DLS-104: Best Practices in Dam and Levee Safety Risk Analysis

When:

June 13 - 17, 2022

Where:

Louisville, Kentucky

𝗖𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲 𝗢𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗶𝗲𝘄

Learn best practices for estimating dam and levee safety risks considering hazards, system response, and consequences. The basis for this course is the Best Practices in Dam and Levee Safety Risk Analysis Manual, developed jointly by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and Bureau of Reclamation (USBR). Designed with cross-discipline experience in mind, this course summarizes the governance and guidelines relevant to dam and levee safety risk analysis, provides an overview of probability and statistics, and describes methodologies for estimating and portraying risks, and for building the case for risk estimates.

𝗧𝗮𝗿𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗔𝘂𝗱𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲

This five-day, in-person course is designed for mid-level project managers, engineers (structural, hydraulic/hydrologic, mechanical, electrical, geotechnical, construction), geologists and economists, with 5-15 years of experience, who are involved in semi-quantitative and quantitative risk assessments for dams and levees. This course will include lectures and demonstrations from USACE instructors as well as homework, hands-on exercises, group discussions and a final exam.

DLS-203: LifeSim

When:

June 21 - 23, 2022

Where:

Portland, Oregon

𝗖𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲 𝗢𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗶𝗲𝘄

Explore how the USACE RMC uses LifeSim, a software tool used to estimate consequences from flooding. LifeSim provides the tools to determine the potential for life loss and economic damages to support risk assessments. In addition, the software provides the tools to perform alternative analysis to promote potentially cost-saving measures on projects to reduce risk.

𝗧𝗮𝗿𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗔𝘂𝗱𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲
