Abstract

The construction of the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier was completed in 1986. The monitoring system meant to verify the functioning of the barrier during storm conditions became operational in 1988. Data concerning the geotechnical response was collected during the 4 days storm period between February 26 and March 2, 1990. In the paper some results are described. Conclusions with respect to the expected behaviour of the barrier during more extreme storms in future will be drawn in near future.

Geotechnical Prediction and Performance of Eastern Scheldt Storm Surge Barrier
