Webinar: Dam Breach Modelling
Tuesday, 11 December, 2018
Approaches to dam breach modelling vary greatly when estimating the discharge through the breach and potential downstream inundation impacts.
This webinar will address 3 key issues:
1) upstream of the dam (reservoir) Krey Price 5 min
2) the dam itself (breach parameters) Chris Goodell 10-12 min
3) downstream of the dam (flood wave routing) Bill Syme 10-12 min
The different approaches to generating the breach hydrograph, the numerical modelling of downstream flood inundation, benchmarking of solution schemes, and uncertainties associated with the modelling will be presented and explored.
