Since its initial release in 2005 the free and open source hydrodynamic model Anuga (GA), developed by geoscience Australia and The Australian National University (ANU) has been applied to a number of Tsunami impact studies and to a lesser extent flood studies.
Recent confirmation of historic debris flows in several sites across Tasmania has prompted a need to identify other potential flow sites in Tasmania and to better understand and quantify the risks associated with such events.
Late in 2006, the open source 2D hydrodynamic model ANUGA (ANU & Geoscience Australia) was released. While providing a fully generalised hydrodynamic modelling engine, it was initially developed to simulate coastal inundation during a tsunami.
To explore procedures for distinguishing between floodways, flood storage areas and flood fringes in 2D models where little 1D character is present. (As typically occurs in many fine detail urban flood models)
To understand the intent of section 6 and explore ways of providing more deliberate guidance in respect to the ‘other’ factors involved in the consideration of true hazard at a site.
