There is still time to register for the training course "2D Hydrodynamic Flow & Transport with SMS" March 10-13, 2009 in Orlando, Florida. For more information, see


In this hands-on, application oriented training course will provide you with the knowledge and tools necessary to solve 2D hydrodynamic modeling problems quickly and efficiently with the latest version of SMS. The course will teach users how to use SMS visualization tools to illustrate flow fields in 2D also. A series of lessons and tutorials are provided on RMA2 and FESWMS for flow modeling and RMA4 for transport modeling, including how to use the SMS Map module to create numercal models from high-level conceptual model data (GIS objects). SMS can be used to assist the analytical process by automating the mesh generation and editing processes, boundary condition definitions, and mesh renumbering and checking procedures. The course also discusses the conceptual modeling tools provided by SMS for more automation of mesh generation and tools to visualize the flow fields and water surface elevations.

The 4-day training course on SMS covers the following:

* Learn to use advanced 2D mesh generation tools in the Map Module of SMS.

* Learn to use GIS conceptual modeling to define mesh properties, boundary conditions, and material properties.

* Learn to perform automated mesh quality-checking to identify problem areas before running a model.

* Become comfortable running RMA2 and FESWMS.

* Discover tips and procedures for dealing with wetting/drying problems in your hydraulic model.

* Understand model verification and stability issues.

* Learn to couple sediment transport analysis with 2D hydrodynamic analysis.

* Develop knowledge of contaminant transport processes in 2D hydrodynamic modeling.

* Learn to create reports with CAD files, contour and vector plots, and film loop animations.

* Learn to calibrate your models with observation objects/virtual gages.
