Dans le cadre général des grands événements récurrents d'inondation enregistrés à travers le monde et en Europe en particulier, des cartes d'inondation représenteraient un outil de grand intérêt pour les décideurs en matière d’aménagement du territoire mais aussi pour les compagnies d'assurance afin d’évaluer les risques liés à l'inondation ou encore pour permettre une gestion de crise efficace sur le terrain. Dans ce but, des cartes complètes et précises sont nécessaires pour différents événements de probabilités données. En Belgique, début 2003, suivant une décision du gouvernement wallon, le modèle d’écoulements à surface libre WOLF2D a été officiellement choisi pour calculer des cartes d'inondation sur 800 kilomètres de cours d’eau en région wallonne en utilisant un modèle numérique de terrain à très haute résolution. Les résultats de ces calculs ont, par la suite, été utilisés par l'administration wallonne afin de concevoir la carte d’aléa inondation sur l’ensemble du territoire. Le modèle hydraulique employé est intégré dans la suite logicielle WOLF, qui est développée depuis plus de dix ans à l'Université de Liège. Basée sur la formulation classique des équations en eaux peu profondes, sa discrétisation en volumes finis permet de traiter tout écoulement composé de mailles sèches et mouillées tout en assurant exactement la conservation du volume. Le caractère multiblocs du logiciel permet de modéliser des raffinements locaux du maillage au niveau des centres urbains tout en conservant, si nécessaire, des maillages plus lâches dans les grandes plaines inondables. Par ailleurs, des procédés de raffinement automatique du maillage permettent d’accélérer fortement les temps de calcul. Un modèle moyenné de turbulence type k-ε peut également être employé et renforce ainsi les potentialités du modèle face aux écoulements complexes. Une interface permet en outre de gérer l’ensemble des procédures de pré et post processing nécessaires à la conception des modélisations et à l’interprétation des résultats. Les opérations d'importation et d'exportation sont facilement réalisables vers la plupart des outils SIG classiques. Différentes couches de cartes peuvent être manipulées pour analyser les informations relatives à la topographie, à l’occupation du sol, à la densité de la végétation ou encore aux champs hydrodynamiques. Grâce à l'utilisation de modèles topographiques de haute résolution (1 point par mètre carré) disponible sur le lit principal comme sur les plaines d'inondation des cours d’eau étudiés, des modélisations basées sur des maillages composés de cellules carrées de 2m x 2m ont été réalisées notamment au droit des centres urbains traversés par les rivières. Le modèle hydraulique a été intensivement validé par des comparaisons avec des observations lors d’événements récents. L'incertitude globale du modèle s'est avérée inférieure à 10 centimètres en termes de surface libre et permet de décrire l’inondation rue par rue et maison par maison. [less ▲]

Within the global framework of the climate change, according to most Regional Climate Mod-els the maximum peak discharges in river will increase in importance and frequency. Therefore the people will have to face worst inundation conditions. In order to protect themselves from the increasing flood risk, the communities have to draw up suitable flood protection measures. The selection and the evaluation among the different possible flood mitigation measures requires developing decision-support system (DSS). This sys-tem has to take into consideration parameters such as hydraulic, economic, social or environmental. This pa-per focuses on the integration between two components of the DSS, namely the evaluation of the economic impacts of floods and the hydrodynamic modelling. The hydraulic simulations are conducted by means of WOLF 2D flow modelling system and provide as an output high resolution flood maps detailing the distribu-tion of water depth and flow velocity in the floodplains. The integration is ensured by the use of very accurate geographic databases and an automated procedure which makes the most of geomatic methods. The paper de-tails the application of the integrated assessment procedure for a case study along the river Ourthe located in the Meuse basin (Belgium). Moreover, possibilities of validation of the economic damage evaluation proce-dure are investigated by comparing computation results with real damage data recorded by the Belgian Disas-ter Fund after several major flood events (2003, 2002, 1995, and 1993).

A 2D hydraulic numerical model is presented. It is based on the fully dynamic shallow-water equations, solved by means of a finite volume scheme on multiblock structured grids. The model handles highly accurate DSM derived from airborne laser altimetry for the floodplains and sonar detection for the bathymetry of the main channel. The flow simulations are performed with a typical grid spacing of 2m, comparable to the resolution of the DSM and fine enough to represent reliably the flows at the scale of each building. Consequently, the model succeeds in predicting accurately the pattern of flood depth even in densely urbanized floodplains, as confirmed by several validation examples, which also demonstrate the ability of the model to reproduce depth measurements for a wide range of flood discharges without the need for recalibration of the roughness coefficient. Finally, the hydraulic model is exploited as a component of a complete flood risk modelling chain, accounting for socio-economic and ecological impacts of floods and dedicated to the assessment of flood protection measures in the context of climate change.

In the global framework of recurrent large flood events all over the world and in Europein particular, relevant and detailed inundation maps represent a tool of prime interest fordecision makers, emergency services or insurance companies. In 2003 in Belgium, following a Regional Government decision, hydraulic 2D numerical modelling has been chosen to compute inundation maps on 800 km of the main rivers of the Walloon Region, using high resolution Digital Elevation Models. The present paper covers a detailed description of the state-of-the-art 2D finite volume model used to fulfil this task. As a part of this project, the model has been extensively validated by comparisons with observations during recent real flood events. It shows a very good agreement with observations, in particular regarding free surface elevations. Following this first step toward flood management, the Belgian National project “ADAPT” is presented. It aims to develop an efficient decision support tool for the integrated assessment ofadaptation measures against climate change induced flooding. In this scope, the model has been applied to predict inundations induced by floods, taking into account different climate change scenarios. The results of these simulations serve as input for a subsequent economic, social and ecological analysis by other scientific research teams. [less ▲]

ABSTRACT: this paper describes a quasi-3D free surface flow solver,developed for almost ten years at the University of Liege, and its application to flood extension forecasting. Based on the classical SWE, the finite volume numerical model deals with real topography and wetting-drying cells while exactly conserving the water volume. Multiblock options allow local refine-ment of the structured calculation grid and automatic mesh refinement enhances greatly compu-tation time. An additional depth-averaged k-ε type turbulence model increases the potentialities of the solver to represent real complex flows. Following a Regional Government decision, this solver has been officially chosen in 2003 to be used to compute inundation maps on 800 km of the main rivers of the Walloon Region in Belgium with a spatial resolution of 5 x 5 to 2 x 2 me-ters and using high resolution Digital Elevation Models. Results are presented in this paper. [less ▲]

Accurately predicting the flow induced by the collapse of embankment dams remains challenging, as a consequence of the level of uncertainty affecting the prediction of breach width and formation time. Moreover, very few systematic analyses are available today concerning the sensitivity of the flow with respect to those uncertainties. The present theoretical analysis quantifies the influence of variations in the breach parameters on the peak outflow. [less ▲]

A complete risk analysis related to a complex of dams may involve the assessment of a large number of different scenarios of failures and dysfunctions. However, a high computation time would be needed to perform a two-dimensional analysis of the flows generated by all possible scenarios. For this reason, the present paper expounds two complementary flow models, developed to be exploited within a rational methodology for analysing the flows induced by various incidents on a complex of dams and reservoirs. The first model is the two-dimensional flow solver WOLF 2D, while the second one is a simplified lumped model, requiring very low computation time. An original analytical study is presented to demonstrate the conditions of applicability of the lumped model. This study leads to the practical conclusion that the evaluation of two non-dimensional parameters enables to assess a priori the validity of the simplified approach for any specific application. The paper also describes the combined application of both models to a practical case study involving a complex of five dams. In a first step the lumped model has been validated by comparisons with the results provided by the two-dimensional model WOLF 2D. Secondly the simplified model has been successfully applied, at a very low CPU cost, to simulate flows induced by various dysfunctions and to conduct sensitivity analysis. In conclusion, based on both theoretical developments and numerical studies, the paper provides new advances of practical relevance for dam break risk analysis. [less ▲]
