The Challenge

One result of glob­al warm­ing and the asso­ci­at­ed cli­mate change is the clear increase in fre­quen­cy of extreme rain events since the turn of the mil­len­ni­um. The risk poten­tial for flood­ing has become more critical.

Most recent exam­ples of this phe­nom­e­non were the flood­ing on the Elbe and the Danube, which caused prop­er­ty dam­age in the range of mil­lions. A time­ly reac­tion to flood events, for exam­ple by con­struct­ing a sand­bag dam, is hard­ly pos­si­ble in the short time avail­able. Added to this, such mea­sures are cost­ly and time-consuming.

The Solution

With the HydroBeam Sto­plog Sys­tem Stein­hardt GmbH offers a high-end, mobile pro­tec­tion bar­ri­er to pro­vide quick and effec­tive secur­ing of large areas against flood­ing. The stan­dard­ised sys­tem is char­ac­terised by high flex­i­bil­i­ty and is easy and quick to erect and dismantle.

The upright HydroBeam sys­tem Type mHWS-90 is anchored into the ground by means of a robust sup­port con­struc­tion. One sto­plog unit of 1 m height and 3 m length rep­re­sents the equiv­a­lent of around 500 sand­bags. The pos­si­ble head heights and field lengths can be cal­cu­lat­ed with the aid of the dia­gram on the right. A spe­cial­ist engi­neer should be con­sult­ed to deter­mine ground seep­age and buoy­an­cy safe­ty, oth­er­wise addi­tion­al sheet piles and con­crete walls may become necessary.

Oth­er fac­tors to be tak­en into con­sid­er­a­tion are dynam­ic forces such as waves, lat­er­al cur­rents and flot­sam col­li­sion as laid down by the BWK, M3.
