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...

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...

Flooding not only induces a risk which is related to direct loss of life for humans, animals and plants. During flooding, toxicants which are normally stored or otherwise unavailable might be released. The spreading of these pollutants during the flooding or, often more important, the persistent presence of toxicants in the soil or sediment...

This report describes the flood defence structures of the pilot site River Schelde Estuary 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...

An effective and reliable system of flood forecasting and warning dissemination should be set up to inform, at respective level, authorities responsible for flood defence and citizens in threatened areas. Classical and new media such as sirens, formal warnings, state and private broadcasting services, satellite-based communication system, alarm...

This study has re-analysed data from earlier UK studies rather than collecting new survey data. The results help us to further understand the impacts of flooding, residents’ preparedness, vulnerability and resilience related to flood events, the driving forces of human behaviour before, during, and after floods. The results also allow lessons to...

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 aims to provide a comprehensive reference of flood inundation models for the flood manager. We begin by describing the processes important for flood propagation, the equations for modelling these processes, the simplifications and assumptions. Examples of each type of model are given, the limits and capabilities of each model or...

The aim of this report is to document the output of the three workshops and the questionnaire. The results of the Flood risk analysis has been reported in another Floodsite report: De Bruijn et al., 2008. For a complete description of the Schelde pilot study reference is made to Chapter 8 of the FLOODsite book on pilot sites (Schanze, in prep.).

Uncertainties are introduced in probabilistic risk analysis when we deal with parameters that are not deterministic (exactly known) but that are unknown instead, hence uncertain. This report describes how uncertainties influence the reliability of flood defence systems. The purpose of the study is to identify all uncertainties that influence the...

In the course of the present work, it was investigated, what a hydrological situation would be created in the catchment area of the Tisza River by the occurrence of certain meteorological and hydrological scenarios, having real chances to happen.

This report presents the progress in the implementation of the Communication and Dissemination (C&D) Plan within FLOODsite. Section 2 reports on dissemination, with special attention to the project website and the tasks under Theme 5: Task 29 (text-based dissemination), Task 30 (web-based dissemination) and Task 31 (face-to-face, i.e. mainly...

The objective of this report is a pilot study application of general vulnerability analysis techniques developed in FLOODsite sub-theme 1.3, in one of the flood cells to identify the effectiveness of flood management strategies. Chapter 1 describes the preconditions of the work, Chapter 2, based on the results of the analysis of the...

The research output describes the results of – analysis of factors of river capacity problems along the Middle-Tisza section, – scenario analysis of intervention options to raise the flood conveyance capacity of the flood bed, – scenario analysis of partial floodplain reactivation with controlled inundation. Individual and combined effects of...

Inventory of heavy metals in the sediments of the Tisza was done. It showed accumulation of heavy metals and that the load moves downstream just like a flood wave. Simulating further pollution events showed that the agricultural threshold values might be exceeded threatening the agricultural production.

The structure of the report is articulated into three major Parts. The first Part is focused on the structure of the flash flood observational system, which includes the Hydrometeorological observatories and the methodology for post event survey. A subsection is devoted to the analysis of the resolution requirements for flash flood modelling....
