ELASTOCOAST revetments are highly porous structures made of crushed stones which are durably and elastically bonded by Polyurethane (PU). To improve the understanding of the physical processes involved in the wave-structure-foundation interaction and to develop prediction formulae for both hydraulic performance and wave loading more than 75...

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...

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...

Sea dikes are of crucial importance in the defence systems of low-lying coastal areas in Germany as well as in other countries such as The Netherlands and Denmark. Breaches of sea dikes due to storm surges are regarded as the main cause of flood disasters, so that a reliable prediction of both breach initiation, breach formation and breach...

This report describes small-scaled experiments performed at Leichtweiß-Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources, Technical University Braunschweig (LWI). The experiments have been conducted to investigate the development of dike breaches in homogeneous sand dikes with and without a clay layer. The used scaling factor was 1:10.The...

Sea dikes are of crucial importance in the defence systems of low-lying coastal areas in countries such as Germany, The Netherlands or Denmark, etc. Breaches of sea dikes induced by storm surges are regarded as the main cause of coastal flood disasters. Therefore a reliable prediction of both initial conditions for the breach occurrence and the...

This report reviews previous investigations on hydraulic loading conditions for different types of flood defence structures such as sea dikes, dunes, beaches and seawalls. For each of these structures the physical processes involved are discussed in some detail and methods are given to either predict relevant input parameters for failure modes...

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...

CLASH is concentrating on investigations of wave overtopping for different structures in prototype and in laboratory. The model investigations have focussed on wave overtopping and the comparison of overtopping results from small-scale model tests and prototype measurements. Possible differences in the results from small-scale tests and...

Wave overtopping is one of the most important processes for the design of seadikes which was responsible for many severe dike failures in the past. Wave overtopping can not be avoided due to the random nature of the waves and the uncertainties associated with the determination of the design water level. The present design on wave overtopping is...

Der Zweck dieser Arbeit ist, die in der Praxis am häufigsten vorkommenden Belastungsformen von Bohlwerken zu untersuchen: Wie ist der Belastungsverteilung, wie sind die Einspannungsverhältnisse und wie können sie leicht und doch genügend genau rechnerisch erfasst werden? Alle Systeme lassen sich auf das erste, Belastung mit Einzelkraft,...
