State of the Art in Hydrologic and Hydraulic Modeling

Pull back the curtain on advanced hydrology and hydraulic modeling practices!

 1 PDH / 0.1 CEU

The evolution of hydrology and hydraulic model simulation have come a long way. Each method has its own set of assumptions, challenges, and applications that an engineer should understand before recommending a process for a given project. But choosing the right methodology and modeling software can seem like a daunting task considering the amount of error in the various methods.

Join us as well-known speaker Andy Reese (PE, LEED AP, D. WRE) and modeling expert John Covey (PE, CFM) pull back the curtain on advanced hydrology and hydraulic modeling practices. Reese will provide insight into yesterday’s methods, while Covey will discuss the applications and challenges for the state-of-the-art methods of today, including two-dimensional techniques for watersheds, open channels, and stormwater systems.

We will open up pandora’s box of common misconceptions of the newest approaches and share foresight as to the direction of the model simulation industry related to urban stormwater systems and flood risk management.

Are the latest tools really better? Or perhaps do the latest tools just require us to be better at understanding a given method’s limitations? Come explore these questions with us!
