We have added all new VIC-based case studies for the HEC-RAS 2D modelling course, including diversion drains, direct rainfall/rain on grid, and urban and coastal flooding. In response to feedback from our previous courses, we are also incorporating workshops with hydraulic structures, GIS interfacing, and terrain manipulation within HEC-RAS. Each day’s course runs from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. Following is an outline of the proceedings:

Previous Melbourne Courses:

We were pleased to have The RAS Solution and Breaking the HEC-RAS Code author Chris Goodell in Melbourne to teach our inaugural HEC-RAS 5.0 course in April 2016. The course was well attended and we received extremely positive feedback from course attendees. Our October 2016 Melbourne course was held in conjunction with ICE WaRM and covered both 1D and 2D modeling over 5 days.

Upcoming Courses:

For those interested in both 1D and 2D modelling, the ICE WaRM course will be held on an annual basis going forward, with the next course to be held in Brisbane in September 2017. Our next dam break course is anticipated to be held in October 2017 in Hobart.
