Simulations of flash floods in Marseille and Bordeaux with a two-dimensional runoff model

F. Pons, B. Zhang, P. Sergent & D. Felts
Recent tragedies of flooding in urban areas like Bordeaux (1982), N\303\256mes (1988) or Marseille (2000) have led stakeholders and technicians to lean on this issue. Sewage systems for rainfalls are generally designed for events with a return period of ten years whereas more severe events lead to runoff on the streets and unfortunately to damages of goods and sometimes human casualties. This work aims at improving surface flow models in urban area through a project...
