Hydro-economic evaluation of designs for flood protection projects


, : Hydro-economic evaluation of designs for flood protection projects. Wissenschaftliche Zeitschrift der Technischen Universitat Dresden 45(2): 79-84

A critical analysis is presented of current design strategies, namely the concept of probable maximum floods or that of defined recurrence intervals. It is demonstrated that this approach incurs a large degree of uncertainty with respect to both safety and economic efficiency of a planned project because this strategy only considers the probability of flood frequency generated from scarce data, and ignores the relatively sound information about the nature and amount of damage.
