River Modelling and Drainage Assessment for Flood Risk Management

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 - 09:00 to Wednesday, January 24, 2018 - 17:00
Howbery Park, Wallingford

This course is targeted at local authorities, with the objective of helping participants understand the fundamental hydrological and hydraulic modelling issues necessary for the delivery of robust flood risk (FRA) and drainage impact assessments (DIA) / conceptual drainage designs. Current software facility and visualisation tools can often enhance understanding but can also lead to a reduced reliance on technical comprehension; and to rigorous model schematisation, parameterisation and numerical model output checks being overlooked. The course will benefit those responsible for reviewing river modelling outputs as part of flood risk assessment and drainage impact assessments for planning.

The standard delegate fee is £599 (excluding VAT at 20%), this includes all documentation, lunch and refreshments.
