In the Netherlands, dikes are the most commonly used structures to retain water and provide safety against flooding. In order to ensure the safety of these dikes against a number of different failure mechanisms such as backwards erosion piping, wave overtopping and macro stability, a detailed safety assessment has been created. The focus of this...

To fulfil the new safety standards of the Netherlands against flooding in the future, a great deal of work needs to be performed to prepare the flood defences system, at a quicker pace than is currently achieved. For this reason the HWBP is researching methods which can improve the efficiency of dike reinforcement projects. This thesis was...

In the Netherlands dikes are assessed on piping using the model developed by Sellmeijer. This model is calibrated on experiments with permeable, homogeneous, fluvial sand with no fines and covered by an impermeable cohesive layer. In tidal areas, however, the sand deposits are strongly heterogenous, contain fines and are influenced by...

During construction of breakwaters, adverse weather conditions can result in damage, in the form of reshaping and loss of material to the open work fronts of the structure. Based on literature research, analysis of work methods, analysis of damage to older breakwater projects and interviews, it was deduced that during construction, the open work...

Maturity model has proven to be helpful for an organization to identify its current capability, strength, and weaknesses through maturity levels. These levels are used to rank the various dimension or process of an organization. However, maturity levels only describe a general description of organization capability. The effect of different...

The Haringvliet sluices is one of the Delta Works. The sluices were finished in 1970 and are thus 50 years old. This research is initiated because the expected lifetime of hydraulic structures is thought to decrease significantly due to climate change. This study aims to provide insight in the functions the Haringvliet...

Flood risk management is the process of analysing, assessing and (if required) reducing flood risks, in terms of economic costs and affected population or loss of life. The analysis is performed through a probabilistic approach in which the factors are represented by a probability distribution function to address uncertainties. However, relevant...

With the shift of the safety standards for levees from exceedance probability (standard 1996) to flooding probability (new standard), the part of the levee failure process after the initial occurrence of a failure mechanism becomes more important for the calculation of the strength and thus, reliability of the levee cross-section. Interactions...

In dit onderzoek zal antwoord worden gegeven op de vraag: Moet het falen van gemalen mee worden genomen in de watersysteemtoets? In de 6-jaarlijkse toetsing van de waterschappen wordt bepaald of het watersysteem voldoet aan de door de provincie opgestelde eisen voor wateroverlast. Op dit moment wordt er in deze toetsing geen rekening gehouden...

Flotsam lines may arise on coastal dikes after a storm surge. These lines are generated when material due to debris accumulation on the foreshore has been transported onto the dike surface by wave run-up. Hydraulic engineers who used flotsam line measurements, interpreted a flotsam line as a line which is marking the highest wave run-up. In the...

Maturity model is widely known as an assessment tool to understand an organization management capabilities and identifying potential improvement. The model demonstrates informative results towards the organization management maturity but hard to acknowledge the influence of potential improvement towards the organization’s asset performance....

From the 3500 kilometers of primary flood defenses in the Netherlands, a third does not comply with the current standards. As a result, over 700 kilometers will be strengthened in the upcoming years. Traditional strengthening of dikes consists of strengthening with soil and requires space that is often not available. Further strengthening of...

The summer and autumn of 2018 showed the negative effects of both low-flow conditions and bed degradation over the last century on the river functions of the Dutch Rhine. These resulted in record-breaking water levels, extreme low navigation depth and subsequently nautical problems. As climate change will increase the inter-annual variability of...

Direct measurement of river discharge is difficult, time consuming and costly. Therefore a rating curve is often used to estimate the river discharge. Limited measurements under extreme conditions result in extrapolation of the rating curve for high flow conditions. This induces uncertainties and errors in the stage-discharge relation. Recently...

A large part of the world population lives in deltas or in the vicinity of a river which provides many advantages, such as access to transportation, food and drinking water. Inundating floodplains are a natural and recurring phenomenon which is for instance a way to irrigate soils, but drawbacks occur when people or infrastructure are harmed by ...

In this thesis, the effects of the foreshore and heterogeneities of the subsoil on the piping safety analysis are determined. The effects are searched for by use of the numerical model D-Geo Flow. The results of this research give more insights in when and how a foreshore has to be included in the safety analysis. It is also concluded that...

Changes in the Earth’s climate system do have consequences for the river discharges. The development of the future climate is uncertain, which causes uncertainty in the future extreme river discharges. For flood protection considerations, it is important to quantify the climate uncertainties and its effects on extreme river discharges. In this...

Conventional practices of rating curve computation fall short in many aspects. They are data-intensive and are notoriously inaccurate in high-flow regimes as a result of extrapolation of low-flow curve fitting. By making use of a simple commercial UAV, a physically-based rating curve is computed that is substantiated by a detailed representation...

The Netherlands is a low-lying delta and therefore prone to flooding. After the flood in 1953, the Delta Committee was established which commenced the Delta Works to enhance water safety for the society and economy. The Maeslant Barrier and Eastern Scheldt Barrier are the largest and most technologically advanced flood defences which are part of...

The introduction of the new 'Waterwet' led to the retesting of a lot of primary flood defences within the Netherlands, sequentially certifying a lot of levees as unsafe regarding inner slope stability. To test or design a levee an adequate amount of soil investigation is required to indicate the presence of different soil types, stratification...
