FLUTSCHUTZ Alignment Protection

For construction of a conventional sandbag alignment to protect of low-lying areas in case of flooding huge amounts of sandbags are needed. Approximately 7,000 sandbags are needed for a conventional alignment 0.5 m high and 100 m long. Therefore, many hands as well as material and transports are needed to install and dismantle such a system.

Developed by Bremen City University of Applied Sciences
The innovative FLUTSCHUTZ Alignment System is a non-stationary water-filled tube system made of reinforced plastic membranes. Its purpose is to offer an emergency dam system to protect low-lying areas against flooding. The installation and dismantling of a FLUTSCHUTZ Alignment System is much more easy and rapid compared to conventional sandbag systems. No additional anchorage like mounting bars and end constructions are necessary and the construction is held in place by its own weight.

TRL9. System ready for full scale deployment
Actual system proven in operational environment (competitive manufacturing). The solution is used successfully in a structurally operational environment. The user can and wants to recommend the solution to others. The FLUTSCHUTZ Alignment Protection was developed within the research project HWS-Mobile, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. Different prototypes of such water-filled tube systems for emergency flood control were developed and tested in laboratory as well as in situ. In 2012, the FLUTSCHUTZ Impoundment was tested and certified by the German Technical Inspection Agency TUV Nord for deployment in emergency flood control. Since 2015, the system is in use in Bangkok, Thailand.

The main components of the system have been tested separately, and an initial integration exercise has been conducted.

How does it work?

The FLUTSCHUTZ Alignment Protection is made of flexible, water-filled membranes. The empty membrane can be brought easily to the endangered area. First, the membrane is filled with air using a gasoline-driven booster. After proper placement of the air-filled construction the air fill is replaced by water using a gasoline-driven pump. For filling the on-site available flooding water can be used directly.

Limitations/conditions under which this innovation does not work or is less effective

Only for emergency use with restricted flood water levels at the construction of maximum 0.6 m high.

Added value

The FLUTSCHUTZ Alignment Protection offers the following advantages compared to conventional sandbag systems: – Low consumption of resources – Rapid deployment – Only few personnel required<br>
