Course Details

HEC-HMS is free software that is extensively used throughout New Zealand.  Auckland Council developed the TP108 document in 1999 to ensure consistency with the hydrological assessment of developed and undeveloped sites. This course is designed to show how HEC-HMS is used to comply with TP108.  For those outside Auckland it is still a methodology that is quicker and more efficient to generate flow and volume hydrographs.

This course will get in-experienced engineers and surveyors up-and-running so they can have confidence in running the software.

Elements include

  • Review of TP108
  • Overview of Precipitation-Runoff Processes
  • Basin Precipitation
  • Rainfall Loss Rates Computation
  • Transform Concepts
  • Channel Routing
  • Multiple catchment and stream modelling

The course will be based on complying with TP108 and doing a hands-on case study.  Extras will be taught if time permits.
