Unsteady flows in rivers

This course covers the introduction and analysis of unsteady flows in open-channels (e.g., rivers). Strong emphasis is given to application of efficient numerical techniques and computational procedures to river routing and flooding. The course focus primarily on one- and two-dimensional flows.

Course syllabus (Fall 2016)


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

Sready flow 1D: HERE

Unsteady Flow 1D: HERE

Unsteady flow 2D: HERE

Tutorial 2 (includes data): Tutorial on using TELEMAC-2D for flood inundation mapping in Steady and Unsteady Flow Conditions
