Flood Risk

    By

    This ICE publication is the definitive practical handbook on design and maintenance of flood defences, providing a coherent and focused reference for best practice. With contributions from a number of experts in the field and the inclusion of real life case studies this book will be the first port of call for practising engineers working in the areas of flood risk management and drainage. Coverage includes the design of fluvial, coastal and urban flood defences, as well as guidance on relevant legislation, lessons learned from past disasters and means of improving the environment while managing flood risk. The intended audience is practising graduate to senior level engineers, hydrologists and project managers working on flood defence projects, mainly in consultancies but also in the Environment Agency and Local Authorities.
