Hydraulic Modelling using HEC-RAS

The course gives an introduction to river basin modelling using HEC-RAS.

HEC-RAS is a software program that models hydrodynamics of flow in a river and/or channel. It is used to determine if for a given discharge the flow exceeds the river bank levels. Flooding studies can be carried out to determine the flood extent and volume.

Prerequisites

It is expected that participants have good computer skills and basic knowledge of hydraulics.
