The Anne Arundel County Watershed Stewards Academy in collaboration with the Maryland Stream Restoration Association, Biohabitats Inc., and NRCS are offering a two day HEC-RAS Workshop.

This two day basic HEC-RAS training workshop provides users with an introduction to using the HEC-RAS program for performing steady, unsteady, 1D and 2D flow water surface modeling. Class graduates should be able to independently complete basic, steady-flow water surface profile analyses.  They will also become familiar with the capabilities and analysis of unsteady 1D and unsteady 2D analysis.

 The workshop utilizes lecture, class discussion, and hands-on problems. The format is generally lecture followed by a hands-on computer exercise where the participants will practice what they have just learned. The introduction, overview and some advanced issues will be presented. It is a fast paced technical training workshop. Attendees are asked to bring a calculator and a lap top computer with Microsoft Excel, HEC-RAS 5.0 and ArcMap loaded on the machine. Participants are encouraged to bring example problems and issues to class that they can share with the group during the class discussions.
