Numerous structural failure incidents have occurred in the past years. It was found that current methods, such as NEN 2767, fall short in guaranteeing the structural safety of existing buildings. Although structural failure incidents infrequently result in casualties, there are also social and economic consequences that impact both building user...

Van Sickle Island, located in the Suisun Marsh in the San Francisco Bay Area, has experienced multiple levee breaches in the past. Due to the large social and economic implications of flooding, questions have arisen about whether the current management of the island is still feasible. This project, therefore, aimed to find the most financially...

The decarbonization of the energy system is driven by the electrification process and the expansion of variable renewable energy capacity. Green hydrogen, produced through electrolysis powered with renewable electricity, represents a major complementary vector that can support this transition. By enabling long-term storage, it addresses the...

This thesis examines the implementation of risk-based sewer asset management, with a specific focus on addressing the existing shortcomings in current practices. Notably, the neglect of sewer failure risks often leads to suboptimal allocation of resources. The primary aim of this research is to develop a comprehensible methodology for risk-based...

Sea level rise and land subsidence increasingly put more pressure on Dutch flood protections. Additional to regular dike reinforcements, new, more nature-based, solutions are considered, such as a double dike system (DDS). Such system, consisting of two parallel dikes in combination with an interdike area in the form of a salt marsh, offers the...

The efficacy of risk models and risk analyses critically hinges on sufficient model evaluation. Nevertheless, the usefulness for the intended purpose is rarely systematically assessed. Poor or even lacking model evaluation of the applied risk models and analyses also troubles the asset management of storm surge barriers in the Netherlands. In...

The executive leadership in corporate organizations is increasingly challenged with managing cyber-risks, as an important part of wider business risk management. Cyber-risks are complex, with the threat landscape evolving, including digital infrastructure issues such as trust in networked supply chains, and emerging technologies. Moreover,...

Increasing the use of non-motorized modes of transport, such as walking, is a worldwide objective aimed at improving the sustainability of cities. However, pedestrians may not choose to walk if the infrastructure fails to meet their needs or if they hold unfavourable perceptions regarding the built environment (BE). The current study aims to...

Walking is the cornerstone of active and sustainable transport. However, traffic safety concerns among pedestrians could reduce walking behaviour. Safety concerns are generally measured through risk perceptions. Unfortunately, a lack of theoretical development of risk perceptions in walking behaviour research has limited our capacity to identify...

Model Predictive Control (MPC) of combined sewer systems can reduce environmental degradation caused by uncontrolled overflows. However, practical uncertainties are often neglected when assessing the potential of MPC strategies. This paper aims to understand the risks associated with using a non-perfect internal MPC-model, real precipitation...

Natural gas pipeline construction is developing rapidly worldwide to meet the needs of international and domestic energy transportation. Meanwhile, leakage accidents occur to natural gas pipelines frequently due to mechanical failure, personal operation errors, etc., and induce huge economic property loss, environmental damages, and even...

This project is part of the larger REX-CO2 project, which assesses the re-usability of abandoned wells in reservoirs targeted for CCS operations. It comes as a necessity to also assess the abandoned wells that will not be re-purposed, by assessing the risk they pose in terms of allowing the stored CO2 to resurface across them, which is the focus...

Cloud datacenters underpin our increasingly digital society, serving stakeholders across industry, government, and academia. These stakeholders have come to expect reliable operation and high quality of service, yet demand low cost, high scalability, and corporate (environmental) responsibility. Datacenter operators are confronted frequently...

Recent large scale cyber security incidents such as the Equifax data breach, where the personal information of around 160 million Americans leaked, demonstrate the current risk of security vulnerabilities libraries which software projects depend on.<br/>The usage of libraries forms an integral part of modern software development and is a...

The problem-solving approach to public regulation places new demands on regulatory agencies in terms of risk analysis: every regulatory problem that is to be solved demands a new, unique analysis to find effective intervention strategies. Many risk analysis tools are available to regulators, however, to date agent-based modelling has not been...

Despite the severity and high frequency of cost overruns in construction projects, it is considered a rule rather than an exception. This phenomenon occurs when the initially estimated budget does not suffice the actual costs needed to realise the project. Uncertainty and bias challenge the ability to make cost estimates. Incorrect estimates of...

Natural hazards may rapidly lead to a massive domino chain in chemical industrial parks (CIPs). This work develops a high-efficiency and systematic analytical framework that is applicable to a broad range of uncertain and time-varying factors related to the evolution process of natural hazard-induced domino chain (NHDC). Specifically, the...

Flood prone areas are often protected against flooding by an extensive network of flood defenses. To ensure their structural integrity, these flood defenses are periodically assessed. Many levees have been functioning well for decades, and have survived several relatively high hydraulic loads within their lifetime. However, information on...

Autonomous ships have become a topic of interest for an increasing number of researchers over the last few years. Most of the research that is being performed focuses on autonomous navigation. An important driver for this research is the belief that autonomous navigation will increase safety at sea. In order to evaluate the possible safety...
