    • The four components to combine flood protection with other functions 

      Marijnissen, Richard J.C.; Kok, Matthijs; Kroeze, Carolien; Loon-Steensma, Jantsje M. van (2021)
      Multifunctional flood defence systems combine flood defence functions with elements in the flood protection zone that fulfil other functions like nature, housing or agriculture. The wide range in possible combinations of ...
    • The new French regulation on flood protection works: consequences on risk management 

      Tourment, Rémy; Beullac, Bruno; Deniaud, Yann; Ledoux, Patrick; Leseur, Frédéric; Mallet, Thibaut; Patouillard, Sébastien (2021)
      Following recent catastrophic floods, France issued in 2007 a first regulation on the safety of dams and levees. In 2014 a new competence has been attributed to local authorities: the management of aquatic environments and ...
    • The potential of reservoirs for both flood control and irrigation in the Sebou River (Morocco) 

      Benchbani, Ikram; Sebari, Karima; Zemzami, Mahmoud; Laabdi, Younes (2021)
      Protecting the population and property against floods is one of the Moroccan National Water Plan priorities. Indeed, based on the National Flood Protection Plan established in 2002 and updated in 2017, 1,032 vulnerable ...
    • The use of historic flood events to reduce uncertainty in future flood frequency predictions: a bootstrap method 

      Bomers, Anouk; Schielen, Ralph M. J.; Hulscher, Suzanne, J. M. H. (2021)
      Flood frequency relations are generally highly uncertain for large return times due to the relatively short data set of annual maximum discharges. This extrapolation uncertainty can be decreased by extending the data set ...
    • The Vulnerability of Damaged River and Lake Dikes for Wave Overtopping 

      Bergeijk, Vera M. van; Verdonk, Vincent A.; Warmink, Jord J.; Hulscher, Suzanne J. M. H. (2021)
      Wave overtopping results in erosion of grass-covered flood defenses which can result in a dike breach. Damages to the dike cover decrease the cover strength and simultaneously increase the hydraulic load on the dike cover. ...
    • The “Flood Damage Models” repository 

      Bombelli, Irene; Molinari, Daniela; Asaridis, Panagiotis; Ballio, Francesco (2021)
      Flood damage assessment is a quite recent topic in flood risk management, nevertheless, several tools are now available for flood damage estimation which are characterised by different levels of robustness and reliability, ...
    • Uncertainty estimate of flood hazard for an extreme flood 

      Paquier, André (2021)
      Hydrodynamic models are usually calibrated from historical events observations and then used for estimating the flood hazard for more extreme floods. In such a case, the uncertainty related to the calibration process is ...
    • Understanding flood vulnerability of buildings in US: A perspective through claims data 

      Vishnu, Navya; Wojtkiewicz, Raulina; Ramanathan, Karthik (2021)
      The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is the largest provider of flood insurance to residential homes and small businesses in the United States for the last 50 years. This study leverages 40 years of data from the ...
