This report details the development of a Flood Early Warning System (FEWS) for the Tana Basin in Kenya, executed by a multidisciplinary team from the Delft University of Technology. Recognizing the Tana Basin’s vulnerability to flood risks, exacerbated by climatic variability, limited funds, and limited available data, the project proposes a...

Indonesia faces the challenge of attaining renewable energy goals and reducing carbon emissions by 29% by 2030. Despite a renewable energy goal of 23% of the national energy mix by 2025, only 14% of electricity production is projected to be generated from renewable sources by 2023. Accelerated deployment of renewable energy solutions is required...

The Netherlands is a country that is being threatened by water, both from the rivers and from the sea. The Dutch have built dikes to keep their lands from inundation. To ensure the strength and stability of these dikes, they are being assessed on the basis of several failure mechanisms. One of these failure mechanisms is...

This study focuses on optimizing the use of high-performance computing on public cloud infrastructure, along with information theory, for assessing water systems. These assessments are computationally intensive and can benefit from parallel computing and the evaluation of the collected data with information theory. A case study of a water system...

The applicability of the Sellmeijer design rule to Limburg dike sections near Well, Hout-Blerick, Buggenum, and Thorn was investigated in this thesis. This was accomplished by building a finite element numerical model, in COMSOL Multiphysics, to assess the piping in the hydrogeological systems of the research locations. The proposed model is...

The production and consumption of electricity need to be balanced at all times. Due to the ever-growing shift towards renewable energy generation, this poses an increasingly difficult challenge. Currently, supply is regulated to maintain balance. However, there is potential to improve reliability and save costs by shifting the balancing to the...

One-third of the Dutch dike system consists of peat dikes. Drought causes these dikes to crack and fail more easily. Visual dike inspections are therefore inefficient, especially considering the increasing climate changes of the future. Research has shown that a fiber optic sensor cable (FOS), used in distributed temperature sensing (DTS), can...

Climatic conditions in uence peak discharges in rivers and change sea levels; therefore, attention to the safety of dikes is of ever growing importance. Macro instability is one of the dike failure mechanisms that can inundate the hinterland. Soil heterogeneity plays an important role in assessing dike safety, especially for slope stability,...

Second-order Gaussian kernels have been utilized to develop three algorithms that could automatically extract ridge lines for hydrodynamic modelling. Isotropic second-order Gaussian kernels produce inaccurate lines at crossings and junctions. To avoid the malfunctioning of Second-order Gaussian kernels, one default and two alternative algorithms...

Flood simulations can give insight into the consequences of flood scenario's and can help to create hazard- and risk maps to support decision-making in flood risk management and in crisis management. 2D hydrodynamic simulations give accurate descriptions of the propagation of a flood and rely on advanced numerical methods to solve a set of...

Large parts of the Netherlands are vulnerable to flooding. Due to the great impact that a flood would have for the Dutch society, The flood safety standards are very strict, which means that the required failure probability of flood defences is very low. To keep the flood risk within acceptable limits of the hinterland, flood embankments are...

Coastal areas around the world have always been densely populated areas. However, sea-level-rise and an increase in single extreme events due to climate change, threaten the coastal areas and their inhabitants. Governmental organizations, coastal managers and various private parties thrive for better insights into long-term shoreline behavior...

During intense periods of drought, the development of cracks is observed in peat and clay dikes. Asset managers of the dikes increase the inspection frequency in times of drought to be able to monitor these cracks. Significant development of the cracks contributes to the development of different failure mechanisms. In this study, the occurrence...

The Netherlands is a country prone to flooding. Recent assessments led to the insight that protection levels of many flood defences should be increased. Integrating reinforcement measures is a difficult task as many dikes are situated in densely populated areas. Conventional reinforcement measures include berm construction or the implementation...

River floods are becoming increasingly devastating because of climate change (more frequent and extreme rainfall), population growth and the increasing economic importance of river basins. This situation requires maintenance and strengthening of flood-defence systems.<br/><br/>Adding certain types of vegetation at precise locations for their...

Punchiná reservoir is part of the San Carlos Hydroelectric Power Plant, situated in the Guatapé watershed. The Guatapé river is an affluent of the Samaná Norte river, which in turn is an affluent of the Magdalena river. San Carlos Hydroelectric Project uses the waters from the rivers San Carlos and Guatapé and discharges the turbined flow...
