Integration of a surcharged pipe model and an overland flow model for flood prediction in a highly urbanized area
Two models were incorporated to evaluate the hydrologic and hydraulic behavior of the Harris Gully watershed in Houston, Texas. A HEC-1 model was created and calibrated to three historical storms for average errors of 6% ...
Next generation hydraulic modeling for inundation mapping and flood warning in complex urban systems
This thesis presents a novel methodology for predicting flooding in complex urban environments. MIKE-FLOOD was used to dynamically model the interactions between overland flow, storm sewer drainage, and tail water by linking ...
Assessment of critical factors in the Tropical Storm Allison impact on the Brays Bayou watershed
Floods are calamities with potential for many fatalities and enormous economic losses. However, the degree of vulnerability to a disaster is a function of human action and behavior. The rapid development of modern metropolitan ...
Spatial scale data requirements using NEXRAD (WSR-88D) for accurate hydrologic prediction in urban watersheds
The deployment of the WSR-88D (NEXRAD) radar by the National Weather Service in 1992 has created the possibility for enhancing flood warning systems. Due to the improved spatial resolution of the radar, a better hydrologic ...
The use of a distributed hydrologic model to evaluate the location of development and flood control reservoirs
The Little Cypress Creek watershed remains one of the least developed areas in Houston. A Vflo™ physically-based, distributed hydrologic model is used to predict the effects of future development within the watershed. Model ...
