Overview of implementation

Figure 1: Overview of floodam

Figure 1 gives a general overview of how floodam.building is designed, making emphasis on data, intermediary outputs, and final output. In the following chapters some details are given on how elementary components and buildings are modelled, on how data are formalized.

Given the geometry of a building, floodam.building also provides a way to easily change its other characteristics (composition, contents, protection), which enables:

  • uncertainty analyses;
  • the estimation of the efficacy and efficiency of adaptation measures at building level.
