Brandon Klenzendorf Coauthored Papers on Flooding Issues in the Journal of the Transportation Research Board and the Journal of Critical Infrastructure Policy

Brandon Klenzendorf, Ph.D., P.E., CPESC (Texas) recently coauthored two papers related to flooding, flood risk management, and associated hydraulics in the Journal of the Transportation Research Board and the Journal of Critical Infrastructure Policy.

Brandon is a Water Resources and Environmental Engineer with eleven years of professional experience and an additional five years of research experience. Brandon's practice focuses on modeling and design of green infrastructure (GI) and stormwater management facilities to treat and infiltrate stormwater runoff for both water quality and flood mitigation purposes. His experience lies in conceptual design, planning, modeling, and quantifying the benefits of GI, particularly for retrofit situations.

The first paper entitled "Development and Testing of a Concrete Median Barrier for Flood-Prone Areas" was a collaborative research effort between Texas A&M University and The University of Texas at Austin where Brandon served in a technical role to review the hydraulics testing conducted. The paper is published in the Journal of the Transportation Research Board and was also presented at the 2021 Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting. Brandon's coauthors were Chiara Silvestri Dobrovolny, Blair A. Johnson, Roger Bligh, James Kovar, Michael E. Barrett, Gregory Hendrickson, Taya Retterer, and Jon Ries. The Journal of the Transportation Research Board  presents research findings in policy, planning, administration, economics and financing, operations, construction, design, maintenance, safety, and more, for all modes of transportation.

The second paper entitled "A Strategic Approach to Flood Risk Management" was published in the Journal of Critical Infrastructure Policy. The paper outlines the current structure of flood risk management and suggests a more strategic approach to flood infrastructure security. His coauthors were A.C. Wells, and W.G. Myler. The Journal of Critical Infrastructure Policy works develop policy and strategies to accelerate the improvement of critical infrastructure and community resilience.
