Natural fractures play a crucial role in many sustainable subsurface applications, particularly in reservoirs with low primary porosity and permeability. Therefore, fracture analysis has become a fundamental aspect of geosciences, often starting with fracture interpretation from borehole image logs. It has been widely recognized that...

Many countries rely on flood defence systems to prevent economic damage and loss-of-life due to catastrophic floods. Asset managers of flood defence systems need to cope with the consequences of structural degradation, and changing societal and environmental conditions, in order to satisfy performance requirements and optimize societal value of...

As Needham (2015) concluded based on researching 700 storm surge events: “tropical cyclone induced floods are among the world’s deadliest and destructive natural hazards”. Due to this growing threat, there is a growing need for evacuation policies in case of an impending cyclone, in order to reduce the negative effects of a cyclone. The...

Noordam, A.F. (author)
For decades, researchers try to model the subsoil as accurate as possible in order to make cost-efficient and safe geotechnical decisions. A troublesome aspect in modelling of the soil is to determine the heterogeneity within the soil, as this is usually associated with a great deal of uncertainty. Delft University of Technology used a recursive...

A method of combining 3D Kriging for geotechnical sampling schemes with an existing random field generator is presented and validated. Conditional random fields of soil heterogeneity are then linked with finite elements, within a Monte Carlo framework, to investigate optimum sampling locations and the cost-effective design of a slope. The...

The determination of slope stability for existing slopes is challenging, partly due to the spatial variability of soils. Reliability-based design can incorporate uncertainties and yield probabilities of slope failure. Field measurements can be utilised to constrain probabilistic analyses, thereby reducing uncertainties and generally reducing...
