Demonstrator of Self-erecting Flood Barrier– An Innovative New System For Flood Protection
Recent climate change scenarios predict an increasing number of intense and heavy rainfall events which intense the need of self-erecting flood protection systems. Within the Faculty of Civil Engineering at University of Kaiserslautern, scientists from construction engineering and flood risk management developed a new self-erecting flood barrier using newly developed materials like Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC).
