Myriax launches revolutionary flood modeling software to enable faster than real-time simulation of fluid dynamics

20th February 2013 – Myriax, an Australian software company, today announced it has launched its latest offering: Eonfusion Flood. Eonfusion Flood is a hydrodynamic modeling software package created for a broad range of potential users including government bodies, councils, environmental consultants, catchment management authorities and engineering consultants. It provides its users with a fast and cost-effective flood modeling solution.

Many existing flood modeling software packages are expensive to purchase and require significant training to define the right modeling conditions. Eonfusion Flood provides cost effective, desktop- based, real time simulation of 2D grid and 3D particle based fluid dynamics, enabling users to accurately model flow with a minimum of data input and with very low learning overheads. The model works within a familiar, interactive user environment.

Recent floods on the east coast of Australia and around the world have highlighted the catastrophic damage that floods can cause. Accurate and cost effective flood modeling will allow governments, insurers and planners more detail in their assessments. Dr Matt Wilson, CEO of Myriax, said, “Eonfusion Flood is designed for water professionals. It provides the ability to model the dynamics of flooding in rivers and on flood plains, in dam break and overtopping scenarios and for urban risk assessment. The risk to property and infrastructure can now be visualized clearly and quickly.”

Dr. Wilson also said: “Bringing this level of speed and value to our users whilst not reducing the quality of output has been a driving goal for the Eonfusion Flood software since its inception. We’re excited to bring this product to local councils, Federal and State governments and the engineering community, who will ultimately use Eonfusion Flood to assess risk and make lives safer.”

Sven Rand from Pitt and Sherry, a consulting engineering company, said “As a beta tester, we’ve been able to provide feedback and see enhancements on what is already a finely-tuned product. We were impressed with the ease of use and minimal training required to implement Eonfusion Flood for practical outcomes. We have now purchased and will continue to use Eonfusion Flood at Pitt and Sherry across a wide range of applications.”

Myriax specializes in 4D geospatial analysis software, including fisheries acoustics and has recently extended their advanced software technology to include flood modeling. Myriax is based in Hobart, Tasmania. More details can be found at
