Course introduction

This one-day course focuses on 2D flood modelling using Flood Modeller. You’ll be focusing on using the ADI, TVD and FAST solvers, in addition to being introduced to 1D-2D linked modelling.

On completion of the training course, you will understand the pros and cons of 2D modelling and the data required in order to undertake it.  You will leave with an understanding of the 2D functionality within the software and know when it is applicable to apply each solver.

You will be able to use the software to build 2D and 1D-2D linked models and understand how to post-process results to effectively visualise outputs.

Typical course structure

The following modules will be delivered throughout the course.

  • An overview of Flood Modeller
  • When to use the ADI, TVD and FAST solvers
  • How to build and run 2D models
  • 1D-2D model linking
  • Post-processing 2D results
  • Integrating 1D and 2D flood maps
  • Multiple domain modelling
  • Coastal inundation modelling
  • Incorporating structures
  • Troubleshooting toolkit

Course prerequisites

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

Prior to attending the training course, we recommend that you download Flood Modeller from our website and become familiar with the user interface. We also suggest that the 1D and 2D quick start guides are completed.

Additional information

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

The training course is presented from a practical point of view by expert modellers and is delivered through a series of presentations, hands-on practicals and open discussion sessions.

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

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

Lunch and refreshments are provided throughout the course.

The course starts at 09:30 and finishes at 17:00.
