The Huangpu River meanders through downtown Shanghai City and links China's third largest Lake with the Yangtze River estuary. Typhoons passing Shanghai from June to October annually are the main trigger for flooding of the Huangpu River. When storm surges due to a tropical cyclone meet the local astronomical tide, the water levels in the river...

Vietnam experienced sustained economic growth over the last decades, making it one of the fastest growing economies of the world. At this moment Vietnam is still fighting its way out of poverty and trying to improve living standards. With a coastline of 3,260 kilometers many activities take place in the densely populated coastal areas. The...

The rise of sea level increases the risk of coastal flooding by increasing the probability of occurrence of flood event at a given height. The essence of coastal planning and management in the future relies on an accurate coastal flood risk assessment with regards to sea level rise. Through the set up of flood risk assessment model in Geographic...

Financial feasibility study of urban development in lowland polders in the Netherlands, where different spatial designs are evaluated for the Westergouwe. In the near future, the competing demand for new housing and water storage in the Randstad have to be met, whilst guaranteeing the safety against rising sea level and extreme weather conditions.

New container ports are mostly constructed on low lying coastal areas or in shallow coastal waters. The quay wall and terminal yard are then raised to a level well above mean sea level to insure safety against inundation. The resulting ‘conventional terminal’ requires large volumes of good quality fill material often dredged from the sea which...

Introduction The popularity of monitoring dikes with sensor techniques is rising. It is claimed that sensor techniques lead to significant cost savings and can predict an upcoming dike collapse. But a technical foundation to use the sensor monitoring information in flood safety assessment is lacking. This research investigates the contribution...

The city of Itajaí is located in the province of Santa Catharina in Brazil. The people of Itajaí have been coping with flood risk for the past decades. During normal conditions the Itajaí-Açu River is a rather calm river that is used for navigation and the harbour area. Recovering from the past two floods in 2008 and 2011 have cost more than...

Klerk, W.J. (author)
In the Netherlands flood risks are often assessed by using a dike ring approach. This approach has, aside from many advantages, also some disadvantages. The main disadvantage is that, when zooming in on a small area, the effect of the system on that small area and vice versa, is or cannot be accounted for properly. Research has shown that for a...

More than five years after Hurricane Ike devastated the Galveston Bay Area, the most critical challenge remains; reducing flood vulnerability. In response to Hurricane Ike’s disastrous impact, several structural flood risk reduction strategies have been proposed. Some advocating local solutions, others advocating system-wide coastal barriers....

Fierinck, E. (author)
The city of Hoboken, New Jersey, suffers from flood risk by sea level rise, storm surge and storm water. Due to its position it is well connected to the metropolitan network, but also cut off from its direct surroundings. This has led to both spatial and social segregation. This project uses the Dutch approach towards flood risk, where water has...

Aim of this graduation project is to improve the resilience of the Broad Channel Community against future storm surge. The design of the Broad Channel Resilience Center strengthens the community by adding social functions, educates and forms consensus for resilient living and serves a relief function after a storm surge.

Oosterlo, P. (author)
In this thesis, a method was developed, with which the infragravity waves and morphological changes of a sandy foreshore are included in the calculation of the probability of dike failure due to wave overtopping. Constructing a natural foreshore in front of the dike can be an attractive and innovative method to decrease the failure probability....

Dokter, J.C. (author)
Large parts of the Netherlands are exposed to the threats of flooding due to the influence of high water coming from the North Sea region, due to high discharge of rivers like the Meuse and Rhine or due to a combination of North Sea water levels and river discharges. In order to cope these threats, strategies are developed in the Delta Program...

The Belgian Meuse is a river with a relatively low flood risk. The floodplains are narrow, and the estimated impact is not large until the flood reaches a magnitude of a once in a 200 years event. Flooding along the Belgian Meuse could however have an effect on the flood safety in the Netherlands, since there the flood defences are dimensioned...

The Hollandsche IJssel is a river between Rotterdam and Gouda and is protected from the main river system in the Netherlands by a storm surge barrier. The Hollandsche IJssel experiences several problems: the storm surge barrier dates from 1958 and has a relatively low closure reliability; three quarters of the dikes have been rejected according...

The climate is changing and the rising temperatures are causing the polar ice to melt, combined with more and intense rain low-lying waterfronts are becoming vulnerable for flooding. Two urban waterfronts have been selected for the study: Frihamnen in Gothenburg and Stadswerven in Dordrecht. The two waterfronts have to be adapted to be able to...

Jongerius, Y.R. (author)
In this research the reliability of dikes are studied that are influenced by the presence of buildings. Along many Dutch dikes (residential) buildings are present. These buildings may influence the reliability of the dike positevely and or negatively. In this study a probabilistic method is developed to determine the influence of a building,...
