Quantitative Risk Assessment and Technology Transfer: Software Developmentsby Charles Yoe, Coll of Notre Dame of Maryland, Baltimore, United States,
Abstract: A risk-based adaptation of the hydroeconomic model for estimating the expected annual damages of floods is presented in a spreadsheet environment. The model demonstrates how commercially available software has made heretofore complex models of physical systems quite straightforward. The model is expanded to include human behavioral responses to flood forecast and warning systems, facilitating the estimation of benefits to these systems.
