Webinar Overview

The Australian Water School is excited to be working with renowned experts in this field who will guide attendees through:

  • the intricacies of compiling accurate input data – a critical but often overlooked aspect of dam breach modelling;
  • a software-agnostic approach: gain valuable knowledge applicable regardless of your preferred modelling software;
  • real-world application: work with practical datasets, apply regression equations to estimate dam breach parameters, and prepare for hands-on model development (separate sessions offered).

Key Learnings

  • Background theory: Solidify your understanding of dam breach modelling fundamentals;
  • Calibration techniques: Master effective calibration approaches to ensure model accuracy;
  • Pitfall avoidance: Identify and overcome common challenges associated with dam breach modelling.

Webinar Outcomes

  • At the conclusion of this Premium Webinar, attendees will be empowered to tackle dam breach modelling confidently by going beyond the basics.
  • Attendees will be issued a Certificate of Participation.
