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
