The Netherlands which means “lowlands”, constitutes an area of approximately 41,528 km2. Almost half of those areas are below the sea level. Today, more than 2,400 kilometres of dikes shields the sunken-flat land. Regular safety assessment of the dikes are constantly conducted, and the evaluation determines whether planning or dike...

To research if the current practice of mandating individual flood risk assessments supports the goal of an optimal flood risk a case study is performed in this thesis. The flood risk in 2050 is assessed for the liquid bulk storage terminals of the company Vopak located in and near the Botlek area of Rotterdam harbor. The used flood risk...

The Netherlands is a low-lying country which is protected against floods by a flood protection system consisting of dikes, dunes and other hydraulic structures. The quality of the flood defense system should be of a sufficiently high level to guarantee protection against a flood. If a flood defense is unsafe, measurements are required to improve...

The Netherlands recently developed a new risk approach for flood management. The approach changed the safety standards in the Water-Act. The safety standard used to be an exceedance probability of the design water level, and the flood defence was supposed not to fail for all water levels below this level. Since knowledge regarding the actual...

Dutch flood protections are assessed every five to six years in a nationwide safety assessment round. During the last assessment round large dike stretches in the Dutch Wadden Sea could not meet the safety requirements, and were assessed with failure. Dike strengthening is therefore needed in these areas. However, in front of these dike salt...

A large part of the Netherlands consists of polder area. Therefore the inhabitants have to rely on the Dutch flood defence system to protect them against floods. A vast network of drainage canals ensures that the seepage water and the precipitation water is transported from the polders toward the outside water. There are several mechanisms which...

This research comprised of an investigation into outer-dike flood risks. Both direct and indirect risks were considered and an extensive uncertainty analysis was performed. Additionally, an assessment on environmental risks and protective measures was made based on the pilot of the industrial harbour the Botlek.

During the last years, flood risk assessments at continental and global scales are emerging as useful tools for risk hotspot identification, support for international policy-making and harmonization of strategies for climate change adaptation. The emergence of these models comes to cover the growing demand for integrated, large-scale risk...

The Hollandsche IJssel is a river between Rotterdam and Gouda and is protected from the main river system in the Netherlands by a storm surge barrier. The Hollandsche IJssel experiences several problems: the storm surge barrier dates from 1958 and has a relatively low closure reliability; three quarters of the dikes have been rejected according...

The Belgian Meuse is a river with a relatively low flood risk. The floodplains are narrow, and the estimated impact is not large until the flood reaches a magnitude of a once in a 200 years event. Flooding along the Belgian Meuse could however have an effect on the flood safety in the Netherlands, since there the flood defences are dimensioned...

Hydrological models are used for several purposes, from reservoir management to stormflow prediction. However, their predictive power is often questionable. As most rainfall-runoff models are highly dependent on calibration, models often show deteriorated performance during the validation period. This is caused by too much focus on and trust in...

Large parts of the Netherlands are exposed to the threats of flooding due to the influence of high water coming from the North Sea region, due to high discharge of rivers like the Meuse and Rhine or due to a combination of North Sea water levels and river discharges. In order to cope these threats, strategies are developed in the Delta Program...

A large part of the flood defences in The Netherlands does not meet the present safety standards. In 2014 the delta programme has proposed new safety standards, which are based on the flood risk approach. These new safety standards will for a lot of river dikes be stricter than the currently prevailing safety standards. A lot of work has to be...

A dike is designed for an extreme event which greatly exceed the situation under daily circumstances. The expected loading during such an event is, however, difficult to estimate. Inherent uncertainties in nature and epistemic uncertainties in models and statistical data impede a clear verdict about the exact loading on a dike. Consequently,...

Flood safety in low-lying delta regions has been a challenge of all ages. Societies worldwide have been trying to protect themselves against flood hazards for centuries. Floods in vulnerable urban regions are often caused by heavy rainfall, high river flow, extreme sea levels, or combinations of those three. Currently, there is a lack of tools...

Flow sliding of submerged slopes in front of dikes affects flood safety. The occurrence of flow sliding may result, sometimes with delay, in a failure mode and consequent flooding. The current safety assessment method for flow sliding does not consider the interaction between flow sliding and failure modes. Therefore it is unclear whether the...
