This course is aimed at practitioners and staff responsible for formulating and reviewing hydraulic models. It provides best practice guidance on the standards that should be used when carrying out computer modelling of watercourses for flood risk management purposes.

Summary

A model is an idealisation of the real-life situation which it represents. The key principal of modelling is to ensure that the representation is sufficient for the purpose for which it will be used. Over the past 15 years hydraulic modelling software used in flood risk management studies has become increasingly easy to use. However, the increased user friendliness, flexibility and choice of software can, unfortunately, lead to inconsistency in the approach and quality of hydraulic modelling undertaken.

This course provides an overview of river modelling software widely used in the UK, together with their advantages and disadvantages.
