This report describes the implementation of the hydrodynamic model for the Burhi-Gandak basin that constitutes the principal activity of Component I ‘Flood Risk Modeling and Mapping. The report describes principal architectural choices which were made during the design phase of the model, including their technical justification. The report describes in detail how particular hydraulic situations have been represented in the model, and how the model was tailored to meet specific requirements of the study. The report also includes a technical description of the SOBEK 1D model and the NAM hydrological model.
