In levee system reliability, the length effect is the term given to the phenomenon that the longer the levee, the higher the probability that it will have a weak spot and fail. Quantitatively, it is the ratio of the segment failure probability to the cross-sectional failure probability. The literature is lacking in methods to calculate the...

The aim of this paper is to explain the need to organize the development of standard protocols for communication about major public risks. Tragic events, such as inadequate earthquake preparedness or great unnecessary losses of life due to public misunderstandings underline the importance of such protocols to protect the public and support...

The present paper takes up the issue of appropriate choice of metric for life safety and health related risks in a regulatory context addressing effects of temporal and spatial scales for their consistent quantification and comparison across societal sectors, industries and application areas. Starting point is taken in a short outline of what is...

Dikes and levees play a crucial role in flood protection. The main causes of levee failures are of geotechnical nature; geotechnical failure modes are also the main contributors to the probability of failure of flood defences due to the typically large uncertainties in ground conditions. Hence, information on ground conditions and soil...

According to ISO 2394, structures shall be designed, constructed and maintained in such a way that they are suited for their use during the design working life in an economic way. To fulfil this requirement one needs insight into the risk and reliability under expected and non-expected actions. A key role in this respect is played by the...

Risk assessment is a requirement for robustness design of high consequence class structures, yet very little guidance is offered in practice for performing this type of assessment. This paper demonstrates the application of the probabilistic risk assessment framework arising from COST Action TU0601 to multi-storey buildings subject to extr eme...

De uitkomsten van de berekeningen met de additionele stochasten voor ongeveer 50 waterkeringen in Nederland laten zien dat de waterstanden en golfcondities hoger/zwaarder uitpakken dan het referentieniveau (huidige methode). Dit is niet verrassend. Toevoegen van extra onzekere factoren leidt bijna altijd tot hogere verwachtingswaarden, omdat de...

Evaluating and upgrading existing structures becomes more and more important. For a large part of the existing infrastructure and buildings the design life has been reached or will be reached in the near future. These structures need to be reassessed in order to find out whether the safety requirements are met. Not only for new structures but...

A risk-based safety approach is indispensable to support decision-making on flood protection strategies and measures. Hitherto the effects of river system behaviour on flood risk have usually been neglected. River system behaviour refers to the fact that the flood risk (or safety) of a particular area may depend on the safety of other adjoining...

Het rapport beschrijft de filosofische uitgangspunten voor de beoordeling van bestaande bouw, alsmede de verschillen en overeenkomsten met nieuwbouw. Aangegeven is dat naast het aspect veiligheid van mensenlevens ook de economische afweging een rol moet spelen bij de beoordeling van bestaande constructies. De filosofische uitgangspunten zijn ten...

Het hoofddoel van het project is om te onderzoeken hoe dijken die volgens de huidige leidraden en richtlijnen zijn ontworpen zich verhouden tot het model PC-Ring. Deze verhouding wordt zichtbaar gemaakt door de faalkansen te vergelijken met de ontwerpnorm. De faalkansen worden met PC-Ring berekend. Tevens wordt de verhouding zichtbaar tussen de...

Resistance, stiffness and deformation capacity are three characteristics describing the behaviour of (statically loaded) structures. The stiffness relates mostly to the serviceability of the structure. The resistance and deformation capacity relate to the safety of the structure. Nowadays, the safety of structures is checked explicitly with help...
