The urban inundation model with bidirectional flow interaction between 2D overland surface and 1D sewer networks
Chen, Albert S.
An integrated numerical model is developed in the study for simulating the runoff processes in urban areas. A 1D model is used for calculating the rainfall-runoff hydrographs and the flow conditions in drainage networks. A 2D model is employed for routing flow on overland surface. Both models are solved by different numerical schemes and using different time steps with the flow through manholes adopted as model connections. The effluents and influents via manholes are determined by the weir or the orifice equations. Timing synchronisation between both models is taken into account to guarantee suitable model linkages.
