|Topic||Rivers drainage and flooding|
This course is targeted at local authorities, with the objective of helping participants understand the fundamental hydrological and hydraulic modelling issues necessary to undertake a robust review of flood risk model outputs and surface water drainage design submissions for planning. Current software facility and visualisation tools can often enhance understanding but can also lead to a reduced reliance on technical appreciation; and to rigorous model schematisation, parameterisation and numerical model output checks being overlooked.
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.
The course does not provide training in or reference to specific proprietary pieces of modelling software and associated parameters. Instead, the focus is on generic model concepts, objectives and outputs.
The course principles will be communicated via a series of presentations supported by a series of linked delegate exercises. Exercises on SuDS implementation will use the tools on the uksuds.com website.
Those responsible for reviewing river modelling outputs as part of flood risk assessment and surface water conceptual drainage design submissions for planning.
At the end of the course participants will have:
