2018 Conference - Hydrologic and Hydraulic Seminars

1st April 2018

Two new Seminars have been added to the 2018 FMA National Conference line-up on the afternoon of Monday 28 May. 

The sessions will be delivered by HDR’s Michael McMahon, Senior Hydro-meteorologist/ Climate Change and Resiliency Lead and Mark Forest, Practice Leader - Floodplain Management and Surface Water Modelling.

Seminar 1:
HEC-RAS 2D – New Features and Validation Testing

HEC-RAS has continued to evolve rapidly with new features, computational improvements, increased computational speed and other enhanced features with the new release of Version 5.0.4. 

This seminar will provide an overview and demonstration of these new features and the future 5.1 version enhancements.

Seminar 2:
High Resolution, Gauge-adjusted Radar Rainfall: The Next Level of Modelling Storm Runoff

Attendees will learn a methodology that utilises GIS and radar data supplied from the Bureau of Meteorology to recreate a given current or historic storm with a high level of spatial and temporal accuracy. 

For information go to the Conference website.

Also, we will shortly be announcing details of the Thursday afternoon workshop Implementation of Australian Rainfall and Runoff for those not attending the Annual General Meeting.  

The new guidance has now been out long enough for most consultants to have tried applying it to one or more studies, and they have probably had a few challenges along the way. 

This is a good opportunity for the flood modelling community to share their learnings, tips and tricks.
