Webinar: Dam safety modelling using McBreach©

Manage risk by leveraging the power of HEC-RAS through Monte Carlo simulations

Introducing McBreach©! Faced with aging infrastructure, limited resources, dynamic weather events, and the uncertainty of climate change, today’s dam owners must manage risk to protect the lives of the public and our built environment. The free McBreach© program, quantifies uncertainty and informs better decision making before an event.

“McBreach© takes dam breach modelling and analysis to the next level. By complimenting the traditional deterministic dam breach methods, McBreach’s probabilistic approach provides a more meaningful and more genuine way to communicate the potential effects from a dam or levee breach.” says Chris Goodell, Principal Consultant for Hydraulics & Hydrology, Kleinschmidt.
