Hehenkamp, Max (author)
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...

Reliability analysis is a rational method for dealing with uncertainties. It is increasingly used for the design and assessment of (civil) structures. Reliability analysis, possibly in combination with performance data, allows for instance to update (extend) the lifetime of existing quay wall structures. This gives economic advantages when...

In practice, many structures among which quay walls are designed according the Dutch national guidelines (CUR). Dutch national practical guidelines (NPR), with guidelines for renovation, is still in development for the building industry. These guidelines follow the Dutch Norms (NEN) and Annexes. The guidelines propose procedures in which newly...

The Dutch flood defences are subjected to the new Dutch safety assessment program (WBI 2017) that incorporates the latest insights and safety regulations. As a consequence of the updated piping assessment model, studies are expected to identify more piping prone areas in the Netherlands, which makes it worthwhile to investigate alternative...

The design and reassessment of quays is subject to uncertainties. Examples of these uncertainties are the soil parameters, soil behavior and the current state of the structural parts. Especially in the reassessment of existing structures it is hard to prove a quay to be safe. In this thesis Bayesian updating is used as a method to reduce this...

This Thesis studies the safety assessment method for macro-stability of dikes with high foreshores. Currently, this method is a semi-probabilistic method, which does not take the presence of a foreshore into account. The research concludes that the presence of a foreshore has a significant influence on the failure probability with respect to...

Shanghai, a metropolis in the east of China, is vulnerable to flooding, and numerous floods have happened along the Huangpu River which flows through the city. In order to protect the booming city and nearly 25 million civilians’ lives and properties, a quantity of flood defences have been built along the Huangpu River. Therefore, a trustworthy...

Some dike sections in the Netherlands failed to comply with the safety standards and one of the most promising countermeasures is the construction of retaining walls inside the dike. The Dutch design codes for dikes with retaining walls rely on Finite Element Analysis (FEM) in combination with partial safety factors. However, this can lead to...

In the last decades, induced earthquakes were caused by the extraction of gas in the Dutch province of Groningen. Both magnitude and frequency of these earthquakes are expected to increase in the following years, causing a threat for the flood defence system. To guarantee the safety against flooding, it is required to take the influence of...

Animal burrowing can be a main cause of initiation thereby be a cause of breaching of flood defences. However, little guidance and literature is available on this subject. This Master Thesis investigates the contribution of badgers, porcupines and foxes to the failure of the levee of San Matteo (Modena, Italy) on 19th January 2014. Firstly, the...

After the flood of 1993 and 1995 in the Netherlands, flood risks in Limburg became an important discussion. Each flood defence system along the river Meuse needs to be provided with a safety level with an annual failure probability of 1/250. In the nearby future a new safety philosophy will be introduced, entailing new safety norms and...

Miranda, C.A. (author)
The traditional Dutch way to deal with piping for river levees is the implementation of piping berms. The disadvantage of such a measure is the inland space required, especially in urban areas. Relief wells, on the other hand, require less or no inland space and therefore represent an attractive solution as mitigation measure against piping. The...

A committee of Civieltechnisch Centrum Uitvoering Research en Regelgeving (CUR) is currently (2012) working on the update of the handbook Quay Walls (CUR 211). In the past the partial safety factors in this book were derived using a spring model, but new developments enable to use Finite Element Methods (FEM) to model sheet-pile structures and...

Properties of soils are spatially variable and to describe the behaviour of soils as a response to loading, this variability appears crucial in giving the correct range of possible solutions for structure response. Because site investigation techniques only provide exact information at a limited part of the site, random field simulations are...

Mamo, M. (author)
Spatial variability of heterogeneous soils has been known widely. Eurocode 7 draws attention to spatial variability by suggesting reliability based characteristic values and statistical characterization of soil properties. This dissertation describes the statistical characterization of hydraulic sand fill in the Port of Rotterdam for the...
