Typical for the Dutch landscape are the many polders, which are situated below sea level and below waters directly surrounding the polders. A visual separation between land and water is caused by the flood defences that protect the polders from flooding. In 2005, artist Paul Izeboud came with the idea to make a transparent flood defence, thereby...

In this research the reliability of dikes are studied that are influenced by the presence of buildings. Along many Dutch dikes (residential) buildings are present. These buildings may influence the reliability of the dike positevely and or negatively. In this study a probabilistic method is developed to determine the influence of a building,...

This document includes a survey whether the wind set-up formula is valid and accurate in case of irregularly shaped lakes with a strong varying water depth. The formula is designed for a pure theoretical situation, the question is whether the formula is valid in situations that differ a lot from the theoretical one. The research is carried out...

Voor meren is het gebruikelijk de windopzet te voorspellen met een formule die als parameters de strijklengte, de waterdiepte, de invalshoek van de wind en de windsnelheid in het kwadraat heeft. In deze formule zit een constante verwerkt die in de literatuur verschillende waarden heeft. In dit onder-zoek wordt er gekeken naar de gemiddelde...

The storm surge barrier and levees located in the Hollandsche IJssel do not fulfill the current safety standards according to the third nationwide safety assessment. The non-closure probability of the storm surge barrier is too high and the inner slope stability of the levees is too low. Besides the problems regarding the flooding safety also...

Hardly any flood defence system is a continuous dike system, since it is often interrupted by non-water retaining structures, as for example stairs, buildings, roads, fences and trees. Also larger hydraulic structures as floodgates and sluices are sometimes situated in the dike alignment. The transition between these different objects and the...
