Course description

Attend our introductory training course to gain an overview of the 1D urban modelling techniques available within Flood Modeller.

The training course is provided through a series of presentations, practical exercises and additional self-learning materials, which include complementary training videos.

Learning objectives

By the end of this course, you will understand the 1D urban modelling capabilities of Flood Modeller and when to apply the software to different types of application.

On completion, you will be able to build, run and review your own urban drainage model, consisting of manholes and pipes. You will also learn how to generate data in multiple formats.

You will also understand how to integrate the 1D urban solver with Flood Modeller’s 1D river solver to model channels, or its 2D solver to model surface water flow.

Course structure

You will cover a range of topics through the training, including:


  • Introduction to 1D urban modelling

  • Building a 1D urban model (consisting of manhole, pipes, etc) 

  • Running simulations

  • Adding flow regulation features (weirs, orifice, etc)

  • Analysing and post-processing results

  • Linking the 1D urban solver to Flood Modeller's 1D river and 2D solvers 

Course pre-requisites

This course assumes no prior knowledge of flood modelling and is presented from a practical point of view by expert modellers.

It is recommended that attendees complete the ‘Getting started’ guides prior to the training to ensure the best possible learning experience.

Additional information

Prior to the training, you will receive a detailed document which provides all the information you need to undertake the course, including the agenda, links to the various resources, and details on how to access Flood Modeller.

Each attendee must provide their own laptop to undertake the training. However, a one-month Flood Modeller Standard edition training licence (worth £400) is provided to each attendee.

The course is limited to 8 attendees which ensures our dedicated team of tutors are on hand to give you the support and guidance you need.
