Rossetti, Matteo (author)
Terps are artificial dwelling mounds mostly found in the northern regions of the Netherlands, built to provide safe ground against water in such areas affected by flooding, storm surges, and high tides, before the development of dikes. In this thesis, the stability of these terps was evaluated via FEM models and analyses performed on PLAXIS....

Sea level rise will increase the risk of flooding in coastal areas. This poses a risk to the coastal protection as well as rivers and lakes close to the coast. Solutions are needed to cope with this threat. The past decade, nature based solutions have gained significant interest. One of these solutions could be sandy foreshores. Due to the use...

Using an expensive-to-evaluate numerical model, such as a finite element method (FEM) model, is deemed unavoidable in solving modern geotechnical engineering problems. At the same time, the application of reliability analysis in dealing with uncertainties (e.g. soil properties) is increasing rapidly. This could pose a time-wise problem for an...

The extraction and processing of mineral and metal ores in the mining industry comes paired with large amounts of mine waste, also known as tailings. This waste consists of various chemicals, acids, and heavy metals which are used during these extraction processes. The tailings are usually stored off in tailings storage facilities (TSF) in a...

Major flooding occurred on the Meuse River in 1993, 1995 and 2021, causing significant damage to regions in NL, BE, DE. The flood events of 1993 and 1995 occurred in the winter, while that of 2021 occurred in the summer. There are large differences in the characteristics of these floods separated by nearly three decades; not only the seasons...

The Port of Rotterdam (PoR) is the largest port in Europe and in order to maintain its status, it would need to expand. For the expansion, an extensive survey of the subsurface is needed for the construction of new port areas and its geotechnical structures. As part of designing the geotechnical structures, the subsurface is often modelled as...

Risk-based and probabilistic reliability design methods are starting to be integrated into the daily geotechnical engineering practice, as shown by the current draft of EN1997 (Eurocode 7), which explicitly allows Reliability-based verification of limit states. The semi-probabilistic design methods in EN1997 are a compromise between ease of use...

Climate change is a major problem for today's society, which has a huge impact on water safety issues. Recent IPCC scenarios show that sea level rises of 1m by 2100 and 2m beyond 2200 should be seriously considered. Several scenarios show an increase in river discharge of between 10 and 20 percent of the Rhine generated by extreme precipitation...

The Dutch Water board revised their guidelines for the safety assessment of dikes in 2017. A major change for the assessment of macro-stability is the use of the SHANSEP method to estimate the strength of impermeable cohesive layers. The failure probabilities are estimated with a deterministic analysis using limit equilibrium methods. The use of...

Two types of calculations are currently used to assess dikes for macro stability. These are the semi-probabilistic calculation and the probabilistic calculation. In practice, the semi-probabilistic calculation is currently mostly used. However, the probabilistic calculation is the most accurate calculation of the two methods resulting in the...

The Dutch government provides a calculation method to determine the risks to society outside the boundaries of institutions handling Dangerous Goods (the risk affecting External Safety). The current method to calculate the risk affecting External Safety for train marshalling yards is deterministic, outdated, and not transparent. This thesis aims...

Nguyen, Thy Anh (author)
A new approach is proposed which uses concepts of both the limit equilibrium method (LEM) and finite element method (FEM) to analyse slope stability. The main limitation of the LEM is that it can give an incorrect display of the initial stresses. The FEM is able to overcome this limitation, however, it uses the shear strength reduction method ...

Six cyclic settlement models for sand are evaluated to analyse the settlement of automatic stacking crane (ASC) rail tracks at the Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) container terminal. During Phase 1 of the RWG container terminal settlement of the rail tracks occurred at multiple locations after the ASCs became operational....

To reduce the flood risk in areas prone to flooding, possible adaptation measures must be investigated. In this thesis a Python-based framework has been developed that can screen flood adaptation measures as an alternative to the existing analytical method of Royal HaskoningDHV. The framework is limited to the costs and effects on the economic...

Tailings are the rock flour which result from the process of mineral extraction at a mine. This waste material is stored in tailings storage facilities, also known as tailings impoundments. These impound­ments gradually grow in size during operation as more tailings are produced and stored over time. These structures are however also prone to...

Soil properties are spatially variable due to the natural deposition process. Because of this inherent spatial variability, a slope can actually fail along any potential slip surface. A single value of Factor of safety cannot account for this variation dominated the slope stability problem. Probabilistic analysis considering the spatial...

In collaboration with the University of the Bahamas, we used the Charette model, the Three-point Approach and the conceptual framework: Build Back Better to propose a solution that involves several aspects: Reduced risk overall, increased social cohesion on the island, improved life quality and reduced costs during reconstruction in the...

Continuous sea level rise and growing environmental awareness have led to increasing implementation of nature-based solutions to counter coastal erosion. An example in the Netherlands is the Sand Engine---a mega-scale sand nourishment designed to feed the Dutch coast over a period of 20 years. For such designs to work, a good understanding of...

Meyer Ranneft, Marijn (author)
Economic risk due to a potential flood event is determined by combining the estimated damages and the probability of failure for many scenarios. In recent research of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) it was stated that the sea level will rise more than expected due to climate change . This could influence the flood risk in...

A dam including a tidal power station with pumping capacity is a new type of flood defence. The negative ecological impact normally associated with closure dams is partially mitigated by including a tidal power station in the structure. Water can move through the tidal power station resulting in a reduced tidal stroke at the created lake. This...
