CPD Credit: 6.5 hours, C1
This one-day course provides an overview of the fundamentals of flood risk management (FRM) in Ireland. It incorporates a review of the different types of flood risk, an introduction to the hydrological and hydraulic analyses undertaken in FRM studies, provides details on the flood maps used and how flood relief schemes are identified through optioneering, prior to outlining the detailed design and construction of such schemes.
The course aims to provide an overview of the analysis and methods used in flood risk management, from feasibility study to construction stage.
- What is Flood Risk Management?
- Introduction to Hydrology
- Introduction to Hydraulic Analysis
- Flood Mapping
- Detailed Design and Construction
Within the programme outline above, an overview of natural solutions will be included to cover:
- Catchment Characterisation
- Runoff Reduction
- Sediment Management
- Land Use/Land Cover - land capability for forestry and land capability for agriculture
- Measures - Drainage modifications to improved grasslands, catchment woodlands, instream structures, floodplain woodlands, land and soil management practices and river morphology restoration
Who Should Attend?
This course is intended for anyone who requires an introduction to, or develop, their basic knowledge of flood risk management.
