Quantifying residual uncertainty in modelling
Wednesday 6th July at 12:00 BST
Hydraulic models are an essential tool when developing flood management schemes, informing many key aspects of design. No matter how much work is undertaken, however many simulations run, there will always remain inherent uncertainties in results.
Understanding this uncertainty is important to ensure flood defences perform as needed during a flood, giving confidence to operators and the community.
In this webinar, Adam Parkes, Head of Discipline for Hydrology at Jacobs, will provide an overview of the UK guidance on quantifying residual uncertainty in modelling. He will use case studies to demonstrate how the guidance can be applied, discuss its impact on scheme design and appraisal, areas of potential improvement and the challenges this presents to the industry.
