Abstract : HEC-6 is a one-dimensional numerical model of river mechanics that computes scour and deposition by simulating the interaction between the hydraulics of the flow and the rate of sediment transport. This model was designed to be used for the analysis of long term river and reservoir behavior rather than the response of stream systems to short term, single event floods. HEC-6 does not simulate bank erosion or lateral channel migration.
