URBAN FLOOD HAZARDS MODELLING IN ARID ZONE (Case Study in Wadi Qows Jeddah)
ABSTRACT: This thesis deals with the flood hazard that happened on November 25th, 2009. The extreme weather conditions and the unplanned housing developed by people in the low land areas of the wadi streams have contributed in the occurrence of such flash floods. The flood modeling is a useful tool to identify the inundation areas caused by the flood. In this study, an integration of the hydrologic and hydraulic modeling using WMS, HEC-HMS, HEC-RAS and supported by GIS software has been implemented. The results show that the measured rainfall from King Abdulaziz Airport station is 70mm, while the estimated from rainfall satellite
