Introduction Adaptation to climate change is one of the main concerns for cities in deltaic areas. For a country such as the Netherlands where two thirds of the land are located under sea level, reliability of the flood defence system is a top priority. Flood defences are exposed to different deterioration processes (also known as failure mechanisms) which might compromise the water retaining capacity during a flood event. In the state of the art of safety assessment for flood defences, a… CONTINUE READING
