Abstract: The matter-element model of integrated risk assessment for flood control systems is established with matter-element analysis theory and correlative function of extension set, on the basis of classification of flood situations and risk indexes of typical flood control works. By this model, quantitative indexes of integrated risk assessment can be derived for flood control systems on a basin or regional scale. A case study proves its practicality, rationality and effectiveness.

Keywords: risk assessment; integrated risk; flood control systems; matter-element model.
