HEC-RAS - Introduction to 2D modelling

1 day

Release 5.0 of HEC-RAS includes a new 2D hydrodynamic simulation engine together with dynamic 1D/2D linking. This hands-on course will introduce HEC-RAS users to the 2D modelling theoretical background and practical data issues to use the tool and new 2D functionality.

This course builds on the HEC-RAS Essentials course and follows the same case studies through from developing a 1D model to creating the associated 2D model domain.  A discount will be offered to delegates booking more than one course in the HEC-RAS suite.

Who should attend?

Hydraulic modellers involved in flood risk assessments and those involved in the appraisal of new schemes.

Course objectives

  • Understand the new 2D HEC-RAS capability
  • Understand how to create and link a 1D unsteady model with the new 2D flood area using available structures
  • To be confident to make a 1D/2D linked model
