Workshop on Modelling River Flow and Morphodynamics within the IRIC Interface 




A workshop on Modelling River Flow and Morphodynamics within the IRIC Interface was held on 01st and 02nd of September at UNESCO Madanjeet Singh Centre for South Asian Water Management (UMCSAWM), Department of Civil Engineering, University of Moratuwa. The workshop was jointly organized by United Geological Survey (USGS) U.S.A, Hokkaido University, Japan and University of Moratuwa. Inauguration ceremony of the workshop was graced with the participation of the Vice-chancellor, Prof. A.K.W. Jayawardene, Dean, faculty of Engineering, Prof. K.K.C.K. Perera and Head, Department of Civil Engineering, Prof. J.M.S.J. Bandara and Dr. Jonathan Nelson from USGS.


The workshop covered a broad spectrum of river modelling techniques within the International River Interface Cooperative public-domain modelling interface. The workshop covered almost all aspects starting with basic data input and stepping through the process of grid generation, model execution, visualization and verification. Participants were taught on how to effectively use the modelling approaches like, FaSTMECH, Nays2DH, NaysFlood and NaysCube.
