Short summary
Flood defences, such as levees, emergency storage basins or storm surge barriers, can be designed as multiple lines of defence. If each line of defence has a number of possible levels, the total number of possible system configurations can be large. This paper presents an approach that is able to find an optimal configuration including future adaptations of such a flood defence system, based on an economic cost–benefit analysis.
