Virtual Seminar




08/22/2022 - 08/25/2022


This course provides an introduction of HEC-RAS with applications to dam safety. The course provides a hands-on opportunity to use the program and resolve specific questions. The objective of this course is to review the basic principles of open channel hydraulics as they relate to the natural stream environment with application to dam safety. Bridges, culverts, and in-line structures will be discussed and both steady and unsteady flow modeling will be explored.

Learning objectives attendees will receive from this course:

  • Understand the basics of water surface profile computations.
  • Create 1D HEC-RAS models.
  • Incorporate bridges, culverts, and in-line structures.
  • Apply principles of open channel flow to dams and dam failures.
  • Extract and analyze output.
  • Obtain an understanding of 1D unsteady flow modeling with HEC-RAS.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to apply these objectives and have a comfort level in developing and analyzing a hydraulic model for typical open channel flow applications.

The participants should have an undergraduate engineering degree. Students are encouraged to prepare for this classroom course by viewing the ASDSO Webinar Hydraulics 101: Intro to Hydraulics for Dam Safety

ASDSO will also be offering a three-day HEC-RAS 2D class where students will receive more in-depth instruction on building and running 2D flow models. Learn more!
