Would you like to meet the Director of HEC, Chris Dunn and the lead developers of HEC-RAS (Gary Brunner) and HEC-HMS (Matt Fleming)?
They will all be coming across to London on 25 and 26 October to meet with leading users of the software. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the software and its future development path, and to exchange knowledge on how these products are used in Europe and the USA for flood risk management and also water resources and channel restoration work.
Over the two days there will be plenty of opportunities to speak to Chris, Gary and Matt and learn from the experts. Demonstrations and interactive workshops will feature the latest thinking, giving you practical solutions to take away with you.
There is also an opportunity to showcase your projects where the HEC software has been used focusing on the new functionalities and efficiencies. If you would like to submit a poster the deadline is 31 August, please email us in the first instance to register your interest and we will send you further guidelines for the poster submission.
During the two days you will:
- Learn how to build a HEC-HMS catchment model from scratch
- How to apply the HEC software in hydraulic engineering, flood forecasting, flood risk mapping and catchment modelling projects
- Explore how HEC-RAS Sediments (and some of the ‘hidden’ utilities) can help in your hydromorphology studies, scour, bank erosion and maintenance.
- Discover how the reservoir system simulation software (HEC-ResSim), can be used to model reservoir operations at one or more reservoirs for a variety of operational goals and constraints.

On the evening of 25 October there will be an optional social event to visit the largest movable flood barrier in the world - The Thames Barrier, followed by a buffet. Your guide will cover topics including the history of the river and the risk of flooding in London, the environment and wildlife of the Thames.
When: 25 - 26 October 2016
Where: Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM), London
