Flooded? Forget It!
Learn about the hydraulic design principles for low-water crossings and find out why you shouldn’t cross flooded roadways
Low-water crossings go by many names; whether you call them floodways, ford crossings, or Irish bridges, structures that are designed to overtop are not necessarily designed to be driven across while overtopping.
Join us for a presentation of hydraulic design principles for low-water crossings, including scour protection, closure criteria, embankment design, and energy dissipation. Our panel of experts will also present the latest research demonstrating what it takes to float a car. Find out why you shouldn’t cross flooded roadways and how engineers can better design crossings to make sure they are still intact when the flood recedes.
