Using a Laser Scanning to Construct a 3D Numerical Model to Study the Flooding Risk in Urban Area

R. E. Meouche, M. Rezoug, W. Vandevenne, and R. Hamzaoui
Abstract—Risk studies are very important to avoid human and economic losses. However the study cost becomes very expensive in some case when the site scale is very large. That’s why; using a numerical simulation with a small-scale model is considered as a suitable solution. In order to have accurate results on which we can rely to assess the risk, it is necessary to use sophisticated means to simulate with a high efficiency the study area. One of the very accurate means able to do that is based on laser scanning techniques. This article describes how a 3D laser scanning can provide quickly and accurately a 3D model of the study area reduced model for the risk simulation step. Moreover, the necessary processing steps in the laser software named Geomagic v12, are highlighted to achieve a neat 3-D model. The article also describes the preparation of the model for the numerical simulation step.

Index Terms—3D laser scanner, processing data, 3D modeling, simulation.
