van Herwijnen, Maurits (author)
Making decisions when future conditions are uncertain is a challenging endeavor. This thesis develops a framework to analyse flood risk and create Dynamic Adaptive Policy Pathways, which can provide insights in the behaviour of flood risk protection measures in many future scenarios. The pathways are used to identify robust measures, dead ends...

In common practice, quay walls are engineered to fulfil their services for a minimum lifetime. However, in many cases, quay walls are designed stronger than minimally required, which means that the quay wall could be able to serve its purpose over a longer period or endure higher loads. In general, the optimization of quay wall designs or the...

The report tackles Galveston's flooding challenges, which are currently in development with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) ring barrier. However, the current design, predominantly addressing coastal flooding, falls short in dealing with pluvial flooding, relying heavily on pumps. This top-down approach neglects environmental and...

Sea level rise and land subsidence increasingly put more pressure on Dutch flood protections. Additional to regular dike reinforcements, new, more nature-based, solutions are considered, such as a double dike system (DDS). Such system, consisting of two parallel dikes in combination with an interdike area in the form of a salt marsh, offers the...

Many Dutch infrastructure assets were constructed in the first half of the 20th century and by considering an average design life time of roughly 100 years, a lot of these structures will reach the end of their designed life in the upcoming decades. This results in a large replacement and renovation challenge in the nearby future. Assessing the...

The world is heating up quickly. Since 1901, the temperature in the Netherlands has risen about twice as fast as the global average and the effects of climate change seem clearly noticeable. With sea levels rising and peak river discharges increasing an enormous pressure is mounting on the current Flood Protection Programme in the Netherlands...

Besides global warming, climate change is expected to result in (among others) an increased number of extreme precipitation events and a rising sea level. In the future, this can be the cause for an increased number of high river discharge events in combination with high water levels on the North Sea, which goes hand in hand with an increased...

This investigation considers the two floating gates of the Maeslant barrier, which is a storm surge barrier in the Rotterdam area. During the end of each closure operation of the Maeslant barrier, the flow at the barrier may be in seaward direction. Three different effects have been observed in the situation with a flow in seaward direction. The...

Sea level variations and storm surges are expected to increase as a result of climate change. 570 cities and some 800 million people are by 2050 estimated to be exposed to these phenomena when emissions do not decrease (UCCRN, 2018). It is, however, deeply uncertain if and to what extent emissions will decrease. Additionally, the effects of...

Low-lying, densely-populated coastal areas across the world are under threat of hurricane-induced floods. This is the case in, among others, the Galveston Bay Area. In response to this threat the USACE (United States Corps of Engineers) recommended a plan to reduce the risk of flooding, through a range of measures to form a resilient coast of...

In this thesis I use a novel approach to estimate the economic impact of the 2021 Limburg flood using high-frequency transaction data from ABN AMRO bank. High- frequency bank transaction data have previously been proven valuable in accessing the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic (Neuteboom et al., 2021). To the best of my knowledge, this...

Sea level rise caused by climate change directly affects and threatens low-lying countries. In August of 2021, the report of the IPCC was published, and the findings were disturbing. The sea could rise by a few meters in the coming centuries, causing floods in large parts of West-Europe. Groeskamp and Kjellson proposed a solution to adapt to the...

The coastal zone is becoming more vulnerable due to growing concentrations of human population, settlements, and socio-economic activities. The Rhine-Meuse Delta is low-lying land, which makes it vulnerable to flooding. The Maeslant barrier is a storm surge barrier which should prevent flooding in the low-lying land behind the barrier. Various...

Flooding is one of the most damaging natural disasters worldwide, and presents a signi_cant risk for a large amount of the global population. For the development of ood disaster management strategies, policy makers make use of ood hazard maps to inform investment strategies to reduce risk. In many current ood hazard mapping methods, the role of...

Nota, Hugo (author)
The effects of climate change are felt all around the world. An increased sea level goes hand in hand with an increased risk of flooding. To combat this, the coastlines must be reinforced to withstand future sea levels. However, repeatedly reinforcing coastlines to keep up with the sea level rise (SLR) could prove extremely costly. An...

The geographical features in the Southern part of Limburg forces precipitation from upstream located areas to flow through a bottleneck, which is exactly located at the city centre of Valkenburg. This makes increasing the safety level more complicated than in other areas. The safety level of Valkenburg has a lower standard in comparison to the...

For centuries humanity has been engineering the second largest river system in the Netherlands, the river Meuse system. This resulted in improvements for the shipping and water safety functions, but simultaneously has had a negative impact on other functions of the river Meuse system. Nature and water quality, for example, degraded due to the...

The Hollandsche IJssel storm surge barrier is expected to last another 40 years, but replacement or renovation may be needed sooner than anticipated due to factors such as climate change and societal developments. Yet, there is relatively little known about what factors and how these factors influence the remaining life, and methods that can be...

Climate change is increasingly becoming more impactful on our society. Recent events such as the extreme rainfall in the summer of 2021 in Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands and hurricane Ida in Mississippi (USA), caused severe floodings and damages in these areas. Climate change, in turn, leads to an increase in sea level rise, making flood...
