Features & Benefits
Learn more about the features and benefits of Flood Modeller
Integrated GIS interface
Access an intuitive and customisable GIS interface, allowing you to quickly and easily build, run and analyse your models within a single environment. Manipulate model data to efficiently assess different scenarios, bring your models to life using your own background mapping or your preferred web mapping/feature service or explore your results by interrogating plots or animating flood extents.
Powerful hydraulic simulations
Developed for nearly 50 years, Flood Modeller provides some of the fastest, most accurate and robust solvers available. Independently benchmarked by the Environment Agency and many other organisations, it is trusted by government agencies, utilities, insurers and consultants across the globe.
Advanced 1D and 2D solvers
Our powerful 1D and 2D solvers enable you to model multiple sources of flooding, better understand flood risk and make more informed decisions, whilst removing the need for third-party software. Confidently simulate flows and levels in open channels, canals or reservoirs, model overland flows and depths, calculate surface water run-off or understand the impacts of flooding on a drainage system.
40+ hydraulic structures
An extensive range of structures, including weir, sluice, orifice and bridge types, and control rules, enable you to accurately model the impact of structures and their operation on flows and water levels.
Latest hydrological methods
A range of boundary options provide the flexibility to accurately represent water entering and leaving your models. Within each boundary, Flood Modeller offers a range of options enabling you to tailor your model to your precise requirements.
GPU enabled - For faster results
Access your 2D modelling results fast! Enhance your modelling, by incorporating higher resolution data and larger extents into your models, enabling more accurate and detailed results by harnessing the power of modern GPU hardware.
If you need to import third-party models, automate the linking of your 1D networks and 2D domains, identify and fix data errors or simply visualise and share results, our extensive suite of tools have been specifically designed to improve the productivity and efficiency of your modelling.
Supported and maintained
Flood Modeller offers a comprehensive knowledge base, an extensive training programme and a dedicated support team. Sign up for one of our free webinars to get started!
On-demand cloud computing
Seamlessly integrated with Flood Modeller, Flood Cloud is an innovative service that enables you to run your model simulations in the cloud. It empowers users to run compute-intensive simulations faster, at greater scale, and more cost effectively than ever before.
