Description

GC1 Concepts for hydrologic/hydraulic modelling of flood events are provided. Moreover, the general motivation of flood risk management (FRM) as well as the social and political framework of FRM are introduced. Different strategies and measures of technical, decentral, and nature-based flood protection are included.
GC2 Required data for hydrodynamic and sediment modeling. Examples of applications of 1D, 2D and 3D sediment modeling with reference to NBS modeling.   Introduction to coupled 1D/2D modeling. Basic equations and the 1D/2D HECRAS model. Examples of applications of HECRAS to NBS modeling.
GC3 Introduction to hydrodynamic and water quality modeling for flash flood events. Basic equations and required data.
HOM1 Hydrological Analysis through the Implementation of NBS, such as Land Cover Change and Retention Ponds, for the Management of Flood Hazards.
HOM2 Modeling the effect of a NBS (storage area in the floodplain) on the hydrodynamics of a river of simple geometry using HECRAS.
HOM3 Modeling the health risks associated with pathogens during and after a flood event. Setting up a coupled Telemac 2D model and water quality model. Application in a German municipality as a case study. Application of mitigation scenarios using NBS.
