    With the rapid advance of technology, why should we be limited by outdated hydrology and hydraulics methods? Although public domain software has made 2D hydraulic calculations accessible, the simplicity is debatable. While recent regulatory discussions have indicated that 1D hydraulic modeling could become a thing of the past, are our tools ready and capable of making the leap? In truth, 2D hydraulic modeling and 2D hydrologic calculations should be the foundation of the way forward. In this class, we'll explore how to adopt 2D hydrologic and hydraulic modeling using Autodesk tools such as ReCap software, AutoCAD Civil 3D software, InfraWorks software, and InfoWorks ICM. The benefits of a 2D hydraulic model are significant, saving lives and allowing engineers to make better informed and valuable decisions, such as mitigation design or risk reduction. Join us, and let's learn how to improve your hydraulic skills and discuss the fundamentals of 2D integrated catchment modeling.
