Design of a tool for modelling flows on the river Seine and its tributaries

Design of a tool for modelling flows on the river Seine and its tributaries
Context & Issues

The project consists in creating a modern hydraulic modelling tool for the main water courses in the Seine river basin. The modelling tool meets a number of objectives in terms of precision and resolution, in particular with regard to the high-water bed, to provide a means of mapping flows in dense urban districts (water depth and speed in the main flow streams). It will have many future applications, such as mapping flood-prone areas, carrying out development studies to reduce flood risks, and assessing flood-related socioeconomic vulnerability more precisely.
