The use of large wood in river restoration projects is becoming more popular. As state and federal funding allows for larger projects, owner investments increase and engineering liability must follow suit. Large wood design needs to be integrated with state and federal regulatory requirements. This workshop incorporates the latest technology used in large wood projects nationwide. Topics for the workshop include geomorphic siting of large wood projects, types of large wood projects, engineering liability and due diligence, design components involved in large wood installation, construction logistics and construction site safety when working with wood. Concepts covered will include hydrologic and engineering considerations such as inundation frequency, buoyancy and drag force considerations, installation timing and procedures, moment force calculations, species composition and decay rates, design countermeasures, anchoring techniques and attendant bank stabilization techniques commonly employed. Project types demonstrated will include engineered log jams, individual wood, mobile wood, floodplain roughness, toe protection and trapping elements.
