Kevin Barry is a Senior Engineer with Ove Arup & Partners. He has over twelve years’ experience in developing numerical models of river and coastal systems. Using these models he has investigated many engineering problems including fluvial and coastal flooding, dam break flooding, transport of sediment, water quality and transport modelling. He has significant experience of flood risk management in Ireland.


A very significant storm event in January 2014 resulted in severe coastal erosion and flooding to Cloughaninchy beach in Co. Clare. A coastal flood and erosion risk management feasibility study of the site was subsequently... [ view full abstract ]
