FLO-2D is a dynamic flood routing model that simulates channel flow,
unconfined overland flow and street flow. It can simulate a flood
over complex topography and roughness while reporting on volume
conservation; the key to accurate flood distribution. The model uses
the full dynamic wave momentum equation and a central finite
difference routing scheme with eight potential flow directions to
predict the progression of a flood hydrograph over a system of
square grid elements.
The purchase of the FLO-2D model includes the v2009 software and a
subscription service that is good until the next release. A hardcopy
of the FLO-2D Manuals is not included with the purchase.
RiverFLO-2D is a hydrodynamic, mobile bed model for rivers. It is
a 2-D in-channel flood routing model that uses a finite element
model to compute high resolution flood hydraulics. Flexible
triangular mesh refines the flow field around key river features in
complex river environments.
RiverFLO-2D is a perfect companion to the FLO-2D model. FLO-2D can
route a large flood to the project river reach, accounting for
floodwave attenuation and detailed floodplain features. RiverFLO-2D
can then predict the detailed 2-D channel hydraulics and overbank
flooding through the shorter project reach. RiverFLO-2D has been
applied on a number of river projects worldwide including large
rivers in South America and in the United States.
The purchase of the RiverFLO-2D includes the most current software
with bug fixes, updates and technical support that is good until the
