IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Development of an emergency evacuation system for comprechensive disaster prevention countermeasures

ABSTRACT
Multi-environment zones (i.e. areas with various geographical risk factors) have very high potential for disaster. In addition,
recent natural disasters have occurred due to complex sets of factors according to the debris flow and urban inundation in
multiple-environment zones of urban areas with high and low mountainous areas. In order to mitigate these disasters more
effectively by a countermeasure, it is necessary to investigate what causes damage from natural disasters. However, it is
very difficult to predict disasters in the foreseeable future as well as to analyse the cause of disasters. Therefore,
emergency evacuation system should be established by feedback from past disasters. The objectives of this study are to
estimate the risk evaluation index according to 2-D debris flow with 2-D urban inundation models, to determine the PMP
(probable maximum precipitation) and run-off discharge due to the DAD (Depth-Area-Duration) analysis to estimate the
external force condition. Finally, multi-hazard risk maps, evacuation plans and evacuation route maps combining both
disasters according to the emergency evacuation scenario (EES) are proposed by a Geographic Information System
(GIS).
