Jacobs will officially launch its new Flood Cloud service for HEC-RAS users in early 2018, allowing users to seamlessly undertake flood risk modeling in the cloud. The ability to run HEC-RAS models comes hot off the success of Flood Cloud for running Flood Modeller and linked TUFLOW models.

Attendees of our recent hit webinar, ‘Getting More From Your HEC-RAS Models’ received an early preview of the latest service.

Flood Cloud is powered by the Parallel Works platform and uses ‘the cloud’ to provide the on-demand computational resource required to deliver quicker results. It enables more scenarios to be run to support smarter flood management decisions and improved confidence in model results.

"We're proud to provide HEC-RAS users across the globe with access to an on-demand, cloud-based resource that takes the next step toward better flood management," said Dr. Jon Wicks, Technical Director for Flood Modeller.

In line with the release of Flood Cloud for HEC-RAS models, Dr. Jon Wicks, Technical Director for Flood Modeller, will be delivering a free webinar on Tuesday 24th April at 12:30 BST and 18:00 BST (13:00 EDT and 12:00 CDT) to walk users through the basics of how to best use the new service. The webinar will discuss how to:

  • Enhance flood models
  • Run more scenarios to enable better flood management decisions
  • Improve the understanding of confidence in model results
  • Access superior computational power to help beat project deadlines

Dr. Jon Wicks has over 25 years of international post-doctoral experience. A key part of Jon’s role is to work at the interface of flood modelling research, software development and customer requirements to ensure that innovative, efficient and effective tools are developed and used to improve the management of flood risk.
