Abstract: The Corps of Engineers, Ft. Worth, Texas, Flood Plain Management Services Branch has developed hydraulic stream models for creeks and rivers throughout the state of Texas for the purpose of providing technical information for Flood Insurance Study Reports. These hydraulic stream models were developed using the HEC-2 computer program developed at the Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC) in Davis, California. HEC has provided updated software packages for the HEC-2 computer program and its supplementary programs. There are computer program modifications that provide additional data and improved computational procedures. These advancements are important in increasing the accuracy of hydraulic stream models.
