Course Information

Number:FNU0014060
Name:Use of HEC-RAS 2D for Disaster Preparation and Response

New Course:No
Description:

This presentation will demonstrate various techniques and considerations for utilizing the 2D modeling functionalities of HEC-RAS 5.0x for modeling large, complex areas for flood inundation and forecasting activities.


Content:

Specifically, the presentation will focus on ways in which these techniques can be used to assist municipal agencies in resource staging and dissemination before, during and immediately after a storm event.


Objectives:

  • Discuss internal and external data requirements for executing rain-on-grid modeling
  • Demonstrate use of refinement regions and breaklines to gain computational mesh detail or maximize computational efficiencies
  • Discuss the usage of inflow hydrographs to minimize the extent of the computational area where possible
