Project Title 3D Hydrodynamic Flood Simulator (3D Hydro FloodSim)
Project Category Invention
Abstract 3D Hydro-FloodSim is a flood simulator which simulates a flood scene in a 3D computer model by utilizing Geographic Information System (GIS), river hydrographic survey and also hydrology data. Recently we have been troubled with flooding issues all over Malaysia including Shah Alam (Selangor), Manek Urai (Kelantan), Penampang (Sabah) and Sibu (Sarawak). However, seeing how we react during the flood occurrences and the fact that this continuing problem is hard to be resolved are what makes such model more significant to be developed and applied in the field. Those inundated areas have brought serious damages and losses of properties to the citizens. It is mainly due to the overflow from river banks especially in rainy season. With this 3D model, it will be easier for town planning management to be conducted especially for the related agencies to identify the low-lying areas which are exposed to the flood risk, so that they could prepare sufficient evacuation route and serve as a flood warning system for the public. In addition to that, this model could help to find alternatives for flood mitigation, instead of depending too much on the conventional hard curative measures. We believe that this model is a must-have product that needs to be developed extensively as to reduce the impact of flood or as a measure to prevent flood in the future so that it could reduce the disastrous impact of flood toward the nation and human lives. Also, it enhances the development of both state and nation.
