This British Geotechnical Association lecture, held jointly with the UK chapter of the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS), will explore the significant contribution geosynthetics can make to all types of flood protection and mitigation measures.
Flooding is an unavoidable element of our planet’s complex weather system. Serious damage is caused when the water is stronger than the ground. The aim must be either to control the water or to increase the resistance against it.
Different problems result from flooding caused by rainfall and runoff, resulting in saturation of the ground, surface erosion and percolation of pore water, weakening man-made earth structures and natural ground, predominantly riversides, dikes, levees and dunes.
Structures to provide shelter from flooding, reliable stream bank stabilization and coastal flooding defense measures will be discussed.
