The UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) announced BMT as the winners of the ADMIRALTY Marine Innovation Programme challenge in December 2020. The challenge tasked participants with creating an innovative solution to unlocking autonomous navigation for commercial shipping.
To address the needs of the challenge, BMT created a new navigation system, which combined its field-proven marine navigation simulator, REMBRANDT, with TUFLOW FV hydraulic modelling software.
Dr Phil Thompson will talk about the creation of a new navigation system that led to the winning entry of the ADMIRALTY Marine Innovation Programme challenge. The webinar hosted by the Society of Maritime Industries (SMI) will take place on 16th February at 10:30 (GMT).
Floodplain Management Australia (FMA) is the peak national body for flood risk practitioners in Australia. FMA are running an FMA Member exclusive webinar series. The series features some of the most popular presentations from the FMA Conference program. A new webinar is published fortnightly, and remains available for viewing for a two week period.
The current webinar in the series happens to showcase an interesting BMT project for Toowoomba Regional Council that used TUFLOW as the flood modelling software for LGA-wide assessment of flood risk.
Duncan Kitts, TUFLOW’s UK/Europe Lead, will present the latest developments in 2D flood modelling online on February 2nd at 11:15 (GMT) at Scotland’s premier annual Flood Risk Management conference, FRM2021.
The presentation will review hydraulic modelling over the last 50 years and provide insights into TUFLOW’s recent, industry leading R&D that is shaping the future of hydraulic modelling and its application in flood risk management.
BMT has been awarded a contract to support the Scottish Seafood Industry in which TUFLOW's modelling solution will be used to target effective lice treatment practices, minimise environmental impact while reducing treatment costs and production losses, ensuring seafood security for years to come through sustainable farming practices.
The UK Hydraulic Office (UKHO) recently ran its first ADMIRALTY Marine Innovation Programme Challenge, focusing on autonomous ship navigation.
REMBRANDT and TUFLOW partnered for the challenge. We are proud to announce that our team were the challenge winner!
TUFLOW's 2020 software release awarded BMT a top ten spot on the Australian Financial Review's 2020 list of Australia and New Zealand's Most Innovative Companies (Professional Services category). The 2020 release is setting the global benchmark for hydraulic model simulation speed and accuracy by combining a range of complimentary innovations; namely GPU acceleration, a unique sub-grid sampling approach, quadtree mesh refinement and a world first cell size independent turbulence closure scheme. TUFLOW continues to lead the way and redefine what is industry best practice internationally.
Yes, we've been dragged away from our obsession of developing the most accurate, efficient and best supported hydraulic modelling software in the world, to produce a new website. Enjoy and please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org if anything is missing or not working and we'll sort it out.
