Temporary Flood Protection - terra stop log system



In the years 2002 and 2013, the Gohlis district of Dresden was completely flooded by the river Elbe. To permanently protect this part of town, we installed a complete flood protection system which at the same time provides access to the meadows along the Elbe.

On sheet piling with a foundation of drilled piles, a massive concrete and stone wall was erected, fitted partly with demountable 200 x 100 tk stop logs. These have to withstand very high impact loads – up to 50 kilonewtons per 50 x 50 centimeters. In accordance with DIN 19712, double closures were provided for crossings and passages. The protective wall is around 880 meters long, with barrier heights of 2 meters and 0.60 meters.

To store the demountable flood protection system, we designed special pallets that can be loaded and unloaded using a forklift truck, wheeled loader, or mobile crane.
