Classification of technical countermeasures in torrent catchments

A barrier typology, based on the division between Solid Body Barriers and Open Barriers was developed. The Open Barriers are further described by a 2-part nomenclature in which the first part describes the opening and the second part describes the elements to cover the openings.

By the use of this two-folded classification, torrential barriers can be exactly defined, which makes the classification useable for databases.
