Geotechnics for Catastrophic Flooding Events presents the keynote lectures (book, 264 pages) and keynote lectures and general papers (CD-ROM, 608 pages) presented at the Fourth International ISSMGEConference on Geotechnical Engineering for Disaster Mitigation and Rehabilitation (4th GEDMAR, Kyoto, Japan, 16-18 September 2014). The contributions discuss hurricane, rainstorm and storm surge induced riverine and coastal flooding events, such as the 2004 Sumatra earthquake in Indonesia, the 2005 Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans, USA, Typhoon Morakot, which devastated parts of Taiwan in 2009 and the 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster in Eastern Japan, when combined failure mechanisms, multiple hazards, and rare events with huge consequences occurred. The book is divided into the following sections: – Keynote lectures – Liquefaction experiment and analysis project (LEAP) – Guidelines and recommendations for local governments to mitigate flooding disasters – Materials and modeling – Natural hazards – Disaster mitigation and rehabilitation Geotechnics for Catastrophic Flooding Events will be of interest to researchers, academics, industry practitioners and other professional involved in earthquake geotechnical engineering, foundation engineering, and earthquake engineering and structural dynamics.

Flood management planning and design of flood control facilities has evolved in recent years. Today, management of floods include planning and construction of facilities such as dams and detention facilities, coordinated operations of the reservoirs with flood control reservations, improvement of flood channels and levees, watershed management and proper land use planning. Flood control refers to all methods used to reduce or prevent the detrimental effects of flood waters. Floods are caused by many factors: heavy rainfall, highly accelerated snowmelt, severe winds over water, unusual high tides, tsunamis, or failure of dams, levees, retention ponds, or other structures that retained the water. Flooding can be exacerbated by increased amounts of impervious surface or by other natural hazards such as wildfires, which reduce the supply of vegetation that can absorb rainfall.

Prepared by the Task Committee on Flood Safety Policies and Practices of ASCE. In 2005, the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina graphically revealed the vulnerability of U.S. communities to the loss of life and property resulting from flooding. In the aftermath, the American Society of Civil Engineers issued a call for action to address growing flood losses and threats to public safety. Then, in 2012, Hurricane Sandy found the nation still unprepared and unaware of the magnitude of flood risk. ASCE charged a task committee with investigating the extent to which the lessons learned from the failure of the hurricane protection system during Hurricane Katrina have been incorporated into the planning, design, construction, and management of engineered water resources projects. The investigation would provide a basis for influencing changes in national policy and engineering practice related to flood safety. The committee met with government agencies, the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, and those affected by Katrina and subsequent disasters. The committee concluded that the federal government, in close collaboration with state, tribal, and local governments, concerned public and private organizations, and the public at large, must develop and use forward-thinking flood risk management processes. Doing so would reduce the nationÕs vulnerability to dangers and damages resulting from floods while concurrently protecting natural resources, enhancing the functions of floodplains, and supporting wise and sustainable economic development of appropriate coast and river areas. A must-read for key decision-makers and any member of the public living on or near water, this report highlights the difference between doing what weÕve been doingÑreactively recover from catastrophic eventsÑand doing what we must doÑproactively minimize the life-changing impacts of floods and hurricanes.

About 7,000 people lose their lives and nearly 100 million people are adversely affected by floods each year worldwide. Flooding occurs in almost every part of the world and is the result of extreme rainfall. Severe flooding also costs billions of dollars each year in damage and economic losses. This new volume focuses on two detailed studies that employ physically based hydrologic models to predict flooding in the particularly challenging environment of small watersheds with mountainous terrain and high intensity/high variability rainfall.
