Tools and support to model breaching of embankments

Free guide to breach prediction

Breaching of embankments, whether they are small levees or large dams, is not a simple process. To achieve realistic results, a breach model needs to consider the erodibility of the embankment material as well as the height of the embankment and the volume of water that may be released in a breach situation. 

Lesser, more simplistic methods are also available – use our free Guide to Breach Prediction to decide what is appropriate to your use case, and for advice on what the best type of equation or model to use.
