 Module consists of the study units
Module 5, Safety and Risk in Deltas, consists of several module parts, every part has its own learning objectives. The Module overview is given below:

 Name module element Code 1.Vector Calculus 202001226 2.Fluid Mechanics 2 202000066 3.Soil Mechanics 202000065 4.Water Management 202000067 5. Project Flood Risk 202000068 6. Introduction to programming in engineering using Python 2 202200069 - Matlab (academic year 21/22) 202000069

The python-version of module element 6 is the default one; the matlab version is only optional for students that did matlab as part of CE module 2, and will have a separate Canvas page.

 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } Learning goals: At the end of the module the student …. is knowledgeable on the risk-based approach of flood safety and related Dutch policy and can operationalize it in quantitative assessment, has insight in extreme events, in hydrological and hydraulic processes in water systems, and is able to mathematically describe them, is knowledgeable on drought problems and able to describe this quantitatively, has insight in soil mechanics and stability of protective infrastructure, and is able to represent this in mathematical models, is competent in designing and implementing analytical and numerical mathematical simulation models on various themes related to flood safety, and in generating quantitative statements, including statements on accuracy, is competent in working with spatial descriptions in mathematical physics in integral and differential equations Content description: The module Safety and risk in deltas shows how flood safety is defined at conceptual, technical and policy levels. In the module, students learn how probabilities and impacts of extreme events combine into risks, and how these concepts are quantified. In doing so, students acquire knowledge on relevant technical characteristics and descriptions of protective infrastructure and failure mechanisms. Additionally, the students gain knowledge on flood safety strategies in policy and on the history and organisation of Dutch water management.
Assumed previous knowledge
 Fluid Mechanics 1, Project Blue Nile, and Introduction to programming in engineering using Python (CE Module 2) (or Matlab as part of CE module 2 for students doing Matlab in this module) and first year’s mathematics.Required knowledge for fluid mechanics concerns chapters 1-3 of the book used (Fox et al.).Required knowledge for project flood safety concerns modelling and programming skills.
