The overall objectives of this research project are to (i) provide guidance on the design, assessment and management of transitions in flood defences so as to minimise the risk of failure at those areas/points, (ii) develop methods for the risk assessment of transitions, and their integration into flood defence risk assessment procedures and (iii) advance knowledge and understanding of the physical processes associated with different forms of transition.
