Course: 5th HEC-RAS Water Modelling

Hydrologic Engineering Centres-River Analysis System: Latest version.

Using the latest version 5.0 of HEC-RAS, this week-long series of courses covers basic, intermediate and advanced levels across both 1D and 2D.
HEC-RAS is recognised as an industry standard hydraulic modelling program that is widely used throughout the world.
The 1-day courses run consecutively through the week, enabling attendees to join any combination of the courses.

Krey Price

Surface Water Solutions

Educated at the University of California at Berkeley, Krey is a civil engineer and project manager with international experience in water resources. He is engaged in computational modelling, engineering design, and project management for flood mitigation, mine rehabilitation, river and wetland restoration, stormwater management and catchment assessment projects. Krey’s specialties include: 2D hydraulic modelling, bridge and culvert replacement, bank stabilisation, landform design, mine closure, coastal engineering, river mechanics, environmental restoration, geomorphic design, fish passage, and dam decommissioning. Krey has extensive software development and lecturing experience; his career includes 15 years developing hydraulic models for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and he has recently provided training to over 100 course attendees using the newly released HEC-RAS 5.0 software.

Mark Forest

HDR Engineering

Mark has over 34 years of experience in water resources engineering, specialising in flood control planning and design, floodplain management, rainfall/runoff modelling, hydraulic modelling, dam breach analysis, and alluvial fan modelling. He has extensive experience in a wide range of modelling programs, including the Corps of Engineers hydrologic and hydraulic modelling programs. Mark has also conducted numerous hydrologic and hydraulic modelling and floodplain management training courses, including HEC-RAS 2D analysis for individual clients and technical society conferences. He also has considerable experience in both the public and private sectors performing technical review of hydrologic/hydraulic reports and providing litigation support as an expert witness. As the global Practice Leader for Floodplain Management and Modelling, Mark is responsible for development of technical best practices and training in these disciplines, oversight of the Surface Water Modelling Practice Group and providing technical leadership and risk management.

Robert Keller

Monash University

Dr Robert Keller has over thirty years of experience in Civil Engineering Hydraulics. Currently a consulting engineer, he has over twenty years of experience in river engineering and hydraulic structures. He was previously an Associate Professor at Monash University where the department honoured Robert by naming its Hydraulics Facility after him. He has carried out many flood studies using the HEC-RAS program and has conducted many training courses in the use of HEC-RAS. Dr Keller’s main areas of expertise are: Open channel flow, flood plain hydraulics, physical and numerical modelling, sediment transport, hydraulic structures, urban hydraulics.

Workshop PROGRAM  Note: All course days will be taught using HEC-RAS 5.0 software

This training is offered in association with Floodplain Management Australia, Engineers Australia the Australian Hydrographers Association and the Australian Water Association. Members of EA, FMA, AHA, AWA receive a 20% Discount.

 

This training will use the latest Version 5.0 of HEC-RAS, a globally-respected water modelling package, available for free download from the US Army Corps of Engineers, who author and support this software. The new version includes two-dimensional floodplain modelling, unsteady sediment transport, bank erosion, water quality, and the RAS Mapper GIS interface.

hec-ras-particle-tracing-manual-kpriceThis week consists of five courses, run consecutively, and you can attend any combination of courses with respect to your level of experience and understanding.

Course attendees will learn to build, run, and animate flood models using the free HEC-RAS software

Benefits:
– Understand the methods used by HEC-RAS software in modelling channel and flood plain storage
– Learn about unsteady flow and sediment transport analyses
– Undertake hands-on HEC-RAS modelling exercises with full instruction
– Know how to consult with modellers and to engage with management regarding HEC-RAS models
– Know when it is appropriate to build an expensive model and when back-of-envelope will do
– Recognise the “point of diminishing return” in a model construction and implementation
– Learn troubleshooting and computational optimisation techniques
– Learn how to scope model development and review model results provided by others

There will be ample opportunity to discuss issues that course participants have encountered in professional practice.

All courses include lectures and workshops with hands-on case studies.

Attendees bring their own Windows-based laptops for installing software (installation links will be provided prior to the course). If you are unable to provide one, please inform us on your registration.
