2D Modeling and Matrix Riprap Save Millions on Transportation Flood Recovery Projects

By Will DeRosset, PE, CFM, and Anthony Alvarado, PE, CFM The Colorado Department of Transportation recently published several case studies celebrating major progress in effective design in flood recovery projects. The projects all relate to designs implemented in the recovery from devastating 2013 flooding. The key takeaways are: 2D hydraulic modeling and spatially explicit analysis… Read More »

Benefits of 2D Modeling for River Hydraulics

By Dusty Robinson, PE Two-dimensional (2D) hydraulic models are not new to the industry; they’ve been in use for over 25 years. However, older 2D models required highly experienced users and were typically used on complex projects; the technology was expensive and cumbersome. Now, advances in computer technology and 2D modeling engines along with increased… Read More »
