The purpose of this page is to provide an overview of the many components of the Water Module. It can serve as a basis to further explore the details of the available components, the models and formula's behind these components and configurable parameters of these components.

Rain related components

The following components define the Rainfall Overlay:

  1. Rain (Weather)
  2. Surface flow and runoff
  3. Evaporation
  4. Infiltration
  5. Sewer infiltration
  6. Sewer overflow
  7. Water storage (for example: Green roof)


In order to get more familiar with the different Rain related components check out Quadrant 2 of the Water Module Testbed. This Testbed is available to you as a project in the Tygron Platform.


Flooding related components

The following components define the Flooding Overlay:

  1. Breach
  2. Initial breach width
  3. Breach growth over time
  4. Surface elevation
  5. Impacted buildings
  6. Internal (or External) area, origin of flood.


In order to get more familiar with the different Flooding related components check out Quadrant 1 of the Water Module Testbed. This Testbed is available to you as a project in the Tygron Platform.

Groundwater related components

The following components define the Groundwater Overlay:

  1. Rain variation over time
  2. Evaporation variation over time
  3. Underground evaporation and vegetation root depths
  4. Underground infiltration
  5. Ground water flow
  6. Rainfall runoff

In order to get more familiar with the different Groundwater related components check out Quadrant 4 of the Water Module Testbed. This Testbed is available to you as a project in the Tygron Platform.

Hydraulic structures
