Building with Nature: Common cordgrass and grassweed help dikes

Vegetated foreshores can strongly reduce wave loads on coastal dikes, meaning these dikes may not have to be built so high. On Wednesday 27 March, Vincent Vuik will be awarded his PhD at TU Delft for his work on this subject.

Poster Presentation Event Hydraulic Engineering

You are all invited to this year’s first Poster Presentation Event of the Hydraulic Engineering department. This is a great opportunity for PhDs and Postdocs to get to know each other, share your work and learn about possible research connections. For Master students this is a good chance to learn a bit on what research is being done in our department, especially if you are interested in pursuing a research career yourself or if you are looking for a graduation topic! Supervisors and other HE-staff are also more than welcome.
