Water Modelling in HEC-RAS

Hydrologic Engineering Centres-River Analysis System

Hydrologic Engineering Centres-River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) is a computer program, primarily used for the computation of water surface profiles in steady and unsteady, gradually varied flow situations. It is recognised as an industry standard program and is widely used throughout the world.

Course content
This course consists of two days, covering basic and intermediate levels. Attendees can come to one or both days.
The first day targets people who require a basic understanding of flow profile modelling and the use of the HEC-RAS model.The course has been designed to equip participants with:
  • An understanding of basic open channel flow hydraulics
  • Principles of computation of water surface profiles
  • introduction to the HEC-RAS program
The second day INTERMEDIATE workshop, targets people who already have a basic understanding of flow profile modelling and the use of the HEC-RAS model and wish to extend their knowledge to solve more complex design problems. The course has been designed to equip attendees with:
  • An understanding of HEC-RAS features such as junction analysis, introduction to bridge and culvert modelling, multiple openings and encroachment options
  • bridge analysis with HEC-RAS

Who should attend:

  • Engineers employed by all levels of government
  • Consultants
  • Catchment management bodies
  • New graduates
  • Mining and resource companies
  • Water policy and planning
  • Water supply authorities
  • Agri businesses
  • Irrigators
Note- This will have international professionals attending.
