Deltares Research on Infrastructure

In delta areas, more and more infrastructure is built on land and in the water. Building on or in the soft soil of deltas is not without risks. The same applies to structures on sea and river beds.
Deltares research focuses on reducing costs and risks when building in coastal regions, soft ground and at sea. Innovative solutions are designed to make existing infrastructure robust against the effects of climate change. Research topics are:

  • Coastal Developments
  • Coastal and River Structures
  • Roads and railways in delta area’s
  • Infrastructure for water and energy
  • Underground construction in urban areas
  • Ports and waterways
  • Offshore engineering
