چکیده مقاله:

With the expansion of urbanization and urban development, proper management of urban floods has become a significant challenge in the fields of urban planning and environmental management. In this study, the role and effectiveness of floating Pontoon breakwaters in controlling and mitigating urban floods in Tehran were examined. Firstly, by analyzing the damages caused by urban floods, the requirements for the use of floating Pontoon breakwaters were identified. Then, the advantages and disadvantages of these structures were carefully examined.Based on the statistics and figures obtained from research and technical studies, floating Pontoon breakwaters not only have the capability to reduce the inflow of water into the city during floods but also can significantly reduce the damages caused by urban floods. For example, installing Pontoon breakwaters in urban rivers can reduce the average volume of water entering the city by up to ۷۰% and decrease damages to urban structures by up to ۶۰%.Furthermore, by comparing the costs of installing and maintaining floating Pontoon breakwaters with the costs resulting from urban floods, it was determined that these structures are reasonably cost-effective and have a positive effectiveness in reducing damages. In general, the results indicate that floating Pontoon breakwaters can be an effective tool in urban flood management, and considering the environmental and economic conditions of Tehran, it is recommended to utilize these structures for controlling and mitigating urban floods.
