RiverFlow2D model with the MD module offers unique tools to evaluate flood risk originating from sudden Dam and Tailings Dam Breaks. Selecting one out of 8 non-Newtonian rheological laws, the model can consider virtually all possible tailings ranging from relatively low-density high-water content fluids to granular materials.
RiverFlow2D MD has been thoroughly tested with real data end in actual tailings dam breaks worldwide. The numerical engine uses the same high accurate finite-volume method of the RiverFlow2D model, making it the most advanced and complete hyperconcentrated flexible mesh 2D model available today.
