The course is aimed at providing the most up-to-date information on the topic of urban flood modelling and disaster management and to enable participants to be more effective in applying modelling tools and techniques for urban flood management. The purpose of this course is to introduce current theory and practice of flood risk estimation and modelling of floods in urban areas. It provides hands-on practice with industrial standard software.

Who Should Apply

The course is designed for professionals (engineers, scientists and managers/planners) active in the urban water sector, especially those involved in using simulation models for planning of drainage networks and water-related disaster management activities.

Course Objectives

At the end of the course, the participants should be able to:

  • Develop understanding of how to use the models to assess the performance of existing systems and how to design the new ones within the context of different flood risks (pluvial, fluvial, coastal and flash floods)
  • Learn how to produce different flood risk maps in a GIS environment and how to calculate different types of flood damages, and
  • Develop understanding of structural and non-structural flood resilience measures such as, conventional and innovative structures, early warning sys

Methodology

Different modelling approaches are considered and they range from data driven to physically based, from conceptual to detailed 1D-2D modelling. These approaches are then embedded in the wider context of flood risk assessment and disaster management. This wider context considers everything from how the urban planning process should take place in areas with potential flood risks, to urban hydrology, climate change, flood hazards, environmental impacts, public health issues and the conceptual design of flood protection schemes.
