ABSTRACT
Dam-break flood is one of the difficulties in the field of flood control and disaster reduction because of its strong
emergent and high hazardous characteristics. So it is of great significance to simulate dam break flood routing.
However, the numerical result is not very intuitive in traditional two-dimensional dam-break flood simulation system. For
this purpose, this paper proposes a three-dimensional visualization system of dam-break flood routing based on Google
Earth.
First, according to the DEM data of reservoir area and the measurement data of reservoir, we establish a twodimensional
dam-break flood hydrodynamic model, and get the distribution of flooded depth on every moment using
numerical simulation software MIKE. After that, the system can quickly convert the calculated results to dynamic
presentation file in KML format, and load them into the three-dimensional visual interface based on Google Earth and
C#, in order to achieve the effect of dam-break flood routing. Meanwhile the system creates a database to save the
information of reservoirs and flood situation using MySQL technology, and build detailed modeling for the main area
using SketchUP software to strengthen the reality.
The 3D visualization system of dam-break flood routing based on Google Earth has realized the three-dimensional
environment scene roaming and the view of reservoir information, and can dynamically demonstrate dam flood evolution
process, providing the operation of query and analysis of flood information, and other functions. The system can provide
intuitive and accurate decision support information for decision-makers, so as to reduce the dam break flood disaster.
