Last weekend an article in the Dutch Financieel Dagblad (newspaper) was published about how science can be used to gain Olympic sailing medals. Svašek Hydraulics will be for the fourth time supplier of current forecasts to the Dutch Olympic sailing team. The article in available in Dutch online or by pdf download.
Svašek Hydraulics has become a member of the Seaweed platform. A community of different companies and institutes working together on innovations, knowledge and market developments for seaweed farming at sea. This community is part of the activities of the so called North Sea Farm.
Svašek Hydraulics has moved to Kratonkade 23, 3024 ES, Rotterdam. Again an inspiring location at the Nieuwe Maas river bank.
As of September 2019, Lennard Spaans joins Svašek Hydraulics. Lennard recently graduated at Delft University of Technology (coastal engineering) and his MSc-Thesis focused on the morphodynamics of intertidal sandbars and its simulation in XBeach.
Asplan Viak (Lead contractor, Norway), HKV (Netherlands) and Svašek (Netherlands) together have been selected for the ‘Fjord Crossings’ project for two framework agreements for flow and wave studies. In order to realize the ambition to complete the E39 Coastal Highway Route as an improved and continuous route without ferries, new bridge technology needs to be […]
This September it will be 50 years ago that Svašek Hydraulics was founded by Honzo Svašek (1926-1994). Born in Czechoslovakia, Honzo became a scientist at Rijkswaterstaat in The Netherlands after his MSc graduation at Delft University of Technology in 1955. The construction of the first Rotterdam Port Expansion (Maasvlakte I) played an important role in […]
This autumn Svašek Hydraulics will move to Kratonkade 23 in Rotterdam. This location is only 400 meters from our current office. Just like now, we will have a beautiful view of the river Maas from our new office.
As of June 2018, Tom Pak joins Svašek Hydraulics. Tom graduated in 2019 at Delft University of Technology (river and coastal engineering). His MSc-Thesis was focused on the interaction between aeolian and marine sediment transport at the Hondsbossche Dunes. We are happy to have him in our team. Welcome aboard Tom!
Full 2D wave spectrum modelling is available in HARES. All local wave directions and frequencies are taken into account by means of 2D wave spectra. Incoming wave energy can be distinguished from reflected wave energy. HARES is a two-dimensional numerical model for the determination of short wave propagation in near-shore domains, e.g. harbour basins. The […]
On 22 May 2019 the Joint Industry Project WINDLASS has started in Wageningen. The project runs for 3 years and will focus on the improvement of the existing knowledge on wind loads on (large) vessels by doing wind measurements in ports and developing software to calculate the wind loads. The number of participants is about […]
