Hydraulic Modelling

Mason Clark Associates have the capabilities to carry out detailed hydraulic modelling using the computer model ISIS.

This modelling has been used as part of the detailed design of a number of flood alleviation schemes to calculate flow paths during storm events.

It can also be used to simulate various rainfall events on a catchment to determine the volume of attenuation required to provide flood protection of properties as part of flood alleviation schemes.
 
The breach of existing river flood defences can be modelled and can be used to accurately quantify the flood risk to a site, this can be used to form additional information in a flood risk assessment.

Westwood Pasture Beverley

Westwood Pasture Beverley

During the storms of June 2007, the Westwood Pasture and the surrounding residential properties on Willow Grove and Pasture Terrace in Beverley experienced extensive flooding.

This flooding was due to the topography of the of the land meaning the large catchment to the west of Beverley collected rainfall and diverted it down the valley to the Westwood Pasture. Learn more.

Flood Assessment, Wentworth Drive, Goole

Flood Assessment, Wentworth Drive, Goole

Mason Clark Associates were asked by East Riding of Yorkshire Council to produce a robust 2D flood model to analyse what effect a breach of the flood defences of the River Ouse would have on a proposed nearby site.

The proposal was to develop the site at Wentworth Drive, Goole into an affordable residential development but due to the close proximity of the site to the River Ouse the planning application was rejected. Learn more.
