A clear overview of how the various topics of Polder2C’s are addressed in existing literature provides guidance towards fulfilling knowledge gaps.
Extensive literature review
An extensive literature review on Flood Defence and Emergency Response is expected to provide a yardstick to Polder2C’s partners and guide them in detailing their activities in the Living Lab.
We will perform an extensive literature review on technical aspects of levee failure and strength. This review includes examples from around the world with specific attention to possible twin sites in France and the UK. It must provide an overview on parameters governing the strength and managing regimes of managed realignment.
Also, the Dutch Corps of engineers will cooperate with the USACE, Belgium Defence and occasionally military partners from France and Britain to gain more knowledge on demolition and crisis management on flooding. All this information will be compared with the Polder2C’s project and set the scene for reproducing results on other sites around the world.
