At Southampton University, the engineering properties and characteristics of beaver dams are being investigated to assess their role in natural river systems, and to develop nature-based solutions for river restoration. In this talk, we are going to look at beaver dams from the engineer’s point of view. This includes the analysis of their strength and construction methods allowing nature-based solutions for appropriate streams to be designed.
