For the flood evaluation, the HEC framework comprises the Hydrological Modelling System (HEC-HMS) and the River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) that models the hydraulics of water flow in rivers (1D) or floodplains (2D).
Staff use HEC-RAS software to perform steady backwater calculations on each stream individually, applying a uniform flow downstream boundary conditions.
