USSD 2020 Fall Workshop Series
Introduction to Probabilistic Dam Breach Modeling
Oct. 6, 2020 9:00 am - 1:00 pm MDT
Eligible for 4 PDHs
This webinar will introduce attendees to the concept of probabilistic dam breach modeling and how it supports risk-informed decision making. Attendees will learn the theory behind the Monte Carlo Method and how it is applied to determining probabilities of flood from a dam breach event. The course will focus on methods for preparing the HEC-RAS dam breach model for use with McBreach, selecting statistical distributions for dam breach parameters, as well as interpreting and evaluating McBreach results. Time will be spent demoing the McBreach software so that attendees understand how to enter data and view results. The attendees will be led through a workshop exercise that will provide an opportunity to run the McBreach software with a real dam breach dataset.
Upon completion of the course, attendees will:
The target audience is anyone interested in dam breach modeling, emergency action planning for dams and levees, and long-term risk-based studies for dams and levees. While anyone can attend and learn about probabilistic dam breach modeling, attendees will get the most out of this webinar if they have some experience with unsteady HEC-RAS models (and even better dam breach models), and understand basic probability theory.
