Toolkit Item & Description Topic Fact Sheet Research and Relevance to Practice
BRES
The TUD breach model predicts breach growth through cohesive and non-cohesive materials.
Fact Sheet - Breach initiation and growth, Predictive models
Task 6
Case specific indicator selection tool
A web based information tool enables the user to select a case specific indicator set for measuring the intended and unintended effects of flood risk management measures and indicators.
