Abstract: China is now on the way of rapid urbanization. Especially, the cities in coastal region and by the major rivers are developing in high speed and facing distinct changes of flood risks. In order to hold variability of flood risk in urbanized areas, urban flood simulation techniques have been developed by IWHR in the last 10 years. In this paper, the progress of urban flood simulation techniques in China is reviewed, and their features are illustrated, taking some case studies of Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Tianjin as examples.
