According to loss experience losses caused by flooding can be significantly limited by preventive measures. In this context especially stationary protective measures have proved successful. Mobile protection systems can complement or replace stationary protection systems because of operational or areal constraints.
To establish appropriate protection measures the existing hazards must be identified and analyzed as well as the associated risks assessed. The relevant objectives, e. g. the height of protecting wall, are to be defined object-related and depending on the legal requirements and risk assessment.
The guideline “Demountable / Mobile flood protection systems” shows the available systems in the market and their features, and does a run-through the functional characteristics to be considered when choosing a system for mobile flood protection. Some advice for the selection of the type of system is given, based on previous operational experiences. Quality assurance measures required to the systems are also included in the guideline.
