This two-day bespoke training course is aimed at those involved in the development and review of hydraulic models and focuses primarily on 2D floodplain representation using TUFLOW.

The course is delivered using Flood Modeller, allowing attendees to utilise a wide range of tools specifically designed to enable the building, running and analysis of flood models.

By the end of the course, attendees should have an understanding of 2D modelling and appreciate the different capabilities and applications of TUFLOW. Attendees should be able to build simple 2D models using TUFLOW.

The course will provide an overview data requirements, model calibration and verification and other aspects relating to the model build process. Details on how to link the 1D solver within Flood Modeller with TUFLOW is also discussed.

Typical course structure

The following modules will be delivered throughout the course.

  • An overview of the Flood Modeller interface
  • Introduction to 2D flood modelling
  • Different applications of 2D modelling
  • Introduction to TUFLOW
  • How to view TUFLOW modelling results
  • How to model structures using TUFLOW
  • Linking TUFLOW to 1D models
  • Flood Modeller and ESTRY comparison
  • Data requirements for 2D modelling
  • Differences between 2D results formats
  • Calibration and verification

  • Defining geographical features

Course prerequisites

The course assumes a basic understanding of 1D modelling and Flood Modeller's user interface.

Additional information

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

It is presented from a practical point of view by expert modellers and 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.

The recommended start time is 09:30, with a finish time of 17:00 on both days.
