Flood defence systems are becoming more important structures to engineers, inhabitants, and decision makers. FloodSite project1 is an evidence of a collective attempt of 37 European countries to reduce the risk of flooding in their homelands. There are several pilot sites defined in this project to apply and evaluate new techniques: River Elbe Basin in Germany, River Thames Estuary in England, and River Scheldt Estuary in the Netherlands.
