BMT presents the latest in flood risk modelling at FRM2021

BMT’s Duncan Kitts will present the latest developments in 2D flood modelling on February 2nd at 11:15 (GMT) at Sniffer’s annual Flood Risk Management conference, FRM2021.

The presentation will review hydraulic modelling over the last 50 years and provide a look at recent software improvements. These developments will shape the future of hydraulic modelling and its application in flood risk management.

Duncan Kitts, Principal Scientist at BMT and part of the TUFLOW team said,

“Hydraulic modelling has developed significantly over the last 50 years and what was thought aspirational 10-15 years ago is now the norm.

Hydraulic modelling can now be used to accurately assess surface water, fluvial and other flooding sources – often simultaneously and on large spatial scales. The recent advances we have developed within TUFLOW have far-reaching and wide-ranging benefits, from modelling of natural flood management through to determining expected property flood damages.”

FRM2021 is Scotland’s leading flood risk management conference, hosted by Sniffer, an independent charity that promotes scientific research on the protection and enhancement of the natural environment. This year’s conference will be a virtual event, spreading the usual 2-day packed conference programme across 5 days from February 1st through to February 5th.
