Stanford Gibson trains on HEC-RAS in India
ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Stanford Gibson, a senior hydraulic engineer from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer - Institute for Water Resources, Hydrologic Engineering Center delivered training in Roorkee, India from Sept. 26-29 on their modeling and simulation software, known as HEC-RAS (River Analysis System). Gibson demonstrates how the software helps engineers analyze and solve water challenges ranging from a single river reach, which is a section of a stream or river, up to a network of channels, all of which is beneficial in predicting where it might flood. Funded by the U.S. State Department and in coordination with the Pacific Ocean Division, IWR leads trained 30 delegates from the National Institute of Hydrology (NIH), on the integrated hydraulic methods and geospatial capabilities within HEC-RAS, and its ability to handle complex modeling.
