Modelling of Flood in Urbanized Area (SUIKOU-2D)


Need for flood modelling

To minimize the potential losses of lives and damage to property and possessions, a computer based flood modelling exercise can be undertaken with relative ease.

Although physical model studies also are possible but those are complicated given the time, cost and effort required to carry out these type of studies.

The knowledge and information gained from this modelling exercise can be used in a variety of ways for building resilience to the hazard due to flooding like generate flood maps, prepare emergency plans, undertake risk assessment, carry out diagnostic exercise for the sources and causes of flooding, flood warning, etc.
