Coastal Flood Modelling using TUFLOW

1 day

This course describes approaches to flood inundation mapping using numerical models in the coastal zone. It provides a background to numerical models (2D hydrodynamic models, 1D-2D hydrodynamic models) and their practical applications. It will introduce the TUFLOW software and through a series of tutorials describe how to run a TUFLOW model, view and analyse the results, and modify the model. It provides a discussion on model calibration and finally considers how you evaluate the quality of a model.

This course could lead on to the Introduction to 1D/2D Modelling using Flood Modeller and TUFLOW course.

Who should attend?

The course is designed for both a technical audience or those wanting to increase their knowledge of numerical modelling in the coastal zone. It is applicable for engineers and scientists undertaking flood mapping projects, coastal flood risk assessments, or those working in the coastal zone. Equally, those reviewing submitted model outputs, studies or reports would benefit from the course.

Course objectives

Understand 1D-2D modelling principles, governing equations and basic parameters 

Have the ability to run, modify, view and analyse the results of a simple TUFLOW model

Have an understanding of the importance of model calibration and the uncertainties and limitations involved in flood inundation modelling
