The 2D HEC-RAS class is a GO! Who wants some HEC-RAS 2D Modelling training? This will be a fantastic opportunity to learn how to set up and run 2D and 1D/2D HEC-RAS models. Mr. Krey Price and I will be hosting this course in Melbourne, Australia on April 5, 6, and 7th. Please go here for more details and to register for the class. There will be some additional courses throughout Australia later, but I will only be participating in the Melbourne class on April 5, 6, and 7th.
This course will take place in Melbourne, 5-7 April, 2016.
Chris is the Director of Applied Research for WEST Consultants, Inc. and is the author of the popular blog "The RAS Solution". He has numerous publications about advanced capabilities within HEC-RAS, including his book "Breaking the HEC-RAS Code," which presents the use of the HECRASController in customising HEC-RAS for Monte Carlo simulations and other specialised model runs.
Chris will be assisted by Krey Price, a hydraulic modeller who recently supervised a 6-month benchmarking study on over 200 model runs comparing the beta version of HEC-RAS 5.0 with TUFLOW. Krey has 15 years of consulting experience for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, including dam breach, levee design, and sediment transport modeling and seven years of hydraulic modelling experience for Australian industries and public agencies.
In addition to presenting 2D functionality, the course will also include an introduction into sediment transport capabilities within HEC-RAS as well as presenting the results of several recent benchmarking studies comparing HEC-RAS 5.0 to other industry-standard models, including TUFLOW and MIKE.
