Belgium has fifteen structures included in the list of large dams of the International Committee on Large Dams. Six are managed by Engie Company, the other nine are owned by the Walloon regional public authority. The Belgian legislator has never enacted specific rules for large dams. However, managers have always been concerned with this issue. They developed procedures and methods that were subject to exchanges of experience with their counterparts, in particular through the Belgian Committee on Large Dams. In this ongoing research of security, the impact of multiple failure scenarios (dam break, quick emptying …) on the people and the environment downstream of dams is a particular focal point. An impact study has been conducted for the main plants. This study is based on a deterministic numerical method. The methodology, the assumptions regarding the failure mode or emptying and the lessons learned from the analyses are presented. These results are an important step in the assessment and the management of risks. Indeed, regulations were recently enacted for the management and the coordination of any activity likely to seriously impact public safety during crisis periods. These rules apply therefore for large dams. In this context, managers have established an emergency plan for each structure. This paper provides a broad overview on the issues of the evaluation and the management of dysfunction risks of Belgian dams, as well as on approaches and collaborations initiated between the private managers and public authority.

Dam breaching is an important factor that should be included in an embankment break model. Indeed the assumption of instantaneous break is not suitable in case of earth dams, which fail gradually and thus induce a delayed peak outflow, significantly reinforcing the flood wave front. Unlike computations performed classically, WOLF software package deals with the different phenomena (erosion processes, reservoir emptying and downstream wave propagation) in a completely integrated way. This finite volume computer code has been completely developed by the authors at the University of Liege. Transient discontinuities are properly handled thanks to an original splitting of the convective terms. The paper briefly presents WOLF software, which includes a physically based hydrological model, an original 1D flood routing (appropriate for any natural river network) and a 2D shallow-water solver. The latest hydrodynamic model is coupled to a mass balance for bed load sediments. Solid discharges are evaluated with reliable transport capacity laws. Gravity induced solid discharges are taken into account by means of side slope stability analysis. This paper also exhibits how WOLF software package has been successfully applied to the completely coupled computation of a gradual dam breaching process, with a focus on downstream effects on wave propagation. WOLF proves its ability to achieve the integrated computation of solid transport, flows upstream, through the breach, in the scour hole and in the whole downstream valley. Major feedback effects on the upstream part of the reservoir are shown and they demonstrate the relevance of such an integrated approach. [less ▲]
