  • Holland's Barriers to The Sea

    The Delta Works in the Netherlands (Holland) is the largest flood protection project in the world. This project consists of a number of surge barriers, for examples: 1- The Oosterscheldekering is the largest of the 13 ambitious Delta Works series of dams and storm surge barriers and it is the largest surge barrier in the world, 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) long. The dam is based on 65 concrete pillars with 62 steel doors, each 42 metres wide. It is designed to protect the Netherlands from flooding from the North Sea. 2- The Maeslantkering is a storm barrier with two movable arms; when the arms are open the waterway remains an important shipping route however when the arms close a protective storm barrier is formed for the city of Rotterdam. Closing the arms of the barrier is a completely auto...

  • New coastal defenses by using nature itself

    TU Delft TV - BeachRock The idea behind BeachRock is that certain enhanced natural attributes are being used to defend vulnerable coastlines against the growing threat of climate change. The continuous movement of water and wind erodes coastlines around the world threatening people living close to the sea. To defend these coastlines different methods can be used. One of these methods is the 'Sand Motor', a manmade stretch of beach with millions of cubic meters sand. The natural movement of waves helps eroding the Sand Motor and deposits sand further north on the Dutch coast where it is needed to prevent further coastal decline. A different defence approach is being researched at the Delft University of Technology. Below the surface a natural process helps gluing sand grains together. ...

Hidden Atlantic Wall WW2 - Berlin Fortress Documentary - National TV The Atlantic Wall surface was an extensive air conditioner of seaside defense and also strongholds built by Nazi Germany between 1942 and 1944 along the coast of continental Europe as well as Scandinavia as a protection versus an anticipated Allied intrusion of Nazi-occupied Europe from Great Britain throughout World War II. Hitler purchased the renovation of the fortifications in 1942. Almost a million French workers were composed to build it. The wall surface was regularly mentioned in Nazi propaganda, where its dimension as well as strength were usually exaggerated. The strongholds included gigantic seaside guns, batteries, mortars, as well as weapons, as well as hundreds of German troops were posted in its defenses. When the Allies at some point attacked the Normandy beaches in 1944, a lot of the defenses were stormed within hours. Today, ruins of the wall exist in all of the nations where the wall was developed, although numerous frameworks have actually fallen under the sea or have been destroyed over the years. On 23 March 1942, Hitler released Führer Instruction No. 40, which required the creation of an "Atlantic Wall surface". He bought naval as well as submarine bases to be heavily protected. Strongholds continued to be concentrated around ports till late in 1943, when defenses were increased in other areas. Nazi propaganda claimed that the wall flexed from the cape of Norway down to the Spanish boundary. Organisation Todt, which had developed the Siegfried Line during the prewar years along the Franco-German boundary, was the chief design group responsible for the design as well as renovation of the wall's significant gun locations and strongholds. The Vichy regimen enforced a required labour air conditioner, preparing some 600,000 French workers to create these irreversible fortifications along the Dutch, Belgian, and French coastlines encountering the English Stations.

On the east coast of Taiwan, the shoreline at Xinshe in Hualien has receded by over 100 meters in the last 20 years. But the old idea of overcoming the elements with concrete wave breakers and sea walls has only destroyed many stretches of the natural coastline, and made things worse. In our continuing series of features, on shoring up Taiwan's shoreline, we go to rapidly disappearing Xinshe, to find out more. Green "beach" drops into sea A field beside the Pacific Ocean forms a green beach. But scenes like this, could soon be a thing of the past. Xinshe resident, Zhang Qiulin "This is all subsiding, it's sinking all the time. Before, the seawater didn't flood up to here. It only came up to there. Now waves crash over all the time. If a typhoon comes, they come up to here." Pointing 100-200m out to sea, Zhang Qiulin, who has lived in Xinshe on Taiwan's east coast for 60 years, says all this used to be sandy beach. Xinshe resident, Zhang Qiulin "It collapses all the time. When a typhoon comes, or when it rains heavily, the fields collapse. But what can you do?" Vanishing traditional Kavalan land Hundreds of tons of soil has disappeared into the sea without trace. According to land administration data, the coastline which is the traditionally home of Taiwan's Kavalan indigenous peoples, has receded by over 100m in the last 20 years. WRA 9th River Bureau director, Chen Zhonglong?? "Because the land that residents live on is not worth that much, so along this stretch, even though it's collapsing very seriously, we only concentrate on some key places: tribal villages and communities, where people live and have property, to make sea defenses. We try to keep the shore in a natural state, and try not to increase man-made structures." Green line beats grey line The threatened Xinshe community is by no means an exception. All along Taiwan's east coast, the thin grey lines of seawalls, gabions and wave breakers offer little resistance to the relentless pummeling of the waves. Academia Sinica Biodiversity Center researcher, Zheng Mingxiu "In fact these concrete coverings have never worked. The best shoreline is the original beach, and the plants on the beach are even more important." Holistic solution to coastal erosion Yet along the dramatic east coast of Taiwan, beaches and greenery are a rare sight. Because the coast does not get much sunlight, it is not easy to replant areas that have been stripped bare. Even coconut trees have lost their footing. NTNU Dept. of Geography, Pro. Lin Xuemei "The coast is not a single line, and not an isolated unit, or a small area. It is a zone - a costal zone. So the state of the beach today is affected by moving sand, which affects the sand dunes. Any changes to the sand dunes affect the wind breaking trees. So clearly, the influence of the coast is not - like everyone thinks - limited to that place. It is a very serious and very large area." "Man overcomes nature?" This stone monument to Taiwan's east coast highway says: "man overcomes nature". Looking at the battered road today, the monument seems like a memorial to time gone by, when people thought they could hold back the sea with man-made structures and concrete wave barriers.

INTRODUCTION Nimitz has been symbol of United State’s military might, and has been used to project power far from its coastlines. Ford class super-carriers are being built to replace some of the United States Navy's existing Nimitz-class carriers from 2017. The first ship of this class is Gerald R. Ford is commission ‎on 22 July this year. It has many key improvements over Nimitz class like Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System and much more onboard power. Russia’s 3M22 Zircon hypersonic cruise missile is expected to enter into production in 2018. The new weapon is capable of speeds of more than Mach 6 is currently in final stage of testing. The missile is specifically designed to take out high value targets like aircraft carriers and destroyers. In this video, Defense Updates checks out if USS GERALD R FORD IS CAPABLE OF DEFENDING ITSELF AGAINST ZIRCON MISSILE. Lets get started. Zircon missile Zircon missile weights 5 tons. It is equipped with a scramjet engine type, which compresses air before it enters the combustion chamber. The scramjet is an innovation on the ramjet, in which the combustion chamber is specially designed to operate with supersonic airflow. Ramjet engine powers the Indo Russian Brahmos supersonic cruise missile that can travel at speeds of 2.8 to 3 Mach. Scramjet is simply an acronym for 'supersonic combustion' ramjet. Scramjet powered Zircon has a speed of Mach 6.2 (6,500 km/h) at a cruising altitude of 30 km. The kinetic energy alone will rip a ship apart like a tin can. The range is around 400km (250 miles), though some sources say it could be up to 1000 km (620 miles). FORD CLASS Ford class carriers like Nimitz class have a layered anti missile defense system. 1. The RIM-162 Evolved SeaSparrow Missile (ESSM) is a development of the RIM-7 Sea Sparrow missile used to protect ships from attacking missiles and aircraft. 2. The RIM-116 Rolling Airframe Missile is a small, lightweight, infrared homing surface-to-air missile It is used primarily as a point-defense weapon against ant ship cruise missiles. 3. The Phalanx CIWS is a close-in weapon system for defense against anti-ship missiles. CONFRONTATION As per most analysts, a swarm attack with of 5 to 6 highly maneuvering supersonic Brahmos missile is expected to saturate the defenses and 1-2 is likely to score a hit. In case of Zircon, the chances of penetrating the defenses are much higher owing to the massive speed. Even if the missile is broken up or detonated by close-in weapons, the debris will have so much kinetic energy that the ship may still be badly damaged. There has not been any specific comment from American military about Zircon missile but sources in Britain have ringed the alarm bell. In March this year, one senior British Naval source said: “Hypersonic missiles are virtually unstoppable”. The Royal Navy’s Sea Ceptor missile defense installed on the latest Queen Elizabeth class carrier like the US counterpart is designed to shoot down missiles travelling at supersonic speeds not hypersonic speed. FUTURE SCENARIO As discussed, the current defense system will be found wanting against Zircon. But US military has already stepped up the game. The LaWS, an acronym for Laser Weapons System is currently in testing phase and it is expected that in future its variants will be installed in US navy ships. Laser weapons begin with an advantage no other weapon ever invented comes even close to matching. It moves, by definition, at the speed of light. For comparison, that is more than 50,000 times the speed of an incoming missile like Zircon. LASER weapons will be the apt answer for defending against Zircon missile. CONCLUSION In current state, the Zircon missile is a mighty adversary to US Navy carrier groups and will potentially make the US carriers stay out of its range. In future, laser weapons will be able to level the playing field. Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) has recently published its report on military spending of 2016. US still dominate the space and on a grand scale, the report showed. Total US military expenditure of $611 billion is over one-third of world military expenditure. This is nearly 3 times the level of China’s spending, which is ranked second, and 9 times the spending of Russia which is ranked 4th. It is clear that Russia cannot match the US, platform to platform in military hardware, for example it cannot build so many aircraft carriers to equal the US carrier fleet. Hence, it is focusing on developing asymmetric warfare capabilities and Zircon is designed keeping that in mind. As of today, Zircon missile costing few million dollars is technically capable of taking out a newly build 13 billion dollar carrier.

TU Delft TV - BeachRock The idea behind BeachRock is that certain enhanced natural attributes are being used to defend vulnerable coastlines against the growing threat of climate change. The continuous movement of water and wind erodes coastlines around the world threatening people living close to the sea. To defend these coastlines different methods can be used. One of these methods is the 'Sand Motor', a manmade stretch of beach with millions of cubic meters sand. The natural movement of waves helps eroding the Sand Motor and deposits sand further north on the Dutch coast where it is needed to prevent further coastal decline. A different defence approach is being researched at the Delft University of Technology. Below the surface a natural process helps gluing sand grains together. This process is started by a certain type of bacteria. Leon van Paassen and Dianne den Hamer are looking in to this phenomenon. Their experiment concentrates on the creation of sandstone by using this type of bacteria. Understanding this process can help creating a mechanism to further strengthen dunes and beaches thereby creating a natural hardened cover preventing further erosion.
