Prof. Dr. LEO VAN RIJN is an independent consultant since his retirement in 2011 from Delft Hydraulics/Deltares and the University of Utrecht and has 40 years experience in solving sediment problems all over the world.
WWW.LEOVANRIJN-SEDIMENT.COM (LVRS-Consultancy) is specialized in QUICK SCANS and LOW-BUDGET STUDIES, using simple modelling tools (see and vast experience (see PROJECTS since 2012).
Big modelling studies can be performed as well in cooperation with high-level partners (Waterproof engineering and Wiertsema soil engineering). Basic modelling tools are the DELFT3D-system for flow, sediment transport and morphology in rivers, estuaries and coastal seas and the SWAN-model for wave propagation. A range of measuring instruments is available for field studies.

WWW.LEOVANRIJN-SEDIMENT.COM cooperates with: (soils)  (Hydro);
as the HYSAS-consortium (Hydro, Sediments and Soils)
