Dam overtopping and flood routing with the TREX watershed model
Modeling dam overtopping and flood routing downstream of reservoirs can provide basic information about the magnitudes of flood events that can be beneficial in dam engineering, emergency action planning, and floodplain management. In recent years there has been considerable progress in computer model code development, computing speed and capability, and available elevation, vegetation, soil type, and land use data which has led to much interest in multi-dimensional modeling of dam failure, overtopping, and flood routing at the watershed scale. The purpose of this study is to ascertain the ...
