HEC-RAS River Hydraulics Modelling Seminar. This training course is designed for both beginning and experienced hydraulic engineers who wish to learn how to use the newest version of HEC-RAS to perform river hydraulic modeling. This training course teaches the fundamentals of HEC-RAS hydraulic modeling. Some prior knowledge and experience with HEC-RAS is helpful, but not required. The primary focus of this training course is to provide "hands-on" experience to the modeler. Participants will learn by doing, while using the HEC-RAS software on their own computers. The lectures and lab sessions will concentrate on demonstrating how to use the software in "real world" engineering applications.

Course Objectives

  • Benefit from “hands-on” instruction throughout the course
  • Learn practical applications in river hydraulics
  • Understand water surface profile modeling with HEC-RAS
  • Get acquainted with the full capabilities of features included in the program
  • Develop confidence in application of HEC-RAS to a variety of modeling problems
  • Gain intensive, hands-on experience in model application
  • Learn how to review analysis results and troubleshoot models
  • Learn advanced modeling techniques
  • Learn to recognize potential problems in a modeling situation
  • Hear about “real life” applications

Course Subjects

  • Perform bridge and culvert design and analysis
  • Model multiple bridge and culvert opening roadway crossings
  • Analyze and predict bridge abutment and pier scour
  • Model both subcritical and supercritical (mixed) flow regimes
  • Compute split flows
  • Model reservoirs with gated spillways and weirs
  • Compare river channel modifications to reduce the impact of flooding
  • Introduction to GIS and HEC-RAS integration

Note: Participants are required to bring their own laptop computer to the workshop.

Instructor

Chris Maeder, P.E., Engineering Director – CM Water Group

Chris is a renowned expert in HEC-RAS, with over 25 years of application experience in HEC-RAS and HEC-2 modeling projects, including FEMA flood studies, bridge and culvert design, bridge scour and armoring studies, dam safety and failure analysis studies, as well as reservoir and spillway analysis and design. He has been involved with 1D and 2D hydrodynamic modeling projects of rivers, estuaries, coastal inlets, as well as worked on urban stormwater drainage, transportation and roadway drainage, storm sewer design, detention pond design, stormwater quality, and watershed management planning projects. Chris has provided water resource training courses to numerous organizations, such as the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), US Army Corps of Engineers Districts, NRCS, State DOTs, State DNRs, Canadian Water Resource Association (CWRA), and to universities worldwide.
