      Flood risk assessment studies require information about direct damages that can be summarised through the expected annual damage (EAD). The discharge-damage curve for a given location is required to estimate EAD. The ...
    • Effect of sea level rise on the overtopping of English coastal defences 

      Hames, Dominic; Gouldby, Ben (2021)
      With a rise in sea levels, there is a consequent increase in the risk to coastal communities of the severity and magnitude of flood events. However these increased risks are not spatially consistent, and the type and ...
    • Effectiveness of flood retention basins under hydrologic uncertainty 

      Pol, Joost; Barneveld, Hermjan; Schielen, Ralph; Rongen, Guus; Stenfert, Joost (2021)
      Flood retention basins are widely applied to improve flood safety. The effectiveness of such basins is more sensitive for (hydrologic) uncertainties compared to other flood protection measures. This paper shows how uncertainty ...
    • Enhancing the resilience of levee systems through methodological developments 

      Igigabel, Marc; Diab, Youssef; Yates , Marissa (2021)
      The resilience of levee systems is intuitively associated with physical and technical measures applied to aide in the recovery or adaptation after a destructive event. However, facing a hazard whose characteristics are ...
    • Evaluating past and future flood risk reduction in the Rhine river basin 

      Schmid-Breton, Adrian; Schulte-Kellinghaus, Nikola (2021)
      To evaluate the effects of implemented or planned flood risk management measures on risk and damage reduction, the International Commission for the Protection of the Rhine (ICPR) has developed a method and a specific tool ...
    • Examining the Operational Aspect of Pedestrian Evacuation Modelling; A case study of Ras-Baalbek flash floods–Lebanon. 

      Sarkissian, Rita Der; Abdallah, Chadi; Zaninetti, Jean-Marc; Nedjai, Rachid (2021)
      A number of evacuation models exist in literature, but investigations of their operational aspects and efficient implementation are rare. The purpose of this paper is to critically assess the operational aspect of pedestrian ...
    • Existing levee system economic evaluation methodology 

      Durand, Edouard; Deniaud, Yann; Patouillard, Sébastien (2021)
      In France but also in other countries, levee system network are mostly composed of old levees, modified and reinforced during the past. In France, these systems, as road network, are considered as properties and financially ...
