On-demand: 1D HEC-RAS Water Modelling (1D_HEC-on-demand)

Take sessions anytime, at your own pace with unlimited course access for 30-days.

This Introductory On-Demand Course will step you through how to build and run a basic one-dimensional model using RAS Mapper. Follow along and build your own model as Krey Price introduces you to fundamental processes and key concepts of HEC-RAS.

Krey Price, Director of Surface Water Solutions, is a highly knowledgeable HEC-RAS user and experienced presenter who clearly describes the principles in each of the 13 steps of this course, to maximise your awareness, understanding, and confidence in using HEC-RAS.

Learn how to set up, run, animate, interpret and troubleshoot your model. Questions can be posed through our interactive online learning platform. With 5 hours of training materials, a step-by-step manual to follow, exercise homework and a final quiz, this course will provide an invaluable benchmark for the novice user or someone who is interested in updating their knowledge to the latest version of HEC-RAS.

Topics covered include:
- Setting up RAS Mapper
- Adding river, banks, and flow paths
- Aligning cross sections
- Adding roughness
- Entering flow data
- Running your simulation
- Viewing your results
- Adding bathymetry
- Analysing roughness sensitivity
- Analysing boundary condition sensitivity
- Viewing cross sections and profiles
- Investigating and viewing results
- Exporting results

This course is designed with:
- Units to complete via this learning platform.
- Videos split into easy-to-follow steps.
- Exercise to follow through- via a 40-page training manual.
- Surveys and a final quiz to receive your certificate of completion.
- Ability to ask questions to your presenter and submit survey responses.

A good internet connection and the latest version of HEC-RAS. A mouse with a centre ewheel button is recommended. Using dual monitors is highly beneficial (one with the video recording & one with your own model).

Please note:
HEC-RAS Version 5.0.7 will only run on 64-bit Windows operating Systems (including 64-bit versions of Window 7, 8.0, 8.1 and 10). Make sure your operating system is up-to-date with all Microsoft patches for your version, before trying to install HEC-RAS.
