To protect the hinterland, flood defences are often located on the border between water and land. This same border however is also an attractive place to live, which may hamper improvement of flood protections. Closing off a tidal (river) system, especially in case of little discharge, may in this case be a logical consideration. This would...

Robustness is a hard-to-grip concept within engineering. This master thesis uses a framework to quantify the level of robustness that has been proposed by the Joint Committee on Structural Safety to assess the influence of the reliability requirement of a structural element. The lock complex at Weurt (the Netherlands) has been used for a case...

Additional thesis - The Maeslant barrier was the final piece of the Delta works which protects a large area of the Netherlands. However the present barrier seems to fulfil his function, several Dutch experts have doubts about the system. However the discussion on the Maeslant barrier not being safe enough refers mostly to future scenarios....

The possibility of multi-hazards, the occurrence of two or more (natural) hazards at once or shortly after another in the same location, can lead to an increased risk of structural damage and life loss. In the Netherlands, seismically-unprepared houses are especially vulnerable to newly expected earthquakes in the region of Groningen. These...

The Tilting Lock is an innovative solution for locations where road traffic crosses marine traffic overhead by a bridge. The occurrence of traffic jams at a bridge during the passage of vessels can be reduced by the construction of a Tilting Lock. By 'submerging' the vessels in the Tilting Lock underneath the bridge, the Tilting Lock increases...

Navigation locks are used to transport vessels between waterways with different water levels. In the nearby future many navigation locks will be renovated or replaced. During the design of a new lock still some unknown factors are encountered. One of these factors is the vibration of the valve. The valve is part of the filling and emptying...

The city of Amsterdam increases with approximately 10,000 inhabitants per year and Amsterdam-North is strongly under development attracting housing, employment and (re)creational activities. This is expected to induce a growth of 65% in pedestrians and cyclists, referred to as slow traffic. crossing the river IJ in 2025. The city ferry system,...

On 29 October 2012 hurricane Sandy hit the coast of New York City. This category 1 hurricane had a devastating effect: large parts of the city were flooded and the city was out of business for several days. An estimated total damage of $41.9 billion had occurred of which $5 billion in account of the metro system. The largest damage was to the...

In recent years, in a number of projects gate drive mechanisms of navigation locks were checked or adapted for a longer service life, during which the reliability, safety and availability of the structure had to be guaranteed for an extended period. Several problems were encountered. When verifying the gate drive mechanism, it was found that the...

The Netherlands are protected against extreme high waters from the sea by an ingenious system of barriers. One of the most famous ones is the Maeslant barrier in the New Waterway near the port of Rotterdam. This barrier however, is subject to discussion, as it might not function as intended, because of the following reasons. It has a very low...

As part of the Afsluitdijk project the discharge capacity, which is currently facilitated by two sluice complexes, is increased to cope with future sea level rise. It was decided to realise this by an innovative solution: the pump gate. The steel lifting gates, each containing three pumps, will be implemented in the existing sluice complex in...

Within Royal HaskoningDHV an innovative concept is thought to be feasible as a new foundation for larger wind turbines in deeper waters. In this thesis the development of this innovative offshore wind turbine foundation was aided. The research focused on two topics: - Scour at this gravity based foundations. - Possible design optimisations with...

People are already living on water for centuries in some places around the world. However, the concept of building on water has been reintroduced with a new idea in the last two decades. The new idea is to realise a very large floating structure which is as big as a city. Instead of multiple independent floating houses forming a floating...

The lock complex at Terneuzen is the main entrance for ships coming from the Westerscheld and navigating towards the cities of Terneuzen and Ghent. The construction of a new large lock at the lock complex of Terneuzen is planned to increase its capacity. This lock will be built between the existing locks. The ground level is situated at NAP +6...

Due to Shanghai’s unique location, it is sensitive to sea level rise and land subsidence, which are directly related to urban flood protection. Flooding of Shanghai can be caused due to the following three factors: storm surge by typhoon, high tidal levels and sustained higher water levels in the Yangtze River and the Huangpu River as a result...

Introduction In navigation locks levelling is executed under free flow. The net flow from the upper section into the lower section of the waterway is considered as a water loss. An innovative water saving concept is an IRS Lock. IRS stands for inflatable rubber structure. The concept consists of an air filled IRS applied in a lock chamber. In...

Some storage tank terminals located in hurricane prone regions were heavily struck by hurricanes. An example is the storage tank terminal of Stolthaven Terminals (Stolt-Nielsen Limited) which is located in New-Orleans and was severely struck by Hurricane Katrina and Isaac. Damage to the terminal was caused by high wind pressures, but mainly due...

Gravity based support structure By a joint venture of BAM and Van Oord an innovative type of Gravity Based Structure (GBS) for an offshore wind turbine was developed. The GBS consist of a concrete caisson and a steel shaft. The applicable water depth range is between 35 and 60m. Hydrodynamic loading on the shaft In order to optimize the support...

The degradation of infrastructure and sea level rise cause the existing discharge capacity of the Stevin and Lorentz sluices at the Afsluitdijk to be insufficient. This thesis focuses on the design of a new discharge facility at the Afsluitdijk with the possibility to anticipate on the changing conditions at both the IJsselmeer and Wadden Sea....
