Take your flood modelling a step further

This two-day, hands-on course aims to teach you how to improve your flood modelling projects by using flexible meshes. The emphasis is on the added value of using flexible meshes compared to rectangular grids. However, advanced features of MIKE 21 FM and MIKE FLOOD for riverine and urban floods are also included. Time is dedicated to address your issues from your own experience.

Flooding often occurs as a result of high rainfall intensity in the catchment area, insufficient storm drainage capacity, river overflows, dam/dike breach, storm surge or as a combination of these phenomena. The risks of flooding are amplified by the expected effects of climate change. 

MIKE FLOOD is a comprehensive modelling package covering all major aspects of flood modelling and is a tool for understanding flooding, analysing scenarios and testing mitigation measures. MIKE FLOOD integrates flood plains, streets, rivers, and littoral and sewer/storm water systems into one package.
