Managing risks from flood or coastal defence deterioration, damage and breach whilst avoiding unnecessary expenditure on physical interventions is a considerable challenge. It requires the understanding of a wide range of structure types and physical settings and working with a broad range of stakeholders. A key element is understanding the range of potential failure processes and carrying out management assessments.
HR Wallingford has helped to develop guidance documents for infrastructure asset management and the design of flood and coastal assets, including the International Levee Handbook and the Rock Manual. We have also been involved in the development of new assessment and inspection tools and techniques for infrastructure asset management. This course makes this information available to interested practitioners.
Those involved in the management and modification of above ground assets including engineers and managers from flood risk management, operating authorities, riparian and coastal landowners with flood and coastal defences and channels.
