Two-Dimensional Hydraulic Modeling of Rivers at Highway Encroachments (VIRTUAL DELIVERY)
Instructor-led Training (ILT)
TRAINING LEVEL: Intermediate
CLASS SIZE: Minimum: 15 Maximum: 23
NHI-135095V Two-Dimensional Hydraulic Modeling of Rivers at Highway Encroachments is a 4-day virtual online training that provides a well-balanced mix of lessons, demonstrations, and exercises for a comprehensive introduction to two-dimensional modeling concepts, including; background data necessary to support a model, hydraulic modeling parameters, mesh development, model simulation parameters, model calibration, hydraulic structures, and reviewing two-dimensional model results. Extracting hydraulic parameters for use in bridge scour evaluation is also discussed. Each concept is demonstrated, and participants are given hands-on exercises to apply what they have learned. Once all modeling concepts are covered, a comprehensive exercise is provided for participants to apply their skills on a project from start to finish. Participants will receive a participant workbook that includes hard copies of presentation slides and step-by-step exercises. Electronic data needed for the exercises will also be provided. Following completion of this course, participants should recognize situations where two-dimensional modeling is preferred and use SMS to successfully compile, execute, and review results for a SRH-2D model on abridge or other hydraulic structure project.
NOTE: the community version of the SMS software package is sufficient for the training course, but a temporary pro version is provided to all participants to enable testing of the additional features.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Recognize the differences between 1D and 2D hydraulic models
Use background data in SMS for 2D modeling projects
Use SMS to setup and run 2D models
Visualize and review 2D model results
Add structures to 2D models
Evaluate 2D hydraulic parameters for use in bridge scour analysis
The target audience for this course is FHWA and state Department of Transportation hydraulicspersonnel and other Federal, state, local or consulting engineers who have responsibility for, or desire to work with, the hydraulic analysis and design of highway river crossings.
