Urban Floods


Brazil has been faced with many problems regarding urban floods. In order to predict and prevent the devastating impacts that these events might have on society many computer models have been used in the past decades. The main objective of this work was to do a literature review of the models used in Brazil for urban floods. We surveyed data found in Brazilian literature, using only virtual bases. We finally selected fifteen papers written in Portuguese and analyzed their results and coefficients of efficiency. Most papers were published in the Revista Brasileira de Recursos Hídricos after the year 2000, and there were 15 different models used. We could illustrate the models and their applications in Brazil, however there were few papers in Portuguese and we should expand our search to include the works published in international journals as well.
