Dam breach has catastrophic consequences for human lives and economy. In previous studies, empirical models are often, to a limited extent, due to the inadequacy of historical dam breach events. Physical models, which focus on simulating human behavior during floods, are not suitable for fast analysis of a large number of dams due to the...

The Netherlands has just finished implementing the Room for the Rivers program along the Rhine and Meuse Rivers in response to increasing river discharges. Recently, making more room for the river is, however, being challenged for future application because the flood defenses are assessed to be too weak and will need reinforcement anyway. To be...

All Eurocodes are currently under a critical review, while the work for a second generation of codes are about to start in 2015. For the geotechnical design EN 1997-1 is facing high demands for harmonization and simplification of the present code. The paper presents some proposals for improving the code regarding ultimate limit state (ULS)...

Slope instability and landslides can be catastrophic events often leading to loss of life and property. To assess the risks of slope failures, it is often desired that the dynamic process of slope failure can be simulated. This paper proposes a Granular Contact Dynamics (GCD) approach based on variational principles and implicit time integration...

In the Netherlands, USA and other countries methods for the analysis of loss of life and evacuation associated with flooding are used in flood risk management. This paper compares the methods from the US and Netherlands in this field and considers both methodological principles as well as the outcomes for various case studies. Similarities and...

In the European Journal of Transport and Infrastructure Research (EJTIR) Timmermans (2010) discussed the suitability of Prospect Theory for travel behaviour research. In that article appeared an assertion, about the explanatory performance of Prospect Theory with respect to choices in the TV game ‘Deal or no Deal’, which was not true. A thorough...

For a special issue of this journal Timmermans (2010) was asked to make critical comments on the suitability of Prospect Theory for travel behaviour research. His article offers a comprehensive overview of all kinds of criticism that one might encounter in the social sciences. When browsing through it during the preparation of an article about...

Over time, humankind’s lifestyle became increasingly dependent on finite resources. It follows that such a system is unable to sustain itself indefinitely. Several studies show that in the near future the climate may radically change and oil production will peak. Changes in the natural environment will possibly be so overwhelming that man has to...

This book presents the investigation of different architectures of integrating hydrological knowledge and models with data-driven models for the purpose of hydrological flow forecasting. The models resulting from such integration are referred to as hybrid models. The book addresses the following topics: A classification of different hybrid...

Van Mierlo, T. (author)
This document can be considered as a kind of “cookbook” for preparing flood maps. The “cookbook” was made in the framework of the PPA04/SK/8/13 project entitled “Determination of inundation area”. The project focussed on the transfer of knowledge in the field of preparing flood maps as required in the Slovak Water Act and resorts under the EVD....

The objective of this Masters thesis report is to review and analyse the current published and unpublished knowledge on the methods to valuate the intangible losses associated with both environmental and social/health impacts of coastal and estuarial floods, including the techniques for Cost- Benefit-Analysis, Multi-Criteria-Analysis, and Life...

The purpose of the Floris Project The government considers it important that the public has a better understanding of the probability of their area being hit by a flood. The government also wants to have a clear view of the relatively weaker areas in flood protection. Other experts have, moreover, indicated that the protection against flooding...
