and sedimentation patterns. Possible long term consequences on morphology from dumping the sediment in the North Sea.
Denmark, 2004


The harbour of Esbjerg is situated in the Danish Wadden Sea of the North Sea that is characterised by high tidal variations with a high load of suspended sediments. This causes siltation of Esbjerg Harbour requiring yearly maintenance dredging of approximately 460,000 m³ of which 40,000 m³ is too contaminated to be dumped into the Wadden Sea. The harbour has proposed that a confined disposal site with an area of 26 hectare and a volume of 520,000 m³ should be constructed at the shallow part of the Wadden Sea in the harbour area. This site will have a capacity for about 20 years of disposal. The surplus water will be discharged to the sea. DHI is preparing an EIA and an application for the environmental license for the project. A mathematical model has been set-up concerning discharge of contaminants (heavy metals, antifouling agents and organic pollutants like PAH) from the disposal site. It includes a physical model describing the dispersal of pollutants from all pollution sources in the area so that the impact on the environment from all sources can be assessed. Based on the model an ecotoxicological assessment of the impact from the present situation and with the impacts from the discharge from the confined disposal site has been carried out.

Plage de la Nourriguel, phase 3

2D numerical modelling study for the design of a nourished beach inside the Lorient estuary. The investigations include modelling of nearshore wave transformation, hydrodynamic flow and sediment transport.

Dadar Beach

Dadar - Prabhadevi Beach in Mahim Bay, Mumbai is one of few public beaches in Mumbai. The quality and the area of the beach have been steadily degrading due to in-appropriate building of houses and compound walls too close to the beach, combined with the natural erosion of the beach. A group of concerned citizens represented by P.K. Das & Associates has prepared a restoration project, which includes nourishment of the existing beach in order to widen the beach area. P. K. Das & Associates has commissioned DHI Water & Environment (DHI) to make a coastal study including wave and hydraulic modelling with the objectives of studying beach stability and providing design data for the new beach. Recommendations of grain size, beach slope and beach orientation for the new beaches has been listed in the report.
