To avoid the nuisance of frequent flooding during rainy season, designing an efficient stormwater drainage system has become the need of the hour for present world engineers and urban planners. The present case study deals with providing a solution to stormwater management problem in an urbanized area. Mann–Kendall and Sen’s slope tests are used to perform the trend analysis of rainfall events using daily rainfall data (1956–2012), while the L-moments-based frequency analysis method is employed… 
Flood hydrograph simulation using the SWMM model: A semiarid zone watershed case study, Shiraz Khoshk River, Iran
In the past few decades, considerable efforts have been made to model rainfall‐runoff and to predict the hydrological impacts of various factors using computer technology. The Environmental
Modelling Pluvial Flooding in Urban Areas Coupling the Models Iber and SWMM
Dual urban drainage models allow users to simulate pluvial urban flooding by analysing the interaction between the sewer network (minor drainage system) and the overland flow (major drainage system).
Integrated Hydrological-Hydraulic Model for Flood Simulation in Tropical Urban Catchment
In recent decades, Malaysia has become one of the world’s most urbanized nations, causing severe flash flooding. Urbanization should meet the population’s needs by increasing the development of paved
Hydrodynamic modelling and vulnerability analysis to assess flood risk in a dense Indian city using geospatial techniques
Urban flooding and waterlogging are causing menace in many cities around the world from the perspective of day-to-day functioning, health and hygiene, communication, and the consequent damages they
Risk Assessment of Urban Floods Based on a SWMM-MIKE21-Coupled Model Using GF-2 Data
The results demonstrate that the loss per unit area was less than CNY 250/m2 in each return period in the majority of the damaged areas, indicating that the drainage system in the study area is insufficient and has a higher flood risk.
Visualisation of urban flood inundation using SWMM and 4D GIS
The areas vulnerable to flood disaster can be identified by using appropriate technologies for flood vulnerability mapping and visualisation. This paper describes the study taken up for flood
Delineation of the Flooded Areas in Urban Environments Based on a Simplified Approach
The Tulcea municipality is frequently exposed to rainfall-generated floods, with its lower downtown area (located in the Danube’ former meadow, now protected by dikes) being flooded two to three
A methodology for simple 2-D inundation analysis in urban area using SWMM and GIS
Urban waterlogging occurred frequently in recent years, causing serious social harms and huge economic losses. Accurate waterlogging warning is important for disaster prevention and mitigation. Urban


A Solution for Flood Control in Urban Area: Using Street Block and Raft Foundation Space Operation Model
The overdevelopment of urban area has decreased the city’s ground permeability and increased its surface runoff. Moreover, the urban area existing flood control system meets the high risk and new
Urban Drainage Infrastructure Planning and Design Considering Climate Change
Climate change is a reality that planners and designers of drainage infrastructures must consider. The cumulative effects of gradual changes in hydrology due to climatic change are expected to alter
Urban flood resilience planning and management and lessons for the future: a case study of Mumbai, India
Mumbai city, having an area of 437 km2 with a population of 12 million, came to a complete halt owing to the unprecedented rainfall of 994 mm during the 24 hours starting 08:30 on 26 July 2005. At

Effects of urbanization on streamflow in the Atlanta area (Georgia, USA): a comparative hydrological approach
For the period from 1958 to 1996, streamflow characteristics of a highly urbanized watershed were compared with less‐urbanized and non‐urbanized watersheds within a 20 000 km2 region in the vicinity
