Characterization of floods (fluvial, coastal, pluvial, structural failure/overtopping floods)
Flood hazard assessment (magnitude (intensity) and associated exceeding probability)
Vulnerability analysis
Methods for flood mitigation
Flood mitigation economics
1 oral presentation : description of a major flood of the students native countries (Where? When? Why? How? How much? Who? When?)
2 projects : flood design and cost-benefit analysis (application to the Villerest dam on the Loire River) and hydraulic flood propagation (application of HEC-RAS to the the Loire River)
