This paper presents an overview and review of methods developed for loss of life estimation in flood risk assessment. These methods range from empirical to simulation based approaches that are used to support flood risk analyses and emergency management. Similarities and differences between the modelling approaches, input and output types and...

Both in the USA and in the Netherlands, extensive studies on approaches for identifying flood risks (the combination of levee failure probabilities and consequences) are ongoing. A related topic concerns evacuation and emergency management (EEM). The magnitude of life loss is directly influenced by the effectiveness of EEM. Different models can...

In the Netherlands, USA and other countries methods for the analysis of loss of life and evacuation associated with flooding are used in flood risk management. This paper compares the methods from the US and Netherlands in this field and considers both methodological principles as well as the outcomes for various case studies. Similarities and...

This paper presents an assessment of the multi-layered safety system in Tohoku, Japan based on the tsunami disaster of March 2011. The performed analysis has been based on data provided by local researchers and field observations. First an overview of the tsunami behaviour along the affected coastline of Tohoku is presented, which shows clearly...

The Dutch government is in the process of revising its flood safety policy. The current safety standards for flood defences in the Netherlands are largely based on the outcomes of cost-benefit analyses. Loss of life has not been considered separately in the choice for current standards. This article presents the results of a research project...

The new flood safety approach for the Netherlands includes, besides the probability of extreme water levels, other type of dike failures and the consequences of a flood. The consequences of a flood are economic damage, materialistic damage and the number of fatalities. To determine the possible number of fatalities during a flood, fatality...

De provincie Friesland wil een meer gestructureerde aanpak voor de bepaling van de hoogtes van boezemkades. Om goed te kunnen dimensioneren is een gedetailleerd model nodig met maatgevende waterstanden. Het huidige model, gemaakt door het Wetterskip Fryslân, is gebaseerd op 37 meetpunten verspreid over Friesland. Met de metingen zijn voor de...
