  • Introduction to the HEC-RAS program

The second day INTERMEDIATE workshop, targets people who already have a basic understanding of flow profile modelling and the use of the HEC-RAS model and wish to extend their knowledge to solve more complex design problems.


The course has been designed to equip attendees with:

  • An understanding of HEC-RAS features such as junction analysis
  • Introduction to bridge and culvert modelling, multiple openings and encroachment options
  • Bridge analysis with HEC-RAS

Topics Include:

  • Open Channel Hydraulics & Introduction to HEC-RAS
  • One Dimensional Flow Profiles in Context
  • Cross Section Locations & Friction Slope Options
  • Bridge Analysis and Modelling
  • Mobile Boundaries, Bridge Scour
  • Intermediate Floodplain Modelling
  • Culvert Modelling
  • Case Studies & Discussions
