The dissertation explores the use of emergency measures, particularly the BresDefender, to prevent or delay levee failure and mitigate the impacts of floods, focusing on the Netherlands' flood protection systems. Levees are vital for protecting low-lying areas, but there's always a risk of failure, leading to significant societal and material...

Emergency response is a procedural safety barrier of paramount importance for the mitigation of fire scenarios and the prevention of escalation. However, in Natech scenarios, emergency response may be affected by the natural event impacting the site. Indeed, when contrasting Natech accidents, emergency responders have to face both the natural...

Road traffic crash is a global tragedy that leads to economic loss, injury, and fatalities. Understanding the severity of a road crash at the early stages is vital to timely providing emergency medical services to crash victims. This study developed a crash emergency response management framework that requires basic crash information for...

When a major chemical accident occurs, emergency response is an important measure to reduce accident losses. Some actions in an emergency response may be more important than others in reducing accident losses, so they need to be carried out as a matter of priority. The impact of the number of emergency personnel on the relationship between...

Practicing fire scenarios in emergency response training is very hard due to various obstacles. An example is when holding a training, real fire will preferably not be used as it can become threatening. Real fire will only be used in a surrounding where safety is ensured, which is probably outdoors. An emergency responder hardly knows that it...

Fire is one of the main accident scenarios occurring in chemical and process plants, and it can lead to domino effects due to thermal radiation. Emergency response is necessary to prevent fire escalation, in addition to safety barriers. In major industrial fire accidents, backup is usually required in emergency response, due to the lack of...

During the July 2021 Flood, the main flood defences along the River Meuse in the Netherlands performed well and did not breach. This paper is meant to document the various incidents on the flood defence system. As such, it provides an overview and description of the reported incidents related to flood defences, including a few breaches in minor...

Emergency response is an important way to reduce losses after a major industrial accident occurs and mitigation measures should be arranged and analyzed in preparedness. The cooperation in emergency response actions which make up an emergency response process has a significant impact on the efficiency and success rate (or reliability) of...

A fire accident is one the most dangerous accidents that may lead to knock-on effects, especially in the plants dealing with large quantities of hazardous substances. Different from other accidents, e.g., explosions, fires can last certain period of time and the thermal radiations emitted by them have a synergistic effect. At the same time, the...

Unlike outdoor environments, there is no wide-spread solution to positioning inside a building. Indoorsolutions rely on pre-installation of infrastructure, such as Bluetooth beacons or ultra-wide bandtechnology. Recently, there has been growing interest in the use of Augmented Reality (AR) for indoorpositioning. AR devices use an algorithm known...

Design and operationalization for Search and Rescue (SAR) activities are unstructured and complex multi-criteria decision-making problems, especially for maritime emergency scenario. There is a lack of decision support methods based on intelligent algorithms to shorten the response time and to reduce the loss of life and property. The primary...

Background: Currently the Royal Netherlands Army (RNLA) has a traditional three echelon supply chain consisting of suppliers that deliver to a warehouse and the warehouse that delivers to customers. However, the RNLA is interested in having its stock geographically spread for safety reasons. A solution for this would be to re-design the supply...
