Abstract : The Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC) of the United States Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), serves the Corps in the area of hydrologic engineering and analytical planning techniques. The purpose is to assist Corps professionals in applying state-of-the-art technology to planning, design and operation problems in the water resources field. This is accomplished by developing new procedures and techniques (primarily computer programs), teaching use of the programs in formal training courses, developing and maintaining a library of state-of-the-art computer programs, and assisting Corps offices in applying the programs to current studies. This paper presents the HEC's goals and procedures necessary to develop and support the library of HEC computer programs. It also briefly overviews the 87 programs that are presently in the library.
