Live Course: Flow routing, #3 H&H Essentials

Develop design hydrographs and calibrate model results to observed flow records.

(Course code: LS-22-3-049)

In this 3-hour intensive training course attendees will increase their knowledge of rainfall-runoff techniques for generating and routing flow, including the sensitivity of peak flow results to the selected parameters. Throughout the course attendees will be shown practical working examples, learning hands-on how to use and apply different rainfall-runoff approaches, leading to an increased understanding of confidence limits, probability, and uncertainty in the analysis and application of flow routing.

This course is part of our H&H Essentials series

Key concepts/topics covered

  • Types of hydrologic models: rainfall-runoff routing vs rain-on-grid/direct precipitation
  • Transform methods vs routing methods
  • Unit hydrographs and kinematic wave models
  • Lag, modified Puls, and Muskingum-Cunge flow routing
  • Modelling and designing detention and storage systems for flow attenuation
  • Generating a probable maximum flood from the probable maximum precipitation

Learning objectives

  • How to select a rainfall-runoff model
  • Calibrating peak flow rate, lag time, and flow volume to observed results
  • How to apply ensemble and Monte Carlo approaches
  • How to conduct and interpret sensitivity analyses


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 hereto 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).
