ABSTRACT

Performance Evaluation of the New Orleans and Southeast Louisiana Hurricane Protection System: Draft Final Report of the Interagency Performance Evaluation Task Force, Volume IV - the Storm   [open pdf - 15MB]

"This volume presents the regional hydrodynamic conditions created by Katrina (waves and water levels). Local high-resolution hydrodynamic waves and water levels at the levees and floodwalls, as well as hydrostatic and hydrodynamic forces and loadings that the levees and floodwalls were subjected to during the storm, are also presented. In addition to maximum conditions, temporal variation of waves and water levels and loadings are of great interest, as are timing and phasing of different types of loadings and forces. All conditions were evaluated. A time line of inundation and notable project responses is presented, based on many eyewitness accounts and analyses of information and observations."
