This intensive, hands-on, training and computer workshop will prepare the engineer and water resource professional to use the HEC-RAS computer program in real world situations. Led by experts with experience in hydraulic modeling, participants learn how to conduct water surface profiles, bridge hydraulics, and flood plain information studies using the 1-dimensional steady flow capabilities of HEC-RAS.  The HEC-RAS modeling system was developed as part of the Hydrologic Engineering Center's Next Generation software and replaces several existing Corps of Engineers programs, including the HEC-2 water surface profile program. HEC-RAS incorporates various aspects of hydraulic modeling, including water surface profile computations and bridge hydraulics.

Class Size is capped at 15 students for maximum interactivity and participation. 

Seminar Benefits

  • Learn how to use the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers HEC-RAS (River Analysis System) computer program
