Dam Breach Class Boston, MA May 1-3, 2013

Written by Chris Goodell | WEST Consultants

Hi everyone. For those of you who are HEC-RAS dam breach enthusiasts, I will be teaching a 3-day course on dam breach modeling with HEC-RAS in Boston in a few weeks. The course will be held next to the historic MIT campus overlooking the Charles River and downtown Boston, May 1-3. In this course you'll learn all the standard and some of the not-so-well-known techniques for stabilizing and improving the accuracy of very dynamic and stubborn unsteady flow HEC-RAS models (dam breach models are notorious for this). You'll also learn state-of-the-art approaches to dam breach modeling, including level-pool versus dynamic reservoir drawdown and probabilistic techniques for dam breach modeling. Hope to see you there.

If you can't make this one, the next one is in Denver September 11 - 13, 2013. 

Chris
