About this course

Type Classroom training
Level Intermediate
Duration 2 days
Topic Rivers drainage and flooding

Accreditated by

Understand the fundamental hydrological and hydraulic modelling issues necessary for the delivery of robust flood risk and drainage impact assessments.

Summary

This course is targeted at local authorities, with the objective of helping participants understand the fundamental hydrological and hydraulic modelling issues necessary for the delivery of robust flood risk (FRA) and drainage impact assessments (DIA) / conceptual drainage designs. Current software facility and visualisation tools can often enhance understanding but can also lead to a reduced reliance on technical comprehension; and to rigorous model schematisation, parameterisation and numerical model output checks being overlooked.

Content

This course will describe the key requirements of FRAs and DIAs and set these in the context of strategic planning processes. The course will cover:

A key focus will be on developing an understanding of the necessary review processes and review elements to ensure that the modelling represents the correct hydrological and hydraulic processes; that model inputs are appropriate and sufficiently accurate; that model outputs look sensible and usable; and that the process follows best practice guidance.

Who should attend?

Those responsible for reviewing river modelling outputs as part of flood risk assessment and drainage impact assessments for planning.
