ASCE Central Branch Announces

HEC - HMS COURSES

AUGUST 2018

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

EARN UP TO 40 PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT HOURS (PDHs)!

Professional Development Hours (PDHs) are now required  in order to maintain currency with your Professional Engineering License (P.E.) This course satisfies the requirement as set  forth by the New Jersey State Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors as a means of earning PDHs.

Course 1: “Engineering Hydrology: Applications

Using HEC-HMS” is eligible  for 24 PDHs Course 2: “Advanced Engineering Hydrology: Applications Using HEC-HMS” is eligible  for 16

PDHs.
