This on-demand series consists of 3 x 2 hour sessions and will address a range of sediment transport modelling topics, including mud and debris flow measuring capabilities that have just been added to both 1D and 2D modelling in HEC-RAS version 6.0. Attendees will work through setting up a sediment transport model in HEC-RAS, performing the simulation and interpreting results.


Format Take sessions anytime, at your own pace with unlimited course access for 30-days. Signup for the entire series and you will have 4 months of access to all the courses.

After this training you will have a good understanding of the following:
1. Typical applications of sediment transport models.
2. Input data required to perform sediment transport modelling.
3. HEC-RAS model capabilities and limitations.
4. New features including:
– Mud and debris flows capabilities
– Perform full blow sediment transport, erosion and deposition modelling to the 2D solver
– New 1D sediment features

Learning with presenters of this calibre will be valuable professional development for engineers, planners, geomorphologists, modellers, and others working around rivers and reservoirs.

Content and delivery

  • The course starts with a basic hydraulic model of a river reach.
  • You will then enter various sediment and hydrologic inputs necessary to run this as a sediment transport model, going over some of the different options in the program.
  • Execute the model and go through the different ways to examine and interpret the results.
  • Add complications by using “real” river cross sections.
  • Some of the more advanced features and optional capabilities of HEC-RAS will be demonstrated.


  • The course is delivered through units via the learning platform
  • 6+ hours of recordings
  • Pre-and-post-course materials to read through via the learning platform.
  • Ability to access all the online course materials with unlimited course access for 30-days or signup for the entire series and you will have 4 months of access to all the courses


Eroding rivers and sediment-filled reservoirs pose an increasing threat to lives, environment, and infrastructure around the world.
Join us in this on-demand training where we’ll cover the challenges and opportunities associated with mobile-bed hydraulic modelling, which has the potential to allow the prediction and mitigation of impacts associated with sediment movement.


Pre-course reading and video watching is encouraged.

What’s included

The HEC-RAS Training Series is designed to be taken individually. Each course is highly practical and hands-on ie; not simply a PowerPoint of lectures.

To provide the best desired learning outcomes, set up in a quiet space with dual monitors (i.e. one screen with the session and the other with the software/exercise that attendees can work on simultaneously). The courses are not designed for a board-room setup.

  • x3, 2-hour sessions and the recordings to view as many times as required in a month;
  • Signup for the entire series and you will have 4 months of access to all the courses;
  • PDF manual of the course. The manual is recommended for ongoing use;
  • Working models, downloaded from the learning platform before starting the course;
  • Exercises / homework to complete between sessions;
  • Pre-reading and viewing materials;
  • Ability to access all the online course materials for a month. The pre-readings and manual are available for ongoing learning;
  • Attendees earn 9+ CPD hours/points (ie with Engineers Australia), 40+ hours for the Series.


A good internet connection and the latest version of HEC-RAS.


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