CityCAT urban flood model - Cloud project report PDF 1,227Kb

CityCAT is an urban flood modelling, analysis and visualisation tool which uses very accurate and computationally efficient solutions for free surface flow equations. In this pilot project a Cloud Computing compatible version of CityCAT was developed, this enabled modelling of flooding of larger domains (up to 1,100km2) with much higher resolution (up to 16,000,000 computational cells) than has been done previously. This project has demonstrated that the use of Cloud Computing can enable efficient and detailed modelling of flooding at a city or even regional scale, with high resolution, using standard terrain and rainfall data and Cloud enabled software which does not impose limitations on the computational domain size.
