Agent-Based Model for Flood Incident Management

Agent-Based Model for Flood Incident Management

This model demonstrates a simulation approach to flood event management. It couples an agent-based model of individual behaviour with a raster cell flood model.

About the tool

These simulations can provide valuable evidence to flood risk managers and local authorities. 

They can support disaster management through identification of:

  • evacuation routes liable to congestion
  • areas most at risk of flooding 
  • potential for loss of life
  • flood damages
  • the effectiveness of flood incident management actions

Access a paper outlining the first stage of the model's development and application.
