HEC-HMS
In this classroom seminar, participants will gain a practical knowledge of methods for simulation of runoff from storm rainfall. The methods covered relate to the processing of historical and hypothetical (design-storm) rainfall data; estimation of losses (infiltration); transformation of rainfall excess to direct runoff with unit hydrographs; routing of flood waves; calibration of model parameters; and modeling of runoff from watersheds. Expe...

Lessons Learned Regarding Seismic Defor...
Analyses of expected seismic performance of earthen dams subject to potential liquefaction hazard are routinely performed for high hazard dams. The State of Practice has increasingly evolved from simplified methods to the use of fully-coupled seismic pore pressure generation and nonlinear seismic deformation analyses (NDA) using either finite difference or finite element analysis frameworks. To evaluate the accuracy and reliability of these ND...

Explosive Phenomenology and Blasting Ne...
This webinar will provide information related to the effects of blasting near dams. The course will provide basics of explosive events to include loadings from ground motions and airblast, measurements of loadings, and criteria to determine damage limits of loadings. The course will present information to determine limits of explosive magnitude and distance that would be below damage levels to the dam. Participants should obtain a good knowled...

WinDAM - Overtopping and Internal Erosi...
WinDAM software estimates the erosion and breach outflows from overtopping flows and internal erosion flows affecting earthen embankments. This webinar will provide an overview of the WinDAM model and the various inputs needed. The webinar will also cover output from WinDAM. The webinar will target users and designers more than researchers. Five Learning Objectives of This Course: How could overtopping affect my earthen dam?How could internal...
