The debonding failure of a polymer-based coating seriously affects the safe operation of buildings under the action of a high-velocity flood discharge flow. In order to achieve a healthy and sustainable operation of hydropower stations, the debonding failure between polyurea coating and concrete was described by the cohesive zone model, and a debonding failure model was proposed and verified. The results obtained from the model were basically consistent with the test results. Accordingly, the influence of the performance of different anchoring types, the material mechanics of polyurea-based coating and the bonding on debonding behavior were analyzed, and engineering application research was also carried out. The impact resistances of polyurea-based coating under different anchoring conditions are obtained, which provide a reference for the anti-shock and wear-resistant design of flood discharge infrastructure. The elastic modulus and Poisson’s ratio of the polyurea-based material have a significant influence on the impact resistance of polyurea-based coatings. When the elastic modulus and Poisson’s ratio of a polyurea-based material are 25 MPa and 0.45, respectively, the impact resistance is optimal. The greater the fracture energy of the bonding material, the better the impact resistance. The engineering application results show that the seepage prevention and anti-wear characteristics of flood discharge infrastructure all meet the engineering requirements.
