  1. 1. Urban development consequences of the riverine floods in the Western Balkans: Analysing Belgrade

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet

    Author : Santiago Lema Burgos; [2020]
    Keywords : Urban resilience; flooding risk reduction; land use plan; flood preparedness; flood adaptation.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Rapid urbanisation coupled with unplanned development create the perfect recipe for a disaster, the risk of which has increased with climate change-related uncertainties. Belgrade’s high population growth rate and exposure to riverine flooding presents such a case. READ MORE

  2. 2. GIS-based approach to estimate direct economic damages of fluvial flooding under various future scenarios: A case study of the Neckar river basin (Germany)

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet

    Author : Ruben Prütz; [2020]
    Keywords : climate change; flood damage; fluvial flood; GIS; HEC-GeoRAS; HEC-RAS; MOLUSCE; Neckar; river basin; stage-damage; strength of knowledge; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Fluvial floods can cause significant damages to inundated assets. The frequency and magnitude of fluvial floods are related to precipitation amounts, which are expected to change throughout the 21st century due to global warming. READ MORE

  3. 3. Numerical Study on Air Demand of Free Surface Flows in a Discharge Tunnel

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för fysik och astronomi; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för fysik och astronomi

    Author : Jonathan Barassa; Rickard Nordlöf; [2020]
    Keywords : Computational Fluid mechanics; Hydropower; Air demand; Free surface flows; ANSYS Fluent;

    Abstract : Aeration issued through a ventilation shaft is an important measure to prevent cavitation and large gauge pressure in flood discharge tunnels. In order to dimension the ventilation shaft appropriately, itis necessary to have a good understanding of the air-water flow in the tunnel. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sensitivity analysis of grate inlet representation and a comparison of two coupled hydraulic models for urban flood simulation

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Geovetenskap och miljöteknik

    Author : Daniel Lundqvist; [2020]
    Keywords : Urban flood models; 1D-2D coupled models; MIKE FLOOD; FLO-2D; inlet grates; manholes;

    Abstract : Urban flood models are an important tool in designing and analyzing municipalities sewer drainage systems and predicting the effect of potential extent and depth of future floods. In urban areas, coupled 1D-2D flood models are particularly useful as they can represent the surface- and sewer system and their interactions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Insights from a panarchy approach to the resilience of a social-ecological system: the case of La Marjaleria (Castelló, Spain)

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Marc Escamilla Nacher; [2020]
    Keywords : Sustainable Development; Resilience; Social-Ecological Systems; Panarchy; Spain; Flood Risk;

    Abstract : The idea of evolutionary resilience in complex systems has gained attention in the recent years. This approach provides better insights in the context of emergence and adaptive capacity, that characterises complex adaptive systems (CAS) such as social-ecological systems (SES), than traditional reductionist and engineering resilience approaches.
