ASCE Central Branch Announces
HEC - HMS COURSES
Course 1: “Engineering Hydrology: Applications using HEC-HMS”
August 6-8, 2018
This 3-day course serves as an introduction to hydrologic modeling of the rainfall-runoff process and covers the following topics: precipitation, hydrologic losses (infiltration), surface runoff (hydrographs), channel routing, and parameter estimation. Commonly used methods such as the NRCS Curve-Number, Snyder and NRCS’s Synthetic Unit Hydrographs and the Muskigum-Cunge River Routing Technique will be discussed in detail.
Cost: $1,200 per participant
Course 2: “Advanced Engineering Hydrology” August 9-10, 2018
This 2-day course focuses on advanced topics in hydrologic modeling of the rainfall-runoff process. The following topics are presented: unit hydrograph derivation, changing the duration of a unit hydrograph using the S-curve method, estimation of the NRCS’s Peak Rate Factor, multiple sub-basin modeling, parameter estimation, resevoir modeling, dam breach analysis.
Cost: $800 per participant
