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...

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...

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...

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...

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,...

This guide deals with the realisation and maintenance process for sea and lake dikes, dams, separation embankments and compartment dikes, in so far as they are primary flood defences. This guide is part of a coherent series of guides on flood defence (see table 1.1) and builds on the general TAW memorandum Gronslagen voor Waterkeren ...

The increased demand on reliable design methods for protective structures has resulted in the Netherlands in preparing a set of design guidelines for revetments of the sea-, and river-dikes, and for bank protection. These guidelines are intended for technicians and organizations directly involved in the design and management of protective...

Historical overview of hydraulic engineering in the Netherlands until 1960. The author wrote the main part of this book during the second world war. The author (1893-1959) advocated at that time strong improvement of the Dutch sea defences, but this was politically not accepted. For that he used the pseudonym "Dr. Cassandra". After 1953 he...
