The main repositories with relevant reports are:
- TU Delft Research repository - contains all research reports (Dissertations, internal and external research reports and many other publication) of TU Delft and other organisations. It contains a collection with hydraulic engineering reports.
- TU Delft Education repository - contains reports written by students (BSc and MSc theses, multidisciplinary project reports).
- TU Delft Cultural Heritage repository - contains historical documents (like old books series from the Architecture faculty, drawings form chemical processes, colonial architecture). This repository is still under development; later also the TU Delft image gallery and old maps will be included
- Advanced help to search the TU Delft repository
- Trésor der Hollandsche Waterbouw - contains full-text scans of old Dutch Hydraulic Engineering publications
- Hydrotheek - contains mainly Dutch reports on water issues, focus on water management and water quality. This repository is maintained by Wageningen University on behalf of STOWA
- Digital library of the US Army Corps of Engineers:

Publications and reports of the department of
These lists contain both publications of all sections of the department:
This page gives an overview of all Ph.D.-theses issues by the department. A search can be performed by promotor, by year or by promovendus. (Note: via this link you will also get a list of professors of our department)
This page gives an overview of all recent M.Sc.-theses (from 1996 onwards) by students of the department. A full list of theses before 1996 is available; the older theses are available on request.
Old versions of lecture notes. For the presently used notes is referred to Blackboard)
- Master Project Reports
During the master study a group of 4 - 6 students has to solve a practical (and real) problem for a client in two months. The work should start with a problem definition and end with a final consultancy report to the client. The students should use hands-on state-or-the art technology for their design. Some of these reports are placed in the repository. Many reports om a map can be found using the Geolocator.
on Hydraulic and Geotechnical Engineering (1985-present)
In the first years mainly research reports were published, in the later years the main focus was republishing Ph.D.-theses from this Department. The function of the paper version of the Communications was to disseminate information mainly to other libraries and research institutes. At this moment this series is mainly used to disseminate background information related to other publications (e.g. data reports with data underlying journal papers and Ph.D. theses).

Repository of Hydraulic Engineering reports (DIgitale Rapporten Kast, DiRK-Hydro) - (info for advanced use)This repository contains many reports on hydraulic engineering, not issued by TU Delft. The reports are mainly issued by or on behalf of Rijkswaterstaat, other public authorities or issued in the framework of European projects. The repository can be accessed via the scientific report section of https://repository.tudelft.nl.
Direct access is possible via

Full text versions of reports of some European projects in hydraulic Engineering:
A European Interreg project (2004-2008; Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, UK)) with focus on multifunctional use of coastal protection, with a special focus on the mitigation of sea level rise. The project studies the transition from a single line of sea defence to a multifunctional zone.
FLOODsite is an “Integrated Project” in the Global Change and Ecosystems priority of the Sixth Framework Programme of the European Commission. It commenced in 2004 and runs to 2009. The FLOODsite consortium includes 37 of Europe’s leading institutes and universities and the project involves managers, researchers and practitioners from a range of government, commercial and research organisations, specialising in aspects of flood risk management.
