Survey categories

We have used several monitoring and survey techniques to assess the levee condition, such as Topography & Surface Mapping, Sedimentological and geotechnical soil properties, Geophysical properties, Hydraulic and hydrologic properties and finally Biological properties.

BIM and 3D visualisation

This tool is the report BIM adoption in an Open Environment: a Framework for BIM use in Levee Management.

In this report you will find more information on: 

  1. Experiences with applying BIM to a levee
  2. Experiences with 3D-visualisation of a levee

Comparison of geotechnical and geophysical techniques

What: report GEO 18/111: Report on the Geotechnical Laboratory Testing

In this report you will find a comparison of different geotechnical and geophysical techniques. Among them are ERT, GPR / Drilling/CPT measurements that have been carried out in the Living Lab Hedwige-Prosperpolder in 2019 and 2020. 

Using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

What: report The Ground Penetrating Radar for inspecting levee upper layer in Polder2C's.

In this report you will find more information on using GPR for

  • scanning the levee conditions, mainly the upper layer of the levee
  • check the GPR inspection limit in laboratory conditions

Lab Assignment into Levee Construction

What: This lab assignment involves conducting physical and numerical experiments to gain insight into the properties and construction of levees. The assignment includes determining the properties of sand and gravel, building and testing a levee cross-section and simulating the seepage discharge of the built levee section using software. The objectives are to understand the construction and material use of levees, determine the flow profile and seepage discharge of a levee, and evaluate and discuss the results. 

Innovative tools 

What: This report is a short summary of all kinds of different techniques that were used during the project. The innovative tools and solutions mentioned concern a variety of topics, such as surveying techniques, monitoring and repairing. If you have any questions about the techniques or need for information please contact the corresponding author.
