van Veelen, P.C. (author)
Although storm at the North Sea produces moderate flood levels compared to the hurricane-impacted storm surge flood levels at the East Coast, Rotterdam and New York show comparable flood characteristics (see Figures at top next page). The majority of the urbanized waterfront areas in New York City and Rotterdam...

Several alternative concepts could be developed that would integrate the structure of the Roof Park shopping complex with the flood defense. It is common practice in engineering to develop various concepts, keeping the project goal in mind. This is a creative process that should not be hampered by overly precise...

Galveston Island is a barrier island with a population of approximately 60,000, located between Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico on the Texas coast. Due to its location, Galveston is not only on the front line of hurricane-induced storm surges coming from the Gulf, it is also a key site for any flood defense aiming to protect the entire...

Katwijk aan Zee is a Dutch town on the North Sea, near the original mouth of the Rhine. At the end of the twentieth century, part of the town of Katwijk appeared to be insufficiently protected against storm surges from sea (Figure 2). About 3000 inhabitants were in fact exposed to risks that were higher than what...

Various interesting tools were used and/or developed to stimulate knowledge integration in the Multifunctional Flood Defenses program. This chapter will present a diverse collection of these tools, hopefully stimulating others to consider using some of them in future.

Many functions are combined in the Rotterdam Roof Park project: It is a shopping mall, a parking garage, a park on the roof, and last but not least, a flood defense. The research in our program was done after the buildings and structures had been built. So the research projects were not hampered by the...

Estimates of levee system reliability can conflict with experience and intuition. For example, a very high failure probability may be computed while no evidence of failure has been observed, or a very low failure probability when signs of failure have been detected. This conflict results in skepticism about the...

Katwijk is a small coastal town located at the old mouth of the River Rhine and along the North Sea. The national flood safety inspection of the coastal area demonstrated the need for the construction of a new sea dike to protect some 4000 people living in the city centre. The dune-covered coastline near the town...

The MFFD research program aims for integral design of multifunctional flood defenses. A team of academic researchers from multiple disciplinary backgrounds would integrate their knowledge to reach this goal. The aim of the current research project was to design and organize an interactive trajectory by means of...

Can the recent rise of Dutch multifunctional flood defenses be explained by the increased integration between the water and spatial planning sectors, which compels Water Boards to collaborate with municipalities? An enquiry into the changing relations between water managers and municipalities as a result of...

Islam, T. (author)
The large-scale deployment and maintenance of infrastructure is time consuming and expensive. Over time, with changing demands and threats, these artifacts need replacement, upgrades or removal. Designing these objects assuming a fixed life or for perpetuity, neglects the reality of mutability of our built...

Aguilar Lopez, J.P. (author)
Based on the materials that are present in the flood defense, the resistance to failure mechanisms also changes as the deterioration rates change. In that sense, the optimum size of flood defenses can be better determined if the inherent uncertainty associated with the materials is reduced.

Flood risk analysis is necessary to make smart, informed decisions about which risk reduction measures deserve priority. When levee systems play a key role in flood protection, these decisions often translate to which levee improvements should be carried out first. In flood risk analysis, the probability that a...

In the case of wave overtopping, structures constructed above the flood defense will change the hydrodynamic behavior of the overtopped waves. This will change the scouring rates of the inner grass cover.

Dikes are attractive locations to construct wind turbines. Wind turbines can accentuate the dike as a linear element in the landscape. Dikes are often windy spots, that are accessible for construction and maintenance using the existing work road along the dike. With the construction of wind turbines on a dike,...

The dike reinforcement project Kinderdijk – Schoonhovenseveer (KIS) is part of the Lekdijk, a primary flooddefense that directly protects two major polders in its hinterland fromflooding by the Rhine: the Alblasserwaard and the Vijfheerenlanden polders. Theinitial expansion of local villages (in the Middle Ages)...

When the MFFD program took off in 2012, its general goal was to gain a deeper understanding of multifunctional flood defenses, in order to provide a solid foundation for their design, assessment and management. As a point of departure, it assumed that a new generation of explicitly multifunctional flood defenses...

Over the past centuries, numerous examples of what we now call multifunctional flood defenses (MFFDs) have emerged in the Netherlands, ranging from houses or even entire villages built on polder dikes, to large scale developments in urban areas like Rotterdam, Dordrecht and Scheveningen. These developments were not planned as such, but emerged...
