This webinar explains the importance of sediment transport modeling, how sediment transport in HEC-RAS works and how it relates to normal hydraulic calculations. Erosion, transport, and deposition of sediment are natural processes that provide both problems
and opportunities. Prediction of sediment processes is often important in watershed, flood management, restoration, and environmental studies. Numerical modeling of these
processes can be used to estimate the response of rivers and reservoirs under various conditions (e.g., pre- versus post-project). This webinar provides an introduction to sediment transport modeling as implemented in the widely-used software from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, HEC-RAS (River Analysis System).
$249 M/ $299 NM
Late Registration: Registrations must be received three business days prior to the webinar date.
Special Offer on Webinars: Individuals and Small Organizations that are members of ASCE (Less than Five Engineers) save $100 on the Registration Fee – Just Use Promo Code LESS05 when registering.
