FLOODWAY RESEARCH SURVEY

USQ has released an online questionnaire to investigate the behaviour of floodways under extreme flood loadings.


This research aims to improve the resilience of floodway structures during extreme flood events. The research involves three-dimensional modelling of floodway structures under different extreme loading conditions, with outcomes contributing to the development of a structural design method to compliment the hydraulic design approaches utilised in the current Australian design guidelines. 


The researcher has requested the assistance of individuals with current or previous experience in floodway design, maintenance and construction. Your input into this survey will assist in validating model results and in aligning research outcomes with industry requirements.
