This is an interactive seminar focused on the application and benefit of two-dimensional flow capabilities of HEC-RAS, specific to the dam safety industry. The course will maintain a balance between both lecture-style presentations on model theory and hands-on workshop sessions for examples of model applications. Topics will include applications and benefits of HEC-RAS 2D modeling; RAS Mapper and terrain preparation; running 2D models including dam, levee, and breach modeling; viewing results with RAS Mapper; troubleshooting and model review. The course will also cover new features recently released with HEC-RAS 6.0, such as spatial precipitation and infiltration; 2D bridge hydraulics; improvements to RAS Mapper; and more.

Learning objectives attendees will receive from this course:

  • Understand when and where to use HEC-RAS 2D
  • Develop necessary input/terrain data for HEC-RAS 2D
  • Create and run a HEC-RAS 2D model
  • Troubleshoot and review a HEC-RAS 2D model
  • Utilize HEC-RAS 2D for various dam safety applications

It is recommended that attendees have some HEC-RAS 1D unsteady experience. ASDSO’s HEC-RAS Course is a recommended prerequisite.
