This thesis introduces a fragility-based framework in order to perform a custom assessment of the complex Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier. By applying a conditional approach to loading parameters, the statistical dependency between failure mechanisms and structure elements can be described separately for the strength and loading part of the...

Subsea pipeline are extensively used for the transport of hydrocarbons from offshore wells, to platforms, pump stations and to onshore facilities. Because the installation of pipelines is time consuming it is responsible for a significant amount of the total costs of a project. Thus the workability of the installation is of great importance.When...

Pipe laying projects are getting more challenging due to increasing operational depth of pipeline. The increasing depth requires more of the strength and load bearing capability of the pipeline and its girth welds. The assessment method used for checking the integrity of flaws in girth welds is called Engineering Critical Assessment (ECA) and is...

The municipality of Amsterdam is facing the challenge to deal with uncertainties accompanied with the maintenance planning of maintenance activities on bridges. Long term asset planning (LTAP) has the goal to show the proposed expenditures, capital and operational expenditures (CAPEX and OPEX), for the long term to be able to build up a monetary...

All over the world rubble mound breakwaters are built to protect harbours, shorelines, and other vulnerable coastal areas against wave action and currents. Most of the designs for these structures use so called deterministic or semi-probabilistic design methods (level I). With these methods insight in the uncertainties, and consequently the...

It was unclear what level of reliability was provided by appliance of the Eurocode load models for fatigue due to train loads, meaning that it might be insufficient. Therefore, it was investigated what the provided reliability is, compared to what is should be. Within this report, the focus is solely on fatigue induced by bending moments on...

Typical for the Dutch landscape are the many polders, which are situated below sea level and below waters directly surrounding the polders. A visual separation between land and water is caused by the flood defences that protect the polders from flooding. In 2005, artist Paul Izeboud came with the idea to make a transparent flood defence, thereby...

The traditional Dutch way to deal with piping for river levees is the implementation of piping berms. The disadvantage of such a measure is the inland space required, especially in urban areas. Relief wells, on the other hand, require less or no inland space and therefore represent an attractive solution as mitigation measure against piping. The...

Multifunctional use of the flood defences is as old as the flood defences themselves. Historically infrastructure, housing and livestock are located on the flood defences. Over the years, the cities along the rivers became bigger and bigger. With the still increasing demand for spatial development it is inevitable to also start combining other...

Structural design of these marine facilities is not implicitly covered in EN1990 (European Norm), and the types of loads and load combinations that are to be considered are different from those for buildings and bridges, since they concern operational loadings from vessels berthing and mooring, and also loads from vessels moored acting...

Introduction The popularity of monitoring dikes with sensor techniques is rising. It is claimed that sensor techniques lead to significant cost savings and can predict an upcoming dike collapse. But a technical foundation to use the sensor monitoring information in flood safety assessment is lacking. This research investigates the contribution...

The fresh water supply will be more under pressure, due to the predicted effects of climate change in the Netherlands. More frequent salt water intrusion during the summer semester is caused by the joint occurrence of low river discharges and the expected sea level rise. The control of external salinity is necessary to guarantee a sufficient...

The environmental impacts caused by suspended sediments are an important issue in the environmental impact assessment (EIA) of dredging and reclamation projects. This thesis is restricted to provide insight into the emission of suspended sediment particles due to the release of return water. This water is used to pump dredged material to the...

Advanced plans were made by the Dutch government to extend the port of Rotterdam by means of the construction of a land reclamation in the North Sea, the Maasvlakte 2. Because no safety standards exist for the Maasvlakte 2, it is useful to determine an optimal design from an economic point of view by cost-benefit analysis. The economic optimal...

Het sluizencomplex Vlissingen is opgebouwd uit stalen damwandconstructies. In de afgelopen 45 jaar is er minimaal onderhoud gepleegd aan deze constructies. De provincie Zeeland was benieuwd naar de huidige staat en de te verwachten restlevensduur van het complex. Witteveen+Bos heeft vervolgens een uitgebreid onderzoek uitgevoerd, waarbij een...

De steeds groter wordende diepgang van zeeschepen vereist dat golfbrekers op grotere dieptes aangelegd moeten worden. De kosten van stortsteen golfbrekers op grote dieptes zijn aanzienlijk hoger dan op kleine dieptes. Verticale golfbrekers lijken een betere alternatief te zijn met betrekking tot de totale kosten prestatie, standaardisatie,...

Breakwaters differ from each other by their functions or their type. The most important function of breakwaters is to allow the ships to be loaded and unloaded in calm water conditions and to provide dock or quay facilities. Several types of breakwaters can be distinguished, depending on their operation and design. The most common breakwater...
