Advanced HEC-RAS Software in AutoCAD
RiverCAD® is a sophisticated river modeling software that completely supports HEC-RAS and HEC-2 within AutoCAD and its own AutoCAD compatible stand-alone CAD environment. RiverCAD makes it extremely easy to compute water surface profiles for modeling bridges, culverts, spillways, levees, bridge scour, floodway delineation, floodplainreclamation, stream diversions, stream restorations, stream realignments, channel improvements, and split flows. RiverCAD reads and writes data from the latest versions of HEC-RAS and HEC-2. • Automates HEC-RAS and HEC-2 cross section cutting, analysis, floodplain mapping, and all related modeling tasks • Seamlessly runs HEC-RAS and HEC-2 in all versions of AutoCAD, Land Desktop, and Civil3D •Stand-alone version includes AutoCAD OEM which supports reading and writing of AutoCAD DWG and MicroStation DGN drawing files, without requiring the investment of acquiring an additional license of AutoCAD • Numerous automation mapping tools for extracting cross sections from various digital terrain data, contours, TINs, DTMs, DEMs, LiDAR, survey files, surveyed cross sections, etc. • Automatic mapping ofbank station locations, flow lengths, levee locations, ineffective flow areas, Manning’s roughness data from topographic map data • Automatic generation of floodplain and floodway maps, ready for FEMA submittal • Sophisticated bridge and culvert analysis, automating the process of designing and analyzing roadway crossings • Automated bridge scour computations for FHWA and state DOT roadwaystudies • Imports and exports standard HEC-RAS and HEC-2 model files, ready for agency submittal RiverCAD is the only software of its kind that completely automates HEC-RAS and HEC-2 within AutoCAD, Land Desktop, and Civil3D. Users of RiverCAD frequently state that their productivity is increased by over 200% compared with using the standard US Army Corps of Engineers HEC-RAS software. Both US andmetric (SI) units are supported.
Easy Model Development
RiverCAD is easy to learn and use. AutoCAD users can use RiverCAD with their existing AutoCAD drawings—quickly cutting cross sections from 2D and 3D contours, TINs, DTMs, DEM data, LIDAR data, survey point data, surveyed cross sections, existing HEC-RAS and HEC-2 data, and other digital terrain data. Bank station locations, flow distances,ineffective flow areas, levee stations, Manning’s roughness sub-areas, and other modeling data can be quickly extracted from the drawing. The HEC-RAS (and HEC-2) model runs directly within the AutoCAD environment, and the computed analysis results are displayed directly in the AutoCAD drawing. Floodplain and floodway mapping, base flood water surface elevation (BFE) contours, flow depth contours,cross section plots, and profile plots can be displayed in the AutoCAD drawing, quickly plotting the model results for the engineer. The completed HEC-RAS (or HEC-2) model can then be exported for agency submittal.
“We do a lot of flood control projects. RiverCAD cuts the time used to develop a model--allowing you to be more competitive in the consulting market.” Mr. Adolph Lugo Exponent, Inc....
