HEC-RAS 2D and Sediment Dynamics Course in Portland Oregon

Written by ironcore | August 22, 2018

Please join me this October for a fantastic opportunity to learn 2D HEC-RAS and Sediment Dynamics. 

Both courses are open to all and will be hosted by River Restoration Northwest and Portland State University.   Take one or both courses!  This was very popular last year and sold out so don’t wait too long to register.  Please visit the River Restoration Northwest website for more information and to register.

Course #1:  Hydraulics Analysis using HEC-RAS 2D  (Oct 2nd to 4th, 2018)

Location: Mercy Corps, Portland, OR – Aceh Community Room, 8AM – 5PM
Instructors: Chris Goodell, Kleinschmidt & Gary Wolff, OTAK
Course fee: $825 (includes coffee, tea, and snacks. Lunch on-your-own)
Description:  This intensive 3-day workshop will instruct students on the use of HEC-RAS for two-dimensional hydraulic modeling. The course will include an overview of 2-D flow theory, RAS Mapper, and the differences between 1-D and 2-D modeling. There will be a focus on the applicability and use of 2-D modeling for river restoration design. The use of the model is taught through hands-on exercises and real-world project examples. Students should have an existing working knowledge of HEC-RAS.

Course #2:  River Sediment Dynamics (Oct 10th to 12th)

Location: Mercy Corps, Portland, OR – Aceh Community Room, 8AM – 5PM
Lead Instructor: Dr. Colin Thorne, University of Nottingham
Course fee: $825 (includes coffee, tea, and snacks. Lunch on-your-own)
Description:  This short course covers the fluvial processes responsible for erosion, transport and deposition of sediment within rivers, providing a fundamental understanding of how sediment dynamics drive channel formation, adjustment and evolution. The course focuses on how sediment dynamics can be investigated and modeled in the contexts of practical river management and restoration projects.
