The quantification of vulnerability depends on the susceptibleness of ‘elements at risk’. It is termed because the degree of loss to a given part at a given severity level. It’s sometimes expressed on a scale zero to one unit. The current study considers ‘depth of inundation’ because the main parameter for assessing flood injury functions for croplands and rural settlements. The study any considers the direct economic damages of floods. Considering depth because the flood injury parameter, depth–damage relationships was developed for various parts at risk crops and settlements. Depth–damage relationship presents info on the link of flood injury of an exact part to an exact depth of flooding.

In this study, for developing depth–damage relationship for crop, the flood injury knowledge were collected from completely different secondary literature and organizations, and intensive interviews with the native individuals were conducted as a part of the form survey. a complete of a hundred and twenty native individuals as well as farmers, fishermen, and little businessperson from the study website were interviewed as unit basis. A form survey was most popular for this interview session because it provides insight into the knowledge of inundation depth and associated flood damages. The survey was conducted following a sampling technique to pick out respondents for the unit interviews. The structured form was initial pre-tested in fifteen every which way elite households. Then, modifications were created before the particular interviews of the sampled households. to boot, the form was administered to respondents UN agency were aged twenty years and on top of, had lived within the several space for a minimum of fifteen years, and were main call manufacturers within the unit, and/or, within the absence of a family head, it absolutely was created with applicable representative and knowledgeable member of the unit. The form survey coated the native perceptions on crop and settlement damages related to completely different exceptional flood events like 1988, 1998, 2004 and 2007 moreover as collected info on injury corresponding inundation depths. Injury was assessed in terms of the quantity of cash bestowed as share of the overall production worth necessary to recover the first production. Supported this flood depth–damage info from form survey, depth–damage curve was developed.

For developing the depth–damage relationship for settlement, a valuation survey was conducted for the settlement vulnerability assessment. Following the study by Islam, settlements were classified into four varieties like brick floor–brick wall, brick floor–CI sheet wall, mud floor–CI sheet wall, and dust floor–mud wall. For the chosen properties, the survey quantified the injury of all things thanks to flood and their current worth supported sort, quality and degree of damage. This enclosed info on the peak on top of the ground of every item or the peak taken as commonplace from house to deal with. The knowledge for all samples of every part category was then averaged and stage-damage curves were made.

As risk may be a combination of hazard, vulnerability and exposure, within the final step of risk assessment, the expected injury of the danger part was calculable initial by combining replacement values assessed for the weather so following the stage-damage operate. The subsequent equations were followed to estimate expected injury.
