2D flood modeling interprets the 2D equations of flow to find out the water depth and depth-averaged velocity on a grid or mesh. It uses digital terrain modeling and bathymetry of a water channel in the question to outline the 2D-flow of an expected flood. This course will examine how use 2D flood modelling for urban areas. It will also provides an overview of the elements and processes involved in the urban drainage systems and provides guidance on solving routine as well as exceptional issues associated with water management in urban environments. Topics covered include gutter flow, roadway inlet interception, storm drain systems, detention ponds, and storm water management.

Learning Objectives

➤ Understanding of basic 2D flood hydraulic modeling and applications.
➤ Basic theory and knowledge of unsteady flow hydraulics
➤ Determine runoff (peak flows and volumes) from urban watersheds
➤ Identify the hydrologic cycle processes most important to transportation hydraulic engineering.
➤ Learn the basics of storm water management
➤ Apply basic hydraulic principles to urban drainage design

Target Audience

➤ National /State Road & Transport Engineers
➤ Highway Engineers and Managers
➤ Hydraulics personnel
➤ Private Consultants & Contractors
