This training course is designed for both beginning and experienced hydraulic engineers who wish to learn how to use the newest edition of HEC-RAS to perform river hydraulic modeling. This training course teaches the fundamentals of the HEC-RAS hydraulic modeling. Some knowledge of 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 on their own computers. The lectures and workshops will concentrate on demonstrating how to use the software in “real world” engineering applications.
 
New features contained within HEC-RAS will be highlighted, including its recently added water quality analysis capabilities.
 
Participants are required to bring their own laptop computer to the workshop.
 
Course Objectives
  • Benefit from “hands-on” instruction throughout the course
  • Learn practical applications in river hydraulics
  • Understand water surface profile modeling with HEC-RAS
  • Develop confidence in application of HEC-RAS to a variety of modeling problems
  • Learn how to troubleshoot models
  • Learn how to review analysis results
  • Learn advanced modeling techniques
  • Learn to recognize potential problems in a modeling situation
 
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 flow
  • Compute split flows
  • Model reservoirs with gated spillways and weirs
  • Compare river channel modifications to reduce the impact of flooding
  • Perform unsteady flow analysis and complete hydrograph routing
  • Perform river water quality analysis
  • Understand ArcGIS and HEC-RAS integration

The Instructor
 
Chris Maeder, P.E., Engineering Director CM Water Group
 
This course is instructed by Chris Maeder, M.S., P.E., CFM.
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.
