Online Course: 1D Water Modelling with HEC-RAS- February 2019

A live and interactive 1D modelling course with added individual support

Master the powerful features of HEC-RAS version 5.0.6 using RAS Mapper to build 1D models without requiring third-party software. Includes up to one hour of optional one-on-one screen-sharing time with the instructor to assist with troubleshooting or to set up or optimise your own project model.

These interactive, mentoring sessions provide a unique opportunity to ask questions as you build a model with your presenter, Krey Price, a highly experienced HEC-RAS user with extensive software development and lecturing experience. His career includes 15 years of developing hydraulic models for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Places are limited to allow for greater interaction. Register quickly to secure your place!

Format: 

  • The course is delivered through 10 units via the learning platform
  • 2 live and interactive sessions of 2 hours over two weeks
    • Thursday, 14 February, 10:30am (Australia/Adelaide Time)
    • Thursday, 21 February, 10.30am (Australia/Adelaide Time)
    • Sessions are recorded & uploaded to the learning platform if you cannot attend live.
  • Up to one hour optional one-on-one screen-sharing time with the instructor to assist with troubleshooting or to set up or optimise your own project model.
  • Pre-and-post-course materials to go through via the learning platform.
  • Exercise via a 40 page training manual between the 2 week’s live sessions.

Preparation: Pre-course reading and video watching is encouraged. There is also an opportunity to tailor the sessions to your direct questions via the initial survey. After the first week you will be given some exercises to complete, prior to the next session.

Requirements: A good internet connection and the latest version of HEC-RAS 5.0.6.

. Please note: HEC-RAS Version 5.0.4 and newer will only run on 64-bit Windows operating Systems (including 64-bit versions of Window 7, 8.0, 8.1 and 10). Make sure your operating system is up-to-date with all Microsoft patches for your version, before trying to install HEC-RAS.

Content: This course consists of interactive, training and mentoring sessions. Krey will step you through the building of a flood model using RAS Mapper. You will then run, animate, interpret and troubleshoot your model.

Topics covered include:

  • Setting up RAS Mapper
  • Adding alignments
  • Adding bank lines
  • Adding Cross-Section locations
  • Adding spacially varying roughness
  • Generating 1D HEC-RAD Geometry File from RAS Mapper
  • Viewing 1D results in RAS Mapper

Outcome: On completion of the course attendees will be issued with a Certificate of Participation.

Previous attendees comments of this course: 

  • “The course and format worked very well and Krey did a great job. I appreciate his willingness to answer questions offline with more complicated issues. Thank you!”
  • “Krey is very good at setting a reasonable pace to follow along over a webinar setup. Explaining the limitations of 1D HEC-RAS models for topics not covered in the course (eg junctions) is also appreciated.”
  • “The presenter expressed every topic or steps very well and he could repeat for the attendees to understand. He also provided answers to all the questions raised and allowed for further communication even after the course which is very good.”
  • “Showed an excellent wealth of knowledge in HEC-RAS and gave a lot of useful tips and hints on creating a model.”
