#GIS - Flood Modeling Course - HEC-RAS from scratch

Flood and flood analysis with free software: HEC-RAS

HEC-RAS is a program of the United States Army Corps of Engineers, for the flood modeling in natural rivers and other channels. In this introductory course we will see the process for the realization of one-dimensional models, although as of the 5 version of the program, the two-dimensional flow modeling has been incorporated, as well as the sediment transfer modeling capabilities.

The course will advance through the entire process of generating the model: from the creation of geometry, analysis data entry, model execution, and data export.

It is a course eminently practical with the just and necessary doses of theory, where materials are provided to follow each lesson in real time.

HecRas is a program for the calculation of floods and floods.
