Abstract:

The overall objective of this contract is to improve the predictive capabilities of MILHY2 whilst retaining its parsimonious data requirements, portability and simplicity of application. This objective has been achieved through the investigation of the following specific objectives to develop the modular structure of MILHY to allow not only flexibility in catchment representation but also choice in the process resolution of the solution to develop the channel routing components of MILHY2 to improve prediction of out- of-bank flood events to investigate and implement several alternative validation schemes for the revised MILHY scheme, using both field data and hydrodynamic simulation of the River Fulda catchment in West Germany to explore the suitability of a finite-element hydrodynamic model RMA-2V for large scale floodplain modelling and to investigate the linking of MILHY with a hydrodynamic model RMA-2V to provide enhanced inundation modelling within a catchment scheme.
