Abstract
The floods due to dam failure usually do great harm to human beings and social economy. The aim of this paper is to apply geographical information system (GIS) technology, and the loss estimation model to estimate the loss of the hypothetical dam break in Lushui reservoir basin. The general predictive loss evaluation scheme of dam-break flood is illustrated. The empirical formula method is used to determine the flood submerged region. The final loss assessment result is mapped out on GIS software. The result shows that the combination of GIS and loss estimation model can make the overall procedure for loss assessment efficient and effective, which could do favor to long-term basin flood control planning and disaster preparedness.
