Research Interests


• Catchment hydrology
• Hydrology/hydraulic modeling
• Flood risk mitigation
• Water resources management


Rasmiaditya’s research field is in hydrology/hydraulic modeling with interests primarily focus on surface flow modeling and flood risk mitigation. Her research projects were done under the Water Resources Engineering Research Group of Institut Teknologi Bandung which include 1D flood propagation modeling of Ciliwung River and 2D numerical and physical modeling of dam break flow. The 1D Ciliwung flood model was performed using HEC-RAS and verified with field survey data. The surface flow modeling then was incorporated to flood risk mitigation research to develop flood risk map for Jakarta city. The 2D dam break flow numerical modeling was developed by solving 2D St. Venant flow equations with finite difference Mac Cormack scheme, where the results were then compared with physical model experiments in hydraulic laboratory.


Key Facts


Rasmiaditya obtained a bachelor degree in Civil Engineering from Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB), Indonesia. She then completed a Master of Science in Civil Engineering concentrating in Water Resources Engineering research from the same university. The thesis topic was “2D Surface Runoff Modeling of Dam Break Flow in Housing Area.” Following graduation, she began to work in Water Resources Engineering Research Group in ITB as a research and project assistant performing hydrology/hydraulic analysis for research projects such as flood risk map development and flood propagation modeling, and also social service projects such as designing plantation drainage and erosion control structure in rivers.
