Abstract : Welcome to the Hydrologic Engineering Center's River Analysis System (HEC-RAS). This software allows you to perform one-dimensional steady flow, unsteady flow, and sediment transport calculations (The current version of HEC-RAS can only perform steady flow calculations. Unsteady flow and sediment transport will be added in future versions). The HEC-RAS modeling system was developed as a part of the Hydrologic Engineering Center's 'Next Generation' (NexGen) of hydrologic engineering software. The NexGen project encompasses several aspects of hydrologic engineering, including: rainfall-runoff analysis; river hydraulics; reservoir system simulation; flood damage analysis; and real-time river forecasting for reservoir operations. This chapter discusses the general philosophy of HEC-RAS and gives you a brief overview of the capabilities of the modeling system. Documentation for HEC-RAS is discussed, as well as an overview of this manual.
