Flood Modelling for Managers

Flood Modelling for Managers

This masterclass is an intensely practical guide on flood modelling for non-modellers. The masterclass will explore modelling software, the application of this software, data and the scoping and managing of flood modelling projects from a non-technical perspective. The masterclass will also provide practical guidance on common mistakes made by modellers that non-technical staff can check for along with flood modelling case studies with lessons learnt and a manger’s modelling checklist.

At the end of this 2-day masterclass you will have a better understanding of:

  • Flood Modelling Fundamentals;
  • Common hydrologic and hydraulic modelling packages;
  • The role of direct rainfall modelling;
  • The role of supporting software such as .batchy, waterRIDE and Crayfish;
  • The role of CFD, GPU and HPC;
  • Fit for purpose modelling – what is appropriate and when;
  • Why modellers are always asking for special IT privileges;
  • Common mistakes made by modellers that you can check for;
  • How you can see what’s in the model and the model results.
  • How long a flood modelling project should take and what the budget should be;
  • How to scope projects to get the outcome you intended;
  • Common project risks and how to manage these;
  • Common exclusions applied by consultants; and
