On-demand: Modelling structures in HEC-RAS

Water modelling for bridges and culverts

Take sessions anytime, at your own pace with unlimited course access for 30-days. This course covers the incorporation of bridges and culverts into 1D, 2D, and coupled 1D/2D HEC-RAS models.

Learn how to build bridges and culverts into your HEC-RAS model alongside your presenter, Krey Price. Krey is a highly experienced HEC-RAS user with extensive software development and lecturing experience whose career includes 15 years of developing hydraulic models for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Topics covered in the course include:

  1. Background theory: Energy vs momentum for low flow, pressure flow, and weir flow
  2. The HDS5 approach for culvert design
  3. Background theory: Delineating appropriate upstream and downstream 1D cross sections
  4. Estimating flow separation and expansion/contraction zones for coefficients and ineffective flow areas
  5. Entering bridge geometry for deck, abutments, and piers
  6. Linking a 1D bridge reaches to 2D flow areas
  7. Entering bridges and culverts as internal connections in 2D Flow Areas
  8. Introduction to bridge scour for piers and abutments

Course Format: 

  • Delivered via a learning platform, through a series of 29 units and includes over 18 short video steps while you develop an understanding of the software and demonstrate its key features and limitations.
  • Includes pre-and-post-course materials to go through via the learning platform.
  • Exercises via a 40 page training manual.

Requirements: A good internet connection and the latest version of HEC-RAS. Download here

Completion: On completion of the course attendees will be issued with a Certificate of Participation.
