The journal of flood risk management publishes a piece of research related to RESCCUE

A scientific paper related to the RESCCUE project has been published in the Flood Risk Management journal. The piece, entitled “An approach to the modelling of stability of waste containers during urban flooding”, outlines one of the adaptation measures that have been proposed within RESCCUE to increase the resilience of the waste sector against urban floods in Barcelona.

This paper, written by Eduardo Martínez‐Gomariz (Cetaqua, Water Technology Centre), Beniamino Russo (AQUATEC) and Aurea Plumed (Ajuntament de Barcelona) and Manuel Gómez (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya), describes the concern related to the waste containers’ stability during flood events and proposes an adaptation measure to deal with this ever more frequent issue. This is only one of the measures that form the adaptation strategy to cope with pluvial floods in Barcelona that are proposed within the RESCCUE project.
