... 6 Resilient Design with Distributed Rainfall-Runoff Modeling • Factors that determine whether the models are applicable (e.g., watershed basin size, watershed characteristics, calibration information availability, complexity of the transportation project, future climate event scenarios, funding, continuous versus event-based simulation) ; • Distributed rainfall-runoff modeling software packages used [e.g., Hydrologic Engineering Center-River Analysis System -- two dimensions (HEC-RAS 2D)
From page 7...
... Introduction 7 involved the estimates of flooding in roadways and propose approaches to improve roadway resilience and more precise estimates of peak flows for bridge scour computations, among other applications. The synthesis is completed with Chapter 5, which presents a summary of key findings of the literature review, questionnaire answers, and interviews.
