Stormwater Flood Modelling & Management (XPSWMM & XPSTORM)

Tasmania, Australia - June 20-21, 2018

Registration sign-in at 8:30AM on the first day

Training from 9:00AM – 5:00PM

Attendance at this workshop will provide a certificate of completion for 7 Professional Development Hours per day.

About the workshop:

This class will focus on stormwater modelling, starting with basic hydrology and hydraulics on the first-half of day one. The second part of day will focus on the advanced hydraulic functions and tools such as dual drainage and detention. The second day will delve into 1D river modelling and integrated 1D/2D modelling.

Innovyze Workshops cater to a variety of skill levels. However, to make the best use of class time it is recommended that anyone who attends a training go through the Getting Started Manual for xpswmm/xpstorm. This requires access to a licence of the software. If you do not have access to a licence, please contact us.
