ABSTRACT
Because major and devastating floods have occurred in last decades around the world, the EU member states has developed and implemented Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) and Flood Directive (2007/60/EC). Water Framework Directive and Flood Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council establish the need for preparation of flood risk maps for each member country on each important hydrographic basin. The flood risk management plans must be finalized by end of 2015. These plans should take into account the particular characteristics of the areas they cover and provide for tailored solutions according to the needs and priorities of those areas, whilst ensuring relevant coordination within river basin districts and promoting the achievement of environmental objectives laid down in Community legislation. To achieve flood risk management plans with satisfactory precision requires the use of advanced hydroinformatic tools. The choice of modeling method, the quantity and quality of data and understanding hydraulics of major and minor river bed are very important for the correct application of EU flood directives. Detailed results increase understand and general forecast of floods in major river basins and supports governments, authorities to act (in time and space), according to the plans of action in emergency situations, based on flood risk management plans.
The paper presents the possibilities and advantages of 1D/2D modeling of flow in major and minor river bed. They are described and applied on a river sector advanced hydroinformatic tools MIKE11, MIKE21 and MIKE FLOOD, developed by Danish Hydraulic Institute DHI.
