HAZUS®MH MR4 Flood Model Technical Manual

Main Content
The flood loss estimation methodology consists of two modules that carry out basic analytical processes: flood hazard analysis and flood loss estimation analysis. The flood hazard analysis module uses characteristics, such as frequency, discharge, and ground elevation to estimate flood depth, flood elevation, and flow velocity. It also allows for depth grid imports. The flood loss estimation module calculates physical damage and economic loss from the results of the hazard analysis. New in MR4: Capability to import HEC-RAS 4.0.1 floating point binary (.FLT) depth grids into HAZUS Flood Model; Updated nationwide NFIP Entry Date by Census Block: Updated schools and vehicles databases; and, Fixes for 63 bugs. This manual provides guidance for using the Flood Model.
