The Influence of Infragravity Waves on the Safety of Coastal Defences: A Case Study of the Dutch Wadden Sea

Lashley, C. H., Jonkman, S. N., Van der Meer, J., Bricker, J. D., and Vuik, V - 01/11/2021 - All-Risk
A newly developed framework not to overestimate safety along the many coastlines around the world that have shallow foreshores (e.g. saltmarshes and mudflats). Considering the influence of very long waves, which are often neglected in flood risk assessments is important when calculating the likelihood of waves overtopping the dikes.

Human interventions in a bifurcating river system: Numerical investigation and uncertainty assessment

Gensen, M. R. A., Warmink, J. J., Huthoff, F., & Hulscher, S. J. M. H. - 05/10/2021 - All-Risk
For intervention design in a bifurcating river, it is important to consider the entire river system and explicitly account for a range of discharge conditions to avoid unwanted water level increases throughout the river system.

Formulating wave overtopping at vertical and sloping structures with shallow foreshores using deep-water wave characteristics

Lashley, C. H., Van der Meer, J., Bricker, J. D., Altomare, C., Suzuki, T., and Hirayama, K. - 31/08/2021 - All-Risk
Accurate estimates of wave height and period at the structure toe often proves difficult and requires the use of either physical modeling or high-resolution numerical wave models. Here, we follow Goda's method to establish an accurate prediction by directly incorporating the foreshore slope and the relative water depth at the structure toe.

Flood risk reduction by parallel flood defences

Marijnissen, R., Kok, M., Kroeze, C., & van Loon-Steensma, J. - 01/08/2021 - All-Risk
Double dikes should be assessed using the transmitted loads of parallel defences rather than the failure of individual defences. The case study of this parallel defence consists of a low dike landward of a tall dike at the coast that, although designed with multi-functional purpose via a culvert, has a negligible improvement in flood protection.

Multidecadal Analysis of an Engineered River System Reveals Challenges for Model-Based Design of Human Interventions

Berends KD, Gensen MRA, Warmink JJ, Hulscher SJMH - 14/07/2021 - RiverCare
Models predict water level decrease, but measurements are too uncertain for now. This reveals a challenge for validation model predictions of human intervention
