Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 46-16. Minimizing Roadway Embankment Damage From Flooding

The objective of this synthesis is to produce a state of the practice report on how the transportation community is protecting roadways and mitigating damage from inundation and overtopping. The report will document the mechanics of damage to the embankment and pavement, analysis tools available, and design and maintenance practices for embankment protection. The synthesis will also consider the inundation-only condition of pavements and subgrades.
