At this moment hydraulic structures are designed based on a simple method: the Dynamic Amplification Factor (DAF) method. This method does not consider the full dynamic interaction between the wave impacts, structure and water. The research project DynaHicS focusses on the dynamic behaviour of hydraulic structures, taking into account fluid...

Nature-based flood defence is an innovative design alternative for achieving protection against flooding. Despite significant advancements in science, models and concepts, routine implementation beyond pilot projects remains limited. To better understand why, we have looked into the complexities of nature-based flood defence implementation...

“During the last safety assessment of Rijkswaterstaat in 2006 the Afsluitdijk failed on the current safety standards regarding flood protection. A new design was needed which ensured continuous protection against flooding in the future. Large scale and small scale tests are performed to optimize the design. Clear differences in the average wave...

After more than 85 years, the iconic Afsluitdijk is in need of a reinforcement. During the latest safety assessment of Rijkswaterstaat the dike did not meet the standards at two components; the amount of wave overtopping (>10 l/m/s) and armour stability. This research goes into detail about the overtopping on the Afsluitdijk. In the new...

Climate change raises serious concerns for policymakers that want to ensure the success of long-term policies. To guarantee satisfactory decisions in the face of deep uncertainties, adaptive policy pathways might be used. Adaptive policy pathways are designed to take actions according to how the future will actually unfold. In adaptive...

Climate change is likely to affect our infrastructures in the Netherlands and seems to accelerate: sooner, faster, stronger. This stresses the need for adaptable infrastructure. Asset owners cannot assume a certain final situation of the infrastructure and the impacts on it due to climate change. This report answers the following research...

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...

The most famous dam of the Netherlands, the Afsluitdijk, is in need of renovation. Hydraulic conditions for the year 2050, for some aspects even 2100, must be considered during the renovation of the dam originally constructed 1927-1933. A combination of sea level rise due to climate change and a change in the applied statistical methods result...

At the moment, for determining the safety of the dike ring areas around the IJsselmeer a possible failure of the Afsluitdijk is assumed to have no influence on loads occurring on the IJsselmeer dikes. As failure of the Afsluitdijk is always possible, the consequences of such a failure should be investigated. The objective of this thesis is to...

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....

The Afsluitdijk is unable to withstand the future conditions that belong to an annual probability of occurrence of 1/10 000 per year for water level and wave conditions. Solution of Rijkswaterstaat is to strengthen the dike according to the principle of the wave overtopping resilient dike (NL: Overslagbestendige dijk). Therefore the Afsluitdijk...

Het primaire doel van deze studie is het bepalen van de economisch optimale toetskans voor de Afsluitdijk en andere dijken. Uit de studie blijkt ook dat het welvaartsverhogend is de Afsluitdijk te versterken conform een recent kabinetsbesluit. Als daarnaast wordt uitgegaan van pompen op de Afsluitdijk en de Houtribdijk én indien alle dijkringen...

The Afsluitdijk (Enclosure Dam) is a major causeway in the Netherlands, which was constructed between 1927 and 1933, running from Den Oever on Wieringen in North Holland province, to the village of Zurich in Friesland province. The dam is 32 kilometers long and 90 m wide, with an initial height of 7.25 m above sea-level and a slope of 1:4 ...

The Afsluitdijk (Enclosure Dam) is a main dam that forms the fundamental part of the larger Zuiderzee Works that separates the Zuiderzee, a salt water inlet of the North Sea, and turning it into the fresh water lake of the IJsselmeer. It protects the central Netherlands from the effects of the North Sea. It was constructed between 1927 and 1933,...

The morphology of tidal basins includes a wide range of features developing along different spatial and temporal scales. Examples are shoals, channels, banks, dunes and ripples. Coastal engineers use their engineering tools to answer questions on the processes governing the short term (< decades) development of these morphological features....

Introduction Floods are a threat to millions of people who live in lowlands like the Netherlands. Therefore the Dutch government has been given re-quirements for primary flood defence systems like dikes. The current condition of most of these dikes does not fulfill to these requirements based on flood risk analyses of RWS. The most logical step...

De eind 2007 vastgestelde Leidraad Rivieren geeft voor het eerst invulling aan het begrip “robuust ontwerpen”. Bij een eerste toepassing op een aantal dijkversterkingsprojecten in dit kader zijn echter vragen omtrent de toepassing van de Leidraad Rivieren ontstaan. Het “addendum op de Leidraad Rivieren t.b.v. het ontwerpen van rivierdijken” ...

Na 75 jaar is de Afsluitdijk toe aan en flinke opknapbeurt, concludeert het kabinet in de Watervisie uit 2007. Het kabinet wil weten of er, als er dan toch opgeknapt moet worden niet méér kan. Of een betere veiligheid te combineren valt met bijvoorbeeld natuur, duurzaam opwekken van energie of betere verbindingen voor wegverkeer en scheepvaart....
