Toelichting (Engels) The scope of this research is limited by the hazard of dike instability and associated flood risk of scour holes. A data-driven method for the flood risk assessment of scour holes has been developed and applied, as an example, to one scour hole. Next to the risk assessment of this case scour hole, risk mitigation measures are analysed for this particular scour hole. This research shows that the flood risk near scour holes can be quantified with the usage of open data and that the implementation of risk mitigation measures can be economically beneficial. The economic feasibility depends on the original probability of flooding, the magnitude of the consequences, the effectiveness in risk reduction and the total investment costs.
