TUFLOW FV is a 2D/3D flexible mesh, finite volume numerical model that simulates hydrodynamic, sediment transport and water quality processes in oceans, coastal waters, estuaries and rivers. The overview will introduce the concepts of flexible mesh modelling--how it differs from finite difference/fixed grid models (like TUFLOW), the advantages and disadvantages and when to use.
Tips and tricks for modelling urban areas and pipe networks. Manhole energy losses explained and efficient ways of managing and setting up large pipe networks demonstrated. Different approaches for modelling overland areas including buildings and fences in 2D are also presented.
How to make your TUFLOW model output much better! This workshop will give you GIS techniques for producing high quality flood maps, using the new XMDF files, and how to produce impressive 2D and 3D animations using SMS and ArcGIS.
TUFLOW 2012: New Features - Session 4(Download PDF)
Bill Syme will give a brief overview of new features in TUFLOW for 2011. These include full .shp and .xmdf file support, ISIS-TUFLOW-PIPE (ISIS-ESTRY link), flexible output options, TUFLOW Wiki, new SA options, new infiltration options, new 1D structures, updated utilities, and more. He will also discuss the TUFLOW event and scenario features which offer the user a very powerful tool to the point where all simulations can be initiated using the one .tcf file.
Boundary Conditions - Session 1(Download PDF)
This workshop will comprise a presentation on TUFLOW hydraulic controls and reliable representation of the physical process at outflow boundaries. This will be held in conjunction with a discussion on practical applications of fluvial and rainfall hydrology within a TUFLOW model.
Hydraulic Structures - Session 2(Download PDF)
This workshop will be about methods for the modelling of buildings, fences and other hydraulic structures which have no explicit representation in TUFLOW. A variety of different techniques for representing buildings and fences in a two-dimensional domain will be presented, along with some of the pros and cons of each. Discussion in the workshop will then focus on the attendees' experiences of this aspect of urban modelling, how some of the methods can be implemented using commonly available data sources and which of the methods might be appropriate for any particular problems that the attendees might have.
This workshop will cover how to model bridge and culvert structures in TUFLOW using embedded ESTRY units, direct modelling in 2D and ISIS TUFLOW. The latest recommendations from various sources will be presented. There will be brief consideration for potential approaches to modelling bridges and there will be discussion of participants' experiences and problems with bridge modelling.
TUFLOW for Beginners - Session 1
The objective would be to introduce TUFLOW to new users so that they can understand the principles of TUFLOW and benefit from the rest of the day. This will cover the basics of setting-up a TUFLOW model and a discussion of TUFLOW file structures.
Developing Skills - Session 2(Download PDF)
For more experienced users the objective would be to build on people's existing experience so that they are able to address more complex issues including optimising simulation times, TUFLOW hot-start/restarts, schematisation of boundary conditions, multiple domains and 1D linking to ESTRY. This workshop included some handouts (B&W).
Healthy Models & Debugging - Session 3(Download PDF)
This workshop will concentrate on the production of healthy models including checking for terrain problems; tracking the causes of instability using TUFLOW diagnostics files and basic advice on building a healthy model such as 2D linking across embankments, boundary positioning, modifying time steps (when and when not to reduce), LiDAR patching and z shape merging, representation of ditches, parallel rivers and general good practice.
ISIS-TUFLOW Linking - Session 4(Download PDF)
An interactive presentation relating to ISIS-TUFLOW linking and will cover the following subject areas: model preparation; data transfer between ISIS and TUFLOW; HX verses SX boundaries and fixing model instabilities at the interface of ISIS and TUFLOW. This will be supported by the use of worked examples.
