The Meuse river basin covers an area of 33,000 km2, touches five countries and is a major communication route in Europe. It is one of the catchments with longest streamflow records, with daily measures of discharge dating back to the beginning of the previous century. Attempts to model streamflow with standard hydrological models revealed that...

Over one hundred scour holes are located in the Rhine-Meuse delta. These scour holes have relatively large depths and steep slopes and could pose a risk to the stability of river banks and hydraulic structures, especially since some scour holes are still growing. Scour holes develop at locations where either the hydrodynamics or the erodibility...

The Belgian Meuse is a river with a relatively low flood risk. The floodplains are narrow, and the estimated impact is not large until the flood reaches a magnitude of a once in a 200 years event. Flooding along the Belgian Meuse could however have an effect on the flood safety in the Netherlands, since there the flood defences are dimensioned...

After the flood of 1993 and 1995 in the Netherlands, flood risks in Limburg became an important discussion. Each flood defence system along the river Meuse needs to be provided with a safety level with an annual failure probability of 1/250. In the nearby future a new safety philosophy will be introduced, entailing new safety norms and...

Design water levels are a basic concept in flood risk management practice. These water levels with a specified return period are used for the design of dikes and other flood protection measures along the river Meuse. Current practice is that these water levels are determined by hydrodynamic simulation of a standard design hydrograph at the...

Due to the closure of the Haringvliet in 1970 as part of the Delta works and the opening of the Beerdam in 1997, the course of the tidal flow in the Rhine-Meuse delta has changed. The tidal flow from and towards the Haringvliet is now completely taking place through the branches that connect the Haringvliet with the Nieuwe Maas and Nieuwe...

The formation of the current Rhine-Meuse delta has mainly taken place during the Holocene (the last 12,000 years). This period is characterised by avulsions that lead to sudden shifts in the location of river channels. The channel deposits left behind by abandoned rivers are often distinct sandy layers in the shallow sub-surface, called buried...

In general, an inland navigation lock has a structural lifespan of about 100 years, while in most cases this lock is not big enough anymore after 25 - 50 years. This is caused by the growing ship dimensions and/or intensities. A functional flexible lock is the solution for extending the functional lifespan. This type of lock is, with or without...

Schoonen, P.E.M. (author)
The floods of the River Rhine and the River Meuse in 1993 and 1995 pointed out the importance of river intervention works to maintain safety for surrounding inhabitants. To predict the consequences of such engineering measures on river morphology, numerical computer models are used. Due to the high socio-economic value of the Dutch river system...
