HEC-RAS Alternatives

HEC-RAS is described as 'is designed to perform one-dimensional hydraulic calculations for a full network of natural and constructed channels. The following is a description of the major capabilities of HEC-RAS' and is an app. There are nine alternatives to HEC-RAS for Windows and Linux. The best alternative is GeoHECRAS. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Storm Water Management Model or ISIS Free. Other great apps like HEC-RAS are MIKE 11, GeoHECHMS, SOBEK Suite and MIKE Flood.

  1. GeoHECRAS icon

    GeoHECRAS

    • Windows

    GeoHECRAS speeds up HEC-RAS model creation using AutoCAD and GIS data sources. Work directly off of Google Maps, viewing and editing the model in 2D and 3D. Automated cross section cutting reduces time in building a model.

  4. GeoHECHMS icon

    GeoHECHMS

    • Windows

    GeoHECHMS greatly speeds up the creation, analysis, and review of stormwater models. It automates subbasin delineation, curve number (CN) computation using land use and soils maps, and lag time (time of concentration) computation.

    Integrated Cloud-Based Mapping:
Utilize world-wide high-resolution 3D digital elevation terrain data from map services for automated watershed delineation, computation of time of concentration and lag time. Utilize web-based mapping services for aerial orthophotos, FEMA flood maps, watershed delineation, river centerline alignment, and more.
  5. SOBEK Suite icon

    SOBEK Suite

    • Windows

    SOBEK is a powerful modelling suite for flood forecasting, optimisation of drainage systems, control of irrigation systems, sewer overflow design, river morphology, salt intrusion and surface water quality.
