Two-dimensional hydraulic modelling of the tully river
Author : A. Joorabchi1, D. Pokarier1, R. Ayre1 and G. Rodger2
A dam break study was carried out in order to investigate impact of Koombooloomba Dam failure on the Tully River catchment downstream of the dam. Complex features such as a steep gorge, waterfall, numerous bridges and structures, floodplain in combination with size of study domain and high intensity of precipitation on the catchment made the project very challenging and interesting. A two-dimensional MIKE-Flood model consisting of five combined models were utilised to simulate various flood events. Although the chance of a dam failure is extremely low, local people would most benefit from this study as it used to update the Emergency Action Plan for Koombooloomba Dam.
