Flooding damage caused by the Tagliamento River has been reported since historical times. Tagliamento River is a braided river in north-east Italy, flowing from the Alps to the Adriatic Sea at a point between Trieste and Venice. The objective of the assignment was to undertake a comprehensive hydraulic modelling of Tagliamento River by means of numerical modelling and physical modelling in order to estimate the max river flows passing safely through Latisana and with a reliable freeboard under the motorway and railway bridges.
