Completed research projects
Swedish Pluvial Modelling Analysis and Safety Handling (SPLASH)
Centre for Societal Risk Research (CSR) lead this interdisciplinary research project on disaster modeling, focusing on flood risks in close collaboration with four companies. The project had three main objectives: (i) To develop methods for disaster modelling, including descriptions of precipitation, exposure and potential damage, (ii) To develop a secure method for managing insurance data on flood damage in order to better understand the relationship between precipitation and damage, and (iii) The establishment of an arena for cooperation between academia, insurance trade association, and authorities in the blue light sector in order to reduce disaster risk in Sweden on a long-term basis. The work contributed to a better picture of the incurred costs in the event of heavy precipitation, which is needed for effective long-term prevention work. The project used Jönköping as a case study to conduct analyses of events and future risks.
