WRAP Short Course set
The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) will host the Water Rights Analysis Package (WRAP) Short Course on Aug. 6-8 at the Centeq Research Plaza on the Texas A&M University campus.
The two and a half day course will focus on the fundamentals of WRAP, a generalized modeling system for simulating the development, management, allocation and use of the water resources of a river basin and will include computer-modeling exercises. The course is designed for engineers and scientists employed by water agencies and consulting firms.
“Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the modeling system and proficiency in its application,” said Dr. Ralph Wurbs, associate director for engineering for the institute and a professor of water resources engineering in Zachry Department of Civil Engineering.
Instructors include Wurbs, and Richard Hoffpauir, a consultant with several years experience in the application of WRAP.
The WRAP course is part of TWRI’s new program to coordinate training courses for water resources professionals. This training program will educate professionals on the latest techniques, innovations and products of university research that can be translated into real-world application.
