HEC-RAS essentials

Don’t miss our upcoming hydraulic modelling software training course: HEC-RAS essentials.

This two-day course is tailored to give attendees an essential overview of the hydraulic modelling software HEC-RAS. The course modules will cover how to construct a simple 1D model including structures such as weirs, bridges and culverts, to developing a 1D-2D hydrodynamic hydraulic model.

HEC-RAS essentials Book your place here

Module 1 – 1 December 2021

Module 2 – 2 December 2021

This course is suitable for:

Project managers, engineers and hydraulic modellers requiring an overview of the HEC-RAS software and practical tuition on the use of HEC-RAS. No prior knowledge or experience of HEC-RAS is required, although some knowledge of river modelling/hydraulics will be beneficial.

What does this course cover?

This course will introduce you to HEC-RAS software and how to construct a simple 1D model, including the consideration of structures such as weirs, bridges and culverts within HEC-RAS, and floodplain representation. The course will then move on to cover 1D-2D hydrodynamic hydraulic models and RAS Mapper.

Throughout the course you will build on real world examples to understand and demonstrate the capabilities of the software.  By the end of these training modules you will be able to:

  • Build and run simple 1D models
  • Modelling floodplains in 1D and 2D
  • View results and spot basic errors
  • Utilise GIS applications of HEC-RAS

About the trainer – Gavin Hodson, BSc FdSc MCIWEM C.WEM

Gavin is one of our senior modellers based in our Skipton office. Gavin has undertaken a wide range of studies utilising the functionality of HEC-RAS. He has  produced models for clients such as The World Bank, Environment Agency and Network Rail. The output from the modelling has been used to inform the decision-making process in relation to flood hazard planning and flood alleviation scheme appraisal. Gavin has also been involved in testing Beta versions of HEC-RAS.
