Abstract : User's manual for a pair of computer programs that enable users to calculate flood damage and benefit accomplishment attributed to flood control projects. The program run in batch mode on DOS and UNIX operating system computers and are called the preprocessor (PREPBA) and the analysis program (PBA). The majority of input is defined in PREPBA, which writes the information to two binary files. PBA reads the files and a hydrograph and computes the damage and benefit. The analysis period can be the duration of a single flood event or a longer period of record. The HEC-PBA package calculates agricultural and urban damage and benefits for use after an event or annually and summarizes the results in reports.
