Abstract:An important part of the decision support system is the calculation of inundation depths, using discharge volumes through the river and land characteristics of the river basin. Within the present DSS, in the RapFlood model, several assumptions are made to make the calculations less complex and less time consuming. On the other hand complex simulations are performed by Sobek1D2D to investigate a number of selected study areas. In addition a third model, the ConfFlow model, is constructed. This model is a spin-off of the RapFlood model, with slightly different assumptions. While the RapFlood model does not consider the pathway of the flooded area, the ConFlow model considers whether the water volumes actually reach to inner dike areas looking at their flow path.
