Abstract : The Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC) has been developing generalized computer programs since 1964. The first HEC-2 Water Surface Profiles program was released in 1969. The program was developed by Bill S. Eichert, based on his earlier program Backwater Computations - Any Cross Section. The capabilities of HEC-2, and other HEC programs, have evolved; primarily driven by project and application needs. This incremental program development has continued up to the 1990 release of HEC-2 with Federal Highway culvert capability. While incremental program development will continue at a modest pace, HEC has also embarked on an effort to design and develop the next generation of programs. The current HEC-2 package and the next generation goals are presented.
