Modeling flood inundation in floodplain of the Jamuna River using HEC-RAS and HEC-GeoRAS

  title={Modeling flood inundation in floodplain of the Jamuna River using HEC-RAS and HEC-GeoRAS},
  author={Md. Mostafizur Rahman and Md. Mostafa Ali},
Bangladesh lies at the confluence of world’s three major rivers, namely the Ganges, the Jamuna and the Meghna. In Bangladesh, normally four types of flood expressly river flood, flash flood, tidal flood and storm surge flood appear. The Jamuna River is most vulnerable to river flood. As a low lying country, flood occurs repeatedly in Bangladesh and cause tremendous losses in terms of property and life, particularly in the low land areas. At least 20 % areas are flooded every year and in case of…

Hydrologic characteristics of floods in Ganges–Brahmaputra–Meghna (GBM) delta
In the middle of 2007, a severe flood affected the People’s Republic of Bangladesh. This is a natural disaster that takes people’s lives, destroys livestock, infrastructures and communication systems
Suitability of HEC-RAS for Flood Forecasting
At present, most river flood forecasts are conducted using a two-step procedure. First, flood routing is conducted, normally using hydrological models. The resulting flood peaks are then converted to
Disaster Research: Exploring Sociological Approach to Disaster in Bangladesh
Disasters are annual events in Bangladesh. These disasters range from ravaging tornadoes to devastating floods. Of all the disasters the problem of flood has aggravated most from 1955 to 2004 and
