McBreach Probabilistic Dam Breach Modeling Software

Fellow HEC-RAS modelers. Today is National Dam Safety Day.  Dam Breach modeling is a key component to a well-rounded and robust dam safety program.  If you're doing dam breach modeling, you need to check out McBreach. Probabilistic hydraulic modeling is where we're heading with dam breach analysis. Why not get a head start with McBreach. This is free software and works seamlessly with HEC-RAS.

HEC-RAS Pub and Grub in Portland-June 27th-Reminder and short video preview!

For those of you who will be in the Portland Oregon area on June 27th, I invite you to join me for this special event Kleinschmidt is hosting at the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne.  I'll be joined by two dynamic and entertaining presenters: Krey Price of Surface Water Solutions and Sean Welch of BPA.  We will be talking about the fun side of hydraulic modeling, demonstrating some wild, creative, and somewhat wacky applications of HEC-RAS.  

  • What's New (and Coming!) with HEC-RAS
  • Automating HEC-RAS with the HECRASController
  • How to know when your HEC-RAS model is wrong
  • Using drones and Structure from Motion to prepare terrain surfaces for your HEC-RAS models.  
  • Crazy and absurd (but fun!) applications of HEC-RAS around the world
  • 2D Modeling of the Ice Age Missoula Floods

You don't want to miss this!  

Check out Krey Price's preview video for the HEC-RAS Pub and Grub!

It will be an informal, casual gathering with lots of time for Q&A.  Hope to see you there!  No RSVP needed.  Just show up a little early, get a pint, and grab a chair.  We'll start at 5:30 sharp and we have the pub until 8:30.

  Space may be limited, so make sure you get there on time!
