Rainfall Runoff Modelling using ReFH

Cost: 
£275.00
Duration: 
1.0 day(s)

Overview


The Revitalised Flood Hydrograph Method (ReFH) is a technique for estimating design hydrographs, designed to overcome many of the problems and limitations of the FEH rainfall-runoff method.  It has superseded the FEH rainfall-runoff method for most applications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.   The course covers ReFH in detail.


Who should attend


The course is designed for those who already have some understanding of FEH methods (for example, through attending a Flood Estimation Handbook course) and would like to update their knowledge to the latest methods and guidance.


Course outcomes


Delegates will have a more detailed understanding of the theory behind ReFH and the ReFH Design Flood Modelling Software.
