Hydrography and hydraulic power software set up for flood control in the Red River Delta

Floods, a dangerous natural calamity, occur in the Red River Delta annually and controlling floods need more attention and research. The research group for floods of the Institute of Mechanics, the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology set up tools to provide for flood control in the Red River Delta and Thai Binh River.

The software was linked together to establish tools to provide for specific problems of flood control in general and flood control in the Red River Delta in particular and was asserted through application results. These tools allow:

•    To forecast the flow into water reservoirs at the upper reaches of the Red River system
•    To manage the system of water reservoirs: Son La, Hoa Binh, Thac Ba, and Tuyen Quang
•    To forecast the water level and flow at important locations in the lowlands: Hanoi, Pha Lai

Among these tools, hydrography and hydraulic power software play the key role.

•    The hydrography model plays to collect water on the vally surface from rain to main rivers. The model is one of the leading tools for flood forecast and control and it was set up, tested and tapped.


Forecast results  36 hours before the flow into Hoa Binh lake for  the flood season 2008


•    The hydraulic power model plays to collect water from the hydrography software and calculate the flow stream on the river system


Forecast results 48 hours before the flow into Hoa Binh lake  by IMECH_MARINE for the historical flood from July 4th to 10th, 2009
