'De Slufter' is a nature conservation area located in the Northwest of the Dutch Wadden island Texel which is inundated with seawater during storm events. The landward side of De Slufter is a sand dike which is part of the primary coastal defence ring of the island. HHNK, which is responsible for the coastal safety of Texel, currently relocates...

Deployable morphing aircraft are gaining popularity in the academic and industrial world. Their deployability offer the possibility to be stored and takes less space. This is advantageous in volume limited applications like space explorations, where every cubic centimeter is important. Another field where this aircraft is increasingly used is...

Machine learning applications are increasingly being implemented in socio-technical safety-critical systems, but the safety of these applications is not well understood. This thesis used a mixed-method design and applied four methods to explore the field of machine learning and safety. With the results of these four methods, a framework was...

In order to perform a reassessment of existing structures or design new structures in a more efficient and economical way non-linear finite element (NLFE) models are used to take into account all non-linear behavior in reinforced concrete structures. The Model Code 2010 (fib, 2012) suggest several safety formats to perform non-linear finite...

This Thesis studies the safety assessment method for macro-stability of dikes with high foreshores. Currently, this method is a semi-probabilistic method, which does not take the presence of a foreshore into account. The research concludes that the presence of a foreshore has a significant influence on the failure probability with respect to...

The application of non-linear finite element analysis is important nowadays to simulate the real behavior of structure. A sort of non-linear finite element analysis with and without safety formats referring to Model Code 2010 is applied in this thesis, to study the FEM simulation of the shear capacity of reinforced concrete structure. A case...

With the implementation of new legal aspects for dune safety assessment in 2017, the current method, Duros+, is no longer feasible to represent the desired processes. This 1D deterministic, volume-balance model cannot simulate processes like inundation and overwash, which are crucial to fulfil the new requirements for dune safety assessment....

Inclusion of safety formats method in nonlinear finite element analysis of a structure is beneficial to realize
the safe and real behavior of structures. In addition, reliability analysis in combination with NLFEA results
and safety assessments provide an insight into consistency of the safety assessments recommendations related
to...

Oosterlo, P. (author)
In this thesis, a method was developed, with which the infragravity waves and morphological changes of a sandy foreshore are included in the calculation of the probability of dike failure due to wave overtopping. Constructing a natural foreshore in front of the dike can be an attractive and innovative method to decrease the failure probability....

Flow sliding of submerged slopes in front of dikes affects flood safety. The occurrence of flow sliding may result, sometimes with delay, in a failure mode and consequent flooding. The current safety assessment method for flow sliding does not consider the interaction between flow sliding and failure modes. Therefore it is unclear whether the...

The most densely populated and economical most valuable areas in The Netherlands lie below mean sea level. These areas are protected against the sea by a coastal dune system. The vital importance of this dune system is reflected in the extensive collection of Dutch legal regulations that ensure the safety level of the dunes. Current safety...
