Rapid Design and Analysis of Groundwater Remediation Systems *New Course*
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
University Human Resources Training Center
27 Road 1, Piscataway, NJ 08854
This new one-day, "hands-on" computer workshop will appeal to LSRPs planning groundwater remedies and to engineers and environmental professionals who need an easy "non-modeling" way to calculate groundwater flow and aquifer response for a variety of common engineered systems, including extraction wells, collector trenches, slurry or sheet pile walls, permeable reactive barriers, and funnel and gate remedies. Attendees will receive instruction, and participate in a series of hands-on exercises, in which they will evaluate aquifer draw down; optimize pumping well extraction rates; determine groundwater flow paths, velocities, and residence times; estimate system capture zone extent; create graphics with groundwater contours and path lines; and examine other aspects that should be considered when designing, evaluating and optimizing groundwater remediation systems. Attendees will be introduced to a set of "calculators" that, with simplified site conditions, can serve as a screening tool to produce preliminary remediation designs. More information here


December 3-5, 2014
HEC-RAS: An Intensive 3-Day Workshop
8:30 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Cook Campus Center, New Brunswick, NJ
Rutgers University
There's no question that HEC-RAS is an incredibly powerful tool but it's also no secret that it can be overwhelming, challenging and, in the hands of an inexperienced user, the end result could be numerical instability and severely flawed analyses. Can you afford that outcome on your projects? To make sense of this program, we've recruited Joe Skupien, one of the most highly rated instructors in hydrology and hydraulics, to teach this 3-day hands-on training class. In this intensive three-day workshop, led by Joseph Skupien (an expert with more than 25 years of NJ stormwater management experience), you will get a comprehensive overview of the steady flow capabilities of the current version (V4.1) of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Hydrologic Engineering Center River Analysis System program (HEC-RAS).
