Gerenciamento de áreas inundáveis

Flooding causes economic and inconvenient damage to a range of interests, including property, business, transportation and buildings may be affected by structural, hydraulic and electrical installations. In commercial and industrial areas, the contact of products and machinery with water is responsible for the greatest losses.

The business interruption in progress and the loss of production also increase the losses, but can be resumed with the end of the flood. In this case the damage is determined mainly by the level reached by the water during the event, the damages caused by sediments and the degree of precautions taken.

AVIX has extensive experience in flood prevention projects, with the determination of critical flows, recurrence periods and simulation of the affected area. The use of mathematical models associated to Geographic Information Systems allows us to generate accurate risk maps, affected areas and escape routes.
