Design of Protection Works Against Torrent Floods explores the main features of the three leading types of protection works-torrent checkdams, sediment dams, and torrential dykes-to help readers learn how to design them. It is dedicated to technicians, engineers, and risk managers who are in charge of structural design and/or management. The book presents a technical and integrated overview of the design process, but also describes the different points that make these protection works so specific when compared with classical civil engineering works, such as buildings, bridges, and roads. In addition, this comprehensive resource emphasizes the main issues of structural and functional design, also offering the keys to dedicated and more specialized literature. Users will find a useful guide that provides a description of theoretical calculation methods that includes examples of observed failures. * Features a comparison of the three main types of protection works, torrent checkdams, sediment dams, and torrential dykes* Presents mathematical examples for practical guidance on a dedicated editor website* Provides worked examples of observed protection works failures
