HEC-RAS 2D Training in Australia!

Written by ironcore | January 4, 2016

The 2D HEC-RAS class is a GO!  Who wants some HEC-RAS 2D Modelling training?   This will be a fantastic opportunity to learn how to set up and run 2D and 1D/2D HEC-RAS models.  Mr. Krey Price and I will be hosting this course in Melbourne, Australia on April 5, 6, and 7th. Please go here for more details and to register for the class.  There will be some additional courses throughout Australia later, but I will only be participating in the Melbourne class on April 5, 6, and 7th.

Following the success of his 2015 HEC-RAS 5.0 course held in Italy, former HEC-RAS Development Team Member Chris Goodell will be travelling to Australia in April 2016 to conduct two intensive 3-day courses focused on 2D model development in HEC-RAS.

This course will take place in  Melbourne,  5-7 April, 2016.

The course will be held in CBD conference/training facilities in downtown Melbourne. Please register for the class at http://www.surfacewater.biz/register/.

Chris is the Director of Applied Research for WEST Consultants, Inc. and is the author of the popular blog “The RAS Solution”.  He has numerous publications about advanced capabilities within HEC-RAS, including his book “Breaking the HEC-RAS Code,” which presents the use of the HECRASController in customising HEC-RAS for Monte Carlo simulations and other specialised model runs.

Chris will be assisted by Krey Price, a hydraulic modeller who recently supervised a 6-month benchmarking study on over 200 model runs comparing the beta version of HEC-RAS 5.0 with TUFLOW. Krey has 15 years of consulting experience for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, including dam breach, levee design, and sediment transport modeling and seven years of hydraulic modelling experience for Australian industries and public agencies.

In addition to presenting 2D functionality, the course will also include an introduction into sediment transport capabilities within HEC-RAS as well as presenting the results of several recent benchmarking studies comparing HEC-RAS 5.0 to other industry-standard models, including TUFLOW and MIKE. Additional details on the course contents are included on the website http://www.surfacewater.biz/course-outline-and-contents/.

    Hello Sirs, is there any possibility of getting the training materials for us living in east Africa, and who cannot attend the training?

    Hi Yared- I'm afraid our policy doesn't allow for training materials to be distributed outside of courses. Any chance you want to try to arrange a course in East Africa? Or, can you get to South Africa? There may be a course there later this spring/summer.

    Is the benchmark study performed by Krey Price available anywhere?

    Hello, what will be the prices? The website does not list AU or US and does not mention GST?

    No. You'll have to take the course to see it. 😉

    The price is AUD $795 incl. GST.

    No plans yet, but as I tell everyone, if you can gather together enough participants, we can do the training anywhere.

    It would be great if we have similar workshop in sydney on march. I have already registered my interest to attend this workshop in Sydney. Chris, Do u know if the workshop is going ahead in Sydney?

    Will the 3 day workshop be going through the examples in the HEC-RAS 5 manual, or completely new examples?

  12. Chris Goodell

    on January 18, 2016

    They are new examples made specifically for this class, but they use the two standard datasets, Muncie and Bald Eagle Creek.

    No plans for Sydney at the moment, however, if there is enough demand, that would be a logical place for a follow-up.

    Hi Chris, Are you interested of coming to China to do a training course? Of course firstly we will do some research to figure out how many people would join. And we can also help translating the training materials and the conversations between you and learners. And also try to figure out how to organize this event.

  17. Chris Goodell

    on January 27, 2016

    Yes I would. Shall we continue this conversation over email? [email protected]

    Is this Brisbane course going ahead? How can I enroll in it?

  19. Chris Goodell

    Possibly. But not during the original dates listed above. It has been postponed. Please check with Mr. Krey Price for up-to-date details: [email protected]
