Abstract: Flood is one of the major natural disasters that threatens many human lives and causes significant economic losses globally every year. The design and performance analysis of a flood defense system are complex decision-making processes involving multiple criteria and uncertainties. This paper presents an over view of risk-based design procedure and offers possible means to extend from its present form of application to multi-criteria decision-making framework.
