Course ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ in EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) – January 2015

Another session of the course ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ was held on January 28th and 29th 2015 at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. The course was oriented to  end users, including engineering offices, administrations and researchers. The training was attended by 24 participants.

As for previous courses, theoretical presentations and application exercises provided the knowledge required to model hydrological basins with the help of RS MINERVE. External speakers have presented examples of hydrological applications in real projects.

In addition to the 2 days training, participants had the option to achieve at home a personal application project , proposed by the training team. Support was provided to help the participants in their work. The submitted reports were of high quality and participants showed to have well understood the functioning of RS MINERVE.

The course, taught by Javier García Hernández, Alain Foehn, Samuel Alesina and Javier Fluixá Sanmartín, from the Centre de recherche sur l’environnement alpin (CREALP) and some members of the Steering committee of Hydro10, was organized by the CREALP in collaboration with the Laboratory of Hydraulic Constructions from EPFL,  the Technical University of Valencia (Spain) and the Hydro10 Association.
