Stabilization, regularization and protection can be achieved with a range of solutions such as coatings, retaining walls, longitudinal structures and groynes.

The topics covered by the book span from fluvial morphology and the types of interventions in a watercourse to bioengineering and efficient sizing methods. In addition, the book offers suggestions for the design of projects with gabions and Reno Mattresses and presents several case histories, to be used as a reference.

“This publication aims to disseminate knowledge on the most common applications for bank stabilization, regulation and protection against erosion and flood control in natural watercourses and how to scale them,” explains the author, Gerardo Fracassi. Accordingly, the book is addressed to professionals involved in hydraulic works for bank protection and stabilization, river training and flood protection.
