With rapid urbanization, inundation-induced property losses have become more and more severe. Urban inundation modeling is an effective way to reduce these losses. This paper introduces a simplified urban stormwater inundation simulation model based on the United States Environmental Protection Agency Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) and a geographic information system (GIS)-based diffusive overland-flow model. SWMM is applied for computation of flows in storm sewer systems and flooding… 

A GIS-Based Simulation Application to Model Surface Runoff Level in Urban Blocks

Simulation of flood inundation in urban areas longer important, given the magnitude of potential loss and disruption associated with non-river based, urban flooding. The complexity of the urban

Usage of SIMWE model to model urban overland flood: a case study in Oslo

There has been a surge of interest in the field of urban flooding in recent years. However, current stormwater management models are often too complex to apply on a large scale. To fill this gap,

Spatial Data and Catchment Discretization for Assessment Coastal Urban Drainage Performance Using GIS and MIKE URBAN-SWMM

The urban drainage model requires spatial data and catchment discretization because of the complexity of system. Using integration of Geometric Information System (GIS) technology and urban storm

Under the circumstances of global warming and rapid urbanization, damage caused by urban inundation are becoming increasingly severe, attracting the attention of both researchers and governors. The

Development of a 1D/2D Urban Flood Model Using the Open-Source Models SWMM and MOHID Land

Urban pluvial floods are the outcome of the incapacity of drainage systems to convey the runoff generated by intense rainfall events. Cities have been struggling to control such hazards due to

Multi-dimensional dynamic simulation of rainstorm waterlogging in urban communities

One major threat to cities at present is the increasing rainstorm waterlogging hazards due to climate change and accelerated urbanization. This paper explores the mechanism of rainstorm waterlogging

Spatial simulation of rainstorm waterlogging based on a water accumulation diffusion algorithm

Abstract This study presents a water accumulation diffusion algorithm to spatially simulate rainstorm-induced waterlogging for people’s lives and property safety. Taking part of Jinfeng District in

An Evaluation Framework for Urban Pluvial Flooding Based on Open-Access Data

Identifying the location and estimating the magnitude of urban pluvial flooding events is essential to assess their impacts, particularly in areas where data are unavailable. The present work focused

Development and Demonstration of an Interactive Tool in an Agent-Based Model for Assessing Pluvial Urban Flooding

Urban pluvial floods (UPFs) are a threat that is expected to increase with economic development, climate change, and the proliferation of urban cover worldwide. Methods to assess the spatiotemporal

Sustainability Evaluation Framework of Urban Stormwater Drainage Options for Arid Environments Using Hydraulic Modeling and Multicriteria Decision-Making

Stormwater drainage systems in urban areas located in arid environmental regions generally consist of storm-sewer networks and man-made ponds for the collection and disposal of runoff, respectively.

The extraction of building area is described using a tight coupling approach within a GIS environment, and its influence on the extent of flood inundation with a high building density is estimated.

Application of the stormwater management model to a piedmont city: a case study of Jinan City, China.

A sensitivity analysis showed that the model outputs were most sensitive to imperviousness and conduit roughness; and infiltration parameters and depression storage play an important role in total runoff and peak flow.

Methodology for qualitative urban flooding risk assessment.

The presented methodology was shown to be easy to implement and effective to assess flooding risk in urban areas, despite the common difficulties in obtaining data.

1D and 2D Modelling of Urban Drainage Systems using XP-SWMM and TUFLOW

The release of a revised NSW Floodplain Management Manual in 2001 established a new direction for urban flood management in NSW. This new direction was created by a redefinition of the floodplain as
