Live course: 1D, 2D and 3D flow, #6 H&H Essentials

Understand key differences in 1D, 2D and 3D flow computations

(Course code: LS-22-3-052)

In this 3-hour intensive training course, attendees will increase their knowledge of the underlying equations governing 1D, 2D and 3D flow estimation. Throughout the course attendees will be shown practical working examples, learning hands-on how to use and apply different equation sets, leading to an increased understanding in the effects of the adopted modelling assumptions.

This course is part of our H&H Essentials series

Key concepts/topics covered

  • Mannings equation
  • Navier-Stokes and Saint-Venant equations
  • Courant Number
  • Finite element vs finite difference vs finite volume approaches
  • Implicit vs explicit solutions
  • Boundary conditions and flow transitions

Learning objectives

  • How to select an appropriate modelling approach
  • How to determine whether equation terms can be ignored
  • How to account for vertical variation using depth-averaged results


This course is part of our H&H Essentials series, comprised of 8 individual intensive 3-hour courses with each course flowing into the next enabling attendees to build their skills piece by piece through every course. Each course in the series will focus on a key principle of hydrology and hydraulics. Click here to register for the ENTIRE series.


These courses are designed to cater for engineers and non-engineers alike, with a range of provided background materials that make the course suitable for both beginners and experienced professionals seeking a refresher for the underlying concepts behind hydrologic and hydraulic modelling applications.


Each course consists of a 3-hour live session with pre- and post-course materials delivered through sequential units via our customised learning platform. Recordings of the live sessions will be made available to all attendees for later review. The courses include electronic copies of background material and workshop instructions, with pre-readings/videos and manuals available for ongoing learning.

As a live attendee, you will have unlimited access to all courses in the series until the 30th of September 2022.

What’s included within each of the 8 courses in the series:

  • 3-hours of session recordings to view as many times as required;
  • Ability to ask questions to the presenters at any time through the learning platform;
  • PDF manual of the course available for ongoing use;
  • Workshop material for hands-on exercises downloaded from the learning platform before starting the session recordings;
  • Pre-reading and viewing materials.


Pre-course reading and video watching is encouraged.


A good internet connection and software and downloads as described in the learning platform. To provide the best desired learning outcomes, set up in a quiet space with dual monitors (i.e., one screen with the on-demand recording and the other with the software/exercise that attendees can work on simultaneously).


On completion of the course attendees will be issued with a Certificate of Participation. Attendees earn CPD hours/points with professional organisations for at least 5 hours per course (therefore 40+ hours for the series).
