Feed-Back on Five Years of Industrialization of Erosion Tests in Europe

Erosion mechanisms have long been known to be the main cause of breaches in earthen hydraulic structures, like embankment dams and/or dykes (Foster et al., 2000). Yet, the way the level of risk to this pathology was up to recently assessed was, in practise, limited to standard identifications

Possibilities of Balance Island for salt intrusion reduction in Mekong delta

Study needs: Needs for salt water reduction. Location, size, shape of islands for the location of river mouths. Measures for design and construction. Effects of island (economic, environmental, social…)

The Thermal Monitoring Method – A Quality Change in the Monitoring of Seepage and Erosion Processes in Dikes and Earth Dams

Summary: The thermal method for monitoring seepage and erosion processes qualitatively changed the monitoring of earth hydraulic structures in the scope of the detection and analysis of seepage and erosion processes

Living with flood in the Mekong delta, Vietnam

The rich, the fairly rich and the average farmers are better prepared to deal with flood than the poor farmers. Rich farmer more aware offood, the average and poor farmers prepare more on fishing tools and boats.

Balance Island

Balance Island’s primary function is decreasing the salt-intrusion in the Haringvliet. This is achieved by creating a gradual transition from salt to fresh water, while simultaneously conserving the dynamic nature of a living delta. By reducing the salt-intrusion, it isexpected that the ‘Kierbesluit’ can be operated more effectively

Laos is Ignoring Significant Concerns of its Neighbours on Mekong Dams

The charade over whether to proceed with Don Sahong Dam, the second Mekong mainstream hydropower project near the Laotian-Cambodian border, will soon reach a defining moment.

Evaluation and comparing of faced symetrical hard-fill dams (FSHD) and concrete faced rock-fill dams (CFRD)

In the studies Stage of dam projects, determination of appropriate dam site and dam type is the first and important step of dam projects design; because determination of appropriate location of dam site and dam type is very important technically and economically

Rooting of trees in earth dikes: risks and management solutions

Dikes offer favorable conditions for tree growth and vegetation provides many ecological and social services on these artificial sites. But woody vegetation induces several risks which are not compatible with dike safety

Erosion control in Vietnam using Japanese traditional river engineering

Riverbank erosion is one of the most severe problems in the rural area of Vietnam. JICA has been supporting to protect riverside areas using Japanese traditional river engineering since 2010. In this paper, we focus on two pilot sites, Kim Ngoc Village on Tha Trach River in Hue Province
