Flood management measure: Dike reinforcement


Dike reinforcement describes the process of strengthening the dike by e.g. raising the dike height, widening of the dike crest, broadening the whole structure etc. This process tend to adjust the cross section of the dike to changed loads on the dike e.g. more extreme and more frequent occurring storm surges.

Co-benefits and impacts

Improved protective effect, improved durability of the dike

Definition (GR)

Η ενίσχυση του αναχώματος περιγράφει τη διαδικασία ενίσχυσης του αναχώματος μέσω π.χ. της αύξησης του ύψους του αναχώματος, της διαπλάτυνσης της κορυφογραμμής του αναχώματος, διευρύνοντας όλη την κατασκευή κλπ. Αυτή η διαδικασία τείνει να ρυθμίζει την διατομή του αναχώματος ανάλογα με τις διαφοροποιήσεις των φορτίων που δέχεται, π.χ. πιο ακραία και πιο συχνά καιρικά φαινόμενα.

Co-benefits and impacts (GR)

Βελτίωσης της αποτελεσματικότητας προστασίας και αντοχής του αναχώματος.
