The tools and capabilities of Aquaflood 2016 include:
Digital terrain modelling
This enables users to create 3D terrain surfaces fromn various sources, or directly from CAD drawing entities. Digital terrain model creation supports any XYZ survey data file format, as well as terrain model creation from CAD points, lines, polylines, blocks etc. Digital terrain models can also be displayed in TIN mode, or by contour lines, thus enabling users to define various border definitions and DTM visibility options
Creation of river alignments
Using Aquaflood 2016, users can create river alignment with sample lines and very accurate river channel cross-section views, which can then be exported to MIKE FLOOD and/or HECRAS for further analysis.
MIKE FLOOD and HEC-RAS data export/ import interface
This valuable capability allows for the sharing of geometry data between platforms, thus adding to the speed, accuracy, and quality of any analysis performed.
After importing survey data, river alignment and it’s sample lines comes in place. For more efficient work alignment manager is available through the whole drafting process.
Creating river cross sections is the most important part of export to modeling tools. After computation water flow data is imported back into cross sections to display actual water levels in detailed views.
Users can use MIKE FLOOD software or HEC-RAS modelling tools to calculate water flow rates after geometry data is exported from Aquaflood 2016. Computed water flow data can then be imported back into Aquaflood 2016 to display actual water levels in detailed cross-section views.
This enables the creation of detailed surface information reports regarding the river channel and surrounding floodplains by using a two-dimensional (2D) bathymetry mesh tool. Thanks to Aquaflood 2016’s interface capabilities, river-related data can be exported to MIKE FLOOD, where computations can be made and then imported back into Aquaflood 2016 to create 2D displays of actual flooding results.
