Explore how U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Risk Management Center (RMC) software can be used to develop accurate and high-quality flood hazard analyses, essential for dam and levee risk assessments. This course shows how RMC-BestFit and RMC-RFA software can increase the quality and timely delivery of flood hazard products, such as flow-, volume- and stage-frequency curves, understand how data can impact risk-informed decision-making when managing and mitigating flood hazards, and determine the importance of developing defensible flood hazard curves.
By the end of the training, participants will have the expertise needed to perform routine and non-routine flood hazard analysis for a dam or levee risk assessment using RMC software. In addition, participants will be able to:
• Perform and review flood hazard analysis using the RMC-BestFit and RMC-RFA software
• Identify data needs for flood hazard analyses commensurate with the purpose, type and level of risk analysis
• Develop flow, volume and stage frequency curves
• Interpret and communicate flood hazard analysis results
• Develop a network of peers for future collaboration
Fundamental (100) level courses focus on defining a basic survey of concepts and content. These courses are considered introductory and do not require prerequisites.
This training course is designed for mid-level hydraulic engineers and hydrologists who have a basic working knowledge of and experience with flood hazard analysis. This course is appropriate for participants with all levels of experience with RMC-BestFit and RMC-RFA modeling software.
This three-day, in-person course will include lectures, case studies, and demonstrations from USACE instructors, as well as hands-on exercises, group discussions and quizzes.
