The objective of the course is to enable the participants to perform water surface profile computations, for steady flow hydraulic analyses, using computer program HEC-RAS in a sound and effective manner.

This course teaches the concepts of open channel flow concepts, hydraulic model data requirements, HEC-RAS input requirements, laying out cross sections for 1D hydraulic modeling, application of bridge and culvert routines, calibration of a steady flow hydraulics model, floodway determination, an overview of Optional capabilities, and output analysis. The HEC-RAS software will be included in lectures and workshops. Participants have an opportunity to prepare input and analyze output during workshops.

Nominees must be assigned (a) Occupational Series: Selected 0800 and 1300; (b) Grade: GS-05 or above. Nominees must be engineers who perform professional work in the fields of hydraulics and hydrology. Nominees should have one or more years of experience in these areas. Students should have had at least one (1) college level class in open channel Hydraulics. It is required that course participants be in positions or anticipate being in positions in the next year or two where they will be involved in water surface profile calculations.
