This 6.5 hour live lecture presentation reviews the history and development of the US Army Corps HEC-RAS application and examines the principles of hydraulic analysis, the types of flow and data required for modeling, steady flow surface profiles, and the HEC-RAS user interface.
Water / Stormwater Management
Health, Safety and Welfare
Learners will be able to discuss the history and development of the US Army Corp of Engineer's HEC-RAS computer program (now in the public domain) and its applications, including flood risk assessment, floodplain management, roadway, bridge and culvert design, and new channel or channel modification design.
Learners will be able to describe basic applicable hydraulic principles, including conservation of energy and momentum, energy losses, the Bernoulli Equation, and backwater effects
Learners will be able to navigate the HEC-RAS software user interface.
Learners will be able to utilize HEC-RAS software to create steady flow profiles and one- and two-dimensional unsteady flow simulations.
Learners will be able to utilize special elements of HEC-RAS software for bridge and culvert modeling and lateral and diversion structures.
