This report concerns the analysis of flow/discharge measurements obtained from a set of 441 “rigid breach” models constructed between 22/07/1996 and 10/12/1998 at the Agricultural Research Service of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in Stillwater, Oklahoma, US, by G.J. Hanson and colleagues. Each model consisted of a rigid...

Coastal dikes are used as defence structures against flooding in lowland areas and where high tidal ranges occur. The development of a breach induced by wave overtopping has been one of the most frequent causes of dike failure and it is closely related both to the dynamics of a protected coast and to the flood risk assessment and management. At...

This report addresses the preparation and performance of laboratory tests on a the erodibility of clay cover with and without grass, subjected to impact pressures generated by controlled falling water mass Three types of clay, representing different erosion resistances as well as grass cover of moderate quality have been used in order to gain...

This report provides an analysis of flood defence asset failure modes, structured acccording to asset and loading type. Failure mode information for each asset is presented in a common format and structured for use within reliability analysis models. The intention is that this document forms a central store of agreed failure mechanisms for flood...

More than 500,000 km of embankment are used in Europe for transport and flood defence, representing a € 1bn infrastructure asset base, which supports and protects the economy of Europe (e.g. property worth some € 2,000 bn is protected from flooding.) Presently the state and performance of these embankments can only be investigated visually or by...

Failure of natural and man-made earth structures is an important environmental hazard in many climatic conditions with significant socio-economic impact. Failures usually appear as sudden catastrophic events. Actually they are triggered by much slower processes of a progressive nature, occurring within the earth mass without any visible external...

Results showed that the existing model on erosion of clay with water-filled cracks (Führböter’s theory) which only considers cohesion as the soil strength is only applicable for certain conditions. The model should consider other resistant forces such as soil weight and pore pressures. From the tests on clay without water-filled cracks, it...

This report describes the flood defence structures of the pilot site ‘German Bight Coast’ and the overall probability of failure of all flood defences in the area. First, the flood prone area is briefly described as follows: ? the flood prone area ? the failures observed in the past ? an overview of all defence structures ? the flood defence...
