Field trial of a demountable flood defence system between urban structures

Demountable flood defences have a part to play in flood risk management, particularly where permanent defences are considered impractical or where the sighting of fixed barriers is visually obtrusive.



Planning, design and construction of a demountable system require careful consideration and four key areas have been singled out for consideration: 1) justification, 2) design, 3) approvals and 4) construction, installation and whole life management.
