Abstract : This research presents a computer-based scheme for evaluating land use and engineering alternatives for flood plain management and includes a test application. The management alternatives considered in the report include spatial and temporal distribution of urban land uses, site elevation through dirt fill, flood proofing, open space, public land acquisition and engineering measures. A linear programming approach is employed for the study. (Modified author abstract)
