Main project: Numerical and experimental modeling of breaching of earthen embankments
Funding: Assistant
Supervisor(s): Sandra Soares Frazao

Embankments failures can have devastating impacts. Therefore, proper risk assessment requires a

reliable description of the breaching process, flow hydrograph and downstream inundation. In

this project, medium and large‐scale experiments of breaching due to overtopping will be

conducted and monitored using digital imaging techniques. An existing numerical simulation tool

will be improved to represent the whole process, including the flow through the embankment.
