This is an interactive seminar focused on the application and benefit of two-dimensional flow capabilities of HEC-RAS, specific to the dam safety industry. The course will maintain a balance between 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. The course will also cover new features released with recent updates to HEC-RAS , such as spatial precipitation and infiltration; 2D bridge hydraulics; improvements to RAS Mapper; and more. The course will utilize the most recent version of the HEC-RAS software available at that time.

Learning objectives attendees will receive from this course:

  • 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.

It is recommended that attendees have some HEC-RAS 1D unsteady experience. ASDSO’s HEC-RAS Course is a recommended prerequisite.
