8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
HEC-RAS 2D Workshop


4/10/2017 - 4/11/2017 
2 Dimensional Modeling Training
Location:  Columbus, OH
Ohio Floodplain Management Association (OFMA)

Doubletree Hotel Columbus/Worthington
175 Hutchinson Avenue
Columbus, OH 43235

Standard overnight rooms are available at the Doubletree Hotel for $109/night + tax. Please call for hotel reservations by March 20, 2017. Indicate you are attending the "OFMA 2D Training".

This two-day course will introduce experienced floodplain modelers to the new two-dimensional modeling feature available in Version 5 of HEC-RAS. The two-dimensional modeling capability, first introduced in August 2015, combines continuity and momentum to produce time-varying hydraulic characteristics of waterways and adjacent floodplain areas. Through the use of RAS Mapper, time-varying results can be displayed in extremely high resolution providing a continuous spatial description of the geometric and hydraulic characteristics of the waterway and adjacent floodplain area.

Topics to be presented include the theoretical basis for two-dimensional hydraulic computations, GIS basics, developing terrain models in support of 2-D modeling, 2-D data requirements, use of RAS Mapper, and incorporating boundary conditions in 2-D models. Hands-on workshops will be conducted to provide course attendees ample opportunity to learn how to develop, analyze and interpret the results of two-dimensional floodplain models.

Course Requirements:
  1. HEC-RAS Version 5
  2. ARC GIS (Highly Encouraged)
  3. Registrants must bring their own laptop computer
