A geospatial modelling approach to assess flooding risk under future scenarios of urban form

Lead Research Organisation: Newcastle University
Department Name: Sch of Engineering


My PhD project aims to simulate future road network layouts, land-use, density and building types to develop a more accurate representation of future spatial structure and character of urban areas. The simulated urban form output will then be applied to a flood risk simulation to understand how future urban development scenarios will impact on flooding in urban areas. The approach will involve advanced geosimulations, artificial intelligence algorithms and hydrodynamic modelling to assess how flood risk is exacerbated under different urban form scenarios. This project will enhance more community-level knowledge and resilience to urban growth in the context of flood risk.
