The challenge

Floods are among the most common and destructive natural hazards across the world. It’s predicted that the frequency of flooding will increase across 42% of Earth’s land regions by the end of the century, which could cause extensive damage, stress, loss of life and disruption worldwide. To understand and manage these risks requires a software that quickly and accurately models the inundation of rivers, urban areas and floodplains.

Our solution

Developed by Jacobs, Flood Modeller is an industry-leading flood modelling software which enables engineers and scientists to deliver faster and more accurate results by simplifying the modelling of river, surface water, and urban drainage systems, and removes the need to use other software. It enables you to confidently understand flood risk and develop optimal solutions to manage the impacts of climate change.

Designed with the user in mind, it provides a user-friendly interface and allows you to accurately model flood mechanisms by providing a powerful suite of numerical solvers, a wide range of hydraulic structures, and access to the latest hydrological methods. Whether you need to build a simple 1D model of a rural river channel, develop a 1D-2D linked flood model for an urban area or undertake fully integrated catchment modelling that incorporates sewer networks and other drainage systems, Flood Modeller has the functionality to meet your needs.
