CASFM Continuing Education

WEST Consultant’s hands-on seminar and computer workshop provides practical training in two-dimensional modeling using HEC-RAS. Participants gain intensive experience constructing two-dimensional HEC-RAS models from scratch. This hands-on experience also highlights methods in which the one-dimensional components of HEC-RAS can be connected to two-dimensional meshes. Lectures on 2D flow theory, an introduction to the new capabilities and features of HEC-RAS, and procedures for creating a stable and calibrated 2D model will be covered. Workshops focus on giving students experience with building and pre-processing the computational mesh, performing offline and inline 2D projects, and using the built-in feature RAS Mapper to spatially analyze results.

Attendees should bring their own laptop with latest version of HEC-RAS installed.
1.    Obtain a working understanding of HEC-RAS 2D theory.
2.    Setup a 2D mesh for hydraulic calculations.
3.    Successfully execute a HEC-RAS 2D model
4.    Troubleshoot and calibrate a HEC-RAS 2D model.
5.    Understand how to use RASmapper to visualize results
