We need to tell a new story about urbanizing delta regions. Historically, large-scale ‘iconic’ hydraulic works and modern industrial ports have been celebrated as showing the power of humans to control and subject nature. The emphasis on this part of cultural heritage tends to bury the remains of engineering and urban development of the previous...

During construction of breakwaters, adverse weather conditions can result in damage, in the form of reshaping and loss of material to the open work fronts of the structure. Based on literature research, analysis of work methods, analysis of damage to older breakwater projects and interviews, it was deduced that during construction, the open work...

The growing penetration of renewable energy sources in electricity systems requires adapting operation models to face the inherent variability and uncertainty of wind or solar generation. In addition, the volatility of fuel prices (such as natural gas) or the uncertainty of the hydraulic natural inflows requires to take into account all these...

The amount of international shipped cargo grows steadily, and seas are exploited for seabed mining and energy production more than ever. As a result, there is an increase in traffic density and decrease in free navigational space, potentially causing a higher incidence of dangerous navigation situations that may lead to ship collisions. This...

The construction sector has rather poorly developed organisational learning capabilities (Styhre, Josephson, & Knauseder, 2004) and this results in lessons not being learned and applied in future projects. Lessons learned form the intellectual assets of an organisation and can help to reduce project risks (Carrillo, Ruikar, & Fuller,...

The continuous innovation within the telecommunications industry is compounded by changing risks for the consumer. This is the case within the Netherlands, where the use of the internet has a pervasive influence on society, necessitating robust telecommunication networks and services. The telecommunications industry is regulated by the...

Power systems have been subjected to several changes due to a constant evolution over the last years. The changes that come along with this evolution include several aspects such as the introduction of variable energy generation from renewable sources, changes in the network's topology, storage, new regulation policies, liberalization of markets...

In the coming decades, more frequent and more extensive climate disasters such as coastal and river floods, droughts, extreme weather, and wildfires can be expected worldwide. Innovations will be required to face this grand challenge. The BRIGAID project developed a methodology consisting of a Test- and Implementation Framework and a set of...

The aim of this thesis is to model fully collateralized exposures in the presence of the Margin Period of Risk, i.e., the time between the last successful collateral call to the time where the amount of the loss crystallizes. We start with introducing a closed-form expression to model fully collateralized exposures for fixed versus floating...

Risk assessment has a primary role in safety-critical industries. However, it faces a series of overall challenges, partially related to technology advancements and increasing needs. There is currently a call for continuous risk assessment, improvement in learning past lessons and definition of techniques to process relevant data, which are...

Despite of extensive and systematic usage of ‘Lag’ type of performance metrics, Large Infrastructure Projects (LIPs) often struggle in achieving the intended performance and frequently tend to be overbudget & delivered late. This research investigates Key ‘Lead’ Indicators (KLIs) and provides suggestions on how to measure and influence them...

Maturity model has proven to be helpful for an organization to identify its current capability, strength, and weaknesses through maturity levels. These levels are used to rank the various dimension or process of an organization. However, maturity levels only describe a general description of organization capability. The effect of different...

Hurricanes impose great threats on coastal communities in terms of hazard and impact. Recent hurricanes like Harvey (Texas, 2017) and Idai (Mozambique, 2019) emphasize the global character of this threat. In the U.S., Hurricane Harvey tied with 2005's Hurricane Katrina as the costliest tropical cyclone on record, inflicting $125 billion in...

In the Netherlands, the extraction of natural gas from the ground has led to soil subsidence and the occurrence of earthquakes. These earthquakes cause physical damage to buildings and give rise to psychological distress. Research on the impact of natural hazards, such as earthquakes, has shown that there is a complicated relationship between...

Monitoring organisations are currently in a transition phase towards risk-based inspections using data models and algorithms in order to increase their efficiency and transparancy. The use of data by monitoring organisations has several benefits, but can at the same time have negative effects in the medium- to long-term. This study explores...

The research effort on autonomous ships has increased over the last years. The realisation of these ships will have as a consequence that the crew can be reduced significantly or even be removed entirely, resulting in unmanned ships. Although there is a strong belief that unmanned ships would lead to more economic efficiency, only limited...

In the Rhine-Meuse Delta over 100 scour holes are located. Many of these scour holes have dynamic behaviour and are growing in size and depth. A scour hole can lead to an increased probability of flooding. One of the potential hazards of the presence of scour holes is the occurrence of flow slides on the foreshore next to scour holes. Depending...

Flood risk management is the process of analysing, assessing and (if required) reducing flood risks, in terms of economic costs and affected population or loss of life. The analysis is performed through a probabilistic approach in which the factors are represented by a probability distribution function to address uncertainties. However, relevant...

In this thesis we statistically analyze violent conflicts. The main focus lies on the risk of occurrence of large wars. We collected data that provides the total amount of casualties, for every known war, in the time span 768CE - 2019. The distribution of the data suggests a presence of a long right tail. We have used different graphical tools...
