Around the world, an increasing amount of bridge infrastructure is ageing. The resources involved in the reassessment of existing assets often exceed available resources and many bridges lack a minimum structural assessment. Therefore, there is a need for comprehensive and quantitative approaches to assess all the assets in the bridge network to...

Rising sea levels caused by climate change are increasing the risk of overtopping on coastal structures. Moreover, there is a growing societal concern about the visual impact of these structures, which leads to the lowering of their crest freeboards. In previous studies, safety during overtopping events was assessed considering the...

Immersed tunnels are positive buoyant structures during installation and negative buoyant after installation. A tunnel is composed of sequential immersed elements that are coupled to each other in joints. Tunnel elements consist of segments which are compressed to each other by longitudinal post-tensioning. After immersion the tunnel is...

Constructing Bayesian networks (BN) for practical applications presents significant challenges, especially in domains with limited empirical data available. In such situations, field experts are often consulted to estimate the model’s parameters, for instance, rank correlations in Gaussian copula-based Bayesian networks (GCBN). Because there is...

The Netherlands has traditionally focused on managing flood risk. However, the frequent occurrence of droughts in recent years has brought attention to managing both extremes. Transitions between these opposite extremes pose additional challenges to water management, requiring a trade-off between water storage during dry periods and flood...

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...

Finite Element (FE) modeling often requires unavoidable simplifications or assumptions due to a lack of experimental data, modeling complexity, or non-affordable computational cost. One such simplification is modeling corrosion phenomena or material properties, which are usually assumed to be uniform throughout the structure. However, e.g.,...

Aquaculture is gaining importance in the current context of continuous growth population as a source of (local) food resources and its potential of being combined with other uses at sea (e.g.: offshore energy production or tourism). Consequently, within the European Horizon 2020 project UNITED, the combination of mussel and seaweed cultivation...

Before the year 1519, the Valley of Mexico was a closed basin and at the bottom of the valley, an extensive system of shallow lakes was formed. Within this lacustrine system, the capital of the Aztec empire, Tenochtitlan, was built. The Aztecs were known for their impressive constructions and complex hydraulic structures, of which the most...

An accurate estimation of wind and wave variables is key for coastal and offshore applications. Recently, copulas have gained popularity for modelling wind and waves multivariate dependence, since accounting for the hydrodynamic relationships between them is needed to ensure reliable estimations of the required design values. In this study,...

Investigating the reliability of ancient hydraulic structures constructed without modern probabilistic criteria allows an understanding of why and how the structure fails. In this paper, we present an extended method, firstly introduced by Torres-Alves and Morales-Nápoles (2020), to perform the reliability analysis of the Nezahualcoyotl's dike...

Vine copulas have become the standard tool for modelling complex probabilistic dependence. It has been shown that the number of regular vines grows extremely quickly with the number of nodes. Chimera is the first attempt to map the vast space of regular vines. Software for operating with regular vines is available for R, matlab and Python....

This contribution presents an assessment at a regional (island) scale of the beach erosion due to storm events under Climate Change. The approach adopted to assess beach erosion at the island scale consisted of three modules. First, the location, dimensions and other attributes of the Cypriot beaches were recorded on the basis of widely...

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...

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...

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...

Technical, economic, regulatory, environmental, and social and political interests make the process of selecting an appropriate wastewater treatment technology complex.

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...

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...
