50th Edition  Conference

International Symposium on Hydraulic Engineering Aachen

"Heavy Rainfall and Flash Floods in Urban Areas"
Heavy rainfalls and resulting flash floods can potentially hit any region and are independent of the location to larger watercourses. In recent years heavy precipitation events hit cities like Dortmund (2008), Münster (2014) and Aachen (2018). But also internationally, heavy rainfalls, such as for example the cyclone Idai in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Malawi (2019), flooded entire areas of the countries with heavy precipitation.The most crucial issue heavy precipitation causes is that at the .. continue reading point of impact everyone is endangered and even small thunderstorm cells can lead to severe local floods with high damages. Thus, classic flood protection concepts cannot simply be transferred to protection against heavy precipitation events. Climate models point to a stronger trend for extreme events. For the future, this might lead to an increased frequency and intensity of heavy rainfall events resulting in high damage.
