ABSTRACT
Flood risk for roads in Râmna’s catchment. The article presents the flood risk for roads in Râmna’s catchment. The main analysis is conducted in an area that includes Gura Caliţei and Dragosloveni villages and which has been severely affected by July 2005 floods. In sub-Carpathian catchment area roads are underdeveloped, with high vulnerability due to the materials that they are constructed of (many of earth), their narrowness, their areas with subcalibrated bridges. The risk analysis was performed taking into account the historical flood of 2005. Hazard maps, flood vulnerability and flood risk maps have been made for road infrastructure. They are fundamental in making emergency management plans. With the help of this maps the most vulnerable points of the roads in that area, were found. They are represented by the areas of bridges.
