HEC-RAS Modeling Workshop
25 - 26
Oct 2014 - Oct 2014 @
This two day workshop provides HEC-RAS Steady Flow River Hydraulics
Modeling training. The Hydrologic Engineering Center—River Analysis System (HEC-RAS)
is a computer software designed to simulate water surface profiles and velocities
for a network of natural and constructed watercourses. HEC-RAS is widely used
throughout the world as an industry standard hydraulics program. The lectures and
lab sessions will concentrate on teaching and demonstrating principle of hydraulics
and hydrology and how to use the software in practical engineering applications.
Participants will learn by doing, while using the HEC-RAS software on their own
computers. The Software and Documentations are free downloaded from
By participating in this workshop, you will be able to construct a complete HEC-RAS
model using the exercises provided in the course. Performance of channel network,
bridge and culvert design and analysis will be conducted along with the sample
projects. Introduction to flood studies using HEC-RAS will be provided. Participants
will gain confidence in applying HEC-RAS to a variety of modeling problems from the
lectures and exercises provided. Troubleshooting and how to review, verify and
calibrate HEC-RAS models will be provided.
This workshop will benefit anyone involved with the river hydraulics, hydrotechnical
engineers, water resources engineers, dam safety engineers, river forecasting
engineers, watershed planning and advisory groups, mining and oil and gas resource
companies, water policy decision makers, and other technical personnel responsible
for open channels, flood mitigation, flood forecasting, water management
infrastructures such as bridges, reservoir, spillways, and culverts.
Event Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
