Very fine 2D Modeling

I’m a big fan of testing HEC-RAS to the limits.  What can it do?  What can’t it do?  These are questions we should all ask at the beginning of a project.  Can HEC-RAS actually prove to be a useful tool in answering hydraulic-related questions for our specific problem?  Shortly after coming to work at Kleinschmidt […]

HEC-RAS in Three Dimensions

Now this is the kind of post that gets you on The RAS Solution!  Cutting edge creative solutions to complex problems.  This is great stuff.  Thanks Michael for all the effort you put in to this. In today’s post we’ll cover two methodologies that leverage HEC RAS results to create impressionable and multi-dimensional flood visualizations. […]

Those Nuisance Cell Errors and Wedge Depressions

If you’ve been doing some 2D modeling, you most likely have run into what I call nuisance cell errors.  You see them while your model is running and they can really slow down your simulation as the RAS chugs through iterations to try to come to a solution.   The errors here are in the […]

Preview of the new Finite-Volume Approach for 1D Reaches

One of the most anticipated new features soon to come in the next major version of HEC-RAS (Version 5.1) is the option of running unsteady 1D reaches with a finite volume solution scheme.  This will be a fantastic addition to HEC-RAS.  Gary Brunner recently gave me a brief overview of the new finite volume feature […]

HEC-RAS 5.0.5 has been released!

HEC has released a new version of HEC-RAS called version 5.0.5 today.  This version is a bug fix only version (i.e. No new features).  Unfortunately in version 5.0.4 there was a bug in which User defined Manning’s n value override regions for 2D Flow Areas (called “2D Area Manning’s n Regions”), define in the Geometry […]
