Introduction to 2D modelling

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

Course description

Sign up for our introductory one-day 2D modelling course which is designed to expand upon your existing 1D modelling skills. You'll be focusing on using Flood Modeller's ADI, TVD and FAST 2D solvers, as well as linking these to the 1D solver. 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 appreciate the pros and cons of 2D modelling and the data required in order to undertake it. You will have a good understanding of the 2D functionality (ADI, TVD and FAST solvers) within the software and know when it is applicable to apply each solver. You will be able to use the software for a variety of modelling applications where full 2D or 1D-2D linked models are required. You will also learn how to post-process results to effectively visualise outputs.

Course structure

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

An overview of Flood Modeller

ADI, TVD and FAST solvers

How to build and run 2D models

Costal inundation modelling

Post-processing results

Integrating 1D and 2D flood maps

Multiple domain modelling

Troubleshooting toolkit

Incorporating structures

Additional information

This course assumes a basic understanding of 1D modelling using Flood Modeller. It is aimed at users who want to learn about 2D modelling techniques, including overland flows, breach and culvert modelling.

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).

"Thank you for delivering the 2D modelling using Flood Modeller training course. The course has set us up to make the jump from 1D to 1D-2D modelling. Even having travelled from Ireland the course represented good value."
