Introduction
These example models have been developed to demonstrate the most common TUFLOW FV model design features and applications. This dataset is useful for experienced modellers wishing to further develop their skills via demonstration examples. New users are encouraged to familiarise themselves with TUFLOW FV through the Tutorial Model Introduction before using this dataset. Unlike the tutorials, this dataset does not include step-by-step instructions / documentation. Users of this dataset are expected to have a basic knowledge of TUFLOW FV, and have suitable skills to open the model files by referencing the TUFLOW FV Control File (FVC) referenced in the feature catalogue list below.
Example Model Data
The model data is available for download from https://downloads.tuflow.com/TUFLOWFV/Example_Models/TUFLOWFV_Example_Model_Dataset.zip
The dataset only includes model input files. The models can be run to create simulation check and result files. A batch file (*.bat) for each of the example feature categories has been provided within the "runs" folder of each TUFLOW FV project.
If you are unfamiliar with using batch files, additional information explaining how to use them to execute multiple simulations is available here: Running TUFLOW FV from a Batch File.
Example Model Catalogue
Below is a complete list of the example models. This dataset uses TUFLOW FV as the computational engine.
Please note that the example flood model has the majority of TUFLOW FV 2D hydrodynamic features demonstrated. Features in the example flood model can be transferred to any TUFLOW FV model domain whether it be flooding, estuarine or coastal hydrodynamics. The coastal model examples include additional 2D hydrodynamic model features applicable to the coastal domain. These examples will be expanded over time to include further functionality.
Example Flood Model
These suite of examples is based on a small rural catchment. We start with the Base 2D Flood Model and progressively add alternative features that you can review. The Base 2D Flood Model contains the following key features and commands:
- GIS integration
- Hardware selection
- Model parameters
- Time period and timestepping
- Turbulence models
- Topography - Mesh, DEM, GIS Z Lines
- Material assignment
- Boundary locations (Nodestring and Point Inflows)
- Hydraulic structure (culverts and weirs)
- Output options

Example Coastal Model
This suite of coastal examples is based on the Gulf of Carpentaria Tutorial Module 04. We start with the Base 2D Coastal Model and progressively add alternative features that you can review. Please note that the example Flood Model contains a more exhaustive list of TUFLOW FV features. If you would like to experiment each can be added to the Coastal Model.
