2024 training courses

All our 2024 training courses are led and delivered by our world-leading experts. 

We offer online courses as well as face-to-face events at our riverside training facilities at Howbery Park campus in Wallingford, UK.

Breach modelling: why, when and how?

This webinar aims at introducing a physically based breach model, the EMBREA model. We will describe the various features of the model showing the significance of looking at the embankment design detail, the associated variations in failure processes and how this can significantly affect the consequences.

Coastal processes and management

This introductory course, relevant to engineers, coastal landowners, regulators and operating authorities; explores the history, processes and modelling of changes at the coastline. Delegates will gain practical advice that can be directly implemented into the design methods for coastal engineering and management schemes.

Coastal structures

An introduction to the key issues of coastal processes, and design methods for coastal structures. 

Dredging management

An overview of the environmental aspects of dredging, the latest technology and equipment that apply to dredging and the management of dredged material.

Gas Modelling with HR Wallingford (from master planning to real time and forecasting simulations)

This webinar will provide an overview of HR Wallingford’s gas network modelling portfolio. Participants will find out how this set of tools can help them to become more efficient in their daily works when gas distribution models are applied.

Introduction to flood risk analysis and management

An ideal course for those involved in river and flood risk management. Although the focus of the course is river and urban flooding, much of the content also has relevance to tidal and coastal flooding.

Introduction to river hydrology and hydraulics

An introductory course designed for anyone who requires an understanding of the management of river systems or the impact of developments in a river catchment.

Marine scour

This course explores the theory and method for analysing scour in a range of marine environments. It gives an  introduction to procedures for assessing scour risk at marine structures as well as appropriate use of scour countermeasures through a combination of theory, practical sessions and classroom discussion.

QGIS for flood risk management

This online course is designed to provide a solid foundation in using QGIS for flood risk management.

River modelling & drainage design for flood risk assessment & management

This course will benefit those responsible for reviewing hydrological estimation and river modelling outputs as part of Flood Risk Assessments, and for evaluating and approving conceptual drainage designs and surface water management plans for new developments. It helps participants understand the fundamental hydrological and hydraulic modelling issues necessary for the delivery of robust flood risk and drainage impact assessments / conceptual drainage designs. 

SuDS: standards, guidance and design tools

A guide to the basis and requirements of current criteria and methods for delivering compliant surface water management systems.

TELEMAC summer school

TELEMAC is an open-source software suite for modelling free surface waters using unstructured mesh finite element models. Aimed at consultants and students who are working on riverine, coastal and maritime hydrodynamic modelling projects, this course gives an insight to the hydrodynamic tools available in the TELEMAC suite.

Wave action on coastal structures

This course is designed for those who need to be able to anticipate and/or predict the response of coastal structures to wave action. It teaches the theory and methods necessary for delivering alternative solutions to coastal problems.

Wave overtopping

This course provides guidance on analysis and/or prediction of wave overtopping for flood defences attacked by wave action. It introduces the EurOtop manual and presents established and new techniques to predict wave overtopping at seawalls, flood embankments, breakwaters and other shoreline structures.

Waves and wave modelling using SWAN

This course provides a summary of the theory related to wave transformation. Delivering a hands-on introduction to setting up and running SWAN, including pre- and post-processing, it is aimed at both students and professionals, and no previous experience of running computational wave models is required.
