Original Abstract

After the devastating floods in the Europe and Czech Republic especially, in 1997, 2002 and 2007 years, the need of the anti-flood protection was very actual and delicate. One of the ways, how to solve this problem in the case of usual or lower water level, is the usage of anti-flood barriers. The paper is focused on the experimental verification of the actual behaviour, load-carrying capacity and failure mechanisms of the cantilevers made of FRP composite profiles PREFEN, which are in reality used as columns of anti-flood barriers. The investigated water-proof profile of H-cross-section is composed of epoxy resin and glass fibres.
