Advances in flood consequence assessments
The importance of proactive flood management decisions, aided by numerical methods.
How much do you actually know about the potential consequence of a flood wave? Numerical consequence assessment software brings together hydraulic, financial, social, and mapping tools to predict flood damage, optimise evacuation routes, and estimate loss of life under a range of scenarios, aiding planners, engineers, emergency services, and other key decision-makers. Flood damage models such as HEC-LifeSim allow you to gain insight into uncertain parameters with scalable analysis tools. Map-based interfaces can quickly highlight traffic bottlenecks, flood hazards and damage hot spots.
