dc.description.abstractAbstract: This report provides a comparative evaluation of several leading state-of-the-art models for dam-breach flood forecasting. Nine alternative models were applied using data sets from four case studies. Results obtained were compared between models and with available measured data. Model accuracy, versatility, and ease-of-use were evaluated, and complexities and weaknesses were identified. The sensitivity of model results to various input data parameters was also investigated. The quantitative results documented by the report provide an empirical data base for analyzing the performance of the models under various conditions.en_US
