RE: Flood Control Structures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Jonathan,

Look at the US Army Corps of Engineers web site at
http://www.usace.army.mil/inet/usace-docs/eng-manuals/em.htm.  Scroll down
to the documents EM 1110-2-xxxx.  There are several publications regarding
the design of flood control systems and structures.

Regards,
Harold Sprague
