The second research thread is described in Chapter 3, where a new, physically-based computational model (called FLDPLN, or qFloodplainq) for mapping potential inundation extents (floodplains) using gridded topographic data is introduced. Due to the parametric economy of FLDPLN, this model has significant advantages over existing methods such as hydrodynamic models. The model is validated using imagery from an actual flood event.Both the energy and momentum equations originate from Newtona#39;s second law of motion (Henderson 1966, p.5). In particular, hydrodynamic equations for open channel (or free surface) flow are most generally developed using ... After all of the boundary conditions have been specified, solutions are worked upstream from cross section to cross section in the case of subcritical flow (i.e., whereanbsp;...
