A changing climate means that the combination of storm surge and river flood waves is becoming increasingly likely. The turbinepumping station of the Delta21 concept, is designed just for that. The energy storage lake and the pumps capable of up to 10,000 m3/s mean that even the highest river discharges can be sluiced to the North Sea in the...

The floods of 1953, 1993, 1995, 2021 and the almost flood in Rivierenland show that floods have major consequences. Before a flood people can evacuate preventively or vertical and during a flood people can flee, being rescued or permanently stay behind. This research focuses on fleeing and being rescued to a safe region. The research question is...

The BAM Tidal Bridge is a proposed bifunctional concept of a bridge connection between two Indonesian islands, and the world’s largest tidal power plant. The wave forcing on the floating structure leads to an undesired dynamic response and a decreased operating reliability. The thesis objective is about designing an additional structure or a...

Over the recent years, flood risks and losses have been increasing for coastal cities due to climate change, subsidence, population and economic growth. Hong Kong and Macau are two cities located in the Pearl River Delta that experience a significant flood risk due to storm surges. The increased losses and risks has sparked interest around the...

Ships in rivers create waves and these can have a negative impact on fish habitats along the river banks. A modelling study is carried out to investigate how these ship-induced waves can be damped in groyne fields by making structural modifications to the groynes. For this purpose, different types of openings (notches) are applied to the groynes...

According to the European Environment Agency (2016, pp. 137–140) annual mean river flow and the frequency of fluvial floods will have increased by 20% before the year 2100, in North-western Europe. It had been postulated in media in reports (De Ingenieur, 2014; „MIRT-verkenning Grevelingen”, 2012; Slootjes et al., 2010; Slootjes, 2013; Lammers,...

The number of fatalities due to a potential flood event is traditionally determined utilizing 'mortality functions’. Data of recent large-scale flooding in the Netherlands are not available since the Netherlands was successful in flood prevention. Therefore, only data from the last coastal flood event in 1953 with 1795 direct fatalities are...

Small Island Developing States, including many low-lying atoll islands, are among the most vulnerable countries to natural hazards and climate change disproportionately amplifies this vulnerability. Hence, there is a strong need for disaster risk reduction and risk management. Further development and implementation of methodologies for flood...

The existing hydrodynamic models consider full physics approaches to calculate storm surge at coastal regions. However, due to the complexity of the equations that model these processes, the computational time and power required to run them can be large, compared to models that consider simplified equations. By contrast, simplified hydraulic...

Whenever a region - especially the coastal area - is affected by flood risk, it is essential for residential and life protection to gain knowledge about the mechanisms leading to the collapse of houses. There are empirical mortality functions to predict the mortality of population in the Netherlands directly affected by flooding, but due to...

In contrast with other Dutch rivers parts, human measures in the upstream part of the River Meuse did not mainly focus on discharging surplus water, but on retaining water in dry periods. Almost 100 years ago seven weirs were constructed in the River Meuse to enable transport of coals. The structures reach, due to concrete degradation, the end...

The goal of this research is to assess technical and economic feasibility of hydropower at the weir-complex of Driel. A local initiative opting to improve the environment gained interest in the idea and asked Arcadis NL for help. The weir complex at Driel lays in a key position in the Dutch river Delta and regulates the flow to the IJssel and...

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are increasingly under threat of coastal flooding, which challenges the safety of their societies and vulnerable economies. The emergency of this issue, exacerbated by climate change, has alarmed international organisations and national governments that have been demanding for robust risk assessments to...

Recent major tsunami events generated by earthquakes inundated coastal cities and caused extreme destruction and loss of human lives. The collapse of coastal bridges due to tsunami wave impact represents a huge obstacle for rescue works. The need to understand tsunami effects and develop tsunami-resilient bridges became apparent in the aftermath...

The objective of this master thesis is to gain knowledge regarding the dynamic behaviour of The Palmerah Tidal Bridge to hydraulic loads. The Palmerah Tidal Bridge, an enterprise of the construction company BAM, will become future's largest tidal power plant and a floating bridge between two islands in the Flores region, Indonesia. A combination...

The 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake had a devastating impact on the town of Otsuchi in Iwate Prefecture, resulting in 1,234 immediate deaths and 59.6% of residential houses being fully damaged amongst other severe consequences. The post-disaster Reconstruction Plan (2011-2018) of this town focused on rebuilding the previously existing town with...

Coastal facilities such as desalination plant or a nuclear power plant need a continuous discharge of salty water to carry out their functions. Hereby an intake structure, such as a velocity cap, can be used to take in water from the sea. These intakes are open seafloor founded constructions mounted at a water depth ranging between 10 and 20...

Despite the many positive effects of dams, they can also have several negative impacts on natural systems. One of these impacts is the decrease in sediment inflow towards the coast which can lead to coastal erosion. <br/>A technique that can be applied to improve the situation downstream is modifying the discharge through the dam. Unfortunately,...

The United States of America have a safety standard for flood protection of 1/100 year. However the flood protections in the Washington D.C. do not comply with this requirement. During this study the levees in Washington D.C. area were analysed and it was found, that in order to comply with the 1/100 safety standard the levees in the...

During the 2011 Great East Japan Tsunami, the world’s deepest breakwaters in Kamaishi and Ofunato, which had been designed to reduce tsunami damage, partially failed after over-topping. The failure was due to a combination of sliding, over-topping induced foundation scour and foundation bearing capacity failure. Hindcasting this failure required...
