n IMIESA - Flood control : storm water

Volume 34, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 0257-1978



This paper looks at causes of flooding that can be attributed to a lack of hydraulic capacity in storm-water systems arising from town planning schemes and engineering designs that perhaps did not anticipate the effects of storm events of greater severity than the design storm, or underestimated the forces at work under flood conditions. A common form of damage during storms is erosion. The paper looks at the identification of 'erosion fronts', how they propagate and what can be done to stop them.
