This is an interactive seminar focused on application and benefit of two-dimensional flow capabilities of HEC-RAS, specific to the dam safety industry. The course will maintain a balance between both lecture-style presentations on model theory and hands-on workshop sessions for examples of model applications. Topics will include applications and benefits of HEC-RAS 2D modeling; RAS Mapper and terrain preparation; running 2D models including dam, levee, and breach modeling; viewing results with RAS Mapper; troubleshooting and model review.

Key Take-aways: 

  • Understand when and where to use HEC-RAS 2D.
  • Develop necessary input/terrain data for HEC-RAS 2D.
  • Create and run a HEC-RAS 2D model.
  • Troubleshoot and review a HEC-RAS 2D model.
  • Utilize HEC-RAS 2D for various dam safety applications.
