The risk of flooding in coastal zones is expected to increase due to sea level rise and economic development. In larger bays, estuaries, and coastal waterways, storm surge barriers can be constructed to temporarily close off these systems during storm surges to provide coastal flood protection. Worldwide, 18 storm surge barriers have been...

In this study an overview of existing and planned storm surge barriers in the world is provided. A systematic analysis relates functional requirements (e.g. navigation and tidal exchange) to the main barrier characteristics (e.g. gate type, dimensions). Furthermore, as the costs of barriers are an important issue in the planning, available cost...

Assessing swimmer safety along the Dutch coast entails more than only assessing the risk of rip currents. Seven criteria have been formulated to make a comprehensive assessment of swimmer safety along the Dutch coast. These are based on interviews with lifeguards, rescue report statistics and detailed lagrangian measurements of the current...

The earthquake and tsunami of March 2011 led to death and destruction in coastal areas in Japan. A seminar was held in June 2012 for Japanese and Dutch coastal researchers to discuss lessons for the management of the risks in coastal areas associated with tsunamis, typhoons and storm surges. The seminar has highlighted important practical and...

In a historical perspective, flood protection in the past was not given high priority - plague and periods of famine and war took precedence. Poverty and a lack of knowledge made it difficult to create safer dikes. Dike engineering did improve in Napoleonic era due to the French Central Government, but many dikes still failed. A historical...

This paper aims at risk analysis and the investigation of safety aspects of coastal flood defences in Vietnam. The sea dike system has been actually designed by a 20 to 25 years return period. From the current situation it seems that the dike system is not sufficient to withstand the actual sea boundary conditions. Accurate safety assessment of...

It is proven that wave run up on rough slopes is underestimated in small scale model tests due to scale / model effects. Given this fact, the same effects are suspected to be present for wave overtopping. A thorough comparison between prototype measurements of wave overtopping at three different coastal structures and scale model tests of these...

One of the main objectives within the EU-project CLASH (www.clash-eu.org) was to create a generic prediction method for wave overtopping at coastal structures by means of the Neural Network technique. An extensive and homogeneous database on wave overtopping was set up within CLASH, mainly with the aim to be used for the training process of the...

Coastal rock structures are widely used in coastal engineering for a variety of purposes, including controlling the morphological development of beaches and providing protection against coastal erosion or flooding by wave overtopping. Strict adherence to existing design guidance has resulted in many of these structures being built using multiple...

The objective of this paper is to bring some international perspectives on the policy, design, construction, and monitoring aspects of Hydraulic and Coastal Structures in general, and whenever possible, to present some comparison (or reasons for differences) between the experiences of various countries and/or geographical regions. This chapter...

This manual gives information about how to use the P.C.-model ODIFLOCS. The wave action on and in several types of coastal structures can be computed. The necessary input data and the output data have been described. Although many phenomena are implemented in the model, which resulted in rather accurate predictions of several properties, further...

Shock pressures of high intensity and short duration may occur during breaking of waves on coastal structures, slamming of ships, landing of seaplanes, and water entry of naval projectiles with flat nose. The phenomenon of shock pressures resulting from the impact between a solid and a liquid can better be described as a water hammer phenomenon...
