Stormwater & Flood Modelling Management

Training Course

This course will focus on stormwater modelling, starting with basic hydrology and hydraulics on the first-half of day one. The second part of the 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 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.
