Basic HEC-RAS Workshop

January 14-16, 2019

Riverside County Flood Control and Water Conservation District

1995 Market Street

Riverside, CA  92501

8 a.m. – 5 p.m.



This hands-on 3-day workshop prepares water resources professionals to use the HEC-RAS (Hydrologic Engineering Center River Analysis System) in real world situations. Participants learn how to compute water surface profiles, analyze bridge/culvert hydraulics, and conduct floodplain studies using the steady flow capabilities of HEC-RAS.



$895 FMA Members/$925 Non-Members



Registrant Information:

Registration deadline is December 31, 2018. To register, visit the FMA web site. Seating is limited to 25 students, so register early.

INSTRUCTORS: Martin J. Teal is a Senior Vice President of WEST Consultants. He has 30 years of experience in the areas of hydraulics, hydrology and sediment transport and has been involved in numerous river and floodplain studies. He is a frequent instructor of short courses for FMA, ASCE Continuing Education and others in the U.S. and abroad. Mr. Teal is a registered Professional Engineer in California, Arizona, Nevada Hawaii and Michigan; a certified Professional Hydrologist, and a Diplomate of the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers. He earned his B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, and his M.S. in Civil Engineering (Hydraulics) from the University of Iowa.

Rosa Smith is a Hydraulic Engineer with WEST Consultants. She has 4 years of experience in the areas of hydraulics and hydrology. She has worked on dam breach inundation studies and floodplain studies using 1D and 2D models. She led the Open-Channel Hydraulics lab, and the “Civil Engineering and Society” senior level engineering seminar at San Diego State University (SDSU). While at WEST Consultants she has also provided a basic HEC-RAS overview to the Open-Channel Hydraulics class at SDSU. She earned her B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of California, Davis, and her M.S. in Civil Engineering with a focus in water resources from San Diego State University.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Consulting engineers, water resource planners, engineers employed by local, state, or federal government agencies.


COURSE BENEFITS AND OUTCOMES: Participants will: learn how to use the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers HEC-RAS software; receive a comprehensive review of hydraulic principles for rivers, waterway bridges and culvers; understand and apply the principles in HEC-RAS steady state hydraulic models for analyzing confluences and bridge/culvert structures; gain critical hands-on experience through in-class workshops toward optimizing the next flood control or drainage project; and obtain valuable insights in model development and floodway optimization for FEMA flood insurance studies.
