Workshop: Application of Numerical Models to Simulate Hydrology, Reservoir Operations, River Hydraulics and Flood Impacts

Monday, 24 June 2019
08:00 - 12:00

Tuscany # 11

Chair: Fauwaz Hanbali and Matthew McPherson, HEC


The Hydrologic Engineering Center’s Real-Time Simulation (HEC-RTS) program package is a comprehensive data management as well as hydrologic and hydraulic modeling system for short-term water management decision support. Through HEC-DSS (Data Storage System), HEC-RTS facilitates the real-time use of observed and forecasted precipitation, observed flows and stages, and other meteorological and hydrologic data. HEC-RTS also facilitates the integration of HEC-HMS (Hydrologic Modeling System) for forecasting flows throughout a watershed, HEC-ResSim (Reservoir System Simulation) for simulating reservoir operations and release decisions, HEC-RAS (River Analysis System) for forecasting river stages and producing flood inundation maps, and HEC-FIA (Flood Impact Analysis) for estimating potential flood impacts on life safety and agricultural and urban infrastructure. This short course will provide an overview of HEC-RTS and its data and modeling components. The course will also include HEC-RTS live demonstrations of real-time data acquisition, the use of gridded precipitation preprocessor, flow forecasting, reservoir releases determination, and flood inundation map generation for decision support.
