Learn how to make a realistic flood assessment using the immersive 3D design environment of InfraWorks 360 software and Hydronia RiverFlow2D flood-simulation model. Even if you’re not a fully versed hydraulic engineer, you will learn to set up a flood simulation—from building the topographic model to generating a flood animation of water depths and velocities in a few minutes, and with effective communicational impact. See how you can make infrastructure design evaluations based on flood hazards while improving your hydraulic-simulation workflow and producing graphics and animations that greatly enhance your presentation to decision makers. In this class, you will learn the latest advances of the InfraWorks 360 flood-simulation plug-in, you will understand the tools available to define flood hazards in any location, and you’ll export your simulation results to AutoCAD Civil 3D software. This session features InfraWorks 360 and AutoCAD Civil 3D.
