Details:

Master the powerful features of HEC-RAS version 5.0.7 using RAS Mapper to build 1D models without requiring third-party software.

Krey Price, Director of Surface Water Solutions, is a highly knowledgeable HEC-RAS user and experienced presenter who clearly describes the principles in each of the 13 steps of this course, to maximise your awareness, understanding, and confidence in using HEC-RAS.

Learn how to set up, run, animate, interpret and troubleshoot your model. Questions can be posed through our interactive online learning platform.

With 5+ hours of training materials, a step-by-step manual to follow, exercise homework and a final quiz, this course will provide an invaluable benchmark for the novice user or someone who is interested in updating their knowledge to the latest version of HEC-RAS.

Topics covered include:

  • Setting up RAS Mapper
  • Adding river, banks, and flow paths
  • Aligning cross sections
  • Adding roughness
  • Entering flow data
  • Running your simulation
  • Viewing your results
  • Adding bathymetry
  • Analysing roughness sensitivity
  • Analysing boundary condition sensitivity
  • Viewing cross sections and profiles
  • Investigating and viewing results
  • Exporting results

This course is designed with:

  • Units to complete via this learning platform.
  • Videos split into easy-to-follow steps.
  • Exercise to follow through- via a 40-page training manual.
  • Surveys and a final quiz to receive your certificate of completion.
  • Ability to ask questions to your presenter and submit survey responses.

Requirements:
A good internet connection and the latest version of HEC-RAS. A mouse with a centre e-wheel button is recommended. Using dual monitors is highly beneficial (one with the video recording & one with your own model).

Please note:
HEC-RAS Version 5.0.7 will only run on 64-bit Windows operating Systems (including 64-bit versions of Window 7, 8.0, 8.1 and 10). Make sure your operating system is up-to-date with all Microsoft patches for your version, before trying to install HEC-RAS.
