Eonfusion Flood is a hydrodynamic modelling software package created by Australian software company, Myriax, for a broad range of potential users, including government bodies, councils, environmental consultants, catchment management authorities and engineering consultants.

Many existing flood modelling software packages are expensive to purchase and require significant training to define the right modelling conditions. Eonfusion Flood provides cost effective, desktop-based, real time simulation of 2D grid- and 3D particle-based fluid dynamics, enabling users to accurately model flow with a minimum of data input and with very low learning overheads. The model works within a familiar, interactive user environment.

Recent floods on the east coast of Australia and around the world have highlighted the catastrophic damage that floods can cause. Accurate and cost effective flood modelling will allow governments, insurers, and planners more detail in their assessments. Dr Matt Wilson, CEO of Myriax, said, “Eonfusion Flood is designed for water professionals. It provides the ability to model the dynamics of flooding in rivers and on flood plains, in dam break and overtopping scenarios, and for urban risk assessment. The risk to property and infrastructure can now be visualised clearly and quickly.”

Dr. Wilson also said: “Bringing this level of speed and value to our users, while not reducing the quality of output, has been a driving goal for the Eonfusion Flood software since its inception. We’re excited to bring this product to local councils, Federal and State governments, and the engineering community, who will ultimately use Eonfusion Flood to assess risk and make lives safer.”

Sven Rand from Pitt and Sherry, a consulting engineering company, said “As a beta tester, we’ve been able to provide feedback and see enhancements on what is already a finely-tuned product. We were impressed with the ease of use and minimal training required to implement Eonfusion Flood for practical outcomes. We have now purchased and will continue to use Eonfusion Flood at Pitt and Sherry across a wide range of applications.”

  1. Urban Risk Assessments: An Approach for Understanding Disaster and Climate Risk in Cities (Urban Development) | WWW.MPROREVIEW.COM - 24 May, 2013

    […] Urban Risk Assessments: An Approach for Understanding Disaster and Climate Risk in Cities (Urban Dev…l="nofollow"> This book presents a framework, the Urban Risk Assessment, for assessing disaster and climate risk in cities which is intended to assist in decision-making, urban planning, and designing risk management programs. The approach seeks to strengthen coherence and consensus within and across cities in understanding and planning for risk from natural disasters and climate change. The target audience for this book includes policy makers, urban practitioners and technical staff, and international organizations. The Urban Risk Assessment is a flexible approach based on three reinforcing pillars that collectively contribute to the understanding of urban risk: a hazard impact assessment, an institutional assessment, and a socioeconomic assessment. The URA is designed to allow flexibility in how it is applied dependent on available financial resources, available data relating to hazards and its population, and institutional capacity of a given city. Based on the identified needs and priorities, city governments can select the most appropriate level of risk assessment. Chapters 1 and 2 of the book are aimed at policy makers with information on why and how to invest in measures that strengthen the understanding of urban risk; Chapter 1 provides background information on the growing importance of disaster and climate risk management strategies at the city level and Chapter 2 provides guidance on how to operationalize and mainstream the Urban Risk Assessment with ongoing urban management and development activities. Chapters 3 and 4 are aimed at practitioners, and provide details on the conceptual approach, components, uses, and monitoring requirements for carrying out an Urban Risk Assessment. […]
