Simulation of Thailand Flood 2011

S. Wongsa
Abstract—In the 2011, severe flooding occurred in Chao Phraya River Basin during monsoon season was the worst flooding in seventy-two years. The accumulated rainfall from January to October 2011 was approximately 35% higher than the average years. The overall damage from the floods amounted to THB 1.44 trillion, which ranked as the world’s fourth costliest natural disaster. The iRIC (International River Interface Cooperative) model has been used to investigate the Thailand Central Region Flood 2011. Some simulation results compared with field measured flood depth and satellite data are presented to demonstrate applicability of the model. Good performances of simulated results were observed in both flow fields and flood propagations.

Index Terms—Chao phraya river basin, iRIC, Thailand flood.
