Personal

Prof. Dr. Jan M. van Noortwijk is a senior adviser in Risk and Safety at HKV Consultants, Lelystad, The Netherlands, and a part-time professor in 'Mathematical Aspects of Risk Analysis' at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science of Delft University of Technology. As part of the international Master of Science programme 'Risk and Environmental Modelling', he gives a yearly course on 'Sustainability Modelling'.

He has experience with consulting civil and telecommunication engineers in the following areas: maintenance optimisation, life-cycle costing, risk analysis, classical and Bayesian statistics, uncertainty analysis, expert opinion, and process planning. He has published over 60 papers in scientific journals, books and conference proceedings, and is currently supervising 3 PhD students. Since 2000, he is also head of the Risk & Safety group of HKV Consultants in Lelystad.

In his consultancy and research work, Jan van Noortwijk developed mathematical models for optimising the maintenance of structures. He carried out case studies on the maintenance of dunes (sand nourishment), dikes (heightening), berm breakwaters (inspection), bridges (replacement), coatings protecting steel (lifetime extension), and special water-retaining structures (one of which was the Eastern-Scheldt barrier). He has performed various uncertainty analyses, including flood damage reduction along the river Meuse and river management of the Rhine branches. He gained experience in structural reliability, amongst others in determining probabilities of dike failure and flooding.
