HEC-RAS 2D Water Surface Modeling

  • Arlington Echo Outdoor Education Center 975 Indian Landing Road Millersville, MD, 21108 United States (map)


This two day basic HEC-RAS training workshop provides users with an introduction to using the HEC-RAS program for performing steady, unsteady, 1D and 2D flow water surface modeling.  The target audience is engineers who have some familiarity with hydraulic analysis and are experienced with using the HEC-RAS software. Class graduates should be able to independently complete basic, steady-flow water surface profile analyses.  They will also become familiar with the capabilities and analysis of unsteady 1D and unsteady 2D analysis. 

The workshop utilizes lecture, class discussion, and hands-on problems. The format is generally lecture followed by a hands-on computer exercise where the participants will practice what they have just learned. The introduction, overview and some advanced issues will be presented. It is a fast paced technical training workshop. Attendees are asked to bring a calculator and a lap top computer with Microsoft Excel, HEC-RAS 5.0 and ArcMap loaded on the machine. Participants are encouraged to bring example problems and issues to class that they can share with the group during the class discussions.
