Local authorities have the challenging task to create an urban environment that is healthy, climate resilient, sustainable, safe and pleasant for all inhabitants. Not only for now, but also for the future in which urban areas will be more populated and the consequences of climate change will be more tangible. Hydrodynamic simulations are needed for policy making, design and planning to achieve these challenging governmental tasks. 3Di provides accurate information in an easy to understand manner.
Analyze water in the urban area
Analyze the vulnerability of the urban areas for pluvial floods, fluvial floods or storm surges. Through detailed and integral hydrodynamic modelling 3Di provides insights. Maps show where floods occur, the water depth, arrival times and which critical objects are affected. Simulate and unravel the complexity of any area. Couple hillside rainfall runoff, infiltration, flow through the drainage system, rivers, surface flow, high-tide and wind effect. Interact with assets and make live adjustments to the elevation.
Test and optimize the sewer system
Creating a sewer system that can withstand heavy rainfall often requires a lot of effort. 3Di provides an integral solution for modelling the rainfall runoff, the sewerage and overflow to the surface water. By the high level of detail in 3Di even street gullies can be taken into account to simulate the water flow with high precision. The user can choose any rain event to test the sewer system. The 3Di result analysis tool in QGIS offers all information to analyse the results and optimize the sewer system.
Planning and (re)design
Growing population in urban areas asks for continuously planning and redesign. New buildings, green spaces and water elements have an effect on the way water flows through an area. 3Di offers insight and is the instrument that helps to steer water in the right directions. Before starting to (re)design have an understanding of the water system. Next, quantify the impact of a new design.
