Introduction to Flood Modeller

JBA River Hydraulics and Modelling training course

This two day course will give you an introduction to 1D and 2D hydraulic modelling using the Flood Modeller suite. Practical exercises based on actual case studies will be used as an integral part of the teaching.

You will have access to the Flood Modeller software for the course. You will be provided with example data files and worked solutions.

Register your interest

This course is aimed at managers, engineers and modellers requiring an overview of the capabilities of the Flood Modeller system and practical tuition on the use of Flood Modeller.

By the end of this course you will have an overview of the Flood Modeller software and be able to use the software to build and run 1D and 2D hydrodynamic models.
