Abstract:

The publication presents analytical progress in the development of a computer simulation model for flood plain development. A conceptual model was developed for five major parts forecasting population and economic activities allocating activities to available land integrating public policies restricting land use measuring and projecting flood damages and evaluating benefits based on appropriate formulas involving flood damages, land rents, and locational advantages. Several concepts are introduced to solve problems associated with development of the simulation model.
