Short summary
Floods in urban environments cause substantial damage. Urban flood risk management requires a reliable knowledge of flood hazard, including the flow characteristics in urbanized floodplains. Here we present numerical simulations of flooding in an urban district. The computations are compared against experimental observations obtained from a remarkable laboratory set-up, representing an urban district with 14 streets and 49 crossroads. Data provide a unique benchmark for other numerical models.
