The bastion is both a modern gabion used for flood control and military fortification. It is made of a collapsible wire mesh container and heavy duty fabric liner, and used as a temporary to semi-permanent dike or barrier against blast or small-arms.
Bastions can be used as temporary structures on civil engineering construction sites or as rapid deployment flood protection barriers in place of sandbags in certain circumstances.When used for temporary works, they should be properly engineered as gravity retaining walls. For temporary retaining structures, a suitable drainage fill should be incorporated through the structure at regular intervals along the wall length to prevent the hydrostatic pressure. Bastions are not free to drain like stones filled with gabion structures.For flood defense purposes, Bastions should be sand filled. It is also common practice for the front face to be additionally externally lined with an impermeable liner.
