About this book

An up-to-date text on the simulation of flood risk in both rural and urban areas, this book begins by presenting the main concepts related to one-dimensional flood propagation. Detailed mathematical models that place particular emphasis on numerical modelling are featured. There are also sections on practical aspects in river flood routing problems, parameter identification in I-D flood routing including optimising techniques with applications, and the routing of dam-break waves with a brief description of historical dam failures and their main causes. The second part of the book is devoted to urban floods with hydrological and hydrodynamic modelling. One- and two-dimensional mathematical models with practical applications in urban basins are included. Flood Risk Simulation will be of interest to postgraduate students, researchers and professionals involved in this area of water resource management.


Chapter One: One-dimensional routing of river and dam-break flood waves Introduction; General one-dimensional equations for unsteady flows; Solution methods-models for one-dimensional natural floods; Engineering and theoretical aspects in one-dimensional river flood routing practice; Parameter identification in flood routing models; Case studies for natural floods; Dam-break waves in one dimension; Case studies for dam-break floods; General conclusions and remarks Chapter Two: Flood hazard and inundation analysis Introduction; Concepts of flood hazard and inundation model; Runoff model based on kinematic wave model; Inundation flow model; Inundation analysis in urban area; Inundation analysis in low-lying river basin; Flood hazard analysis in river recreation area by heavy rainfall; Concluding remarks Chapter Three: Mathematical modelling of rural and urban floods: a hydraulic approach Introduction; The mathematical cell model; Application to a rural watershed: The Pantanal marsh in Brazil; Concepts related to urban floods behaviour; Urban flood control through a mathematical cell model; Application to a small urban watershed; Requirements for flood modelling in complex urban watersheds; Application to a sub-basin of the city of Rio de Janeiro
