Where water flows, prosperity follows.<br/><br/>Many prosperous areas around the world are situated near large bodies of water such as oceans, seas, and rivers. These bodies of water play a vital role in enhancing the prosperity of societies through various means. They provide convenient access to transportation, food, recreation, and many other...

Between July 12 and 15, 2021, extreme rainfall in Luxembourg, Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands caused severe flooding. The total damage in the Netherlands is estimated to be between € 350 and € 600 million, with Valkenburg aan de Geul suffering the most damage. The economic and tourist heart of this city is located in the lowest part of the...

The combination of climate change and increased urbanization has resulted in cities with no historic flooding experience suddenly vulnerable to extreme flood events. Climate change increases the frequency and intensity of rainfalls, whereas urbanization decreases the total porous surface area, resulting in pluvial (rainwater) flooding. One such...

The Meuse is a river in West-Europe which rises at the Langres Plateau and flows from France through Belgium and the Netherlands. The river has always been an important shipping route, even though its navigability has been problematic in the Netherlands. To solve this problem seven weirs were constructed in the Dutch part of the Meuse. They are...

Adequate flood protection is important to many countries, but especially so to the Netherlands. With a large share of its population centers located below sea level, in so-called polders, the need for flood protection systems quickly becomes apparent. This need is even more pressing with the rise of sea levels and the increase in river discharge...

The objective of this research is to design and evaluate a new type of rolling gate for the Western lock (Westsluis) in Terneuzen, for which all sensitive and heavily loaded mechanical parts are both easily accessible and located above water. Having all mechanical parts above water not only makes them easier to inspect and maintain, but it also...

Because of the fortunate absence of great flood events in The Netherlands during the second half of the twentieth century, no physical data was added to the structural understanding of flood fragility on walls. Considering that during the same period the cavity wall became standard in the construction of houses, a certain inconsistency can be...

Coastal flood risk is expected to increase over the 21st century as a result of climate change and economic growth, which makes low-lying regions especially vulnerable. Global screening techniques are needed for a more widespread use of NBS in these flood prone coastal regions. This research expands on the current assessments done by developing...

The historic inner-cities in The Netherlands are largely known for their iconic channels and their accompanying quay walls, of which a significant number were constructed over 100 years ago. Due to the limited available space in the sub-surface of the urban environment, a high number of utility lines (i.e. potable water pipes and sewer systems)...

Seaports across the globe form a critical lifeline for 90% of the international trade of goods. To ensure the safe and efficient handling of these goods and protect the hinterland from floods, seaports often construct and maintain a large array of hydraulic structures. Revetments and quay walls are a critical part of this infrastructure....

By signing the Paris Climate Agreement, The Netherlands has committed itself to curtail its CO2- emissions in order to keep global warming well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels. Pivotal to achieve these targets is the phase-out of CO2-intensive electricity generation technologies and investments in renewables. Current investments aiming to...

The Segment barrier is a conceptual design for a storm surge barrier consisting of individual concrete segments which can be combined to form a barrier. The structure is designed with the ability to expand in size to deal with the uncertainties of global mean sea level rise by stacking the individual segments into various configurations. At its...

There is a lot of uncertainty in climate change developments, and therefore in its consequences. For the flood defence system of the Netherlands, an important consequence of climate change is the sea level rise. Marine locks are large, rigid, and intricate structures, with a required lifespan of at least 100 years, for which often design...

In the Meuse seven weirs are located in the Dutch reaches, controlling the water level to enable inland navigation through the river. The weirs are being scheduled for replacement, where weir Grave is the first one in 2028. They are reaching their end-of-life time. One of the main issues that became of more importance in the recent years is ship...

The World Heritage Site Kinderdijk consists of a landscape of preserved 18th-century windmills and is a popular touristic location. The number of visitors is continuously growing for the World Heritage Site at Kinderdijk. Visitors arriving via the water network have to cross a busy road to reach the heritage site. This is an unsafe and...

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...

Immersed tunnels, located in waterways, could be a limiting factor in the dredging in waterways. This dredging is required since cargo vessels draught increased the past decades. In this thesis a new method is defined for temporarily, effectively, re-floating immersed tunnels. With this method extra risks arise, for these risks’ measures are...

When designing a construction pit adjacent to a navigation channel, the event of a ship colliding with the structure is something to take into account in the design of the pit. However, several aspects regarding ship collisions, i.e. the probability of occurrence of a collision, the magnitude of the collision force and the influence on the...

Dikes constructed of a sand core, clay cover and natural vegetation as (landside) slope protection are common flood defence structures in the Netherlands. The design parameters, such as the crest height of dikes, are determined through risk assessment to reduce the remaining probability of a failure mechanism, such as overflow. Little is known...

Galveston Bay is an area in the Upper Texas Coast (USA) historically suffering from the impact of several large magnitude hurricanes. In 2008 hurricane Ike, one of the most devastating natural disasters in Unites States recent past, raised awareness of the flood vulnerability problem of the area and triggered the beginning of different proposals...
