Workshop: Dynamic Flood Simulation with HEC-RAS

Tuesday, May 14th, 2019 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Dana Porter Computer Lab (LIB 329)

This workshop is a primer for working with computational hydrology software and, as such, assumes a good grounding in most GIS concepts of spatial and raster analysis. The tutorial is designed to get you comfortable with HEC RAS's specific requirements for creating a dynamic flood simulation.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Gain some fundamental insight into HEC RAS and computational hydrology
  • Understand the basic requirements for creating a flood simulation
  • Create boundaries and flows for creating a flood simulation
  • Finally, run a simulated flood animation
