Verhagen, H.J. (author)
In this paper, protection options for a high-value, industrial area along the coast of West Bengal (India) are investigated. The options are designed to protect against cyclone surges with a probability of 1/100 per year. Two alternatives are compared, a classical solution of a dike with a revetment and a solution with a mangrove belt in...

Since the industrial revolution we have become estranged from the sea. We became opponents instead of working together, and put up high walls to protect ourselves form the vagaries of an unpredictable sea. Somewhere along our path of progress, we lost our human connection to the sea. Before the sea became something we secluded, it was known for...

The climate goals for 2020, that multiple countries in the world signed, are coming closer. Like many other countries, the Netherlands has difficulties reaching their climate goal. A solution came from the Paris agreement in 2015, which sets new goals for 2030, and eventually for the long term in 2050. This time the Netherlands is eager to reach...

Dikes constructed from sand generally have a sand core and clay layers on the slopes and the crest to protect the core against erosion. In extreme hydraulic conditions, several failure mechanisms can lead to destruction of the clay layers, exposing the sand core to water. When water overtops the dike and the protective cover of the land-side...

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....

Dikes are part and parcel of the Netherlands. Down through the centuries they have played a role in every attempt to make this country inhabitable – in the reclamation of peatland and marshland, as coastal embankments and to enclose polders and flank rivers. This means they are often cultural heritage features of the highest order as they have...

The Afsluitdijk (Enclosure Dam) is a main dam that forms the fundamental part of the larger Zuiderzee Works that separates the Zuiderzee, a salt water inlet of the North Sea, and turning it into the fresh water lake of the IJsselmeer. It protects the central Netherlands from the effects of the North Sea. It was constructed between 1927 and 1933,...

A cobble sea defence appears to be an easy constructible protection, with relatively low total costs of ownership. Flume tests show that sand under such single layered constructions is stable. However, it is not exactly known how the hydraulic loading of a breaking wave is reducing in the filter. Two datasets containing pressure measurements in...

This study is part of a global study on the costs of adaptation to the effects of climate change. It adds information from three specific case studies (the Netherland, New Orleans and Vietnam) to the global study. The case study areas are comparable by type of coast; all are low-lying deltaic coastal areas. This study investigates the unit cost...

Coastal zones are highly vulnerable to climate change and its variability. Future projections of global climate change suggest that relative sea-level rise and increased storm frequencies could lead to significant increases in coastal flooding and shoreline erosion. Associated with this, it is likely that coastal hazards can have the potential...

As a low-lying and highly developed country, the Netherlands is continuously facing potential flooding disasters. That’s why we need strong safe water-retaining structures like sea and river-dikes. Moreover half of the country lies below mean high water level. Without dikes more than half of the country would be endangered by flooding. About 60%...

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...

Dit rapport bevat een beschrijving van een studie naar de grootte van de bres die in de Afsluitdijk zal kunnen ontstaan nadat deze dijk is doorgebroken en mar de resulterende verhoging van het IJsselmeerpeil. Het doel van de onderhavige studie is een veilige (dus maximale) voorspelling van de totale te verwachten bresgrootte in de Afsluitdijk na...

The question is often raised as to how long the next generations can continue to live and work in low-Iying Dutch Delta. The system of dikes, combined with the limited space for rivers, should guarantee our safety against inundation for the next hundred years, at least. But what do we do thereafter, wh en the sea level continues to rise,...
