Abstract

Voies Navigables de France (VNF) decided in 2010 to replace 29 manual dams in the North East of France. The old mobile dams located on Aisne and Meuse Rivers were made of wooden needles and were installed at the end of the 19th century to develop transport and navigation in the area.

The manual dams will be replaced by water filled inflatable dams. The total width of the weirs vary from 40 to 130 meters with a minimum of 2 spans and the total length of the rubber dams when the 29 dams are cumulated is around 2.5 km.
