Theses with IHE promotor J.A. Roelvink

(the above mentioned IHE professors do also have an appointment as TU Delft professor)

Theses of the department
Hydraulic PhD theses from 1960 until 2016
PhD theses before 1960
After 2016 the repository does not enter the issuing department any more as metadata, so you cannot list all theses from 2017 and later. Instead search on the name of the promoter (see above).

Doctoral theses (partly) made within the department of hydraulic engineering, where the promotor was not a professor of this department:

Year Author Title
1966 Vries, M. de Application of luminophores in sandtransport-studies
1970 Vreugdenhil, C.B. Computation of gravity currents in estuaries
1974 Fernandez Luque Erosion and transport of bed-load sediment
1995 Uittenbogaard, R.E. The Importance of Internal Waves for Mixing in a Stratified Estuarine Tidal Flow
1996 Donselaar. M.E. Barrier island coasts and relative sea level rise: preservation potential, facies architecture and sequence analysis
1998 Verlaan, P.A.J. Mixing of marine and fluvial particles in the Scheldt estuary
2001 Hooimeier, M. Reduction of Complex Computational Models


Advanced Search:

For finding a specific thesis with a known author, but unknown year, go to the repository and add in the search box  the name of that author (you may use wildcards, e.g. "Bos*". This also gives authors like Van den Bosch. However, this search also looks into the other fields, so you will also get hits with the term "bos..." in title, abstract, etc.

For finding a thesis on a specific topic, go to the repository and type some keywords (keywords are connected with logical OR). Also here you may use wildcards, e.g. "breakwater*". When you use two search terms, the a logical AND, is used, e.g. "breakwater* toe" means "breakwater* AND toe".

For a listing of the PhD theses guided by a given promotor, go to the repository and type in the search box the name of the promotor, e.g.. "vrijli*".

You may limit your search to specific years. In the box "year" you may enter one year or a range (e.g. 2003-2009, <2005, >2008).
