PART I | A RESEARCH AND DESIGN PROJECT ABOUT FLOOD RISK POLICY SINCE 1986 The period between the Dutch flood disaster of 1953 and the year 2016 can be divided into two eras, separated by the year 1986, when the famous Eastern Scheldt barrier was completed. The perspective of water professionals on flood risk policymaking during the three decades...

Decisions on measures to improve a flood risk system are in part supported by general ideas about how the system works and should work. After the completion of the Dutch Delta Works around 1990, such new ideas regarding flood risk emerged. Some of these may be appealing at first, but appear debatable after a closer look. In this paper, fourteen...

The research project ‘SimDelta’ builds on novel internet technology to support the development of the Rhine-Meuse delta water infrastructure. It has three goals: education, organisation of research and design studies, and stakeholder polling. A current question is how the SimDelta technology could be made transferable to systems outside Europe,...

Flood damage estimation is essential to flood risk analysis. Flood hazards, values of elements at risk and vulnerability of elements determine flood damage. However, these determinants entail uncertainties. In this study, water depth, values of elements at risk and damage function are selected as three key parameters. The local sensitivity...

The Rhine River Delta is crucial to the Dutch economy. The Maeslant barrier was built in 1997 to protect the Rhine estuary, with the city and port of Rotterdam, from storm surges. This research takes a simple approach to quantify the influence of the Maeslant storm surge barrier on design water levels behind the barrier. The dikes in the area...

The Dutch Delta Program is currently developing new government policies for flood protection and fresh water supply. Decision support instruments have to address the program’s technical and political complexity. The water system functions are highly interwoven and would benefit from an integrated approach on a national level, with decisions...

Op basis van twee eerdere onderzoeksresultaten wordt nader onderzoek gedaan naar effecten van klimaatverandering op de maatgevende hoogwaterstanden. Om tot een betere afstemming te komen zijn vijf nadere onderzoeksvragen gesteld door Delta-deelprogramma Rijnmond-Drechtsteden (DP-RD). Specifiek gaat het om de faalkans van de Maeslantkering.

De gevolgen van de tsunami in Japan hebben zich uitgestrekt tot ver buiten het getroffen gebied en troffen kerncentrales en de nationale energievoorziening en economie. Ook bij een watersnood en andere grote rampen in Nederland zijn zulke keteneffecten te verwachten, bij voorbeeld in de Rotterdamse haven en bij chemische installaties in binnen-...

It is possible to reduce flood risk in estuaries without having to drastically modify the river banks by levees or to block shipping routes and ecological flows by dams. ‘Storm surge barriers’ close off a river mouth at times of high sea water levels, but keep the river open during calmer times. ‘Moveable river flood barriers’ direct a river...

In the spring of 2008, Delft University of Technology wrote a report for the Second Delta Committee, a body set up to advise the Dutch government and parliament on the Netherlands’ long-term flood risk policy. The Delft report included a colourful drawing of a solution for Rotterdam and the Drecht Cities, and the Delta Committee used this image...

Naar aanleiding van ons onderzoek geven we de volgende aanbevelingen aan de Deltacommissie: 1. De financi effecten van het aanpassen van waterkeringen zijn bepaald bij specifiek klimaatscenario. We bevelen aan om deze effecten ook kwantitatief in beeld te brengen voor andere scenarios. 2. Voor maatschappelijke acceptatie van het versterken van...

Deltas throughout the world are vulnerable to natural hazards. New Orleans provides a recent and obvious example. We analyzed the situation in New Orleans and the Mississippi Delta after hurricane Katrina has passed, from a vulnerability perspective. Vulnerability can be subdivided into four components: threshold capacity, coping capacity,...
