By giving warning of impending flood, people can take action to reduce damage, reduce disruption, be informed to get out of the way, take refuge and thus save lives. To learn more read this blog...
2D flood modeling offers many benefits when executed appropriately. Many disaster planning and control experts use 2D modeling for the predictive analysis of a potential flooding situation. However, you don't want to inadvertently make these mistakes.
For years, engineer and planning teams have used hydraulic and hydrologic models to adjust and plan for long term changes to the system. Many times, when the core project of the model is completed the model is left without updates for long periods of time. Now utilities and engineering firms are using interconnected modeling databases to support ongoing planning, operations, and real-time system management. The status quo is changing, read this article to learn more:
