Abstract

A wave propagation model is applied to Tagus river, built in the Flood Surveillance and Warning System (FSWS), developed by the Portuguese Water Institute (INAG). The purpose of this project, beyond simple wave propagation modelling, was to integrate modelling in the FSWS, minimising user interference: the modelling system should be able to maintain it automatically and overcome input data difficulties, minimising mathematical instability and providing an effective tool for flood forecast and warning. The model is set to run at regular time intervals, producing results accordingly. These time intervals may be changed depe
