Optimization in Water Resources Engineering

This course will present the fundamentals of optimization techniques such as non-linear methods and genetic algorithms and their applications to various water resources engineering problems (e.g., optimal operation of multi-objective and multi-reservoir systems, flood control, optimal design of water distribution systems).

Course syllabus (Fall 2017)


Tutorial 1: HEC-RAS 1D and 2D. Tutorial on using HEC-GeoRAS 10.1 with ArcGIS 10.1 and HEC- RAS 5.0.3 for flood inundation mapping in Steady and Unsteady Flow Conditions (1D and 2D)

The data required for tutorial 1 is available
