The following case studies provide examples or where Flood Modeller Pro has been applied.

A more extensive selection of case studies is available here

Breach analysis, Scotland

British Waterways Scotland (now trading as Scottish Canals) requested that a breach analysis of Cobbinshaw Reservoir should be carried out to reassess the dam category. Flood Modeller Pro selected as the most appropriate tool due to its 2D TVD solver.

Tidal modelling, England

In order to map flood risk from a potential tidal storm surge propagating up the Lowestoft Estuary and into Lake Lothing, the Flood Modeller 2D ADI solver was used to develop a two-dimensional model to incorporate the estuary, Lake Lothing and the Kirkley Stream channel.

Canal modelling, England

CH2M was commissioned by the Environment Agency in 2015 to investigate the interaction between the Grand Union Canal and the river Ouzel during high flow events at Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, as local residents and the Regional Flood and Coastal Committee expressed concerns over potential flood risk following overtopping of the canal into the Ouzel.

Watershed evaluation, Florida, USA

As part of the Southwest Florida Water Management District’s Watershed Management Program, the District contracted with CH2M to deliver a Watershed Evaluation and Management Plan for the watershed. The 2D FAST solver within Flood Modeller Pro, a rapid flood inundation mapping tool developed by CH2M, was applied to the watershed.
