Abstract:Risk analysis models of fluvial and coastal flood systems have been in use for over a decade. They have been applied to support a wide range of flood risk management decisions, including long term strategic planning and shorter term asset management. Models that are currently applied in practice make a number of simplifying assumptions. The development of a new model that offers a major improvement over these methods is described. The new model incorporates: a unique dynamic 2D inundation model that captures sub-mesh element topography (RFSM EDA); a new computationally efficient model of embankment breach growth (AREBA) and extends the range of consequences considered to include the loss of life. The model has been applied on a pilot site to demonstrate its capabilities.
