Additional Information:

There's no question that HEC-RAS, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Hydrologic Engineering Center River Analysis System program, is an incredibly powerful tool. However, it's also no secret that it can be overwhelming, challenging and, in the hands of an inexperienced user, the end result could be numerical instability and severely flawed analyses. Can you afford that outcome on your projects?

To help you make sense of HEC-RAS, we've recruited Joe Skupien, one of the most highly rated instructors in hydrology and hydraulics, to teach this 3-day hands-on training class.

After completing this HEC-RAS training course, attendees will:

  • Understand the basic theories of open channel, floodway, and bridge and culvert flow used by HEC-RAS
  • Understand HEC-RAS capabilities, limitations, input needs, sources and output options
  • Select appropriate bridge and culvert modeling methods
  • Create and execute a HEC-RAS project
  • Identify input errors and modeling problems to help insure "accurate and reasonable" program output
