Nieuw project gestart: Improving fines capture prediction: verification application and improvement of Delft3D-Slurry (COSIA)
One of the key challenges in Delta Technology is related to possibilities of building on and with soft material. Soft materials (e.g. from dredged material and mine tailings) can be reused to form robust water defences, enclosure dams and for land building. The material can be used to combat settlement in Sustainable Delta Cities, as a cost-effective material for flood defences, and as the basis for nature-based land reclamations like Marker Wadden. As such, “Bouwen met Slib” has been identified as an important innovation to strengthen the international position of Dutch engineering companies.
This project will deliver a new version of the numerical tool Delft3D to improve prediction of geometry and material properties distribution in fine sediments and disposal site deposits.
