German experience in stage-damage curves

Systematic collecting of flood damage data in Germany started in 1985. Until now more of 3.200 objects and damage caused by flood are processed. With software system HOWAS it is possible to collect flood damage data after specific use, regional and hydrologic criteria. This data can be selected, linked and finally evaluated. For details on evaluation please use the link.

The program system HOWAS includes four parts: 

  • data input and data correction 
  • data administration
  • data selection and data linkage and  
  • evaluation 

The results can be stored for subsequent treatment with other programs. The structure and all functions of HOWAS are dependant on the different kinds of buildings or surfaces.

  • damage functions of IKSE, Elbe 
  • damage functions of IKSR, Rhine
