HEC-RAS and HEC-HMS Courses Offered in August

Thursday, May 10, 2018 3:20 PM | Greg Westfall (Administrator)

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

Course 1: “HEC-RAS Introductory Course” August 13-15, 2018

This  3-day  course  is  devoted   to  the  use of  the HEC-RAS program for  basic open channel flow analysis. Course topics include: water surface profiles, bridge and culvert hydraulics, multiple opening analysis, bridge scour computations.

Cost: $1,200 per  participant


Course 2: “Unsteady Flow using HEC-RAS” August 16-17, 2018

This  2-day  course is  devoted to  the unsteady flow  application of  the HEC-RAS program. Course topics include: geometric preprocessing, unsteady flow  simulations, storage area and storage area connections, lateral weirs,  dam breach analysis, and trouble shooting.



Cost: $800 per  participant

There will be a $50. discount for NJAFM members.
