June 27 - 29, 2017Where:
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. Experience will be gained in applying the methods with the program Hydrologic Modeling System (HEC-HMS). Where possible, applications will emphasize the Hydrologic Computations for Dam Safety.
1. Methods to simulate runoff from storm rainfall response to rainfall.
2. Estimating hydrologic abstractions
3. Transforming excess rainfall utilizing unit hydrograph theory
4. Running the HMS model on several real world problems
5. Estimating uncertainty in modeling the runoff
This is a BASIC Level seminar. Participants should have a bachelor’s degree in engineering, science or similar fields or related experience.Details
June 27 - 30, 2017Where:
September 10 - 14, 2017Where:
JW Marriott, San Antonio, TX
The annual conference of the Association of State Dam Safety Officials will take place in the San Antonio Hill Country. Dam Safety 2017 is one of the leading conferences in the United States dedicated to dam and levee safety engineering and technology transfer.
October 02 - 03, 2017Where:
A Retirement Symposium and Celebration honoring the career of Professor Anil K. Chopra will take place on Oct. 2-3, 2017 at UC Berkeley.
Prof. Chopra retired from the faculty at UC Berkeley in 2015 after 46 years of service, and currently holds the position of Emeritus Professor there. He has made fundamental and important contributions to earthquake engineering in both research and teaching. He is particularly well-known for his extensive work on dam analysis, and has been recognized as one of the most influential people in that area.
The symposium will feature a lineup of prominent national and international speakers who are former students and close collaborators of Prof. Chopra.
October 11 - 13, 2017Where:
A three-day training focused on identifying hazards and vulnerabilities of dams and developing an integrated Security and Public Safety Program is being offered in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania from October 11-13. Participants will engage in educational opportunities around best practices with regard to public safety and security, including an all-hazards risk assessment practical exercise at a hydropower run of a local river dam. Sponsored by Gannett Fleming, the workshop is led by experts in dam safety engineering, regulatory compliance, security and public safety.Details
October 17 - 19, 2017Where:
October 14 - 20, 2017Where:
Kelowna, British Columbia
October 24 - 27, 2017Where:
New Orleans Marriott, New Orleans, LA
Join us for our 42nd Annual Conference in the Big Easy where you will network with the largest gathering of practitioners specializing in the deep foundation industry; attend special lectures featuring our world-renowned keynote speakers; learn about innovations in design, construction and delivery of deep foundations; become updated on design, construction, QC/QA and risk assessment/management; hear about DFI’s global initiatives and research to promote foundation safety, quality, durability and sustainability. There will also be an Exhibit Hall featuring 120+ companies.Details
May 15 - 18, 2018Where:
Hydraulic engineering is one of the most challenging fields in civil engineering and becomes more and more important in times of climate and demographic change. Particularly, the flow around structures is of a complex nature and flow phenomena are still not fully understood. This symposium aims to bring together experts working in the specialized field of hydraulic structure design from both, research and practice communities. It will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of recent advances in knowledge as well as future needs.
The symposium is yet another event in a series of successful workshops and symposia organized by the IAHR Hydraulic Structures Committee during the last decade – e.g. ISHS2016 (Portland, USA), IJREWHS2016 (Lübeck, Germany), IWHS2015 (Coimbra, Portugal), ISHS2014 (Brisbane, Australia), IJREWHS2014 (Spa, Belgium), IWLPKW2013 (Paris, France), IWLHS2013 (Aachen, Germany), ISHS2012 (Porto, Portugal), and many more.
The 2018 ISHS edition will be held in Aachen, Germany. The surroundings of Aachen are characterized by a long tradition in hydraulic engineering being reflected in a large number of dams, weirs and other structures as well as a high density of consultancies and local water associations.Details
