Morris, M. (author)
During the IMPACT Project a number of large scale field tests were undertaken in Norway to collect data, including extensive video footage, recording the physical processes that occured during the initiation and growth of breach through the test embankments. The video footage has been carefully analysed and key processes identified, to support...

This report is Deliverable 18-2 which describes the conceptual, methodological and technological frameworks and how these are implemented for three pilot sites - the Thames, Schelde and Elbe - through prototype decision or ‘discussion’ support tools. The report describes the generic interactions between all relevant factors that drive and...

This document provides the generic principles of communication and dissemination from FLOODsite that can be transferred to other research projects. This document has been developed as a public version from the third edition of the FLOODsite C&D Plan (T28-05-02) without detail on the individual actions on task leaders during the project.

The purpose of this report is to identify messages from the FLOODsite pilot studies that might be helpful to Policy makers who are responsible for the implementation of the EC Floods Directive. The main requirement identified in this review is the need to develop guidance for methods to implement the Floods Directive based on the results of the...

Physical model tests were undertaken at HR Wallingford to address gaps in the knowledge of the failure process of shingle barrier beaches. During these tests, numerous factors were considered such as sediment characteristics, the type of waves (storm or swell), and beach crest geometry (height, width, back slope). This technical note summarises...

This report provides an overview of the technical work undertaken by the partners under FLOODsite Task 6. The research in Task 6 addresses breach initiation and growth. Research was undertaken to (i) investigate and develop preliminary models for predicting wave induced breach initiation (ii) investigate soil processes, review and refine the HR...

This report provides an overview of the state of the art with regards to embankment breach initiation and formation processes. Basic breach formation processes are explained, including a review of commonly held misconceptions. The different stages of breach initiation and formation are also explained, along with the varying needs of different...

The IMPACT Project (www.impact-project.net) provided valuable data on breach formation processes. Five large scale field tests were performed in Norway, and a further 22 laboratory tests were performed in the UK. A review of this data has been undertaken to support breach model testing and development under Task 6.

Erosion of surface vegetation of fluvial and coastal embankments is the first step in the breach initiation process for an embankment. Detailed knowledge of the driving forces, factors and erosion mechanisms is required to understand and manage the failure risk. Past and present research on the erosion of surface vegetation has been reviewed and...

The aim of this research was to investigate the influence of holes in the grass turf on the failure mechanisms and reliability analysis of dikes. The shape of the holes is either caused by a foreign object, a superficial void in the grass turf or a larger hole caused by for example animal burrowing or vandalism.

The report provides a summary of the work that has been carried out in Task 17 under Theme 2 of the EC research project FLOODsite that focused on evacuation modelling and traffic management related to flood events. When flooding of populated areas occurs or is likely a management system for the road network in and around the flood prone areas is...

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...
