Innovative nourishment techniques evaluation

Objetivo



NOURTEC aims to draw a set of generalized conclusions on the design, the effectiveness and the feasibility of shoreface nourishment techniques in different coastal environments.
This will be achieved through a comparative analysis of three full-scale experiments of different nourishment techniques (i.e. shoreface nourishments and combinations of shoreface and beach nourishments) implemented in three countries located in the North Sea (Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark) and representing a range of hydrodynamic and morphological conditions.

Common design parameters will be defined for all three experiments describing the different design objectives which will then constitute the basic elements in the monitoring and measurements programme together with the dominant processes. Correlations will then be derived of the design parameters with the pertinent physical parameters.

Whilst analysis of the field data will be based on statistical methods, state-of-the-art mathematical models of coastal morphodynamics will be used in a diagnostic mode to analyze dominant processes and to derive indications of future effects on coastal preservation.
