2019 TUFLOW Release Australian Workshops & Training

Recommended Posts

The 2019 TUFLOW Release Australian Workshops start in a few weeks, and this year’s release is a big one so if you're interested signup soon as there are limited places remaining.  The dates of the courses are provided further below and on our training page.  To register download the flyer or email training@tuflow.com.  

The 2019 release is another game changer off the back of last year’s highly successful TUFLOW HPC engine release.  This year there are major enhancements to the HPC engine and other exciting developments including:

·         Quad-tree mesh resolution refinement

·         Sub-Grid Sampling (SGS) that utilises the finer detail of the underlying DEMs/TINs in the hydraulic calculations

·         A new sub-grid turbulence scheme that has minimal cell size dependency

·         Non-Newtonian flow for modelling slurry and tailings dam failures

·         The TUFLOW Viewer GIS tools

·         Numerous new minor features

Quad-tree refinement offers substantial benefits allowing you to very easily have finer cells where the hydraulics and topography require those extra levels of resolution (or coarser cells in areas that don’t need high resolution). 


Sub-Grid-Sampling (SGS) in combination with the new sub-grid turbulence enhancements is proving to be a game changer for fixed grid modelling. For whole-of-catchment models (e.g. direct rainfall models), the response times are quicker and water retention substantially less, especially where the DEM resolution is much finer than the cell size. For deep sided smooth channels, for example a concrete lined trapezoidal channel, that are not mesh aligned the flow patterns no longer have “saw-tooth” effects and now closely obey Manning’s formula. Sensitivity of results to mesh size is greatly reduced and effects due to rotation of the grid almost eliminated. This is far-reaching in that TUFLOW HPC is now able to produce the same quality of results as a well-designed, high resolution, flexible mesh construction, even if using a coarse cell size.

The release workshops will provide detail on the new features and the hands-on computer-based training the day following allows you to apply the new features to models.  Due to over-subscription of our introductory training courses in the middle of this year, we’re also offering another round of introductory courses the week prior to the release workshop/training.

Introductory Training

Two-day computer-based training that is aimed at new TUFLOW modellers. The course includes TUFLOW theory, followed by practical model creation and review of results.

2019 Release Workshop

Aimed at all TUFLOW users from modellers to managers. The day will provide detail and discussion of the new features included in the 2019 release.

2019 Release Training

Computer-based training is tailored towards existing modellers who want to learn, and have a hands-on experience, using the 2019 release features. People attending this session are advised to also register for the release workshop the day before.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
