Risk Analysis

Using floodFILL embankment breach scenarios along flood-control works can be calculated. The entered water volumes may be derived from e.g. water levels or design floods. 

Flood probabilties for endangered zones can be stated according to flood probabilty of a flood event. Thus, embankment points failing would result in severe consequences are possible to be identified.

In case of the availability of land use and infrastructure data, using empirical relations (to be established) between flooding depth and extent of damage it is possible to estimate the monetary loss to be expected.

   Possible Scenarios:
  • Identification of potential dam spillways (Hot Spots)
  • Calculations for a embankments's well-known weak points
  • mobile protection barriers
  • river defence works to be planned
  • Estimation of potential damage
