Eemdijk test: dike with sheet piles has collapsed (in Dutch)!

The test dike with sheet piles collapsed on March 17 around 4 pm. The results of this trial will be used by all dike workers in the Netherlands for years to come. They can lead to a tightening of current calculation methods, so that lighter sheet piles can be used in dikes. That saves steel and therefore money. The next step is now: to start analyzing the data obtained through intensive monitoring in the dyke and on the sheet piles.

Joint HWBP and All-Risk effort to make maximum use of the results of the sheet pile test in Eemdijk

The paths of Matthijs Kok (program leader of All-Risk), Arny Lengkeek (advisor geotechnical engineering with 20 years of experience and PhD student in All-Risk at TU Delft) and Meindert Van (user in All-Risk and employed by Deltares) were joint by their interest into a sharper design of steel sheet piles for dike reinforcement. This blog reflects how the research into a large test data started, including some recommendations for future studies based on an informal talk between the three.

NCR Lecture: A system perspective on flood defence reinforcement projects

Wouter Jan Klerk talked on the NCR December's lecture about the Dutch flood probability standards, and how he works to optimise the way we reach our risk-based target levels. In the dike reinforcement Streefkerk-Ameide-Fort Everdingen a method was developed and applied to optimize flood defence investments at a system level.

Reflection: Data-driven dike enforcements - Constructive feedback from new and historical sources

The technical assessment of dike reinforcement projects in the Netherlands is flooded with data. Before, during and after dike reinforcements, a lot of data is collected and stored. This webinar attempts to bridge the gap between conventional and new data sources by presenting new methods for improving dike safety through data and discussing the general use of different data sources.

Reflection: Foreshores - useful for manageable flood safety or just beautiful nature?

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, salt marshes were mainly created for agriculture in the North of the Netherlands. More recently, we have reconsidered the value of these vegetated foreshores for flood safety.

Reflection: Risk-based inspection and interactions between failure mechanisms

Safety standards of flood defences are based on probabilities of flooding. Using a variety of failure models and statistical methods, we try to assess these probabilities as good as possible, in order to take effective measures for flood risk reduction. The question is how well we actually have insight into the flooding probability, and whether we take all relevant factors into account.

Reflection: Macro stability - better parameters or models or do we need to reinforce the dikes?

Macro instability of the inner slope is an important failure mechanism that has a large influence on the costs of dike reinforcements and their impacts on the landscape. There are various uncertainties considering the strength parameters and models. There seem to be various options when a dike does not meet the standards: better parameter estimation, better models, or realize a conservative and expansive reinforcement. Which options could we explore to deal with macro instability in an efficient manner?

Modelling the waves forces on innovative covers for dikes

We developed a numerical model to investigate the usage of Grassblocks, which are placed underneath the grass cover to protect the dike against the wave forces once the grass is eroded.
