In this paper we discuss PyBanshee, which is a Python-based open-source implementation of the MATLAB toolbox BANSHEE. PyBanshee constitutes the first fully open-source package to quantify, visualize and validate Non-Parametric Bayesian Networks (NPBNs). The architecture of PyBanshee is heavily based on its MATLAB predecessor. It presents the...

Non-parametric Bayesian networks (NPBNs) are graphical tools for statistical inference widely used for reliability analysis and risk assessment and present several advantages, such as the embedded uncertainty quantification and limited computational time for the inference process. However, their implementation in hydrological studies is still...

A submerged floating tunnel (SFT) is a structure that has been proposed as an innovative solution for waterway crossings around the world. However, to this day, no SFT has been constructed yet. One of the main reasons is that there is an insufficient insight into the structural reliability of the SFT. Here, a method to assess the expected...

Weigh-in-motion (WIM) systems help to collect data such as vehicular loads, individual axle loads, vehicle type, and number of axles. This is relevant in engineering because traffic load performs an essential function in the design of new bridges and in the reliability assessment of existing ones, in traffic analysis and other areas of...

Technical, economic, regulatory, environmental, and social and political interests make the process of selecting an appropriate wastewater treatment technology complex. Although this problem has already been addressed from the dimensioning approach, our proposal in this research, a model of decision making for conventional secondary treatment of...

The Wettelijk Beoordelingsinstrumentarium (WBI) is the legal set of instruments for flood risk analysis in the Netherlands. Often, engineers have the impression that some failure probabilities of flood defenses resulting from these instruments are overestimated. In an effort to better estimate the failure probabilities of dikes along the...

A submerged floating tunnel (SFT) is a novel structure that allows crossing waterways where immersed tunnels or bridges are not viable. However, no SFT has been built yet mainly, due to lack of experience. In consequence, there are several uncertainties regarding its design and construction. An effect that should be further investigated is the...

Traffic counts collect information that is valuable, for example, in bridge and road design or maintenance processes. The average daily traffic volume is often the most collected measure of vehicular traffic, which is used in the design or assessment of major highways. Permanent control stations, situated in key locations of the highway network,...

The generation of synthetic time series is important in contemporary water sciences for their wide applicability and ability to model environmental uncertainty. Hydroclimatic variables often exhibit highly skewed distributions, intermittency (that is, alternating dry and wet intervals), and spatial and temporal dependencies that pose a...

During the last two decades, increasing vessel size in major German estuaries has led to the significant change of the local loading regime i.e. increased importance of ship-induced waves and currents. As a consequence, the intensity of ship-induced loads has increased considerably, resulting in damage to rock structures such as revetments,...

The increasing risk of flooding requires obtaining generalized knowledge for the implementation of distinct and innovative intervention strategies, such as nature-based solutions. Inclusion of ecosystems in flood risk management has proven to be an adaptive strategy that achieves multiple benefits. However, obtaining generalizable...

Natural hazards affect many types of tangible assets, the most valuable of which are often residential assets, comprising buildings and household contents. Yet, information necessary to derive exposure in terms of monetary value at the level of individual houses is often not available. This includes building type, size, quality, or age. In...

Residential assets, comprising buildings and household contents, are a major source of direct flood losses. Existing damage models are mostly deterministic and limited to particular countries or flood types. Here, we compile building-level losses from Germany, Italy and the Netherlands covering a wide range of fluvial and pluvial flood events...

The interaction between storm surges and inland run-off has been gaining increasing attention recently, as they have the potential to result in compound floods. In Europe, several flood events of this type have been recorded in the past century in Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy and UK. First projections of compound flood hazard under climate...

This is an update to PII: S2352711018300608 and S2352711019302419 In this paper, we present three main improvements of ANDURIL and its python version ANDURYL. First the MATLAB version ANDURIL is brought to the Python version standard by implementing (i) user defined quantiles and (ii) the possibility to deal with missing values. Second, the...

Bayesian Networks (BNs) are probabilistic, graphical models for representing complex dependency structures. They have many applications in science and engineering. Their particularly powerful variant – Non-Parametric BNs – are for the first time implemented as an open-access scriptable code, in the form of a MATLAB toolbox “BANSHEE”.<sup>1<...

The concept of intrinsic vulnerability of a traffic network is defined for the first time in this paper. Intrinsic vulnerability is the susceptibility to incidents characterised by a probability of occurrence in space and time of difficult estimation, which can result in considerable reduction or loss of the system functionality. Given the...

This is an update to PII: S2352711018300608. In this paper, we discuss ANDURYL, which is a Python-based open source successor of the MATLAB toolbox ANDURIL. The output of ANDURYL is in good agreement with the results obtained from ANDURIL and EXCALIBUR. Additional features available in ANDURYL, and not available in its predecessors, are discussed.

Cliff coasts are dynamic environments that can retreat very quickly. However, the<br/>short-term changes and factors contributing to cliff coast erosion have not received as much attention as dune coasts. In this study, three soft-cliff systems in the southern Baltic Sea were monitored with the use of terrestrial laser scanner technology over a...

In the bridge industry, current traffic trends have increased the likelihood of having the simultaneous presence of both extreme live loads and earthquake events. To date, their concurrent interaction has scarcely been systematically studied. Prevailing studies have investigated the isolated existence of either live loads or seismic actions. In...
