With detailed case study analysis, this publication is a must-buy for clients, project funders, consulting engineers and all others interested in coastal and fluvial engineering.It is worth noting that the inverse of an annual probability transposes into a return period measured in years. The annual return period is currently the most common measure of performance (e.g. flood protection set to resist the 1 in 200 year event). ... The lifetime probability of exceedance can be calculated using the following formula: TR where 77? is the design return period and n is the design life.
