Using theoretical and field studies, computer software programs (VOLNA-4, and MIKE-21, ) and GIS technology, and taking into account the possible accident (destruction) of the Earth Dam with a height of 102 meters, the contours of the riverbed of flooded territories in riverbeds for rivers Aragvi and Mtkvari have been defined in the given article considering the configuration of the water-catchment basins of rivers.
By means of basic differential equations of hydraulics, geometrical dimensions of Zhinvali Earth Dam, hydrological basic parameters of the reservoir, and computer software, the basic hydrodynamic parameters of the destructive wave at the Zhinvali Earth Dam are calculated taking into account the time of flow movement.
Key words: earth dam / accident / flood / risk / flooded territories
