Definition and possible uses

Several features of a model of built asset can be easily modified, either automatically or manually. Changing these features produces variants of the initial model that have the same geometry. The features that can be modified are:

  • the building materials;
  • the contents;
  • the protection.

At the time of writing, the building materials can be modified using floodam.building, whereas the contents and protection must be changed manually.

A set of model variants can be used to explore the influence of the varying features on damage, but also to better represent real built assets, and thus better estimate their vulnerability to floods.
