Floodplain Modeling Using HEC-RAS

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


If your work or academic studies involve floodplain management, then a copy of Floodplain Modeling Using HEC-RAS needs to be on your desk. This comprehensive textbook offers expert instruction and practical advice for floodplain modelers and managers. It then goes a step further by reinforcing the concepts presented using the worldwide standard simulation tool, HEC-RAS, which was developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Hydrologic Engineering Center. 

In Floodplain Modeling Using HEC-RAS, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers´ veteran Gary Dyhouse walks you through a complete floodplain study, from the planning stage to determining the floodway. No more wondering which of the vast number of variables to adjust in your model. Get the "inside" guidance you need to successfully apply HEC-RAS to your projects. Topics covered in this text include: 
•An easy-to-understand introduction to open channel hydraulics 
•Planning floodplain modeling studies with defensible time and cost estimates 
•Modeling bridges, culverts, and other special features 
•Calibrating and operating models for peak performance 
•Modeling floodways, including coverage of FEMA flood insurance guidelines 
•Developing routing information for use in hydrology programs 
•Designing and evaluating channel modifications 
•Analyzing bridge scour 

About the Software Included
