Shanghai sea dikes are built to protect shorelines, factories, inland buildings and other vulnerable coastal areas against wave action and storm surge. For this reason, there is an urgent need to check whether sea dike in Shanghai can function well. The intuitive influences are sea level rise, severe storm surge, and land subsidence, which...

The Netherlands has for long been witnessing problems due to subsidence. While urban infrastructure is mostly safeguarded from differential settlement by deep pile foundations, the same cannot be said about greenhouses. The greenhouses of the Netherlands has enabled the country to become the largest exporter of vegetables, second only to the...

Delta cities all around the world are under pressure from different forms of climate change effects. Soil subsidence as a result of peat oxidation, and anthropogenic loading of the soil. The soil in many of the heavily urbanised deltas around the world is subsiding faster than the see level is rising as a result of climate change. Few people are...

Subsidence is affecting different parts of the Netherlands. The strongest subsidence is observed in the province of Groningen due to ongoing natural gas extraction. Subsidence is also observed at several locations in the province of South Holland, where the processes of peat oxidation, soil compaction and the withdrawal of groundwater are at the...

Kampung Air is set in the city of Semarang in Indonesia. This city is facing enormous problems due to land subsidence. Kampung Melayu, which is the location of this project, has a rich history based on trade and commerce. However, now it is mostly abandoned and not functioning anymore. This project tries to deal with these problems by creating a...

In a world with growing energy consumption, and concerns over climate quality, new ways of producing and storing clean energy is more relevant than ever. Storing ‘green’ gas (e.g. methane) is a new concept building on well-established fundamentals. Using renewable energy, through electrochemical processes (i.e. electrolysis), hydrogen is first...

In Mumbai, “two-thirds of the city’s (Bombay) residents are crowded<br/>into just 5 percent of the total area, while the richer or more rent-protected one-third monopolize the remaining 95 percent.” The Development Plans for Mumbai, criticized as “a form of ‘planned’ exclusion of the poor and the middle class”, have failed to address issues of...

Wetlands are the most important ecosystems on Earth, which can be found in many parts of the world. However, demand for food and economic development in the last century had driven many wetlands in the world being completely drained for cultivation and to the extent that no longer retain any natural wetland characteristics such as the Everglades...

Degenerative disc disorders are among the most commonly diagnosed conditions and the leading cause for back and neck pain, affecting more than 266 million individuals annually. Interbody fusion is the proposed surgical treatment whenever lighter approaches such as physiotherapy and painkillers fail to improve the patient’s condition. It consists...

In the Netherlands, the Delta Programme aspires to adjust spatial planning climate-proof and water-resilient, in order to be prepared for extreme weather in 2050. To achieve this ambition, municipalities, provinces, regional water authorities and central governments conduct stress tests to map out the vulnerabilities in their areas of authority...

Urban development in the Rijnmond-Drechsteden requires large quantities of sand and gravel for its application in e.g. concrete in buildings or fill sand for subsidence maintenance. The graduation project focuses on how urban design can reduce this consumption within the sand and gravel metabolism in the construction ecosystem. Based on a...

Since 1918 AkzoNobel produces salt by means of solution mining from the bedded Triassic Röt Evaporite deposit in the eastern part of the Netherlands. In this technique water is pumped into the rock salt layer through a well and dissolves the halite in situ. Subsequently the brine is pumped to the purification plant at surface level where the...

In 2014, a project, Living Lab Land Subsidence, is established to find a sustainable solution for land subsidence problem in Gouda. Being a part of the project, this research focuses on building a high-resolution groundwater model (2m*2m) by describing the model (such as recharge, leaky sewerage pipes) in local details. Water management...

There is an increased need for modelling the Dutch overburden to improve the prediction of earthquakes and subsidence due to the extraction of hydrocarbons. Depending on the surface location, the subsidence model of the NAM can under or over predict the amount of subsidence by 4 to 5 cm. This is around 15 % of the current maximum subsidence of...

Steam injection is an EOR method, which is mostly used for heavy oil production. This viable method is based on increasing the pore pressure in the reservoir and reducing the viscosity of the heavy oil. In particular cases, the increase in pore pressure and thermal expansion related to the steam injection leads to surface deformation – heave....

Inhabitants and ecosystems in delta areas are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the effects of subsidence, triggered both by natural causes and anthropogenic causes. Yangon is a city in the Irrawaddy delta in Myanmar where little is known about the true extent of this hazard, while its effects can potentially harm millions of its inhabitants....

Organic soft soils pose technical challenges in construction industry due to their extraordinary compressibility and deformability, which is an issue of particular relevance in the densely populated Netherlands, of which more than half of the land surface is covered by such soft soils. Uncertainty and variability in settlement predictions for...

The Pampanga and Angat River Delta, located on the northern side of the Manila Bay in a large alluvial plain, are regularly confronted with worsening fluvial and tidal floods. Subsidence rates up to 4.5 cm/year due to excessive groundwater extraction are the main cause of the worsening floods. Five measures are presented to reduce the floods: -...

Reliability based calculations and the identification of uncertainties in geomechanical calculations are receiving an increasing amount of attention to evaluate risk. This poses multiple challenges, of which one is the variability of input parameters such as geomechanical properties, geological structures and distribution of material properties....
