Uncertainties about climate change and the energy market constitute a major challenge in designing a pumping station. To tackle this challenge, a robust design is needed, that performs satisfactory under a wide variety of future conditions. Multi-Objective Robust Simulation Optimization (MORSO) was applied, to create a robust re-design for...

The Greater New Orleans area suffers from flooding caused by extreme rainfall events on a yearly basis. Since most stormwater is flushed into the drainage system via mostly impervious surface, water does not infiltrate into the ground, which causes subsidence due to soil drying out, which causes damages to roads, buildings and underground...

After the disastrous floods in 1953 in the Netherlands, measures are taken to improve the safety in the Netherlands. In the Southwest of the Netherlands a couple of tidal basins are closed by the construction of dams and storm surge barriers. The closure of tidal basins shortens the coastal length and can result in a cost reduction comparing...

Multilayered Safety (MLS) is seen as the next step in Dutch flood risk management. In the last decades the idea that only flood defenses can prevent floods gave way to the realization prevention can also be implemented along other lines, e.g. giving the rivers more space. The next thought was that next to preventing floods it should be possible...
