The present paper looks at the application of modern technology of numerical modelling to simulate natural and human-induced river floods of residential areas. The modelling is based on the use of 2D shallow-water equations and 3D digital terrain models. The application of adaptive mesh generator and effective algorithms of parallel computing using NVIDIA graphics processors with CUDA technology enables calculating the areas and depths of flooding in a big city, taking into account all residential, industrial, and road constructions. Each one of them is specifically singled out on the mesh. This enables the reproduction of the real course of a flood well.
