Designing for Residual Floodingby Lewis A. Smith, US Army Corps of Engineers, Washington, DC, USA,
Abstract: Flood control projects should incorporate designs and responses for flooding of the protected areas due to exceedance, overtopping, or failure of the features. Design strategies for levees, channels, pump stations, diversions, dams, etc. , which minimize residual flooding impacts are discussed. All of these concerns draw upon the hydraulic engineer to quantify and graphically portray the hydrology and hydraulics in many and varied aspects for humans to respond in beneficial ways to residual flooding.
