IJkdijk foundation operates
a facility in the Netherlands
to test dikes and to develop sensor network technologies.
October 2009 the IJkdijk foundation studied the failure of a 100 meter long
test embankment in the macro stability experiment.

The visual inspection of dikes, embankments, other sea
defense structures and dunes remains a crucial aspect in maintaining the
structural integrity of these objects.
and experience with the long-term application of sensor-inspection techniques
is gained with the pilot LiveDijk-Eemshaven.
first phase the sensor based systems for dike
monitoring are installed (Dutch). In the second phase the dike is monitored and data are stored.

Flood Control 2015
Flood Control 2015 integrates aspects of advanced forecasting- and
decision-support systems: the dike, the decision-maker and their environment.
