On the morning of August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans. A storm of Katrinas strength and intensity is expected to cause major flooding but the main portion of the destruction was caused by its exposure to failures at almost all levels of responsibility. In Katrinas wake, a Grand Plan for Louisiana is introduced by the Louisiana...

The second Delta-committee (September 2008) foresees difficulty in resolving flood safety issues for Rotterdam and Dordrecht if high river runoffs are still running through the New Waterway. A new safety issue, induced by climate changes, lies in the combination of closed sea defensives and relatively high river runoffs at the same time. A...

In 2008 kwam de tweede Deltacommissie met het voorstel om het waterpeil van het IJsselmeer in de toekomst met 1,5 m te verhogen. Door de verwachte zeespiegelstijging zal het namelijk steeds moeilijker worden om het overtollige water van het IJsselmeer af te voeren naar zee. Om dit onder vrij verval te kunnen blijven doen is een peilopzet...

Door de klimaatveranderingen voorziet de Deltacommissie 2008 problemen voor het Rijnmond gebied. De Maeslantkering en andere stormvloedkeringen zullen vaker moeten sluiten. Ook zullen de rivierafvoeren vaker extreme waardes aannemen. De kans dat een stormvloed samenvalt met een extreem hoge rivierafvoer neemt daarom toe. In het geval van een...

Guidance structures are built in the vicinity of a sluice complex to serve as berth for ships waiting for the sluice to be available. The structure is loaded by the ship and should stop the ship without being damaged. The design of a guidance structure did not significantly change over the last decades. Therefore one could talk about a...

Design of a lock gate for Nieuwe Zeesluis in IJmuiden becomes a challenge when the boundary conditions limit the choice for the conventional types of the gate. The available width of the lock does not allow a straight rolling gate to be considered as a possible alternative as it is in most similar cases. All the initial efforts of this study...

The Nederrijn and Lek are presently dammed by three weirs, build in 1960 till 1970, which are located near the village of Driel, Amerongen, and Hagestein after which they are named. Weir Driel regulates the distribution of water at the IJsselkop for dammed conditions (discharges lower than 2350 m3/s at Lobith). A minimum discharge of 285 m3/s...

Flood protection of the land around an estuary has been important for the Netherlands since the floodings of 1953. There are several types of possible solutions. For example; levee heightening, construction of a dam or a storm surge barrier. All these solutions have certain disadvantages, like costs or environmental impact. Another option is a...

At the entrance of the IJzer River estuary in Belgium a storm surge barrier is being constructed. This raises a couple questions: At what safety level can the barrier best be built? What barrier type suits the specific site conditions the best? What are the consequences of a storm surge barrier at that location, and how can they be solved? This...

An ambition is that in the near future more inflatable dams can be applied as storm surge barriers. Hence, the main objective of this study is to investigate the applicability of rubber storm surge barriers at larger scales than currently applied. To achieve this objective the inflatable barrier concept (inflatable barriers applied as storm...

In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Ike to the Galveston Bay Area, Texas, United States in September 2008, several proposals emerged to protect the region against future storm surges. One of them is a coastal spine called the ’Ike Dike’. A challenge for this 160 km [100 mi] long flood protection is to cross Bolivar Roads, a 2.8 km...

Tokyo Bay is an area exposed to storm surges generated by typhoons. Consequently lowlands along its coastline are subject to flood risk. Dike walls, levees and barriers have been developed by the Japanese to protect these coastal areas. In the coming decades it is expected that a rise in sea level will occur. Also, climate change is expected to...

The demand for the reduction of maintenance of structures especially those in marine environments is increasing and more is asked of structures in terms of durability and capacity. Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) could be a solution to reduce the maintenance of these structures, because of its high durability and as an ad-vantages lighter...
