2022 NOV 10 (NewsRx) — By a News Reporter – Staff News Editor at Daily Insurance News — Detailed data on Risk Management – Flood Risk Management was presented. According to reports from Parma, Italy, by NewsRx reporters, the research said, “Flood hazard assessment is a fundamental step in flood hazard mapping. Quantitative assessment requires hydrodynamic modeling of the flood process to calculate the spatial distribution of appropriate flood risk indicators representative of flood intensity and frequency, hence its potential to cause damage.

Financial support for this research came from Ministry of National Education, Universities and Research (MIUR).

News correspondents got a quote from the research of the University of Parma, “Flood risk indicators are usually defined by combining relevant flood parameters, mainly flood depth and flow velocity, but also flood arrival time, duration flooding, sediment or contamination load, etc. A flood hazard classification is commonly introduced to assign a level of risk to areas potentially prone to flooding.This article presents a systematic review of the quantitative methods proposed in the scientific literature or prescribed by government authorities to assess the hazard associated with natural or anthropogenic flooding.The flood risk classification methods are listed and compared, specifying their underlying approach (heuristic, conceptual, empirical), exposed element for which they were designed (people, buildings, vehicles, etc.) and their fields of application (de river bank, dam failure, dike failure, debris flow). Prospects and future challenges of quantitative flood risk analysis are also discussed.

According to the journalists, the research concluded: “This review aims to help modellers and practitioners select the most appropriate flood risk assessment method for the case study of interest.”
