Introduction to 1D river modelling

Learn key modelling techniques and discover tools and features to enhance your skills

Course description

Attend our two-day training course to gain a clear overview of the 1D modelling techniques available within Flood Modeller. It will allow you to familiarise yourself with the various tools and features available within the software, allowing you to build and run your own model. Delivered by an expert modeller, the training is provided through a series of presentations, hands-on practicals and open discussion sessions. Each session is limited to 8 attendees to give the best possible learning experience.

Learning objectives

By the end of this course, you will understand the capabilities of Flood Modeller and when to apply it to different types of application. The course will provide an overview of the key features, streamlined workflows and user-friendly interface within the software. On completion, you will be able to build, run and review you own 1D model and generate data in multiple formats (e.g. maps and animations).

Course structure

You will cover a range of topics throughout the training which include:

An overview of Flood Modeller

Components of a Flood Modeller project

How to build and run 1D flood models

1D floodplain modelling

Using model results to share outputs

Undertaking unsteady simulations

How to incorporate river structures

Quality assurance and housekeeping

Hydrological tools

Additional information

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

Comprehensive course notes, practical exercises and additional support material is provided to everybody that attends the course.

Specialist training laptops and software are provided to each attendee allowing you to undertake the training effectively.

Lunch and refreshments are provided throughout the course. The course starts at 09:30 and finishes at 17:00.

This course is approved by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management and attendance will contribute toward your continuing professional development (CPD).

"The Flood Modeller training course was a great experience which has provided me with a more in-depth knowledge of model construction and diagnostics for complex systems. I look forward to putting this into practice with projects to demonstrate the specialist expertise that Envireau Water's surface water team has."
